With the recent preliminary akln

Wilfred Riley, aged 4 years, bearing
distinctive promise of success, the
more Important operation, of cover
ing the boy's torso with cuticle, will
take place at St. Joseph's hospital
Monday, Sept. 27, between the hours
of 9 and lo o'clock. The skln-grafing

ting up a hard fight for existence and
last Monday morning; Dr. C. C. Allison
took skin from his own arm, and from
the boys' llmba, and fixed It to the little
fellows' chest, to start the growth, which,
if successful, would enable the physicians
to complete the operation. It was thought
at first that the boy's mother would be
called on for a portion of the necessary
cuticle, but so many of the younger
physicians have taken such an interest In
"the kid" that volunteers aplenty are
ready and waiting to surrender a portion
of their own skin to make the work a
complete success. Those who have vol

Russell Burton Has
Exciting Time With
Bad Man and a Dog
Russell Burton, 4021 Harney street, is
just a regular 14-year-old kid, with an
ordinary youngster's experlenoes, but
within the last twenty-four hours has
led the life colorfully depleted by Juve
Friday afternoon Russell and a boy
companion, Vernon French, 2018 Howard
street, were coming down town by way
of an alley when a man suddenly sprang
from behind the corner of a building and
dragged Burton inside. Burton put up a
valiant fight, and finally managed to
kick himself loose. Instead of running
away crying ha Joined his "buddy," and
the pair, keeping a good distance behind
their assailant trailed him to a North
Sixteenth street saloon. While Russell
watched the man, Vernon found Sergeant
Pete Dillon, who arrested the fellow. At
police headquarters he gave the name
Bernard Whalen, and in court pleaded
jrullty to the offense and was sentenced
to ninety days in the county Jail.
After testifying against Whalen the
two boys left police court on their wheels,
when at Sixteenth and Harney streets a
big brown dog sprang from the sidewalk
and bit Russell on the right leg. It also
attempted to bite Vernon. A motorcycle
officer had his puttees grazed by the
teeth of the brute as It sped away. Rus
sell returned to police headquarters and
had the wound, which was a severe one,
dressed by Dr. Charles Shook.

Nobody appreciates true art these days.
A week or so sgo Inhabitants. passing
down Farnam street, were surprised,
startled, astonished and flabbertlsaated to
see suspended from the city hall "Wel
come arch" the figure of a horse, tfcveral
horses were frightened by It. sutolsts lost
control of their machines, strong men be
came faint when they looked upon It.
It was a horse. Yes, that was certain.
The four legs could be seen In prancing
attitudes. The tail streamed out behind
and the arch of tho neck showed that this
was no common breed of horse. A
prancing teed. Indeed, of which Abou-ben-Hassan
might have been proud
("might have been" Is right).
The steed was, no doubt, related to the
far-famed Pegasus, for his prancing hoofs
had no other support that the circumam
bient air. Yet he possessed no wings.
He was of a beautiful yellow color,
about like the yolk of an egg. Never has
horse been known like this horse. If
Bamum could have secured him, his

that appeared among Bee editorials Fri
day: This much may bs said for that Ak-Far-Uen
wooden horse disporting himself
from our Welcome atvh In front of the
city hall, that he Is no mors Incongruous
there than the arch Itself."
Gus Usnse read the squib and his artis

To see the child of Ms brain, the
patient product of his skill thus maligned
and laughed to publlo scorn was mors
than his Irish blood rould stand for.
He seised ths welt known telephone and
called "Tyler 1000."
Having secured the editorial ear, he
made a strong defense of his horse. It
is, or was, a work of art, said Ous. "And,
anyway. If It Isn't." he vnded, 'It's no
worse than the 'Welcome arch.' ", He
Instated that It was an Insult to the horsa
to be mentioned In ths same paragraph
with the arch. '
Right here, you see, the well known
Bee and also he do quite agree.
"No worse than the 'Welcome arch.' "
But this leaves no merit In Qua' horse.

his achievement. He Is under restraint
at present, that he may not put In dan
