FED THROUGH A TUBE.
ilarable rendition of a Young «Set-man la St bonis Th medical profession of SL Lon is 3 k je*t now intensely interested and mat * little excited over the presence :Mm Mkeir midst of one of the surgioal mo r ec t* of the age—a youth with a im his stomach. The subject is aCtrau bev named Charles Schan, "Btjiears of age. He has for tbe past nths lived with friends in -SUeago. About six weeks ago certain of this city learned of his :fal ease, and at once steps taken to induce him to come to l>ouie for the benefit of the pro nom itéra. The operation which has so miraou SbbsI. saved Schau from certain death tear starvation is one which has been times attempted during the prea eoutury, but bas rarely succeeded ■ri« his ease, death usually resulting Atm lev days or weeks. The disease rendered this operation tary is known as stenosis of the ugus or stricture of the food •ago of the lower throat This is .mo uncommon disorder, and, as no #Lkuowu for it. it in almost every ice results in death by starvation. St ü usually of a cancerous nature ~.«if »low growth. In the case in ;—tlie youth Schau —however, the sm myhugus became choked in a single ■igiit. and until more light can bo t.-pon the matter the actual tmaSMre of his case must remain in Experiment aud experience that the only method of pro •Stevsgtug life iu such a case is by the ■«M&ahdisiiment of a gastric fistula, or -esslemai opening into the stomach. J igh which the necessary food Wflji y .can be introduced into that ■arjis. This, as will ha readily per ' is a very delicate operation, ■opening is made through the abdo into the interior of the stomach, arkieh a small circular portion is re td of the size required for the ^■B^ose of the operation. A plug of <wboiizjd gauze, or other suitable -in!, is introduced into the opeu matg. aud the wound is allowed to heal, ~ ring the small op en.ng into the ich. As soon as the state of the id will permit, a silver tube fit **S the opening is introduced into ~ stomach, and through this the food im passed. Xu the case in point, however, no sifirer tube cau be discerned. The pa tstaot feeds himself through a red rub " tube about three-eighths of an isaeit in dmmoter, and eighteen inches which appears to pass directly Se&o the stomach. It is held in place means of two or three strips of sticking plaster, the ends of wiiich -adhere closely to tho skin on cither smde tlie tube, thus preventing it from cdtpping. When not in use the outer omlof the tube is plugged w.th a roll <af cotton and coiled up in the patient's îfcceom. When he wishes to feed him ■fifcif the plug is removed and the taper ' of a small tin fnnael is introduced. Jtato this the food, in a liquid or semi J&qwd state, is poured aud finds its teray naturally into the stomach. As She food so introduced is necessarily «»ery light and of a kind readily digest sbi^ Ssiiau is obliged to feod himself aa&out every two hours. As the food can readily be withdrawn Xkom the stomach at any stage in the proeess of digestion, for the purpose vf examination and analysis, tho value of each a case as Schaute to the sto its of physiology is inestimable, as Xtwill enable the student to reach con dagions and establish facts of the ut it importance with a certainty that eatild be achieved in no other way. It ia understood that Dre. K ehtor sad Lutz have made arrangements to jfceep Schau here during the winter for the purpose of experimenting on all ibjects connected with the stomach td digestion, aud for the particular teeaetit of the students of Beaumont CaUege. — St. Louis Republic. Woes of One Night in a Board ing House. Within the past twenty-four hoars a ■ies of calamities lias occured in the «Mardi tig house at 104 West Thirty Sfcird street kept by Adele and Henry BertUolette, and the events h ave had -Ute effect of throwing the whole house fcstdTcto a stale of consternation. On 8*s t Monday Joseph Calasanti, an Xfcalian waiter, applied for and secur ad board. He told a great many con ducting stories in regard to himself and fauiitv. which he claimed consisted of abteifo aud two children and were down ith. As to his occupation he gave «Stout that he was a waiter in a private i'Steoiiy In Fifty-seventh street Several times during tbe week he '<itsr.cten in a most disorderly manner rmthUe in the house and has been re 'Xpwwed by Mr. Bertholette» Last night «■It flauer Calasanti applied a vilenamo tmy Mrs. Bertholette, and he was sum rily ordered by the landlord to - Seave the bouse. The two men went xnt into the hall, and during the alter nation which followed tbo objection tine boarder was knocked down. Up teas regaining his feet he gathered his . taeteagings together and left tho house. £iniua Mette y , whose husband, Hon ist. la a cook in Trainer's hotel. waLch a4 Calasanti from the window, and te* him go up to Sixth avenue, cross .ifao »tract and return on the other side. ■Wlifli* he