Hit FiTsriis Me.
New Yoke, April 6L A man. who the
doctors aay, possessed greater physical
courage than any one who eTer came un
der their observation, was among the vic
tims of tbe grip who die! last week. II is
name was John Robollo, and bis cripple-t
figure has been a familiar sight for tbe
pa-t year or so on tbe west side of town.
Fonr years ago Robollo was a man in
rugged health, almost a giant in strength.
He was employed as a block cutter in a
wall paper 'actory. More than three
yers ago a bit of brass filing became
lodged in some manner in the big toe of
bis right foot. Inflammation set in, bnt
Robollo would hare nothing to do with
The PuUon la HU Blood.
Blood poisoning In a mild form super
vene.!, and Robollo made up bis mind
that th toe would bare to come off Ha
performed tbe operation without fiiach
iug, and ligatured and bandaged it so as
to control the hemorrhage A fe weeks
latr inflammation from his wounl
spread, and gangrene set in. Then he ap
piled to the mrorn cf Rxerelt hos
pital for treatment. They found it neces
Birr to take ff tlie entire foot immedi
ately. Eren that did not avail, and a few
weeks later another amputation was made
above tbe knee. He was discharged ap
parently cured, lioth of these operations
were performed without the administra
tion of ansettbetica, - as Robolo was a vic
tim of heart disease, but be bore them
Another Operation 'eeessary.
But the poion in Robollo'a system had
apparently not been exterminated, for
tl r-e months a'ter his discharge from tbe
Lojiital gangrenous symptoms ap
peared in tbe left foot and be was again
compelled to go to the operating table.
Tiiis time the surgeons took off the le.t
lei: nt about the sanx point where tbe
other bad b-"en amputated. l$eforehe ha i
rworered from that operation the fatal
blool poisoning reappeared in the stump
of the riijht leg. TbeD tbe surgeons were
aluut ready to give him up. It was
t nerefore decided uot to operate. Wbeu
t-a iti.'ii'Mi was exi'lnineil to H-1 -11 be
ln-isted tbat tl.e operation shouli take
place without an aLif-tiietic He didn't
cire (ore the pain, he said, an 1 the sur
geons might go ahead as fast as they
AttnnliUina Plaek and Nerre.
He was so determined in the matter
that the doctors decide! to try it. They
took off the right leg at tbe hip joint, and
Ro'oollo not only bore it without fainting
or shrinking, but be grimly watched the
aursreons at work and even attempted to
assist them i tome details. Tbe doctors
said it was the most remarkable exhibi
tion of endurance they bad ever witnessed.
Eren this wa.s not the end ot tbe poor fel
low's sufferings. No sooner had he par
tially recovee! from the last awful ex
perience in tLe surgeon's b.nds than the
aame condition of things presented itself
in the left leg. That alo was taken off
at the hip joit in the same manner.
Lived Thrnnth It to Die of La Grippe.
IJobollo lired through it. His wonder
ful plui k nevtr deserted him for au in
stant. He got well, and nearly two years
ago he was discharged cured. He retained
bis health until attacked by tbe grip about
two weeks ago, and the disease finally
conquered him. He had a comfortable
little property of his own, aud be earned
a partial living by selling trinkets. He
never tired of ciacking his favorite joke
when asked how be was doing in business
or otherwise- His reply always wa: "Oh,
I can't kick."
