N. R. TO BUILD LINE TO FORM JUNCTION FEARED HE "Fruit-a-tives" Gyred Him TDI Can Heal Skin Cut in Day Broken Leg in Four Days New York. Jan. 3.-Dr. Alexis Cur-rell, cf the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, who received the Nobel Prize for medicine in 1!)12, is the first to announce a great scientific discovery In IMS. III'the ..current issue of the Journal of Experimental' Medicine," the' official organ of tho Rockefeller Institute, u>t-6d January 1, lie predicts as the result of a series of experiments which have been in progress since 1907, the possibility .of...healing a cutaneous wound In less, than, a. day, and the Te-Ijair of a broken leg in four days. It is'declared on the highest authority that this is, perhaps, the most important of the young scientist's hiany wonderful surgical and"biological discoveries, as well as the culmination of his laboratory work. Although Dr. Carrell does not mention it in his preliminary report, the assertion Is also made that the pre-jiarative process may become applicable, not only in cases where the tis-aues have been divided, as in knife wounds, hut in cases where the large areas of tissues have been destroyed in; various parts of the body by disease. Dr. Carrell's latest discovery i8 the result of speculation as'^to the manner in which cells multiply, and thus affect the growth of tissue. If it 'hvfere posstble, he argued, to become Separated of this knowledge,.it ought to be possible also to promote this . proliferation of cells' and the consequent growth of connective tissue by artificial means. His important discovery is almost '-'.concealed beneath this ihocuous caption: "Artificial activation of the growth in vitro of connective tissue." Aided by knowledge of the fact that the growth of the body is dependent in many 'respects on the more or less mysterious activities of some of the ductless glands, the thyroid, for Instance, he applied a mixture of thyroid extract and macerated portions of other organs of the ,'oody to cutaneous wounds-. The results were 'wonderful. They hear out tho statement that "if the rate of the reparation of tissues were activated ten years only, a cutaneous wound would heal in less than twen- tj-four hours, and a fracture of tiiie leg would be cured in four days. After experiments On live animals, he found that the laboratory work could be carried ou much more easy and ii could be observed more carefully by using tissues which had boon removed from animals and kept alive in a suitable media in glass jars. This was done, and the specimens were treated with pulp of various strengths made from extracts of the thyroid gland and moceated sections of spleon. liver, heart muscles, kidney, blood corpuscles, etc. Some of the specimens of connective tissue were kept in a solution of blood plasma alone, and these were known as controls. Tihey were simply used ns standards of comparison to show tha..difference lr. growth between fhem and the specimens which were ke'pt'in'the different extracts which it was hoped would promote notable reparative-action. TI13 results exceeded Dr. Carrell's examinations in most cases. For .instance, in a specimen of connective tissue kept in one' of the combinations of extracts, it was found that the iucrease In growth was thirty times greater in twenty-four hours than in one of the "controls" specimens. The most, active extract was found to be that prepared from embryonal tissues. This increased the growth forty times more than that of a control specimen of tissue preservod in a solution of normal plasma in the same length of time. In other 'words, if this were the. ,pr'actical application of Dr. Carrell's 'discovery to a wound; that .it would heal normally in forty days;'* it would "really heal in one day under; the application of the.-proper extracts.  The different kinds of extracts used in the experiments showed healing powsrs ranging from three to forty limes greater than normal plasma. Calgary, .),,n. :>.-William FT. Will-son, st'MTt.iiy hi the. Calgary board or trade, luis ^orir to Winnipeg to interview Manager McLcad, oi the Canadian N'ui'tlii'ni railroad, in conjunction with A. K. Holmes, of Prince Albert* and Urn delegate of,the North HaUlefon! board of trade, regarding the proposal to link up Prince Albert, Norili Baitleiord and Calgary by a direct |im\ Mr, Willson left Wednesday uitrlit. The proposal was favored by the. Calgary board of trade when the matter was brought up by delegates from North llattlcford and this step was decided some time. ago. The delegates fron- the three interested places .will or'leaver to persuade Manager McLeod thai the line would be a paying proposition and that there will be in the future enough traffic to warrant its construction. Link Witli Hudson Hay The idea is to have the Canadian Northern, build sufficient lines to connect their present track with the Hudson Bay railway, which will- be constructed soon. If this is done there will he a direct line from the. Hudson's Hay to Calgary and then when a line of .steamships is put on tho route 1o the chosen Hudson Bay port, from European merchandise into the prairies at a much lower cost than at present. It will also be.possible then, to ship prairie grain out via that route. The result will be that Calgary will have, another outlet for grain. This one would be a much more rapid route than the Panama canal route. It is believed that the C.N.R. will struct this line. The delegates from view favorably the proposal to construct this line. The delegates from the three interested boards of trade have gone to Winnipeg with plenty of data and estimates to lav before Air. McLeod, and thev arc hopeful of. a favorable hearing. Ifowever, it is j improbable that any definite answer , will be given by the C.N.R. for some time. It will iie necessary for the company to go thoroughly into the question before making a decision.

I tried numerous doctors and all kinds of medicines, but received no relief until advised to try "Fruit-a-tives" by Mr. McCready of St. Stephen, and am pleased to say that I now enjoy excellent health.

JUDGE SCORES THE AMERICAN PRESS SENT THREE ?JEWSPAPER MEN TO JAIL FOR ALLEGED CONTEMPT OF COURT FLORENCE GAMBLE OF DES MOINES HAD 500 BACHELORS ON A STRING . Ottawa. Jan. 3.-The board of railway commissioners will conduct its first session of the new year commencing on Monday next. Thirteen cases are down for hearing, chiefly oi minor importance and mostly dealing with local complaints and applications from various eastern lo'ca'itics. The first 12 .ire not expected to take up more than the Monday and probably the nrorning of the Tuesday ses-, sions, but the last case on the list, it is believed, will occupy the attention of the board for several days thereafter. This is the adjourned hearing oi the now famous western rates inquiry. At the last session of the inquiry at Ottawa, counsel for the railways held the floor throughout and submitted exhibits which for careful preparation and extensive statistics constituted a somewhat formidable defense. At the conclusion of the sitting the hearing was adjourned for three weeks, but at the instigation of the Dominion and provincial council a further adjournment was granted in order that time might he given to digest, the great imss of material submitted. At the coming sitting counsel for the Dominion and the provincial governments will be called upon to conduct a rebuttal of the defense submitted by the railways. It is generally conceded that upon the success of that rebuttal will very largely depend the success of the case. In fact the present stage of the proceedings is believed to be the most important. Other hearings of the present sitting of the board will be an order requiring the Michigan Central railway, the Pere Marquette railwa-the'T. H. & B. railway to show catise why they should not be required to adopt and put into, force the uniform code of rules approved by the board for the operation of Canadian railways.

In the past there hav.j been many complaint's on account of the misunderstandings that have arisen through the departments' not being in proper touch with each other. The present arrangement will be subject to alteration, the commissioners hoping in the near future to have every department working thoroughly in harmony with the rest. For a start Commissioner Sanvis will have charge oi paving, sidewalks, grading, parks and boulevards, tire department and health office. Commissioner Grave.s will be known as the utility commissioner, as he will have under his direction the street railway, electric light,, water, and also the sewers until some other arrangement is made with regard, to the last named section. It being desired t0 relieve the mayor of much of the heavy work, he will deal with police matters, and the various ofticers in the city hall, including the city clerk's, city treasurer, city solicitor, controller, storekeeper, and assessor.
