The emancipation of the slaves in Brft zil will constitute one of the highest and most enduring of the claims of Peter II. t the grateful remembrance of prosterity. Seventeen years ago au act was passed by the Brazilian Congress providing for the gradual emancipation of all the slaves in the empire. This law was passed be cause of Lhs urgent appeals of Doni Pedro to the congress of his country for the ireedom of the bondmen. At that time thera were a little over 1,. 100,000 slaves in Brazil. Although the law of 1871 seems to have been administered witli a moderate degree of earnestness, it failed to meet the desires of the Emperor and the other friends of emancipation. Only 27, ICS slaves had been freed under its provisions up to June, 1885. In that year another and more effective measure of the same class was passed, which lias been in operatiou ever since. Recently a bill hits passed both blanches of the Brazilian Congress which, if approved by the Emperor, will speedily extinguish slavery in Brazil. This sanction un doubtedly will be given. The I net that emancipation in Ura.il is not the result of hostile pressure on the part of the slave or their friends, or of noisy and persistent agitation by cham pions of freedom, renders it peculiarly significant and impressive. It is not n rvar measure," as was the freeing of the blacks in the United States a quarter of a century ago, nor is it intended to raise up an element in the State to guard the monarch against the encroachment of the aristocratic castes, aa was the manumis sion of the serfs in Russia two years tail ier. The slaves in Brazil are being freed for purely moral reasons. Ecouomic causes may, and doubtless have, some thing to do in Bringing it about, but political or governmental considerations have had no influence in the matter. Emancipation is being decreed because the Emperor and the law-makers of the nation are convinced that slavery is a great moral wrong and opposed to the teachings and tendencies of the times. "With the final emancipation of the slaves in Brazil slavery as a legal institution will become extinct in Christendom. Globe-Democrat. A OR AND OPPORTUNITY. Those desiring to visit the Pacific coast during the summer will be afforded a grand opportunity by the Burlington . and Missouri River railroad. Arrange ments have been made with this road whereby all persons desiring to make a visit to the coast or attend the National Teachers Association at Sao Francisco can do so for one fare for the round trip. .Tickets will be on sale at all points from June 15th to July 11th, inclusive. Thir ty days will be allowed to make the round (rip and stops can be made at any point desired, but not more than 30 dayi must be consumed in the trip provided also that you do not arrive in San Francisco later than July IS. A choice of 19 dif ferent routes is offered and you can se lect either route desired . at the time ol purchasing your ticket or should you de sire to select your route after jou get to San Francisco, you can do so by paying to tho Southern Pacific Co. $10 for! change. Also an extension of time can be made as long as desired by paying $10 for each thirty days extension. The Na tional Educational Association will be held in San Francisco from July 17 to 20, inclusive of both days. This will be a graud opportunity for all desiring to attend the association, giving them such an excellent opportuni ty to visit the western country and brenthe the health-giving air from tho the snow clad mountains of that region. The routes cake one through some of the incut beautiful scenery of the west an 1 those contemplating a trip of this kind will not be afforded a better opportunity. Too entire trip can be made for $6;?, ex cept to return through Portland, Oregon, or New Orleans, La., in which case $15 dollars extra will be charged for the Pertland route and six extra for New Orleans, Pullman Sleepers will be car ried with each train and double births can be secured at from $3.50 to $4.00 per day, affording ample opportunities for rest during the trip. This will Jo the grand time of the season to visit this part of the country, everything will be in the zenith of its beauty and the trip cannot help but be enjoyed by all who will undertake it. Oxe of the best features about the Presidential canvass which is just open ing is the apparent assurance that it will be prosecuted without the disturbance to business which has characterized so many previous campaigns. Tho Dry Goods Chronicle, an intelligent trade paper, says that "all the conditions promise a fair yenr's trade"; that "business in all channels seems to be conducted on a very conservative basis;" and that there seems "no disturbing clement likely to prevent a cheerful and prosperous business for the remainder of the year." The Chron icle attributes this in part to the fact that the more intelligent the people become the less