'  A Manilla Newspaper.Reaches Nelson,  The first copy of a Manilla newspaper  to reach Nelson is named The American,  and is dated December 0th. It. is well  filled with advertisements, one of them a  full-page announcement of the arrival of  an unlimited quantity of Sehlitz beer.  The following appears as an editorial:  "The excellent manner in which this  city is conducted by the provost marshal  department deserves special commendation. Here is a cosmopolitan city of 850,-,  000 inhabitants, citizens of, various nations, a great many unused to the  civilizing influences of the United States  or Europe, yet there is less; disturbance  here than :in any city of its size in the  States. Everybody is orderly, and if occasionally a slight disturbance breaks  out, it is soon put down by the efficient  provost guard. Proprietors of saloons  have been.so well instructed that no one  presumes to keep open after 10 p.m. The  soldiers doing police;duty are. a credit to  the unifor.ih' they wear, while the officers'  are always polite and ready to listen to  the complaints of: the humblest native!

'I  >  Copper Predominant.  All of the'governments have fallen back  upon copper, or compositions in which  copper is the predominant metal, for  sheathing their warships. .Electroplating  the bottoms of ships with copper has recently been . experimented extensively  with,-and this* does.away with" many of  the old objections to copper sheathing.  Where the copper plates were nailed on  the slripsv "pitting" nearly always started  at th�� nail 'hole's. If the salt- watgr was  allowed t0 enterther&, even in the smallest  quantity, corrosion would begin at once,  and in a short time do great damage to  the steel hull. In eiectrdplatiiig, however,  the copper sheathing-, is put on in one unbroken massj and there is no danger from  "pitting." \yiien the whole surface has  been electroplated with copper a smooth  and unbroken surface is presented, and it  fits so closely that the sheathing cannot  bo removed without sometimes clipping  off the iron.   Gold Mining Around Nelson.  Mayor Neelands has let a contract to  "Bob" Nelsou for the driving of 50 feet of  tunnel on the Princess claim. The Princess is about four miles from Nelson on the  Hall Mines wagon road, and is about two  claims distant from the California. Work  on the California has beeu suspended  owing to some difficulty Which the boys  had with the man left in charge of the  property by Hugh Sutherland. When  the meu made their complaint to Sutherland, he discharged them all and closed  the property down for the winter. A  cleanup at the Athabasca is expected in a  few days. During the month the company's 10-stamp mill has been keptsteadily  running on ore which those connected  with the property say will average $50 to  the ton. As the stamps have a capacity  of from 2 to 2-i tons each per day, the  value of the cleanup from the month's  milling should represent a good round  figure.  Bank of Montreal Building.

Several "shipments of an average  value of $1S,000 per carload have been  made each week, and the indications for  the month, are that the shipments will  exceed $300,000 in value.  Tamarack is Making Steady Shipments.  Messrs. Davey &Long, of the Tamarack  mine near Y!mir, have been making regular shipments from that property to the  Northport smelter, the entries being  made at the outport of Waneta. During  the past two weeks they have shipped in  all 105 tons, the customs valuation of  which was $3102. Of this the silver value  was $252, the remainder being gold.

Yesterday morning about 2 o'clock, as  the steamer Slocan was ou her regular  trip from Rosebery to Slocan City, having a transfer barge in tow, a deckhand  named John Evans was missed. The  steamer was at once stopped, a boat was  lowered, and diligent search was made  with searchlights for the missing man.  His cap was found near the place where  he was first missed, but further than this  the search,was unsuccessful. As to how  the accident occurred nothing is known,  but it is thought by. the officers of the  steamboat that in passing from the barge  to the deck the unfortunate mail mtiy  have slipped and fallen into the water.  The deceased was about 25 years of age  and had worked several months on the  steamer.   The Two Friends Mine.  A force of men are breaking a trail to  the Two Friends mine, on Springer creek,  Slocan district, and the ore now on the  dump will be rawhided to Slocan City for  shipment to the Trail smelter. A tunnel  has beeu run through the Two Friends  ground to strike the vein on the Bank of  England, which it is expected will be  reached in About 15 feet.

JANUARY 21, 18!)!)  When little more than a hamlet, the  postoffice authorities decided that Nelson  could pet aloug during the winter mouths  with a mail every two weeks.   The people  then  residing   in  Nelson   thought  they  were entitled to a mail once a week ; bub  it was found useless to argue the matter.  The question was solved, however, by the  people paying for the extra service themselves.   This they did gracefully, and the  service  was as  prompt   as it is   today,  even though  tho mail was packed over  trails on horseback from Marcus, in the  state of Washington,  a distance of 120  miles.   The people are now clamoring for  a 7-day a week service from the south, as  it seems  the mails for Kootenay points  are held up at Northport, in the state of  Washington,  over Sunday,  because our  postoffice department refuses to pay the  railway company for more than a 6-day  service.   Those that help themselves are  best   helped,    therefore   let   our   people  "chip in," as they did in the winter of  ��� 1S00-91, and pay for the extra seftyit'e/"  Tun Tribune will contribute $J0 a. nlotilii.  towards  the~expeu.se,  the money fcB��Bj��!

In the year 3882  .the Sierra Grauda mine of New Mexico  took out one chunk weighing over 107GOO  ' pounds   aiid   the    estimated   value   was  * about $S0,OO0.   'A few days prior to taking  out the big chunk 1 shipped one from the  same   mine   to   the  Denver    exposition  weighing 010 pounds, and when melted up  -it���yielded���a-litble���over-$10,000:   rTtlftT  shipped  another chunk   to Philadelphia  weighing over 1200 pounds from tlie same  property.     The largest chunk   of silver  ever mined, so far as we have any record,  prior to the Sierra Granda chunk (called  Jackson's Baby), was mined in Zacatecas,  Mexico, many years ago, and contained a  fittle over #51,000 in silver.

