den tbe attending physician at tbe
hospital, performed a difficult opera
tion this morning on John Reilly, the
young boy who was so badly injured
some three weeks ago by baving tbe
lower part of bis abdomen crushed and
mangled by a mine car. His injuries
were sneti that Dr. McFadden
decided that io ordsr to assist naturs
in the healing of tbe wound, it was
necessary to resort to skin gracing.
Two little sisters of the boy, aged 9
aud 11, consented to make the sacri
fice, und went to the hospital yester
day morning at the appointed time.

Keawen, the resident physician, were
