A PROFESSIONAL CONFESSION.
THE UNUSUAL liXPEIUENCKOK A I'KOMINKNT
Ma.N MADK f'lHLIC.
The following article from the Demo,
crat and Chronicle, of Rochester, New
York, is of so striking a nature, and eman
ates from so reliab.o a s otirc! tlut it is here
with re published entire. In additon to
tho valuable mutter it contains, it will be
found exceedingly Interesting.
To thu Eilltur of the Democrat and Chronicle:
Sm: My motives for the publication
of tlio moi,t uuiinul statements which fol
low are, tirs, gr.titude lor the fact that I
huve been saved from a most horrible
death, and, secondly, a (lesir to warn all
who read this sutcmeut against some of
the must deceptive influences by which
they have ever been surrouu led. It is n
fact that to-day that thousands of
people ure within a foot of tho grave and
tla-y do not know it. To tell how I was
caught away hum just this position and to
uarn oilier agniiist bearing it, are my ob
jects i'i this coiQUiunicitii'iii.
On the lirtit day ol Juuo li, I lay at
my residence in tins city surrounded by my
friends and waiting for my death. Heuven
only knows the agony I tlieu eudurcd, for
words can never describe it. And yet, in a
b;w yi'ttis previous, any one had told me
toat I wai to be brought so lo.v, aud so
terrible a disease, I should have scoifed at
the idea. I had always been uncommonly
ktroug and besithy, had weighed over two
hundred pounds aud hardly knew, in my
own experience, what ptin or sickness
were. Very many people who will read
this statement realizes at times that they
are unusually tiled and cannot account for
it. They feel d u d and indefinite pains in
vaii"tis parts of the body and do nut unler
stand it. Or they are exceedingly hungry
or.e day and entirely without appetite the
next. This win jun the way I felt when
the relentless malady which had fastened
itself upon mo first began. Still I thought
it was n"thing; that probably I had take.i
a cold th it would soon p-is away. Shortly
after this I noticed a dull, and at times
neuralgic, pain in my head, but as it would
come one day and begone the next, I paid
but little attention to it. However,
ny stomach was out of order aud my food
often tailed to digest, rau-ing at times
great inconvenience. Yet t had no i lea
even as a physician, that these things
me-. nt am thing serious or that a monstrous
disease- was becoming fixed upon tue. Can
didly, I thought I was suflering Iroin
Malariaatid soductoredtnyselt accordingly;
But 1 not no better. I next noticed a pecu
liar color and odor about the fluids I was
passing also tliat there were large quanti
ties one d iy and very Utile the next, and
that a persistent froth and scum appeared
upon the surface, and a sediment settled in
the bottom. And yet 1 did not realize my
daugei, for indeed, seeing these Kymptoms
continually, I tinally became accustomed
to them, and my tuspicion was wholly
disarmed by the fact that I had no
pain io the effected myans or iu their vi
cinity. N hy I rfhoul I have been so blind
I cannot unrlersiand.
There is a terrible future for all physical
neglect, and impending danger always
bring i a person to his senses even though
it may then be too late. I realized, at lat-t,
my cmical condition and aroused myself to
ove-ro'tne i'. And, Oh! how hard I Hied !
I consulted the best medical skiil in the
land. I visited all the prominent mineral
springs in America and traveled from Maine
to California. Still I grew worse. No two
physicians agreed as to my malady. One
said I was troubled with spinal irritation;
another, nervous pioatratiou; another,
heart disease; another, general debility ; an
other, congestion of the base of the brain;
and so on through a long list of common
diseases, the symptoms of ail of which 1
really had. Iu this way several jrars
pass"! during all of which time I was
steadily growing wutsu. My condition had
teally bee'mn' pitiable. Tlu .-Ught -yiup-touis
I at lirst i.vpt rience l were developed
into t- mole and constant disorders - the
little twigs of pain had grown to oaks of
agony. My weight had been reduced fioiu
207 to W pounds. My life was a torture
to myself and friends. 1 could retain in
food upon my stomach, and lived wholly by
injections. I wan a living mass of paiu.
My pulse was uncontrollable. Iu my ago
ny I fn quently fell upon the floor, convul
sively clutched the carpet, aud prayed for
death. Morphine had little or uo effect in
deadening the pain. For six days and
nights I had the death premonitory hic
coughs constantly. My' urine was tilled
with tube casts and albumen. 1 was strug
gling with Bnght's Disease of the Kidneys
m its isst stages.
