Monterey girl suffers from hiccups

Miss Laura Belle Tosh, 18, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Tosh, of Monterey, has been hiccupping since Friday afternoon.

The girl hiccupps on an average of thirty-five times a minute. With her malady, she suffers headache, and is growing weak from the constant strain. She is being observed by Dr. T.M. Crain and Dr. O.H. Moyer, and has rest from the hiccups only when under a ‘opiate’.

On Monday afternoon she hiccupped so hard that the jerking threw her from her cot.
