Monday, August 21,1916. THE FORT WAYNE SENTINEL Eleven. OF OLD LA- TAKE Do you know that once every summer There's a day for the women to meet? A day when some old acquaintance And you, one another can greet? You can see the real funny costumes, You'll laugh at them in the parade, For you'll see all kinds of citations, With dresses of most every shade. It requires but a little effort To join in this merry glee; Your tattered and time-worn wrapper May prove a prize winner for thee. So cobble up any old costume, The worse you can look--the more fun, For not a soul will be frightened; Xot a single one will need run. The place is the coolest and nicest. The oldest is crowned a real oueen. And when we think of her curtain Of life almost closing the scene, We honor and love her most dearly, For we know she's not long to stay. And many a time we wonder Who'll be 'here on next Woman's day. If you have a dear aged mother, One whose hair has turned snow white; One whose hand is worn and wrinkled. You surely can make her life bright. You can take her out ttis summer Where the old and the grey reign su- ·preme. Her day there will be very pleasant, Her life once more a sweet dream. Borne who were with us last summer Have passed through the pearly white gate; And some who go now to this gathering 'Fore next year may share the same fate. So take grandma along: sh""!! enjoy it. She mav iut be with YOU next vear. She'll be honored and cared for most surely. For her comfort you need never fear.

Elyria, 0., Aug. 12.--American surgeons in France are putting new faces on mutilated soldiers! Mrs. Win. G. Sharp, wife of the United States ambassador to France, lias just returned to her home here from Paris, where, she says, she witnessed miraculous surgical feats. "As chairman of the women's auxiliary of the American ambulance in Paris I wns given the freedom of hospitals," said Mrs. Sharp today. "I saw a man brought into the American ambulance with his face shattered into an unrecognizable and indescribable mass. His lower jaw had been shot away. His face was lipless. toothless, shap'eless. Four month? lr.trr 1 s.n\ that same man walk out w i t h a new j:«\v, a new set of teeth, a new nose, in fact, a new face! "This was accomplished by plastic operations. ''The surgeon in charge. ;m American, giafted a piece of bor.t- taken from the man's thigh onto the remnants of the lower jaw. A cast nietal capping wn? made for the teeth. This part of the process was done by a dentist. "A piece of rib, with iti membrane, was grafted onto what remained of the nose. Skin was then wken from the man's forehead and grafted onto the remnants of the cheeks and over the chin. ''When the patient was ready to leave the hospital he was told Ins appcflranr- 1 could be further improved, but he W.M so satisfied with his new face he would not consider further grafting "Another remarkable piece of surgery was performed on a German prisoner who had been struck by shrrnpncl and burned by liquid fire. The Irft side of his face was terribly burned. The lid was gone from his eye.. '"Surgeons grafted skin taken from his forehead, just where tiie hair-li'io began, and ao cleverly was the operation performed the man left the hospital, not only with n new eye-lid but a new eve-lash as well!
