It was about a year ago that Minnie
Lawton, the ten year old daughter of
Robert Lawton, the foreman of Mon
roe & Co.'s foundry, .went tripping
along gayly one Saturday morning
near the noon hour on her way to
the shop with her father's dinner all
neatly put up in a willow basket;
Her heart wad i
LIGHT' AND MERRY. t L"
She. was a bright little thing, ; and
nothing pleased her eo well as" when
Saturday ': came.: and i there was no
Bchool. - so that she could carry the
elements of strength to herfather:
But in a moment more that gay and
bappy-tieart was fluttering ' perhaps
in paroxysms of death,and her pretty
young L tace was contorted by the
moBt horrible pangs of agony. ..'i -, -
Wheushe got to . the foundry th
doors were wide open, ; and she hur
ried in to go to the office, : where her
father usually met her . There were
hundreds of busy men around, and
while some were working in the sand
fashioning the moulds, others were
swiftly moving about with the heavy
ladles and pots of liquid fire l As she
was going past the cupola it was
tapped, and a million stars, like new
bom stars, flashed for a second and
were gone. Little Minnie was fasci
natod by the beautiful sight, and for
got her errand. She stood ; close by
the cupola, and her bright eyes
sparkled with delight." Her hands
twitched as if she would like to catch
the' jumping spots of ligbt, and when
a large pot had been filled with the
heavy molten iron, she still stood, by
lo see the men with brawny arms
pick it up and carry it away. With
a slow powerful strain they lifted the
pole by tbe long handle, . two men at
each end, and moved, away with it
slowly. One of the menodded to'
Minnie as they moved near to her,
and epoke a pleasant word, u As bis
head was turned for a moment he
did not see where he was going, and
fell over a large, iron flask that lay
in the path. ; He balf fell, tried to
catch his balance, and in his struggle
-the handle was twisted suddenly out
of his hand and the pot' of iron was
upset. The white hot metal spattered,
" LIKE A FLASH
over the moist sand. And Minnie?
The poor little. thing was caught in
the"" "ruahinjp." iron, and . piercing
screams r?nt the air. Several work men
rushed to Minnie, and many: a
tear fell down the grimy;, cheek as
they tenderly picked her. up and car
ried her to the office. -: ' l
She was unconscious, but her body
writhed : with torture. When the
iron struck her she fell, and jumping
at the : same , time, her body was
thrown so that the upper part was
uninjured, save by, burns from the
small pieces of flviog metal. Her
feet aDd theef t leg were in a horrible
condition, " and the flesh could be
pet-Jed off tbe bone with but little
trouble . The right leg was compar
ativejy unhurp, but when they took
her to the Mount Sinai Hospital, the
bouse surgeon examined, the fright
ful burns, and. sadly said that , she
oould not live as the shock" to her
system would be too great for her
body to stand. But she did not die.
Th&a nrna o nrcr t i m A t.fiAt. aha hnnff
so low ana waverea in tne oaiance
that it seemed as if she would die
every b,our. be was kept tender the
jnfluenjse of opiates to xleade.n the
naiD. and the wounas were treated
antiseDtically. and after a time there
was a change, though nareiy percep
tioie at nrgi, anu aeu sqo jsrew a,
tle stronger, abd the wounds began
to Jieai. it was siow worxy we : ro
cess or. ; neanng - eitenamg ovey
rnonths, and the most earful watch
was kept to prevent diooq poisoaing
She was reduced to -
A MERE SKELETON,
but such tenacity of life is rarely ever
seen. - k
Finally all the wounds ;wer closed
save the lef t lg. jqu toe inside of
whieh there w&f a plape about .six
inphes long - ryinmug upwardi from
just aoove tne ansie, tnai was ODsti
nate in the extreme, would not "heal:
and kept up a constant an deb.ilU
tatme discnarge, inis would kui
the patient it 't continued, as. tne
blood would De anectea i sooner or
later, and some measure had to be
deyiged to ;4 natuye m effecting the
cure. - It was determined: to try-a
plastic operation. Before trying Off
a large scale small : pieces of skin
were cut - from; Minnie's arm : and
planted upon the raw flesh of 5er leg,
Thev took root and became fast. ; Be:
ing 8atisned tnati tnere was- a gooa
chance of success for, tbe mam. opei?a
tion, she was taken to the operatiog
room ana placed unaer; ine muaence
of ether. Then the entire ulcerated
surface of the left legwas scraped
with a knife .and all the . irritating
nnbstance8 m the form- of decayed
flesh end pus were taken away. "Both
legB being held close together, space
was marKeu ne Tigus
rectly opposite the wound.: with; a
aham knife the attending surgeon
made two parallel incisions m the
right leg, following the shape of the
wound and running it a little longer.
