A SKILFUL SURCICAL OPERATION.
The American Ambassador at Vienna,
Mr. Kasson, has lately forwarded to his
Government an interesting account of a
remnrkablo surgical operation lately
perfo'rmed by Professor Billroth, of
Vienna, which, wonderful to tell, con.
Bistort in tho removal of a portion
of tho human stomach, involving
nearly one-third of tho organ and,
strange to say, tho patient recovered
the only successful operation of the
kind over performed. Tho disease for
which this operation was performed
wub cancer of the stomach, attended with
tho following symptoms; Tho apnotlto
is quito poor. Thcro is a peculiar indes
cribable distress in tho btomicli, a feel,
lug that has been described ns a faint
"all gone" sensation; a sticky slimo col.
lects about the teeth, especially in. tho
morning, accompanied by an unpleasant
taste. Food falls to satisfy this peculiar
faint sensation ; but, on tho contrary, it
nppears to aggravate tho feeling. Tho
eyes aro sunken, tinged with yellow; the
hands and feet becomo cold and sticky
a cold perspiration. The sufferers feel
tired all tho time, and sleep does not
seem to give rest, After a tlmo the pa-
tlcnt becomes nervous and Irrltablo,
gloomy, his mind filled with evil fore
bodings. When rising suddenly from
a recumbent position thcro is a dizziness,
a whistling sensation, and ho Is obliged
to grasp something firm to keep fiom
falling. Tho bowels costive, the skin
dry and hot nt limes; tho blood becom.
lug thick and stagnant, and docs not
circulate properly. After n tlmo tho
patient Bplts up food soon nflcr eating,
sometimes In n sour and fermented con
dition, sometimes Bwcctlsh to tho taste.
Oftentimes thcro is a palpitation of tho
heart, and tho patient fears he may havo
heart disease. Towards tho last tho
patient Is unable to retain any food
whatever, ns tho opening In tho lntcs.
lines becomes closed, or nearly So. Al
though this dlscaso Is Indeed alarming,
sufferers with tho above named symp
toms should not feel nervous, for nlno
hundred and nincty-nlno cases out or a
thousand have no cancer, but simply
dyspepsia, a dlscaso easily removed if
treated In a proper manner. Tho safest
and best remedy for tho dlscaso is

Dear Sir, I write to Inform you that
I havo derived great benefit from
"Seigel's Syrup." For some years I havo
suffered from liver complnlnt, with its
many and varied concomitant evils, so
that my lifo was a perpetual misery.
Twolvo months ago I "was Induced to try
Seigel's Syrup, nnd although rather
sceptical, having tried so many reputed
infallible remedies, I determined to give
It nt least a fair trial. In two or three
days I felt considerably better, and now
at tho end. of twclvo months (having
continued taking it) I am glad to say
that I am a different being altogether.
It is said of certain pens that they "come
as a boon nnd a blessing to men" and I
have no reason to doubt tho truthfulness
of the statement. 1 can truly say, how
ever, that Seigel's Byi up has come as a
"boon and a blessing" to mo. I havo re
commended It to several fellow-sufferers
from this distressing complaint, and
their testimony is quite in accordance
with my own. Grntitudo for tho benefit
I have derived from tho excellent pre
paratlon, prompts me to furnish you
with this unsolicited testimonial.
