SKILFUL SURGICAL OPERATION The Amercan Ambassador at Vienna, Mr Kasson, has la ely forwarded to his Government an interesting a count of a remarkable surgical operation lately performed by Professor Billroth, of Vienna, which, wonderful to tell, consisted in the removal of a portion of the human stomach, involving nearly one-third of the organ—and, strange to say, the patent recovered—the only surgical operation el the kind ever performed. The disease for which this operation was performed wai cancer of the stomach, attended with the followingsymptoms: The appetite is quite poor. There is a peculiar indescribable distress in the stomach, a feeling that has been described as a faint “ all gone" sensation ; a sticky slime collects about the teeth, especially in t e morning, accompanied by an unpleasant taste. Food fails to satisfy this peculiar faint sensation ; but, on the contrary, it appears to aggravate the f eling. The eyes are sunken, tinged with yellow ; the hands and feet become cold and sticky—a cod perspiration. The sufferers feel tired all the time, and sleep does not seem to give rest. After a time the patient becomes nervous and irritable, gloomy, his mind filled with evil forebodings. Wheq rising suddenly from a recumbent position there is a dizziness, a whistling sensation, and he is obliged to grasp something firm to keep from falling. The bowels costtve, the skin dry and hot at times ; the blood be cming thick and stagnant, and does not circulate p operly, After a time the patient spits 4p food soon after eating, sometimes in a sour and fermented condition, sometimes sweetish to the taste. Oftentimes the eis a palpitation of the heart, and the patient fears he may have heart disease. Towards the last the patient is unable to retain any food whatever, as [the opening in the intestines becomes dose, or nearly so. Although this disease is indeed alarming, sufferers with the above-named symptoms should not feel nervous, for nine hundred and ninety-nine cases out of a thousand ha e no cancer, but simply dyspepsia, a disease easily removed if treated in a proper manner. The safest and best remedy for the disease is Seigel s Cnrative Syrup, a veget ble preparation sold by all chemists and medicine vendors throughout the world, and by 'he proprietors, A. J. White (Limited), 17, Farringdon road, London, E.C.; or the wholesale agents, Kempthorne, Prosser and Co.'s > ew Zealand Drug Company (Limited), Dunedin, Chiistchurch, Wellington, and Auck and. This Syrup strikes at the very foundation of the disease, and drives it, root and branch, out of the system. St. Mary street, Peterborough, November 29th, 1881. Sir,- It gives me great pleasure to inform you of the benefit I have received from eigel's Syrup. I have been troubled for years with dyspepsia; but after a few doses of the Syrup, I found relief, and after tak ng two bottles"of it I feel quite cured. I am, Sir, yours truly, William Brent. Mr A.

My Dear Sir, —Your Syrup and Fibs are still very popular with my customers, many saying they are the best family medic nes posible. The other d’.y a customer came for two bottles of Syrup rnd said “Mother Seigel” had saved the life of his wife, and he added, “one of these bottles 1 am sending fifteen miles away to a friend who is very ill. I have much faith in it.”The sale keeps up wonderfully, in fact, one would fancy almost that the people we e beginning to breakfast, dine, and sup on Mother Seigel’s Syrup, the demand is so constant and the satisfaciion so great. I am, dear Sir, yours faithfully, (Signed) W. Bowker. To A. J. White, Esq. Spanish Town, Jamaica, West Indies, Oct. 24, 1882. Dear Sir, —I write to inform you that I have derived g ; eat benefit from “Seigel’s Syrup.” For some years I have suffered from liver complaint, with its many and varied concomitant evils, so that my life was a perpetual misery. Twelve months ago I was induced to try Seigel’s byrup, and although rather sceptical, having tried so many reputed infallible reme■dies,'l determined to give it at least a fair trial. In two or three days 1 felt considerably better and now at the end of twelve months (having continued..taking it) I am glad to s y that 1 am a. different being altogether. Uis said of certain pens that they ‘ come as a boon and a blessing lb men ” and I have no reason to doubt the truthfulness of the statement. .1 can say truly, however, that Seigel’s Syrup has come as a ‘ boon and a blessing ”to me. I have recommended it to several fellow-sufferers from this distressing complaint, and their testimony is quite in accordance with my own. Gratitude for the benefit I h ve derived from e excel'ent preparation, prompts me to furish you with this unsolicited testimonial. I am, dear Sir, Yours ever grate'ully, (Signed) Carey B. Berry, Baptist Missionary. A. J. White, Esq. Heiisingham, Whitehaven, Oct. i 5, 1882. Mr A. J. Wl ite.—Dear Sir, — I was for Some time afflicted with pi’es, and was advised to give Mother Seigel’s Syrup a trial, which ! did. lam now happy to state that it has restored me to complete health’', —I remain, yours respectfully, 3 (Signed) John H. Lightfoot.
WAR WITH RUSSIA.—At the present juncture it would be difficult for any one exe pt a prophet of the highest rank to say whether or not the present negotiations between England and Russia will lead to a general European war, or whether they will end in smoke. The absence of full information as to what is transpiring between the two countries may indicate that the political breeze is blowing harmlessly past; or, it may be the awful silence which generally precedes a storm. In either dSse, we ought to be prepared'for the worst. If a general war breaks out the price of nearly every article of commerce will rise. Among other commodities wool and labor will go up. llow is the time, therefore, to lay in a ■took of clothing, before the general advance begins. In order that we may not be caught napping we have just purchased ■ Splendid Assortment of Winter Tweeds and other materials necessary to a wellequipped tailoring establishment, which we are:prepared to offer at unusually low Jit ices for cash Regarding style and fit, t is almost needless for ns to repeat what everybody knows, viz , that by our scientific mode of cuLtipg, and th care exercised by us in fitting ti e figure, a mis-fit is an impossibility.— Ck-.ighead and Co., Ugrghaat Tailots, Tancred street,
