Ilobort TIrup. of 1112 Jifiiyctle
tiret, who had u part of ills nose
bitten off by a horse several weeks
ago, will' not surfer from any noticeable
deformity, thanks to the skill of the
modern physician. The young man was
In the employ of Helser fc Wnrnke,
and when the linn purchased a new
team, he wont to the .stable to look
them over, and as he was admiring
them, one of the homes snapped at
him and bit off a portion of his nose.
When he was taken to the hospital,
the physicians decided upon a skin
crafting process to replace the imper
fect nose. Tlgue underwent live oper
ations, In which pieces of flesh were
cut from his arm and grafted onto his
nose. The operations have boon so
successful that he expects to be dis
charged from the hospital next week.
At first the physicians expected to
attach the flpph from th( arm on the
nose and sever it afterwards, hut this
was deemed impracticable and the
open grafting process was resorted to,
with the above-mentioned result.
A peculiar coincidence in connection
with the cafe was that the horse died
about the time tile second operation
whs performed on young Tlgue.

A Chemical Renctloii That Astound

nancy tiiillieilaiid, "in Alu-ler's.
The I'ncetloiis chemist, once took nn
ortllnni'y cotton hatielkurohieL' atiel
Ko.ikeel It in nitric iinil sulphuric acltls,
Then, after it time, he took It out iitul
lln.spel It carefully mo as to remove the
free acid. It looked then like any other
cotton handkerchief. It went to the
vahlienvonmn, who puL It throusrh all
the wuteiH that handkerchiefs ro
tliroiiKli, hunt;- It out on the line, and
took it In again when it was dry. She
spread It out on the lioniiiK-bounl, put
tho hot Iron on It, and It went away.
There was a flash, a puff of smoke, and
then no handkerchief, not even tlio
ashes of one. When you consider how
frightened the washerwoman must
havu been at such koIhrs-oii In the
broad, open daylight, how worried she
must have been lest the gentleman
should think she had stolen his hand
kerchieffor she was an honest wo
man 1 make no doubt whatover, at
least as far as cheap cotton handker
chiefs were concerned and, of course,
she thought ho wouldn't believe her
when she told him what hail become
of it, you will sft nt once that this Is
leally a very line joke Indeed, and
ought 10 have been In Die Fllegeudc
What happened to the handkerchief
vas what happens to the maiiiifiicturu
of gun-cotton, Tlio sulphuric, acid
takes the water nut of tho cellulose
and tho nltrle acid makes an arrange
ment whereby a certain amount of nl
tryl gets to take the place of It so that
when lire Is applied it all burns at
once. Btarcli Is the same thing chem
ically as cotton, same proportions of
carbon, hydrogen and oxygen, only the