reached a point opposite the iKMise he recrossed tho street and on bared tho basement of the house where the cook was at work. He solzed one of the big carving knives that lay on a table and ran up stairs. John Ducrete, the cook, ran to the foot of the a tairs aud yelled iu French; "Look out, there!" This was enough for a warning to the people in the dining room, and when the would-be murderor ran in with a knife nearly a foot long in hand, Mr. Bertholetto had a pistol ready. One shot was fired, bat the ballet went astray, and then the landlord reoeived a slash on his right forearm that made him drop the still smoking revolver with a howl of pain. Calasanti made his escape, bat was arrested within an hour by Policeman Ward, of tho Thirtieth street station, and. after be ing fully identified, was looked up. This morning he was held at Jefferson Market in the sum of f700 to answer. John Ducrete, the cook who gave his employers the alarm, had only been employed yesterday by the Bertho lettes, was fonnd dead in his bed by Mrs. Adele Bertholette at 7:30 this morning. Gas was pouring out of tlie burner into the room with a hissing sound, and both windows wore shut. There is no doubt that death was ac oidential, as tho burner was a double one; and the unfortunate cook, who did not understand tbe arrangement, turned out only one of tbe burners and then calmly retired, white gas from the other humor was pouring a current of death in the air.—A'ei o York Gra h ic. is a Sold to Strangers. The worn-out blinds hang loosely. The paint is nearly gone. The creaking gate swings idly The old place looks forlorn; Tbe mvrtle mound Is grass-grown. That blossomed years ago, And one by one have vanished The flowers 1 used to know. Tbe ancient tree whose cherries "Rejoiced my childish heart Stand* leafless, grim and groaning; The arbor's dropped apart— That arbor In the garden Where honeysuckle twined; Tbe once broad path that led there Is now but 111 defined. Tbe dear, quaint, old mansion. It held our kith and kin For eighty years and over. Till they were gathered In. And now it goes to strangers; Its glories all are fled Since those who built the hearth-lire Are numbered with the dead; While we who love it fondly Must give a parting sigh, A farewell look, and sadly, Forever, pass it by. And still tbe fragrant lilies May bloom beside the door. But strangers' footsteps echo Across tbe oaken floor. — De Wynterwade. Love in Bird Life. What frauds birds are. They are represented in poetry as sweet, gush ing things, rising to greet the morn with melody and bursting forth in song on tbe slightest provocation. To road bird poetry one might consider them the most amiable of God's creatures, when the fact is, according to natural ists, the majority of 'sining birds are waspish and quarrelsome among them selves to a high degree. They behave worse during their singing season, which is also their time for mating, whan they are supposed to be flitting about in tbe most loving manner, ten derly beseeching each other to be "my valentine»" Those who have made a close study of birds will tell you that mates are woo, not by love bnt pitched battles, for the most part, tho stronger party carrying off the prize» Some of the more pugnacious often fight until they are kilted. Tho females battle furiously for the mates, who sit calmly bv observing the combat, quite unpre judiced and ready to say, May the best bird win. Sometimes tbe conqueror flies off with her dearly won valeutine, only to meet some superior female on he way who disputes the prize and wins it. If the superior female be a '^tar" singer in bird opera she probab ly has to support her husband, until she can get rid of him and snare an other.— 'Lexus Siftings. Scientific Experiments. The belief that human beings should steep with tbeir heads to tho north is said to have its foundation in scientific fact. The French Academy of Sciences has made experiments npon the body of a guillotined man which go to provo that each human system is in itself electric battery, one electrodo being represented by the bond, the other by the feet. The body was taken imme diately after death and placed on a pivot, to move as it might After some vacillation the head turned toward the north, the body then mained stationary. One of the an re pro fessors turned it half way around, but it soon regained its original position, and the same result was repeatedly obtained, until organic action finally ceased. The Cigarette Eye. A New York oculist says that the greatest enemy to the eyes of young men is the cigarette. Recently a dis ease has appeared among smokers which is dangerous and after careful investigation tlie best authorities, who for a long time wore at loss to under stand the peculiar malady havo traced it to the small paper covered tobacco sticks. It is now known ns tlie "ci garette eye," and can be cured only by long treatment.

