An Act Of Kindness
Deep gratitude prompts the writer to make known through the columns of this paper the remarkable results in a few weeks that have taken place in the person of Miss Ada L. Knight of Martinsburg, N. Y., who since a small child has been, so to speak, a mere wreck in every sense of the word. Her parents never expected her to be able to do any kind of work. She was in such a nervous and anemic condition that nearly all who knew her thought she was going into consumption or nervous decline. When seen by the writer and asked for a statement to health, she gave the following statement, which is indeed very remarkable, after suffering so long and being treated by so many physicians without relief, and to think that the National Clinic treatment should restore her health in so short a time only goes to prove their superior skill over others. The doctor has had 24 years experience as a physician and surgeon in the leading hospitals of this country.
I called on Dr. Russell in Lowville on June 7th, so nervous that I could not do any kind of work. I could not sleep, had no appetite and was melancholy all the time. Today I am another person; I can eat, sleep and not nervous and hardly know myself.
Signed, Miss Ada L. Knight
Her Fathers Statement
My daughter has never been well since she was a baby. Dr. Russell has worked wonders in her case.
Signed, Collins O. Knight - Martinsburg, N.Y.
The above testimonial is only one of legions right here in New York State the writer could give, would space permit.
