ST. PAUL, Minn., May 19. — Mrs.
Stella Hammond of Seattle, Wash.,
dropped dead here at the home of her
sister, Mrs. J. N. Savard, after th« lat
ter had undergone a dangerous opera
tion for cancer of the stomach. Mrs.
Hammond apparently was in good
health. The nervous strain of assist
ing at the operation is supposed to
have brought on a stroke of apoplexy.
The operation on Mrs. Savard, it is
said, was one of the most difficult In
surgical science and included a re

hours to perform the operation.

NEW YORK, May 19. — A piece of

point has been removed from the right
hand of Rosalie Layko, a nine-year
old Brooklyn schoolgirl. The pencil
had been working its way about the
child's body since January last, when
she swallowed it while at play. Ef
forts to remove it from her stomach
then proved of no avail and for sev
eral weeks she has complained of
pains in the side and shoulder. Fin
ally the object moved down through
her arm and caused the hand to swell.
The doctors were greatly astonished
upon applying the lancet and encoun

say there is no record of so large a
substance passing through the human
body in a similar manner.

"Since Oliver was first sentenced in
