Doctor y — —^ one of tbeaiost eminent Burgeons of Pestb, wiw sammbned at day* break, one morning, to aee » piwaon who , prewingly •ouffht to be adinitt^ to him While waiting in the antechamber, the vis itor deaind the servant to add that every moment’s delay was dangerous, as he stood in need of instant help. The surgeon, hastily throwing off his nifh^rotie^ gave orders for himtob^^own •p at oinoe. It wM as entire stnnger, but one whose .dreas ud'manner p ro ^m ed him a man beloncing to the best owss of aooietjr. Bis pallid olmka spoke of seme deep inwaiil bodil* aad mental paia; mad kis (igb^^nd rested in a silken eling. Though he sao- Meded pefrfeetly in oontrolling the enresmon of hisoountenance a low murmur orpain, in spite of all h«s efforts, broke forth repeatedly from his Ups. “ Uave I the. honor of Addressing Doctor N------- ?*’ he asked, in a weak, almost fainting ^otoe, as he approacl^ .tho sur-geon. “ Xes, sir." , ' i . . “ Pardon the question. I do not live in j I ^ t h ; I came from the oountry, and know ' YOU by repytation only* I regrat not to ^ ' able fo make your aoauaintsinoe tinder happier oiroumatanees—” The surgeon, seeing that hisTisitor eonld scarcely stand on his feet, begged him to rest on his divan. “ I am weary; for a whole week I have not closed my eyes. 1 have been having a pain in my right hand, to which 1 can give no name.. In tho beginning I felt only a arifh^ fKDfy but in afehoit ^ 9 kponknenc- »d to'burn With coa<Writiy..inaiBa8 ing Pvio-lence, growing to be a tortnre beyond the reach of the uishtest allfTiation. 1 have tried eveiy obtainable rem'edy, far and near, but nothing; relieves me—there remains the same piercing, cutting, deadly pain. Final* ly, I could bear no more; I got in a oarriaM sup^rt longer.” - ^ ‘ i . A e sfwgeon here enomvored to encourage him,* aaTing his suffering might be overcome by milder means than the use of the knife. ‘‘No any pal! the knife, here.” Doctor N-----asked to be permitted tfrlook at his hand; on which tlie sufferer, setting bis teeth hard, held it forth. The surgeon, using the greatest precaution, began to loosen the bandage. “ Let me entreat you, in advance, doctor, not to be overcome by anything you will see. My pain is so strange, so extraordina- a, that it will certainly take you unawares, raitate at nothing, I pray you.” T&e sargeon assured the stranger that he was accustomed to everything in his profession, and pledged himself to hesitate at nothing. * NeverthelesR, when the hand appearad, he shrank back involuntarily, letting it fall heavily. The hand was . apparently as •ound, healthy-looldng and perfect as any other—.not a spot was to be seen upon i t ! A sharp cry from the sufferer, as he lifted the dropped hand with his lefc, proved that hft bad come in no jest, but that he suffered cruelly. “ AVherc does it pain you ?” Here, do<’.tor,” said the stranger, pointing to a place on the upper surface of his hand, where two veins parted froipi each other in fiiint blue lines. The surgeon marked him shudder, as he touched the spot with bis finger. •* You feel it paining you here?” ‘ Frightfully!” “ And you suffer from the pressure, when The stranger was not in a condition to answer. Tears started to his eyes, so dreadful was the suffering. “Wonderful! I distinguish nothing herel” And yet I experience there so inexpressible a pain that I could dash my head against the wall.” The surgeon took a microscope, examined the place, and shook his head. The skin is clear and healthy; the blood courses freely in the veins ; there is no inflammation, no apparent hurt. The place is precisely in its natural state.” “ I think it is somewhat redder.” “ Where?” The stranger took a pencil from his pock-e^ book, and drew a line around a spot the size of a balf-kreuzer. “ Here.” The surgeon carefully looked at this spot, and began to thinkthat hispatientwa«]insane. “ Remain here.” he said; I may be able to assist you in a few days.” ‘‘ I cannot wait. Do not think, sir, that you have a madman before you. That is a misfortune of which you*will not have to cure me. .The place I have indicated causes me such agony, that, I repeat it, I have alone come here to have it cut out.” “ Which, however, I will not do!” said the surgeon. “ And why not Because your hand is perfectly sound ; so far as I can see, there is no more the matter with it than there is .with my own hand!” “You are, therefore, ready to decide that I am mad—you cannot believe me jesting returned the stranger, taking a note for a thousajid guilders out of his pocket-book, and laying iton the table. “There, see that this is BO child’s play, and that the service v>’hich I ask at your hands is of the highest necessity and importance to me. I entreat you, cut this spot from out my hand!’' “ And I say to you, sir, that all the wealth of the world would not induce me to look on a sound member as diseased, or make the slightest incision in such a one. To do it would be to do what my surgical knowledge condemns—it would put my reputation to shame—in a word, my dul^ forbids i t ! The whole world would maintain that you were a lunatie, but of me they would say either that I had been so unprincipled as to profit by your mania, or that'I was too ignorant to pemive the error into which you had led me.” So be i t At least you can accord me this favor. I will perform the operation myself. Jly left hand will, it is true, be •omewhat unskilful, but let that