THE" PITTSBUBG-"" DISPATCH; ,SATUKDAY, ' JUNE 29, 1889.
proving the occasion, in spite of the doctor's
injunctions, vanished when she saw Ruth's
white face on the pillow. Noiselessly she
placed the little table close to the bed, and
put the cup upon it. Buth opened her
eves as she did so.
" "Here is some tea, dearie," Hesba said,
softly. "I will put it down here, and you
can drink it when you feel inclined." Buth
murmured "Thank you," and Hesba stooped
over her and kissed her cheek more softly
than she had ever done before, and then
went quietly out of the room again.
"She looks worse than I thought for,
Hiram," she said, as she proceeded to help
the little servant they kept to lay the cloth
lor dinner. "I doubt she's more hurt than
the doctor thinks. I could see there were
tears on her cheek, and Buth was never one
to crv, not when she was hurt ever so much.
Of course, it may be because she is low and
weak; still I tell you that I don't like it Is
the doctor coming again?"
"Yes; he said he would look in again this
"I don't like it," Hesba repeated, "and
after dinner I will put on my bonnet and go
down to the doctor myself and hear what he
has got to say about her. Perhape he will
tell me more than he would yeu; he knows
wnat poor creatures men are. They just get
lightened out of what wits they've got, if
you let on any one's bad; but I will get it
out of him. It frets me to think I wasn't
here when she was brought in instead of
having strangers messing about her."
It came into Hiram's mind to retort thst
her being away at that moment was a spe
cial warning against her going to Dareport,
but the low, troubled voice in which she
spoke, and the furtive passing of her hand
across her cheek to brush away a tear, ef
fectually silenced him. It was all so unu
sual in the case of Hesba, whom, indeed,
he had never seen so soft and womanly since
the first dav she bad crossed the threshold
of the door, that he was at once touched
"I hope you are wrong, wife; I hope you
are wrong," he said, putting his hand on
her shoulder. "I don't think the doctor
thought badly of it, but he seemed puzzled
like. I thought; but if there's trouble,
Hesba, we will bear it together, you and I;
it's sent for good, we both know that. We
goes the same way, you know, wife, if we
don't go by the same road."
The woman made no answer. That mo
ment the girl appeared with the dinner.
Hesba ate but a lew mouthfuls, aud then
saying sharply that she had no appetite,
rose from the table, put on her bonnet and
shawl, and, without a word, walked out
She was away longer than Hiram ex
pected, and in the meantime he had toan
swer the questions of many of the neigh
bors, who, having heard from the woman
who had been called in of Buth's accident,
came to learn tbe particulars. When Hesba
returned she brought a bundle with her.
"The doctor's coming in an hour," she
said. "I didn't get much out of him, ex
cept he said it had been a shock to her sys
tem, and he was afraid that there might be
slight concussion of the brain. Ho said if
that was so Me should want some ice to put
to her head, and I hare been up to The
Hold and seen Miss Carne. I had heard
Buth say they always have ice up there,
and she has given me some. She was just
coming down to inquire about Buth, but of
course I told hershecouldn'ttalk to nobody.
That was the doctor's orders. Has she
moved since I have been away?"
Hiram shook his head. "I have been up
twice, but she was just lying with her eyes
"Well, I will go and sit up there," said
Hesba. "Tell that girl if she makes any
noise, out of the house she goes; and the best
thing you can do is to take your pipe and
sit in that arbor outside, or walk up and
down if you can't keep yourself warm; and
don't let anyone come knocking at the door
and -worriting her. It will be worse for
them if I has to come down."
Hiram Powlett obeyed his wife's parting
injunction and kept on guard all the after
noon, being absent from his usual place in
church for the first time lor years. In the
evening there was nothing for him to do in
the house, and his wife being upstairs, he
followed his usual custom of dropping for
half an hour into the snuggery at the Carne
"Yes, it's true," he said in answer to the
questions of his cronies, "Buth hashad a
bad fall, and the doctor this afternoon sap
as she has got a slight concussion of the
brain. He said ke hoped she would get over
it, but he looked serious like when he came
down stairs. It's a bad affair, I expect. But
she is in God's hau'dsj and a better girl never
stepped, though I says it." There was a
murmur of regret and consolation among
the four smokers, but they saw that Hiram
was too upset for many words, and the con
versation turned into other channels for a
time, Hiram taking no share in it, but
"It's a rum thing," he said presently,
during a pause in the conversation, "that a
man don't know really about a woman's
nature, not when he has lived with her for
years and Tears, Now there's my wile
Hesba, who has got a tongue as sharp as
anyone in this village." A momentary
smile passed round tbe circle, lor the sharp
ness ot Hesba Powlett's tozgae was notori
ous. "It scarce seemed to me, neighbors, as
she had cot a soft side to her or that she
cared more for Buth than she did for the
house dog. She always did her dutv by
her, I will say that for her, and a tidier
woman and a better housewife there ain't in
the country round. But duty is one thing
and love is another. .Now you would
hardly believe it, but I do think that Hesba
feels this business as much as I do. You
wouldn't have knowed her; she goes about
the house withier shoes off as quiet as a
mouse, and she speaks that soft and gentle
you wouldn't know it was her. Women's
queer creatures anyway."