they are influenced by politics, or the less a presidential year is felt to ri an off one. Mid it says that the chicanery and trickery of politicians, their hidden ways and dark means of ex citing or disturbing the business interests of the country, are now pretty well un derstood, and arc no longer very potent for ill. This is undoubtedly true as far as it goes, but there is another considera tion which enters into the case this year for the first time srncc the war there will be a campaign in which the "scare" ar gument plays no part the argument, that is, that the country might ha ruined if there were a change of administration. Tiiis argument has been very potent in the past, ami has exerted a baleful influ ence upon business in a presidential year, since many presumably intelligent men feared that the success of the democrats might cause a financial convulsion. But the democrats succeeded four years ago, and with business more prosperous now than it was then, it is doubtful if any body will have th impudeuce to present the "scare" argument, and if anybody should be foolish enough to do so, it will produce no effect upon business men. N. Y. Post. A Warning. The modes of death's approach are va rious, and statistics show conclusively that more persons die from disease of the throat and lungs thai any other. It is probable that everyone, without excep tion, receives vast numbers of Tubercle Germs into the system and where these germs fall upon suitable soil they start into life and develop, at first slowly and is shown by a slipht tickling sensation in the throat and if allowed to continue their ravages they extend to the lungs produc ing Consumption and to the head, caus ing Catarrh. Now all this is dangerous and if allowed to continue will in time cause death. At the onset you must act with promptness; allowing a cold to go without attention is dangerous and may loose you your life, As soon as you feel that something is wrong with your throat, lungs or nostrils, obtain a bottle of Bos shee's German Syrup. It will give you immediate relief. Fire Eseape for School IJuuui.i-. A novel system of tire escape tor scnooi buildings has been suggested by Capt. Rea gan, assistant chief of the Boston fire aepai fcr ment, which upon its face looks as if it milii prove of considerable practical value. His idea is to utilize the large yard area to le found about nearly every school house in Boston and erect an ornamental iron tower a short distance from the building. This tower would contain a broad iron stairoaso leading from the top to the ground. From each floor of the school house a cov ered bridge would load Into tho tower, and tho door leading from the school room to the bridge would bo kept unlocked during school hours. The rooms on each floor would con nect with each other, and in cose of fire the. scholars could hare unobstructed access to he bridge. By such an arrangement, when ever a fira broke out there would always be an egress open, and even if matters boeamo serious, the iron tower and bridges would remain unharmed. The plan appears to be perfectly feasible, and the expense would, it is said, not be much more than what is laid out on tho present fire escapes. And we should think the same plan might bo adopted for factories ansj other buildings where num bers of ptrsons are emploj-ed on tho different floors of ib? tuildin. Fire and Water. $300 Reward.

Practical Surgery In Hospital A Vw tlent on tho Surgeon's Table flow Hemorrhage I Prevented The Knife at Work The Forceps. An amputation, while a serious is really a very simple operation. A layman who sees an amputation of a leg for the first timo is sul prised that there is about it so little that iautartling or shocking to his nerves. lie naturally expects to see serious hemorrhage and rapid work to prevent the patient's bleeding to death. He is surprised to find that, on tho contrary, it is one of tho most bloodless operations performed on tho sur geon's table. The first leg amputation seen by the writer was performed upon a man of middle age, who was suffering from advanced necrosis, or ileath of the bono of tho right leg, just below tho knee. Tho patient had been brought into tho amphitheatre of tho city hospital for treatment two weeks before the time of amputation. On the first occasion he was not ready to submit to amputation, although the doctor advised it, and tho sur geon then oierated upon the bar chance of saving tho limb. He found on examination, however, that a great cavity had formed in the bone, the first cause having been an in jury, and there was hardly a chance of saving the hmb. The aticnt not having consented, however, to lose the leg, the treatment nt that time was limited to merely cleansing tho wound and closing it up. The doctor stated then that even if the disease was checked and a cure was begun, it would require at least two years for enough fresh bone