As far back as I can remember, I have suffered from terrible headaches,--inherited, so the doctor said, my grandmother and mother having suffered before me. I tried many physicians during the past twenty-one years, and all, without a single exception, gave me morphine and atrophine hypodermically. I was opposed to these drugs and would suffer untold agony before I would take them. I seldom went over three weeks without having a headache; and have lain for six days without eating or swallowing anything except an occasional sip of water.

My health grew worse, and I suffered more and more; for now it was not only my head but my heart and spine. The last six months of this existence (I cannot call it life) I was in bed most of the time, and took a strychnine tonic so strong that the pharmacist who filled the last prescription said one dose would kill a man; I took three doses a day. This was my condition in October, 1903, when heart-failure set in. I had three attacks, and sent for a Christian Scientist. I began taking treatment the 31st of October, and the 4th of November I was able to be up.
