Dr. J. Leonard Corning Gives the Result et
III* Experiments.
At a recent meeting of the Modical
Society of the County of Now York at
the Academy of Medicine, Dr. J. Leon
ard Corning read a paper entitled the
"Prolonged Anæsthetitation by Incar
ceration of the Anaesthetic Fluid in the
Field of Operation." The paper had
special reference to the use of the hy
drochlorate of cocaine in operation.-, of
all kinds, and it was shown that expert
specialists had only reached the point
whore the possibilities of cocaine were
dawning upon them. Cocaine was yet
in the state of experimentation, and
every day something new was being
discovered in regard to its wonderful
properties. Dr. Corning related a num-'
ber of experiments that he had made
with cocaine fqr the purpose of limiting
its application to the parts to be oper
ated upon, effects from its use, ana to
prevent any evil constitutional effects
from its use, and to reduce the strength
of the solution.
A prolonged anaesthetic condition, he
said, could be secured by suspending
the loeaj circulation while the cocaine
was in the part to be oporated
One of the objections to the use
caine was that its effects soon passed off,
and the patient would feel pain when
the instruments were used. The brain
was liable to be affected if a compara
tively large amount of cocaine was in
jected into the body while the circula
tion remained free. If the circulation
of cocaine
be reduced and the danger of using
a large quantity of the solution would
be reduced to a minimum. The solution
usually employed in operations was from
two to five per cent, in strength, but
with this new method tumors, cancers,
abscesses have been removed, disloca
tions reduced, ingrowing nails removed,
and successful plastic and other deli
cate operations performed with a solu
tion containing from one-third to onv
per cent, of cocaine. In this new
method of using cocaine a map of the
superficial veins was first made and
then bandages are applied to compress
the parts near the point of operation so as
to check the circulation of blood,
a superficial hypodermic injection ia
given quickly, of from two to five min
After the superficial tissue ia
anaesthetized, long needles are inserted
and the cocaine injected into the deep
seated tissue. The bandages prevent
the liquid from being absorbed and pass
ing into the blood, and localises it at
the pu.nt that is to be operated oil. Even
with the weak solution that is used it is
only a rare case in which supplementary
injections are necessary. The doctor
explained the manner in which he ap
plied the bandages to various parts ol
the body, and showed a number of rub
ber rings and instruments that he found
useful m the practical application of hii
method. He said that when cocainr
was injected into the body there was a
zone of anwstlietized flesh from one-half
to one inch in diameter.
Dr. Lewis, the President, in the dis
cussion that followed the reading of the
paper, said that he had used Dr. Com
ing's method in the removal of a large
epithelial cancer from the shoulder of a
woman. The integument was unusual
ly thick and the operation lasted forty
minutes. The patient did not complain
of pain but once, and that was when the
knife penetrated a part that hail not
been injected with cocaine. He pro
ced the operation painless and a
of co
was checked the
eon Id
Dr. Roberts said that one of the most
important objections to the use of
cocaine is the fear of tlie patient. Pain
and consciousness have heretofore been
synonymous terms. It can now be dem
onstrated to patients that operations
where cocaine is used are absolutely
painless, even though tlie patient seei
what is going on. If cocaine is not given
skillfully its usefulness is impaired. He
said that he had found Dr. Coming's
method of great service, and that he had
used it in many operations with success.
The most important result attained is
the reduction of the quantity of the drag.

A Roraewhmt (iloiring Topic Xot Flippant
ly, f)ul Humorously, Discussed.
The subject of what we shall do with
ourselves after death is one that should
be fully considered at an early date. In
all seriousness, the soul is not the only
thing to be looked after, either during
life or after death. We are too prone to
neglect our health during life and then
bequeath our accumulated microbes and
other results of a long and perhaps
crooked career to some sightly ceme
tery, set on a hill like a city tliat can mit
be hid.
Longevity is a good thing, though I
have known public men to overdo it.
To die at the proper moment and leave
a good impression on history is one of
the lost arts. To flicker out of life with
the appiause of a great people ringing
in the ears is a good thing; but man
that is born of a woman, and the major
ity of them are that way, are too prone
to linger on this side of eternity until
they have done some little thing that is
never properly explained on their tomb
But after death what shall we do with
ourselves? In this brief treatise I dare
not attempt to he thorough or even
lucid. Leaving others who know ail
about it to state exactly what disposition
will be made of our souls, let us look
into the matter of what we shall do witli
our bodies.
I hope that what I may say will not be
regarded as flippant, for this is no place
for flippancy, but allow me to speak
plainly of it, as I would on any other
subject, concerning onr health.
Death has some very peculiar charac
teristics. For instance, it will wake up
the dormant, old crank, who has never
missed a funeral for sixty years,

