Ottawa, Ills , who came to Chicago two
weeks ago and submitted to a most aston

nothing less than the removal of seventy

thighs of Mr. Biake, from the knees to the
trroin. in strips one and oue-hall tncnes

an inch wide, and grafting ttiem uion

Orafllng ar Amputation.
The skin had been burned away at their
residence in Ottawa early last fall, their
choice lying between grafting aud the
amputation of both arms. The oiK-r.lt ion
took place in the hospital operating room
on the afternoon of Dee. 23, requiring two
hours. Mr. and Mrs. ;lake were placed
under the iuSiveuce of ether and laid upon
the table side by side, i As each piece of
skin wascnt from Mr. Blake's thighs it
was drot'iicd into a disinfecting solution
