1. In the beginning of last spring I was sorely plagued by a severe rheumatism of the right arm. It was not without extreme difficulty and the greatest pain that I could raise my hand to my head.

While I was at work at a bee-hive I received from an angry bee a sting under the thumb-nail, more painful than any I remember ever, feeling.

It was followed, in a short time, by the customary swelling which rapidly extended from the hand towards the arm.

In the same proportion however as the swelling extended — nay even more rapidly — every particle of rheumatic pain disappeared from the arm. Within a half hour from receiving the bee-sting this malady was completely and radically cured.

2. Towards the end of the summer, after getting thoroughly wet, the rheumatism appeared in the same arm, which seems especially disposed to that affection and was very painful for some days. On the strength of my experience, five months previously, I determined, this time, to get myself stung by a bee. Instead of one bee, two stung me on the hand smartly enough.

The result was the same; immediate swelling, instant vanishing of the rheumatic pain in the arm. It was gone in less than a quarter of an hour.

3. Editor Smith was last winter in the same condition. He had rheumatism in one arm, to such a degree that he could neither put on nor take off his over-coat without assistance. The doctor advised not to hope for a cure until pleasant weather. A knowledge of the preceding cases induced him to procure himself to be stung by a bee. In a few hours the rheumatism was radically cured.
