ACHIEVEMENT OF SCIENCE
The process of the transfusion of
blood from the veins of a healthy
into those of a diseased person is
certainly a remarkable achievement
of medical science, more especially
as it seems that the result is the
improvement of the patient There
have been reports of several such
successful operations lately ,but the
most marvelous one of all is that in
which the blood of a lamb was sub-
stituted for that of a human being.
It was performed by a learned pro-
fessor at Naples without the inter
. vpntion of anv mechanical force.
His patient was a lady thirty years
of age, dying from anaemia, caused,
by frequent hemorrhage. The doc
end. tor determined to set aside the theo

transtusion direct from the carotid

SINGULAR PHENOMENA IN OHIO—IS

Three miles from Bainbridge,
Ross countv. is located a hill

"Copperas Mountain." Out of the
mountain issues a constant stream

generai surface the vegetation has
withered and died, until the whole
bill presents a barren, sterile and
desolate aspect, blasted as if by

the hill is so uncomfortably hot
that it is almost impossible for
barefooted person to walk there.
It is believed by persons who have
visited and inspected this lusus na
turae, that the entire interior of the
hill is a mass of ignited combustible
matter, and that the fire is and has
been spreading, To account for this
