lay Longanecker Missed Death on
Fiont Street by a Few Inches Last
Evening While Crossing That Thor
oughfare to Join Sister
A crowd of people gathered in front
of the Pakce theatre last evening wit
nessed a very narrow escape of a child
from being run down by an automobile.
Fay Longanecker, aged about 9 years,
and her small sister, Thelma, aged
aibout 5 years, were among the crowd.
An older member of the family directed
the elder sister to cross the street to
make a slight purchase at a novelty
Fay started on her errand and when
about halfway across the thoroughfare
little Thelma trotted after her, unno
ticed by her older sister. Coming up
the street was an automobile, which the
child did not notice. The driver of
the machine, however, pressed on the
emergency brakes and soon had the car
stopped. The little girl was just
missed, her clothes being soiled where
the right front tire brushed them.
Pauline Ney, aged about !t years,
had a simliar escape Tuesday evening
when she was returning Trom the Fel
ton school building. As she was in
the act of crossing Second street at the
intersection of Walnut street she collid
ed with a passing auto, but escaped
seiious injury by a narrow margin.

pampaign Only Now Beginning
Before beginning his sermon at the
tabernacle last night. Dr. Stough made
i the statement that he believes the
i work of the campaign has just
He told how h<> has means of knowing
the trend of affairs through the mem
bers of th« party, with whom he holds
a daily conference, through the exeeu
! tive committee and through the min
i isters, and that indications are that the
| campaign is only now beginning to
j have its full effect.
"I believe we ought to start the
j six weeks of this campaign," he said,
' a week from next Sunday night. The
I city hasn't begun to be moved yet. I
j want to say that I haven't run out of
I sermons yet. Understand, I am not'
I anxious to stay here a day beyond tine j
i six weeks, for I am anxious to get to j
my home for the Christmas season. 1:
feel though as if I were willing, if the 1
; spirit of God moved me, to give up the ;
] Christmas recess, \-es even the Altoona
| campaign which follows, if I could j
| only move this old city."
Scene at Calvary Presented
The great effort of the evangelist's
sermon was an attempt to have his au
| dience visualize the crucifixion of Je
j sus Christ.
Jn his impersonation of .Tc®us, Dr.
I Stough staggered across tihe platform
j with the weight of an imaginary cross
I bending his shoulders, then he gaaped,
tottered, fell to his kn-ees awl finally
with a loud groan lay full length "on
j the stones of the streets. He raised
himself 'partially, only to sink back
I again with a cry, under the heavy
| cross 'beaan supposed to be pinning him
'' My God,'' cried the evangelist,
| '' will people ever realize what Thou
i didst suffer on Calvary?"
He followed that scene immediately
j with a representation of the nailing
j of the hands and feet of Jesus to the
| instrument of torture, pretending to
j wield a heavy haimmer. ,
In closing, he impersonated Bara-
I bas, "tihe guilty man who had been
[ freed that an innocent man might be
| condemned," coming to Calvary and
| cringing before the cross gazing at the
' crucified Christ and crying" oi«t, "My
| God, He's hanging on my cross."
Brewery Employe Hits Trail
"Thy name is Baratoas, sinner,"
I said the evangelist, in making his ap-
I peal for. trail hitters.
Eig'hty persona accepted the invita
\ tion, among whom were nine married
j couples, and a large number of small
boys. One man said that he was the
! driver of a brewery wagon, and would
j give up his business whereupon Pro

' irog '' The Brewer's Big Horses.''

