Another Old Settler Gone.
     While he might not be termed one of the pioneers of Cleveland, Mr. John C. Black, who died Apr. 16 at the advanced age of 77 years, was yet one of the early settlers, having been a resident of the city since 1849.  Mr. Black was born in Indiana county, Pa., some fifty-miles from Pittsburg, in 1811.  He inherited to a large degree the strength and ruggedness of his native Pennsylvania hills.  For over twenty-five years he was engaged as builder and contractor in Cleveland, but for the last few years he had practically retired from active business.  He leaves surviving him an aged widow and four children, two sons, Alonzo J. and William H. Black, and two daughters, Mrs. J. T. R. McKay and Mrs. J. G. James, and eleven grandchildren and one great-grandchild, all at present residents of Cleveland.

Has Found a Home.
     A girl 14 years of age, Snyder by name, was found in the street April 18 by a daughter of Mr. Reese of No. 6 Brainard street and accompanied Miss Reese home.  The Snyder girl says that some time ago she stayed with a family living on Dare street and that they turned her out of doors.  Mr. Reese has kindly cared for the girl and is willing to keep her.

A Remarkable Surgical Operation
     A delicate operation was performed at the charity hospital yesterday on Maggie Meehan, alias Robinson alleged wife of John Robinson who is under sentence of death for participation in the murder of Detective Hulligan at Ravenna.  For a long time she has had a tumor of the abdomen, the character of which had never been determined upon.  Twice before coming to Cleveland she was put upon the operating table and etherized, but the surgeons did not venture to undertake the operation of removal.  She has been lying in the charity hospital three weeks and her case was discussed by many prominent surgeons of Cleveland.  It was finally decided to perform the operation, although the chances of recovery were greatly against the patient.  The operation was performed with great difficulty and much time was consumed in its performance.  It consisted of opening the abdominal cavity and removing therefrom a large amount of us.  Further escape of this was provided for by a number of tubes and the abscess and abdominal cavities were washed out with many gallons of water.  The operation required about two yours' time and was performed by a well known surgeon of this city in the presence of a number of prominent medical men.  The patient bore up well under the operation and late last night was doing well.  although the operation was one of great risk there is a fair chance of her recovery.
