There's another possible reason for one
of Smart's shoulders to be higher than the
other.  Mr. Tilly seems to have killed his
dogs, wife, and son with side effects of
the "medicines" he was testing on them.
If he was trying out his new "hunchback 
medicine" on his assistant before he died,
this could account for Smart's shoulders.

It seems like this should have taken more
than five days, but I've argued before that
part of Smart's story of Mr. Tilly may be a 
lie (note that Smart is described as having 
a long nose) and that Mr. Tilly was really
poisoned by Smart.
