-PINT OF BLOOD TO FRIEND.
PASCO MINISTER MAKES SACRIFICE IN VAIN.
WALLA WALLA, Wash., Dec. 5th.-Sacrificing his own blood to save the life of a friend, the Rev. A. A. METCALF of Pasco performed the last act of heroism, but in vain. Freeman KEITH was brought here from Pasco for an operation for gangrene of the bowels. A second operation was necessary, and the loss of blood weakened the man until death was imminent.
The Rev. Mr. METCALF offered his right arm, from which a pint of blood was taken and transferred to the patient's right arm by anastomasis, a rare operation. KEITH was too far gone for relief and died shortly after the operation.-Rev. A. A. METCALF will be well remembered by our citizens, having been a resident here at the time of his marriage to Miss Ella DUYREE of this village. the operation above referred to left Mr. METCALF so prostrate that his wife, who was here at the time was called home by wire, though she was ill at the time. We are glad to learn that both are now much better. (24 Dec 1908)
