be parmitted to grow at the top and be

should ba so grown as to arch over tbo

the removal ot the parotid gland tor a

possesses peculiar Interest from tbe fact that
more than a year ago some of the leading
surgeons of this Btate and New York refus

nerve. One hour and a quarter was requir

at the Scranton private hospital by Or. H-
