"To drink.beer out of a jug," gays the boy, "where there iB beer, any body can do -th^t ; but to drink beer out of a jug where there is no beer, that's clever."

The crushed hum or us. or bone of the upper arm, was removed from a patient and its place supplied by the femur or thigh bone of a sheep. A labourw at the shipyards was hurt by a heavy weight, which fell on him. The bone in his left arm was so completely j shattered that, the doctors at the I hospital to which he was taken de cided that amputation was necessary The patient objected energetically to the loss of his arm and wanted to know if there was not any way in which the shattered part of his arm could be removed and replaced by something else.
