that inUV.n;ott recently a .ovmr. grato-
fal monument of surgical ingenuity and
vni Kortha Kisrlcr i now about 20
years old. and iiieen years ago sho
was treated by aa unskilled surgeon iu
Grirmanv for a supposed cancerous
prowtli on her left check. The ailment
prove J to be of another character, but
the operation destroyed all symmetry
of the. child's face, leaving a largo holo
in the cheek, and the mouth and noso
frightfully distorted. Eighteen montha
ai;o the girl called oa Dr. Shrady to
discover if any thing could bo done to
remedy her deformity.
She was only a poor working girl, but
begged to go to the hospital aud pay
fortreatment by work. Tho doctor
held out but little encouragement, but
at last consented to attempt tho task of
building up virtually a new counte
nance. Soon after tho first operation
was performed, and in the course of a
vear it was followed by sixteen others.
Most of the face was made over by
transplantation of Uosh from adjacent
The most important step in tho treat
ment was tho tilling up of tho hole in
the face. For this purposo a large skiu
flap was wanted, it was obtained in
the following manner: A rectangular
Bection of skin was partially separated
from the girl's left arm abovo tlio el
bow. An incision was made in tho sido
of tho forefinger of the right hand,
extending from the first joint around to
tho thumb. Tho hand was then
brought over to tho left arm and the
detached edge of tho skin 11 up was sew
ed into the incision in tho linger with
fino silver wire. The hand and arm
were kept immovable by plastic band
ages. In abojt a week tho skin Hap
became united to tho hand, but tho llap
was principally nourished from tho
arm. To change tho current of nutri
tion, the flap was gradually cut from
the arm, bnil when it had been nearly
severed tho linger and not the arm kept
the skin Cap alive. When this beeanio
apparent tho entire skin flap was am
putated from the arm. Tho hand,
with the ingrown skin llap was then
brought up to the face, tho scarred
skin on tho left cheek was then raised
and tho flap was inserted underneath.
Tho hand was kept in position by plas
tic bandages aud a plastic cap. la
threo weeks tho llap Locarno attached
to tho face; the current of nourishment
was changed by gradual amputation
from the finger, and finally, when en
tirely separated from tho hand, the
skin flap taken from tho arm becamo
the foundation of a new cheek.
With a natural anxiety tho doctor
watched the growth of the llesh, and at
last had the satisfaction of demonstra
ting indubitably the feasibility of trans
plantation of llesh from one part of tho
body to another by using the hand as a
medium. New di'lliculties then arose.
The surface of tho face was rehabili
tated, but the girl's mouth wa3 drawn
out of shape to such an extent that tho
corner was almost directly under her
To restore the mouth Dr. Shrady de
cided to enlarge it on one side and sow
it up on the other, and after this was
dona the lips were cut into tho truo
and proper shape and all traces of dis
tortion had disappeared. With the
success of this last operation, which
made twenty in all, tho labor was end
ed, and nothing remained but await
the healing of the incisions. Theso at
last became satisfactory uud tho girl's
faco is shapely once more, bu of
course, fclightly disfigured by scars.
Most of these, however, are from clean

from uionrst moment of her Ion"
martyrdom tho girl has notfaltercl t.Z
an instant, uut has been even impatient
for the next step. Sometimes tho doc
tor would try to induce her to forego
for a timo the operation, but she per
eistd in her desire. A singular feature
of the case is that in gpho of tho Buf
fering she must have endured nho has
grown very fat. Sho has been en
Btantly tho recipient ot flowers, wines,
and delicacies of various kinds, from
people who, though strangers to her
have berjbme interested in her singular

The gratitudo she evinces toward tho
doctor is immeasurable. Sho is now in
the most buoyant spirits and is looking
forward with delight to the prospect of