The colonel had been jawing all the forenoon about "tlie Burned lazy nig gers," who were idling about in crowds, aud when he found about 2)0 at the depot lo see the train come in he boiled over. I told him it was the usual s ght of every southern town, and that it was none of his business wheth er they worked or played, but he went over and sat down on a barrel and consp red with himself bow to make them sweat. By ami by lie canio over, and climbing upon a bate of cotton bo said: "My friends, in coming np from Calera I lost my wallet out of the car window. Whoever finds the $150 in it can have half." He bad hardly ceased speaking when a hundred shouts arose, a mob moved down the track, and in another minute were alone. Next forenoon we passed some of them twenty-ono miles away, heads down and eyes searching the ground, and the colonel went to the rear of the car and encouraged them by calling: "I think it was about six miles far ther down,and you can have tbe whole of it if you find it."—Detroit Free Press.

BT MHS. 8. M. WALSU. Well, I never saw such a Tfianksgivlngl Why, the times are so hard, do you know We can't have » turkey or chicken — No—nor hardly indulge in a crow 1 For yesterday father was saying, "No poultry for dinner this year !" Then ho jusi talked first-rate io us children, Aud gently called mother "My dear;" And he said though he'd lost all his money And couldn't get much that wus good, He hoped we'd bo happy und thankful, Aud wo just shouted out that wo would. Well, now, ain't it queer how things hap pen ( For ouly just one year ago We lived at the top, let me tell you, And weut in for splendor and show I And 'twas only lust year at Thanksgiving Our table was gorgeous with plate, And every conceivable dainty That over was longed for we ate. But wo never once thought to be thankful. For we farad Just the same every day ; And we children were cross und complaiu teg, And wanted things just our own way. And father—I hardly dare tell you How angry and dreadful he growl For he sat loug at wine after dinner, And that waa the cause, we ail knew. And mother looked wretched aud tearful When we went in to say our good night, For father was raving so wildly That she hurried us out of his sight. Well, that wus last year; then the crush came. And father's great fortune was gone; And from all of his hundreds of thousands Not a dollar was left as his own. At first he just broke down entirely. But mother stood up like a man, And encouraged, and cheered him, and helped him;— I'll tell it as loud as I can,— Let a man only got into trouble— Then see what a woman will do! How quick she It forgot her own sorrows, And help him to carry his, too. Well, father took heart; now we're living In three little rooms all us four! But will you believe it! We never Were a quarter so happy be/oro! Every night we all kuoei down together, And father thanks God for us ult His "treasures on earth"—so he calls us, And preys that whatever befall, "We all may have treasures in heaven, Where naught can corrupt ur destroy — Prays for each one of us as we kneel there, His wife, and his girl and his boy. Well, I own to a weakness tor turkeys. And chickeus and ducks—(no not crows) ; And ! really enjoy a plum-pudding, And oysters and creams aud ail those. But whatever wo do have at our house Shall bo seasoned with love and good cheer; And if that doesn't make a Thanksgiving We'll try to do better next year ! THANKSGIVING THEN.
