A SKILFUL SURGICAL OPERATION.
Tho American Ambnsador nt Vienna,

Government nu lntcicing account of a

this only uirolul operation of the
1:1ml ever pc-formed. The ilUe.iur- for
which thlj operation was pcrfoixied
was ennccrof the stomach, nttciuleil v t It
the following svmpluiiH: The appetite
is quite poor, 'l'hciu in a pcuillnr indes
cribable distress in the fclomicb, a feel

Iccts about the teeth, especially in the
morning, accompanied by mi unpleasant
taste. Pood fails to satisly tills peculiar
faint sensation; but, on the contrary, It
appears to aggravate the lccling. The
eyes arc sunken, tinned withycllow; tho
hands and feet become cold and sticky
a cold perspiration. The sufferers tcel
tired all the time, and sleep does not
seem to give rest. After a time the pa.
tient becomes nervous and irritable,
gloomy, his mind tilled with evil lore,
bodlngs. When rising suddenly fiom

a whistling sensation, and ho is obliged

patient spits up food boon after eating,
sometimes in ti sour and fermented con.

Oftentimes theie is a palpitation of the

heart disease. Towards tho last the
patient is unable to lotain any food
whatever, as tho opening iu the Intcs
tines becomes closed, or nearly so. Al
though this disease is indeed alarming,
MiflVicis with the above named symp.
toms should not feel nervous, for nine
hundred and ninety-nine cases out of a
thousand have no cancer, but simply
dyspepsia, a disease easily lemoved fi
treated in a proper manner. The safest
and best remedy for the disease is
Seigel's dilative SJvrup, a vegetable pre

cine vendors throughout the world, and

Dear Sir, I find the sale of Seigel's
Syrup steadily increasing. All who have
tried it speak" very highly of its medi

as a "God-send to dyspeptic people." I
always recommend it with confidence.

Dear Sir, I write to inform" you that
1 have derived ureal benefit from
"Seigel's Syrup." Forborne years I have
suffered from liver complaint, with its
many and vmied concomitant evils, so
that my life was a peipctunl misery.
Twelvemonths ago i was induced to try
Seigel's, Syrup, and although rather
sceptical, having tried so many lepuled
infallible remedies, I determined to give
it at least a fair trial. Jn two or three
daya 1 felt considerably belter, and now
at thu end of twelve months (having
continued taking it) I am glad to say
that I am a different being altogether.
It isfsaid of ceilniii pens that they "come
as a boon nud a blessing to men" and I
have uo reason to doubt' the truthfulness
of the statement. 1 can truly say, how
ever, that Seigel's Syrup lias come as a
"boon and a blessing" to me. I have ie
commended il to sovcral fellow-sufferers
from this disliessing complaint, and
their testimony is quito in accordance
"with my own. Oiatiludu for the benefit
I have derived from the excellent pre.
paration, prompts mo to furnish you
with tills unsolicited testimonial.
I am dear Sir, k
Yours ever gratefully,'

and iio added, "one of these bottles I
am sending fifteen miles away to a friend
who is very ill. I have much fath in it."
The salo keeps up wonderfully, In fact,

