WHY HE DID NOT GO TO THE HOSPITAL

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, i 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. 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« !tp when we least expect it. Weeks passed by, and my trouble proved to be very obstinate It would npt yield to medicine, and as I also began to have violent racking pains m my j limbs and back, I became greatly alarmed. I could neither eat nor sleep. If I had been a eeble, sicky. man, I shou.d have thought less strangely of it ; but as, on the contrary, I was hearty and robust* I feared some new and terrible thing had got hold of me, which might make strength of no avail against it.

I had heard and read about Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup, and I resolved, before consenting to be taken to the hospital, I 'would try that well-known wmedy, On thw I gave up the doctor's medicine and began taking the .Syrup. Mark the wonderful result I 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 racking 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.
