WHY HE DID NOT GO TO THE HOSPITAL HE COULD LEAP THROUGH THE AIR My object m writing is two-fold j to expres my gratitude for a great benefit, and to tell a short story which cannot fail to interest the feelings of many others. It is all about myself, but I have remarked that when a man tells the honest truth about himself he is all the more likely to be of ussj^o his fellow-crtatures. To begin, then, you must know I had long been more or less subject to attacks of bronchitis, a complaint that you are aware is very common and troublesome m Great Britain m certain seasons of the year. Some months ago I had a very severe turn of it, worse, I think, than I ever had before. It was probably brought on by catching cold, as we all are apto when we least expect it. Weeks passed by, and my trouble proved to be very obstinate, It would not yield to medicine, and as I also began to have violent racking pains m roy limbs and back, I became greatly alarmed. I ! could neither eat nor sleep, If I had been a feeble, sicky. man, I shou d have thought less strangely of it ; but as, on the contrary, 1 was hearty and robusts I feared s»me new and terrible tbing had got hold of me, which might make strength of no avail tgainst it. I say, that was the way I thought. Presently I could not even lie down for the pain all over my body.' I asked my doctor what he thought of my condition, and he frankly said, 'lam sorry to have to tell you -that you are getting worse I " This so frightened my friends, as well as myself, that they said " Thomas, you must go to the Hospital) it may be your only chance for ifel" But I didn't want to go to the hospital. Who does, when he V inks he can possibly get along without it ? I am a I) boring man, with a large family depending on me for support, and I might almost as well be m my grave as to be laid on my back m a hospital unable to lift a hand for months, or God only knows how long. Right at this point I had a thought flash across my mind like a stream of sunshine m a cloudy day. I had heard and read about Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup, and I resolved, before consenting to be taken to the hospital, I would try that well-known remedy. On this I gave up the doctor's medicine and began taking the Syrup. Mark the wonderful result ! I had taken but three doses within twenty-four hours when I was seized with a fit of coughing, and threw Jup the phlegm and mucus off my chest by the mouthful. The Syrup had loosened ■ and broken it up. Continuing with the Syrup, the racking pain, which I believe came from and joints, soon left me entirely, and I the bitter and poisonous humours m my blood ' felt like going to sleep, and I did sleep sound ' and quiet. Then I felt hungry, wMi a natural > appetite, and as I ate I soon got strong and ' well. 1 felt I cou 7 d leap through the air with \ delight I In a week I was able to go to my work I again. It doesn't seem possible, yet it is true. ( and the neighbours know it. And, therefore, I when I say I preach the good news of the great power]; of Seigel's Syrup to cure pain and disease far and widef nobody will wonder at me.
