WHY HE DID NOT GO TO THE HOSPITAL.

+ . My object in writing is. two-fold ; to expres my gratitude for a great benefit, and to tell a sb.ort store 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 brail' chitis, a complaint that you are aware is very common and troublesome in Great Britain in 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 apto when we least expect it. Weeks passed by, and my trouble proved to be very obstinate I would not yield to medicine, and as I also began to have violent racking fains" in my limbs and back, I became greatly alarmed, I could neither eat nor sleep. If I had been a ecble, sicky. man, I should have thought less strangely of it j 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 no avail against it. I say bat was the way I thought. But x 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 a large family depending on me for support, and I might almost as well be in my grave as to be laid on my back in a hospital unable to lift a hand tor months, or God only knows how long. Right at this pojnt I had a thought flash across. my mind, like a sttearii of Siinsftinc in a cloudy djty. IV4 heard a.nd read about Mother Seigei's Curative Syrup, and I resolved, before cpnsentlng to be tafecn to the hospital. I w<m»M .j ... u <. *vcii-Known remedy. On this I gave up the doctor's medicine and began taking the Syrup. Mark the wonderful result ! I had taken but three doses within twenty-four hours ' when I was seized with a fit of coughing, and threw up t|ie phjegm and, tnucus off ihy chest by the mduthfuT; 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, and I the bitter and poisonous humours in my blood felt like going to sleep, and I did sleep sound and quiet. Then I felt hungry, with a natural appetite, and as I ate I soon got strong and In a week I was able to go to my work •glim It totw't icem pwibfe, yet it is true.
