hobo, but the man who will not work
is .the hobo all over the land. Every

tv-:n 15 or 20 m:nuies is necessarily
dead. There are well authenticated
recorda of the resuscitation of per
sons who had been submerged for
half an hour or even longer. Such
cases , occur particularly In women
and children, in whom the fright at
Hading themselves in danger of
drowning brings on a collapse or
faint in which the heart and breath
ing stop and they sink, but low grad-3
life processes continue for a consider
able period. Strong men who have
bat lied for their lives and then sunk
are, not so often revived,' though if
taken with a cramp they too may euf
fer from ahock or fright with the re
sultant collapse , that Is apparently
nature's method of giving the longest
possible opportunity for life under
these circumstances. la such cases,
efforts to revive the drowned person
should not be abandoned until all
chanceg of resuscitation is gone,, says
the Journal of the American .Medical
association in a recent editorial on
this subject.
-Patients have been reported as not
breathing for 13 minutes to half an
hour and yet they have been reeuacl
tated. ' - -
Ordinarily the methods of resusci
tation -an anil mivht nrnnerlv . to . b
exercised at the scene of the accident,
Often the person is pronounced dead
even bsfore a physician has seen him.
Only rarely are such cases transport
ed to hospitals to be treated. .'The or
dinary methods of artificial respira
tion might well be carried on in an
ambulance and then in the hospital it
self. Recourse might, be had to any
procedure, even surgical, that teem to
give the slightest hope. Certainly In
the present state of our knowledge it
would seem that some direct irritation
of the heart muscle should-be tried
before the patient it pronounced dead.
Ths saving of even a few of these
young lives would be a very precious
Jdyance for mnefa fge ejfcn j,
