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 bran chitis, a complaint that you are aware is very common and troublesome m Great Britain m certain seasons of the year. Spine months ago 1 had a very seyere^turn of it, worse, I think tljah I ever had before. It was probably brought on by catching cold, as we all are ap- J to 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 fjmbs and back, I became greatly alarmed, I could neither eat nor sleep. Jf I had been a eeble, sicky. man, 1 1 shtw'd have thought |ess 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 nq avail against it, I say, hat was the way I thought. In a week I 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 nob,ody will \vond,er at m<s, • ' ' > •* ' 1 '' Thomas Canning: 75, Military-rqad, Canterbury, I Kent, Mother Selgpl's Curative Syrup Is for say by all chemists and medicine vendors ; and be he Proprietors, A.

I atp 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 hand for months, or God only knows 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 heard and read about Mother > Seigcl'p Curative SjmiPi m 4 I resolved, trcfpn 1 ■* •

' consenting to be taken to the hospital,_ I would J try that well-known remedy. On this 1 gave . up the doctor's medicine and began taking the Syrup. Mark the won erful result ! I had taken but three doses wi'hin 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, ani I the bitter and poisonous humours m my blood felt like going to sleep, and I did sleep sound , and quiet.