While suffering thus I received u call
fioiu my ptstor, the Rev. Dr. Foote, rector
of St. l'mil's church ot this city. I felt
that it was our lot interview, but In the
course of conversation he mentioned a rem
edy of winch 1 had heard much, but had
never used. Dr. Foote detailed to me tho
many remarkable cures which had dime
uudei his observation, by means of this
icnicdy, and urged me, to try it. As apiac
(icing physician and gt iduateof the t-choois
I cherished tho prejudice both natural and
common with all regular practitioners, and
derided the idea of any medicine outside
tho regular chunne's being the least bene
ficial, So solicitous, however, was Dr.
Foote, that I finally promised I would
waive my prejudice and try tho remedy ho
highly recommeiidod. I began its use on the
1st day of Juiih and took it according todi
lections, At tiist it sickened rue; but this
I thought was a good sign for mo in my
debilitated condition. I continued to take if;
thu sickening sensation departed and I was
able to retain food upon my stomach. In
a few days I noticed a decided change for
tho better as nlso did my wife and friends.
My hiccoughs ceased ami I experienced less
pain than formerly. I was ho rejoiced nt
this improved condition that, upon what I
had believed but a few davs before was my
dying bed, I vowed, in tho presence of my
family and friends, should I recover I
would both publicly and privately mako
known this remedy for tho pood of human
ity, wherever and whonevor I had an op
portunity. I also determined that I would
give a course of lectures In the Corinthian
Academy of Music of this city, stating in
lull the symptoms and almost hopelessness
ot my disease and tho remarkable means
by which I have been saved. My improve
ment was constant from that time, and in
less than three months I had gained 2G
pounds in flesh, became entirely free from
pain aud I belicvij 1 owe my life and present
condition wholly t Wnrner'a Safe Kidney
and Liver Cure tho remedy which I used,
Since my recovery I have throughly re
investigated tho subject of kidney diffi
culties and lirighl's disease, and the truths
developed are astounding. I therefore state,
deliberately, and as a physician, that I be
liee thut more than one half the deaths
which occur in America are caused by
Bright's disease of the kidneys. This may
sound like a rash statement, but I am pre
pared to tuliy vertify it. Bnght's disease
hns no distinctive symptoms of its own,
(luueed, it olten develops w ihout any pain
whatever in the kidneys or their vicinty)
but has tho symptoms of nearly every
other known com plaint. Hundreds
of peoplrr die daily, whoso burials
aro authorised by a physicians
ceititicato ni "Hoirt D. sense "Apoplexy, '
"P.ir.-.iy.sis," ".Spinal Citnpi aint,'' '"Rheu
matism," '"1'neumonia," and other common
complaints w hen in reality it was Bright's
D. sense of the kidneys. Few physicians
and fewer people, realise the extent of this
disease or its dangerous and insidious
nature. It steals into the system like a thief,
manifests its presence by the commonest
fymptouis, and fastens itself upon tho
constitution before the victim is aware.
It is nearly as hereditary as consumption
qai:e m common and fully as fatal. Entire
Uniilps, inheriting it from iheir ancestors,
have the mysterious power which was
removing iheni. Instead of common symp
toms ir often shows none wha'ever, but
litmus death suddenly, and a such is
n.-iniy supposed to be h-'art di-casn. As
one who has suffered, Bnd know by bitter
experience w hat he says, I implore every
one who read these words not to neglect
the slightest symptoms of Kidney difficulty.
l-eitain agony nnd possible death will be
(lie Mire result ot Mich neglect, and no one
enn afford to hnzatd 6uch chances.
1 am aware that such an unqualified state
rivnt as thiu, coining from me, known as
I am throuhout the entire land as a pract
itioner and lecturer will anuse the surprise
and po-.sible animotl v of th,) ine lical pro
fesMon and astonish all with whom I am
acquainted, but I mak the foroL'oing state
ments based upon facts which I am pre
pared to letter. The we'fare ol those who
may possibly be suffers such as I was, is
an ampin inducement for mo to take the
fti p I hive, and if I can successfully
warn others from the dangerous path in
which I once walked, I am willing to
endure all professional and personal con
sequences. J. B' IIenion.M. D.
