Michigan, where he prepares his own
food, chooses his companions from the
few fishermen that live nearby .and

Dislike for conventions of all kinds
and a wish to be allowed to live his
own existence in his own way the in
fluences which have led the scientist
to leave his pleasant apartments for
the lonely hut beside the lake.
The hut or cottage in which Dr.

feet square. It Is simply furnished,
consisting of a table and chairs, and

writes Ralph F, Fernandes of Tampa,

heart disease, which had robbed me of
sleep and cf all Interest In life. I had
tried many different doctors and sev

wonderful was their effect, that In
hree days I felt like a new man, and
today I am cured of all my troubles."
