A remarkable case of medical efficiency and the recuperative powers of an eighty-four-year-old woman is inscribed in the records of the Jewish Home for the Aged of Rhode Island.

Mrs Annie Austin, octogenarian resident of the home, submitted to an operation at the Rhode Island Hospital. Within ten days she was discharged and today enjoys better health than she has known for many years.
