Some time ago young Beecher who is about 18 years of age, after being overheated in the harvest field took a bath in cold spring water, and shortly thereafter had an attack of rheumatism. His left arm became very sore and finally erysipelas set in rendering amputation necessary. The operation we understand was performed by Dr. Cutler, of Dodgeville.