nis holiday. It is the one saving sport
in his otherwise joyless life. We all
remember him. lie is sometimes a
The thought that the time will come
some day when this man will put on his
funeral clothes and come to my funeral
makes my tall hair rise up on end. He
can not gloat over me now, but the
day may come when I shall lie low, in
stead of lying otherwise, as I do now;
and he may outlive me and come to see
properly buried. Then he will injoy
himself ! Ah, what a blessed relief it
would be could I hover over the iloor
way when he comes, and hear my foot
man announce to the old vulture that
lie "is a little late, as Mr. Nye was put
in the kiln ha"lf an hour ago."
I could suffer a good deal through life
if I knew that I could at last head off
the funeral fiend—the man who
wouldn't loan me a dollar when I wa.
stniggling for grub, but who cheerfully
visits my funeral and shows his ap
proval in every possible wav.
I must say in all candor that there are
many attractive features about crema
tion. I am sure that when cremation is
placed within the reach of all it will
rapidly become, popular.
In the first, place, if the space between
life and physical annihilation could he
made just as narrow as possible it would
be far more cheerful to consider. Deatli
itself is cruel onough. but to add to it a
hippodrome of a public funeral and turn
our parlors into a gaudy morgue, and
then to repose- in a crowded cemetery
till the city wants the ground for a [»ark.
and then to pick up our crumbling hones
and move away to a new grave, is not
cheerful to contemplate.
I have often thought that a cheerful
book of fifty or sixty pages might be
written under the title of "Recollections
of Resurrection; or, the Diary of a
Body." It could be made to teach us a
valuable lesson. Politically I am
pledged to genuine national reform.
Let the nation try it, and
it works all right on the nation I will
try it myself. Next I am in favor of
cremation at living prices. At present
I he price is too high, and the poor
man is left to decay and fill the
soil with the poisonous gases, which the
poor, as well as the rich, may indulge in
after death.
Deatli should end our career, so far
as earthly affairs go,

college, and our skeletons wired to

the opportunity, if we escape the first
two, of being tipped out of our
graves by a flood, an earthquake, or
the act of the Common Council, it is
no wonder that people cling to life.
If I thought that for centuries after

outside the sufferer's body, outside him

I remember once, in a far foreign
country, seeing a man who moped, lost
his appetite and looked generally
wretched for days, but who, on being
questioned as to the cause of his melan

health. Afterward, when the lit, which
was fortunately merely a temporary
one, had worn itself out, he told me
that it was a heart-longing for home
which had suddenly taken possession of
him; that it seemed to him he could not
again be happy till he heard the old
tones and paced the old garden walks.
If only for a day or an hour it would
have contented him. Ho could again
have assumed the harness of daily toil,
and spent the necessary years of exile
in a foreign land, could he for one day
have drunk at this refreshing well.—
The Last of an Historical and Well-Known
The sale of the ship Three Brothers
closes the career of a historical craft. In
1855 Commodore Vanderbilt ordered
constructed for his New York anil
Havre line a steamship which was de
signed to attain a remarkable speed.
When approaching completion, so
pleased was the old Commodore witli
the fineness of her lines and the promise
her model gave of quick passages that
he had her christened after himself. No
pains or expense had been spared in the
Vanderbilt's construction and fittings,
and when she left the builder's hands
she is said to have represented an ex
penditure of eight hundred thousand
dollars. During the early part of the
war. when the Confederate cruiser Ala
bama was making such inroads on the
American merchant marine and the
Union nten-of-war were unable to effect
her capture, the idea presented itself to
Commodore Vanderbilt that perhaps
his pet steamship might accomplish
what the ship« of the navy had failed to
do, and he presented her to the Govern
ment. For this munificent act Vander
bilt was thanked by Congress and had a
gold medal struck in his honor. Ultim
ately she came to this coast conveying
the old Monitor Mottadnock around the
Horn, and made one trip to Honolulu,
on which occasion she was tendered in
courtesy to carry Queen Emmadown. On
her return she was laid up at Mare
Island until ultimately sold for a small
amount to George ilowes f Co., who,
at an expense of nearly .$200,000, fitted
her up as a sailing vessel, and the
occasion of her first leaving this port
with a wheat cargo was a gala day in
tlie harbor.
After making several
voyages she was sold in Liverpool for
small amount to her late owners, an
English firm, who sold her to lie used as
a coal hulk at Gibraltar. It is quite
probable that the British Government is
tlie purchaser, but the consideration is
not stated. It is, in all probability, the

