The physicians declare positively
that the resultant irritation was all
that had made the boy vicious and
that hereafter he will be good.
These surgeons, eminent mea,
state that such cases are by no
means unusual and that proper sur
gical attention would be efficacious
in most cases.
Uuhappily, the parents of these af
