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 abou|t 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 all are ap. to when we least expect it. Weeks passed by, and my trouble proved to be very obstinate It wpuld not yield to medicine, and as I also began to have violent rackjng pains m my 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, I was hearty and robusts I feared some new and terrible thing had got hold of me, which might make strength of no avail against it, 1 pay, hat was the way I thought. In a weeMl 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 powe>T of Seigel's Syrup to cure plan and disease far and widef nobody will wonder at me.

Thomas Canning: 75, Mihtary-road, Canterbury, Kent. " Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup is for say by all chemists and medicine vendors i and be he Proprietors, A. G. White, Limited, 35 Farnngdomroad, London, E. C.. England. ( 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 1" This so frightened my friends, as well as myself, that they said " Thomas, you must go to thr Hotpital', it may* he your only chance foe ifeV

But j didn't want to goto the hospital. Who does, when he V inks he can possibly get along without it? I am a laboring man, with a large family depending on me fpr 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, oj Qod only knowi 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 hear 1 and read about Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup, and I resolved, before consenting to be take" to the hospital, I would try that well-known r"medy. On this I gave up the doctor's medicine and began taking the ->yrut>. Mark the won erful result ! I had taken but 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 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, wUh a natural appetite, and as I ate I soon got strong and well. I felt I cou 7 d leap through tho air with delight _______^^__
