(By United Press Leased Wire.)
CHICAGO, Nov. I«.—Lying in a hospital eot today with the
body of a living puppy-dog bound tightly to her ami is -Mrs. W.
II Johnson, wife of the postmaster of Monominie, Wis., and the
woman's flesh and the dog'H flesh nre literally growing together.
This extraordinary method is being tried out by the hospital
' pnthologists in an attempt to save the life of the woman patient
and it is the first time in the history of surgery that it has ever
been attempted.
Dr. Carl Anderson performed
the operation at the Rhodes Ave
nue hospital.
Mrs. Johnson came to Chicago
for treatment for a rodent ulcer,
which covered a. space of several
inches square on her left elbow
and upper arm. Rodent ulcer !s
a very ancient disease, said to
have been one of those prevalent
when Jesus healed the sick of
Palestine. It usually attacks the
** arms or legs and while not as fre
quently fatal as cancer is not
curable by medicine.
"What can you do for me?"
asked Mrs. Jonnson, when Dr.
Anderson told her how serious
was her malady.
"Nothing," he answered, "un
-• less you will submit to having the
skin of an animal grafted on
your arm."
"Go ahead," she said.
Two healthy puppies were tak
en and kept on a diet until their
condition was ideal. Then one
of them, Nellie, the skyterrier,
was called upon to risk her life
• to save a human being. Nellie
did not choose to be a heroine,
but she played her part bravely.
Mrs. Johnson was placed upon
the operating table and given an
anaesthetic. When her wound
m had been prepared the dog also
was put to sleep. Then its abdo
men was shaved.
The operation took only a short
while and Dr. Anderson says that
unless there is infection the
wound will heal rapidly and the
dog can be cut away from the
woman in a week, when the fourth
- side of the flap will be stitched
to its place on the woman's arm.