Morrow in San Francisco Argonaut.]  Looking at my friend-as he lay upon  my bed, with the jeweled knife-handle  protruding from , his breast, I believed  that he was dying. Would the physician  never come?  "Pull it out, old fellow," begged the  ���sufferer through white, drawn lips, his  gasping voice being hardly less distressing than the unearthly look in his eyes.  ���,. "No, Arnold," said I. as I held his hand  and gently stroked his forehead. It may  have been instinct, it may have been a  certain knowledge of anatomy, that made  me refuse.  "Why not? It hurts," lie gasped. It  was pitiful to see him suffer, this strong,,  healthy, hare-brained, daring, reckless  young fellow.  The resident physiciau walked in���-a  tall, grave man, with gray hair. He went  to the bed, and I pointed to the knife-  handle, with its great.bold ruby in the  end and its diamonds aud emeralds alternating iu quaint designs in ,-the sides.  The physiqiaiv started.

There was a little  unsteadiness in his voice,  "How long can I live?" asked Arnold.  The physician thoughtfully stroked his  gray beard, "It depends," he flually  said ; "if the knife be withdrawn, you  may live three minutes;-if it be allowed  to remain you may possibly live an hour  or two not longer^"   .-..  Arnold never flinched. It was not the  first time that he had faced death, which  had no terrors for him.  ^^Thank���yonr=he-saidrsSiniling=faintly-  through his pain; "my friend here will  pay you. I have Some things to do. Let  the knife remain." He turned his eyes to  mine, and, pressing my hand, said affectionately: "And I thank you, too, old fellow, for not pulling it out."  The physician, moved by a sense of delicacy, left the room, saying: "Ring if there  is a change.   1 will be in the hotel office."  He had not goiie far when he turned  and came back.  "Pardon me," said hey "but there is a  young surgeon in the hotel who is said to  be a very skillful man. My specialty is  not surgfiry, but medicine. May I call  him?"  "Yes,"   said   I,   eagerly;  smiled and shook his head,  will not be time," he said,  to heed him, and directed  geon be called immediately.   I was writ*  ing at Arnold's dictation when  the two  men entered the room.  There was Something of nerve and  assurance in the young surgeon that  struck my attention. His manner, though  quiet, was bold and straightforward, and  his movements sure and quick. These are  general peculiarities of highly educated  young surgeons. This young man had  already distinguished himself in the performance of some difficult hospital laparotomies, and he was at that sanguine age  when ambition looks through the spectacles of experiment. And then, zeal and  ambition are often identical. Dr. Raoul  Entrefort was the new-comer's name. He  was a Creole, small and dark, and he had  traveled and studied in Europe.  "Speak freely," gasped Arnold, after Dr.  Entrefort made an examination.  "What think you, doctor?" asked Eutrefort of the older man.  "I think," was the reply, "that the  knife'blade has penetrated the ascending  aorta, about two inches above the heart.  So long as the blade remains in the wound  the escape of blood is comparatively  small, though certain; were the blade  withdrawn, the heart would almost instantly empty itself through the aortal  wound.  Meanwhile Entrefort was deftly cutting  away the white shirt and the undershirt,  and soon had the breast exposed. He examined the gem-studded hilt with the  keenest interest.  "you are proceeding on the assumption,  but, Arnold  "I teal' thei'e  But I refused  that the sur-  doctor,"he said, "that this  weapon  is a  knife.".' ' '  "Certainly," answered Dr. Rowell, smiling; "what else can it be?"  "It is a knife,"   faintly   interposed Arnold.  "Did   you   see   the   blade?"   Entrefort  asked him quickly.  "I.did���for a moment."  Entrefort   shot   a   quick    look   at Dr.  Howell and whispered :   "Then-if; is  not  suicide."   Dr. Rowell nodded.  "I must disagree with you, gentlemen,"  quietly remarked Entrefort; "this is not  a knife. He examined the handle very  narrowly. Not only was the blade entirely concealed from view within Arnold's body, but the blow had been so  strongly delivered that the skin was de-  presed by the guard. "The fact that it is  not a knife presents a very curious series  of facts and contingencies," pursued. En-  treforc, with amazing coolness, "some of  whiefpare, so far as I am informed, entirely novel in the history of surgery."  A quizzical expression, faintly amused  and.manifestly interested, was upon Dr.  Rowell s face.     "What  is   the weapon,  doctor?" he asked.  "A stiletto."  Arnold started. Dr. Rowell appeared  confused. "I must confess." he said, "my  ignorance of the-differences among these  penetrating weapons, whether dirks, daggers, stilettos, poniards, or bowie-knives."  "With .the-exception of the stiletto,"  explained Eutrefort, "all the weapons you  mention have one or two edges, so that in  penetrating they cut their way. A stiletto  is round, is ordinarily about half an inch  or less in diameter at the.guard, and  tapers to a "sharp point. It peuetrates  solely by pushing the tissues aside in all  directions. You will understand the importanceof that point." .  Dr. Rowell nodded, .more deeply interested than ever;'  "How do you know .that it is a stiletto,  Dr. Entrefort?"   I asked.

