TnSiamese Twins, it is stated, are^going over to Paris, with the intention^t of submitting to a surgical operation for^the severance of the ligament that unites^them- The twins have lived to the age^af M and have raised large families of^children. In the course of nature one of^this singular pair may die and his de^^cease would immediately prove fatal to^the survivor. To prevent this catastro-^phy the operation is suggested. Many^years ago, it is reported, the subject of^the effect of an operation was discussed^in Paris, and the opinions of the sur^^geons were by no means conclusive as to^the feasibility of severing the ligament^which is situated near the vital organs,^and has now developed into a hardened^structure. So many questions as to the^rer.[^onsibility of the operator, in case the^result should be fatal, may be started,^that it will be difficult to find a surgeon^who would run the risk of a criminal^prosecution.