pass. I nill sooa finish; you will surely have the jQ9 !iQiM. | 0 dtflNM the wound for me.” The surgeon marked with amazement beyond words, that the strange being was in sad earnest, for he laid aside his coat, turned back his sleeves, and took his penknife in his left hand. Another moment, and he would haVe plunged it deep into his right hand. ! wiUi: " Hold!” cried the surgeon, alarmed lest the stranger should sever an artery, “ if the operation be really inevitable, then, in the name of heaven, let me perform it I” On which, takine his surgical instrument n his hand, he laid the patients right straight out in his own, at the same time requesting him to look another way. “ That is not necescary. Allow me to show YOU just how deep u e knife shall go.” And, truly, during the whole operation, the stranger’s resolution did not fail him ; he himself directed the surgeon as to the depth of the incision; his hand never moved until the spot represented as the seat of the p ^ was cut out, when, throwing back his chest he heaved a great sigh of relief. “ Do you feel no more burning?” questioned the surceon. “It is entire^ gone,” answered the strang* er, smiling'; ** the torture has ceased. As for ^ e slighter pain which the wound oc* canons me, it is to the first pain what a warm breese is compared to insupportable heat” While the bandage was being applied, the: appearance oi the stranger totally altered. A calm, pleasant expression met the surgeon’s eye, instead of the former look of intense pain; the brow grew clear, the color lively, returning love of life replaced the late cruel a^tation—the whole man seemed transformed. > As the surgeon readjusted the stranger’s hand in the sling, he felt his own seized by the left hand of the latter, who, pressing it warmly, said to him in the most fervent tones: Receive for your masterly service my most sincere thanks. You have laid me un der a real obligation to you—for the remuneration on my part is small, indeed, in comparison with the mighty assistance which you have rendered me. I will be indebted to you all my life long I” But the surgeon’s estimate of the value of his services was wholly different; he absolutely refused to accept the note for a thousand guilders, which still laid on the table. The stranger persisted in leaving it, and had passed out of the door, when, seeing the growing displeasure of the surgeon, he turned, and begged him at all events to consent to expend a part of the sum for the benefit of some hospital, and hastily took his de* parture. Doctor N visited his patient for a few days at the hotel where he was remaining until his wound was completely healed. This was rapidly taking place. During the course of this time, the surgeon had an opportunity to make observations which resulted in the conviction that he had to deal with a refined, accomplished man; one whose every word evinced, not only e.xtensive, information, but that knowledge of the world so agreeable when united with superiority of mind* the sli^'htest trace of any ail ment, either bodily or mental, was to be remarked after the operation. The stranger returned .to his estates shortly afterward, perfectly restored. Three weeks had passed, when the servant was again called upon to announce to the surgeon the arrival of his singular patient. Ihe strim.iier, who was instantlv admitted, appeared again with a bandaged arm : and, so great was his suffering, that, at first glance, his features were scarcely recognizable. Sinkin;! into a chair, before the surgeon had time to offer him a seat, he stretched out his hand to him, no longer suffi-jienUy master of himself to control his groans. •• What has happened?” sympathizingly iD q u i r e d t h e s u r g e o n . The incision was not deep enough.’' groaned the stranger. “ The pain hiw re turned—burns more fiercely than before. I could not at first bring myself to trouble you again ; I lingered, hoping that death would come and put an end to my existence. But what I longed for came not. The pain was, and still remains, concentrated in this one place. Look at me, and perhaps you will form an idea of my snffering.” The countenance of the stranger was white with agony, and cold drops covered his brow. The surgeon unloosed the bandage. The wound had closed; everything about the hand appeared healthy and sound as before, and the pulse beat evenly and naturally. “ This touches on the marvellous!” exclaimed Doctor N. “ It passes widely beyond everything in my past experience. Wonderful 1” “ Yes, wonderful, terrible! Seek not now for the cause, doctor, but free me from this torture. Take your instrument, and insert it deeper than before: that alone will give me relief.” The surgeon saw that he must grant this prayer. For the second time he performed the same operation; again did he remark the astonishing alteration in the countenance of the stranger. Again, as he replaced the bandage, a Iresh color took the place of the patient’s pallor, brightening the visage before so wan. But the smile returned not now as before. Sadly he thanked the sur* geon for his assistance. “ I thank you, doctor. Again the pain has ceased, fn a few days the wound will be healed. Nevertheless, be not astonished if you see me here in a month.” “ Be easy on that score, sir; ohase that thought out of your mind!” exclaimed the surgeon. “ I have an unerring conviction that that deadly pain will return at the end of a P R I C E 3 L .