Dr..-  Rowell, though shpAyiug no, sign of  jealousy, epuld pot coflceal a look of iii-  crediility and also of paiir that, Entrefort  should offer any hope to the sufferer.  "With yd'ui! permission," said Eutrefort,  addressing Arnold, "I-will do what I ean  to save your life."  "You may," said the poor boy.  "But I shall have to hurt" you."  "Well."   ="Perhapscverymuchr" =���=������~^  "Well."  "And even if i succeed(the chance is one  iu a thousand) you will never- be a sound  man, and a constant and terrible danger  will always be present."  "Well?"  Entrefort wrote a note and sent it away  in haste by a bell boy.  "Meanwhile." he resumed, "your life is  in immineut danger from shock, and the  end may come in a few minutes or hours  from that cause. Attend without delay  to whatever matters may requre settling,  and D'r.8 Rowell," glancing at that gentleman, "will give you something to brace  you Up. I speak frankly, for I see that  you are a man of extraordinary nerve. Am  i right?"  "Be perfectly caudid," said Arnold.  Dr.   Rowell,  evidently   bewildered   by  his cyclonic youug associate, wrote a prescription, which I sent  by a  boy to be  filled.   With unwise zeal I asked Entrefort:  -"Is-there not dauger of lockjaw?"  "No," he replied; "there is not a sufficiently   extensive  injury   to    peripheral  nerves to induce traumatic tetanus."  I subsided. The man's cooluess and  promptness were amazing.  Dr. Rowell's mediciue came and I ad-  minstered a dose. The physician and the  surgeon then retired. The poor sufferer  straightened up his business. When it  was done he asked me :  "What is that crazy Frenchman going  to do to me?"  "I have no idea ; be patient."  In less than hour they returned, bringing with'them a keen-eyed, tall youug  man, who had a number of tools wrapped  in an apron. Evidently he was unused to  such scenes, for he became deathly pale  upon seeing the ghastly spectacle on- my  bed. With staring eyes and open mouth  he began to retreat towards the,door,  stammering: '���''-.:  "I���I cau'tdoit."  "Nonsense,   liippolyte !     Don't    be   a  baby.

Dr. Entrefort gave the nervous man a  drink of brandy, aud then said:  "No more nonsense, my boy; it must be  PERSAL BANK  OF CANADA  Capital, Paid Up  Reserve  $2,000,000  1,200,000  HEAD  OFFICE, TORONTO  D.

Gentlemen, allow me to introduce  Mr. liippolyte, one of the most original,  ingenious, and skilful machinists in the  country."  Hippolyte, being modest, blushed as he  bowed. In order to conceal his confusion,  he unrolled his apron on the table with  considerable noise of rattling tools.  "I.have to make some preparations before .you may begin, Hippolyte, and-T  want you to observe me, that you may  become used, not only to the sight of  fresh blood, but also, what is more trying,  the odor of it." '"���'..- ��  Hippolyte shivered. Entrefort opened  a case of surgical instruments.  "Now, doctor, the chloroform," he" said  to Dr. Rowell.  "I will not take it," promptly interposed  the sufferer; "I want to know when I  die."-  "Very well,"said Entrefort; "but you  have little nerve now to spare. We may  try it without chloroform, however. It  will be better if you can do. without. Try  your best to lie still while I cut."  "What are you going to do?" asked  Arnold.  "Save your life, if possible."  "How?   Tell me all about it."  "Must you know?"  "Yes."  "Very well then. The point of the stiletto has passed entirely through the  arota, which is the great vessel rising out  of the heart and carrying the aei'ated  blood to the arteries. If I should withdraw the weapon, the blood would rush  from the two holes in the aorta, and you  would soon be dead.

She was  not only .a strong women, but a desperate  onc> also."  "That will do," said Arnold. lie beckoned me to bend closer. "You must  wetch this man; he is dangerous."  "Then," resumed Entrefort, "I shall  tell you what I intend to dp. First, however, I must congratulate you on the fact  that, as the weapon may not be withdrawn, it did not enter the heart instead  of the aorta; for if left in the heart inflammation of the tissues would follow  and produce death. That danger exists  as it is. There will undoubtedly be in^  flammation of the aorta, which, if it persist, will cause a fatal aneurism by a  breaking down of the aortal walls; but  we hope, with help of your youth and  health, to check it.  "Auother serious difficulty is this :  With every inhalation, the entire thorax  (or bony structure of the chest) considerably expands. The aorta remains stationary. You will see, therefore, that as your  aorta and your breast are now held in relation to each other by the rigid stiletto,  the chest, with every inhalation, pulls the  aorta forward out of place about half an  inch. I am certain that it is doing this,  because there is no indication of an escape  of arterial blood into the thoracic cavity ;  in other words, the mouths of the two  aortal wounds have seized upon the blade  with a firm hold and thus prevent it from  slipping in and out. This is a very ifortu-  nate occurrence, but one which will cause  pain for some time. The aorta, you may  understand, pulls the heart backward and  forward with every breach you take, but  that organ, though now undoubtedly  much surprised, will accustom itself to its  new condition.  "What I fear, however, is the formation  of a clot around the blade. Yon see, the  presence of the blade in the aorta has already reduced theblood-earryingcapacity  of that vessel; a clot, therefore, need not  be very large to stop up the aorta, and of  course, if that shomld occnr, death would  %  m  m  /?\  m  q\  <n  *  $  to  to  to  /|\  q\  to  to  to  to  to  to  ���to  ifi  /fi  ifi"  /?i  to  to  to  to  /ftS|  ��������jV."Jy4ff-  Glassware..  9  We are now carrying a most complete line of Bar Supplies, including  all the latest styles of Whisky, Wine  and Beer glasses.