There was a chorus of assent to the propo
sition, and indeed the discovery that Hesba
Powlett had a soft side to her nature was
i or three days Jiuth Powlett lay uncon
scious, and theu quiet and good nursing
and the ice on her head had their effect, and
one evening the doctor, on visiting her,
said that he thought a change had taken
place, and that she was now sleeping natu
rally. The next morning there was con
sciousness in her eyes when she opened
them, and she looked in surprise at the
room darkened by a curtain pinned across
the window, and at Hesba, sitting by ' her
bedside with a huge nightcap on herhead.
-Whatis it, mother.wbathas happened?"
"You have been ill, Buth, but thank
God you are better now. Don't talk, dear,
and don't worry. I have got some beef-tea
warming by the fire; the doctor said you
were to try and drink a cup when you woke,
and then go off to sleep again."
Buth looked with a feeble surprise after
Hesba as she left the room, missing the
sharp, decisive foot-tread. In a minute she
returned as noiselessly as she had gone.
"Can vou hold the cup yourself. Buth, or
shall I leed you?"
Buth put out her hand, but it was too
weak to hold the cup. She was able, how
ever, slightly to raise her head, and Hesba
held the cup to her lips.
"What have you done to your feet,
mother?" she asked, as she finished the
"I have left my snoes down stairs, Bnth,
the doctor said you were to be kept quiet;
now try to go to sleep, that's a dear."
She stooped and kissed the girl affection
ately, and Buth, to her surprise, felt a tear
drop on her cheek. She was wondering
over this strange circumstance when she
again fell asleep.
In a few days she was about the house
again, but she was silent and grave, and
did not gain strength as fast as the doctor
iad hoped for Howeyer, int three weeks'
time she was well enough to return to The
Hold. Hiram had strongly remonstrated
against her doing so, but she seemed to set
her mind upon it, urging that she would be
better for having something to think about
and do than in remaining idle at home;
and, as the doctor was also of opinion that
the change would be rather likely to benefit
than to do her harm, Hiram cave way.
The day before she left she said to her
"Do you know whether George Forester
has been caught, or whether he has got
"He has not been caught, Buth, but I
'don't think he has .gone away. There is a
Iftalkin the village that he has been hidintr
yjfowa at Dareport, and'theconstable has
fone over there several times, but he can't
nd signs of him. I think he must be mad
to stay so near when he knows he is wanted.
I can't think what is keeping him."
"I have made up my mind, father, to give
him up. You have been right, and I know
now he wonld not make me a good husband;
buVplease don't say anything against him;
it is hard enough as it is."
Hiram kissed his daughter.
"Thank God for that. news, Buth. I
hoped, after that poaching business, you
would se: it in that light and that he wasn't
fit for a mate for one like you. Your
mother will be glad, child. She ain't like
the same woman as she was, is she?"
"No, indeed, father; I do not seem to
"I don't know as I was ever so knocked
over in my life as I was yesterday, Buth,
when your mother came down stairs in her
bonnet and shawl, and said, 1 am going to
church with yon, Hiram.' I didn't open
my lips until we were half way, and then
she said as how it had been borne in on her
as how her not being here when you was
brought in was a judgment on her for being
away at,Dareport instead of being at church
with us; and &he said .more than that, as
how, now she thought over it, she saw as
she hadn't done right by me and you all
these years, and hoped to make a better
wife what time she was left to us. I wasn't
sure all church time as it wasn't a dream to
see her sitting there beside me, and joining
in the hymns, listening attentive to the
parson as she has always been running
down. She said on tbe way home she felt
just as she did when she was a girl, five
and twenty years ago, and used to come over
here to church, afore she took up with the
Buth kissed her father.
