—G. C. F. came under my care April 28, 1905. Ten days previously he had been kicked by a horse, in the right lumbar region, while at work in a livery barn. During these ten days he had been cared for at Kersey, Colo., where the accident occurred. He was prostrated by the force and shock of the injury and for some days suffered intensely. Six or seven days later, as he was feeling much better, he dressed and walked for a few minutes. This was followed by considerable hemorrhage from the bladder, a slight trace of which was observed the day after the injury. As this complication continued, he was removed to Weld County Hospital, where I first saw him. His previous history presented some interesting and noteworthy points. Three years earlier, while in the United States Navy at Norfolk, Va., he had been operated on for appendicitis.
