The beneficiary of the Governor's kind

SLIGHT JAR CAUSES FRACTURE.
Strapped to Couch to Trevent Fur
ther Breaks Before the Pres
ent One Is Healed May
Rochester, N. Y.. March 7 With a record
of twenty-two bones broken In his body,
Hiram Bartholomew, 6 jears old. of North
Coshocton has the misfortune of being the
mest fragile piece of humanity in existence.
The boj's latest accident occurred to-day.
when, during a fit of coughing, induced by
an attack of whooping cough, his right leg
was fractured. The fragility of the Infantile
bones, which snap almost with a breath. Is
a disease known as fragllltas osslum, or
mora commonly called "pipe-stem bones."
Tho little fellow's osseous texture Is shat
tered by the slightest Jar. A fall that would
not ralBe a bump on the forehead of an or
dlnarj child would readily fracture this
bo)'s skull, or perhaps cause It to crumble
Into d.ust. A sudden movement Induced by
a pla ful ' boo" causes on arm or leg to
snap. The boy is now strapped to a couch
to prevent his breaking more bones before
the present fracture Is reunited.
Hiram was 2 years old before the first
fracture occurred. Since that time the
breaks have taken place with such fre
quency and increasing regularity that he
has spent the greater part of his timo with
some part of his anatomy bound In splints.
"The boy presents an extreme case," said
Doctor K. C. Boody of this city, who is at
tending the case. It Is not an unusual dis
ease, but few have attained the degree of
severity possessed in this Instance.
"It ts caused bj an excess of mineral and
a deficiency of animal matter In the compo
sition formjng the bones. The animal mat
ter Is absorbed and the condition Is similar
to that of the ossified man seen in muse
ums. In an extreme case, like that of this
boy. a slight misstep or a touch will pro
duce a frajjture."
The probabilities are that the boy will
not recover, as the ossification Is becoming
more pronounced, and the difficulty of Join
ing the fractures greater with each accident.