Arnold smiled faintly.  "But we should do our best to prevent  the formation of a clot," continued Entrefort ; "there are drugs which may be used  with effect."  "Are there more dangers?"  "Many more; sOme of the more serious  have not been mentioned. One of these  is the liability of the aorta! tissues pressing upon the weappn to relax their hold  and allpw the blade to slip. That would  let oufc the blood and cause death. I tun  uncertain whether the hold is now maintained by the pressure of the tissues or  the adhesive quality of the serum which  was set free by the puncture. I am convinced, though, that in either event the  hold is easily broken and that it may give  way at any moment, for It is under several  kinds of strains. Every time the heart  contracts and crowds the blood into the'  aorta, the latter expands a little, and  then contracts when the pressure is removed' Any unusual exercise or excitement produces stronger and quicker  heart-beats and increases the strain- on  the adhesion of the aorta to the weapon.  A fall, a jump, a blow on the chest���any  of these might so jar the heart and aorta  as to break the hold."  Entrefort stopped.  "Is that all ?" asked Arnold.  "No; but is not that enough ?"  "More than enough," said Arnold, with  a sudden and dangerous sparkle iu his  eye. Before any of us could think, the  desperate fellow had seized the handle  of the stiletto with both hands in a determined effort to withdraw it and die. I  had had no time to order my faculties to  the movement of a muscle, when Entrefort, with incredible alertness and swiftness, had.Arnold's wrists. Slowly Arnold  relaxed his hold.  "There, now I" said Entrefort, soothingly; "that was a careless act, and might  have broken the adhesion! You'll have  to be careful."  Arnold looked at him with a curious  combination of facial expressions.  "Dr. Entrefort," he said.  "Well ?"  "You are the devil."  Bowing profoundly, Entrefort replied:  "You give me too great honor"; then  lie whispered hurriedly to Arnold, " if you  do.that"'���vvith aunptipn  toward  the hilt  -7l'i";w;i.ll hayeihjsirhknged for murder."  .Afhbld',-'almbst.chb"kiug and with a look  Of horror, withdrew his hands,  took one  "of Inilie. in  both of .his, and placed them  on the pillow"abpve his head.  "I?rp^ceed with yOifr work," said he to  Entrefort.  , "Come closeiy Hibpblyte," said Eutrefort, "and "observe narrowly. Will you  Jdndly help niC, Dr. Rowell ?" The latter  had sat helpiesSi wondering.  Ehtrefdrib's hand was quick and sure,  and heHigedijEheikilifewith marvelous dexterity, 'Firsts'he made four equi-distant  incisions outward" from the guard and  just through the Skin. Arnold winced  and, held his breath, at" the first cut, but  sodn regained command of himself. Each  incision wag abbufrtvv-o inches long. Hip-  pdlyt^shuddered^iviatl'ttu'ned^aside- his-  head. Entrefort, whom nothing escaped,  said :  "Steady, Hippolyte! Watch."  . Quickly was the skin peeled back to the  limit of the incisions. This was excruciatingly painful. Arnold groaned, and  his hands became moist and cold. Down  went the knife into the flesh, and the  blood flowed freely; Dr. Rowell sponged  it off.  The swift knife went again at work.  Arnold's marvelous nerve was breaking  down. He clutched my hands with unconscious strength. His eyes danced.  His mind was weakening. Almost in a  moment the flesh had been cut away and  removed down to the bones, which wery  exposed���two ribs and the sternum. A  few quick cuts cleared the blade of the  weapon between the guard and the ribs.  "To work, Hippolyte���be quick !"  He had evidently been coached. With  slender, long-fingered hands, which trembled at first, he selected certain tools with  nice precision, made some quick measurements of the weapon and of the cleared  space around it, and began to adjust the  parts of a queer little machine.  "What "Arnold started to say,  bub  a deeper palor settled ou his face, his  hands relaxed, his voice was hushed, and  his eyes closed.  "Thauk God!" exclaimed Entrefort.  "He has fainted. He can't stop us now.  Quick, Hippolyte-!"  The machinist attached the queer little  machine to the handle of the weapon,  grasped the handle with his left hand,  and with his right began a series of short,  sharp, quick motions backward and for  ward.  "Hurry, Hippolpte!" cried Entrefort.  "The metal is very hard."  "Does it cut?"  "I can't see for the blood."  In a moment something snapped, Hip-  polite started���he was very nervous. He  removed the little machine.  "It is very hard," he said; "it breaks the  saws."  He adjusted another saw and went to  work. In a little while he picked up the  handle of the stiletto and laid it on the  table. He had cut it off, leaviug the  blade inside.'  "Good,   Hippolyte!"   exclaimed   Eutre-  , fort.   Almost in a minute the bright end  of the cut metal was closed from view by  the skin flap1-, and these sewed together,  and the blood wiped away'. * ,  Arnold returned to consciousness and  glanced down at his breast." He looked  puzzled. 'tj '  "Where's the thing?" he asked.  "Here's a part of it," explained Entrefort holding up the handle.  "And the blade "  "Is an irremovable part, of your internal machinery."  Arnold was silent.  "It had to be cut off," resumed Entre-  forf, "not only because it> woule be  troublesome and an undesirable- ornament, but also because it was necessary  to remove any possibility of withdrawing  it."  Arnold said nothing.   HHere is_a_prescdption,!lsaid-Entrel'oi'i :���  "take the medicine as directed for the  next ten years, without fail."  "What for? 1 see it contains muriatic  acid.',  "I may explain ten years fiom now."  "If I live."  "If you live."

SATURDAY. .JANUARY 21, 1S99  When little more than a hamlet, the  postoffice authorities decided that Nelson  could jret along during the winter mouths  with a mail every two weeks.   The people  then residing   in Nelson   thought  they  were entitled to a mail once a week ; but  it was found useless to, argue the matter.  The question was solved, however, by the  people paying for the extra service themselves.   This they did gracefully, and the  service  was as  prompt   as it is .today,  even though the mail was packed over  trails ou horseback from Marcus, in the  state of Washington,  a distance ot 120  miles.   The people are now clamoring for  a 7-day a week service from the south, as  it seems  the mails for Kootenay points  are held up at Norlhport, in the state of  Washington,  over Sunday,  because our  postoffice department refuses to pay the  railway company for juore than a 6-day  service.   Those that help themselves are  best   helped,   therefore   let   our   people  "chip in," as  they did in the winter of  1S90-9I,   and  pay  for   the  extra Service.  Tun TRiiiL-NE will con tribute $10 a month  towards  the expense, tbe+money to  be  -..-paid into  the Bank of Montreal for dis-  . bursement.   Surely the people of Kootenay are as public-spirited and as independent   now   as,,they   were   in   the  early  nineties;.     * ���_^      -*'   - '       >        ��� ���<  The Miner  of-^Nelson "is��� not satisfied  with the  way in which the postoflices iu  .Kootenay are run.