"Then my fall has done good after all,"
she said. "It makes me happy to know it."
"I shall be happy when I see you quite
yourself again, Buth. Come back to us
"I will, father; in the spring I will come
home again for good, I promise you," and
so' Buth returned for a time to The Hold.
"I am glad you are back again, Buth,"
Hiss Carne, who had been down several
times to see her, said.' "I told you to not
hurry yourself, and I would have done with
out you for another month, but you know I
am really very glad to have you back again.
Mary managed my hair very well, but I
could not talk to her as I do to you."
Buth had not been in the house many
hours before she learnt from her fellow ser
vant that Mr. Gulston had been two or
three times over since the shooting party,
and that the servants in general had an
opinion that he came over to see Miss Carne.
"It's easy to see that with halt an eye,"
one of the girls said, "and I think Miss
Margaret likes him too, and no wonder, for
a properer looking man is not to be seen; but
I always thought she would have married
her cousin. Everyone has thought so for
"It's much better she should take the
sailor gentleman," one of the elder women
said. "I am not saying anything against
Mr. Bonald, who js as nice a young gentle
man as one would want to see, but he is her
cousin, and I don't hold to marriage among
cousins anyhow, and especially in a family
like ours." ,
"I think it isbetter for us not to talk about
it at all," Buth said, quietly; "I don't think
it right and proper, and it will be quite time
enough to talk about Miss Margaret's affairs
when we know she is engaged."
The others were silent for a minute after
Buth's remark, and then the under-house-maid,
who had been an old playmate of
"You never have ideas like other people,
Buth Powlett It is a family thing, and we
can't say a word about people in the house
witboutbeing snapped up."
"Buth is right" the other said, "and yonr
tongue runs too fast, Jane; as Bnth says, it
will be quite time enough to talk when Miss
Margaret is engaged; till then, the least said
In truth, Lieutenant Gulston had been
several times at The Hold, and Lis friend
the doctor, seeing his admonition had been
altogether thrown away, avoided the sub
ject, but from his gravity of manner showed
that he had not forgotten it; and he shook
his head sadly when one afternoon the lieu
tenant had obtained leave until the follow
ing day. "I wish I had never spoken. Had
I not been an old fool I should have known
well enough that he was fairly taken by her.
We have sailed together for 12 years, and
now there is an end to our friendship. X
hope that will be all, and that he will not
have reason to be sorry that he did not take
my advice and drop it in time. Of courp
she may have escaped, and I think that she
has done so; but it's a terrible risk terrible.
I would give a year's pay that it shouldn't
An hour before Lieutenant Gulston left
his ship Bonald Mervyn had started for
The Hold. A word that had been said bv a
young officer of the flagship who was dining
at mess had caught his ears. It was con
cerning his first lieutenant. '
"He's got quite afishingmania at present,
and twice a week he goes off for the day to
some place 20 miles away Carnesford. I
think it is. He does not seem to have much
luck; anvhow, he never brings any fish
home. He is an awfully good fellow, Gul
ston; the best first lieutenant I ever sailed
with by a long way.?'
What Bonald Mervyn heard was not'
pleasant to him. He had noticed the at
tentions Gulston had paid to Margaret
Carne at the ball, and had "been by no
means pleased at meeting him installed at
The Hold with the shooting party, and the
thought that he had been twice a week over
in that neighborhood caused an angry sur
prise. The next morning he therefore tele
graphed home for a horse to meet him at the
station, and started as soon as lunch was
over. He stayed half an hour at home, for
his house lay on the line between the sta
tion and Carne's Hold. The answer he re
ceived from his sister to a question he put
did not add to his good temper.
Ob,jes. Mr. Gulston had called a day
or two alter he had been to the shooting
party, and they had heard he had been at
The Hold several times' since.
When he arrived there, Bonald found
that Margaret and her brother were both in
the drawing room, and he stood chatting
with them there for some time, or rather
chatting with Margaret, for Reginald was
dull and moody. At last the latter saun
"What is the matter with you, sir?"
Margaret said to her cousin. "You don't
seem to be quite yourself; is it the weather?
Beginald is duller and more silent than
usual; has hardly spoken a word to-day."
