' - Â· .For years Bobby Wallace ranked a.1 the best third baseman In the business^ even better than Jimmy CoUIns, of-the old Bostons.- Tomer, because of bis consistency and versatility, has always been classed as one of the most valuable players.

Surgeons and medical students attending Jefferson Medical College and Hospital discussed with great interest a remarkt ble operation suggested by a leading surgeon at a clinic on Wednesday In which an artificial jaw, made at sliver wire, shall take the place of one., whose entire removal'is made necessary because of infection or death to tho bone. Removal.' of the Jaw sometimes 10 necessary If the life of a patient Is to be saved. It always results In great disfigurement, as Tell as serious Interference with swallowing ami speech. A surgeon attached to the hospital aald the suggestion of using silver wire for building up tn artiflclal Jaw was: an Idea worth tae most serious Â·attention. He added: ' : "Under certain clrumstancefl wo can remove the jaw, but leave the peri- osteum, and muscle attachments. This new Idea 1Â» then to take silver wire, twfst it Into the proper shape, and cover It with the periosteum. TJnder good conditions I have no doubt .that there soon will begin a process of bone Krowth from the periosteum, which wfn form over the silver wire model, which will act as a icattold for tW, new bone growth.. After a time we-'\eaa begin to remove small sections of tie silver wire aÂ« the new jaw grows stronger. Toe- regeneration taking: place from the periosteum should, according to f.ll surgeons can surmise, form quite a good new 3aw." --Philadelphia Public Ledger. .

Eve and half tons of coal art burned each. year for each undeveloped horsepower available from our rivers and streams. At the low rate of two dollars per ton this shows a waste of $11 a year for each undeveloped horsepower. The extent ot the total yearly waste from' this source alone. is said to be' M-orth the price of 30,000,000 tons of coal. The waste is helping a lot to increase the price of coal, the demand for which is continually increasing, due to increasing factory, shop and home demands. There is hardly a waterpower of any size in this country that cannot bs harnessed to electric generators and its power transmitted to nearby cities and villages for manufacturing purposes. Transmission .lines of 200 and 300 miles are not unusual. He Saves Freezing Horse.

An hour later the horse was still there, and, fearing he would freeze, kindly Mrs. Bonne'r telephoned to Constable' Reynolds. He left his warm bed, walked three miles through the snow and threw a blanket over the animal, saying: "Whoa, boy; I'll take care of you." When Reynolds started to lead the animal away he discovered it was a wooden horse consigned by freight to a local harness malter. Curtains.-New York Herald.
