The Century.
THE DOCTOR'S CURE.
It was an old piece of business all
round, and I am the only person who
knows all about it.
To be 8 are, you may say there was
the lawyer who drew up the will, but
he did not know the motive, and as for
Mrs, Germond herself, she was the
moat ni) stilled of all.
How I have laughed to myself to
hear her, for she was quite confidential
with me.
Why, doctor." she would say, 'I
never saw old Ms. Bryant in my life.
'I had heard ot her, but never until
I came to Merton.
'It is the strangest thing.'
Mrs. Germond was not a native of
Merton, but came there with an in
valid husband and two mites of chil
dren for country air.
I, being the only physician, was soon
called in to see Mr. Germond, who waa
slowly dying of consumption, and had
been sent from soino large city to try
to keep the feeble spark of life alow
by country air and diet.
Mrs. Germond was a splendid musi
cian, and had obtained the position to
organist in our church from letters of
introduction to some of our leading
members.
In the same way she started a class
ot scholars amongst our wealthy peo
ple, and was thus able to support her
family with comfort, if not very lux
uriously. It w.is not long before my profession
al interest was as much given to Mrs.
Germond as to my actual patient, and
with far greater concern, because in
her case recovery was possible, while
with her husband we could no more
than smooth his passage to the grave.
She was a slender delicate looking
woman, retined in manner, gentle aud
pleasant, and with the most cheerful
face to meet troubles I ever saw.
She was not pretty, but her smile
was like sunshine and her voice al
ways sweet and boft.
Yet, with all this sunny brightness,
sweet even temper, and gentle care for
the invalid, lire. Germond was one of
those quiet maitxrs who bear -the ills
attendant upon overwork and mental
strain unflinchingly.
I vainly tried to make her save her
self. Her watchword was duty, and her
will overcame her weakness.
Prostrate one day with the agonizing
headaches of physical exhaustion, she
was out the next, busy with her
ocnolars, or up all night tending her
husband.
When he had died she lay for days
entirely passive, all energy gone for
the time; herhea;t crushed with grief,
her frame for once without the ruling
power to rouse it to action.
But she wa not the woman to let
such grief overcome her manifest duty,
and motherlove came to rouse her.
Once more the dreary treadmill be
gan to wear her oody, now still less
fitted for its burdens, and I could only
help her to teuiiorary relief and
strength, knowing that perfect rest
would rt store to its natural strength
one of the most perfect organiz itions
I ever saw.
Ah, how 1 longed for money in those
days when I watched Mrs. Germond
treading a path 1 knew mu9t end in
death, without the power to stop her.
For her children, as for her husband,
she toiled unceasingly, and while her
home duties were so engrossing, she
never turned from the calls of human
ity or charity.
Many a dying bed, where poverty
wore its darkest frown, was soothed
by her gentle presence.
Many a dainty dish came from her
hands to those poorer than herself.
It was impossible for 'me to avoid
knowing all this, as the invalids of
Merton had no physician but myself,
but it was in vain that I urged Mrs.
Germond to spare herself.
One would think I was sick," she
would say to me, "when I only have a
cough that 1 have had for years, and
sometimes neuralgia."
Are you ever free from pain?'
Well, no, not entirely, but it is bear
able.'
And so I come to my mysterious
legacy. 1 had many times told Mrs.
Germond that if she would giver.p her
scholars and obey me Implicitly for
. six months she would be well.
And at last I did what we of the
healing profession shrink most from
doing, I told her that if she did not
she must prepare to break down hope
lesslv.
But see,' she pleaded, 'how often I
break down and jet get up again.
I cannot give up my work and see
my children starve.
What could I say?
I had urged upon her the necessity
of rest, placed before her the danger in
which she stood, and I was powerless
to do more.
It was just at this time that Mrs.
Bryant, the owner of half Merton, and
heiress to three fortunes her father's
mothers, and her husbands was
dangerously ill.
She was one of my patients, of course,
but she had but seldom called upon
my professional services, having earn
ed her eighty years of life almost with
out pain or disease.
Her illness proved fatal from the
first, but she had but little suffering,
and her cheerfulness was wonderful.
Many a long talk we have had when
Iliad finished my professional visits,
aud in one of these she said to me
Tell me of some charity for Merton
to which I can leave a portion of my
wealth.
My husband's money I have left to
his relatives, but I have not one living
who can claim me as related to him.
' 'I stand alone, and I have disposed
of my own property in benefits to pub
lic institutions.
But I should like to do Bome other
good hero.
You know so many of our pocr peo
ple. Tell me where small f-ums, say five
hundred each, can be distributed to do
most good.'
With much discussion we made out
a list, and then she said
I have still fifteen thousand for Mer
ton Like an Inspiration came to me the
thought of the precious life that money
humanely speaking, would save.
