From a laborer, set. thirty-four years. Disease of two years' duration, and for three months he had done no work, though he was able to walk with the help of two canes. General health sufficiently good, but failed after his en- trance into the hospital (33, 1). Abscesses formed, and at the end of about two months the limb was amputated, but he continued to sink, and died on the sixth day.
