HARRISBURG, PA., SATURDAY EVENING, JUNE 6, 1914. STRIPS SI FROM MOTHER TIME AFTER TIME TO SAVE CHILD Brave Fight of Mrs. Anna Nurich Will Soon Be Over Say Doctors GIRL WAS TERRIBLY BURNED Medical Experts Found Grafting Only Measure That Could Re store Her to Health Four times during the past year Mrs. Anna Nurick, 1531 Fulton street, has suffered the pain of having skin stripped from her body that her burned child might live. But still her patient suffering is not enough, and soon, for the fifth time, Mrs. Nurick will have to undergo another opera tion, when several inches of her skin will again be taken and grafted upon the wounds of the child. Martha Nurick, who is 6 years old, was played with a lighted candle about a year ago at her home when the ac cident occurred. The child was taken to the Harrisburg Hospital, where she lay for many months slowly strug ling back to life. Doctors at the hos pital believed that the child's recov ery would be hastened if she could be treated by the noted skin specialists at Jefferson, and so she was sent to the Philadelphia institution. The skin that was stripped from the mother's back and arms was ap plied to parts of Martha's body where ttie llames had been most cruel. The child's condition was much im proved, but yesterday the doctors at Jefferson hospital decided that an- I other portion of new skin must be at tached to the child's body in order to assure its recovery. While Mrs. Nurick has undergone these painful operations, slie savs her j own physical sufferings are lost in the joyful knowledge that the burned child is going to recover.