Jackson of Placerville, California,  writes the Mining and Scientific Press of ���  San Francisco the following regarding the  largest piece of silver ore mined.  I -wish   to   dispute   the   claim   of   the  ��� Smuggler mine  at Aspen,   Colorado,  as  having  taken   out  the largest   piece   of  silver ore ever mined.   Iu  the year 1882  ' ".the Sierra Grauda mine of New Mexico.'  took but one chunk  weighing over  10,000.  ' pounds   and   the    estimated   value   was  , about $S0,000.   A few days prior to taking \  ��� out the big chunk I shipped one from the  same  mine   to   the  Denver    exposition  weighing CIO pounds, and when melted_up^  "it-yielded   a little  over  $10,000.   I  also  shipped  another chunk   to Philadelphia  weighing over 1200 pounds from the same  property.     The largest chunk   of silver  ever mined, so far as we have any record,  prior to the Sierra Granda chunk (called  .Jackson's Baby), was mined in Zacatecas,  Mexico, many years ago, and contained a  little oy.er,$51s000 in silver.

Morrow in San I'Yancisco Argonaut.]  Looking at my friend as he lay upon  my bed, with the jeweled knife-handle  protruding from , his breast, I believed  that he was dying. Would the physician  never come?  "Pull it out, old fellow," begged the  sufferer through white, drawn lips, his  gasping voice being hardly less distressing than the unearthly look in his eyes.  ��� "No, Arnold," said I, as I held his hand  and gently stroked his forehead. It may  have been instinct, it may have been a  certain knowledge of anatomy, that made  me refuse.  "Why not? It hurts," he gasped. It  was pitiful to see him suffer, this strong,  healthy, hare-brained, daring, reckless  young fellow.  oThe resident physiciau walked in���a  tall, grave man, with gray hair. He went  to the bed, and I pointed to the knife-  handle, with its great bold ruby in the  end and its diamonds and emeralds alternating in quaint designs in the sides.  The physician?, started. . .He���felt4DAnipld'su  i/.Msalipd-dqoked.^  '^l{erjs\vasBhis1dojie?":Jieavsnk|djs:  "ed*.��:    _-��" "  lS.(;ojDj'g's1ltfT-^i  vy"du:^i��h^^  n; "I'/ifesji^Qjjliecf tjie p^hylsici'ah, ihesSi.tating:t  ���*'Spe&kiiid my presence, tli"eu,"��said my  friend; frfeaiMibth'iiifrV  It wa.s said in; his Old* itfiperipus way,  albTiough his suffering m��st h^ye" been  great.

There" was a little  ��� unsteadiness ih'his voices  "How long can Iiiye?" asked Arnold..  The physician, t hougirfcf nlly stroKediiis  gray heard. "It .depends," -he finally  said; ''if the knife be withdrawn, you  may live three minutes; if it be allowed  to remain you may. possibly live an hour  or two notjongw."   ���  Arnold never fliuqhed, It was not the  first time that he had faced death, which  had no terrors for him. ���>  = _^_  ���"Tlnruk~you7isih~e said, smiling faintly  through his pain; "my friend here will  pay you. 1 have Some things to do. Let  the knife remain." He turned his eyes to  mine, and, pressing my hand, said affectionately: "And I thank you, too, old fellow, for not pulling it out."  The physicians moved by a sense of delicacy, left the room, saying: "Ring if there  is a change.   I will be in the hotel office.'"  He toad'.not gone far when he turned  and came back.  !''Pardon me," said he, "but there is a  young surgeon in the hotel, who is said* to  be a very skillful man. -My specialty is  not stu'gery,  but medicine.   May I call  him ?*"  "Yes,"   said   I,-  Eagerly;  smiled and shook his head,  will not be timeY' he said,  to heed him, and directed  geon be called immediately,  ing at Arnold's dictation  when  the two  men entered the room.  There was something of nerve and  assurance in the young surgeon that  struck my attention. His manner, though  quiet, was bold aud straightforward, and  his movements sure and quick. These are  general peculiarities of highly educated  young surgeons. This young man had  already distinguished himself in the performance ot some difficult hospital laparotomies, and he was at that sanguine age  when ambition looks through the spectacles of experiment. And then, zeal and  ambition are often identical. Dr. Ilaoul  Entrefort was the newcomer's name. He  was a Creole, small and dark, and he had  traveled and studied in Europe.  "Speak freely," gasped Arnold, after Dr.  Entrefort made an examination.  "What think you, doctor?" asked Eutrefort of the older man.  "I think," was the reply, "that the  knife'blade has penetrated the ascending  aorta, about two inches above the heart.  So long as the blade remains in the wound  the escape of blood is comparatively  small, though certaiu; were the blade  withdrawn, the heart would almost instantly empty itself through the aortal  wound.  Meanwhile Entrefort was deftly cutting  away the white shirt and the undershirt,  and soon had the breast exposed. He examined the gem-studded hilt with the  keenest interest.  "You are proceeding on the assumption,  doctor,"-he said, "that this  weapon  is a  knife.",    ''  "Certainly," answered Dr. Howell, smiling; "what else can it be?"  "It is a knife," faintly interposed Arnold.  "Did you see the blade?" Entrefort  asked him quickly.  "I.did���for a moment."  Entrefort shot a quick look at Dr.  Howell and whispered : "Then it is not  suicide."   Dr. Rowell nodded.  "I must disagree with you, gentlemen,"  quietly remarked Entrefort; "this is not  a knife. He examined the handle very  narrowly. Nob only was the blade entirely concealed from view within Arnold's body, bub the blow had been so  strongly delivered that the skin was do-,  presed by the guard. "The fact that it is  not a knife presents a very curious series  of facts and contingencies," pursued. En-  treforr, with amazing coolness, "some of  which are, so far as I am informed, entirely novel in the history of surgery."  A quizzical expression, faintly amused  and manifestly interested, was upon Dr.  Howell's face. "What is the weapon,  doctor?" he asked.  "A stiletto."  Arnold started. Dr. Howell appeared  confused. "I must confess," he said, "my  ignorance of the differences among these  penetrating weapons, whether dirks, daggers, stilettos, poniards, or bowie-knives."  "With the exception of the stiletto,"  explained Eutrefort, "all the weapons you  mention have one or two edges, so that in  penetrating they cut their way. A stiletto  is round, is ordinarily about half an inch  or less iii diameter at the guard, .and  tapers to a "sharp point. It penetrates  solely by pushing the tissues aside in all  directions. You will understand the importance of that point."  Dr. Rowell nodded,.more deeply interested than ever. ��� ;  "How do you know that it is a stiletto,  Dr.:Entrefort?".��� XaskecL. -4;-';";.'v"^ :;.-��� ���.8:n..'  lijTlie^KttiYi^  of4-taha\lapidarrTes^  :Uyere :s^t*-nilQ'eh  ��s��hnu1;u^rSide* fund*Sfi$J�� ter^han" te  �����.*����� that.i!>_'&'Vwj"A.v,y�� &.>^.,��>,"*."i: .,.-'.-;'"���-(!���v.*" i<k -,-i  Capital,  Reserve  Paid Up  $2,000,000  1,200,000  HEAD  OFFICE, TORONTO  D.

