I asked the doctor w hat was to bo done.

The doctor helped me on with mj overcoat,
and just as he got the garment up to the
wish-bone and was pulling like a traction
engine, with both knees braced against the
author of these lines, his right fixit slipped
and he caught me with a dull thud on the
boll. I thought I should die for a minute
or two. I didn't care about dying any
longer than that. The doctor turned white
but after a critical examination of the
wounded bi) -window, said it didn't matter.
It felt like it was about to, though.

NEW SURCICAL TABLE.
ASprlnellrl.l riij.lclan Trlrs III. Hiod In
Getting Up J"t What He WailU.
Dr. Hussell has had a new surgical table
of his own invention, placed In his office,
which Is very unique. The table is capable
of being folded up into er) small compiss,
and when closed may serve as a revolving
center table. It is the full length of a man,
is constructed of heav y two-inch cherry,
eighteen Inches wide. One end is cut out
so as to receiv e the two legs separately.
The pieces are hinged at the knees and are
capable of being adpisted at aur angle de
sired, each independent of the other.
'Ihe leg supiKirts, when not in use,
hang down out of the way. The remaining
part of tlie table is hinged In the center,
permitting of the elevation and lowering of
the head and shoulders. This, too, will
be made adjutable at any angle desired.
The support to the table is of Iron, well
bracecl.abd pivoted with the bearing through
tlio floor aud well secured to the joist. B)
this method the whole arrangement can, if
necessary, be lifted up and taken aw a), and
when in place, does not harbor dirt, but on
thecontrar), can easily swept and kept
clean around It) being made to revolve,
either extrennt) can be brought to the most
desirable ositioii for any oiieration. Th-n
the form of the table admits of the patient
being securel) bound, making it possible
for a surgeon to handle even a violent case
almost b) himself. If the doctor concludes
to put Ins table on the market, he claims he
i an sell them at half the price of the cheaj
est now in the market.
