Under the head of "Seeks Health in

"Charles II. Deere, the millionaire

"Three years ago Mr. Deere was told
by physicians in Moline, Rock Island
and Davenport that he had stomach
trouble. They treated him for a short
time and he then came to Chicago an 1

was not satisfactory, so he went to the
best specialists of New York, and final

"Three months ago he quit work be

came to Chicago again for an examina
tion by Dr. Charles E. Kahlke, "147

his patient to the John W. Street
hospital and made a thorough examina

"To be certain of the diagnosis Dr
Frank Billings, Dr. Bertram Sippy and
i)r. 1 nomas .). Watkins were also em
ployed to give their opinion. Their de
cision confirmed the diagnosis of Dr,
Kahlke and proper treatment was be
gun at once.
'Mr. Deere is overworked,' said Dr
ahlke last night. 'lie thinks he gave
up work some time ago, but I am told
that he kept at it until three months
ago. At present he is improving ami
I hope to build him up steadily.'
"Dr. Kahlke declined to discuss the
case m detail, but said there was no
asis for the alarming reports circula
ted in Moline. One of these rumors
asserted that Mr. Deere was dying.
A specialist said that anaemia is a
blood disease from which few patients
recover. Often the patient, he said,
builds up physically and to outward ap
poarancos improves materially, but
soon wastes away.