At the top of these incisions anfither

then tbe entire akin, with a 'j.
THN LATfEB OF FLESH -ijv
was delicately dissected -up, until ; a
flap was made about seyen inches
long. -This waS iieit attacoeu Jto tne
leg at : the I bobtom.;The :two Hags
being brought together, this flap was
in id iinnn the raw. ; Q uivering flesh in
the left lee. and-cut ahdadiusted ko
fit the wound. While the legs wei-e
held in .this position,: narrow strips
of ; sticking plaster A were wound
around them, and ; then bandages
which bad been prepared with plaster
of , paris were run between and
around the legs in '. such a manner
that when the ulaater hardened they
would be held as firmly as if encased
in stone. The wound was left uni
covered save with antiseptic dress-
inrs. eo as it could be watched, c
.. Where Jthe two pieces of. flesh were
united, there avaa coneiderabls sluS
ine for a time,, and then the new
piece of flesh, took hold aa if it be
longed there, it was dressed care
fully, and wherever the flesh decayp d
it was cut off. So that the legs might
uub ue movea mey were- held sus
pended by -an ingenious -contrivance
which took all the strain off tbe mus
cles in the loins After three weeks
the bandages were removed ; and it
was found that there had been per
fect union of the flesh, and that
everything presented a healthy ap
pearance. - The , flap was then cut
loose from the right leg and trimmed
off to fit properly,- and . everything
went on swimmingly. There being n
cicatrical " tissue on the right leg
where the skin had been taken from;
it rapidly closed up, and had even
healed before the new calf that' had
been manufactured was pnrrect In
about six week from the time of the
operation Minnie was walking around
the wards and 1 recovering : her
strength -rapidly. She wenti away
from the hospital a few days ago, af
ter nearly a year's residence, feeling
no wor-e for an exchange of calf, and
when dressed there is only a slight
limp- to mark the ordeal through
which she had passed, v . i
BEECHEK EXPECTED TO DIE.

- New York, June 5.-Henry -Ward
Beecher is seriously ill, and - will
preach a week from tomorrow what
he firmly, believes will - be; bis , last
sermon m ..fly mouth church, lie
expects to die of an apoplectic stroke
oetore long. " That has .been his con
viction for a year, and he has talked
it to his intimate friends repeatedly.
In so thinking be has been mfluenc
ed by his physical temperament,; his
failing health, his old age and his
family tendencies. In conversation
on the subject he has been cool, calm
and cheerful, but utterly hopeless of
surviving; the year. Deacon John
Howard, his closest personal friend
and constant companion, recently
called a meeting of the Plymouth
deacons and spoke to them of their
pastor's feebleness. - It had been
Beecher s annual custom to continue
preaching until the end of .July, and
then take a vacation extending-' well
into September, on acount of recur
rence of hay fever early in the
autumn. But Deacon Howard repre
sented that the venerable clergyman
would navo to stop worK at once or
break "down at ' it. . His nafarally
8rQg constitution was - eviaBntly
givmg way to age s inhrmittes, and
premonitions of apoplexy were mani
fest. " The deacons voted unanimous
ly ; that a vacation ought to begin at
once and last until t October. The
trustees, in whom the powerj really
rests, have now agreed to that pro
position, and last evening the matter
was laid before the congregation for
approval. Mr. Beecher, has decided
to go to Europe on June I7th, ao.
companied by his wife. He hopes
that Gladstone will appeal J to xh&
voters of England in an election for
indorsement of his Home-Rule for
Ireland policy, in which case he will
take the stump for him. His; ad vis-.
ers adjure him to -do no spe king
abroad, but to rest entirely,! but he
says tnat poiiticar oratory in ng-
land would be recreation, and be has
already written ta Gladstone, with
whom he has for twenty years been
in occasional correspondence, tend
ering his services should they, be
desired. He trunks that such em
ployment would help rather that
hinder nim- in health, and he - is
thought to be ambitious .to make his
mark once more a an orator before
he dies. - - 1 ..
