AN INTERESTING LETTER FROM A VETERAN.

As this is jubilee year it tends to make one look back and think of the flight of time, and m this way I am reminded that I am one of the veterans m the sale of your valuable and and successful medicine. I have sold it m England and many parts of Scotland. Well 4q I remember the f>rst circular you sent out some nine, or ten years ag«. You had come tg England from America to introduce Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup, and I was struck by a paiagraph m which you used these words : — " Being a stranger m a &trange land, I do not wish the people to feel that I want to take the least advantage over them. I feel that I have a remedy that will cure disease, and I have so much confidence m it that I authorise my agents to refund the money if people should say that they ha*e not benefitted by its use.' ? I felt at once that you would never say that unless the medicine had merit, and I applied for the agency, a sfcep which % now look back upon with pride and satisfaction. Ever since that time I have found it far the best remedy for Indigestion and Dyspepsia I have met with, and I have sold thousands of bottles. It has never failed m any case where there were any of the following symptoms :— Nervous or sick headache, sourness of the stomach, rising of the f«od after eating, a sense of heaviness and fulness, dizziness bad breath, slime and mucus on the gums and teeth, constipation, and yellowness of the eyes and skin, dull and sleepy sensations, ringiDg m the ears, heartburn, loss of appetite, and, m short, wherever there are signs that the system is clogged, and the blood is out of order. Upon repeated inquiries, coveting a great variety of ailments, my customers have always answered, " I am better," or " I ana perfectly well." Wh.at J have seldom or never seen before m the case of any medicine is that people tell each other of its virtues, and those who have been been cured say to the suffering ; " Go and get Mother Seiget's Curative Syrup, it will make you well." Out of the hundreds of cures I will name one or two that happen to come into my mind. Two old gentlemen, whose names they would not like me to give you, had been martyrs to Indigestion for many years. They had tried all kinds of medicine without relief. One of them was so bad he could not bear a glass of ale. Both were advised to use the Syrup and both recovered, and were as hale an.4 Hearty as met) m the pm.e of life
