--Sheriff Coons, of Sacramento, Cal., last winter was in the habit of putting his knee upon the edge of a table in his office in order to reach the gas burner, but after doing so a number of times he found that the sharp edge of the table was hurting his leg, and afterward he stood upon a chair when lighting up. Recently the leg began to trouble him, growing worse daily, and the result is that amputation of the limb will be necessary to save his life.—San Francisco Chronicle.
