New Yobk, Jaly 31.?An article by Dr.
Shrady on the surgical and pathological
aspect of General U rant's caae will appear
In the Medical Journal Saturday. Dr.
Douglas will hereafter describe the treatment
more elaborately. Extracts from
Dr. Shrady's article are subjoined:
It la not definitely known when the

It waa early in Jane, 1884, as at that time
General Grant firstcomplained of sorenear
in the right. tonailar region. On March
7th, when I firstsaw the patient, In consaltation
with Dra. Birker, Doaglaa and
Sands, it waa foand that the perforation
at the base of the anterior pillar had extended
ao that its internal edge was adverted
into a mere bridle of tissue. The
entire aoft falate was uniformly reddened
and swollen from inflammatory infiltration,
and the surfaces of the right tonailar
region and adjoining portion ol the vault
ol the pharynx cere covered with a thick
consistent yellowish exndatioff resembling
aiongbiug tiasue. This deposit was evi

This view of the complication explain.)
many of the grave symptoms which were
subsequently associated with great prostration,
bnt which were not directly ti actable
to the progress of the epithelionmatoos
degeneration; The expediency of
a radical surgical operation for the removal
of the growth was discussed early
in the case, it was cooaldered that such
a measure would have involved the division'
of the lower jay in front of the
nunas, the extirpation of the entire tongue
and tbe greater part of the s it palate, together
with the removal of the ulcerated
and infiltrated fauces and the endurated
glandular structures uuder the right angle
of the lower jaw.
This was considered mechanically possible.
deaaite the close proximity and
probable involvement of the tissues adjoining
the large arteries and veins in the
neighborhood of the ulcerations, but in
the best interests of the distinguished
patient the surgeons did not (eel inclined
to recommend procedure. Even by such
means there could be no guarantee in
view of the extensive surrounding infiltration
that the limits of the disease could
be reached without immediate risk to life
by the severe shock to a constitution
already much enfeebled.
On April 7 hemorrhage from the throat
occurred about midnight- which ceased
spontaneously after four ounces of blood
had been lost The occasion for the
bleeding was the detachment of a portion
of slough from the right side of the
pharynx. Mo large vessel was implicated.
During the twenty-four hours succeeding
the hemorrhage the poise became more
feeble, frequent and intermittent and the
temperature at one time roso to 102 degrees.
In order to relieve pain ana procure
sleep, the patient wu kept mildly under
the influence ot morphine, the latter being
injicted hypodernutiealiy to the amonnt
ol aii misuna every six hours. The morphine
wu afterward decreased to six minims
in the twenty-lour hours, and but
slightly exceeded that, save on one or two
occasions, op to the time ot his death.
The separation o( theslongli was anxiously
awaited, and when it occurred the patient,
as was expected, became milch relieved of
many of his more distressing local symptoms
and of his depressed bodily condition.
Then it was announced by the
press that because the General bad rallied
the physicians had erred in diagnosing the
case, and consequently the patient's
chances of recovery were good.
The temporary rally of the patient's
strength wai taken advantage ol in every
possible way to conserve his vital forces
and make bis last days as comfortable as
possible. The taccess attending these
edorts wss manifested in msajr ways.

He, however, possessed in a remarkable
dan?Hi tha fienltr of reoressing his feet
inn taring Mi pain and maintaining hit
mental composure, all ol which was calcuUted
to deceive a casual observer u to
the real extent of suffering. In the midst
of this, and witb'ft constant reminder ol
approaching death, he *toipalIy gave himatjM
tip to the composition ol his lifo story,
anxious only that be should live long
enough to finish it The progress ol the
local disease was a steady one from tho
beginning. The Ion ot tuo palate and
adjacent soft parts, with tbe consequent
lack ol perfect control of the tongue, occasioned
great difficulty in swallowing.

partly to tuic&eoiag oi mo iwm wi?s wj

to a relaxation oI the parte tram general

A brief summary of
TUB TREATMENT
ia all that will be necaeaary to give now.
Early in the diaeaae, in order to eliminate
every poaslble chance of error in dlaj,'
noaia, the patient waa placed under the
peciBc treatment, although th?-'clin!ca
hiitory of the caao gave only negative in'
dicationa for Ita neceasity. Thia treatment,
although continued foraaufficient
period, produced no effect in healing the
ulcerations or in arresting tljo progress 01
the disease.
The cause o( the disease in this cast ii
largely conjectural. Epthelioms, aa a
rute.aurta from local irritation, and, unlike
other forma at cancer, in not depend'
ent npon hereditary predlapoaition to the
disease. There moat, however, aside
from this, be a latent tendency toward
cancerous troubles, which Is more pro

would induce the ditews in oue cut

The latter never changed bat lor the

from the erosion of tho valla of the larger

to be eventually possible, but was at no
time seriously feared, at nature had
thrown out her safeguards In the shape ol
dense deposits around the branches of the
carotid artery and jugular vein.
Althounb there was more or lets constant
nain of a crowing character, the pa

suffering which la otien associated with
invasion of the deeper puts of the
tongue by cancerous disease. Had the
latter occurred it waa propxed to divide

