Of a Surgical Operation Porformod ou E. W. Highhouso, FORMERLY OF BELLfllRE. OHIO. It Wan Made Xcoostary by a Violent Case of IMcurisy? His llcarr Can lie genu to Iloat?Ho Has Exhibited His physical Condition cot lie Prominent Mcdical Men of the Country. Ni:w Yoiik, Dec. 25.?Tho Herald has tho foliowirifr: If there is a porson in >'ew York, or anywhere else for that matter, who doubts that tho heart of Edward W. Iliffhhouse is in the right place, all he need do to sot his doubt at rest is to look at tho heart, covered only by tho pericardium at its constant work. Mr. lfichhouso is at present staying at the Putnam House, in Fourth avenue, whero X eaw him yesterday. A more rare surgical case liua perhaps seldom been known. Ho was employed in tho moat dressing room of P. D. Armour's packing nouHo in South Omaha in May, 1S88. }!. caught a cold which developed into pleurisy. He wag continod to hit) house lor four months, and although not entirely well at the end of that time went to hia former homo at Warren, Pa., where lie remained until February, KSS. He decided finally to go tho general hospital in Uuflalo, X. Y., for treatment. having been told that it would be necessary for him to undorgo a surgical operation. iio put himself in tho hands of Dr. ltoswoll Park, chief surgeon of tho general hospital. Ho reached tho hospital early in February. and on the 16th of that month lite operation was performed. More than a dozen surgeons were present, lie was sutlering from an abscess in the chest. Tho operation was on the principle laid down by Eastlandcr. One and onehalf inches was resected or removed from five ribs on tho left sido in front and from four or five ribs in tho back. By this means tho pleural cavity was opened in such a man nor that the hand could bo put through irom ono sido to to the other. A largo quantity of pus was then removed and tho left lung fniinrl fn hn nlmnof pntirwlv anno. DETAILS OK THE OPERATION. The pleural cavity was scraped and cleaned and washed with a chloride of zinc solution. It was then packed with zinc oxide gauze, and dressed as necessary. Ether was the anaesthetic used, llighhousa was under its influence for more than two hours, although the operation proper only occupied half of that time. ile stood the operation well and rapidly recovered. His physical condition after the operation was most remarkable, however. To the left of and immediately adjoining the heart was an opening about four incites long and three inchoi wide. The cavity extended through to the back. Looking into tho cavity the ribs of the back wero plainly distinguished. Tho most remarkable sight, however, is the working of the man's heart. Each beat and movement of tho heart was clearly discerniblo. Mr. High house was hardly able to do work of any kind after leaving the hospital at lJuQalo, and went to Bellaire, Ohio, where ho had sent his wife and three children. lie had a hard struggle Jo make a living for his family and last month decided to exhibit his peculiar physical condition to medical men in colleges, clinics or in private, as a moans of supporting his family. He has exhibited himself to clinics m Chicago, Cincinnati, Columbus, 0., and Louisville. In New York ho hat boon shown to two of Dr. W. Gilman Thompson's classes at the University Medical College, and also to a clinic of Dr. Alfred Loo mis, in tho amphitheatre of I'.cllovuo Hosnital. He has also been shown to a class in the Woman's Medical College and in tho Long Island Hospital. exhibited at clinics. Prof. Curtis, of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, exhibited Mr. Highhouse yesterday morning in tho amphitheatre of that college. It. W. (tilinan Thompson will tako him to New Haven next Thursday, to exhibit him to tho medical faculty there. Mr. Highhouse told me yesterday, after showing mo the ofiect of tho oporation, that he is generally in good health, but has to toko tho greatest precaution against taking cold or ovorexerting himself. IIo leels much hotter in summer than in winter, because of the dillorence in the temperature. For the purpose of protecting himself from cold ho fills up tho cavity in his chest with a couple of handfuls of cotton. NVxt to his skin he wears a buckEkin undershirt. Ho has occasionally n slight pain in the region of tho chest. He does not smoke or drink and is most careful of his diet. Ho appreciates his condition thoroughly, and said yesterday, "I know that I may drop ofl at any time." Ho is thirty-six years old and was liorn in Warron, Pa, IIo is five foot nino inches in height and weighs 151 pounds, although his weight was 183 pounds beforo he was attacked by pleurisy In 1S88. His general appearance fives no indication of his uctual condition. From New Haven Mr. Highhouso will go to Philadelphia, Baltimoro and Washington, where ho expects to exhibit himself to medical men und clinics. Witii many clergymen, public speakers.

OKU.MANY AXI) TIIB CATHOMCt Tho Vote of tlie llololiitlui; on tl?e lift urn c tho Jentilt*. Rome, Dec. 25.?Tho Associated Prea correspondent in this city has had ai interview with a Gorman occlesiaitit who occupies a leading position ii Koine, 011 the,subject of tho recent vot in the German rcichttag upon the <jues lion of readmitting members of th Socioty of Jesus to Germany. Tho distinguished prolate referred t believes that tho German federal couu cil, which is a sort of senate, will no ratify tho vote of tho reichst&ff, saying "An aristocratic and conservative apiri prevails in tho former assembly,'and i should not bo forgotten ttiat in Prusai u large portion of the nobilitv and of th< patrician class is Lutheran. Tho Km poror himself is an ardent and woll-nigi militant oiotist, and would not see witl a favorable eye tho return of the Jesuits implying, as it would, u triumoU ol Catholic nspirutioiiB. Nevertheless, tho voto of the reich Staff constitutes a good precedent. lr tho event of tho motion being rejectee! by tho federal council, it will be brough forward again, later on, and indeed, a many times as necessary, until by dinl of perseveranco und constancy ail obetu cles are ovoraomo." The correspondent then asked the prelato how :t was that certain groupi in the roichstag calling themselves con sorvative, liad voted ngainst tho rotun of tho Jesuits, whose action had invari ably been m support of conservatm ideas. Ho replied that it was chiefly tho conservatives of tho Prussian provinces win had voted in this summer, and they die so out of tear of not buiug re-elected. "And the socialists," tho correspond ent asked; "why did they vote 111 favo of tho Jesuits, knowing tjiat the latte are their.enemies?" "No doubt," repliod tho occlesiastic, "becauso they dread, on their own ac count, legislative measures; and 01 principle they refused to authorize tin employment of weapons against tin society of Jesus which might somo da> be used against them." "Have you noticed," tho correspondont finally asked, "the violent tono o tho articles published bv the Ouervator< Jlomano and tho Voce Delia VeriU against tho Gorman deputy, lleri Lieber, who declared, on behalf of tin C'ontre, that tho infallibility of tho pop< didnotgivo tho pontiff tho right t< turn German Catholics from their dutj to their omperor and their country in tho ovont of dangor to tho fatherland*. 1)003 tho deputy's assertion really dosorvo the blamo bostowed upon it by those two papers, which uro genorally held to represent tho views of the ratican, and does llorr Lieber's statement ofiend dogma?" "Not iu tho least," repliod tho occlosiastic, "I see nothing reprehensible in Horr Lieber's statement. Tho reproach is constantly levelled against German Catholics that they cannot bo good patriots because of the obedience they owe to the pope, who is a foreigner, Now, Horr Ueber desired to refute thic charge by making an explicit statemeni and his declaration in my opinion is iE no way incompatible with dogma."
