Bean Removed from Nose
Dr. C. R. Wright performed a delicate operation, removing a bean from the nose of James Colyer, 3 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Neal Colyer of near Strawberry.
The boy pushed the bean up his nose whole playing and efforts of the family to remove it had failed. It was painful to breathe for four days with one nostril open until the boy was brought to the doctor to have the bean removed with special instruments.
