"Mr. Matthew Young, of this vil
lage, has entirely recovered. He was
afilictei with cancer of the lower lip.
The cancer was removed the 1st of
September by Dr. Uriah Branch, of
St. Taul, who is a cancer specialist.
Dr. Branch did not nse a knife, but
put on a salve which drew out the
cancer. The principal enre was
effected by some internal remedy,
which Dr. Branch says kills the can
cer germ, and which has proven true
in Mr. Young's case, for he was cured
in 10 dr f. No scar remains and the
cure is ermanent."
