LEPERS ARE CURED.
But Years of Their Lives Are Waated
and They Are Left Desolate.
Honolulu. - After some of them had
spent twenty years of their life In
the leper settlement on the Island of
Molokai, ten of eleven lepers who
were returned here at the instance of
the territorial legislative committee
for re-examination have been found
free of the disease. Of these, two
are boys of six and seven years, but
the others vary In age from 27 to 79,
and some of I hem have spent many
years In -the settlement.
A pathetic feature "of thri re-examination
Is the probability that some of
the older patients will petition to be
returned to the Island, as they have
been shut on" from the world and
the'r friends so long that they have
no place else to go. A few of the
patients were sent lo the settlement
before Ihe bacteriological test for
leprosy was discovered, and It Is be
lieved that in some cases a natural
cure has been effected.