"No, it's not the weather"- he replied
sharply. "I want to ask you a question,
"Well, if vou ask it eivillv " the rfrl re
plied, "I will answer it, but certainly not
"I hear that that sailor fellow has been
coming here several times. What does it
Margaret Carne threw back her head
haughtily. "What do you meau, Bonald,
by speaking in that tone; are you out of
"Not more than the family in general,"
he replied grimly; 'but you have not
answered my question."
"I have not asked Lieutenant Gulston
what he comes here for," she said coldly;
"and besides, I do not recognize your right
to ask me such a question."
"Not recognize my -right," he repeated
passionately. "I should have thought that
a man had every right to ask such a ques
tion of the woman he is going to marry.
"Going to marry," she repeated scorn
fully; "at any rate this is the first I have
heard of it"
"It has always been a settled thing," he
said, "and you know it as well as I do.
You promised me ten years' ago that you
would be my wife some day."
"Ten years ago I was a mere child.
Bonald, how can you talk like thisl You
know we have always been as brother and
sister together. I have never thought of
anything else of late. You have been home
four or five months, anyhow, and you have
had plenty of time to speak if you wanted
to. You never said a word to lead me to
believe that you tbonght of me in any other
way than as a cousin.
"I thought we understood each other,
.Margaret" ' . vr
VI though?), too," the girl replied, "but
not in the same way.i--Oh,Bbnald, don't
say this; we have alwavs been such friends,
and perhaps years ago I mighthave thought
it would be somethiug more; but since then
I have grown up and grown 'wiser, and even
if I had loved you in the way you speak of,
I would not have married you, because I
am sure it would be bad for us both. We
have both that terrible curse in our blood,
and if there was not another man in the
world I would not marry you."
"I don't believe you would have said so
a month ago," Bonald Mervyn said, look
ing darkly at her. "This Gulston has come
between us, that's what it is, and you can
not deny it."
"You are not behaving like a gentleman,
Bonald," the girl said quietly.' ''You have
no right to say such things."
"I have a right to say anything," he burst
out "You have fooled me and spoilt mv
life, but you shall regret it You think
after all these years I am to be thrown by
like an old glove. No, by Heaven, you
may throw me over, but I swear you shall
never marry this sailor or any "one else,
whatever I do to prevent it. You say I
have the curse of the Carnes in my blood.
You are right, and you shall have cause to
He leapt from the window, which Mar
garet had thrown open a short time before,
for the fire had overheated the room, ran
down to the stables, leapt on his horse, and
rode off at a furious pace. Neither he nor
Margaret had noticed that a moment before
a man passed along the walk close under
the window. It was (Lieutenant Gulston.
He paused for a moment as he heard his
name uttered in angry tones, opened the
ball door without' ceremony, and hurried
toward that of the drawing room. Beginald
Carne was standing close to it, and it'flashed
across Gulston's mind that he had been
listening. He turned his head at the sail
or's quick step. "Don't go in there just at
present, Gulston, I fancy Margaret is hav
ing a quarrel with her cousin. They are
quiet now, we had best leave them alone."
"He was using very strong language,"
the sailor said, hotly. "I caught a word or
two as I passed the windows."
"It's a family failing. I fancy he has
gone now. I will go in and see. I think it
were best for you to walk off for a few min
utes, and then come back again. People
may quarrel with their relatives, you know,
but they don't often care for other people to
be behind the scenes."
"No; quite right," Gulston answered; "the
fact is, for the moment I was fairly fright
ened by the violence of his tone, and really
feared that 'he was going to do something
violent It was foolish, of course, and I
really beg your pardon. Yes, what you say
is quite right If you will allow me I will
have the horse put in the trap again. I got
out at the gate and walked across the gar
den, telling the man to take the horse
straight'round to the stables; but I think I
had better go and come again another day.
After such a scene as she has gone through,
Miss Carne will not care about having a
"No, I don't think that would be best,"
Beginald Carne said. "She would wonder
why you did not come, and ' would, likely
enough, hear from her maid, that you had
been and gone away again; and might guess
you had heard something of the talking in
there. No, I think you had better do as I
said go away, and come again in a few
The lieutenant accordingly went out and
walked about the shrubbery for a short
time, and then returned. Miss Came did
not appear at dinner, but sent down a mes
sage to say that she had so bad a headache
that she found she' would not be able to ap
pear that evening.
