The Terrible Process to which a Young "Man Submit toil Himself Hoping for the Successful Removal ofa Tu mor which Prored to Hae Had it- Ramifications n the Brain History of the Case Lec ture by Dr. Kcbuppcrt The Bloody Scene of the Operation In Pres ence of a Large Audience ( st Fini; U est Mol t." The New Orleans Picayune gives the fol lowing thrilling description of one of the most difficult operations known in surgery, and which, iu this ease as in many others, proved fatal. The account is as follows: About 1 0 -o'clock on the twentieth instant, the amphitheater of the medical school being tiiri.nged with members of the medical fra ternity and all preparations completed, the subject was admitted. He came into the pit looking not the least alarmed. He was a voting man of about eighteen yearn of age, tail, well formed, with regular, prepossessing feature, large dark hazel eyes and dark hair. But for a swelling of the right aide of the face anil a jirotrusion of the ball of the right eye one would have said that he was in per fect health. He jumped actively upon the sable couch and bared hit body to the waist. r. M. Schuppert placed one hand upon the i:T hi- otiHilAtfe remarks. ilivested a. far as possible of technicar"tefUlB" not familiar to the general reader, were in sntmtanoe as follow : The boy, Joseph Alten berg, was born in Alabama, but came recent ly from Natchez, Mississippi. He was seven teen yean of age, of a powerful frame, and had never been sick except from chills and fever. HISTORY OF THE CADE. About May he observed the commence ment of a swelling of the right cheek. An achinir uain having set in, which he mistook for toothache, induced him to apply to Amtif who extracted the second molar tooth, which was found apparently healthy The pain continued for three weeks after ward. About one month after the commence ment of the tumor theeyc-ball began to pro trude, and his cye-eigHt was so affected that he could not perceive objects, but could dis tinguish night from day. He also suffered from attacks of bleeding from the nose. The tumor seemed, also, to vary in size from time to time, and whenever he was excited or ex erted himself, the patient felt a throbbing sensation in the tumor. When Dr. .Schuppert first met the patient he observed near the en trance to the right nostril a polypus-lite tumor, which afterward disappeared, but the nostril was finally so obstructed that the fat ieiit could breathe only through his mouth, le never complained of headache. He was examined by several physicians in Natchez, who advised tilm to go to New Orleans. The comparatively slow growth of the tumor, the total absence of swelling in the sub-maxillary glands, the healthy appearance of the cutis, the age, hereditary- register and absence of any cause for suspicion indicated that the tumor was not of a malignant character. Dr. Schuppert then went outo state' the necessity for the removal of the growth, which would ultimatelv destrov me. j le explained how tumors ramify and climb aooot the cavities of the head, adhering to the hones, filling up vacant -paces with their lobes, crawling through the smallest aperture in the bones and sometimes penetrating to the brain itself. The dangers of the operation and the diffi culties to be encountered were set forth. Dr, Schuppert referred to the history of the op eration he waa about to attempt, tr had been Dnned for the first time, by Drs. Lamren , of Berlin, in lbbl, afterward hy bimon, its connections with the International, Texas Pacific, and East Line roads here, and that it will command, when it reaches Jefferson, a connection with the entire network tot Texas railroads. It supplements this with two fine leading editorials: one pub lished in the Appeal of October 7, 1872, advocating the construction of a road to Texas, showing its advantage?, aud the loss that will follow if the opportunity is neglected of pushing the en terprise forward, aud the other editorial is in reference to the present movement. The first editorial is like a prophecy. The second is truthful, direct and convincing. If that number of the Appeal, with what has al ready been said, does not wake up, not only Memphis, but the entire Ohio valley, we are mistaken. It is of as much interest to that entire district of country, to Charleston and New York, as it is to Memphis itself. It is a great thing for a city to have an intelligent, enterprising, industrious press. This road will he a great boom to Memphis. It will be worth to her 'more than all other roads sne has now or ever will get in the future. It will make it a city indeed. Memphis de serves such good fortune, and Texas will hail the connection with joy. A GOOD MAN 00NE. A fsanntlaic I.lnfc Between the Revo lutionary' Em and Oar Own Finn s A. Pioneer af Pontotoc.

