WHY HE DID NOT GO TO THE HOSPITAL HE COULD LEAP THROUGH THE AIR

My object m writing is two-fold ; to express my gratitqde for a great benefit, and to tell a short story which cannot f»ii to intprpsf: 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. 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 1 bad a very severe turn of it, worse, I think, than I eyer had before. It was probably brought on by catching pold, as we all are apto when we least expect it. Week? passed bj { and my trouble proved to be very obstinate. If would not yield to medicine, and as I also began fo have violent racking pains m my ljmbs and back, I bepame grpatly al^rnied. 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 seme new and terrible thing had got hold of me, which might make strength of oo avail against it, I say, bat was the way I thought. Presently I could not even lie down for the pain all over my body.

Who does, when he thinks he can possibly get along without it ? I am a laboring 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 njmd for months, or God only knows how long. Right at'this'ppint I had a fhought flash across my mind like a stream of sunshine ip a cloudy day. I had heard and read about Spottier Seigel's Curative Syrup, and I resolved, before consenting to be taken to the hospital, I would try that well-known r-medy. On this I gave up the doctor's medicine and began taking the ■Syrup. Mark the wonderful result I I had takepbut (three doses within twenty-four hours when I was seized with a fit of coughing, and threw up the phlegm and mucus off my chest by the mouthful. The Syrup had loosened and broken it up. Continuing with the Syrup, the raoking pain, which I believe came froaa 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 ouiet. Then I felt hungry, with a natural appetite, and $§ J ate I soon got strong and well. 1 felt I CouXd leap through the air with delight Thomas Canning: 75, Military-road, Canterbury, Kent, Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup is for sale by all chemists and medicine vendors : and by he Proprietors, A.