The income of fifteen thousand would
give Mrs. Germond a support, enable
her to devote herself to her children, to
be the ood angel of many a poor home,
and yet to rest from the monotonous
labor that wad wearing out her
strength and depriving her of her
power ofusefulness.
It was a bold thing to do, and Mrs.
Bryant looked rather stunned at the
audacity of my proposal ; but I asked
her to leave the money, in one sum, to
a total stranger who was not an object
ofchaiity.
But you tell me she earns a comfort
able support,' she said.
At the price of her life.'
It is such a strange thing to do, to
leave so large a sum to an entire strang
er.' Ah,' I said, if it were only done
oftener.
If the millionaires who leave im
mense sums to charities to be doled out
in tempoiary relief, would sometimes
look out for a few of the hard-working
individuals who are struggling beyond
their strength, and give them a sum to
insure an income for life.'
It was one of my hobbies, this suf
fering of what may be called "genteel
pjverty and I used all my eloquence.
Still Mrs. Bryant seemed to be uncon
vinced when I left her.
'It was such an odd thing to do."
It is an odd thing to do,' I said, 'but
health and strength, save a mother to
two children, and I firmly believe do
more good than the same money will
do split up into small charities, or dis
tributed in public institutions."
When old Mrs. Bryant died, I had
gone to attend the funeral of my son's
wife, and I wa3 absent two weeks, a
brother practitioner from Hilton, ten
miles distant from Merton, taking my
place.
On my return, in giving me an account
of his visits, he male no mention of Mrs
Germond, and I found that he had not
been culled in to see her.
I knew that she was not fond of
strange faces, and concluded that she
had preferred to trust to her own judg
ment, if suffering until my return.
B it one of my first calls was at the
little cottage 'where I found my friend
in a state of bewildered excitement.
Doctor,' she said, 'you have often
promised me perfect health if 1 would
give up my scholars and obey you im
plicitly. Can you still proinis that V
I think I can under Providence.'
Issue your orders then.
My scholars are already warned to
get a new teacher.
Imagine, doctor, Mrs. Bryant has
left me fifteen thousand dollars.'
I never saw her.
And the income is to be paid regul
arly from the date of her death, uutil
the estate is settled, when the capital
will be at my disposal.
Why, you do not look half sc aston
ished as I am.'
Brought thus to ray senses. I put on
an expression of surprise; and I think
the pleasure was already visible.
I lost no tima in sendim; iny patient,
for the winter, to a softer climate than
our village, with most explicit direct
ions for her dailv lite.
And the result justified my hopes.
In the spring Mrs. Germond return
ed to Mertbn without one dangerous
symptom, with her soft eyes bright
with health, and her slender form
strengthened and vigorous.
There is not in all Merton a mere
useful energetic woman lhan my form
er patient, and if Mrs. Bryant could
see the many acts of gentle humanity
that came from the little cottage, she
might still think her legacy to a strang
er was alter all, only another form of
distributing the money in smaller
charities.
A Great Bridge. It is not gener
ally kuown that in the vicinity of
Washington Is the largest stone arch
in the world, with a span of 220 feet,
which crosses the river Dee. The
structure in question is named Cabin
John bridge, from the streams it spans,
"Cabin John nun, which in turn was
named after a hermit fisherman and
trapper of the olden time, who lived in
a hut near the mouth of the creek, and
was only known as Cabin John. The
arch Is the support, of the conduit, an
elliptical brick structure for the pas
sage of the water which supplies the
city of Washington, and comes from
the Totomac at a point several miles
up the river. Cabin John bridge
springs the chasm at a height of 101
feet. It is 20 feet wide, its extreme
length being 420 feet. The cost was
1237,000. The spectator is at once im
pressed with the grace and strength of
the structure, its airy lightness taking
away all idea of the immense pressure
upon it. Cut in the granite tablet of
the west abutment is an inscription
that is worthy of note. The bridge
was built under the direction of the
secretary of war, who, at the time,
was Jefferson Davis. The arch traitor's
name has been carefully chiseled.

THE MICHIGAN CONSTITUTION.
Amendments to be Voted Upon at the
Comiug Election. The Question of
General Revision Abo to be Cousid
ered.
Although it is generally known that
some amendments to the constitution of
the state will come up for decision at
the November election, the special im
port of each is not understood. The
importance of the subject to all Michb
gan voters explains the reason we give
them in extenso :
JOIN r HKSOLU I ION to provide for submit
ting the queHtlou or a general revision or me
Constitution of the State of Michigan to the
electors thereof.