Dr. Schuppert later on observed that Alteuberg had tK-en lullv advised ol the dangers at tending the operation. On Sunday he had asked that the attempt be made. "What if we find the tumor has entered the skull?' said the doctor. "Well, it can't be helped, re plied the boy : "I will die anyhow, and I would feel so much relieved if you could take it out. A BLOODY SCENE. And so the question was resolved upon. It wao a (jues:ion of life or death. Truly the sword of Damocles hung over Joseph Alten- iH-rir. lint tie was more com nosed than the cir cle around him. At length the proceedings open. A napkin, saturated with chloroform is applied to the patient s mouth, and pres ently he became unconscious. Dr. Schup pert glances at his instruments to see that they are in proper position. His experienced assistants take their places. With his scalpel the operator rapidly makes an incision ex tending from the lobe of the ear to the nose. cutting down to the boue.. The blood gushes lortn ireeiy, nut is speedily wiped awav Another incision is made just beneath the eye, and running from ear to nose. Here are many small arteries and nerves. These two deep gashes meeting at the temple em brace the superior maxillary or cheek Ixme, behind which, in the cavity below the orbit of the eye, is the tumor. The cheek bone must be removed. The surgeou coutinucs to Sly his knife with the assurance and elicacy of manipulation that come of accurate knowledge and experience.

Frequently the boy groans, strug gles on the couch while blood wells out over h aprons, sleeves and nana are dyed red, A half hour has passed, oui me climax nas not arrived, the excision of the bone 1s the next step, and now the dental saw, the little machine with the ser rated disk, comes into play. The circle of the steel revolves with am axing rapidity and cuts through the thin plate of the upper maxillary. The thick orbital bone requires the Use of the chisel. It is severed. The operator grasps his pincers and pliers and tuo physicians around press toward the coach. Among them one observes Dr. Koaldes, the house surgeon of the hospital, Dr. Le Munier, Dr. Souchon, the latter soon to perform a similar operation. MoiWCbJoro forni is administered and the bone is raised with the covering of flesh and laid back so a to lie upon the nose. The resting place of the tumor is revealed. It tills the en tire cavity with its tough, lobulated mass, from which the blood spurts as it is detached from its fastenings and drawn forth with the pincers. For the first time Dr. Schuppert seems anxious. Another handful of bloody, tumid desk is sunsoved, torn from its sinus behind the eye. The . bloody cavity it carer1 fully inspected; the surgeon searches nlm linger and instrument and looks very grave. "Poor boy," he savs, as if -peaking to him self, "the tumor - has spread to the brain." Some of the physicians standing around shool. their heads as if to signify that It was all over. They understood lr. Schuppert' words. c'est rvrt. It was now an hour sine, 'he operation had coiinnrnccd. The patient cuinined entirely unctitiseioUK, but struggled tone times to free his throat of the blood thai poured into it. He had becofce much weaker. The ruddy glow hail left his cheeks, aad a pallor aa of death spread over his face and bare chest, seeming whiter and paler hy contrast with the spots and streams of blood. Chloroform was no longer employed, but brandy was ad ministered. The doctor sought mi more for the branches of the dreadful tumor; he saw that a branch had thrust itself up through an ounce into me brain. To dislodge it would bo fatal; to have it there meant death. The surgeon hud approached the entrance to the region of the brain; he could go no fur ther. Skill, sensnee, experience ax ailed nothing. The sword of Damocles had fallen. Carefully the blood was wiped from the yawning wound in the face, the bone was replaced, and the suture made, joining the crimson lips of the gashes together. "Poor boy," again murmured the surgeon. looking tnroiigli Ills spectacle at the gasping form before him, "he little thought this would prove hi last day. The physicians near at baud looked fur their hats; one examined his watch, to see if it was his dinner hour; another pulled out a letter, which he commenced to read.

