they want to ascertain more fv.Jly the

Kitty Hudson, the "Human I'lm-tnlilon.'
One of the "celebrated characters" of
Kottinghnm was Kitty Hudson, known
throughout Great Uritain as "the human
pincushion." She was born in 1765, and at
the age of six wits ii sweeper in St. Mairy's
church, near Arnold. I'ins were rarities
among the poorer classes, and poor Kitty
was encouraged to pick up those found on
the church Hoor, "receiving a stick of taffy
for every mouthful thus collected." This
habit of holding pins in the mouth grew on
the child till finally she could neither eat,
drink nor sleep without having from six
to a dozen of them nnder her tongue and
around her gums. She would often go to
sleep with a mouthful of pins and r wake to
find them gone.
The absence of the pins could be account
ed for only in one way she hiul swallowed
them. Still she kept up the practice, feel
ing no ill effects except a numbness in her
limbs. Ten or a dozen years later, how
ever, she was in a terrible plight, passing
sleepless nights and screaming with pain
nearly all the time. In 1785 she was sent
to the Nottingham hospital and remained
in that institution n year, during which
time 6,000 pins were removed from differ
ent parts of her body, no less than 800 of
them coming out through her breasts, both
of which had to be amputated. After her
discharge from the hospital she was mar
ried twice, and became the mother of nine
children, none of whom lived to the age of
eighteen. Notwithstanding her terrible ex
perience Kitty lived to le over seventy
years old. Ht. Louis Republic

A few weeks ago a young lady of un
usual interest and brightness for her
years came into tte office of Dr. Wilson,
of the Scott Medical institute. She said:
"Doctor, I don't know whether you

these. I have a chronic diarrhoea. It

the past 20 years I d d sot breathe
through my nose. In al that length of
time I did not get any permanent relief
and I ihougbt my case hoieicES when I
visited Dr. Wilson of the Scott Medical
Institute. I had dull headache oyer the
eyes, my nose was so til ltd up I could
not breathe and I had a constant dis
charge, of mucuous into my throat. I was
troubled with deafness, and at times I
was very dizzy. My stoci ch bothered
me and in fact I was generally debiltat
ed. I was candidly told I had catarrh
and also nasal polypii. I know I had
some growth in my nose, for at times
the disease would trouble me so bad that
the polvpii would bequite plain to be teen.
Well. I was teld it would be necessary
to have the obstruction removed from
my nose and a short treatment for ca-.j
carrh would entirely cure me. I nndet
went the operation, which was entirely
without pain, and after two treatments I
could brea he as well as the day I was
born. I had 19 or 20 lumps or pieces
of polypii remoyed from my nose most
of them being two or three timts as
large as an ordinary bean. This is no
"say so." I was not under the influence
of an at 'the: ic I saw them removed
I counted them and they are e till pre
served at the offie, where tbey may be
seen." Now this took place fuiiy six
weeks sgo and through all the wet and
cold weather that has been sine I have
bad no return of my trouble. I am well
and cured. Dr. Wilson told me I could
be cured, and what is more I am cured."

WHY TtlEY SUCCEED.
The remarkabie success which the
bcott Medical institute has achieved in
every department of its practice has cre
ated a good deal of commerit not only
among the people who are t-ffrcted with
chronic diseases, but ulsn smon;' their
brother prsc'ttionerB and the qm-s'ion is
often asked, ' Wh-it is the :ause of this
large measure of success? ' The enswer
maybe stated in a few w r.1. In the
first place the physicians f.f the Scott
Medical institute are skilled m n.
In the eecocd place they give their
whole time to thcr patients and to their
pofefrsion. When the? are cot in the
consultation room in attendance upon
their pitients they are discussing the pe
culiar features of individual cases.so thst
they my be redy to apply the re.Milt of
their deliberations in tie consulting
This is the whole secret of their suc
cess. With them the science or medicine is a
constant g.-owib, and every care a special
study. Not a poir t that h.s any p-igsible
bearing on the cse in haid is cvrr
looked This is tte reason that they suc
ceed where others fail.
Cron'c diseases n q tire chronic treat
ment. Your trouble has been rcnr3 com
ing on you. It has invaded every part of
your system, weakened and reduced jou.

ence to the practice of medicine.
