[Br A FAMILY DOCTOR.] ——— A SHINGLES SUPERSTITION. Shingles is a complaint which is rat-her mysterious in its origin. It must be con- nected in some way with the nerves, because the painful blisters appear along the course of a nerve. It may appear on the face or forehead-an unfortunate situation, as it may leave scars behind when it has healed. A common place, also, is the side of the body running parallel with the ribs. It may occur symmetrically on each side, but do not believe the old wives' tale that if the blisters meet, the death of the patient is cer- tain. I strongly object to these silly super- stitions; they do real harm in frightening people who already have enough to put up with in bearing the pain of their illness.
