Court Holds That The
The Courts have decided that arti
ficial limbs should be accepted as part
(recompense for the loss of real docs.
The matter came up in tho Appellate
Court in Chicago in the suit of Wil- .
Ham Hamilton. Ile suffered the loss '
of a leg on the Pittsburg, Cincinnati,
Chicago and St. Louis Kailroad and
secured a verdict for $3,000. Though
he possessed an artificial leg, he
thought the judgment was not a le-,
quatc and he appealed his case.
During the hearing Hamilton objoc
ted seriously to the testimony of two
men who had artificial 1 *^s. < )no man
who had two wooden le/a testified that I
he could get around al out as lively as I
a person with real 1 -gs and could
dance and ride a bicycle.
In voicing the opinion of the Court
.Judge Freeman said:
"Art and invention have done much
to mitigato the inconveniences occa
sioned by the loss of limbs aud to re
storo the power of locomotion and the
earning capacity which otherwise
might bo greatly lessened or lost and
evidenoo tending to show facts of that
nature is competent for the considera
tion of the jury."
With attention called to tho won
derful inventions of t'.eoartificial limb
makers by so eminent authority it be
hooves the modern man to take a look
around and see what ho could do to
mitigate his hardships were he to be
caught in a wreck and be deprived of
one or more of his limbs.
A peep into the manufacturing
rooms of an artificial limb establish
ment makes it apparent at once that
all is not flesh that wriggles, for, with
the aid of wood, of leather, of enamel,
steel, silver, springs, pulleys, ropes
and wheels modern manufacturers sire

would die, but by oareful nursing a
part of the man was saved?that is,
his trunk and his head, both in a
damaged condition. It bo happened
he had some money and he was able to
piece himself out.
After he was sufficiently recovered
from his injuries he was brought to
Chicago and taken to an artificial limb
maker, who was told to go to work on
the foundation and see what ho could
build. In the first place he put on
two artificial legs, and then the man

ry Make up for Loss of
man with two arms, and this was done
after much work, and the battered
trunk, dressed in the latest fashion,
began to look quite like a human being
once more. Tho man was still minus
both his ears and his nose and ono
eyo, while his hair had all fallen out.
The artificial limb maker said he could
fix tho cars and nose all right, and he
wot to work and made a pair of ears
for his man, fitted them on and then
took up tho task of a uose. Thi> was
the most difficult of all, but finally a
very neat celluoid proboscis was made
which was held in place with specta
cles. The man next got a wig and a
glass eye and went out a new man in
the real sense of the word.
Wonders arc certainly performed in
the way of making artificial limbs.
Tiruo was when the peg log was the only
thing known and the man who lost one
of his lower limbs had to go stump
ing through lifo with a wooden peg.
Now he takes $100 and goes and gets
him a new leg and ono that is about
as serviceable as a flesh and blood ono,
not subject to corns, rheumatism and
tho other ailments to which flesh is
It is only about a century ago lust
the first artificial was made and it
was considered ono of tho wonders of
the world. It was called tho Anglcsea
leg, from tho fact that it was made
for tho marquis of that name. This
Grs?, limb was wouderfully and fear
fully made, as heavy as load and as
clumsy us an iron leg. Since that
time great improvements arc made,
until to day a man with an artificial
leg can walk, run, jump, hop, skip
and do nearly everything that the man
with flesh and blood legs is able to ac
There arc no cork legs. Sonic aver
there never were.
"I have heard," said an artificial
limb maker, as ho laid down a couple
of lingers he was working upou, "that
a man from Cork once had a wooden
leg and for that reasou it was called a
cork leg. I don't know how clso tho
legs got that name, for cork is uot
used and never was used to any great
extent in tho manufacture of limbs."
The foundation of all limbs is wood,
and that a peculiar English willow,
light and durable. The stumps of
arms or legs are fitted into the wood
and then the limbs aro carved out.
After the wood has taken on tho re
quired shape rawhido is put on to
strengthen the wood and then over
this is put a coat of enamel.
Joints are made at the knees, the
ankles and at tho toss in the artificial
limbs and at tho elbows, wrists and
fingers in the arms. With pulleys and
other contrivances the hands and
fingers open and shut and the feet
bend at the ankles and tho toe joints.
A well made leg weighs from three
and a half to five pounds; an arm from
one to ono and half. The first artifi
cial legs woighed about fifteen pounds
and tho arms from five to six.
Modern manufacturers attempt to
eliminate complications thus making
it easy for the owner of a limb to
manage it and also to keep it clean
and in repair. Simplicity and natural
ness is the motto of the best workmen
and they model their works of art on
tho natural limbs, preserving the con
tour the real flesh and blood in the
insensible imitations. *
An artificial limb lasts about eight
years if it is properly oared for and
looked after. Tho joints mu?t bo
oiled, tho different parts cleaned and
everything kept in good order. Some
peeplo do not caro to keep a limb that
long, as new and improved ones aro
being mnde all tho timo and they want
to koep up with the times. Some
peuplo havo several extra limbs storod
away in their closets as they would
have extra suits of wearing apparel.
Men, women and childron flook to
these establishments to escape tho
effects of aoeidont8 wheroby they havo
lost one or more limbs. Soldiers are
frequont patrons and railroad men are
also very often looking for limbs to
replace those out off by tho oars.
After a big railroad wreck tho artifi
cial limb maker usually has a busy
season. In ono of the largest estab
lishments of this kind in Chicago
thoy have a regular fitting roosa, just
like a tailor shop or dressmaking par
lors, where peonlo go in and try on
logs, arms, hands, feot, ears or nosos.
This firm gives a guarantee with
each limb which readsjas follows:
To whom it may concern: This is to
certify that tho artificial leg made for
John Doe is guarantee- against any

