..... Guilbeau of Carencro, who went to New Orleans a few days ago to have an operation performed for the removal of the leaden missive received at the base of his neck in the affray occuring last fall, is back at home a better man. The judge went to Touro's infirmary where the surgeon's knife removed a 38-caliber pistol bullet neatly wrapped up in several thicknesses of "patcheen" whihc had been cut from the coat, shirt, and underclothing of the victim as it entered the body and lodged in the collar bone, which it had split and shattered. The pieces of clothing were stills entwined about the ball, as nicely as though they had been wrapped there by human skill.
It was pronounced a good scientific shot. We congratulate Mr. Guilbeau on the outcome of the surgical operation and in getting rid of the deadly leaden missive.
