When a child I had a very severe at

neck were very much enlarged, and after
the free use of iodine, the right one was
reduced to its normal size, but the left
one continued to grow very slowly at
first, until it was about the size of a goose
egg, which began to press on the wind
pipe, causing difficult breathing, end be
came very painful. An incision was made
and a large quantity of pus discharged.
The gland was removed, or as much as
could with safety be taken out. For ten.
years I wore a little piece of cloth about an
inch long in my neck to keep the place
open. During this time I had to have it
cut open by the doctor every timel took
cold or the opening clogged. In the Spring