Beginald Carne did not play the part of
nost so well as usual. At times ne was
gloomy and abstracted, and then he roused
himself and talked rapidly. Lieutenant
Gulston thought that he was seriously dis
comrjosed at the Quarrel between his sister
and his cousin, and he determined at any
rate not to take the present occasion to carry
out tbe intention he had formed of telling
Beginald Carne that he was in love with
his sister and hoped that he would have no
objection to his telling her so, as he had a
good income beside his pay as first lieuten
ant When the men had been sitting silently
for some time after wine was put on the
table, he said:
"I think, Carne, I will not stop here to
night Your sister is evidently quite upset
with this affair, and no wonder. I shall
feel myself horribly de trop, and wonld
rather come again some other time, if you
will let me. It you will let your man put
a horse in the trap I shall catch the 10
o'clock train comfortably."
"Perhaps that would be best, Gulston. I
am not a very lively companion at the best
of times, and family quarrels are unpleas
ant enough for a stranger."
A few minutes later Lieutenant Gulston
was oc his way to the station. He had
much to think about on his way home. In
one respect he had every reason to he well
satisfied with what he had heard, as it had
left no doubt whatever in his mind that
Margaret Carne had refused the offer of her
cousin, and that the latter had believed that
he had been refused because she loved him,
Charlie Gulston. Ot course she had not
said so; still she could not have denied it,
or her cousin's wrath would not have been
turned upon him.
Then he was sorry that such a quarrel had
taken place, as it would probably lead to a
breach between the two families. He knew
Margaret was very fond of her aunt and the
igirls. Then the violence with which Bon
ald Mervyn had spoken had caused him a
deal of uneasiness; was it possible that a
sane man would have gone on like that?
Was it possible that the curse of the Carnes
was still working? This was an unpleasant
thought, but that which followed was still
Certainly, from the tone of his voice, he
had believed that Bonald Mervyn was on
the point of using violence to Margaret, and
if the man was really not altogether right
in his head there was no saying what he
might do; as for himself, he laughed at the
threats that had been uttered against him.
Mad or sane, he had not the slightest fear
of Bonald Mervvn. But if, as was likely
enough, this mail-brained fellow tried to fix
a quarrel upon him in some public way, it
might be horribly unpleasant, so unpleasant
that he did not care to think of it. He con
soled himself by hoping that when Mervyn's
first burst of passion had calmed down he
might look at the matter in a more reason
able light, and see that at any rate he could
not bring about a public quarrel without
Margaret's name being: in some way drawn
into it; that her cousin could not wish,
however angry he might be with her.
It was an unpleasant business. If Mar
garet accepted him he would take her away
from all these associations. It was marvel-
An flint clin urns nn lirialit tinrl rtianirn1
knowing this horrible story about the Span
ish woman, and that there was a taint in the
blood. That brother of hers, too, was enough
to keep the story always in her mind. The
doctor was certainly right about him. Of
course he wasn't mad, but there was- some
thing strange about him, and at times you
caught him looking at you in an unpleasant
sort of way.
"He is always very civil," the Lientenant
muttered to himself; "in fact, wonderfully
civil and hospitable, and all that Still I
never feel quite at my ease with him. If I
had been a rich , man, and they had been
hard up, I should have certainty suspected
that there was a design in his "invitations,
and that he wanted me to marry Margaret;
but, of course, that is absurd. He can't tell
that I have a penny beyond my pay; and a
girl like Margaret might marry anyone she
likej, at any rate out jf Devonshire. Per
haps he may not have nked the videaofher
marrying this cousin of hers; and no doubt
he is right there. And seeing, as I daresay
he did see, that I was taken with Margaret,
he thought it better, to give me a chance
than to let her marry Mervyn.
"I don't, care a snap whether all her rela
tions are mad or not I know that she is as
free from the taint as I am; but it can't be
wholesome for a girl to live in such an at
mosphere, and the next time I go overl will
put the question I'meant to put this even
ing, and if she says yes I will very soon get
her out of it all." And then the Lieuten
ant indulged in visions of pretty houses,
with bright gardens looking over the sea,
and finally concluded that a little place
near Byde or Cowes would be inieveryway
best and. most convenient, as being handy to
PortsB)outb..find far removed from lDevon-
step in about a year; then I will go on half
pay. I have capital interest, and I daresay
my cousin in the Admiralty will be able to
get me a dockyard appointment of some sort
.at Portsmouth; if not, I shall, of course,
give it up. I am not going to knock about
the world after I am married."
This train of .thought occupied him until
almost mechanically he left the trai,
walked down to the water, hailed a boat,
and was taken alongside his ship.

It Was Murder.
