Peruna Critics Say
That There Was Nothing Wonderful
in the Recovery of Mrs.
DR. HARTMAN REPLIES.
Ol course my narrative concerning
Mrs. Eberlein of Pittsburgh, who was
rescued from apparent death by Pe-rti-na,
has excited a good deal of dis
cussion and comment. One crUic has
ottered the following solution. He
says that the reason Pe-ru-na cured
Mrs. Eberlein at such a stage of the
disease is explained as follows:
She was probably very weak. She
became unable to expectorate. The
consequence was huge accumulations
of mucus and phlegm gathered In tho
lungs. On account of her weakness
she was unable to expel it. It was
slowly strangling her to death.
Pe-ru-na stimluated her, enabled hc-r
to cough up and spit out the accum
ulated phlegm. This explains why she
was cured. There was no miracle
about it. Nothing wonderful either.
To all of which I say, yes, of course.
That may be the explanation. And
yet it remains true that without the
Pe ru-na she would have died. It re
mains true that I got there just In time
to save her life. The doctors had
given her up to die. She was gasp
ing for breath, unconscious, cold, in
short, dying. However, It is explained,
fie Pe-ru-na saved her life. Of course
I do not believe in miracles myself.
I believe there is a natural explana
tion for everything. Pe-ru-na helped
Mrs. Eberlein to expel from her lungs
the accumulated expectoration, and
thiiR. saved her 'life. Good.
I presume Mrs. Eberlein is just as
thankful that she is alive with one
explanation as with another, and I am
jnst as thankful that I was able to
cure her, whatever the explanation
