I 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 aboiu 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 bronchitis, a complaint that you are aware is very common and troublesome m Great Britain m certain seasons of the year. Some months ago 1 had a very severe turn of it, worse, I think, than I evet had before. It was probably brought on by catching cold, as we all are apt , 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 limbs and back, I became greatly alarmed. I could neither eat nor sleep. If I had been a feeble, sickly, man, I should have thought less strangely of it ; but as, on the contrary, I was hearty and robust I feared seme new and terrible thing had got hold of me, which might make strength of no avail against it. I ' say that was the way I thought. Presently I could not even lie down for the pain all over my body. I asked my doctor what he thought of my condition, and he frankly said, "lam sorry to have to tell you you are getting worse I" This so frightened my friends, as well as myself, that they said, '* Thomas, you must go to tht Hospital : it may be your only chatue for life 1" But I didn't want to go to the hospital. Who docs, when he t Links he can possibly get along without it ? I am a laboring man, with a large family depending on me for support, and I niight almost as well be m my grave as to be laid on my back m a hospital unable to lift a hand lor months, or God only knows how long. Right at this point I had a thought flash across my raind like a stream of sunshine m a cloudy day. I had heard and read about Mothd tieigel's Curative Syrup, and I resolved, before consenting to be taken to the hospital, 1 would try that well-known jrmedy, On this I gave up the doctor's medicine and began taking the oyruj.. Mark the wonaerral 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, the racking pain, which I believe came iron the bitter and poisonous humours m my blood and joints, soon left me entirely, and I felt like going to sleep, and I did sleep sound and quiet. Then I ielt hungry, wfrh a natural appetite, and as I ate I soon got strong and I felt I could leap through the air with delight In a week I was able to go to my work again. J t doesn't seem possible, yet it is true, and the people know it. And, therefore, when I say I preach the good news of the great r-ower ©f aeigcl's syrup to cure pain and disease far and wide, nobody will wonder at me.

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 ye-* 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 especi ally contrived for the purpose, and with greater accuracy, too, m the proportions of the various ngredients employed. No form ot medication oaa be better than pill, provided only it is intelligently prepared Hut right here occurs the difficulty. Easy as i may stem to make » 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 pilb 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 mbis bowels are constipated, and his liv sluggish, To remedy this unhappy state oi things there is nothing like a good cathartic pill. It will act like ft charm by stimulating the liver into doing its duty, ana ridding the digestive organs of the accumulated poisonous matter. _____________________ "Rough on Corns. 1 —Ask j for Wells 'Rough on Corns.'
