    Fact 1 Ruben became interested in medicine when he was a boy. He eventually grew up to become a Root Doctor. A Root Doctor would administer plants and roots instead of medicine to cure ailments. Today the closest thing to a Root Doctor is an Herbalist. The following is Rubens account of an incident when he was a little boy.

    "Having always had a desire to read medical works and to be instrumental in relieving suffering humanity, when I was but nine years old my sister's oldest girl Melinda was very low with diarrhea several days with atopathy and Dr. Gray of Cambridge, Pennsylvania told about a root and that if that failed, there was no hope. The Doctor was giving a description of the root to my parents and how to use it. I ran and gathered as much as I could hold in my hand and returned before the Doctor left. He says "Here, this lad has a fine lot of it; he will make a Root Doctor yet".
