Yesterday morning Dr. Calvin Trues
dale, of this city, assisted by Dr. W. K.
Sloan and by Mrs. A. M. Stocking, of
Moline, performed a surgical operation
for Mrs. Lucina Nason, of fiat city. The
lady is upward of 75 years of age. She
has had serious trouble with her feet for
four or five months past, and the ailment
on one foot gradually resolved itself into
gangrene of tbe toes. To prevent its
spread amputation was decided to be
necessary. As the lady is subject to
tumors and skin troubles, it was thought
advisable to make the amputation above
tbe ankle loint, so that necessity of a
second amputation might be avoided.
Therefore tbe leg was cut off at a point
about three inches above the ankle. The
lady is doing as well as could be expected.