The Coroner's inquest on the death of Dr.
Charles H. Miller, who died in the West
Penn Hospital from wounds received in
some mysterious way, was concluded yester
day. He was found, as will be remembered,
in a box car on the Allegheny Valley Bail
road. The jury's verdict was that be came
to his death from wounds inflicted with a
blunt instrument in- the hands of persons
unknown. Special Officer Edward Fil
linger, of the Allegheny Valley Bailroad,
was censured for not making a more careful
investigation of the car in which Dr. Miller
was found. Coroner McDowell is confident
that it is a clear case of murder; the police
think otherwise. '
Mr. Pitts Will Not Prosecute.
Mr. E. W. Pitts, the Cashier of the Peo
ple's Bank, of McKeesport, who was as
saulted by Dr. W. D. Bankin, says he will
not prosecute the doctor. He says the doc
tor'didn't hurt him, and that the only blow
he received was one on the side of the head
by the doctor's fist.

Mr. Charles A. Miller Willingly Ap

A PART OF HIS TESTIMONY.
"I will tell you the story just as it is,
then you can judge of its importance your
self. It seemed very important to me, be
cause I felt, as my friends did, that my
trouble could not help but end in my being
obliged to give up work and everything else.
I was failing so steadily and surely."
It was Mr. Charles A. Miller who was
speaking. He has been engaged for a long
time at A. Speer & Sonfs Globe Works, on
Duquesne way, below Sixth street.
"It seemed to begin," he continued, "with
a cold and cough. My nose would run
freely. Then, after a time, it seemed to
clog up so, that I was hardly able to breathe
through it There, would be a dull pain in
my forehead, over my eyes, and ringing and
buzzing noise in my ears. My eyes would
fill with water, and were so weak and in
flamed that I could hardly see to read. I
had to be always hemming and hawking.

supposed to be a cold, or a succession of

accompanied by frequent palpitation of the

"I lost steadily in flesh. My sleep didn't
seem to do me any good. I would get up in
the morning feeling as tired as when I went
to bed. My appetite failed. Night sweats
weakened me terribly. I had feverish spells,
followed by a cold, chilly feeling, which
made me unfit for business. Whatever I
would take on my stomach seemed to rest
like a heavy load there. I would have a
feeling of discomfort and nausea after eat

hearty appetite, and would only eat a few
I tried everything and everybody, but
grew steadily wetker and worse. My head
and throat became almost unbearable. The
pains in my chest and night sweats in

case similar to my own which had been
treated and cured by Drs. Copeland &
Blair. I went to see them myself, and
found their charges verv reasonable and
within my means, though I am not a rich
man. Although they did not promise much,
I felt that they could help me.
They did, indeed. I improved steadily
from the start under their treatment My

THE FHAZIER CASE.
A Remarkable Statement Made byan Architect
Well Known in Both Ciliet, -
Mr. John G. Frazier, the architect "well
known in Pittsburg and Allegheny, for
merly a resident of the latter city, at pres
ent living at 5710 Kirkwood street, said:
"I was steadily and constantly losing in
flesh and strength. In a few months I had
fallen away over 25 pounds. My appetite
failed me. I could get no sleep. I was un
fit for work, unfit for everything. I dreaded
the slightest exertion;
didn t teel like see
ing or talking to any
body. I wts nervous,
weak, irritable and
despondent just managed-to
through my work
that was all. It seemed
as if I did not have
strength or ambition
enough to live. My
head got to be con
tinually affected. My
eyes began to trouble

Mr. Frpzler. 5ze(j that j was get
ting deaf. For over three months
I could hardly hear anything at all.
My eyes became dim and watery. They
grew so weak that I could hardly see to read
and had to wear glasses. For two yars
or more I realized that this catarrhal
trouble was extending, and it has
been within the Jast two years that I be
gun to experience its. constitutional
effect and could see, as my friends could, that I
was fast Roing down. There was difficulty Iu
breathing, and a sense of weight aud oppress
ion on my chest What little I did eat did not
seem to agree with me. My stomach would
feel as If It was overloaded as If there was a
weight on it. The sense of tasto and smell
seemed tobe gone. I was so weak I could
hardly get around. My muscles felt as if they
bad wasted away. I had read in the paper, of
the work that was being done by Drs. Copeland
& Blair. I went to see them. Their charges
seemed to me to be merely nominal, they were
sn low. 1 placed myself nnder their care.
