WEY HE DID NOT GO TJ THE HOBPITAL HE COULD LEAP THROUGH THE AIR My object m writing is two-fold ; to express 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 use to his fellow-creatures.c atures. 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 Greit 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 b;fore. 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 nay limbs and back, I became greatly a'armed. I could nei'her 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, I was ' hearty and robusts I feared , some new and terrible thing had got hold of me, which might j make strength of no avail against it. I say, hat 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, '• I am 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 mmt go to the Hospital', it may t>o your only chance for ife\" But I didn't want to goto the hospital. Who does, when he tfc inks he can possibly get along without it ? I am a laboring man, with a I 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 Sejgel'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 -yrup. Mark the won erful result ! I had taken but three doses within twenty-f ur hours when I was seized with a fit of coughing, and threw up the phlegm and mucus oft my chest by the mouthful. The Syrup had loosened and broken it up. Continuing with the Syrup, the raoking 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, wi*h a natural appetite, and as I ate I soon got strong and well. 1 felt I cou r d leap through the air with delight In a week I was able to go to my work again. It doesn't seem possible, yet it is true, and the neighbours know it. And, therefore, when I say I preach the good nsirs of the great power* of Seigel's Syrup to cure pain and disease far and widef nobody will wonder tit me.