Women In tho New Orleans Mint.
Some five or six years ago, when it
was known that women were to bo em
ployed in tho mint, those In authority
were besioired bv hundreds of anolica-
I tiotis from till conditions of women. As
a genoral thing, tho successful ones
were well chosen, both as to fitness for
the work ami their diro need for it.
Indeed, it may be set down as a rule
that w hen tho average woman asks for
work it is becauso sho must havo bread
nud fuel aud a home. Tho ladies cm
ployed in tho mint have, some of them,
kept their positions steadily through all
tho live years; tho changes havo gen
erally been the result of somo worker
dropping off iuto matrimony and leav
ing n vacancy only too easily filled
from tho standing army of applicants.
Iu New Orleans there nro in tho adjusting-room
of tho mint thirty ladies
at work, of whom four aro colored
Tho salary is $ 1.75 a day. They go to
work at 8 and stop nt 4 in tho after
noon. Tho work requires tho strictest
attention, and is of such a nature that
it can never become purely mechani
cal. There aro three long, high tables
ranged down tho room; tiieso nro
marble-topped and protected at tlio
edges with bands of leather. Tlio
workers sit in high chairs with good,
comfortable backs to them. The ma
terials for work aro a pair of scales for
tho weighing of money, sets of tin
bowls to put it in, and a file. Tho
round pieces of unstamped coins aro
brought to the ladies iu wooden boxes.
Each piece has to bo weighed threo
times. A mistake in tho weight of ono
piece of even almost infinitesimal pro
portion may cause tho worker to lose
her position. It seldom, if ever, hap
pens. However, mat one is uisehargeu
for incompetency, or worse, careTes
ness. An export adjuster handles in a
day from 3,000 to 3,500 silver dollar
coins. The condemned coins aro sent
back to bo melted over; some being
omy a trillo out of standard weight she
can file down. For this she is provid
ed with a leather apron to catch the
precious silver dust, tho loss in which
can be, and must be, measured by the
grain. The water iu which tho ladies
wash their hands when they aro through
filing is carefully preserved and filter
ed for the silver dust. During warm
weather it is stilling work in the ad
justing department, since none of the
windows can be allowed open, this sil
ver pollen being too precious to bo car
ried off by a thieving wind. During
nine mouths of last year the ladies
were required to do extra work, which
kept them in their seats until six
o'clock. lor tho extra work they
were paid by tho hour, and received
the small sum of 21 cents. Tho ladies
holding positions havo accomplished
their tasks with unvaried success, and
are not often disturbed by rumors re
garding their dismissal. Tho work re
quired of them is easily learned, but is
none the less sadly laborious. Tho
eye tires of its fixed gaze at tho deli
cate beam of tho scales, but tho eye
must be as accurate as the scale. There
s no time for rest, no excuse for mis
take, and after tho fashion of women
undertaking a work at which they aro
competent, they bend to the task with
patienco that never falters, and with
a strength that never gives out until
tho work is finished.
ehong of the Wood Thrush.
The song of this bird defies descrip
tion, though it has inspired both ex
travagant and poetical attempts from
the most prosaic of writers. When
heard from a distance it sounds very
deliberate: a succession of detached
passages, with frequent pauses, ending
in a trill, sometimes easily distinguish
ed as such, but often so rapidly deliv
ered as to resemble tho syllable
"cho-e-o" with a peculiar and indes
cribable thrill in it. If you are near,
however, you find the pauses filled with
low notes, having, apparently, no con
nection with tho song. Ono cannot
help but fancy them irropressiblo
words of endearment, inotl'ably sweet
and tender, and wonderfully enhancing
the charm of the performance.
Ho is not chary of his gift. Ho sins
at all hours of tho day, excepting in tRe
heat of noon; but ho seems most keenly
to enjoy tho fading light of afternoon
and the evening until long after dark.
Not a little of the mystery and melan
choly that poetical minds find in his
music is duo to tho thoughtful twilight
hours in which it is heard. It is in itself
far from sadness. Indeed, there can
bo no more perfect picture of deep joy
than this beautiful bird standing tran
quilly on his branch, while giving slow
utterance to notes that thrill your soul.
Tho weather is a matter of no mo
ment to tho wood thruh; he has a soul
abovo externals. Other birds may be
full of song, or moping on their perches;
uo it wet or ilry, sunshine or rain, ho
sings, and sings, and sings.
"llowsoo'er the world iron ill,
'1 bu thruebes mill inn- in it."

ceniling scale; then a deliberate rest,
followed by threo other and different
notes, and ending in a rapturous trill.
After a decorous pause, another takes
up the strain. There is no haste, no
interruption, never a clamor of song.
Each ono enjoys his full length of time,
and though there may bo a dozen sing
ers within hearing there is no confu
sion. Each rich solo is a complete
whole, a perfect pearl. To sit on a
balcony of tho house through tho long
tranquil hours of tho approaching night,
listening to the grand and lofty sym
phony, is anevcr-to-bo-forgotleu expe
rience; lifting tho soul abovo tho earth,
into regions of poetry and dreams.

