operation proved successful.
The
method by which the operation was
performed was of great interest to the
surgeons, and is said in professional
circles to be a great step in surgery in
America. Dr. Samuel Weber, a mem­
ber of the advisory staff of the hospital,
ha«l charge of the operation, which >*
said to be the first of its nature per­
formed in America, and the second
known to medical men, the fii.-
being been pel formed in Europe.
Weber made a study of the initial
operation, and concluded the method
might be employed for the amputation
of lower limbs of patients who were
unable to withstand the effects of
anaesthetics.
The method consists in the deaden­
ing of the nerves in the limbs by the
injection of cocaine in the vertebral
cavity above the point where the nerves
controlling the lower limbs branch
from the spinal chord.
The patient had suffered a gangrenous
affection of the leg, ami amputation
became necessary to save her life. She
was not in a condition to make the use
of an anaesthetic safe, and the surgeon
decided to try the method which had
proved successful in a Berlin hospital.
The drug was injected into the patient’»
vertebral cavity a short distance below
the waist line, and soon she announced
that she had lost all feeling in her
lower limbs, while she was fully con-
scions of what was going on and had
the full use of all her faculties.
The limb was removed two inches
below the hip, and after the effect of
the drug had passed away the woman
said she felt well. The prospects foi
her recovery are good.

London, Feb. 21.—A member of the
cabinet told H. W. Lucy tonight that
the war office had received a telegram
announcing that General Cronje was
hopelessly surrounded. Mr. Wyndham
was beset with anxious members of
the house, but would only reply that
the government’s news was extremely
satisfactory. The sole explanation ol
the government’s withholding good
news is that confirmation and more
details are awaited.
The situation, as disclosed by corre-
spondents over the Free State border,
is tantalizing to the public expectation.
The elementary facts are that the Boers
are trekking eastward toward Bloemfon­
tein with slow moving baggage trains,
and that they are pursued by Lord.

division. General MacDonald, with
the Highlanders, made a forced march

General French
left Kimberley Saturday, going along
the Modder river. Lord Kitchener is
trying to outmarch and to outflank
the Boers, thus checking their retreat,
if possible, and driving them back in
to the hands of MacDonald and French.