to form to make a whole limb. f.. Mechanical appliances in tho way of arti ficial limbs are now so skillfully made that a wooden leg, as it is ordinarily called, is al most as good as one of flesh and bone. It certainly is not worth two years' timo to a man in active life to spend in trying to save a badly damaged leg. At all events, this pa tient seems to have come to that conclusion, and two weeks after his first appearance he was again upon the surgeon's table, and tho necessary instruments for amputation were by the side of tho operator. It was deemed necessary to take off tho leg just above tho knee joint. The appliance which does away with all hemorrhage in amputation is oalkd the Esmarch bandage. This is simply a long belt of India rubber about two and a half inches wide, which is wound tightly about limb, beginning at a point below whero tho amuputation is to be made, and extending spirally, like the stripes of a barber's ioIe, but overlapping toward- tho body for eighteen inches or more, and then at the point of the bandage nearest tho body a stout rubber cord is tied very tightly. The mLber band is then unwound and the limb is left altogether bloodless, and with the blood ves sels tightly compressed at the point where the rubber cord remains. The effect of wind ing the rubber about the limb in this way is to drive the blood from all the veins end ar teries back into the body, and to leave bo hind nothing but the bono and tissues. Then tho surgeon begins his work. He need not hurry he has plenty of timo to do his work carefully and thoroughly. In the case in point ho proposes to cut tho bono about three inches above the knee joint. The flesh was sound and healthy from the knee joint upward, and it was necessary in this, as in all cases of amputation, to sq cut tha tissues that there would remain a flap, as it ordinarily called. Di flesh which should com pletely cover the and of the bone where it was taken off. Taking a rather narrow bladed scalpel or surgeon's knife, sharp poiuted. and with a blade about 13 inches long, he rapidly cut the flesh from the knee pan iiagonally upward to the point whero ho proposed to sever the bone, and. likewise in tho opposite de of 'ho limb, making a V" shaped incisijn )n jach sido -t the le through il ;aa riss'is to ,he bono.

This finished the sx scutivj part )t tha jperation, and it had occupiid scareoly Sve minutes. The more delicate and mora tedious part of the operation fallowed. T'lis .lypi; the taking up of tha hu-go and small blood' vessels and tying up ar ligating them. The important arteries and larger veins were easily discovered and the ends of them seized with artery forceps. These forceps were n- j plied and left hanging to perhaps a dozen blood vessels before tho hgatmg began. This work was done by the surgeon's assidtaut. It consisted iu tying the ends of the vessels, just above the point where ther were gripped by the forceps, with strong catgut thread. Especially in the case of the arteries it was necessary that this should be done with the greatest care, for if for any reason one of these threads should give way. there would bo tho greatest danger of the patient's bleed ing to ieath before the hemorrhage could be chocked. After all the blood vessels In sighfc tad been thus tied up, the rubber cord w hich bound the limb near the body was loosened, and then occurred tho only hemorrhage of ibe entire operation. There remained in the exposed stump of the limb fifteen or twenty small blood vessels which could not be de tected by the eye while the limb was blood less, and the location of which was shown by the flow of the blood itself. When fho bandage had been loosened, the surgeon, standing ready with a hand ful of artery forceps, rapidly seized the ends of the exposed bloodvessels as fast as tho location of them was indicated, and in two or three minutes the hemorrhage was checked, and the end of the limb was hung with a great bunch of curious little steel implements. These smaller vessels were taken up one at a time by ligatures, in the same manner that the others had been, and wheu the last had been tied, and the last pair of artery forceps had been removed, the wound was ready to be closed up. f It was first treated with antiseptic solution and powder in order to reduce to a minimum thF danger of inflammation and to increase the chance of the wounds healing by first in tention. Then the two flaps above and below the bone were brought together over it, and the edges of the skin were carefully sewed opposite to each other, and the operation was over. It had occupied altogether about forty flve minutes. The patient during this timo remained apparently asleep. Tho operation had been entirely painless, and wheu tho bandages had been applied and tho ether cono removed from the patient's face, ho was carried from the amphitheatre just as ho began to show signs of consciousness.
