—Mrs. W. F. M., age 29 years, a farmer's wife, who had been delivered of a female child Feb. 10, 1902, was admitted to the Southwestern Hospital, Elk City, Okla., March 12, 1902.
—Patient's own statement: "I have always been stout and well, have given birth to three children, one aged 4, one aged two years, and the one just recently born. When my labor came on I sent for a midwife, Mrs. Hughes, my neighbor who lives near by, and when my child was born I was so nearly dead we sent for a physician, who came and said I had a large tumor, gave me some medicine and left the house."The social and family history of this patient gives no information other than that she was without constitutional taint and had always followed a plain and simple mode of living.
