H CAUSE OF FIRE.
9fr inspector Fii'.kerson said: "I have de
. jBtermlned that the fire originated from

-.jBfitensely hot and Inadequately pro
HBected Hood light. I have determined
fchat the curtain stuck because a piece

II ft"l have evidence that the automatic

I they should have done and create a

Brighfs Disease and
Onicc Wine and Spirit P.evlcw.
San Francisco, Dec. 2S, 1903.
To the Editors of Utah:
Dear Sirs The business men of this
city who are now proclaiming to the
world the discovery of the cure for
Brlght's Disease and Diabetes have
asked me as one of the beneficiaries to
write to some of my brother editors.
Hence this letter to you. I was at first
as skeptical as anyone. I had reason
to be. I had a clear case- of chronic
Brlght's Disease; was ill for a year. It
v. as not thought I would live thirty
days. The President of the Pacific
States Type-Foundry told my wife that
the newly-discovered diuretic wouid
save my life, and against my private
convictions I was put on It. In six
months my recovery was compldle.
A friend of mine, Dr. A. J. Howe, a
prominent physician, was nearly dead
with Brlght's Disease. On my recovery
I told him and he acted the same In his
case and he Is now well on the road to
recovery. I told one of the writers on
the Call, whose mother had Diabetes.
She has fully recovered. As a brother
editor I personally assure you of the
truth of the discovery. Thousands of
lives are to be saved, and I am writing
in the hope that this letter will start
some of them right.
R. M. WOOD, Editor.

covered Fulton Compounds, tho first
