SAN FRANCISCO , Cal. The Chroni
cle publishes- substance the follow
ing marvel. Captain W. F. Swasey ,
the oldest pioneer of the coast , makes
a statement of the intense suffering of
his friend Colonel D. J. Williamson ,
an army officer of distinction , and an
ex-U. S. consul , who was attacked in
the winter of 1861-2 with violent rheu
matism. * So great was his agony in
after years , he became a helpless crip
ple , and after trying numberless reme
dies , the baths of other countries and
spending a fortune of $20,000 , the dis
ease seemed to assume a more virulent
type. Finally , he was persuaded to try
St. Jacobs Oil , the great conqueror of
pain. It worked a miracle of cure. In
a letter to the Chronicle he confirms
Capt. Swasey's statement and adds :
"I cheerfully give my unqualified at
testation to the truthfulness of tte
statement , because I feel perfectly cer
tain that a knowledge of my cure by
St. Jacobs Oil , will prove the means of
relieving hundred of sufferers. "
Extent of the Czar's Estate.
One may form some idea of the ex
tent of the possessions belonging to the
Russian emperor as property immedi
ately attached to the crown when we
hear that the Altai estates alone cover
an area of 40,000,000 desjatins , or over
170,000 square miles , being about three
times the size of England and Wales.
The Nertchinsk estates , in eastern Sibe
ria , are estimated at about 18,000,000
desjatins. In the Altai estates are situ
ated the gold and silver mines of Bar
naul , Paulov , Smijov andXoktjepp , the
copper foundry at Sasoum and the
great iron works at Gavrilov , in the
Salagirov district. The receipts from
these enormous estates are in a ridicu
lously pitiful ratio" to. their extent. In
the year 1882 they amounted to 950-
000 rubles , or a little more than 95-
000 ; while for 1883 the revenue was
estimated at less than half this sum , or
about 400,000 rubles. The rents , etc. ,
gave a surplus over expense of admin
istration of about a million and a half
of roubles. Ou the other hand , the
working of the mines showed a deficit
of over a million ; hence the result just
indicated. A partial explanation of
this very unsatisfactory state of things
is to be found in the situation of the
mines , which are generally in places
quite destitute of wood , while the
smelting works were naturally situated
in districts where wood abounds , some
times as much as 600 or 700 kilometres
distant from the mines. The cost of
transport of rawtmaterials became con
siderable in this way. By degress all
the wood available in the neighborhood
of the smelting works became used up ,
audit was necessary to fetch wood
from distances of even over 100 kilo
metres. Formerly the mines were
really penal settlements , worked by
convicts , who were partly helped by
immigrants , whose sons were exempted
from military service on the condition
of working in the mines. But since
the abolition of serfdom this system has
been quite altered , and there is now a
great deal of free labor on the ordinary

Atf EYE FOE AN EYE.A
An Oo\xll t's Triumph.
Transplanting a Babbit' * Conjunctiva
Into a Human Eye.
Fiom tbe Oranba Ceo.
In surgery , no less than in medical
science , wonderful progress has been
made in the last score of years. The
knife in the hands of 'the skillful sur
geon is made to perform for the benefit
of humanity cures and changes which
a quarter of a century ago would have
been considered entirely beyond the
power of man. This was strongly ex
emplified in a difficult but * neauy exe
cuted case of surgery performed by
Dr. Graddy , the oculist , of this city , a
few days ago. The reporter had been
invited to witness the transplanting
of a piece of rabbit's eye to the
eye of a young man. Anxious
to witness an operation rare in opthal-
mic surgery , he was promptly on hand.
All the preparations had been made for
the event. Glittering surgical instru
ments lay open on the secretary , and
Dr. Graddy was explaining the peculiar
features oi the operation about to be
performed to several medical gentle
men who were present as assistants.
"I am about to transplant a portion
of the conjunctiva of that rabbit , in the
right eye of this boy1 said the doctor ,
in reply to a question , as he pointed tea
a young man some nineteen years of
age. "The conjunctiva is the mucuous
membrane which lines the interior of
the eyelids and exterior of the eyeball.
The lad is nearly blind from partial
blepharophimosis or partial closure of
the lids. He has been under treatment
for some lime and I have made good
progress with his left eye by drawing
new membrane into the corner and
holding it in plaee until it became at
tached , but all my'efforts to produce
the same effect in the right eye have
failed on account of the friable nature
of that portion of the conjunctiva
which remains. I now propose to re
place it with new tissue taken fro.m the
eye of that rabbit and let it grow in
place of his own. "
A few moments only were necessary
to etherize the patient. A pair of del
icate scissors , in Dr. Graddy's skillful
hand , quickly prepared the diseased
eye for the reception of the new mem
brane by the removal of the old
cicatrices or scars , which' disfigured
the inside of the corner of the eyelids
of the unconscious patient , and left
them raw and bleeding.