Whereas, Section two of article
twenty of the constitution of this State

revision of the constitution of this
State shall be submitted to the electors
qualified to vote for members of the
legislature, at the general election to be
held in the year one thousand eight
hundred and sixty-six, and in each six
teenth year thereafter ;
And whereas, It seems to be the
duty of the legislature to provide the
mode of such submission ; therefore
Resolved. That the question of a gen
eral revision of the constitution of this
State shall be submitted at the election
to be held on the first Tuesday after the
first Monday in November, in the year
one thousand eight hundred and eighty,
two. and that notice of. such submission
be given in the same manner and at the
same time as notice is now required to
be given for the election of State officers;
that the inspectors of the election of the
several townships and warUs provide a
separate ballot box to receive all votes
that may be cast at such election, for or
gainst such revision of the constitu
tion; and that the electors voting in
favor of a general revision of the con
stitution shall have written or printed,
or partly written or partly printed on
their ballots, the words "for a revision
of the constitution ;" and those voting
against such revision shall have
written or printed, or partly written
and partly printed on their ballots
the words, "against a revision of
the constitution;" which votes shall
be canvassed and certified, as near as
may be, as the votes for governor and
lieutenant-governor are required to be
canvassed.
Restlved, That it shall be the duty of
the secretary of State to report the re
sult of said election to the legislature
at the next session thereat ler, within
ten days after the commencement
thereof ; and in case a majority of the
qualified electors voting at such election
shall have decided iu favor of a revision
of the constitution, the legislature shall
provide by law for the election of dele
gates to a convention, for the purpose
of making such revision, and shall pre
scribe the number of delegates, and the
time, place, and manner of holding such
convention.

PHOFESSIONAL CONFESSION.
The Unusual Experienoo of a Prom-
in.nt Man Made Publjo
The following article from the Dem
ocrat and Chronicle, of Rochester, N.
Is of so striking' a nature, and
emanates from so re'iable a source,
that it is herewith re published entire.
In addition to the valuable matter it
contains, it will be found exceeJiugly
interesting.
To the Editor of the Democrat and
Clironide:
SiRi My motives for the publication
of the most unusual statements which
follow are, first, gratitude for the fact
that I have been saved from a most
horrible death, and, secondly, a desire
to warn all who read this statement
agiiuht some of the most deceptive in
fluences by which they have ever been
surrounded. It is a fact that to-day
thousands of people are within a foot
of the grave aud they do not know It.
To tell how I was caught away from
lu-t this position and to warn others
against ne iring it, are my objects in
this communication.
On the flist day of June 1881, 1 lay
at my residence m this city surround
ed by my friends and waiting for my
death. Heaven only knows the agony
I then endured, for words can never
describe it. And yet, if a few years
previous, any one had told me that I
was to be brought so low, and by so
terrible a disease, I should have scoffed
at the idea. I had always been un
commonly strong and healthy, had
weighed over 200 pounds and hardly
knew, in my own experience, what
pain or sickness were. Very many peo
ple who will read this statement realize
at all times that they are unusually tired
and cannot account for it. They frel
dull and indefinite Kiins in various
parts of the body and do not understand
it. Or they are exceedingly hungry
one day and entirely without appetite
the next, lhis was just the way I felt
when the relentless malady which had
fastened itself upon me first began.
Still I thought it was nothing; that
probably 1 had taken a cold which
would soon pass away. Shortly after
this I noticed a dull, and at times a
neuralgic, pain in my head, but as it
would come one dy and be gone the
next, I paid but little attention to it.
However, my stomach was out of or
der and my food often failed to digest,
causing at times great inconvenience.
1 et I had no Idea, even as a physician,
that these things meant anything seri
ous or that a monstrous disease was
becoming fixed upon me. Candidly, I
thought 1 was suffering from Malaria
aud so doctored mi self accordingly.
But I got no better. I next noticed a
peculiar Color and odor about the fluids
I was passing also that there were
large quantities one day and very little
the next, and that a persistent froth
and scum appeared upon the surface,
and a sediment settled in the bottom.
And yet I did not realize my danger,
for, indeed, seeing these symptoms
continually, I finally became accustom-
to them, and my suspicion was wholly
disarmed by the fact that I h;ul no pain
in the affected organs or in their vicin
ity. Why 1 should have been so blind
I cannot understand.
Tnere is a terrible future for all
physical uejlect, and impending danger
alva brings a person to his senses,
even though it may then be too late. 1
realised, at last, my critical condition,
and amused myself to overcome It.
And, Oil! how hard I tried! I consulted
the best medical skill in the land. I
visited all the prominent mineral
springs in America, and traveled from
Mainn to California. Still I grew worse.