Stories Told.
' WisniaoTos, Jttly 3li-jThe selection of
the piU-bearen is a very happy one. The
i army is represented by Generals Sherman
i and Sheridan, the two officers who were
most intimately associated with General
Grant during the war and in whom be
had the greatest confidence. The nary is
represented by Admirals Porter and Rowan,
both of whom rendered distinguished
services during the war. Of the ex-Confederate
officers, General Johnston was
held in high esteem by the Union com- <
minder, who regarded his military ablli- <
ties as equal, if not superior, to those of
Lee. General BucknerwasGeneralGrant's i
classmate at West Point, and the first Confederate
officer who surrendered to him
during the war. He was also the last who
bad an extended interview with General ,
' Grant before his death, and he told the ,
pathetic narrative of the General's thankfulness
that full reconciliation between the *
Confederate and Union soldiers had been i
accomplished^ 1
A touching story is told of General ]
Buckner's friendship for General Grant, i
which has not yet been in print, Soon i

C. II., 0., correspondent telegraphs to the
Commercial Gaztttt; "Two miles from the
village of Greenfield, in Ron county, on
the Greenfield turnpike, ia the extensive
/rait farm of General 8. H. Hnnt. His
brother, and some of bis neighbors, have
also large orchards in the neighborhood,
so that there are in the immediate vicinity
scarcely less than three hundred scree of
commercial orchards, containing at least
forty thousand trees.
General Hunt's reputation, not as a
uoiucumirillfc euureiy, uui as u lenumg
temperaocs ftdvocato aad earnest and
courageous moral reformer, an well as
stalwart Republican, led oar correspondent
on a bright July morning to span the
twenty miles oi beantilnl country between
Washington, C. H., and the General's
orchard home, that we might talk with
him abont the political situation and get
bis opinion on (be Third Party movement
It will be remembered that four years
ago thia summer the General took part in
a little ''picnic" at Loveland camp ground,
where Ludlow, the cider aud wine press
man, was nominated for Governor by the
Prohibitionists. The efforts of Or. Leonard
and othera to sit down on bim were
not at all successful.
The Loveland meeting had been called
by a committee appointed bya State convention
at Columbus early iu the spring.
xu viuw ui buc uriiuu ui. wo tnu uiuiij
State conventions olthat year. the Lovelaud
meeting irii called "to consider the
duty ot temperance men," as the invitation
declared. Whether to select a ticket
at ol the two already nominated, to nominate
anew third party ticket or to take no
action at all were mutters to be considered.
General Hunt then, sa now, opposed
the third party movemept, and though
roaghly sssailea by Sr. Leonard and nia
friends, stood his ground manfully, and
gave bis opinions with such torce as to seriously
damage the spinal arrangements
of the whole Loveland movement,*ud tome
of the epithets applied ;to General Hunt
by Dr. Leonard and others would not look
ws'l in print.
We found the General at home, earnestly
engaged In the work of bis hay
harvest. Democratic and unpretentious
in his life and manners, he is a real
WOrKIUglUHU Wb UUO Wl [Mocam WHIJ
school, lie believes that labor is honorable,
and readily tikes a hand in whatever
seeds to be done on bis turn. He
rave as a farmer's welcome, and talked
irwly on the political situation, making
oar visit at once a pleasure and success.
"X have been too busy this year,'? he
said, "to take much part in politics. Oar
business of fruitgrowing has been very
unprofitable for the laat ten yean, and we
are compelled to do tome general farming,
hence you see I have been kept In constant
employment. However, I have
watched quietly the current of political
sentiment, and believe the tide runs
strougly toward Republican success."

votes perhaps, bat no more. Hence
his nomination has very little significance,
Theee old-liners are bound to nominate
and rnn a ticket, and it makes little
difference who they put in. There ii a
vast array of temperance menlnOhiowho
stand ready to help the cause whenever
the; can do to with hops of success. But
they will not abandon or defeat the party
to which they belong for what Governor
Allen weald have called 'a d?d barren
ideality.'
"In the army wo hqd eqmo men who
were always banging away at the supposed
enemy. On the skirmish line, on the
picket line, in the foraging party?anywhere
and everywhere, they were banging

not bo suppressed. It made uo difference
if the foe waa not within twenty milea.
Still their eternal fasilade went
on. ioey wbib uuucbi. ouiuicn,
they thought tho thing to do was to

were not the men who won oar battles.

"Bat then," the repqrter suggested.
"Dr. lleoDnrct thinks that that time will

it will bednven to seek alliance with the
