Who Failed to Give Her the Desired
Rcllcf-Curcd by Dr. Smith at 313 Wy
oming Ave., Scranton.
Miss Llna McCray, who resides at
Marion, Pa., aged 27 years, has been a
great sufferer for the. past eleven years.
Miss iMcCray'H mother was ambitious
that she should become a school teacher
consequently her training from the age
of 12 to 16 years was a forced one. Be
ing naturally of a nervous tempera
ment the long hours of study gradually
exhausted her vitality. Her nervous
system became completely worn out.
She became so weak and languid that
she could not concentrate her mind
upon her studies. Fanciful and vague
Ideas took possession of her. She be
came averse to shutting a door nnd
could not be Induced to step on the
threshold, neither could she be Induced
to button her shoes. She then took It
into her head that she would be acci
dentally poisoned. Two months later
sho was suffering from a stricture ot
the (oesephagus) throat and could not
swallow any solid food and for nine
years all food taken Into her stomach
had to be reduced to a liuld form. Her
flesh gradually disappeared and she be
came a mere skeleton. After all hope
of her recovery had been abandoned
she was taken to Dr. Smith, at No. 312
Wyoming avenue, and Is now eating
three square meals each day. Not a
vestige of the stricture remains and she
Is a well girl. She received seven mag
netic treatments In all.
