HEROIC ACT OF A MEDICAL MAN. The Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland presented at Dublin Castle on Friday the Albert Medal to Dr. C. Thompson, of Tyrone Infirmary, in recognition of the heroism shown by him in the practice of his profession by the performance of an extremely dangerous operation—removing poisonous matter in a case of diphtheria by sucking it away—a mode of saving the patient which has more than once proved fatal to the operator. Colonel Caulfield, 4th Royal Enniskillen Fusiliers, having introduced Dr. Thompson, the Lord-Lieutenant, addressing the doctor, spoke highly of his skill and courage. The latter quality, his lordship observed, took many forms, and the highest form of it was that in which the moral qualities mingled with the physical. His lordship added: "It is my most satisfactory duty, in the name of my Sovereign, to mark you out as one of those who have signally distinguished themselves in that respect."

His Excellency then handed the medal to Dr. Thompson, who replied.
