HOW PILLS ARE MADE

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 England alone about 2,000,000,000 two thousand million) pills a r e consumed every yro 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 contrived for the purpose, and with greater accuracy, too, m the proportions of the various ingredients employed. No form ot medication oan be better than a pill, provided only it is intelligently prepared. But right here occurs the difficulty. Easy as it may seem to make a pill, or a million of them there are really very few pills that can be honestly commended for popular use. Most of them either undershoot or overshoot the mark. As everybody takes pills of some kind, it may be well to mention what a good, safe, and reliable pill should be. Now, when one feels dull and sleepy, and has more or less pain m the head, sides, and back, he may be sure bis' bowels are constipated, and his liver sluggish, To remedy this unhappy state of things there is nothing like a good cathartic pill. It will act like a charm by stimulating the liver into doing its duty, and ridding the digescive organs of the accumulated poisonous matter. But > the good pill dees not eripe and pain us, neither does it make us sick and miserable for a. few hours or a whole day. It acts on the entire glandular system at the same time, else the after-affects of the pill will be worse than the disease itself. Tne griping caused by most pills is the result of irritating drugs which they contain. Such pills are harmful, and should never be used. They sometimes even produce hemorrhoids.

A coated tongue, with a rackish taste m the mouth is caused by four matter m the stomach. A dose of Seigel's Fills will effect a speedy cure.
