fIOW PILLS ARIS MADifi The Custom of taking medicine m the form of pills dates far back m history. The object is to enable us to swallow easily m a condensed form disagreeable and nauseous, but very useful, drugs. To what vast dimensions pill taking has grown may be imagined, when we say that m Jtngland alone about 2,000,000,0c0 two thousand million) pills are consumed every ye* In early days pills were made slowly by hand, as the demand was comparatively small. To-day they are produced m infinitely greater rapidity by machines especially conuived lor the purpose, smd with greater accuracy, too, m the proportions of the various ingredients employed. JNo lorm ol medication cam be better than pill, provided only it is intelligently prepared Jtfut right here occurs the difficulty.

As everybody takes pills oi some kind, it may be well to mention what a good, sale, and reliable pill should be. Now, wnen one feels dull and sleepy, and has more or less pain m the head, siaes, and back, he may be sure bis bowels are constipated, and vis liver slucgish. To remedy this unhappy state ot things there is nothing line a good cathartic pLUT It will act like a charm by stimulating the liver into doing its duty, and ridding the digestive organs oi the accumulated poisonous nutter. • _ • But the good pill does not gripe and pain US. neither does it make us sick and miserable for a few hours or a whole day.

Tne griping caused by most pills is tne result of irritating drugs whicn they contain, bucn pills are harmlui, and should never be used. They sometimes even produce hemorrhoids. Without having any particular desire to praise one pill above another, we may, nevertheless, name Mother Stigel's Fills, manufactured by the well-known house of A. J. White, Limited, 35, Farringdon Roa_, J_ondon, and now sold by all chemists and tneoicine vendors, as the only one we know oi that actually possesses every desirable quality. They iemove the pressure upon the brain, correct the Uver, and cause the bowels to act With case and regularity. Tney never gripe or produce'the slightest sickness of the stomach, or any other unpleasant leeling or symptom Neither do tney induce lunner cotistipauoa as nearly all other pills do .
