A FATAL MISTAKE.
Tan Cleveland (Ohio) Pr-.M,
of February 2M, 1883, pu)
lished an account of a fatal
urgil operation which caiiseil
a great corumotion among me-
ical mm thxoochoiit the whole j
country, Dr. Thayer, the most
eminent surgeon in Cleveland,
pronouncing it scandalous. It
appears that a Mrs, King had
been suffering for many years
from some diea? of the stom
ack, which had resisted the
treatment of all the physicians
in attendance. The disease
commenced with a slight de
rangement of the digestion,
with a poor, appetite, followed
by a peculiar indescribable dis
tress in the stomach, a feeling
that has been described as a
faint "all gone1 sensation, a
sticky slime, collecting about
th teeth, causing a disagree
able taste. This sensation was
not removed by food, but, on
the contrary, it was increased.
After a while the hnmls and
feet became cold and sticky
a cold perspiration. There
was a constant tired and lan
guid feeling. Then followed a
dreadful nervouns, with
gloomy forebodings. Finally
tue patieut was unable to re
tain any food whatever, and
there was constant pain in the
abdomen. All prescribed rem
edies failing to give relief, a
consultation was held, when it
was decided that the patient
had a cancer in the stomach,
and in order to save the patient's
life an operation was justifi
able. Accordingly, on the 2 2d
ot February, lb8S, the opera
tion .was performed by Dr.
Vance La the presence of Dr.
Tttckerman, Dr. PerrieT, Dr.
Arms, Dr. Gordon, Dr. Career,
and Dr. JIalliweU of the Police
Board. The operation consist
ed in laving open the cavity
of the abdomen and exposing
tha stomach and bowels. When
this had been done an examin
ation of the organs was made,
but to the horror and dismay
of the doctors then was no
cancer to be ouuI. The pa
tient did not have a cancer.
When too late the medical men
discovered that tbey had made
a terrible mistake ; but they
as wed the parts together and
dressed the wound that they
had made, but the poor woman
sa&k from exhaustion and died
in ra few hour. How sad rt
most be for the bueband of this
poor j woman to know that his
wife died from the effects of a
lurffieal operation that ought
never to have teen performed. ,
If this woman had taken the
proper remedy for Dyspepsia
and Nervous Prostration (for
this was what the disease really
was), she would have been liv
ing today. Shaker Extract or
.Roots, or Seoxl's Ccbativx
Srmur, a remedy made ex
pressly for Dyspepsia or Indi
gestion, has restored many such,
cases to perfect health after all
other kinds of treatment have
failed. The evidence of its
efficacy in curing this class of
eases is too voluminous to be
published here ; but those who
read the published evidence in
, favor of tkis dyspeptic remedy
do. not question its convincing
nature, and the article has an
extensive sale. i n aa I

