The Price of an "Open Town" A dispatch to the Chicago Tribune remarks that a certain Illinois city is "putting on the lid" •'because of the furore following the murder by gunmen of a gambler's wife. This city, it develops, lias been an "open town" for two decades; but this murder indicated the development of formidable, lawless underworld gangs, and city officials found a shut-down in order. Thus, onco more, is illustrated the curiousi dilemnia of American city officials. If they govern a city where popular sentiment favors an "open town"—and there are many such cities —they court the growth of a dangerous underworld organization, which fattens on tho revenues from gambling an'd booze joints.^ If they close the town up to choke off the gangsters the voters, deprived of their amusements, are.apt to rebel and put in a new regime. All in all, it is a peculiar, and somewhat discouraging, sign of the times. He's Slill Al The Bears and Bulls ' The present agitation in favor of laws or other regulations which would curb the activities of short-soiicrs on the stock market is probably all to the good, in that it at least emphasizes the extent to which common, ordinary gambling enters into the fluctuations of our isccuvityi prices; but while we are getting after the bear operator it might be an equally good thing to look into the activities of the bull, as well. Last fall's stock market crash undoubtedly was hurried along by bears. But it will not do to lose sight of the fact that the crash came because stock prices had gone up out of all proportion to actual values; and for that the bull, and not] the bear, was responsible. The operator who seeks to force prices up can bo, quite aq dangerous -to tho country's well-being as the operator who tries to force them down. The bear market ,could never have existed if it had not been preceded by an extended bull market; A California astronomer declares that ihcre are a number of planets yet undiscovered.

Dr. Hyman points out that not infrequently Hie heart will suddenly stop during the course of a air- glcal operation and that In such an emergency surgeons have been able not infrequently to resuscitate tlie heart beat by massaging ih e heart through the diaphragm. When the heart stops, the circulation of the blood naturally slops, and if tl:e circulation is delayed over a long period, death Inevitably follows. It is said that certain portions of-.the brain arc damaged irreparably after some five to eight minutes of the stopping of the circulation- On the other hand, the hair follicles in the skin may continue to be alive and to grow lianas long as 12 hours after tile heart has stopped beating. Various authors disagree as to the length of time after which're- suscitation may be possible. Tho longest interval concerned a man 70 years of age whore heart was revived by injection of a drug di- rec'.ly into the heart a half hour after ali Jgns of beating had ceased, and there an? other cases in which the heart had stopped from 15 to 20 minutes and the patients recovered following the use of this method. The physician must make a decision in eacli case on the basis of the conditions in the individual patient. If the patient is healthful, except for some acute surgical condition, a shock, an accident, or a collapse, an injection directly into tho heart may mean the restoration to life. If, on tlic other hand, the patient has a heart that is badly degenerated, very high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries, or if he has suddenly died from severe infection, the decision may bo against the use of this method. If a person is undergoing a sur,_ gical operation, the safer method is tion "A. D. 1848—M. P.
