WHY HE DID NOT GO TO THE HOSPITAL . — «. . 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, 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 aU 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 my limbs and back, I became greatly alarmed. I could nei'her eat nor sleep. If I had been a feeble, sicky. man, I shou d have thought less strangely of it j but as, on the contrary, I was hearty and robusts I feared some new and terrible tbiDg had got hold of me, which might make strength of do avaU against it. I say, hat was the way I thought. In a week^l 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 news of the great power' of Seigel's Syrup to cure pian and disease far and widef nobody will wonder at me. Thomas Canning: 75, Military-road, Canterbury, Kent. Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup is for say by all chemists and medicine vendors : and be he Proprietors, A; G. White, Limited, 35 Farringdomroad, London, E. C., England. ( Holloway's Ointment and Pills will be found the best friend to persons afflicted with ulcerations, bad legs, sores, abscesses, fistulas and other painful and complicated complaints. Printed and very plain directions for the application of the Ointment are wrapped round each pot. Holloway's alterative Pills should be taken throughout the progress of the cure, to maintain the blood m a state of perfect purity, and to prevent the health of the whole body being jeopardised by the local ailments; bad legs, old age's great grievances, are thus readily cured, without confining the patient to bed or withdrawing from him or her the nutritious diet and generous support so imperatively demanded, when weakening diseases attack advanced years ©constitutions evincing, premature decrepitude
