The Miraculous Change

For nine years Mrs. Julia B. Adams had been a hopeless invalid. For six years she had lain in bed, as helpless as an infant, but this past Monday she walked proudly into Jefferson Market police court and gave evidence that would help to convict the two men who were the unconscious instruments of her restoration. The excitement of hearing noises in the night, and by the discovery of thieves who had broken into the house and had removed $800 worth of silver, worked on her feelings so powerfully that she amazed her family by getting out of bed and walking about the house like one of themselves.
