Another Victim of Faith Cure Idiotcy.
Webster City, Jan. 15.—Mrs. Aggie Woods died at 1 o’clock this afternoon in this city, the victim of the faith cure, and the neighbors denounce the treatment accorded her as outrageous. She was deprived of a physician’s care, and all the faith cure people did was to sit by her bedside and tell her she would not die, and that it was the devil who was in her which made her think she would. Just before she lost consciousness she said: “Is this death? Is this death? Go away, devil." Her aged mother, standing by her side, said to the faith cures: “You have made her think the devil is in her, now drive it out.” But the scientists were powerless, and she died believing she was possessed with an evil spirit.
