Azariah Nellis of South Perry street, Johnstown, was removed to the Nathan Littauer hospital yesterday morning, where he had one of his. legs amputated just below the knee, yesterday after noon. Mr. Nellis has been suffering from gangrene for some time, ■which it is supposed originated from a bruise on the ball of the foot, imtil all the toes had become affected, and the dis ease was gradually entering the foot. Dr. C. B. Mosher, the attending physi cian, counseled with Dr. W. C. Wood Saturday, as to the best treatment to he applied, and it was decided that to avoid blood poisoning, it would be nec essary to amputate the leg, a s above stated. Drs. W. C. Wood and C. B. Mosher performed the operation. Counterfeit Notes in Circulation. Counterfeit ?10, $5 and $1 notes are in circulation, and as a consequence United States secret service men are putting forth every effort to run down the gang, whose headquarters are be lieved to be in the vicinity of Roches ter. The ?10 certificate is said to be a very clever make. The period between •■D.” and “C.” in “D. C.” below the por trait of Hendricks is omitted. The im print of the bureau of engraving and printing upon the left end back of the note is also omitted, and the color of the seal shows through on the back of the note. The other notes are fairly deceptive, but are readily distinguished by a casual observer. Damages Against St. Johnsville.

WILLIAM HAAG BADLY INJURED. The Skin and Flesh were Ground from His Fingers. The Skins a r e Obtained from the Bu bonic Plague Region. The bubonic plague, which has been causing such havoc ,in various coun tries of the world, has not neached Gloversville, .and it is probable that even if it did the rigors of the climate would kill the disease, but i t is inter esting to note that because the plague has developed a t Aden., .the port of southern Turkey, in Asia, .and Arabia, on .the gulf of Aden, the importation of mocha skins, which are tanned in this city and made into fine glo^ves, has ceased, 'at least .temporarily, as there is no desire on the part of the importers to handle skins ■vVhich have come from a plague infeeted port .and there is also a lack 'Of die^ire on, -the p art of any .man ufacturer to handle any skins in which the germs of .the bubonic plague may be lurking, although there would ■probably be no. danger in this, vicinity. The reason for th'e cessation of the im portations is du,e.to.t!hie fact that mocha skins .are the product of Arabia, .being taken from the Somiaili sheep. Tbe skins are sun dried in Arabia and then shipped from the port of Aden to New Yi>rk, where they .are purcbasied by manufacturers, 'dressed lu the mills of this city and finally turned into gloves. In being .taken to Aden tbe skins are nacessarWy exposed to the plague, and as they are shipped to NejW York, then to Gloversville, it can readily be seen how the bubonic plagne couid be trans ferred from the Asiatic country to this city. It is not toeli eve d that any infe ct- ed skins have been received at New York, and .as far as this city is concern ed, it is a doubtful m atter if any plague germs ever live to get here. Everyone says our ladies’ suits are finest in the city. Judson & Rogers. HEARING ON CHARTER AMEND MENT.

William Haag, proprietor of Haag’s cutting die works at No. 15 Cayadutta street, met with an accident this morn ing at his factory by which both hands were badly injured and he came near losing the fingers on each of them. At the time of the accident, Mr. Plaag was working over a stonq which is used to sharpen tools and had an instrument in his hands by which he was improv ing- the condition of the stone. The latter was revolving in a horizontal di rection, and in some way the instru ment in tbe hands of the proprietor was torn from him and his right'hand was dragged under the stone and along the frame surrounding it. In trying to dave bis right hand from serious in jury, Mr. Haag used' his left hand, and by the time the members were.released they ■were in frightful shape. On the right band all tbe flesh on the back of the fingers was torn off and the cords lacerated, the wounds extending to the finger bones. The first three fingers of the left hand also suffered in a manner similar to the fingers of th(^ right hand, and the flesh was torn and lascerated in a most painful manner. As soon as possible. Dr. Gale was summoned and dressed tbe wounds, and hopes to ■ he able to save the fingers from amputa tion. Mr. Haag was taken to his home at No. 64 West Pine street and will be unable to resume or do any work with his hands for some time to come. There is a possibility that the injuries to the cords of the fingers may cause a stiff ness of tbe bands, but the attending physician beliCTes' that proper treat ment will restore the unfortunate man’s hands to their proper condition. His Share of Bad Luck. A serious and very peculiar accident happened to Frederick Sternburg at Herkim'sr yesterday afternoon at 2 o’clock.' Mr. Steimburg is visiting at the home of his sister, Mrs. George Sautter, and about the hour named, as he was carrying a harness across the barn floor in the rear of the Sautter •block, his foot slipped and he fell b.ack- ward, fracturing his Isft knee cap. A peculiar thing about the accident is that th'e knee did not come in contact with the floor. The fracture was re- ■duced by Dr. George, Gra^ves. It seems that Mr. Sternberg has his shai-e of bad luck. A week ago yesterday morning his hotel at Lakeport, on eida Lake, was burned to the ground, d M; ■ ■ naiTov DRBSSMAIH3RS.
