The significance pfthe present phase,  can only be appreciated -by those  coguizant with the lethargic' attitude ~,bf,-the British' government  ," hitherto regarding' Russian action  in China. ' Within the last few days  all this" has changed. What a week  or two ago was pronounced only in  ' line with Russia's usual policy is  now termed "a grave and serious  state of affairs."  .'" Lord Lansdowne is using every  effort to bring the powers into lino  iu order tb present to Russia such a  menacing front that without any  ambiguity regarding temporary or  other occupation she may give up  all designs upon Manchuria. What  prompts the' Biitish foreign' office  to take such an alarmist view of  circumstances usually looked upon  as fatalistic sequences is the apprehension that Russia having had her  own way iri spite of the protest of  the ministers of the powers to the  Chinese government and having  put herself on record in reply to sir  Charles Scott as determined on at  least a temporary occupation of  Manchuria will refuse tb back down.  That she musfr do so lord Lansdowne considers vital both for the,  future of China and for the con;  tinned existence of concert of the  the greatest secrecy and it was not  apparently without motive that a  special dispatch was allowed to go  from London erroneously announcing that the negotiations going on  between'Mr. Choate and lord Lansdowne related to the 'Nicaraguan  affair."

The stomach was cut and lifted  out of its place and laid on a cushion  of antiseptic cloths placed on the  patient's chest.

The stomach was then put back in  its accustomed place, having been  joined to the intestines with silk  sutures.
