HIaving nothing better to do, I re tired about 8 o'clock, and, beilng tired, soon fell asleep.

At that time I slipped and fell, straining myself inwardly. I paid little attention to it at first; but soon I found that I had habitual backache and a peculiar sick feeling at my stomach. The right side of my bowels ached and if I was on my feet a couple of hours at a time I would give out completely.