"New I am ready for the rabbit , "
said the doctor. A cloth was quickly
thrown over Bunny's head , and in a
trice he was as unconscious of pain as
the patient whose eyes he was to assist
in restoring to health. Scissors and
forceps and scalpel were now called
into requisition , and the doctor began
the difficult work of dissecting from
around the rabbit's eye the deli
cate membrane which was to be trans
planted to the human eye. Deftly ,
bit by bit , it was disengaged from the
adhering tissues and held by slender
curved needles , through whose eyes
were drawn silken threads , which were
to "attach it to its new home. . Five
minutes of rapid work only were nec
essary to complete the dissection , when
the conjunctiva , a thin and delicate
membrane , was lifted from the rabbit
by the threads and carried over to the
patient , who had recovered from the
effects of the ether. . The eyelids were
lifted and the quivering membrane
carefully dropped into the corner , trim
med until it fitted precisely the abraded
surface and then deftly sewn by three
or four stitches to the place. The pa
tient's eyes were then bandaged and he
was dismissed with the injunction to
remain quietly in bed for four days.
Dr. Graddy stated that it was not a par
ticularly rare operation , but one not
frequently performed outside of the
large eastern cities. The disease is
sometimes congenital , but in the pres
ent case he thought must be the result
of either inllamation at an early age or
aciite and long continued granulation
of the lids. The patient's skin was
naturally of a puffy character , contain
ing a good deal of fat under it , and this
increased the difficulty.
A medical gentleman who , like the
reporter , was present as a spectator ,
remarked that the operation was sp'en-
didly performed , and the reporter fully
coincided with this opinion.
'Emerson and Phillips.
Boston Letter to Hartford Oourant.
Mild a man as Ralph Waldo Emer
son was , he resented Wendell Phillips'
attacks upon personal character with a
feeling such as was shown by few of
his contemporaries. Mr. Phillips and
Mr. Emerson being both Boston boys ,
and in the Latin school at the same
time , and also sympathizing with each
other in the early days ot the antislavery -
slavery , were on lathei intimate terms
of intercourse through much of their
lives. The placid philosopher was
probably led to wonder at the vehe
mence of manner of Mr. Phillips on
more than one occasion. Mr. Emerson
never had controversies with anyone
himself. He simply shunned the soci
ety of those who were not congenial.
You may remember his quiet remark
when he was once represented by a
clergyman of the orthodox faith as the
incarceration of evil because of his lack
of agreement with evangelical sects in
his theological views. "Our friend
seems a very earnest man , " he is re
ported to have said. But Mr. Emerson
did break with Mr. Phillips. The lat
ter went to Concord in one of the But
ler campaigns , and uttered a violent
philippic against Judge Hoar. Emer
son heard it , and after the address was
over , when Mr. Phillips approached
him to take his hand as usual , it was
declined with dignity and firmness.
There was never any intercourse be
tween the two men after that. They
met not frequently , but when they were
thrown into the same company Mr.
Emerson declined all intercourse with
one who , he said , had been so unfair
and unjust in his treatment of his friend
Judge Hoar. His language was still
stronger than this , but perhaps it is
not gracious to quote it at the p'resent

The Division of Fifteen Thotuand Dollars
Drawn In tbe Louisiana tottery.
AbouE the first of March twenty-
seven workmen at the West Milwau
kee shops of the St. Paul road , nearly
all of whom were employed in the
paint department , conceived the idea
of trying their luck in the forthcom
ing drawing of the Louisiana State lot
tery. With the exception of one or
two , who took two chances , the men
each contributed one dollar , which was
invested in tickets and a pool formed.
The drawing took place at New Or
leans on the llth inst. , and a few days
afterwards Henry Rivers , foreman of
the railway company paint shops , who
had been intrusted with the matter , re
ceived advices from Mr. Dauphin ,
president of the Louisiana lottery , that
ticket No. 14,467 had drawn the first
capital prize of § 75,000 , one-fifth of
the ticket being held by the Milwaukee
pool , entitling the members to § 15,000.
Last week ( Tuesday ) the money was
paid to Mr. Rivers through the Marine
and Fire Insurance Company's bank.
The windfall has been divided among
the fortunate investors , each receiving
$555 65. The men were highly elated
over their unexpected good fortune ,
and the promptness with , which the
money was paid by the lottery manage
ment. Nearly every cent of the mo
ney has been invested in homesteads.
