DR. FREIDMAN TO
PROVE HIS CURE

(W. G. Shepherd Speciul Cable.)
BERLIN, Dec. 14.—Dr. Fred
erich Franz Freidman, who an
nounced to the Berlin Medical so
ciety on November 6 that after
years of laboratory experimenta
tion he had discovered a cure for
tuberculosis, that during the past
two years he had treated and
cured upwards of COO cases of
lung and bone tuberculosis, will
submit his treatment to the scien
tific world next Monday.
Dr. Freidman has announced
that beginning on Monday he will
treat every certified case of tu
berculosis sent to him by physi
cians or scientists. He has open
ed special quarters for this pur
pose and many physicians have
agreed to send tuberculosis cases

on the ground that any one from
a small drop of the culture could
develop enough to supply the
world and deprive him of all cred
it and recompense. While Freid
man's partisans defend his posi
tion the skeptics contend that his
refusal to meet their conditions is
strong evidence against the re
liability of his claims.
Dr. Freldmau's final answer is
th e offer to treat with his new
serum every certified case of tu
berculosis sent to him.
The test cases which Dr. Freld
man will treat will be certified at
the Royal and other clinics.
I have personally talked with
many Berlin physicians about Dr.
Freidnian and his claims and
found that there is much skepti
cism among physicians who have
not personally observed ana ex
amined the tuberculars Freidman
claimed to have cured. On the
other hand four physicians or
standing whom Freidman has
trusted and permitted to see his
treatment have expressed them
selves to me as convinced tnat
Freidman has discovered the long
sought germ which kills the tu
bercular germ in the human boay
and that his treatment will cure
bone tubercular, the latter in not
too advanced stages.
Prof Schleics said to me: "I
was extremely skeptical until I
sent one case to Freidman. I
have seen CO or 70 cures."

A few weeks before Edwina

he was given to understand that
he "had better move, as babies
were not wanted."
" 'But, I expostulated, de

I exclaimed, 'a baby is more de