Gentlemen, allow me to introduce  Mr. Hippolyte, one of the most original,  ingenious, and skilful machinists in the  country."  Hippolyte, being modest, blushed as1 he  bowed. In order.to conceal his confusion,  lie uurolled his apron on the table with  considerable noise of rattling tools.  "I.have to make some preparations before you may begin, Hippolyte, and ^T  want you to observe me, that you may  become used, not only to the sight of  fresh blood, but also, what is more trying,  the odor of it."  Hippolyte shivered. Entrefort opened  a case of surgical instruments.  "Now, doctor, the chloroform," he said  to Dr. Row-ell.  "I will nob take it," promptly interposed  the sufferer; "I want to know when I  die."  "Very well,"said Entrefort; "but you  have little nerve now to spare. AVe may  try-dt- without chloroform, however. If  will be better if you can do without. Try  your best to lie still while I cut."  "What are you going to do?" asked  Arnold.  "Save your life, if possible."  "How?   Tell me all about it."  "Must you know?" '  "Yes."  "Very well then. The point of the stiletto has passed entirely through the  arota, which is the great vessel rising out  of the heart and carrying the aerated  blood to the arteries. If I should withdraw the weapou, the blood would rush  from the two holes in the.'aorta, and you  would soon be dead.

"But I shall have to hurt you."  _"Well." _:   "FeFliaps very much."  "Well,"  "And even if i sueceed(the chance is one  iu a thousand) you will never be a sound  man, and a constant and terrible chlnger  will always be present."  "Well?"  Entrefort wrote a note and sent it away  in haste by a bell bOy.  "Meanwhile." he resumed, "your life is  in imminent danger from shock, and the  end may fiOine in a few minutes or hours  from that cause. Attend without delay  to whatever lnatters inay reqitre settling,  and Dr. Rowell," glancing at that gentleman, -'will give you something to brace  you up. I s'peak fraukly, for I see that  you area man of extraordinary nerve. Am  I right?"  "Be perfectly candid," said Arnold.  Dr. Rowell, evidently bewildered by  his cyclonic young associate, wrote a prescription, which I seiit by a ;boy to be  filled. With unwise zeal I asked Entrefort:  "Is-there not dauger of lockjaw?"  "No," he replied; "there is not a sufficiently extensive injury to peripheral  nerves to induce traumatic tetanus."  I subsided. The man's coolness and  promptness were amazing.  Dr. Rowell's medicine came and I ad-  minstered a dose. The physiciau and the  surgeon then retired* The poor sufferer  straightened up his business. When it  was clone he asked me :  "What is that crazy Frenchman going  to do to me?"  "I have no idea ; be patient."  In less than hour they returned, bringing with them a keen-eyed, tall youug  man, who had a number of tools wrapped  in an apron. Evidently he was unused to  such scenes, for he became deathly pale  upon seeing the ghastly spectacle on my  bed. With staring eyes and open mouth  he began to retreat towards the,door,  stammering :  "I���I cau't do it," .  "Nonsense, Hippolyte ! Don't be a  baby. Why, man, it is a case of life and  death 1"  "But���look at his eyes! he is dying!"  Arnold smiled. "1 am not dead, though,"  he gasped.  "1-���.1 beg your pardon," said Hippolyte.  Dr. Entrefort gave the nervous man a  drink of brandy, and then said:  "No more nonsense, my boy; it must be  .'the:Stiletto";^dSe,?naiH?,pner;ri^lali^nutlya?ih\%He?  arota* ��� Many diihcultiesatf obnce..?preseubi  itheiiisel,yesj,Jand>do>nqt" winder .ati���Di;i  "RowelJ'S iool^pl^Vi^risea^  ,'' " Tha-t; ��gen"tle'h��rtn/��rsmjjei^';,aud1;.'Shod^^  1   lleaU', SS1     - �� - ��"     ��-D       n'     -��     "a       ."^o "   -0OnDnD'.'   a'  n^  ���   \BD   nD"nB    ��3D'.n.^  -#��� ''It?' is-,a desperate.-chance, ^eantinueq."

