or a time at all events, thissource of danger is removed, and comfort and ease are secured tothe sufferer. The ecraseur is the best instrument for the operation. Thechain or the wire rope may be used; the latter is best when thepedicle is a short one, or when the uterus is fixed. The scissorsare preferable to the knife if the ecraseur cannot be employed.There is an objection to drawing down the uterus more than canbe avoided. Sir J. Y. Simpson believes, probably with reason,that the dragging down of the uterus has been the cause of thatfatal shock which has followed the operation in one or two in-stances.

I have amputated the cervixin a few cases of this kind, and theoperation Avill doubtless be practisedby others under similar circumstan-ces, more frequently than heretofore.When the disease has attacked theuterus above the vaginal reflection, ac-tual removal of the diseased tissue isnot practicable unless we extirpate the entire uterus. Could thisextirpation be practised easily, the operation would be useless, forthe disease has always by this time under such circumstances in-vaded the neighboring tissues. The extirpation itself is practi-cally not an admissible operation. A method of treatment
