years ago a small spot showed upon
my left ankle. I wna worried and sent
for a doctor. He said It was eczema.
Ho drew a small bono from tho ankle
about tho slzo of a match and about
an Inch long. Tho small hole grew
to about the slzo 6t an apple, nnd tho

GIVEN A NEW BRAIN
Delicate Organ Is Grafted Into
Dr. Harry Cushlng, Noted Specialist,
Performs Marvelous Operation Suc
cessfully at Baltimore Hospital
Patient Is Recovering.
Baltimore, Md. An operation that
In the history of science has never
had a parallel, either In delicacy or In
skill, was performed the other day
for the second time in the Johns Ho
,klns hospital by Dr. Harvey Cushlng,
tho world-renowned brain specialist,
nnd the patient, as a result, Is on the
road to recovery. It is believed the
operation, which until a month ago
,was thought impossible by the best
authorities on brain disorders, will
prove a success.
The patient, William Buckner of
Cincinnati, came to Baltimore Novem
ber 23, suffering with a peculiar af
fection of the brain. For weeks bo
fore his arrival ho had been In a state
of semi-coma, except at Intervals.
He was placed under the care of Dr.
dishing. Ills case was a puzzling ono,
and after a number of X-ray examina
tions, during which photographs of tho
brain were taken, Dr. dishing discov
ered that a portion of the brain had
decayed and frayed tissues were caus
ing the healthy section gradually to be
Dr. Cushlng's conception was this:
To procure the brain ot another pa
tient as soon after death aB possible
andto transplant a portion of it Into
tho skull of Buckner. The brain had
to be healthy and from as young a
person as possible. The transplanta
tion of the dead brain and the procur
ing of it were two widely different
things, however, nnd this was the dif
ficulty confronting the physician,
when ono of his colleagues casually
mentioned that a child had been born
dead in one of tho wards.
Here was the opportunity. Dr. Cush
lng hurried to the ward and extract
ed the brain from tho dead child be
fore the body was cold. Meanwhile
Buckner had been prepared for tho or
deal. Then in view of about a score of
professorr. and students, Dr. dishing
performed his greatest operation.
He chiseled away the back of Buck
ner' s skull and with great care re
moved the entire brain, which was laid
on a piece of linen besido tho head,
and could clearly bo seen to quiver
as each pulsation of the patient's heart
was noted. The diseased portion waB
then severed from tho minor brain and

Something About Violet
New York. A eerie" of notable ex
periments In wireless telegraphy Is to
be tried in Paris April 23 during an
eclipse of the sun, which will obscure
four-fitths of its rays. It has been
noticed by sclentlsir. that the distanco
over which whclc&s messages can be
dispatched varies greatly, according
to the time of day and the direction.

which will not carry more than 700
miles during the day, enn bo hent two
or three times that distance at sun

When slower vibrations were used It

facts are due to the activity of the so
called ultraviolet rays of the sun, the
theory being that these rays arc a
