One of tho nios romarkablo
cases of vitality, under conditions
which physicians and scientists tell
us Ufa Is Impossible even by young
and vigorous persons, Is reported
from tho Ltvla neighborhood.
On Friday, January 3, Mrs. Nan

highly respected woman, was strick
en with paralysis. That was 11
days ago, and within that time sho
has not eaten a particle of food,
and had only a few drops of water
once, on last Friday, a week after
she was stricken. Tho muscles of
her throat and mouth are so par
alyzed that uho can tiot chew or
swallow. Her caso puzzles her phy
sicians; because her vitality is low
on account of her age, and they
cannot understand how she can sur
vive so long without food and
practically without water.
