LIVES WITH NECK BROKEN.
Brooklyn Man Was Terribly Injured on
Ship Forty-eight Years Ago.
Having lived forty-eight years with
a broken neck , Edmund Mnlone , sixty-
seven years old , of Brooklyn claims a
record. lie says be owes his life to

At the age of fifteen Malone ran
away to sea from his home In Ireland.
In physique he was almost a man
then and four years later was aboard
a sailing vessel as an able seaman.
During u storm ho was pitched from a

There was no doctor on board , so
the boy stayed In his bunk until the
ship reached New York five weeks
later. "Every bone in his neck was
crushed , but by the time he reached
New York they had started to grow
together. lie went to a seamen's re
treat , lint for some strange reason his
case received little attention. Ills
arms were paralyzed , but ho regained
the use of them after two years. Then
Malone started to look for a job.
The broken neck gives him no dis
comfort , except that It is stiff , and he
can't turn his head without moving
his body. There is a large lump on
the back of his neck where the bones
have been thrown out of place.
Several days ago Malone went to an
eye and ear dispensary. A doctor ac
cidentally twisted his head while
treating n sore ear , and Malone ex
claimed , "Look out for that neck ; it's
broken ! "
The doctors gathered around and
proclaimed it the worst fracture of
the neck they had ever seen.
