Assessed values of propertfS in the

acrease over-those of last year of at
east half a billion dollaj-s judging
rom facts in such typical States as
'exas,.Georgia, Louisiana'aid Tennes
ee, which would indicate an increase
in true 'values of at .least $1,250,000,
000. Foin various quarters of the
South correspondence in this week's
issue of the Manufacturers' Re'cord
tells of recent progress in the accum
ulation of wealth, and of measures
to add still further to the store.
Buildiig perlmits at Memphis for in
stance, exceeded last month those of
any month on record and snrpassed
those of the corresponding month of
the previous year by $200,000. While
building undertaking ranging from
$50,000 downward in .investment, have
just been announced there, not to
mention plans for beginning work
within the next month upon a million
dollar Court House.
In the Norfolk, Va., section, where
the shipments of lumber aggregate
700,000,000 feet a year, so great is the
demand for labor in construction of
new buildings that every mechanic is
not only at work, but is receiving
record-breaking wages, apartment
houses% six o eight, stories high with
numerous roomis aire rented is fast
as they are completed, oldtime resid
enees and business houses are giving
buildings, and at least 1,000 new
way to tall modern stores and office
houses could b rented with ease.
Charleston, W. Va., is increasing its
hotel capacity 'at a cost of more than
$100,000, and plans have been per
fected for the establishment at. Hun

iron-pipe concern of New York State,
of a. plant to manufacture iron soil
pipe, radiators, ete, to use 200 tons of
pig iron a day and to employ ultimate
ly 500 men.
Work is being pushed upon im
provements that will shortly permit
several furnaces inl Alabama, wvihich
are being overhauled to resume oper
ations, and the shipments of iron are
equal to the production there. At
one point in the southern part of the'

SKIN PATOHES SAVi LIF .
More Than Four Hundred Peces
Grafted on a Man Who Was to
Badly Burned.' in
One of the most remarkable skin
grafting operations known to surgery
has be,en accomplished in the case of
George S. Kilby, of No. 59 Gates ave
nule, Brooklyn, w,ho has -had one en
tire side of his body remade with 414 pa
pieces of skin which was grafted on Jol
him. The pices were one-quartor of
an' inch in diameter, so that nearly
three square feet of skin ' has been
grafted on his body. in
Mr*. Kilby was severely 1mrned on to
the right side of his face anid body on tio
May 6, by t he 6xplosion of anll alcohol wil
lamp. Before the'flames gould be ex- ho'
tinguished they find burned beneath Ul)
the skin, and scars which would have sw
ade(l that side of tle body almost use- fol
less would have resulted but for the bi
work of science. rl
Not only diil the immediate mcm.: ca
hers of Mr. Kilby's family contribute re<
cuticle for the restoration of his body, me
but. his physician, Dr. Herbert C. Al- ha
len, his nurse and many of his friends, to
particularly from the Hanson Place
Baptist church, where lie was active ha
in church work, also made sacrifices. mC
Thirty pices of skiii were cAit from to
Mrs. Kilby and ten from their ten- p)il
year-old daughter. Miss Blanche
Snyder, the nurse, contiributed thirty
pieces. aid Mr. Kilby's father, who
is sixty Years old, h1ad twenty pieces
cut from his right arm. More than
twenty of his frienlds also underwent
0e)(r1ationls inl his J)elalf.
After being reiioved the small
patches were treated with antiseptics
11n( placed oin Mr. Kilby's wound(ls.
This grafting process was continued
for nearly two months and it was so
siccessfill that there will be only a at
slight sear on the face. bi
Operationls of this nature are coin
m11on1 inl hospital work, but it is sel
dom, if ever, that so hrge ani era of b
a maii 's body has been covered. In to
many eases the skmi is cut from one .
part of the body ind grafted onI
another, but this cold not be (one1 in
Mr. Kilby's case, as so much of the
body was burned tat there was to
iore skin pores open than were ab
sohlitely iecessarv for his lealth.