Mr. Daggett was born in New Haven, Connecticut, July 1, A. D. 1798. He was descended from a long line of illustrious ancestors. Ihe hrst in America IAaeon John Uagirett, who came over with Captain Winthrou's company! A. D. 1(530 Ills grand lather, Kev. aphtali nagged, u. D., was the fifth president of Yale college. He presided over the university about eleven years, and held the omce ol prolessor ol di vinity twenty-tive years. When the tsntish army invaved lew tiaven tnis venerable theologian shouldered his towliug-piecc, mounted his horse and marched with the students and citizens to repel the invader. He was wounded and captured and after- ard died from "the effects of his wounds and harsh treatment while a prisoner of war. His son Henrv Daggett, father of Stephen Daggett, was a lieutenant and brevet captain in the revolutionary army, and served his country wkh distinction until the close of the war. through his mother, whose maiden name was Anna Ball, Mr. Daggett was re lated to General George Washington, whose mother was named Mary Ball. Another member of the family, Hon. David Daggett, L.L. D., filled the silion ot prolessor ol law in college, United Stales senator and chief jus tice of the supreme court of Connecticut. From the landing of the Pilgrims to the pres ent time this family have been distinguished a theologians, scientists, senators and jurists. There is scarcely a position of trust and honor in the New England States that has not been tilled by some member of the Dag- fett family. In the year 1818, Mr. Stephen laggett, who was a student at Yale college, left ou account of his lungs being affected, and, emigrating south, located at Charleston, South Carolina.- From thence, in 1824, he went to Mobile, Alabama. . In Mav, 1827, he came up the Tombigbeo river to Cotton (iin u. ... : tlw. rkiil,iIOtf v-.r'..., i.-i,..-.: X I'll, ,11. 11 III ,IV V. 1111. K 11 U,IUU.

Stewart, then the 1 resuyteriau missionary to the ( hickasaw Indians, who still survives his i iid friend, and, though enfeebled with age, wits able to take part in the funeral services. In May, 1835, he moved to Pontotoc countv, and in November, 1837, he settled at his residence five miles south of Pontotoc, where he remained until his death. His early life was occupied ii mercantile pursuits; but, after settling on hi plantation, in 1837, his energies were devoted to agriculture. Being a man of practical mind, steady business habits and unswerving integrity, he accumulated a handsome estate, and at the breaking out of the war, in 1861, he was accounted one of the wealthiest men in Pontotoc countv. His property, like that of all southern planters, was much reduced by the results ol the war. He was a kind and indulgent master, and such was the attach ment of his old servants that manv of them never left him, and as tenants still occupy his lands, and with tearlul eves and sorrow ing hearts bitterly lament the loss of their kind old master. Mr. Daggett was truly a man of peace, and, although he avoided poli tical strife, he was a man of influence in soci ety, and actively engaged in every public en terprise calculated to benefit his country. He was present with General Cofcc,aud signed his name as a witness to the treaty with the Chickasaw Indians, Octobor 20, 1832. He was an intimate friend and confidential ad viser of the great chief. Itawamba, idiot Major Levi Colbert, and is still remembered by the Chickasaws who survive the exodus from Mississippi. He always toook an ac tive interest in promoting public schools, and was for many years a trustee of the Chickasaw female college, at Pontotoc. In 1842, Mr. Daggett made a profession of religion and joined the Methodist Episcopal church, since which time he has been a zealous and con sistent metuW, having tilled the of lice of Steward for twenty-five years. The loss of such a man is irreparable to the church and to the community iu which he lived. He leaves a widow, one son and three daughters to mourn his loss. . A FORGED CHECK Milford. Michiean. special to the St. Paul Pioneer Pre): Among the letters left by the late Mrs. Harris, who claimed to be the author of Rutledqe, and whose death has occa sioned so much newspaper comment, was one signed bv initials onlv, which was marked on me ouisioe wiui return to oox oo, auuoru. Michigan, if not delivered in ten days." This was written instead of printed on the envelope and of itself furnished but little clue to the possible writer. Colonel Allen, proprietor of the Merchants hotel, where the lady died, tele graphed to Milford to find the ownerof box 86. Some miscarriage occurred here, however, and for a day or two nothing was heard from Milford. It finally came to the knowledge of Colonel Allen that a man named Teeter owned the box, and he was telegraphed to. His reply was sent by mail and has not yet been published. To obviate delay and get at the facts vour reporter visited Mr. leeter to day and learned that he was Mrs. Harris': brother, Charles A. Teeter. He is a drayman in thweitv. There is nothing in the world about his appearance to indicate that he is in anv way related to a lady whoee peculiar ity is writing novels under another woman's name, or driving fast horse. Mr. Teeter, when questioned in reference to the dead ladv. was extremely reticent at first, but after talking with him a short time he said he was her brother and that he had written to St. Paul to FIND OUT FURTHER PARTICULARS. "What are the circumstances which led vou to suDuose that she was your sister?" "I haven't anything to say about the case," replied Mr. Teeter, in a melancholy way. "I dont care to have this to get into any of the papers." "What was your sister's full name?" "That doesn't make any difference." "I have particulars so far as known, taken from the St. Paul papers, in my pocket. Would vou like to look at them?" o, 1 don t care anything about titem. I'm pretty sure she is mv sister.

