My object m writing is two-fold j to express my gratitude for a great benefit, add to tcU A short story which cannot foil to interest the feelings of many othera. 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 gttacfcs of br<m chjtis,, a complaint that you are aware js very pommon and troublesome m Great Britain m certain seaspns of the year. Spine montns ago I had a very severe turn of it, worse, I think than I ever had before, It was prqb.abjy brought on by catphing qqld, as we aU are ao« *o when we least expect it. Weeks passed by, and my trouble proved to, be very obstinate It would nQt yield to rnefliQine, arid as I also Qegan to ftaye violent racking pains m my limbs and back, I became greatly alarmed. I could neither eat nor sleep. If I had been a. eeble, sicky. man, I should 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. I say, hat was the way I thought, But I didn't want to go to the hospital. Who does, when he thinks he can possibly get along without it? I am a laboring man. with * , large family depending ojx me far support, and I might alraotfaswell be m ray grave as tobe lalfon, my back m a hospital unable to lift a hand for months, Qr God only knows how long. Right »t this point I had a thought fla^h across wy wind Ufo a. |twm of iwAibc to • cloudy

day. I had heard and read about Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup, and I resolved, before consenting to be taken to the hospital, I Would I try that well-known remedy. On this I gave ty the doctor's medicine and began taking the yru . Mark the won erful result ! 1 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, thi racking pain, which I believe came from S joints, soon left me entirely, ani I bitier and poisonous humours m my blood like going to sleep, and I did sleep sound quiet, Then I ielt hungry, wi^h a natural appetite, and as I ate I soon got strong and well In a week I was able to go to my work agaib. It doesn't seem possible, yet it is true, and the neighbours know it. And, therefore, whJejri I say I preach the good news of the great*, power" of Seigel's Syrup to cure pian and disease far and widef nobody will wonder at me* > : Y Thomas Canning; I 75, Military-road, Canterbury, ''-'■ Kent.