The man with artificial legs can, get
around as natural as life. This has
been proven time and time again, and
Harry Collcutt, who works for Sharp
& Smith in Wabash avenue, is a liv
ing example. Both of his legs were
amputated below the kneo and he had
two legs made. He walks about with
scarcely a perceptible limp and is able
to go skating in the winter timo with
the best of them. lie runs races,
boxes, jumps and rides a bicycle and
is as active as any young man of his
For a long time he rode to and from
his work ou a wheel. Ho is able to
balance himself on one leg, to jump up
and down, to hop and to perform a
number of tricks. In speaking of his
artificial legs, of which he is as proud
as a King, he said:
"I am never troubled with corns or
rheumatism and never get cold feet in
a poker game."
Thero are a number of athletes in
the country who have one or more
artificial limbs, and several meets
have been arranged L?re men with
one or two artificial legs have compet
ed for the championship in jumping,
racing, riding the bicycle and in other
sports. It is surprising what speed
some of the handicappod participants
There are various contrivances for
lengthening short limbs, for correct
ing curvature of the spino and for
straightening club feet.
Thero is ono woman in Chicago with
an artificial limb who says tbo artifi
cial one is better than its mate, which
is fleBh and blood. She says she
would not know what to do if it were
not for the one she bought for $100, as
the other is weak and painful and
more bother to her than the wooden
The best artificial limbs cost $100
each, but inferior grades may bo had
for less. A leg costs from $75 to
$100, an arm costs about the same, a
hand may be obtained for from $25 to
$45 and a foot costs $35 to $50.
Ingenious persons arc continually
figuring on new appliances to aid the
unfortunates. Besides the well-nigh
perfect artificial limbs thero are many
contrivances to aid the maimed.
Some artificial arms contain gloved
hands to bo worn only on the street.
These may be removed and a hook
substituted while the owner is at
work. Knives and forks are also made
to attash to the stumps to be used in
eating. And as oleanlinoss is next to
godlinesB this matter has reoeived
I attention also and a brush has been
invented which is applied to the Btump
\ and can be used to w?sh the flesh and
! blood hand.
I Not until late years has any attempt
been made at making artificial fingers,
but now where the person haB stumps
of fingers left artificial digits are made
and fastened on and the result is satis
factory. Women often have thorn
made and they are attaohed to the
stumps with thin thimbles of German
silver, light, durable and clean. The
glove is, of oourae, always worn with
these artificial fingers.
Some railroads make it a praotico to
furnish artificial limbs to employees
who have been unfortunate while on
du*y in the servioo of the company.?
Cure for Smallpox.
In 18G4 Col. CR. Hanloiter, of At
lanta, furnished for publication the
following remedy for smallpox. This
'remody for smallpox' was communi
cated to Liverpool, England, Mercury
by Hon. Edward Miner, who says:
"I am willing to risk my reputation
as a public man if the worst ease of
smallpox oannot bo effectually cured
in threo days simply by ??roam of tar
tar. This is the never failing remody :
Ono ounoe of eroam of tartar dissol
ved in a pint of boiling water, to be
drank when cold, at short intervals.
It is known to have curod in a hundred
thousand cases withomt failure. I
have myself restorod hundreds by this
means. It never leaves marks, never
causes blindness, and always prevents
tedions lingering. If the people would
only try it and report cures to you. you
would be required to use many col
umns if yon gave them publicity."
? Although somo people aro con
tinually changing their minds, they
seem unable to ^et a decent one.
? Jay Gould had no use for a man
who drank and this aversion has been
inherited by all his children, especial
ly Anna, Countess do Castellan*. A
rather bibulously inclined young man
about town recently said to the Count
ess: "Would ycu call aman a drunk
ard who only gets drunk now and
then?" "Would yon call a man a
thief who only picks pockets now
and then?" was tho quick reply.

stopped at Ethel four iniuutes on the
night of the fire, but also that the fire
was well under way before the train
pulled out and the road's attorneys
argued that it was ridiculous to main

most sickening and disgusting of all complaints. Itxcauses a feeling of p^.
Bonal defilement and mortification that keeps one nervous and anxious while
in the company of others.

come infected with the catarrhal
poison. This disease is rarely, if ever,
ev? nin itsearlieat stages, a purely local
disease or simple inflammation of the
nose and throat, and this is whysprays,
washes, powders and the various in
haling mixtures fail to cure. Heredity
is sometimes back of it?parents have
it and so do their children.
In the treatment of Catarrh, anti
septic and soothing washes are good for cleansing purposes or clearing the
head and throat, but this is the extent of their usefulness. To cure Catarrh
permanently, the blood must be purified and the system relieved of its load
of foul secretions, and the remedy to accomplish this is S. S. S. which has
no equal as a blood purifier. It restores
the blood to a natural, heatthy state and
the catarrhal poison and <effete matter
are carried out of the system through the
proper channels. 8.3. S. restores to the
blood all its good qualities, and when!
rich, pure blood reaches the inflamed
membrane and is carried through the circulation to all the Catarrh infected
portions of the body, they soon heal, the mucous discharges cease and th?
patient is relieved of the most offensive and humiliating' of all complaints.
S. S. S. is a vegetable remedy and contains nothing that could injure tie
most delicate constitution. It cures Catarrh in its most aggravated forms,
and cases apparently incurable and hopeless. Write us if you have Catarrh'
and our physicians will advise you without charge.
