Manistee and it was hard for me to close my

One daughter lived in Chicago and lieintf
advised to change climate I came here. Ths
atta"k ou th tt Christmas afternoon came
without warning. I was suddenly taken
with chills and rheumatic fever, which grew
worse day by day. Manistee physicians did
all thev could for me. hut I was helpless in
bed until the end of May 1893. The physi
rians advisi-d me to leave the shores of the
lake and csccially Manistee. I took their
advice and came to Chicago.
" Rheumatism was in my hands, my feet

piece of glass. The skin by the swelling
was stretched to sach a point thr.t it burst

wounds came water for quite a long time.
My sufferings were almost uabeanilile, aud
I tried the treatment of one of Chicago's
oldest and best physicians. I tok his uiedi

awake but a short time, feeling better then I
had tor months, nnd went into a found sleep,
never waking till o'clock in the inorniinr.
It was very hot down there in Au'jiift. but
from that time I flept and rcstisl well. Then
I felt and siw nn improvement gradually

I feel twiners mid little pains in my shoul

ihe pills for u day or so and they take every
indication of those pains away.
" Wilh the exception of ihe periods when
the weather is frichtfiilly misrnibl?. 1 have
not taken any pills since I was cored. And
the pills I have taken finee have net been
