Ireland, he said, was hunted by sixt

Grief over the death of the greatest of

as was that of both Norway and Sweden.
The political situation Is critical. The
Radical -cabinet, of which M. Zahle Is
chief, has had no success during the Rys

to obtain a majority by an appeal to the

any change in the situation will result.

Dr. Doen. whose "elixir of life" has
set all Europe talking, is generally con
sidered to be one of the wealthiest medical
men In the world, ln Paris it is proverbial
that It is impossible for a healthy man
to get an interview with him. His patients
come from all parts of the world; men and
wemen from as far as South America and
New Zealand, afflicted with the dread die
case of cancer, have made their way to
Paris to consult him.
In appearance Dr. Doyen is a man of
middle size, broad-shouldered and fair

eyes are blue, keen and Inscrutable. His
hands, (reat. brawny, with thick, spatu
late fingers,, have been described as those
of an aristocratic butcher.
All his operations are conducted in his
private hospital in a six-storied building
ln the Rue Duret. where he employs a
large staff of trained nurses and a num

Dr. Doyen has had all his more Important

object being to leave exact records of his

"you staked your wife ln a 'zanxibar with
