in health that an operation was ad

seated cancer of several years growth
was found in the stomach and
bowels. To remove this would have
meant immediate death. The at
tending physician and surgeon, one
of the most skillful in Boston, Dr
Bateman, said that Mr. Dodge might
live for six months. His life has
been prolonged not quite that lengtl

As soon as Mr. Dodge could be
removed from the Hospital, he was
married to Miss Fannie Ewell a life

has been cared for by his wjfe, re

nurse has been constantly watching
