If we are to credit the Philadelphia North
American, no citizen of the United States
need languish in extreme incurable pain.
He may get himself killed out of hand.  The
Philadelphia journal says : -- "A little girl,
twelve years of age, living in the Nineteenth
Ward, was nipped in the finger by a dog, on
the afternoon of July 12.  Her name was
Georgina M'CREADY.  Three days ago she
was seized by the premonitions of hydrophobia.
The most distinguished of the profession of
medicine were called to her rescue.  By her
sanction, with that of friends, relatives, and all
to whom the life of the child was dear, her
sufferings were stayed by the merciful
interposition of poison."