"Let hiinproGeed," Said Arhdld, <vho,  bv a, remarkable effort, had calmed him^  se"lf.  "Not if the subject is painful," Entre?  foi't said.  "It is not," protested Arnold. '"WJiy  do you think the bioVv was struck by a  woman?"  "Because, first, no man capable of being  an assassin would carry so gaudy and  valuable a weapon; second, no man would  be stupid_enough^to_carry^so^antiquat.ed^  and inadequate a thing as a stiletto, wheD  that most murderous aud "satisfactory of  all penetrating and cutting Weapons, the  bowie-knife, is happily available. She-  was a strong woman, too, for it requires  a good hand to drive a stiletto to the  guard, even though it miss the sternum  by a hair's breadth and slip between the  ribs, for the muscles here are hard and  the intercostal spaces narrow. She was  not only a strong wOliien, but a desperate  one, also."  "That will do," said Arnold. He beckoned me to bend closer. "You must  wetch this man; he is dangerous."  "Then," resumed Entrefort, "I shall  tell you What I intend to do. First, however, I must congratulate you on the fact  that, as the weapon may not be withdrawn', it did not enter the heart instead  of the aorta; for if left in the heart inflammation Of the tissues would follow  and produce death. That dauger exists  as it is. There will Undoubtedly be inflammation of the aorta, which, if it persist, will cause a fatal aneurism by a  breaking down of the aortal walls; but  we hope, with help of your youth and  health, to check it.  "Another serious difficulty is this :  With every inhalation, the entire thorax  (or bony structure of the chest) considerably expands. The aorta remains stationary. You will see, therefore, that as your  aorta and your breast are now held in relation to each other by the rigid stiletto,  the chest, with every inhalation, pulls the  aorta forward out of place about half an  inch. I am certain that it is doing this,  because there is no indication of an escape  of arterial blood into the thoracic cavity ;  in other words, the mouths of the two  aortal wounds have seized upon the blade  with a firm hold and thus prevent it from  slipping in ancl out, This is.a very ffortu-  nate occurrence, but one which will cause  pain for some time. The aorta, you may  understand, pulls the heart backward and  forward with every breach you take, but  that organ, though now undoubtedly  much surprised, will accustom itself to its  new condition.  "What I fear, however, is the formation  of a clot around the blade. You see, the  presence of the blade in the aorta has already reduced the blood-carrying capacity  of that vessel; a clot, therefore, need not  be very large to stop up the aorta, and of  course, if that should occnr, death  would  to  to  to  /$*  to  to  to  to  to  to  m  m  f$\  to  to  to  to  *  /?\  /f\  to  to  k\  to  ���/fV.  /ft  to  /f\  to  to  Glassware...

But the .clofc, if one form, may be  "dislbclged" by ."the .heart and driven i'or-  "wardCih which eveht it may lodge in any  /ohepf^lfche "huuierods branches from the  aorta iihdlproo'h.c.e results more or less  "seriotis, possiblyiia-tal. If for instance, it  "shl.uid" choke either the right or the left  caitoidther.ewould ensue atrophy of one  side"of Ihe brain and consequently uaraly-  .S.is'o|'",h"a;lffthe entire body ; but it is possible that in time there would come about  a secondary cir-culation from the other  sidejofthe brain and thus restore a healty  condition.. Or the Clot, which in passing  always from lai'ger arteries to smaller,  must unavoidably find one not large  enough to eafi-y it* and must lodge somewhere, may either necessitate amputation  of One of the four limbs, or lodge itself so  deep jyithin theJj;ody that it can not be  reached witlifhe knife. You are beginning to realize some of the dangers which  await you."  Arnold smiled faintly,  "But we should do our best to prevent  the formation of a clot," continued Entrefort ; "there are drugs which may be used  with effect."  "Are there more dangers'?"  "Many more; some of the more serious  have not been mentioned. One of these  is the liability of the aortal tissues pressing upon the weapon to relax their hold  and allovV the blade to slip. That would  let out the bloOd and cause death. I am  uncertain whether the hold is now maintained by the pressure of the tissues or  the adhesive quality of the serum which  was set free by the puncture, lam convinced, though, that in either event the  hold is easily broken and that it may give  way at any moment, for it is under .several  kinds of strains. Every time the heart;  contracts and crowds the blood into the*  aorta, the latter expands a little, and  then contracts when the pressure is removed* Any unusual exercise or excitement produces stronger and quicker  heart-beats and increases the strain on  the adhesion of the aorta to the weapon.-  A fall, a jump, a blow ou the chest���any  of these might so jar the heart and -aorta  as to break the hold."    ���--���-���-  Entrefort stopped.  "Is that all ?" asked Arnold.  "No; but is not that enough ?"  "More than euough," said Arnold, with  a sudden and dangerous sparkle in his  eye. Before any of us could think, the  desperate fellow had seized the handle  of the stiletto with both hands in a determined effort to withdraw it and die. I  had had no time to order my faculties to  the movement of a muscle, when Entrefort, with incredible alertness and swiftness, had.Arnold's wrists. Slowly Arnold  relaxed his hold.  "There, now!" said Entrefort, soothingly; "that was a careless act, and might  have broken the adhesion! You'll have  to be careful."  Arnold looked at him with a curious  combination of facial expressions.  "Dr. Entrefort," he said.  "Well?"  "You are the/tfevil."  Bowing profoundly, Entrefort replied:  "You give ri>e too great honor" ; then  he whispered {hurriedly to Arnold, " if you  do that"���with a motion toward  the hilt  ���"I will have her hanged for murder."  Arnold, almost choking and with aiook  of horror, withdrew his hands, took one  of mine iu both ot his, and placed them  on the pillow above his head.  "Proceed with your work," said he to  Entrefort.  "Come closer, Hippolyte," said Eutrefort, "and observe narrowly. Will you  kindly help me, Dr. Rowell ?" The latter  had sat helpless, wondering.  Entrefort's hand was quick and sure,  and he used the knife with marvelous dexterity. First he made four equi-distant  incisions outward from the guard and  just through the skin. Arnold winced  aud held his breath at the first cut, but  soon regained command of himself. Each  _jncisip_n_w_as about two inches long. Hip-,  polyte shuddered and turned aside his  head. Entrefort, whom nothing escaped,  said :  "Steady, Hippolyte!   Watch,"  Quickly was the skin peeled back to the  limit of the incisions. This was excruciatingly painful. Arnold groaned, and  his hands became moist and cold. Dowii  went the knife into the flesh, and the  blood flowed freely; Dr. KoWell sponged  it off.  The swift knife went -again at work.  Arnold's marvelous nerve  was breaking'1  down.   He clutched nly hands  with  u-n��-���  conscious  .streugth.      His   eyes  danced.  His mind  was weakening.   Almost iii a  moment the flesh had been cut away and  removed down to the  bones, which were  exposed���two ribs aud  the sternum.   A  few quick cuts cleared  the  blade of the  weapon between the guard and the ribs.  "To work, Hippolyte���be quick !"  He had evidently been coached. With  slender, long-fingered hands, Which trembled at first, he selected certain tools with  nice precision, made some quick measurements of the weapon and of the cleared  space around it, and began to adjust the  parts of a queer little machine.  "What " Arnold started to say,  but  a deeper palor settled on his face, his  hands relaxed, his voice was hushed, and  his eyes closed.  "Thank God!" exclaimed Entrefort.  "He has fainted. He can't stop us now.  Quick, Hippolyte!"  The machinist attached the queer little  machine to the handle of the weapon,  grasped the handle with his left hand,  and with his right began a series of short,  sharp, quick motions backward and for  ward.  "Hurry, Hippolpte!" cried Entrefort,  "The metal is very hard."  "Does it cut?"  "I can't see for the blood."  In a moment something snapped, Hip-  polite started���he was very nervous. He  removed the little machine.  "It is very hard," he said; "it breaks the  saws."  He adjusted another saw and went to  work. In a little while he picked up the  handle of the stiletto and laid it on the  table. He had cut it off, leaviug the  blade inside.  "Good, Hippolyte!" exclaimed Entrefort. Almost in a minute the bright end  of the cut metal was closed from view by  the skin flaps, and these sewed together,'  and the blood wiped away.  Arnold returned  to consciousness and ~  glanced   down at his  breast.   He looked  puzzled. ,-  "Where's the thing?" he asked.  "Here's a part of it," explained Entrefort holding up the handle.  "And the blade '"  "Is an irremovable part of your internal machinery."  Arnold was silent.  "It had to be cut off," resumed TSntre-  forf, "not only because it woule he  troublesome and an iindesirable ornament, but alsobecau.se it was necessary  to remove any possibility of withdrawing  it."  Arnold said nothing.  ���^Norois-a-prescriptionr^-said-Entreforf;���  "take the medicine as directed  for   tho  next ten years, without fail."  "What for? I see it cioritaiiiS muriatic  acid.',  *'l may explain ten years Itcmi how."  "If I live."  "If you live."  Attnold pulled me down to him and  whispered :  '-Tell lie.r to fly at once."

