CONDEMNED.
When an innocent man ia condemned tat
any crime ht doesn't I owe hope. His lev
vera appeal rrom on
court to another.
They are bound to
save aim, if be can
be saved. It is tbe
same way with a
good doctor when
bis patieat Qems
condemned to death
bv disease.
But doctor make
mistakes some
times; tbey lose
heart too soon.
After they have
tried everything
they know an9
th patieat it
ao better, tbey
think there is
nothing more to
be done. They
don't always
get at the root
of the disease.
Tbey frequently
give a patient
up to die of con
aumntion. and
are afterwards surprised to sea bim
strong and well acia.
