A HUNTER'S STOKY.
How Ho Was Overcome and the Way by
\Vlilch.He Was Finally Saved.
Correspondence Spirit of the Times.
An unusual adventure which recently
occurred to your correspondent while
hunting at Brookmere in'this state is so
timely and contains so much that can
be made valuable to all readers , that I
venture to reproduce it entire :
The day was a most inclement one
and the snow quite deep. Rabbit tracks
were plentiful , but they principally led
in the direction of a large swamp , in
r which the rabbits could run without dif
ficulty , but where the hunter constantly
broke through the thin ice , sinking into
the half-frozen mire to his knees. Not
withstanding these difficulties , the
writer had persevered , although a very
small bag of game was the result. While
tramping about through a particularly'
malarial portion of the swamp , a mid
dle a < * ed man suddenly came into view ,
carrying a muzzle loading shotgun and
completely loaded down with game of
the finest description. Natural cririos-
itv , aside from the involuntary/envy /
th'at instinctively arose , promptey the
writer .to enter into conversation
the man , with the follo\ving resul
"You've had fine success ; whe
you get all that game ? " J
"Right here , in the swamp. " |
"It's pretty rough hunting ii
uarts , especially when .a man g
to his waist every other step. "
"Yes , it's not very pleasant , b
used to it and don't mind it. "
"How long have you hunted
bouts ? "
"Whv , bless you , I have live
most of my life and hunted up
years ago every year. "
"How does it happen you i
the last ten years ? "
"Because I was scarcely able to
move , much less hunt. "
"I don't understand you./ '
"Well , you see , about ten years ago ,
after I had been tramping around all
day in this same swamp * I felt quite a
pain in my ankle. I didn't mind it
very much , but it kept troubling me
for a dayor two , and i could see that
it kept increasing. The next thing I
.knew , I felt the sajfle kind of a pain in
my shoulder and-I found it pained mete
to move my arm- This thing kept go
ing on and in-reasing , and though I
tried to shake'off the feeling and make
myself think it was only a little tempo
rary trouble.I found that it did not go.
Shortly after this my joints began to
aohe at t e knees and I finally became
so bad 'fiat I had to remain in the house
mostot the time. "
/nd did you trace all this to the
fast that you had hunted so much in'
fiis swamp ? "
"No , I didn't know what to lay it to ,
but I knew that I was in misery. My
joints swelled until it seemed as though
all the flesh I bad left was bunched at
the joints ; my fingers crooked in every
way and some of them became double-
jointed. In fact , every joint in my
body seemed to vie with the others to
see which could become the largest and
cause me the greatest suffering. In this
way several years passed on , during
which time I was pretty nearly helpless.
I became so nervous and sensitive that
I would s't bolstered up in the chair and
call to people that entered the room
not to come near me , or even touch
my chair. While'all this was going
on , 1 felt an awful burning heat and
fever , with occasional chills running
all over my body , but especially along
my back and through my shoulders.
Then again my blood seemed to.be .
boiling and my brain to be on fire. "
"Didn't you try to prevent all this
agony ? "
"Try. I should think I did try. I
tried every doctor that came within my
reach and all the proprietary medi
cines I could hear of. I used washes
and liniments enough to last me for all
time , but the only relief I received was
by injections of morphine. "
"Well , you talk in a very strange
manner for a man , who has tramped
around on a day like this and in a
swamp like this. How in the world , do
you dare to do it ? " .
"Because I am completely well and
as sound as a dollar. It may seem
strange , but it is true that I was entirely
cured ; the rheumatism all driven out
of my blood ; my joints reduced to their
natural size and my. strength made as
great as ever before , by means of that
great and simple remedy , Warner's
Safe Rheumatic cure , which I believe
saved my life. "
"And so you now have no fear of
rheumatism ? "
"Why , no. Even if it should come
on , I can easilyget rid of it by using
the same remedy. "
The writer turned to leave , as it was
growing dark , but beforelhad reached
the city precisely the same symptoms I
had just heard described came upon me
with great violence. Impressed with
the hunter's story , I tried the same
remedy , and within twenty-four hours
all pain and inflammation had disap
peared. If any reader is suffering from
any manner of rheumatic or neuralgic
troubles and desires relief let him by all
means try this same great remedy.
And if any readers doubt the truth of
the above incident or its statements let
them write to A. A. Coates , Brookmere ,
N. Y. , who was the man with whom the
writer conversed , and convince them
selves of its truth or falsity.
