'Miracle Man" is Rather a Self Self-Advertising

(Current Comment)
Nineteen years ago Professor Lo Lo-renz
renz Lo-renz came from Vienna to Chicago to
give orthopedic treatment to the
child of a millionaire. From the time
he left his own city until he boarded
the steamer for Europe, his trip was
given publicity of an amount and
kind that savored more of the circus
performer than of the surgeon. That
visit undoubtedly left in its wake
blasted hopes and bitter disappoint disappointment
ment disappointment in the hearts of poor cripples
who, believing the newspaper reports
that Professor Lorenz had well-nigh
supernatural powers as an orthopedic
surgeon, were for one reason or an another
other another unable to get the "miracle man"
to treat them. The experience of 1902,
it seems, is to be repeated. Profes Professor
sor Professor Lorenz this time, according to
press dispatches, comes to give free
treatment to indigent American crip cripples.
ples. cripples. This at least is the ostensible
reason. Recent reports indicate that
not all the treatments are free but
that fees are being accepted for the
"private examinations." On this point
the papers quote Professor Lorenz as
"Of course, when people come to
see a physician or surgeon in a pri private
vate private office they expect to pay a fee
for exam nation and treatment. The
receipts for any single day were
never as much as $3000. The most
was about $1000."
To those with medical training, and
therefore having knowledge of the
facts, the publicity attending the
present visit is nauseous. But that
is its least indictment. The execrable
taste of the whole matter might be
forgiven if the public were to be the
real beneficiaries. As a matter of
fact, it is the public the crippled
public that is suffering from this
blatant advertising campaign. It is
the refinement of cruelty for sensa sensation
tion sensation seeking newspapers to hold out
to the crippled the false hope that Dr.
Lorenz is a "miracle man" who will
do for them what skilled orthopedic
surgeons in this country have been
unable to do. Medical men on both
sidrs of the Atlantic know that the
Austrian orthopedist has no phenom phenomenal
enal phenomenal ability that places him in a class
by himself. Professor Lorenz himself
knows this and admits it. The rer
suits, accomplished on his previous
trip were no better than the results of
American orthopedic surgeons of that
time. His most widely heralded
"cure" was not a cure; it was a result
as good as, but no better than, good
orthopedic surgeons the world over
constantly get. The accomplishments
on the present trip will doubtless be
those of any good orthopedic surgeon,
with the usual proportion of good,
bad and indifferent results. Perhaps
one benefit will be the arousing of
those crippled to seek competent med medical

it all will be the bitter resentment
and despair of those poor unfortu unfortunates

and while getting from American
surgeons the best that science has to

they only reach the "miracle man"
their cure would be assured. Such

bringing forth is deprecated by the
medical profession not because it is
in bad taste but because in its effects,
it is cruel.

While we are talking about a new
high school building, would it not be
wise to include in it a big auditorium
for the use of the entire community?
An auditorium is one of Ocala's needs.
The Temple theater does very well
for ordinary occasions, but is not
large enough for extraordinary; be-
side, some affairs for an auditorium
are bound to interfere with theatrical
' dates. An auditorium would also be

"He told a lie. because that Is the

"Won't you tell me a hit more?" I

"And Bullerton finally stole It Just
as you thought he would," I put in.
"He did. You are dreadfully care

old Haversack tunnel seemed to be a

"It Isn't quite all." I amended. "You

reached Atropia on the early morning

men Just as they were starting up the
mountain. Cousin Buddy Fuller had
told me how he had telegraphed to
Angels for Mr. Beasley, and I was
scared to death, of course, because I
knew what it meant So I borrowed
the Haggertys pony and came along
with the posse."
There was silence for a little time;
such silence as the clattering and
hammering of the carpenters and
steam-fitters permitted. Then I said:
"And when you got here, the first

thing I did was to call you 'Mrs. Bul Bullerton.

honestly, I don't"
"It was wprse than a crime," she
averred solemnly; "it was a blunder.
What made you do it?"
"Partly because I was a Jealous
fool ; but mostly because I was sore
and sorry and disappointed. I thought
Bullerton had beaten me to It"
"No," she said quite soberiy; "It
was Miss Handle who beat you to tt"
I gasped. There were tremendous
possibilities In that cool answer of
hers; prodigious possibilities.
"But say'" I burst out; "didn't I
tell you that Lisette had pushed me
overboard long ago?"
"I know. She was sensible enough
to see that you and she couldn't live
on nothing a year. But now that you
are rich, or are going to be . I'm

as your back was turned."
There we were; no sooner over one
hurdle before another and a higher
one must Jump up. I groaned and
thrust my hands Into my pockets. A
paper rustled and I drew It out It
was the telegram Buddy Fuller had
handed me, still unread. I opened it
half absently, holding it down so that
the glow of the nearest flare fell upon
the writing. Then I gave a little yelp,
swallowed hard two or three times
and nearly choked doing It, and read
the thing again. After all of which I
said, as calmly as I could:
"But, In spite of all that I had told
you about Lisette, you asked me once
to kiss you."
"Is is it quite nice of you to re remind

"I suppose I have ; yes."
"Well, don't ever let It disturb you
again. Because the real thing Is a lot

know. Listen to this : It's a wire from

For a minute there was a breathless
sort of pause, and I broke it.
"Jeanle, dear, was it Just common
honesty and good faith that made you
take all these chances, with the deed,
and with Bullerton 7"
"Yes, I'm commonly honest" said
the small voice at my shoulder.
"Bullerton Is a shrewd, smart fel fellow,"

that he never made such a bonehead

back. You must think something of

not to prosecute him for trying to

She looked down at her pretty feet
which were crossed.

said, "Kiss me again, Stannie." And

after the Jacksonian revolution, after
a brief period of hegemony by tavern

country editor.
The country editor let the lawyers,

The Cat's Eye.
The pupil of a cat's eye ordinarily
appears as a long, narrow oval, or a
straight vertical blari. line. The an animal

slits in the Iris of its eye, especially
when It faces the light In semi-darkness
the pupil widens into a beautiful
ovaL One is disposed to regard the
narrowness of the pupil as the distin distinguishing
guishing distinguishing peculiarity of the eyes of
cats. All animals of the cat family
share this peculiarity, according to the
authority we quote, yet the natural
shape of the pupil of the cat's eye is
circular. By varying the quantity of
light entering the eyes experimenters
have seen the pupils of the eyes of cats
and tigers change from straight lines
to perfect circles, and while under the
Influence of atropine, which suspends
for a time the muscular contraction
of the eye, they are always circular.
The normal shape of the cat's pupil is
the same as that of the human pupil,
but when submitted to the influence
of light its behavior differs. In a
bright light our pupils become very
small circles, while those of a cat
turn into ovals or narrow silts. The
general effect In either case is the
same, namely, to diminish the amount
of light passing into the eye. Ex Exchange.
