The following letter from Dr. J. W.
King needs no elucidation.
Your article in this morning's Taibuke
is erroneous. Dr. Ring at uo time express
ed h'tti elf as quoted. While the case is a
most desperate one, it does not necessarily
follow a fatal one. To be sure, Mr. Smitn
cannot stand many such severe hemor
rhages as the one he had from I a. ra.
until 11 :30, the time when I left him. He
has rallied agsiu, and at this writing, is
apparently safe. Scientitic medicine is
uowbere in it with "The Seven Booka of
Moses," and the ancient "Black Arts" of
Arabia. It is a pity that wo cannot today
mete out the same deserving punishments
as wero administered to witchcraftcy in
the colonial days in that great common
wealth, Massachusetts.
