Peru, Ind., Feb. 8, 1897.
To the Editor:
—I see in the Journal of February 6, a reference to the Illinois Health University, now Independent Medical College, of which one J. Armstrong is president, secretary, treasurer, etc. We have had here a little experience with one or more of his graduates, one Dr. Elmor (?) who struck our town last summer, with long hair, a good supply of cheek, but little money and glowing advertisements, prepared as he thought to bluff everything in sight; but for once he overlooked his hand. We made him lie down, shut up, and get out, as we have all other advertising quacks of similar qualifications, coming to our town. If you will send J. Armstrong and his college down to Peru, we will turn his college into a hospital and make him the leading patient.My idea about his college is to suppress his graduates,
