The Post and Tribune in comnienting on the death of the president says: The end has come. After 79 days of suffennjj James Abram Garfield, twentieth president of the United States, is dead. Bom in obscurity aDd poverty, held during his early years in the vise of indigence, he rose, by force of indomitable will superior to his adverse surroundings, and acquhed education, Jnfluence and worldly honors. He became in turn, teacher, legislator, general, congressman, senator and president of the American republic; and there was a fitness within him for every position to which he was called. No higher encomium can be passed upon him. He was simple as a child, brave as a soul inspired with lofty purposes, and firm as right itself. He was a brilliant .orator, liut ne never spoku except to instruct. He was a calm counselor and he was by nature as he also was by the practbe of his life the adversary of injustice and op pression. As a son he was dutiful; as a husbaud he was devoted : as a teacher he was loved;as a legislator he was wise; as a soklier he was hereic; as a president he gave promise of restoring brotherhood to the nation. Then in the tirst flush of the nation's hope he perished. So has passed away James Abram Gaifield, the second president who has perished at the hands of an assassin within the first century of the republic.

American surgeons carried off the lau. reis at the congress just held in London. In his opening address president Eric Erichson, of the surgical sectiou, made special mentiou of Dr. Bigelow, the eminent lithrotritist, in which hesaid: "Bige low's operation has completely changed the aspect of hthotrity. aud there is every reason to believe that it constitutes one of those real advances in a method which marks an epoch not only in the history of the operation itself, bul in the treatment of the disease to which it is applicable." When it is cousidered in what contempt American surgeons were hel J by the Ennlish previous to the war, the cymmendation of Dr. Erichson, reiterated as il is by the press and the profcssion in Euglaud, is the more sitfnincant. The history of American surgery during the war afforded both surprise andastonisnment to oldworld conservatism, presenting as it did an array of successful experimenta that were until then esteemed amoug the impos8ibilities of iurgical science. The fact that the death rate in our army was less to the proportion of men operated upon than in that of any foreijjn war, excited a degree of respectful congideration and confidence in the foreign miud wbich success alone commands. The progress since made indícales that in science as an invention America proposes to keep her place in the foremost ranki of progress. - [Toledo Sunday Journal.