No two physicians agreed as to my
malady. One said I was troubled with
spinal irritation ; another, nervous
prostration ; another, malaria ; another,
dyspepsia; another, beart disease; anoth
er, general debility; another, congestion
of the base of the brain : and so on
through a long list of common diseases,
the symptoms of all of which I really
had. In this way several years passed,
during all of which time I was steadily
growing worse. My condition had
really become pitiable. The slight
symptoms I at first experienced were
developed into terrible and constant
disorders the little twigs of pain had
grown to oaks of agony. My weight
had been reduced from 207 to 130
pounds. My life was a torture to my
self and friends. 1 could retain no food
upon my stomach, and lived wholly by
injections. 1 was a living mass of pain.
My pulse was uncontrolable. In my
agony I frequently fell upon the floor,
convulsively clutched the carpot, and
prayed for death. Morphine had little
or no effect in deadening the pain. For
six days and nights 1 had the death
premonitory hiccoughs constantly. My
urine was filled with tube casts and al
bunien. I was struggling with Bright's
Disease of the Kidneys in its last
stages.
While suffering thus I received a call
from my pastor, the Rev. Dr. Foote,
rector of St. Paul's church, of this city.
I felt that it was our last Interview,
but iu the course of conversation he
mentioned a remedy of which I had
heard much but had never used. Dr.
Foote detailed to me many remarkable
cures which had como under his obser
vatiou, by means of this remedy, and
urged me to try it. As a practicing
phjsician and a graduate of the schools,
I cherished the prejudice both natural
and common with all regular practl
tioners, and ueriued ine idea ot any
medicine outside the regular channels
being the least beneficial. So solicitous,
however was Dr. Foote, that I finally
promised I would waive my prejudice
and try the remedy he so highly re
commended. I began its use on the
1st day of June and took it according
to directions. At first it sickened me;
but this I thought was a good sign for
me in my debilitated condition. I con
tinued to take it; the sickening sensa
tion departed and I was able to retain
food upon my stomach. In a few days
I noticed a decided change for the bet
ter as also did my wife and friends.
My hiccoughs ceased and I experienced
less pain than lormeriy. i was so re
joiced at this improved condition that,
upon what I had believed but a few
days before was my djingbed, I vowed
in the presence of my family and
friends, should I recover I would both
publicly and privately make known
this remedy for the good of humanity,
wherever and whenever I had an
opportunity. 1 also determined
that I would give n course
of lectures in the Corinthian
Academy of Music of this city, stating
In full the symptoms and almost hope
lessness of my disease and the remark
able means by which I have be;n baved.
My improvement was constant from
that time, and in less than three months
1 had gained 26 pounds in flesh,became
entirely free from pain and I believe I
owe my life and present condition
wholly to Warmer s Safe Kidney and
Liver Cur, the remedy which I used.
Since my recovery I have thoroughly
re-investigated the subject of kidney
difficulties and Bright's disease, and
the truths developed are astounding. 1
therefore state, deliberately, and as a
physician, that I believe that more than
one-half the deaths which occur in
America are caused by Bright's disease
of the kidreys. This may Bound like
a rash statement, but I am prepared to
fully verify it. Bi ight s disease has no
distinctive symptoms of Its own, (in
deed, It often develops without any
pain whatever in the kidneys or their
vicinity), but has the symptoms of
nearly every other known complaint.
Hundreds of people die daily, whose
burials are authorized by a physician's
certificate of Heart Disease," Apo
plexy,' raralysis,",,Spinal Complaint,
Rheumatism," "Pneumonia," "and
other common complaints, when in re
ality it was Blight's Disease of the
Kidneys. Few physicians, and fewer
pe )ple,realize the extent of this disease
or its dangerous and insidious nature.
It steals into the system like a thief,
manifests its presence by the common
est symptoms, and fastens itself upon
the constitution before the victim
is aware. It is nearly as hereditary as
consumption, quite as common, and
fully as fatal. Entire families, inherit
ing it from their ancestors, have died,
and yet none of the number knew or
realized the mysterious power which
was removing them. Instead of com
mon symptoms it often shows cone
whatever, but brings death suddenly,
and as such is usually supposed to be
heart disease. As one who has suffered.
and knows by bitter experience what
he says, J implore every one who reads
these words not to neglect the slightest
symptoms of Kidney difllcully. Certain
agony. and possible death will be the
sure result of such neglect, aud no one
can aff'ird to hazard such chances.
I am aware that such an unqualified
statement as this, comintr from me.
known as I am throughout the entire
land as a practitioner and lecturer, will
arouse the surprise and possible ani
mosity or the medical profession, and
astonish all w ith whom 1 am acquainted,
nut l in iKe the foregoing statements
based upon facts which I am prepared
to produce and truths which I can sub
stantiate to the letter. The welf.tre
of those who may possibly be sufferers
such as I was, is an ampin inducement
for me to take the step 1 have, and if 1
can successfully warn others from the
dangerous path in which I once walked.
I am willing, t endure all professional
and personal consequences.