MONDAYrXuNE 1, 1886.
"Turn out thu gas," suld n nulu
rnllit, "niul 1 Trill show yon tbc
latest thing In light that is," ho
milled, "the latost thing in that line
in Uriltsh Columbia."
As the gas went out tho speaker
itnvollcil several objects that hail an
"ancient anil flsh-liko smell," anil
striking a match touched one. A
moment Inter a clear, yellow light
appeared, issuing from what looked
like the mouth of ft flib, the canillo
end of which was thrust into a large
"Yes," said the naturalist, " it is
a fish, and nothing else, no tube nor
oil within, only the fiih Just as it
came from the water. Take this
paper and read ft line and become
one of the very few who can boast
that they have read by the light of
a dead herring."
The light was found equal to that
of a candle, and reading by fish
light was an easy matter.
"It is curious," resumed tho stu
dent of naturo, "but I have got so
that if I should wee man uoo hiin
solf as a candle I shouldn't bo much
surprised. The use of a fish as a
candle I first observed when on the
north shore of British Columbia.
I made a trip all through the coun
tiy for the purpose of obtaining a
skeleton of the rare rhytnai that was
killed off about a hundred years ago,
and I ran across somo other curious
things well worth knowing. I had
lived in an Indian Tillage nearly c
weekbcfoiel heard anything about
the candle-fish, and ono beautiful
moonlight night I was Btanding on
tho beach, when I flaw something
that appeared exactly like the reflec
tion of the moon, only it was in the
wrong direction. I called the atten
tion of a native to it, and it seemed
to throw him inle the greatest ex
citement. He cried out 'Eula
chon!' as hard as he could, and
in a few minutes fifteen men were
on the ihoro launching their
canoes. There was so much confu-.
sion that I couldn't learn what was
the mutter ; go I jumped into ono
of the boats and off we went. There
were tvro men in each of thd canoes
but ours. One sat in the stern and
paddled, while the other fitood in
the bow with a cnrious-looking in
strument in his hand that I had not
seen before. It looked like an enor
mous rake or comb, made of a piece
of pine at least eight feet long with
a hole for a hand grip At the top,
the lower part thinniug off to an
edge into which were driven sharp
iron or bone teeth, from three to four
inches apart. Tho use was soon
evident ; it was an arrangement for
fishing. The ripple I had noticed
on the water was an enormous school
of fish called by the natives 'Eula
chon,' and to surround them now
seemed to be the chief object.
"The canoes were swiftly paddled
out until they were all upon the
outside of the fish and then they
ruBhed at them full speed, each man
wielding hi3 comb like a sco9p ; dash
ing it into the sparkling mass of fish
that gleamed like silver, and nt every
stroke so thick were they that the
teeth of the comb came up covered
with impaled fishes. These were
quickly jerked into the boats and
another dash made, and so on, until
finally the school was driven in.ehore,
and the excited natives leaped into
the water and fairly scooped them
into their canoes, where their vivid
phosphorescenco made them look
like molten silver. The fish seemed
so terrified and demoralized that
they hugged tho shore, and if the
men had had a net instead of those
outlandish comb3 they could' hnv(e
captured millions where, they only
took thousands. Thci boats were
rapidly filled, however, and in 'an
hour tho excitement was over, and
tho canoes were, hauled upon the
beach by the exhausted fishermen.
Tho next morning early the boats
were emptied on the- beach, and' the
catch was handed over to'thosquaws,
who took' the entire matter of curing
in hand. They seated themselves
about their respective piles, and
taking sticks pointed at the ends
rapidly strung the fish upon them by
piercing them through the eyes.
Then they were taken by children
and' placed in the smoke at the
top of their sheds. There was no
cleaning or scaling. When thorough
ly dried' the ilslr hare a flavor of
wooitsmoKo. xuoy arc packeit in
large, flails made of cedar bark and
rushesof various' kinds. They are
then stowed away on a scaffolding
made of high poles, and arc not
touched, until cold weather. The
natives" called, them in our tongue
candlo fish, asi they- not only eat
them but use them to burn, as I
have shown you. Previous to this
catch I had no light, but afterward I
luxuriated in a candlo every night,
and wrolo my reports and took my
notes all by the light of the 'Eula
chon.' Tho little fish seems fairly
Tjubbling over with oil ; bo much so
that I tried to fry one, and, turning
away for a few moments, I returned
to' find the back and other bones
jump.ing)around iwa lotioftfit. The
fish hadfmelted.. The oil' ism'sed-'as
a modlciuo ; if keeps them warm
as a fuel, gives Ihcm lighl, and the
llosh is rt rich food in its dried slate.
Vi'hcn Urn fish aro onlcn tho bonc
arc swallowed. When they bum
llieni they lake a pointed slick, in
sert it in tho ground and mnko a slit
in thu other end, into which they
stick the fish and light it. There is
no trimming or smoking, aud when
the light i9 no longer needed It is
blown out and the remainder of the
fish eaten. Sometimes the fish aro
very abundant, and the surplus is
all made into oil that is used for a
variety of purposes by tho natives.
What do they slow "it in? Well,
Nature again comes to the rescue,
and they go to the ocean for their
bottles as well as their oil. One of
the greatest seawcedi that grows off
the coast has a hollow stalk that is
about aa largo us a champagne
bottle; these Rio cut in lengths
holding three pints or more, and
filled with oil. The candle-fish is
allied to the smelt, and is known
scientifically as the Mallotun Pacic
cu3, suil in former days was found
in the vicinity of British Columbia
in vast numbers. The mouth oi tho
ColumbiR river ie said to have been
a l'amoua place for them, but the
great factories and the steamers
have gradually driven thcra off,
sothat there are only a few places,
comparatively speaking, where great
nutnbera can be found.
" There is only one thing iu the
way of fish that I have over seen to
beat tlu3," added the traveler, lift
ing up the curious candle and waving
it about, showing that it was almost
impossible to put it ont, " unci that
was in Africa, ..where they used a
live fish as a doctor. I first observed
tliis peculiar cure practised on the
Old Malabar river, where I went
eoveral years ago on a collecting
tour. I was awakened one night by
groans and cries, and got up to find
that child in the adjoining hut hud
been taken sick. Upon going in to
see if I could do anj tiling, 1 found
the woman filling a great basin with
water, in which was placed a catfish,
the one we know Malapterus
Electrieus which they took from a
gourd that served as an aquarium.
Into the water the child was iorced.
Then it wae made to pick up the
fish. That it received a shock was
evident, as it dropped tho fish and
screamed all the louder. But the
woman made it take hold of it again.
Whether it did any good or not I am
unable to say; anyhow, the child
stopped crying and seemed better ;
nerhaps the fish benumbed it."
"Then it was electric?" said tho
"Certainly," was the reply. "It
was the electric catfish, common in
African rivers. When first taken
they give quito a powerful ehock.
The next morning I made some in
quiriefc and found that the catfish
was a sort of African soothing syrup
given babies quito regularly, and to
any ona else who happened to need
a dose. As soon as a native child
began to complain a tub was brought
out and several of the fish caught,
if they were not on hand, and the
child was made to get in and play
with the fish. Not only do they do
it to cure tho sick, but in some tribes
the mothers, when washing their in
fants in the morning, invariably
made them take a shock by touching
the fish; this, they said, made the
babe grow to a strong man. The
children, however, strongly objected
to it, and the yelling and squalling
when the fishes were brought out
were appalling. The children are
also made to drink the water, and
finally the electric fish is eaten ; so
that the remedy is a veritable cure
all, and can be taken ex'ternfilly or
internally as the case maybe.'' iV.