Some Xew and Somo Old, Yet Inter
est Inn Withal.
Tho old authors, poets aud orators,
even tho diviuo bard Nhakspeare, poo
pled tho earth, sea and air with all
sorts of monsters and bugaboos. There
were then many worlds for science to
conquer, and when the Marco Polos,
Captain Magollans and Lord Monbod
dos, and people who had been far coun
tries for to see, camo back with yarns
of incredibly fierce nnd ferocious mon
sters, why, tho stay-at-homes had noth
ing to do but believe. Thero are no
moro Abyssinians for ingenious Dr.
Johnson to improviso happy valleys
out of, and to peoplo with Uassclascs
and other happy mortals. India and
tho l'erus aro explored, tho Amazon is
no longer a mystery, wo know where
the Nile rises, and nearly all tho earth
has yielded up its mysteries to scienco
nnd man, excepting of course Symmes'
Holo and tho impenetrable North Pole.
Tho ignorance of our early writers up
on subjects of natural history seems at
this day astonishing, yet cannot fail to
bo amusing! The sea especially was
peopled with queer monsters. There
was tho kraken, whom l'ontoppoden,
iu his Natural History of Norway, de
scribes at length. It was not a ser
pent; iu fact, had not an elongated
body, but was round, liko an island.
The Norwegian fishermen had frequent
ly seen it, ami many were tho tales
they told of its presence in warm seas.
They kuew of its presence by the
shadow of the water from ono hundred
fathoms to twenty. His back was a
mile aud a half long and his arms as
big as the masts of ships.
Tho dragon was another monster
that our forefathers placed implicit
faith in tho existence of. Some early
poet gives this description of him:
lie is as black as any coal,
Kuirirdl us n routli foul;
liis neok is (.Teat as any Pommese (Sumpter
Ho runneth swift ns any Uestreso.
I'rtW ? he hath as 11 lion;
M i lint he touclieth lie plnyeth dead down.
Great wint'S lie liutU to tlitrlit:
'ilicru b no man to bear In in mlicht.
.Sir Iievis of Hampton, St. Michael,
t. George and other knights aud saints
nil killed dragon. Iu the age of
Queen Elizabeth the monster was fifty
feet long from shoulder to tail, with
glittering scales bright as silver, but
tougher than brass, except just under
the wing, where, according to Percy
lleliqties, St. Georgo sent his good
sword Ascalon clear up to the hilt.
Livy speaks of ono that stopped the
progress of the wholo Roman arm',
and Diodorus tells of ono captured in
Africa that was sixty feet long.
The hydra was another terrible ser
pent that Hercules killed, which had
seven, or nine or fifty heads, ac
cording to the pleasure of the poet;
aud when one was cut off another
sprouted, like tho star-fish's legs,
though lludibras disputes this point.
Tliis truth is maintained by philoFophorsstilL
'Hint the hair grows HKuui, but the beau
never w ill.
The hydra is supposed to havo been
a brother of the chimera.
There are two animals mentioned bp
Shakspeare. The first is often repre
sented in heraldic designs. It is a Hy
ing serpent, the forepart as a dragon
with wings, and the latter part as a
snake, but differing from a dragon in
only having two legs. The coekatrico,
or basilisk, was a sort of missing link
between birds and reptiles. The
Scotch claimed he came from an egg,
laid by a cock, after ho was 7 years
old. Pliny describes it under the name
of basilisk, and claims that its very
odor is death to man and animals.
Serpents lly from it, and the mortal
whom it looked upon died.
First came the great roc, whom one
reads of in the adventures of "Sinbad
the Sailor." Marco Polo heard of him
in Madagascar, and declares that it
was like the eagle, measuring sixteen
paces from w'.ng to wing. Hut tho
Persian authorities give the wildest ac
count. They represent him as carry
ing an elephant m his beak and one iu
each of his claws. The Christian fath
ers believed in the existence of the
phoenix as typical of the resurrection,
nnd the Roman Senator M'mlius told
the Romans he had lived 5n!) years,
and built a nest of cinnamon and in
cense, then died. Out of his bones
came a worm which performed funeral
rites for its parent by placing the nest
on an altar of the City of the Sun in
There are hosts of other mythical
animals, the centaurs, gr'.llius, satyrs,
