Dr.. H. L. Nletert, superintendent of
the, St. Louis city hospital, has performed one oi the most remarkable
operations ever recorded In the annals
of surgery. It consisted of taking
>three stitches in the heart of Philip
Gunn, who had been stabbed In a
brawl. The point of the knife blade
had entered the right ventricle and
had pierced .to the cavity of the heart.
The knife entered' the heart obliquely
and the result was that the opening
between the cavity and the pericardium, or covering of the heart, was lip
shaped on both sides.
The wound acted as a valve and at
each pulsation of thb blood through the
heart but a small quantity was let
ttrrough the artificial opening. The
task of stitching the wound waa difficult Dr. Nietert flrat removed fe section of the breastbone, exposing the
pericardium. The motion of the heart
can not be repressed and be was forced
to make the stitches while the organ
was shifting about. It required three
stitches to effectually close the gap.
This delicate operation finished,   the

spent three minutes in the place and got

failed to get any clue as to the identity or
whereabouts of the men.   They were evidently   experts in the holdup   business,
working quietly and rapidly.

Pittsburg, April 21.—This city is the center of a widespread and disastrous storm.
For a radius of 150 miles in western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and northern West
Virginia rain or snow has been falling almost without Intermission for three duys.
Mountain streams have become torrents,
creeks are swollen and out of their banks,
and the big rivers are oceans of turbulent
water. Flood records, it is expected, will
be broken before the water subsides. The
financial loss can not be estimated. In addition to the hundreds of thousands and
perhaps of millions of dollars it will cost lo

AtScoville, the home of the Pressed Steel
Car company, the town is completely surrounded by water. The workers and their
families constitute a community of several
thousand persona.
Wheeling, W. Vu., fears the most disastrous Hood in its history. The weuthcrwist*
say the river will make a new high record
at that point. The mountain streams of
the state are gushing down with resistless
force. Behind this comes the Hood tide of
the Ohio, fed by the Monongahela, Allegheny, Beaver und other tributaries. From
43 to 50 feet of water is feared at Wheeling,
which means an immense loss of property.
In many parts of Pennsylvania and Ohio
piobably the heaviest storm ever known at
this season of the year has tieen raging for
two days. At Oil City the oil exchange
went out of business temporarily because it
was impossible to secure quotations from
New York, l'ittsburg and other points. On
one railroad in Ohio passenger trains are
stalled and engines sent to their assistance

wait with a hope for a speedy turn of the
weather. In the meantime the passengers
must depend on nearby fanners for sufficient food to keep them from starvation.
The big manufacturing plants in this city
have suffered severely. The cost of repairs
is but a small item in comparison to the delay in filling the orders with which all the
plants are crowded.
The iron mills along the rivers were early
alllicicd and one by one were compelled to
shut down.
A widespread and disastrous Hood has inundated all the lowlands in western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and northern West
Virginia. Streams, both great and -mull.
have passed the Hood line and are still rising. Pittsburg is the center of the storm-
stricken district and the effects are probably worst in its immediate vicinity. Rain
has been fulling in and for many miles
around Pittsburg for 00 hours add all precipitation records are broken. .Parker's
Landing, up the Allegheny, reports nearly
four incites, and Greensboro, on the Monongahela river, over three inches. Down the
Ohio over four inches fell at Wood Junction und about three and a half inches at
Beaver. West and north of Pittsburg heavy
falls of wet snow are reported. Up the Allegheny river reports come of two feet of
snow on the level st many places. This had
the effect of breaking down telegraph wires
and crippling railroad service. Mails are
either, delayed for hours or not arriving at
Business, religious services, comfort and
health are at the mercy of the storm. Several narrow escapes from death have been
icportcd and it is not improbable that when
the flood subsides it muy reveal a number
of bodies.
Steam and electric railroad tracks are
buried under thousands of tons of earth
washed down the hillsides, and in some
cases the trucks have lieen moved. Where
the snow and sleet prevailed telegraph
wires and poles went down under the burden and costly ruilroud and other bridges

Pittsburg, April 22.—The most widespread and destructive storm, from a
material point of view, has passed. It

Caused   by   an   Impure  Condition
of the   Blood—How It   May
Be Permanently Cured.
From the Mirror, Mani-hnlrr, N. B.
Although rheumatism is one of the
most painful and ! dangerous of the
many troubles which afflict mankind,
it can be permanently cured if a proper course of treatment is taken. The
real cause of rheumutism is the presence of acid in the blood and the
only cure is to purify, nourish and
strengthen this vital fluid. The best
specific yet discovered for this purpose
is Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pule
People and tho number of cures they
have effected in cases of this stubborn
disease is wonderful Mrs. S. D.

Tradition saya "woman must suffer," and young women are so taught.
There is a little truth and a great deal
of exaggeration in this. If a young
woman suffers severely she needs treatment, and her mother should see that
ahe frets it.
Many mothers hesitate to take their
daughters to a physician for examination : but no mother need hesitate to
write freely about her daughter or
herself to Mrs. Pinkham's Laboratory
at Lynn, Mass., and secure from a
wuiii ;n the most efficient advice without charge.

The skin la the seat of an almost end-

by various names, but are all due to the
same cause, acid and other poisons in
the blood that irritate and interfere with
the proper action of the skin.
To have a smooth, soft skin, free from
all eruptions, the blood must be kept pure
and healthy. The many preparations of
arsenic and potash and the large number
of face powders and lotions generally
used in this class of diseases cover up
for a short time, but cannot remove permanently the ugly blotches and the red,
disfiguring pimples.

decision was that Limburger cheese

In butter and cheese Is not a public
nuisance which the courts will abate,
at the suit of adjoining property-owners, and this although the cheese la
kept In enormously large quantities.
In a dissenting opinion died by Judge
Hatch, however, the following language Is used: "The odor from Limburger cheese, when It Is given a fair opportunity to spread itself. Is overwhelming and unless the olfactory
sense be educuted to the liking or deadened to Its presence, It Is about as offensive an odor as can greet the olfactory nerve of human beings. That the
premises arc Inhabitable in Its continued exposed presence will not be generally believed and when It is combined
with the odorlferousnees arising from
the cheese, we can readily see that a
stench can be produced by the side of
which the smell of hogpens and slaughterhouses might be regarded as delicate perfumery. It Is enough to say
that language falls In description of
such an odor and It Is evident that the
witnesses for the plaintiff were baffled
In their attempt by lack of power to describe the overwhelming presence. It
needs no occult power to understand
that only a small quantity of Limburger cheese Is necessary to fill the atmosphere with smell. We have seen a
single wagon, containing a large quantity, drive people from the street along
which It passed and we can readily understand that by constant use the wagons come to have a distinctive smell
entirely their own."

THE after-effects of the grip are often disastrous.   It Is commonly
known to the medical fraternity that the numerous ailments
and complications which follow the grip are apt to be more serious
than the acute stage of the disease.
Some people have the grip very lightly.    They may be confined
to the house only a day or two and yet a long train of disagreeable,
dlsabl'ng symptoms follow.    All sorts of tonics and stimulating
remsdia have been devised to meet this condition.   None of them
can compare In results with Peruna.
