According to his disclosure the af

suffering is not of recent appearance,
as officially proclaimed, but has af
fected the patient since his boyhood.
I t made its appearance first when the
present emperor, then the eldest son
of Crown Prince Frederick, was at
tending the university at Bonn, in
1ST9. A n operation was undertaken
at this time which temporarily re

Disease I s Recurrent.
I n the next ten years the young
prince suffer ed repeatedly from a re

his accession to the throne a second
operation was performed, which re
sulted in another temporary relief.
Two months ago another operation
was undertaken, but was kept secret
in the hope that the emperor would
recover sufficiently to avoid public
dissemination of the news of his con
dition. This operation was not as
successful as the previous ones, and
was followed, Nov. , by a fourth,
concerning which meager information
has been allowed to reach the public.

by Mr. Pigeon is to the effect that

there is the description of Debfalls

with that given of Carlisle by the peo
