ACCIDENTS IN SURGERY.
Psnfessiona of One of Germany’* Moat Eminent Practitioner#. A clever surgeon may often attain Wonderful results through a single >peration; occasionally a disease of many years’ standing disappears at »ne stroke, and the subject is “new made o’er again;” the skilled operator getting, very properly, all the credit for the remarkable cure. It is not less true, however, that accidents some times occur during operations, in spite of all the care of the practitioner, which almost drive him to despair, and not infrequently prove fatal to the patient. You seldom hear of such cases, for naturally gentlemen of the profession do not care to mention them. Prof. VonXusshaum, of Munich, the celebrated surgeon, is therefore entitled to commendation for his can dor in publishing an interesting article entitled “Accidents in Surgery,” in which he relates his own experience and that of soni'? of some of his fellow practitioners. What strange things will happen in the operating room! It has more than once occurred that the wrong tooth has been extracted, especially when the patient was chloroformed and could not be questioned again at the time. Once, however, a man at the hospital had the wrong leg taken off. It happened in this way. A patient with both his feet bandaged was laid on the operating table. Both legs wefe diseased; the right one was considered curable, but the left had to be amputated, as it was supposed to be past healing. Unfor tunately, they amputated the right leg, and did not discover their mistake until after the operation, when every effort was made to save the left leg— the worst of the two—and with success. In modeling artificial noses from por tions of the skin cut from the forehead (rhinoplastic) it sometimes occurs that, after the healing process, a part of the new organ mortifies, or that the noble features collapses into a shape less lump and leans over to one side. During an operation on the glands in the throat, Nussbaum's lance broke against a hard substance in the center of the gland, and the patient swallowed the broken piece, which was about an inch long. To prevent the sharp steel causing laceration of the stomach and intestines, the doctor made the patient swallow a glass of sugar and water containing a tablespoonful of diluted muriatic acid, and in forty-eight hours the piece of steel passed without any trouble and was foifcd to be black, rusty and blunt, owing to the effect of the acid. False teeth are often swallowed inadvert ently* Prof. Nussbaum mentions a case where a woman swallowed a plate with five teeth which stuck firm ly in her gullet, and could neither be moved up nor down. As she felt no pain and was able to eat and drink, speak and breathe without difficulty, Nussbaum advised her to dispense with an operation. And now the lady has had the swallowed set of teeth in her throat for nearly two years. Nussbaum calls it an “accident” when a surgeon, in performing a diffi cult operation, leaves in the body a piece of sponge, or a pair of pincers, or a piece of india-rubber tubing, thereby causing the patient's death through blood-poisoning, and there fore recommends the practice of count ing all instruments, sponges, etc., both before and after the operation, by way of a check, for then you can easily as certain whether you have forgotten to take out something or not. When chloroform was first applied, patients frequently died under the operation. At present, the deaths average one in twelve thousand in cases of chloro form treatment. The professor closes his article by stating doctors can learn more from an unfortunate case than from ten lucky operations, and that’s a comfort.—Berliner Volkszeitung. ALL AROUND TRAINING. The Dependence of Intellect and Charac ter on Physical Health. Wo are beginning to find out, through the teachings of science,how dependent are both intellect and character upon physical health. Educators are ceas ing to'expect good results from stimu lating the young mind at the expense of the body. The feeble frame and the pallid cheek are no longer supposed to be favorable to fine mental acquire ments, or to moral and religious de velopment Yet we still have much to learn in this matter. Day by day we are proving how dependent we are upon sound health and vigor, not only for our happiness, but for our useful ness in the world. But the necessary care, training and self-discipline to ob tain this boon, are very far from oc cupying the high place in our thoughts and hearts which they deserve. To disobey the laws of our physical na ture is too often condoned when it should be severely censured, simply because men do not appreciate how largely it enters into and influences for evil both the mental powers and the moral character. So with the intel lect; its efficiency extends far beyond what we call the mind itself. It en lightens mankind as to the best ways of living; it teaches him how to take care of that body which must be kept healthy, and that character which must be kept pure. It would, indeed, be far better if in all educational sys tems this enlargement of the province of the mind were more fully provided for. It may be that our present cur riculum pays too exclusive attention . to mental discipline and too little to the results to be attained. It is good to have a tool well made, finely, tem pered and sharpened to keenness; but it is also good to see that that tool is Used skillfully and applied to its legit imate purposes. The well-trained mind is exercising a powerful influence upon all character and conduct. It is ever searching out what should be done and why it should be done. It is opening up the laws which under lie human