The Knights of Labor 111 this
State have taken a step in the right
direction in keeping their order out
of politics in holding aloof from
candidates and party organization.
It was reported not long since that
the proposed to make their support
of candidates for the next Legisla
ture depend upon the candidates
support of their measures in event
of election, and it was also hinted
that in certain contingencies they
would put candidates of their own
in the field. Their best friends re
gretted both these steps as preju
dicial to the order, for if their cause
is ever to triumph it mnst commend
itsell to the reason and sense ofjus
ticeto be found in all parties, just
as their membership represents all
all parties. Now it i a stated with
spparent authority that both
rumors are incorrect, and that the
candidates for legislative honors
are not to be interviewed, and no
distinct party nominations made by
the Knights of Labor as and order
There is a tendency, and naturally
so, in this conntry to associate all
organization of this character with
political movements. The univer
sal right of suffrage, coupled with
the power of legislation to furnish
the needed remedies lor any evils
complained of, suggest to all large
bodiesseparate political movements
as the best method of compassing
their ends. But experience has
taught that it is the worst step
they can take, for the reason that
they are not adepts in the craft ofjntter
politics, aad are invariably used by
elf seeking political sharpers, who
care nothing about them. Beerdes
which it is a mistake to multiply
political issues in this country, even
it it could be.done successfully; for
it is obvious that political scrub
races would follow, resulting in class
legislation, which is always to be
deplored. The legislation sought
by intelligent labor Btands upon
broader ground than mere class
favors and privileges. Another
step in the right direction is the
notice taken of Mr. Powderly's
advice to the order to revive the
celebration of the Fourth of July,
and to display only national nags
on that occasion. A little more
patriotism infused into the body
potitic will do much good, for there
is a lamentable want of it in nation al
feeling. This is promoted by patrio
tic observances on all anniversaries
of greatnational events, and es
pecially the "glorious Fourth. "
There is an effort, we observe, being
made m other localities to revive
the old feelings which made the
Fourth conspicuously our err eat
national anniversary, and which
lost interest with the war, especially
in the States south of Mason and
Dixon's line. There was never any
reason for this, because the war be
tween the States had nothing to do
wTththe early glorieefof the republic,
and the South is quite as much en
titled to enjoy the legacy their
fathers left them as their sisters
of the North. Why should Virginia
forget her son whose hand penned
the great Declaration, and which
today more than ever nils the world
with promise, and suffer the Com
monwealths ot the North to cele
brate his work, while she, the
mother State, is silent? Why
shall Maryland or the Carolinas, or
any of the Southern States, feel
less interest in the greatest event
In the world's history and do less
honor to its anniversary than other
Commonwealths, many of which
were without existence when all
men were declared "tree and equal?"
Certainly it was not the glories of
the revolutionary period the South
was trying to get rid of when Sum
ter fell, nor did she surrender her
share in the memories of those
times at Appomattox. She bore
her full part iu the trials and strug
gles that gave us national life, she
gave to the country most ot the
statesmen and soldiers who left
their mark upon that great period,
and she ought to cherish and honor
their memories and their deeds with
each recurring anniversary. The
people of .Philadelphia are mak
ing an effort to have an oldfashion
eu glorification on tne coming
Fourth, and a considerable sum of
money has already been raised lor
that purpose. The Knights of
Labor seem disposed to do their
part toward reviving interest in the
dav, and it is to be hoped that all
others will fall into line and do
something to make the Fourth of
July a red-letter day in the calendar
of time. Baltimore Sun.

Fisli Ponds in Npriniry Place.
When it becomes desirable to
construct a fish pond in a place
where there are springs, or to dam
up the water and make a pond in
a springy place, it is a good plan
to cover the springs with several
loads of gravel for the fish to
spawn on. ine borders ol such a
pond should be made very shallow,
so that the little fish run up in the
shallow water and escape the large
fish, or have the pond so arranged
that after the fish have spawned
the huge ones may be removed.
By so doing, the eggs will hatch
out and the young tlsh will grow
without danger. When the next
season of spawning comes, the
little fish may be removed into
another pond and the old ones let
in to spawn again. Such a pond is
specially adapted for persons who
cannot devote a great deal of time
toil and who desire to manage it
with as little care as possible." In
this way,a4good many fish can be
raised withont much trouble. The
gravel must be sifted and all the fine
parts rejected ; none smaller than
a hickory nut should be used, and
from that to a good-sized lien's
Not infrequently the bottom of
such a pond is porous aud absorbs
the water nearly as fast as it runs
iu,so that there is but little if any
overtlow at the proper outlet, If
you are short of w ater ami wish to
use all you can possibly get for
another pond or for other purposes,
if is li-.! tn pnT.w.ni Mif hnrfnm
But if you have no further use for
the w ater, it makes no dilTerence
how it goes off. provided there are
no holas in the bottom large
enough to let the fish escape and
the w ater keeps up to its level. In
case the water should prove too
warm for trout, such a pond would
answer for bass, perch, goId-ti.su,
or carj). Setii GliKK.N.

How a Tailor Got His Iffonnv.
A miserly English nobleman
Lord Hath who lived many years
ago, owed his tailor some eight
hundred pounds, which Le utterly
refused to pay. The tailor sent
him many letters stating that he
had himself paid out a good deal of
money for cloth, velvet, and trim
mings of all sorts, and could not
atl'ord to give so much away: bat
disonest nobleman never even so
much as answered him. He called
and told Lord Hath how many
troubles he had had; how hard
times were, and that nothing but
necessity would ever make him
press his bill. Lord Hath promised
to pay him shortly, bur only to get
1 id of him.
finally the tailor grew
He stood in the entrance
Cords Catus residence when he,
had company, and cried:
"1 want my money. The clothes
ou have on are not paid for."
The servants turned him awav.
He. followed his lordship to places
where he visited, forced his way in
to the hall, and insisted on being
paid. The hosrs had him arrested
several times, and he was charged
with being insane.
Finally he follow ed Lord Hath to
church one morning, and seated
himself in the pew behind him. As
the nobleman sat erect, leaning a
little backward, there came a sharp
whisper in his ear;
"You call yourself a Christian,
and cheat a poor tailor, do you?"
Lord Hath shifted his seat; the
tailor followed him.
T want my money,1' ho whisper
ed. When in the course of the ser
vice the congregation arose, those,
at a distance who noticed the tailor,
on i n saw a respectable man seem
iug! joining in the responses; but
every time he opened his mouth,
the tailor whispered: ''Pay me my
money,'' in Lord Bath's ear.
Singularly enough, the sermon
was on avarice. The tailor pointed
every moral by whispering: "Just
like you. my lord."
The clergyman hinted, as preach
ers of all denominations were apt
to do iu those days, at the probable
fate of the miser, and the tailor be
hind Lord Hath breathed, with
great apparent earnestness, in nis
ear such worths as these:
"There now, my lord. See w here
you're likely to go to, my lord.
See what is to happen to 3011 if
you're too fond of your gold uot to
be honest. I wouldn't risk it, my
lord, if 1 was you. The parson

