Berryman Whelchel with Measles - A singular and interesting case of measles,...
A singular and interesting case of measles, long drawn out, is attracting the attention of persons in the city conversant conversant with the facts. Berryman Whelehel, whom we mentioned a short X ime ago as tiie recipient of a handsome n.nd much needed pension from the gov ernment, was a member of company D. J-sxth J-sxth J-sxth Kansas cavalry. In the fall of 18(12 Jdr. Whetchel. w hile on duty ' with his regiment in Miaou ri. was attacked with t he measles, and while in that condition was placed on guard duty. The weather vanned suddenly cold and wet, and tak- tak- i.nc colli, the measles "struck in." From t hat time forward his health continued to fail, until finally he was discharged for tiisabilitv. He has never been a well Baan sinca. His lungs appeared to be jsfl'eeted and it was supposed tiiat he had -.consumption. -.consumption. During the past twenty-'Jiree twenty-'Jiree twenty-'Jiree years many physicians have examined examined and treated him for lung trouble Lmt without avail, and for a year or two .roast, as the members of the G. A. R. post well know, he has been almost help-Less, help-Less, help-Less, and his death was thought to be ivsily a question of a short time. A short tJirne since Dr. A. P. Turner, who is hi in-self in-self in-self a member of the G. A. 1!., was con-salted con-salted con-salted and at once made a very careful examination of Whelchel's condition mid after inquiring minutely into the hitory of his sickness, astonished his patient by informing him tfcat he still had the measles, and to prove it, at once went to "bring them out." In this he has succeeded admirably. On Friday V. J. Meurer, Isaac Keeth and Dev. Dr, Murchison had occasion to call on Mr. Whelehel on business, and they all ag-ee ag-ee ag-ee that they never saw a liner specimen of iu casks than he presented. Then' is god reason for believing that Mr. Vt'helehel will now get through with the measles die had iheni long enough ) and that his health will be very much better better if not cniin.lv restored. .Monitor.
