As Interesting story of concern to Brook
lyn people was recalled to me the other day
Anxon la a little, picturesque village near
v tuoria, in northeastern Italy, not far from
the Austrian Tyrol. It to the home of 4
noted woman, whose fame ha spread
throughout all Europe by her skill to roller
human suffering. Reglna dal Cin was born in
the village of Vendenciano, near Cod eg llano,
veneua, April 4, loll, tier parents were
Lorenzo Uarcbeuini and Marianne 8ando
nalla, both of whom talonged to the peasantry
of Venetla. Following the vocation of her
mother, Roglna, from early childhood, dis
played a taste for setting dislocated bones.
At first practicing her art on chickens and
tnimak, Regina's first operation, strange to
my, wa upon her mother. One day, as she
was going to a neighboring village, the
wagon upset and her leg was broken. Regina,
who was now 0 years old, following ber
mother's directions, set the limb. Car mother
was carried home and confined to the bouse
for forty days, during which her daughter
became her nurse.
TES DOCTORS EXRACCO.
A year It tor Roglua went to live with ber
brother at Vittoria, where she began to see
operations in the hospital and acquired her
celebrated delicacy of touch. At the age of
18 she married Lorenzo dul Cin, a poor peas
ant, and was shortly loft a widow with one
son, who became a priest. Among ber early
operations was one upon a poor fellow in the
village of Alpago, who was confined to his
bed by fractured legs, The doctors bad or
dered amputatiou when Regina, appearing
at the time, declared she could save both legs,
and In short time the man was able to talk.
Doctors, enraged at being thus outrivaled,
'-bad her arm, ted and taken before the tribune
for practicing without a licence. Her advo
cate was the patient whom she had just
cured. Regina was pardoned, but ordered to
practice no more. Yet patients caine to her
day by day, declaring they would see no one
else. The theory of ber skill was the "reduc
tion of the femur." A poultice of marsh
mallow and bran was applied and continued
for a longer or shorter time, accordingly as
the dislocation was new or old. When the
boue bad attained a certain softness the ma
nipulation began and the dismembered part
piaoea angnt, toe rorce being used at
the proper time, and unconsciously to the pa
tient, all being don without chloroform and
without causing pain. It must be remarked,
however, that she possessed an almost super
human strength in bar fingers, equal to that
of two men.
Another wonderful cur was in the case at
Dr. Bwilim. an Invalid from hip dislocation
of twenty years' standing. Dr. Bellim was
on of tb physicianl whose prejudice,
twenty-five years before, she had sought to
overcome. From 1043 to laGS she continued
to practice ber profession, Ui which ber only
desire was to excel. From patients of ample
means sue always expected liberal compensa
tion, but tb poor she charged nothing.
Again summoned before the tribunal at Vic
toria for practicing without a license, aha
was condemned to two months' Imprison
ment. The case was carried to the hihAr
court at Venice, where, defending herself
with great skill, sh said: "Gentlemen, you
know very well how to name the bones.
1 do not; but I can set them, and you cannot."
Eh was acquitted amid great rejoicing. A
lady of Venice wboa daughter was suffering
from luxation of the femur sent for Regina,
and the young lady in a short time was able
to lay aside her crutctiea
RiCOGNLZED AT LAST.
Tb physicians of Vunlce, after an inter
view, now each presented ber with a certifi
caca Honors still awaited her. Mr. Cane
nida, a rich banker of Trieste, whose daugh
ter had suffered from Infancy with the same
disease, and who bad consul lad all the best
physicians of the great capital without find
ing any benefit, finally sent for Regina, who
operated on the daughter, and in a short tim
she was cured. Operations began to multi
ply. Wonderful cures were effected. Regina
was tendered an ovation. Surrounded on tb
streets and everywhere hahed with enthusi
asm, sb would smile and bid f htn "thaiik

municipality Invited her to operate in the
city hospital before a u urn ber of physicians,
and ebe secured their warm approval, and
they rewarded ber with a certificate.
The mayor now gave her a grand dinner,
at which were present the elite of the city
and many pbysiciana They applauded her
verywbere, a if sh war Garibaldi or some
other liberator of the country.
The day of ner departure a deputation of
patients, beaded by ilr. Valeria, who had
been cured of luxation of twenty years'
standing, presented ber with a magniiicent
album, containing over 4, (XX) signatures, in
eluding thou of eighty physicians, beauti
fully dedicated in lines of gold. The munici
pality of Trieste presented her with 1U0 Ka
poieona In gold, one-naif of which sh dis
tributed to the poor. Tb profession offered
her SOU fiuruu a year and a villa to remain. '
It was a fete day at Vittoria when th
Italian government sent Regina a diploma
allowing her to practice. Music sounded on
th streets, national airs were sung. A
young man whom she had cured of luxation
of the femur wrote two poems, which were
rendered at the theatre during the afternoon
Mr. Isaac R. Robinson, of Montagu ter
race, Brooklyn, who was rendered lame from
a sickness during infancy, while traveling
abroad, sought ber at her horn and was bene
fited to the extent of being able to walk with
out th use of a high shoe. The cases cited
are all cures, yet in some "t n"- relaxa