Surgeon Manipulates Patient's Heart
Until the Lungs Resume J
Their Work
Los Angeles, Dec. 4—A modern won- i
tier of medical science was consummat-1
ed yesterday afternoon at the Good |
Samaritan Hospital, according to the
statements of three physicians who say
that Mrs. Walter W. Alters, of 1022
Gramerey place, wife of the California
manager of the International Frnit I
Products Company, was restored to |
life after having been dead for ten j
"The 'raising' was not from a the
oretical death, or state of coma, as it
is ordinarily understood," said Dr. P.
M. Williams, who, with Dr. C. S.
Hutchinson, were the attending sur
"Mrs. Akers was actually dead. Her
heart had stopped its functioning;
there was no pulse; the ages were fixed
in the glare which spells for every
medical man the eternal sleep; there
was no response to the usual tests. The
patient was dead.
"The end came during the progress
of a major operation for laparotomy.
The operation was progressing in due
course when our attention was direct
ed by Dr. W. S. Holman, who was ad
ministering the anaesthetic, to the
woman 'g complete ' collapse—to her
death in fact."
Mr. Akers, who was awaiting the re
sult of the operation in the adjoining
room was summoned. The doctors went
to work. Nurses began the administra
tion of oxygen. Dr. Williams vigorously
applied himself to producing artificial
Dr. Hutchinson then inserted his
hand through the incision made in the
abdominal wall until the diaphragm
was reached. One finger grasped the top
of the heart; his thumb was at the
bottom. A slight compression, another
and another followed, until the phy
sician's hand was contracting and di
lating the organ in simulation of the
heart throbs. The lungs reluctantly
again took up their burden.
After that the patient rallied with
a marvellous rapidity, it is said, and
in a few minutes was so far recovered
that it was necessary to administer new
anaesthetic in order that the original
operation might be concluded. The
operation lasted more than two hours.
Dr. Hutchinson said last evening
that the patient was in normal and
satisfactory condition, with every
chance in her favor for a complete re
A complete report of the case is to
be mado to medical authorities.
At the Photoplay
Another famous Broadway-star Vita
graph production will (be shown at the
'Photoplay to-day, "Uncle Bill,'' in
which Miss Anita Stewart and her
most capafble Broadway-star cast ap
pear. This three-act comedy is not the
old-time scream, but a continuous
hearty laugh from start to finish. Pro
duced with only the Vitagraph's best
actors and actresses, it is a real treat
to see.
This picture had been booked for our
theatre a few weeks ago, but through
express delay was not shown until late
in the evening, but the fortunate pa
trons wiho did see it will be pleased to
hear of its return. Saturday Miss Al
ice Joyce appears in ' 'The Theft of the

For All Ordinary Mechanical Work the
Formula 3.1410 Is Used
The ratio of the length of the oir-
I cumference of a circle to its diameter,
I sought during many thousands of years,
has never been discovered. It has 'been
j known for decades of centuries, aiway
! back to the Aryans and to the Egyp-
I tians—or rather 'to the non-Egyptian
pyramid of Suphis 'builders—'that the
circumference of a circle is t hreo and
a fraction times longer than its diam
This fraction lias been souhit by
computers in every great nation from
•j rehi'storic times. Within modern times
it has been computed with accuracy and
la'bor in Germany ou't to
6'3 5 decimal places wit'h no end—there
is always a remainder to be reckoned.
But all of this work was useless, be
j cause 'high mathematics has shown that
i'tho string of figures wi>l never come to
i an end in any finite number of figures,
i And as these men cannot think of in
! fiwiby t.hev made the sym'bol of in
i finity and stopped wasting tim'e many
' years ago.
The circumference of a iriircle is 3.-
14159265 plus longer than its diame
ter. But in all ordinary mechanics, as
in factories, mac'hine shops and 'the
like, the number 3.1416 is used. Thus
t'ho difference between lengths of cir
cumferences of locomotive drivewheels
or any other made !by using one or the
other of these values could not be de
tected 'mechanically without micromet
ric measurement.—New York 'Ameri
Change of Doctors
"Oh, yes,'' she remarked in reply to
her incredulous friend's question. "I
changed doctors quite a long time ago,
'before last Christmas, in fact.''
"But 1 tihought you had such confi
dence in 'Dr. Healemf"
"Oh, so I did. But he's getting so
frightfully old fashioned, you know,
doesn't move with the times am! that
sort of thing at all. Perhaps you re
mem'ber me 'telling you how terribly I
felt the cold last winter?"
"Well, I we rut to Dr. 'Healem aibout
it and !he told me to wear flannel. Flan
nel, if vou please!"
" Yes."
