When large areas of akin are de

severe burns or extensive Injuries, it
li sometimes months before the sur
face is again covered with epidermis.
Repair may have gone on till the sur
face Is on a level with the surrounding
parts, and all that remains is for the
skin to creep in from the edges; but
this process, especially in persons
weakened by long confinement in bed,
Is very slow, and the constant dis

It has been known for many years
tat a flap of skin might be lifted from
its place and made to adhere In an ad
joining spot, provided its connection
with the surrounding skin were not
cut off. But now we can go farther
than this. In 1860 a French physician
discovered that small bits of sound
skin might be snipped off and applied
to the surface of the sore, and that
under certain conditions they would
adhere and form new centers from
which the process of healing might go

tne Bunace 01 tne uicer must be in a
suitable condition. If it is rough, or
discharges too freely, or projects too
far above the surrounding level, there
is danger that the small bits of skin
will fall off.
The process is as follows: The surj
face of the ulcer, as well as that of the
sound skin from which the grafts are
to be taken, having been carefully
cleansed with carbolic acid, or other
solution that serves the same purpose,
the bit of skin is picked up in a small
pair of forceps or on the point of a
needle, and is snipped off - with a pair
of sharp scissors or a small knife.
Only the superficial layer of skin is
taken, and if this is properly done
there is no bleeding.
The bit of skin, which is generally
not larger than the head of a pin, li
then placed firmly upon the ulcer,
with the cut side down, and preferably
about a quarter of an inch from the
free border. A line of grafts may be
placed at equal distances completely
across the denuded surface, and thus a
bridge of skin is Boon formed, for the
grafts spread and unite, and thus con
vert the original ulcer into two smaller
ones. By a similar process these two
parts may be again divided, and the
process continued till the whole sur
face is covered.
In a few instances larger portions of
skin have been made to grow to the
ulcerated surface, but in general the
smaller bite cause repair to go on as
rapidly, and are more easily applied
and cared for. Youth s Companion.
How Two Men and a Heavy Boat Ware
Carried Along by a FLU.
The other rod lay between me and
my boatman, under his supervision. I
was reeling in my line after a short
abortive cast when suddenly Fierce
made an exclamation, and I turned to
see his line running out rapidly, so
rapidly in fact that the handle of the
reel knocked a piece out of his fore
finger. He reached me the rod, and
just after 1 had seized it, taking care
to exert no pressure, a large silvery
mass leaped out of the water straight
into the water and fell back again.

In considering any statement as to
the height a fish jumps out of
water, it is important to know whether
the narrator has included the length
of the fish in making up his figures.
That ia to say, if a fish is six feet long
and jumps from its native element so
that the tip of its tall is two feet clear
of the surface, good story-tellers will
claim that it has jumped eight feet out
of water. Others will take oath to
only two. It is sufficient to state that
the tarpon in question jumped either
two feet or eight, according to the in
dividual preferonoe of the reader. At
that time he had taken out with veloci
ty about fifty yards of line; the leap
terminated his first rush, and I had an
opportunity to rool in about a fourth
of the amount before he started off
again. Meantime my man hud hauled

A Newly Discovered Anecdote of Qaeea
The March wind was swirling and sough
ing drearily as Sir Walter Raleigh ascended
the steps to the palace and inquired of the
Grand Duke of the Vestibule if her majesty
was at borne. That individual, turning to
the Goldstick in Waiting, repeated the ques
tion to him,, and he in turn interrogated the
First Lady of the Front Staircase, who
promptly communicated Sir Walter's request
tor information to the proper authorities, the
result being that the courtier was utformed
that her majesty was in and would be pleased
to have him call again next week. This Sir
Walter, concealing his discomfiture, pro
ceeded to do, remarking to the queen when
next be met her that she had treated him in
a very wintry manner the last time he called.
, "No. my dear Sir Walter," replied her
majesty; "the treatment souorded you was
not wintry; it was summary."
"Hal" smiled the courtier. "You were
feeling coolly that morning."
"Wrong again, Sir Walter," was her ma
jesty's quick retort "I was not coolly dis
posed. Indeed 1 was much less Raw-ly dis
posed than usual"
"Were I your enemy, madame," quoth the
courtier, "I should inform your majesty that
the jest was good when first twas uttered by
the third assistant game keeper on my great-great-grandfather's
estates, some two hun
dred years ago, but as one of your majosty's
devoted slaves 1 remember what is due
your highness, and observe, 'Hal haf Thy
wit well nigh drives me to the verge of lu
nacy. Again your majesty will permit me
to observe, 'Hal haf"
"Laugh away, my dear Sir Walter." re-
plied the' queen, somewhat piqued; "but do
not laugh too hard. Men have been known
to laugh their heads off."