After the war Colo nel Augamar was prominent in the affairs of Louisiana, and was the agent of the Mate to represent its interests before congress for se curing the government guarantee of its levee bonds. In this attempt he was successful. but a change of politics in the State prevent ed the realization of the scheme. During the time he represented his State he was the guest of many of the most prominent and in fluential financiers of the north. It is said that it was through Colonel A tigamar's influ ence with President Johnson that General Hancock w&j sent to Louisiana as military rovernor. Colonel Augamar had recently ?n engaged in the utilization of steam for city surface and elevated roads, in which he was entirely successful. He was highly es teemed by a wide circle of friends, by whom his loss will be deeply felt. OAKEN AMES'S MONUMENT. Fulmer, Burton & Co If Garfield In not a J.i.ir and.

"She was tortv-eigtit. l don t Know tnat i have anything; further to say about the matter." MRS. TEETER INTERVIEWED. Thinking he was too busy then to talk, the reporter ascertained where he lived, and in terviewed Mrs. Teeter on the subject. Mrs. Teeter was not nearly so reticent as her hus band, and told what she knew of the case. From the particulars learned the identity of the dead lady is established. She was of an erratic disposition, and had not lived in Michi gan for many years. She had been known to the public as Mrs. S. B. Harris, though her real name was Van Vliet, which name she had acquired bv marriage somewhere west. She subsequently separated from her hus band. She had written a great deal for maga zines, always under the name of Mrs. Harris or Marian Cole Harris. Mrs. Teeter knew of no other ladv of that name, though there might be one, and, as to the authorship of R'ltledge and other works, Mrs. leeter said her sister had been away so much, and had been seen by her so little, that she could Bay nothing; definite. She only knew that her sister-in-law did a great deal of literary work. She could not say anything as to her love for fast driving. They did not intend to have her remains moved to this State. She miuht have had some property, but Mrs Teeter did not know about that. They cor responded but little, and Mrs. Harris, as they called her, had little in common with them. She moved about from place to place in the west considerably. She always took care of herself, autl trom what they could learn, en joyed herself and Jived a respectable life. Did Mrs. Harris have any eccentricities or monomanias?" asked the reporer. Mrs. Teeter replied that she could not say as to thai . She had a sister living near Milford, married, and Mr. Teeter and this married sister were the only near relatives that she knew of her having-, bhe had been at Hud son, Wisconsin, and the last they heard from her before the accident she was at St. f aul MORE CORRESPONDENCE. The following letter was written to George W. Carleton, the New lork publisher, by Mrs. Spencer, of Hudson, Wisconsin, who had become suspicious of the pretensions of the alleged Mrs. Harris. Mr. Carleton, in stead of answering, sent the letter to the true Mrs. Harris. The latter remained silent un til after the death and exposure of the ad venturess in St. Paul.

