Story Which Seems Too
Wonderful for Belief.
MISS SHORR'S MEMORABLE RIDE
The Doctor Said it Was f Imply Suicide, but
It Led to the Discovery ol a Remedy That
Cured This Young Lady of Consumption.
Toledo (O.) Blade, Oct. St.
We are about to publish the most re
markable experience which has ever
been known in the hbstory ot the world.
It occurred in Sidney, U.. und has all
the absorbing realism of a romance and
all the force of unquestionable truth.
Kol lowing is the statement, which can
l read with the greatest Interest:
"1 am a young lady, and like most
young ladles shrink from appearing In
public or seedng my name In print, but
J have passed through an experience
ho remarkable that 1 lee I compelled to
make It public. 1 know there are many
young ladles, elderly ladles und men,
too. tor mat matter, who are in the
very greatest danger, und yet do not
know It. To nil nuct my experience
will prove Invaluable.
"A little over two years ago I took a
severe cold. and. as ho many others
do. carelessly neglected It. It was very,
very annoying, und i kept thinking
every day it would pass away, but In
stead of doing ho It grew worse. 1
coughed coii.tlerably, but it wan not
the cough alone thut annoyed me. 1
wns frequently feverish. My Hps were
purohed, my breath hot. My appetite
was poor, and I lost In flesh dally.
Sometimes my cheeks' would be very
red. and ugain 1 would be as pale as
dentil. I tried to Hleep regularly, but
could not, and when 1 did sleep 1 was
troubled with horrible dreama. In this
way several month passed by until I
hi-i'unie so weak thut I was compelled
to take to my bed.
,-l cannot and do not believe the
greatest writer In the world could de
scribe what 1 miffered. For IS months
I was unable to help myself in the least,
und my mother, nisler und brother
were completely worn out taking care
of me. I had no les than seven differ
ent physicians, who came to gee tne
separutely. and were, also often In con
sultation together. One and all pro
nounced me Incurable, and said I must
dle. iJcyond the possibility of a doubt
I had consumption In Its last stages.
Of course, in addition to all the medi
cines of the doctors. I took cough sirups
and cod liver oils, which I hoped would
cure tne ut least bring me relief. Hut,
alas, none of them even eased my suf
fering. "One day ah! how well I remember
it my mother and sister came into my
room with tears rolling down their
cheeks. Between their sobs they told
me I had but a short time to live; that
the best physicians had said so, and
that they had done all in their power.
1 knew this, and was willing to die,
but the thought came to iie that I
would like to see our town once more,
nnd perhaps look Into the faces of some
friends. My mother and sister looked
amazed, and the physicians even more
so. 'It Is simply suicide.' they said,
and 'you certainly will never return to
the house alive.' But, with the weak
ness and willfulness nf a dying person,
1 insisted, and as the dny was pleas
ant, they finally yielded, and a carriage
was secured. In which was fitted up a
bed of pillows. I was carried out.'
placed in the carriage, and slowly
driven about the Court House square.
People looked on in wonder, and I was
relatives all stood about my bed expect -taken
home more dead than alive. My
in to see me die at any moment, while
my friends who had seen me driven out
came to call at the house. One of the
friends who called hud In her hand a
trial bottle of medicine, which had been
given her. It claimed to be a cure for
consumption, and she urged my mother
to nrlve me some of it.
"When so many able physicians hRve
declared that consumption cannot be
cured, and when In Its first stages it is
so difficult to check, how could any
medicine help me, on the verge of the
grave? But a drowning person will
grasp at a straw, and so my mother
gave me some of the remedy and con
tinued at short Intervals to administer
It. Somehow after taking two doses I
felt better, and no another bottle was
procured without delay. Very soon a
decided Improvement was noticed In
iny condition. I continued taking this
remedy, which was not only doing me
so much good, but was so pleasant to
the taste, and I solemnly ufflrm that
I owe my complete recovery and rescue
from the grave to Dr. Acker's English
Kennedy For Consumption, which was
the only thing that could or did save
me. Today I am as well as I ever was
In my life, strong nnd In perfect health.
Indeed my friends consider my recovery
nothing sort of a miracle.
"This, in brief, is the story of my suf
fering and salvation, and I wish that
every man, woman and child in Ameri
ca might know It. for I see so many
who are walking In the same danger
ous road that I was, neglecting what
they think are slight colds, but which
are certain to result in consumption,
and perhaps death, unless taken In
time. "BEKTHA SHORR."
