NOSES MADE AS COOD AS NEW.
Celluloid, Patience and Sometimes
He would not, with a peremptory tone,
Assert the nose upon his face his own.
And how could he If that nose were
fashioned of celluloid, gold, platinum
or even a baser metal? asks the New
York World. "Building a nose" sounds
queer, and yet that Is Just what sur
geons are doing almost every day.
Every surgeon who possesses mechan
ical ability enough to be called a "plas
tic Burgeon" will take a contract to
build a nose Just as a builder takes a
contract for building a house.
The operator, In the case of a man,
the bony portion of whose nose has
been destroyed, first removes the dead
bone until he finds healthy bone.
He is then ready to proceed with the
building. Holes are drilled Into the
sound bone for the reception of the
metallic frame work which is to sup
port the llesh that will give the nose
the appearance of having its natural
bony and cartilaginous support.
Proba' the most famous case of
nose-building is that of the late Dr.
Thomas Sabine. The operation was
performed at Bellevue hospital. The
patient's 1 nose had been entirely de
stroyed by a disease called lupus.
The surgeon transplanted the middle
finger of the patient's hand to replace
the nose. To the house surgeon fell the
task of destroying the nail. For this he
used a powerful acid. In relating hia
experience recently he said that he sup
posed his work had proved successful,
but after the finger had been trans
planted he found that the nail was in
clined to grow again, and he was
obliged to use the acid repeatedly be
fore it was finally destroyed.
There are surgical records of other
similar cases in many of which the nail
had grown on the "finger nose."
In ordinary cases where only the
bony portion of the nose has been de
stroyed, celluloid is said to prove most
satisfactory, as it is better borne in
living tissues than any other substance,
A case was recently shown at the
Academy of Medicine. The patient was
a young man whose nasal bones had
been destroyed through diseases. The
skin had fallen into the cavity.
The shape of his nose was restored
by an aluminum tripod. The surgeon
drilled a hole in the frontal bone for
the reception of one branch of the ap
paratus, while the other branches fitted
Into holes which had been drilled in
the upper Jawbone. To the untrained
eye the nose had every appearance of
. Bad Many Offers.
Africa is the greatest place in the
world for the new woman and the old
maid. For the former it has its
charms that would put the Bola de
Boulogne in a total eclipse, and for
the old maids it is a tropical paradise,
where young, unmarried men, bloom
in wild, tangled luxury the year
around. Mrs. May French Sheldon, the
African explorer, writer and lecturer,
is neither a new woman nor and old
maid, and yet she had sixty proposals
of marriage in one day from sixty
separate and distinct chiefs, each of
whom was more stalwart and ardent
than the others, and Mrs. French Shel
don was compelled to give each separ
ately the marble heart. And as for
the new woman, why, the African ex
plorer says they can give our brand
newest bloomer-rigged species any
number of cards and spades and then
discount them. Bebe ' Bwana, the
woman master, or the white queen
man, as the merry sultans and dusky
chiefs called Mrs. French Sheldon, has
penetrated farther into the mysterious
heart of that dark continent than any
other white woman has ever done, and
the other day she told a reporter a
number of interesting experiences
which she had among the many tribes
The sixty offers of marriage were
made one afternoon after she had form
ally received the sultan of one of the
interior districts in her tent which
tent, by the way, Mrs. French Sheldon
always arranged as near like a boudoir
In a well-appointed private bouse as
was possible. She was the first white
woman who had ever invaded that
district and the sultan appreciated the
honor and in his poor weak way tried
to give a sort of torchlight procession
and, strawberry festival in her honor.
His resources, however, were extreme
ly limited, and after he had sacrificed
a double portion of goats and had
salaamed before her until he was
threatened with curvature of the spine
he felt that something was still lack
ing and that his guest was not thor
oughly enjoying heraeif. Suddenly a
nappy thought struck him. Whenever a
straggling white man had wandered in
to his preserves it had been his cus
tom to unload sixty or eiglty wives
upon him and then dismiss him with
a sultanic "Bless you, my- children."
Why not reverse the ceremony with
the woman master? he argued to his
secretary of state for war. The secre
tary thought it was a capital idea and
:he chiefs of all the tribes or assembly
listricta were ordered before his ma
lesty and ordered to propose to the
Bele Bwana at once.

That there is nothing to the av

that is more unbecoming than a
bald head? Yet many careless
young men will comb ont a nice

be bald the remainder of their

Would tbey pause for a mom
ent's reflection they might well
know that the crowning beauty
of any person, as? nature so in

Our preparation has been on the
market for years and it does all
we claim for it. We have many