New York World (editorial): The sons of the late lakes Ames left this city, if we are not misinformed, on Saturday last to take part in the ceremony of laying the corner stone of an imposing monument which is to be erected to the memory of their father in the town of Sherman, on the line of the Union Pacific railway in Wyoming Territo- l his monument is to be put up at a great cost, and it is to stand on one of the highest inhabited points in the Union, more than 8000 feet above the level of the sea. What inscriptions are the coming generations of the American people to read upon its en during granite front? If the man nominated by the Kepublican party tor the presidency is a truthful man, this monument which in some sort will dominate the continent is to be erected to a perjurer. Can the sons of Oakes Ames permit this pile, intended to commemorate their father's energy and en terprise in the sight of all men, to become i historic pillory in which his name shall be set as a hissing and reproach In all time to come.' lhev can prevent this in but one way. They must prove upon General Gar field himself the shame which has been put by General Garfield on their dead father. or the monument i hey arc about to erect will but make their name odious in years to come. There is no escape for them from this necessity. Either Oakes Ames died t perjurer or James A. Garfield lives a per jurer. Consider the facts: December 17 187z, Uakes Ames testified (p. 3 ot testi mony in credit mobilier case): "I will now speak of the transactions With the individ uals named in the letter produced bv Mr " M'Comb in his testimony" "as to Mr. Garfield (p. 21), I agreed to get ten thare of Morh for Aim and hold it until he txmld pay for iL January 14, 18 a, Lieneral liarheld, knowing that the above statement had been made by Oakes Ames, testified: " " owiietl. received or aqreed to receive anv stock of the credi '. mobilier or Union J acitic ItaWSSM nor any dividend or profito arising from either of them." January 22, 1873, be ing eight days after this testimony was given by Ueneral Uarheld, uaues Ames testi Bed again as toftows, in reply to a ques tion as to when he made his agreement with liarheld (testimony p. 'Mo): that agree ment was in December, 1807, or in Jan uary. 1868 about that time about the u time I had these conversations with all of " them." "In Jme I receiced licidend in cusi on hix Garfield's sfoci " Si00, which left a balance due him of $32!) " trhich I vaid him.'' One of two propositions, it will be seen, must be admitted. Either the living General Garfield swore falsely when he testified that he never "m-ned, re ceived, or agreed lo receice any stock of the credit mobilier or the Union Pacific railroad, or Oakes Ames swore falsely when he testi fied that he "aqreed to get ten nhares of dock for Garfield, and that he " reetired a dividend in ctixh " on General Garfield s stock, and that he paid General Garfield a balance due him out of that dividend, rjt -Secretary Fish, Mr. John Jay and other Republicans of eminence have loudly proclaimed their belief that General Garfield swore to the truth. Of course this carries with it a dec titration that they believe Oakes Ames to have sworn falselv. They are men of re spectability as well as oi eminence, but. unfortunately, like Judge Swayne, they have damaged the value of their testimony by admitting that they have never investi gated the case.

ANOTHER LETTER OF INQflRY The following letter was received bv the postmaster of St. Paul yesterday Iin i.-1-ai k, September 22, 1830. Postmaster, st.

The picture has been recognized by the peo ple at the Merchants hotel as that ot the lady who died there from the dent. THE WOMAN IN WISCONSIN To the Editoh of the Pioneer -Press In yester day's issue of the Ploueer-Press you note that 'Mr. Harris" was at Eau Claire, August 30til. We think her Ideutical with a lady who arrived here August 3Uth. registering as Mrs. S. T. Hunt, Chi cago. She remained here nve days, when we sud denly miKsed her. before uight. however, seceive-l a telegram from Menominee. Wisconsin, asking us to remove her l-sggage from room to office, charge her with five ds'-s hoard, and she would be back the next day. We uext heard from her by letter from St. Paul, asking us to send her baggage to her there, C.O.D. We did not get return until Sej-teml-crsth. During her stay here she told the ladies of the house that she was an authoress. She received aud wroteuuito a uuinborof letters while here, and allowed u a cabinet phoUgrnph of her son which bore his signature. It was from some towa in this State which we do not remember. She was entirely alone here, though she told that her two so us, daughter and ladv friend were to join her ben-, she had a revolver while here, and sliowed the fitls how she would Use It If she knew suy one was looking through ihe keyhole. 1 write the case, but who was consulted in a positively penitential way by General Garfield as to the case, has just stated in a remarkable letter published bv the florid on Saturday last that Oakes Ames ' swore truly and that General Garfield swore falsely. . Judge Black, how ever, believes that, while General Garfield swore falsely as to his connections with Oakes Ames, he swore truly as to his ignorance of the meaning of that connection. This is a puzzling position which Judge Black takes, but, so far the sons of Oakes Ames are con cerned, Jndge Black at least puts their father in the right on the issue of perjury as to the facts of the transaction between Gar field and their father. Can they put their father in the right on the issue of periurv as to the significance of the transaction between Garfield and their father? If so, they have no time to lose in doing it. "Gen eral Garfield," says Judge Black, "though he certainly agreed to take the stock and did ac tually take dividends on it, had no suspicion of its connection with the Union Pacific rail road or of the conflict which its possession might create between his private interests nd his public duty." In other words Oakes Ames first bribed General Garfield without General Garfield's knowledge, and then Oen- eral Garfield swore he had not received what he had in fact received from Oakes Ames. Oakes Ames swore that General Garfield knew he was bribed when he took the bribe. Can the sons of Oakes Ames prove this? A Land Operator Arrested. Chicago, September 29. The Tribune' Omaha special says that an important arrest was made to-day of Frank Beirono, formerly the land agent of the Burlington and Mis souri railroad, who defrauded a large num ber of people in Michigan and other States bv selling them worthless railroad land cer tificates.
