Dr. Connolly Loses Leg
Dr. Commodore Connolly, of Richardson, one of the county's best known
physicians and best liked men, underwent an operation in St. Joseph's hospital
last week in which his right leg was amputated at the knee.
It will be remembered that Dr. Connolly was stricken with rheumatism
several months ago and his condition soon became serious. He suffered
greatly with the disease, his right leg being terribly drawn out of shape.
For some time he has been in the hospital above mentioned and it was hoped
that the injured member could be saved. This was found impossible
and the operation was performed. The doctor is getting along very
well now and will be able to return home in due time. His many friends
in all sections of the county will regret to hear of his misfortune, but
will be thankful that his life is spared.