nterpMtillK Invention Devised to Save
the Time of Legislators.
An intricate and interesting machine
which for over two years has stood in
the room of the committee on education
and labor, on the House side of the
Capitol, is at last to be removed. It
has an interesting history,
gentleman named Crosby, noticing with
some degree of annoyance the immense
amount of time lost in the House by the
calling of the yeas and tlie nays, under
took to invent a machine which could
record the vote almost instantaneously
by tiie means of electricity. There were
to be. electric buttons at each Congress
man's desk. The pressure of°
recorded "yea," and the pressure of
the other recorded "nay" upon a
printed slip at the cferk's desk,
ingenious arrangement moved the hands
of a dial on the Speaker's desk and
showed at a glance how many votes hail
been taken on each side. The inventor,
after having had an expensive model
made, was taken sick and
pel led te spend nine months iu Florida.
The next session of Congress was a very
bnsp one .nd he eoulil get no one to
lisfPn to a dissertation on the merits of
his invention. This year his son fell
siek and died, and he has not been able
to urge upon Congress tho adoption of
his machine. The Speaker will prob
ably give orders to have the apparatus
removed, for it fills up considerable
space. Mr. Crosby wants $75,000 from

received a curious exemplification at the

the recurrence of the number eleven

Liberal candidates came forward, and in

result in the Third Ward was proclaimed
at eleven o'clock at night. The mayor
was elected by 1,111 votes, and among

Consul-General Raine, at Berlin,
embodies in bis annual report a series
of tables from which he deduoes inter
eating facts. The population of the
area now comprised in the German
empire, which was 24,831,000 in 1816,
had increased to 45,234,000 in 1880,and
at its present rate of increase it doubles
once in forty-seven years. This is in
excess of the growth of population of
any of the neighboring powers. Great
Britain. Mr. Raine says, doubled her
population in fifty-one years, the Neth
erlands in fifty-two years, Austria in
sixty and one-half years, Denmark in
fifty-four years, Belgium in sixty-one
years, while France requires two
hundred years to double her population
at present rates. The emigration front
the empire shows a steady and marked
decrease since 1881, from which fact
Mr. Raine argues that either the eco
nomical condition of Germany has im
proved, the attractive force of America
nas decreased, or Bismarck's colonial
policy is proving successful. This pol
icy is meeting with universal approval
throughout the empire.
The German Colonial Association,
formed two years ago, spread with
great rapidity. The first acquisition
was made by a Bremen firm of traders,
the area being one hundred German
square miles in South Africa. The
traders applied for and received recog
nition from the home Government, and
other traders speedily followed the
example, possessions being thus ac
quired in East Africa, Cameroon,

and the colonies, and a third line has

prise between Hamburg and the Congo.

A High-Toned German Itanquet In the
Middle Age«.
The Germans, always celebrated for
heavy eating, furnish us with some
curious culinary items. Iu the middle
ages the goose was the grand disb
among them; but they also ate crows,
storks, cranes, herons, swans and bit
terns—these last-named dishes being
arranged in a circle of honor around
the goose. The geier or European vul
ture, the dog-fish, the dolphin and
even the whale, were eaten; while
roast guinea pig was considered a very
great delicacy. All their foods were
highly spiced; and sauces were endless
in their variety, three or four kinds
being served up with each dish,
these sauces pepper, mace, cinnamon,
cloves, ginger, garlic, saffron
pimento contended for the masterv,
and the more decided the flavor the
better the cook.
Of course, the great art was to ar
range these sauces in an ascending
scale of piquancy. So preat, indeed,
was the passion for highly-flavored
foods that turkeys had often an allow

"The subject is a complex one, and in
its analysis we have to consider not only
the various comblions surrounding the
infant, but the still more importantone of
the Iutent tendency to discus". The
fashionable mother, the self-indulgent
father, hand down to their children
wrought nervous systems ami weak
physical powers, which result iu early
death, or more often a life of protracted
feebleness. Very little of the common
senss hich is exercised in the rearing
and pi rviug of choice stock exists in
relation u the human animal. It would
require too long a time to enter into ail
the questions of heredity which influence
the fate of the child. They are, however,
of vital importance both to the individual
and to the race. That the race is gaining
in int UccLual capacity is an undoubted
fact,; but we are losing just us much or
more iu physical power. We see no such

"What will best strengthen a feeble,

"Fresh air, exercise, le-s struggle for
fashionable or social distinction, and a
lareful attention to (lie load or drink
