Dr. Thoipson coeic here to prac
tice his profession about seven years
ago from ithe eastern part of the comi
ty. He was an ;able man and very
popular personally and so devoted to
his work that lie became a slave to
it and, through laboring night and
day to keep up with his large prae
tiec, lie began to resort to stimulat
ing drugS to keep up lis strength and
this led to his final undoing.. lHe was
a friend to all and could never say
no to a supplicat-ing hand.
It is a well know fact that he
would not only attend professional
ly, but actually nurse the poorest
patient with the same care and at
tention. that lie would give his wealth
iest patient, even neglecting the lat
ter if necessary.
The deceased was 29 years of age
and was a Mason, Odd Fellow, Knight
of Pythias and Woodman. He was
married about four years ago to Miss
Effie Culp, a daughter of the late T.
G. Culp, and she has been a constant
and faithful helpmate to him in his
work, and now, in her hour of saddest
bereavement, the hearts of the entire
community go out to her as one in
their feelings of deepest sympathy.
The funeral services were held
here this afternoon at 4.30 o'clock.
MYSTERY OF A LOST DIAMOND.
Valuable Gem Sewed Up in a Man's

St. Louis Republie.
Thomas Radius of Curvedale, has
never been a man of means, and up
to last week was never worth more
than $50 at any time.
Last. week, however, it was some
what different. He had been ailing
for sonic time aid a month ago lie
wAis taken down with appendicitis
and became sick th.r, an operation
was determined upon to relieve him.
He had no means and was under the
care of City Physician Dinyineeter

performed Dr. V. V. Pereneas, an
eminent physician of New York, and
a cousin of Dr. Diaymeceter, was pay
ing'the latter a visit and volunteered
to aid in the surgical work, not, how
ever, tkaing the prominent part in it.
Radius was insane at the time, and
had very poor surroundings for so
delicate a piece of work, but the oper
ation was carried through sucessfully
in spite of difficulties, the appendix
was removed, and the patient immed
intely improved and soon recovered.
But to the v,cry great embarrass
meti of both doctors the operation
was no sooner completed t.han Dr.
Pereieas missed a4 ar-e and beaitiful
dianond setting out of a ring which
he wore, and, after making a long
and careful search for it. they came
to the Conlusioln that, possibly, it
had dropped when the appendix was
being taken out and had later been
sewed up in him.
Nothing could be done about it,
hIowover, untill his health was restor
ed so that lie ini-it be exaiilled by
means of X-rays, and thenl, inideed,
it was shown that the solution of the
mystery in regard to the disappear
ance of the diamond had been founld,
for the jewel was clearly shown to be
located and eneysted in his body close
to the point where the useless and
dangerouse apperdix had been cut
Dr. Pereneas was most delighted
when this discovery was made, for,
to say nothing of the instrinsie value
of the stone, which was $3,000 it was
an heirloom in his family, and very
highly prized by him for this reason.
He at once sui-ested that alother be
perforied, offering to stand all the
expense thereof and to pay $100 in
Addition for the pain and discomfort,
but lie soon found that. lie was up
against a new and serious proposition
for the thought that lie had a dia
mond in his insides was a very inter
esting one to Radius and lie promptly
refused to be operated upon at all
UieSS he W'ere paid the sum of $2,
000 for the privilege lie thius accord
ed to the eastern doctor.
This seemed a reguiar outrage to
most people, but Radius eared noth
ing at all for public opinion and held
out stubbornly for his price. Law
yers were consulted, and they decid
ed that an operation could not be
performed, even under a writ of re
plevin, and the diamon:d levied upon
under the writ by the sheriff, with
tile aid of a surgeon; that the con
stitutional guaranties upheld him in
retaining the jewel in his abdominal
cavity if he saw fit to 'Jo so.
There was, therefore, nothing for