"Ah!" he said, peering up into'iny faco;  "I know you now, but you have changed,  "You remember I "was called away imiiie-  diately after 1 performed that crazy operation on your friend, and have spent the  intervening seven years in India, Chiiuh  Siberia, the South Seas, and God knows  where not.

J dropped all that kind of nonsense long  ago. Boor fellow, he bore it so bravely !  Did he suffer much? How long did he  live?   A week ?"  "Seven years."  "What!" exclaimed Entrefort, startled,  "He is alive now, and in this city."  The man staggered. "Incredible!" he  said.  "it is true; you shall see him." 0  "Tell me about him," he asked, eagerly,  his eye glittering with the peculiar light  which 1 noticed on the sight of the Operation.  "Well, the change in him is shocking. I  imagine a young dare-devil of twenty-one,  who had no greater fear of danger and  death than of a cold, now a cringing,  cowering man of twenty-eight, nursing  his life with pitiful tenderness, fearful  that at any moment something may  happen to break the hold of his aorta on  the stiletto-blade, a connmed hypochondriac, peevish, melancholy, unhappy iu  the extreme.

done for him ?"
"Possibly. IVh. u- Mud him. Ah, there
comes my wife i<> nirnt me ! Sim arrived
on tlie other .sr.e/inK-r."
I recognized hue hutaitly, and was
overcome wit.li astonishment.
"Charming woman," said Entrefort,
"and you'll like ln*r. We were married
four years ago, at Bombay. She belongs
to a noble Italian faniiiy, aud has travelled a great deal."
Then he introduced us. To my unspeakable relief she recogniz-'d neither my
name nor my face. T mu-r. have appeared
a peculiar person lo her, but it was impossible to be perfectly nonchalant. We
went to Arnold's rooms, I with painful
fear. I Iefc her in the reccp ion-room, and
took Entrefort wirhin. Arnold was too
greatly absorbed with his own troubles to
be dangerously excited by meeting Eutrefort, whom he greeted with indifferent
courtesy.
"But I heard a woman's voice," he said,
and before I could move he had gone to
the reception-room, and he stood face to
face with the beautiful adventuress, who,
. wickedly desperate, had driven a stiletto
into his vitals in a hotel seven years be-
for, because he refused to marry her.
They recognized each other. Both start-
eel and turned nale ; but she, quicker wit-
led, recovered her composure ac once, and
.advanced toward him with a smileand an
extended hand. He staggered back, his
face ghastly with fear.
"Oh!" he cried out, "the blade has slipped
out—I felt it fall—the blood is pouring
out—it burns—I am dying!" and he fell
into my arms and instantly expired.
The autopsy revealed the astonishing
fact that there was no blade in him at all.
It had been gradually consumed by the
muriatic acid which Eutrefort had pre-
seribedAfpr that purpose, and with which
Arnold had kept his system constantly
filled, and the wounds in the aorta had
closed in steadily with the wasting blade,
and were perfectly healed. All his vital
organs were sound. My poor friend, once
so reckless and brave, had died simply of
a childish, groundless fear of a woman,
and she unwittingly had accomplished
her revenge. -
