The Horrors of
A woman's account of torture which lasted three
years; of her struggles against the dreadful diseasey
and the good fortune that crowned her efforts.
Such suffering as rheumatism causes the
victims upon whom it fastens itself is al
Sufferers from the worst types of this ter
rible disease will supply the missing hor-
rors in the following story from real life.
Those who writnc under milder forms
of rheumatism will be able to imagine the
feelings of the tortured victim.
The only justification for making public
such heart-rending details is the fact that
the lesson taught will be helpful to others,
pointing the way to renewed life and health
to every sufferer from rheumatism.
The story is told by a woman. Her
name is Mrs. Caleb Fenly; she lives in
St. Paul, Ind.
This is her account:
441 am a farmer's wife. I believe my
frequent exposure to the weather caused
my terrible attack of rheumatism. Damp
weather always aggravated it.
44 My limbs would begin to swell at the
44 This swelling would begin in the night,
at times. I would awake in agony.
44 Daylight would find my limbs purple
in color, swollen to twice their natural size,
and so racked with pain I could not bear
to touch them.
44 My right arm and both leg* were so
drawn as to be almost useless.
44 My skin became dry and yellow.
44 At times my limbs would pain as
though millions of needles were pricking

could not feel a needle thrust into my flesh.
“I was confined to the house three
years, unable to walk nearly half the time.
“After those three slow years of agony,
during which I spent probably $2,000 for
treatment and tried a dozen doctors, I gav ••
up hope of any release from pain, but death.
" I was cured, completely cured, by Dr.
Williams’Pink Fills for Pale People. They
alone caused my recovery.
“ The first dose gave me appetite.
" After the second dose I slept soundly,
the first time within a year.
" I sent for a dozen boxes. By the time
I had taken the content: of eleven boxes I
felt entirely well.
“'I"he doctor said I was cured. He wai
greatly impressed, and since then he h. r.
prescribed Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills for Pale
People for many of his patients.”
Mrs. Fenly, together with h r husb.ind,
made affidavit to the exact truth c.f the fore
going account before Notary P. N.'I homas.
