votes of thanks were passed to the

my feet, limbs, hands and face became swollen. I could not rise from a chair and could
scarcely walk, and was obliged to have my water drawn from fifteen to twenty times a day.
My friends considered I would not last many days. 1 then —tnree montns ago—commenced

I paid $25 per day for medical advice. They failed to prevent me from running down. Finally
these physicians told my friends that my case was incurable, and that I could not possibly lire
