He was up before davlight in New York

It was an army mule of course that
delayed the departure, of the Seventh
Regiment, and at their camp near New
Haven to-night tho members of that or
ganization were chuckling over tho inci
dent and cursing tho mule. At Pier
22, hast River, the mule, which cost SKiO,
decided upon suicide and calmly hopped
overboard. The animal became wedged
in between the naddlo wheel and the
hull uf thi boat that was to toko it to tho
Horrors or war. George M White of 101
llleecker street was the hero who went
in and hoisted out the animal after Ho

was reported from Bethel, where Charles

His skull was fractured He was taken'
to tho hospital in Uinbury, where it la

There was little complaint from the
Twolfth and Sixty-ninth regiments land
ing at New Haven to-day over the fact
that they made the trip up tho Sound
in freighters while tho Seventh and
Sovonty-first came up on the more luxur
ious Richard Peck. The first two regi

had to toko a slower way of getting to

Bridgeport, on the other hand, roused
itself and turned out to watch the khaki
uniforms and blue hat bands of the Armv
of Defence go by. It didn t take the I
tnwnsrnii; long to aisnnguisn the militia i
from the regulars. The former almost
invariably limped. There are probably
more new shoes shuffling across Bridge

All to-day the roads to Stratford and
the umpires' camp were thick with tho
dust of antos from Bridgeport and to

To-morrow, however, will bo a big day

CURE DEFORMED FEET
Tissue Introduced From Body
of Child Dead Soon After
Dr. Fred H, Albee, a surgeon at the
Post Graduate Hospital, confirmed laid
night the report that ho had success
fully performed on a two-year-old boy
the operation of cutting ligaments In
the fecC and transplanting bones from
other children for tho cure of club feet
This surgical operation Is one of the
most startling that has been performed
In recent years.
Five weeks ago a boy born with de
formed feet waa brought to the Post
Graduate Hospital from Waterbury,
Conn. 'The usual method of curing the
defect known as club feet and which Is
caused by nn Insufficient number of
bones Is to cut the ligaments nnd by the
use of braces straighten tho deformed
members. The process Is one of long
duration and Is not always successful.
Dr. Albcc, who Is tho head of the
department of orthpctdlc surgery at
Cornell and at the University of Ver
mont, decided to try a new method. He
determined that he must have bones
from other children and that they must
be In healthy condition. Uellevue Hos
pital was appealed to, and In the course
of a week waa able to supply the bodies
of two Infants that had died of strangu
lation at birth. From one was taken a
thigh bone and from another an arm
bone. They were carefully preserved
and the child with the maimed feet was
prepared for the operation.
Then Dr. Albee made Incisions in the
feet and legs of the crippled child and
transplanted the bones of the healthy
children. The feet of the patient were
set In plaster casts and the natural
process of growth caused the new bones
to knit with those of the child. Dr.
Albee said last night that the opera
tion been successful and It appears
thitt the child will soon be able to walk
It Is said that bone transplantation
has been often made, but never for this
particular deformity. Dr. Albee him
self has experimented a great deal In
transplanting n bone from one part of
tho body to another for the correction
of certata deformities or weaknesses.
His experience along these lines fitted
him peculiarly for the delicate opera
tion which he performed at the Post
The problem was as much concerned
with the knitting of the bones as with
trnnsplnllng them. Great precautions
were taken to prevent the little patient
from making the slightest movement
that might disturb the casts that held
the bones In place. These casts were
taken off n week ago and the child In
now pronounced to be absolutely cured.
Much Interest Is taken In the problem of
his learning to walk. His crippled feet
made that Impossible before,
The operation wan watched by many
prominent surgeons nnd they are said
to have been greatly Impressed with the
feat and with Its meaning to the surgl
Jfofld. . . .

Boston, Aug. 10. After an absence of

With him were Mrs. Eliot, his grand

Pierce of Milton, who mado the tour
with him. It was during tho Illness of
Dr. Eliot at Ceylon, where ho underwent
an operation for appendicitis, that
young Pierce fell In love with Miss Ruth
Eliot, proposed and was accepted.
The engagement was announced In
May following a wire Miss Eliot sent
her mother, who was touring in Europe.
Though a date has not been set as yet
the marriage will take place in the fall
and at the pleasure of Mrs. Eliot, who Is
at her home In IJrookllne.
Dr. Eliot showed no traces of the Ill
ness which for a time caused his
frie.ids In the United States no end of
woniment. He was perhaps a trifle
sllmr.ier than when he went away, but
his stp was an springy and clastic and
his skin browned from exposure to the
sun In the tropical countries he visited.
The party left the train at the Back
Bay station and were Immediately
driven to the homo of Dr. Eliot's sister

days before going to his summer home
at Mount Desert, Me. To-night he met
a party of newspaper men at the home
of his sinter, Mrs. Guild, and for an

ingly of the countries he had visited
and of his observations.
"The great problem of the world at
