John Hopkins of Centerburg, Ohio, age 58, weight 175 pounds, medium height, general health good, March 10, 1896, had an attack of severe renal colic on right side. He passed from his bladder, according to his own statement, a pint of blood during the first twenty-four hours. He had eight similar attacks during the month of March.