society and happiness, and claiming obedience to those laws. It is constantly guiding emotions and feelings into right channels, so that instead of being wasted in mere ebul lution they may conduce to the real good of society. It is also frequently discovering new aims and better meth ods. A recent writer well says: “The man who recognizes new duties above those he has been taught to observe— who sees beyond the circle of conven tional obligations the dim forms of new claimants on his heart and ser vice—is a moral inventor, an enlarg erof human life. Those who saw the claims of the slave were such; those who see the claims of animals are the same. How many more such are still to be seen?” If a healthy body and a vigorous mind are thus interdepend ent and together powerful on the char acter, what shall we say of the heart and the conscience—those forces which we call moral? Without them, both mind and body would soon become a wreck. The capacity may exist, and the knowledge and judgment to guide that capacity may be there; but un less the desires are aroused, the en thusiasm awakened, the emotions stirred, all will be cold and inopera tive. Duties may present themselves clearly and strongly, but unless the heart receive them and the conscience enforce them they will remain undone. While sympathy without wisdom will often lead astray, the wisest scheme of philanthropy without sympathy would be barren and sterile. There is constant action and reaction, and the closer the co-operation between these three parts of humanity the higher will each attain, and the more perfectly will the welfare of the whole individual and of society be main tained.—Philadelphia Ledger. - -- TOUCHING THE SPRING. A Pathetic Scene In the Examination Kooin of a Folice Station. If you were a sergeant at the desk in the Central Station you, too, would seem grim and hard-hearted to an out sider. They see so much crime—they see so many phases of it—they hoar the same excuses over and over until they seem to lose all faith in and all hope for those who sin. Their hearts grow hardened, the well springs of mercy dry np, and you see no pity in their glances. And yet it needs but a sentiment to break through this crust. The other night a woman was brought in staggering drunk. Sho had a face that was pinched and drawn, and it was plain that worry and hunger made her look years older than she was. You and I would have looked into her face and said that she had some excuse for temporarily seek* ing to forget her identity. The grim old sergeant saw only an infraction of the law, and he frowned upon her as she stood clutching the desk. Here was a living book which re corded twenty years of worry, suffer ing, heart-aches, poverty, woe aud want, buthe refused to turn the pages. He had no curiosity; he had no pity. “Name!” he sharply demanded. She gave it. “What have you got in that parcel?” ‘Til never give it up!” she ex claimed. It was something wrapped in an old handkerchief, and she clung to it the tighter. You and I would have won dered if it wasn't a bit of money she had there, but the sergeant thought of poison or some other danger and ordered it handed up. It took two men to release her grasp, and when the parcel was undone, what do you suppose they found in it? A wee lit tle stocking, such as a child a couple of years old might wear. The big toe of the wearer had made a hole, anid the heel had been worn thin, and the bright red color had faded away as the glow fades from the summer sky whwn the twilight comes down. The sergeant held it up—not in mockery and ridicule—but as if it were a tender thing. The grimness went out of his face, a softness replaced the frown, and as the woman bent her head and sobbed, he said: “It is a relic of her dead child! Poor, unfortunate mother!” “You won’t take it from me?” she gasped. “Not for the world! Can you go home?” “I—I guess so. I feel stronger.” “Then go, and may all men a~d women be merciful to you.” The spring of mercy had been touched. As the grim old sergeant held up that faded stocking he remem bered that he had relics at homo—rel ics of children who had danced on his knee in the sunshine of the past, but who now moldSred in the dust. Not for all the money in the world would he have brought one more burden to that poor soul.—Detroit Free Press. -■ m 9 ^ —Once, said Lawrence Oliphant, I was in a Cornish mine, some hundreds of feet down in the bowels of the earth. Crawling down a ladder, and feeling the temperature was every moment getting warmer, I said to a miner who was accompanying me: “It is getting hot down here. How far do you think it is to the infernal regions?” “I don't know exactly,” he replied, “but if you let go you will be there in two min utes.”—London Tit-Bits. — » »» —The best way to preserve apples is keep them from exposure to the heir— Terrs Haute Express. STORIES OF BIRDS. Vhelr Nature i ml Habits as Affected by the Presence of Man. It is interesting ta compare reports from different parts of the globe in re gard to the nature and habits of wild creatures as affected by the presence of man. In an undisturbed state they i exhibit precisely the feelings toward us which Cowper put into the mouth of Alexander Selkirk: “The beasts that roam over the plain, My form with indifference see; They are so unacquainted with man. Their tameness is shocking to me." It is plain that the dread they show of man, and the cunning with which they contrive to keep out of his way, are cultivated by the manner in which they are pursued. We are familiar with the habits of the crow. Most readers have no doubt seen these birds feeding in the fields while one of their number kept guard from a stake