t rperUiilly call your attention to the msnr

who realize the danger of cutting Into the ab
dominal cavity, ths largest and most vitally
sensitive of any In the body, stand aghast with
horror whan they contemplate the fart that
the abominations ot Jack the Ripper,
tinder the name of modern surgery, are
being enacted In their midst every day
in cases, too, where neither the conditions of
the disease nor the nature of the Injuries to
the patient Justify It. and they feel assured
that It requires only your attention to be drawn
to this matter forcibly to convince you that
acme check must be placed on those who. with
out the most urgent cause, would have recourse
to it. The argument ot those who sanction the
operation Is. that antiscptle surgery mlnl
tnlzea the danger from It. but this argument
is not borne out by experience, as
tho deaths from rutting into the abdom
Inol cavity, whether caused by the
knife of the assassin or tho blade of the sur
geon, are almost equally fatal. Nature can not
stand the shock of having the important organs
contained In the abdomen tampered with, nnd
it should not be done except under tho g'-.vest
Circumstances. In the name. then, of hnrianlty
We aslt you to place some safeguards which
Will protect the unfortunate sufferers from the
operation, unless where recommended by two

Dr. O'Reilly explains that ho has no par
ticular case in mind, but that he has learned of.
Various cases of laparotomy which resulted
fatally during his practice, which he could not
give to the public without betraying private
conlldence. He recommends that each physi
cian should state In the death certificate under
what circumstances laparotomy was justified.

nnd gave the president such a welcome
as he had seldom received. There was
a luncheon at the hotel and In the
evening a dinner tit the prefecture.
From the balcony of the prefecture
the president reviewed a large torch
light procession, which was followed
bv fireworks and an illumination.
Yesterday the president and his party
paid a state visit to the exhibition in
the Pare de la 1 ete d Or. Afterward
the president held a reception nt the
prefecture. He planned to go to the
irand theater on the Place de la
Comedl last evening after the banquet
nt the chamber of commerce.
He was in a peculiarly happy mood
during the banquet, and was notice
ably elated at the cordiality of his re
ception, not only by the crowd outside
the building, but also by the guests
within. He was cheered incessantly
from the moment he left the chamber
of commerce until he took the carriage
for the theater.
When Santo was within a few feet of
the carriage he waved a paper as If In
tending to present a petition, and thus
threw off their guard the persons near
est to the president. He was seized
ust as he was about to jump from the
step, and had but half drawn the dag
ger. The demonstrative enthusiasm of the
crowd caused the confusion which gave
Santo his opportunity, us he was able
to push his way forward quite un
noticed until at the step of the carriage.
As Santo sprang away from the car
riage step and tried to escape he was
seized and surrounded. Hut for th
prompt interference of the police he
would have been torn nnd trampled to
death on the spot. As soon as the
police extricated him from the hands
of his captors they hurried him off to
the station house.
The president had repeated hemor
rhages after he was taken to the pre
fecture. He sank gradually, but stead
ily until 12:45 o'clock this morning
when he died. Mme. Carnot nnd her
two sons left Paris at 11:59 o'clock last
evening by special train for Lyons. All
the ministers who could not go to
Lyons with the president were in

Probably the most glaring outrage con

Colorado state national guard, who waa

This order seems to have been obeyed

A BABYLONIAN TRADITION.
Furious Beliefs Concerning tho Eanas
a learned Babylonian,
who wrote about the year 880 U. C. , tha
following enrious account of creation
la tAkii! "In the bctrinning all waa
darkness and water, and therein were
crcnerated monstrous animals ana men
of strange and peculiar form. Some ol
these latter were mennne cream
with two wings, and somo even with
four. Some had one head ana m
faces; others two hcada with a single
face between. 8ometlmes a singio
body would have heads both ot tno
male and the female. Besides tho
above there were men with heads and
horns like goats, men with hoofs like
horses, and some with the upper par
of a man Joined to the lower parts of a
horse, like centaurs. Then there were
bulls with wings and human heads,
dogs with four bodies and with fishes
tails, men and horses with dogs' heads,
creatures with heads and bodies like
horses, but with claws like lions and
tails like fish. Besides these there
were other monsters showing a mixture
of the forms of various beasts. More
over there were monstrous fish and rep
tiles and divers other creatures which
had borrowed something from each
other's shapes; of aU of which the like
nesses are still preserved in the templo
of lielus. A woman ruled all
these monsters and her name waa
Omorka, which Is the same as Chaldce
Thalatth and the C.rcek Thalassa.
Then Belus appeared. He split the
woman in twain, and of one half of her
he made the heavens and of the other
half the earth, nnd the monsters which
she had ruled he caused to perish.
And he split the darkness and divided
the heavens from tho earth, and put
all the world in order. Belus then com
manded one of the gods to cut off his
head nnd to mix the blood which
flowed forth with the earth, and to
form man nnd beast therefrom. So
man was made intelligent, and was a
partaker of wisdom. Likewise Belus
made the stars, the sun, the moon nnd
the planets." St. Louis Republic.
THE HIGHLAND COSTUME.
How It Was Introduced Anions the Early
The first reference to Highland cos
tume occurs in the Saga of Magnus
Barefoot. King of Norway, 1093-1103,
written by Snorro Sturleson, who was
reared with the children of that mon
arch's daughter. Here it is stated that
Magnus and his men, on their return
from a marauding expedition to tho
.vest of Scotland, "brought with them
great deal of the habits and fashions
of clothing of these western parts.
They went about the streets with bare
legs, nnd had short kirtles and over
cloaks, and therefore his men eallel
him Magnus Barefoot or Bareleg."
In the thirteenth century we seem to
have something like a first reference
actual tartans in the statutes of tho
hurch of Aberdeen, which provide
that "all ecclesiastics are to In? suitably
ppareled. avoiding red. green, and
striped clothing, and their garments
hall not be shorter than the middle or
the leg." But it should be noticed that
the word "tartar." which occurs in the
fifteensh century, in the accounts of
the lord high treasurer of Scotland,
nnd which was regarded, by both Borth-
wick an-.l Pinkerton, as meaning tartan,
vallv indicates, as pointed out by Ir.
Dickson, a fabric of eastern origin, fre
quently "variant or snot, me warp
and woof being of contrasting colors.
We find, however, a true reference to
tartan, in the same accounts, in tho
following ei'iiturv: for in August. 153,
there appears an entry for "iij. elnis
of Behind tartane to be hoiss to tho
kingis grace." these "hoiss"' or trews
id-inir evidently intended to be worn
with "line sehort Heland eoit." ac

Old Holland Bong.
Some of the old Dutch nursery'
rhymes and songs brought to New York
by settlers of the early seventeenth
century are '11 in use among their de
scendants here and among the kin left
behind in Holland. A New Yorker
traveling in Europe fell In with a Hol
lander and recited to him, as well as ho
ouM recall it. a Dutch lullaby long
used in the family of the American.
The Dutchman instantly recognized the
song as the lullaby he had heard in
childhood, furnished a translation, nnd
was so delighted to meet one of his own
race from over-seas that he insisted
that the American should pause in his
journey and visit the home of his chance
icquaintance. N. Y. Sun.
