Ml estabitabed. The greatest care
was taken in securing the natural
adaptation of the parts to a fraction of
a linle, and the skull, having been re
placdl simply. was held down and in
position by the scalp, which was drawn
over, and its edges-confined by strips
of adhesive plaster, and over all was
placed a handage. It was not until
several days had passed that tije pres
sure upon the carotid arteries was en.
tirely relaxed,. althounah before the
skull was replaced the flow of blood in
the vessels of the brain 'was proved to
be restored. Tihe chiet fear was from
the results of inflammation antd suppo
Iatien, Iut fortunately neither ensued,
and the aonnded Parts healed kindll.
There was from tlhe first no dtffieulty in
feeding the patient, nor was difficulty
anticipated, for it is well known that in
Plppies and kittens itn which the entire
brain has been removed sucking and
sWallon ing go on as well as beforie the
operation, and in this case the nerves
which preside over deglutition and di
gest-t.n were far below the point of!
sutition. The patient remained in a
sound sleep for two weeks, as in a case
of ipoplexy, the circuilation, digestion
and all the vegetative fulnctions of life
hbeitg ninterrupted. The gradual
onion of the parts was shown by faint
lint gladuall increasing movements of
the lnlhs, of the jaws and of the mIus
les o.f expression,, in the face. Speech
did not become possible until the close
of the third week, and then it was les.
itating, staimnerirg, as a chihl learns.
Although it was evident that thle pa
tient tri ed to titter wormds and sen
tences, it was very gradnally that
the power of intelligible articulation
retuorned.
The Gazette contains the report. in a
tabular form, no the increasing vollll

Iis measured from day to dlay by the

tP'The promlotion of Fred Grant., the

the action of the President. A yonng

Make Friends.
I will give you an unfailing key to
success said an experienced man to his
young .friend: "Make one new friend
every day, and retain all you make."
Three hundrend and sixty-five friends
s year would certainly be an important
an1xiliary to the "'productive resources"
of an ambitious young man making his
way in the world. But then comes the
question: How are these friends to be
made? It will be easy enough to re
tain a friend once earned, but how can
this very excellent prescription of
making friends be carried out? There
may be many ways in which progress
may eo had in this direction, even if
the tatk should'not be literally accom
plilhed. Let us look at the matter in
a rational way. To commence with,
civility is an excellevmt bait with which
to catch friends; and civility is cheap.
Nothing is easier to keep a "constant
lyv on hand" There are bogus articles
sometimes attempt-d to be palmed off
for the real thing, but they are all so
base that they are easily detected. Oh
sequiousiess is one; ilattery another;
mock modesty a third; officiousness a
iurth, and so on. These may have
theen ' nine stamp" but their spuri
iousness is easily -dcctected. True civ
ility needs no false lights to show its
points. It is theenmbodimentof Truth;
the mere opening out of-the inner self.
The arts and artifices of a polished ex
terior are well enough; but if they are
anything l ss or more than a fair ex
ponent of inward rectitude, their hol
lowness cannot long escape detection.
Shakspeare lies said, +'A man may
smile, and smile, and he a villain," but
all the world knows that there is a
wide difference between the snmile of a
xillai n anti that of an honest man.
Courtesy, which is the natural ont
growth of inward gentleness, bears it~
characteristics by the artless child as
by the grown man. Civility, there
fore, to be effective in this quest, must
have the sub-statutn of goodness. It
nlast be pervading. alnt noiforni not
exceptionaiil iand titful. It is all very
well to lay the blame of a iiunreliable
and expilosive temper upon weak di
gesiion, ar that "rash himnor" inheri
ted tfrom others; bult its distrous effects
are all the same. The worst tenlpers
are made subservient to a well settled
and persistent lprinciple of right doing,
anul that is the only thing which can
be relied on.--[Excihantge.
No WoxMAN PUNcTn Ar..-A paper
Icalled the Civilian, edited by somll
;wretch. has the tiudacity to say that
ino ladyv is etver punctulal; that lno lady

durltion of live iiiiutes, or an houinr,
or anyt other loni ger or shor'ter slacel of

precionrshours tlo ressinig, atid will
any day lose a traiti for the sake of
putting on her glo-ves. The odd thiings
is that she niever thiiugs of the irrita
tion which she causes by htlr disregard
for the rules of punctuality.
A gentletman whilo grilnmbles because

h A German cartman in Houston,
"e'Exas, is worth 4.(iti000,
The Valley of the Shadow,
It is calculated that there die each
day upon this earth 91,824 human be
ings-which gives 3,826 hour by hour,
and 64 every minute. Each tick of the
clock sounds the funeral knell of a
passing spirit. To each one that de
parts, thl world has comne to an end,
as much as it will be to those who wit
ness the conflagration of the last day.
l);spite t h is a perpetual experience,
Death remains to the great majority of
mankind strange, melancholy, inseru
table. The heart of universal man
kind darkens at his approach. "The
last enemy which shall be destroyed is
SDeath," and as an enemy he is always
destroved to those who are not, like
ehildren, alartied by the darkness, but
see beyond it the lights in their Fath
!er's house,' and are introduced to a
brighter and happier state of exis
tence.
But, sadder and more bitter than the
prodigions daily array of deaths which
we have named are the bitter tears and
heart broken sighs of the bereaved.
We May count the deaths, but who
shall count tlhse sighs and teurst Even
1Jegus wept at the grave of Lazarus. If
the sting of death is taken away by the
grace which CUh'ist listows, the surviv
ors are more to be compassionated than
the dead. Why should he be coutnois
eratedl who has exehanged a lifet of tri
bnlation for a smooth haven and eter
nal safety? It is those who are left; it
is the anguithed, living hearts that de
uiand our sympathy. Yet even of
these, when servants of God, it is saidl,
"lIe putteth their tears in his botfle."
lie preserves the tears of his sainlts.
Blessed are they that mouru, for they
shall be comforted. Every sacred
drop of santiqed affliction shall one
day be luntinnts with the glories of
Heaven, as the sunbeams shine in the
dew drops.
Far aid -r, it has always seemned to
us, than even the first anguish of ber
eavement, in the grand eflacing of the
recollection of t he dead which is
wrought by time. It is a merciftil pro
vision to man that Timle should brilng
healing its wing to woiuided souls, or
else each ber-eaved household would
be ever filled with the sights and sounds
of woe. And yet, hliinanly speaking,
we never so entirely part with the
dend, as when the familiar face begins
to fade away in the dimn distance of
years, and anll event which mice ao-
vulsed us with agony can be sploken of
without emotion, I i 'the one case
our frtiends have died to us; in the
other, we die to our friends. And liho
sooln, as one has said, the dead are tbr
gotten ! Surely no wish could lie more
rational inl the dying than those they
leave should not buat them in oblivion
as well as the grave; and no invocalion
Iiore ra';tional to the survivors than,
"iLord keep my memory green."
Yet even thile sadiess of the ''obliv
ions antidote" which Time is merciful
ly instrutmental in administering to
huimnnu woe. is relieved by the thought
that the Resurrection will one day
bring up from the grave not only the
iboly, but thile soul, with all its memo
iies and affectionls, as tresh aind strong
as when l)eath hid with his dark shad
ow the light of tlteir earthly hlnie, so
that those who arme separated hlere shall
not only mieet in Heaven, but meet
feeling as they would have felt, if the
dead had been restored to life ere the
grave had received them; as the. wid
ow of T'iin felt when the avioiur gave
the dead man back to his mother.