his peroration, the clergyman
waxed eloquent, the tailor, lifting
his voice higher than he had before,
filled each pause with an earnest:
"Ah! that's you to a certainty, my
lord. He's got you pat, my lord.

The Rector, in his high pnlpif,
heard nothing of all this, but the
people m the pew s all about were
staring. Those home truths, per
haps, touched the miserly noble
man's concience. At the conclusion
of the benediction he requested the
tailor to call on him the next morn
ing, and on his doing so, his lordship
gave him a check for the full amount
of tne debt.
His Last Request.
Many long vears ago old Spor
sent an article to one of the leading
magazines, which was promptly ac
ccpted and paid for. Since that
time Spork has bought a magazine
every month in the expectation of
seeing his article in print, and has
already sduandered in this manner
a very substantial fortune but the
article has not appeared. The
other dav he sat down and wrote
the following letter to the editor of
"My once princely lortune is
squandered in buying copies of
your magazine, in the expectation
of seeing my article, written sixty
three years ago, in the vigor and
buoyancy of my youth, published
therein. My health is broken: my
nopes are blasted; 1 leel the near
approach of death. These are
trirles, you may say, but tbey affect
me; and consequently I wish vou
to heed the request of a dying man
lam 9 1 years of age, and cannot
possibie live another year. At
most I can buy but three or four
copies more of vour magazine: and
so yon cannot make another dollar
by witholding the publication of my
article. As a further inducement
to publication I will refund the
amount of the original check paid
for the article, provided It is pub
lished before niv death. 1 ours re

A Wonderful Voice.
Syracuse has a marvel in the
person of one Baron Arthur de Col
lard, as he now calls himself,
though he originally came to the
town bearing the name of Arthur
Dralloc, which, the reader will
perceive, is simply Collard spelled
backward. What gives Collard or
Dralloc especial distinction is the
fact that he can sing eight octaves
below the deepest bass, and
above Patti, the peerless soprano
I his. says tne btanaara, means
greater range than the Steinway
concert grand piano anords. It
implies vocal compass that begins
far below Myron Whitney's lowest
note and runs octaves above Ger-
ster's high C. It is three or four
times in excess of the best records
There is also a mystery connected
with the singer's history, and it is
solemnly hinted that there is a
close relationship between him and
the late Napoleon of France. He
himself says : 4iMy father is a baron
and toy mother is a countess. My
mother is still living in London. I
have not two, but eighteen medals
for singing, and am proficient in
eight languages. I am the only
person in the world who can sing
in eight octaves. I have travelled
the w orld over to meet some one
who will meet me in competition
in singing in eight octaves." There
are some facts that need alitle ex
planation, however; before all tha
stories told about the baron can
be accepted as true. Altogether, '
through, if he is not a humbng, he
is a phenomenon, and the wonder
is that he hasn't been heard of
before. Boston Leader.
An Irshman called on a lady and
gentleman, in whose employ he was,
for the purpose of getting some tea
and toba'co. "I had a dhrame
last night, yer honor." "What
was it. Pat?"' "Why, I dhramed
that your honor made me a presi
dent of a plug of tobaccy, and her
ladyship there Heaven bless her!
gave me some tav for thegood.wife."
"Ah, Pat, dream8go by contraries,
as vou well know." "Faith, and
thev do that," said Pat, withont
the least hesitatiou; "so your lady
ship is give me the tobaccy, and his
honor the tay."
