Mr. Howe was under tno influence of nn anesthetic for an hour. The tumor , which is described by the sur geons as a tubercular growth or enlargement of ono of the principal glands , proved to bo as largo as an ordinary hcn'.i egg. It had grown downward and Inward and in order to remove it It was necessary to expose the Jugular vein for several iuches. The physi cians who performed the operation state that the tumor would have been attached to the jugular vela In another thirty days and that In that event the removal would bays been fatal. Mr , Howe stood the dangerous operation remarkably well.
