Mr. Joseph Farnsworth was
among us again last week. It has
been over a year since he left here

some years lefore. . She had to be

ankel but unfortunately thev left
some decayed bone and it never
knit properly and finally broke out
again, which -railed for an amputa
tion above the knee.

were both good swimmers. No one
