Kin Sarah firovt cT Tall Elver In Suffer
ing From a Kirjgrilar Disease.
Five years ago Miss Sarah Scott of
Fall River was budding into a woman
hood that promised an nsctptinr.nl ex
ample of feminine beauty. Today fcfco
is a bedridden invalid in whom every
physician in New England is taking an
interest. Sho is euficrinj! from osteo
malacia, a rare digram of tho bones.
Her parents worn both lier.lthy, and
they have another daughter who enjoys
a beantif nl face and a splendid physiqno.
Abont 18 months ago Mihs Scott com
plained of a peculiar soreness in her left
thigh. While about to step on a train
her thigh bono snanjied at the sore spot,
and sho was carried into a hospital.
The manner of the breaking was no
simple that the examining physician's
curiosity was at once aroused. After
some of the most export men had look'
ed into the details it 'was decided that
amputation was ncoessary to prolong
the cm s life. Her nerves were in a
shattered condition, br.t tho amputation
was successful. Itwasroted at the time
that the bone was of a very unusual
composition, but no such results as have
followed were expected.
After tho wound had been dressed
and while she was being turned in a
hospital bed tho doctors and nurses
were astounded by tho breaking of a
bone in her right thish almost in tho
esact spot where amputation had been
performed on tho othor leg.
The fracture was treated lmmodiato-
ly, and for eight months the girl re
mained at the institution under tho care
of physicians who studied the caso anx
iously. Then the broken limb healed,
and tho girl was taken home. Her gen
eral health did not improve, and she be-
camo a great care to her relatives. One
of the snrgcons at a Boston hospital.
who knew of her case, settled in Fall
months ago and made a
closo study of the disease as it developed,
rot many weeks ago, while the girl
was resting her foot on the floor trying
its strength without the support of
crutches, the right thigh bone again
snapped about whore it was previously
broken. That necessitated a total con
finement to her bod. A few weeks later
sho was trying to chew a small piece of
meat when her left jawlwno broke.
This (caused a noticeable swelling,
and her pretty features now look dis
torted. Two weeks ago she was tryin
to fix a pillow under her bead, using
her left ami to push it into place. She
hadn't reached her hand to tho back of
her head before the bones of the arm
just at the shoulder joint seemingly fell