in the fence .or from the top of a tree which overlooked all the ground. They are the most wary and the most mischievous of birds. This is due to their training. In Japan, where for centuries life was not taken, the crow is known for its boldness. Mr. St. John says of the Japanese crow: "They are most impertinent birds. I remember once being very much amused watching a girl washing some plates outside the cottage door. Six or eight of these cool, inquisitive birds were on the ground, not two feet from her hands, and now and then tv. o or three would hop in am? pick at something which fell from the dishes, the girl constantly switching her cloth at the black birds to keep them from pecking her fingers. The coolness of these kindly treated friends of the Japanese is everywhere the same.” From the opposite quarter of the globe, British Guiana, Mr. Brown, the Government survovor, who pene trated more than five hundred miles from the coast, reports similar obser vations in regard to animals that were met. “Owing,” he says, “to the entire absence of representatives of the human race in this portion of the Essequibo, all members of bird and mammal life met with were exceed ingly tame. Capybaras, which were numerous, appeared not to know in what light to view us; and when we were encamped at a large, shallow cataract, where there was a great spread of semi-submerged rocks, cov ered with aquatic plants, one of these animals came up so close to Ben, who was washing clothes,, that hi had to throw stones at it to drive it away. At one place the men gave chase over the rocks and shallows to three young water-haas, which, with their parents, were gazing stupidly at us. They suc ceeded in capturing two of the little ones after an exciting hunt, but gave them their freedom again. The bush ibises, white cranes and muscovy ducks would let us approach close to them before they attempted to fly.”—Youth's Compan ion. WORDS OF PRAISE. The ISest Way of Knrouraging and Assist ing Children. Every one likes to be appreciated. Kind words cost little, but the good they may do can not always be esti mated. If those who have had expe rience a id have learned to bear the trials and disappointments of life may be benefted by genuine praise, how much more the children! But says one, “They are so much trouble, It is easier to do the work myself than to spend time leaching my children.” Did you never have to learn? Could you always do just right? What if the work is imperfectly done, and much time is required to teach your child how to bear the re sponsibilities of life? It is a God-given work, just as important as any other. Every child has a right to be taught lessons of self-reliance and independ ence that he may be able to bear the trials and temptations of life with pa tience and courage, or as one has said, “to make the best of himself,” and the best of life. Make the children feel that their la bors are required and appreciated. Let them bear responsibilities, light at first, increasing as they are able to bear more, but if they fail to reach your perfect standard do not say, “There is no use, you can not learn,” lest they become discouraged. Bather let your advice be: “Try again my dear; next time you will succeed bet ter.” You will not be disappointed," they will do better and may, in time, excel the teacher. Some children are so unused to commendation that the words, “You did well,” bring tears to their eyes. Pity such! Their lives are filled with discouragement. En courage the children. Teach them that work is noble. Teach them how to work and make them think they can succeed. Lift them up by your exam ple, kind words and sympathy, to “higher life and nobler deeds.” You will be amply repaid by gratitude and noble, loving service.—Addic Allen, in Household. —“Prisoner,” said the police magis trate, “you are charged with being found drunk and disorderly on the street last night at a late hour. Have you any thing to say?” “Nothing, your honor," replied the prisoner. “Pm guilty. I carved my first turkey yes terday before a dining room full of guests.” “My poor fellow” exclaimed the magistrate compassionately, “I know just hew you felt. Officer, re lease this man.”—Chicago Tribune. # »» —The new President of the Haytian Republic wants to have a standing army. His wish explains itself.

B. with very little faith, but, to ray utter surprise it has made me a well and hearty persou.” Z. T. Hallerton, Macon, Ga., writes: “I contracted blood poison. I first tried phy sicians, and then went to Hot Springs. I re turned home a ruined man physically. Nothing seemed to do me any good. Mv mother persuaded me to try B. B. B. To my utter astonishment every ulcer quickly healed.” Benj. Morris, Atlanta. Ga., writes: “I suffered rears from syphilitic blood poison which refused to be cured by all treatment. Physicians pronounced it a hopeless case. I bad no appetite, I bad pains in hips and joints and mv kidneys were diseased. My throat was ulcerated and my breast a mass of running sores. In this condition I com menced a use of B. B. B. It healed every ulcer and sore and cured me completely within two months.” Tnv residuum after the effervescence of love is common sense, which is the ground work of well-regulated matrimony. A Valuable Franchise Secured. The franchise of easy digestion—one of the most valuable in the gift of medical science —can be secured by any person wise enough to use Hostetter's "Stomach Bitters, either to suppress growing dyspepsia, or to uproot it at maturity. Bilious, rheumatic and fever and ague sufferers, persons troubled with nervousness and the constipated, should also secure the health franchise by the same means.
