FROM A VETERAN, As this is jubilee yen it tends to make on look back and think of the flight of time, and m this way I am reminded that I am one of the veterans m the sale of your valuable and and successful medicine. I have sold it m England and many parts of Scotland. Well 0 I remember the first circular you sent out some nine or ten years ag». You had come to England from America to introduce Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup, and I was struck by a paragraph m which you used these words : — " Being a stranger m a strange land, I do not wish the people to feel that I want to take the least advantage over them. I feel that have a remedy that will cure disease, and I have so much confidence m it that I authorise my agents to refund the money if people should ay that they ha»e not benefitted ts use."y Two old gentlemen, whose names then would not like me to give you, had bees, martyrs to Indigestion for many yea rut They had tried all kinds of medicine withoot relief. One of them was so bad he could nse bear a glass of ale. Both were advised to uas the Syrup and both recovered, and were hale and hearty as men m the prime of life. A remarkable case is that of a house pain named Jetferies, who lived at Penshurst, Kent. His business obliged him to expod himself a great deal to wind and weather, an s he was seized with rheumatism, and hi joints soon swelled up with dropsy, and were very stiff and painful. Nothing that the doctors could do seemed to reach the seat of the trouble. It so crippled him that he could do hardly any work, and tor the whole of the winter of 1878 and '79, he had to give upund take to hisbed. He had been afflicted m this sorry way for three years, and was getting worn out and disccuraged. Besides, he had spent over £13 for what he called " doctor's I stuff " without the least benefit. In the Spring I he heard of what Mother Seigel s Curative Syrup has done for others and bought a 2s 6J bottle of me. In a few days he sent me word he was much better— before he had finished the bottle. He then sent to me for a4s 6d bottle, and as I was going that way I carried it down to him myself. On getting to his house what was my astonishment and surprise ' to find him weeding an onion bed. I could hardly believe my own eyes, and said :— " You ought not to be out here, man, itp be the death of you, after havicg being lai all winter with rheumatism and dropsy." His reply was : •' There is no danger. The weather is fine, .and Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup has done for me m a few days what the octorc could not do <n three years. I think shall get well now." He kept on with the syrup, and m threa weeks he was at w<»k again, and has had no return of the trouble or now nearly ten years. Any medicine thai :nn do this should be known all over the w rid. Yours faithfully, (Signed) Rupert Graham. Of Graham * Son.

WHY HE DID JNOT GO TO THE ' HOSPITAL ] * — , HE COULD LEAP THROUGH THE ' AIR. My object m writing is two-fold ;to express 1 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. To begin, then, you must know I had long been more or less subject to attacks of bron- - 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 j 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 E limbs and back, I became greatly alarmed. I B could nci'her eat nor sleep. If I had been a f feeble, sickiy. man, I shou d have thought less t strangely of it ; but as, on the contrary, I was c hearty and robust I feared some new and v terrible thing had got hold of me, which might ] make strength of no avail against it. I say ] hat 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, "I am 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 the Hospital ; it may be your only chance for life 1" But I didn't want to go to the hospital. Who does, when he tbinks 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 m my grave as to be laid on my back m a hospital unable to lift a hand tor months, or God only knows how long. Right at this point I had a thought flash across my mind like a stream of sunshine m a cloudy day. I had heard and read about Mothet Seigel's Curative Syrup, and I resolved, before consenting to be taken to the hospital, I Would try that well-known remedy. On this I gave up the doctor's medicine and began taking the j 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 the phlegm and mucus off my chest by the mouthful. The Syrup had loosened and broken it up. Continuing with the Syrup, ' the raoking pain, which I believe came from 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 felt hungry, with a natural appetite, and .is I ate I soon got strong and welL 1 felt I could leap through the air with delight In a week I was able to go to my work again. It doesn't seem possible, yet it is true, and the people know it. And, therefore, hen I iay I preach the good news of the great power of seigcl's Syrup to cure pain and disease far and wide, nobody will wonder at me Thomas Canning 75, Military-road, Canterbury, Kent, Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup is for sale by all chemists and medicine vendors : and by the Proprietors, A. J. White, Limited, 35, Farringdonjroad, London, E. C., England. 1 HOW PILLS ARE MADE The Custom of taking medicine m the form of pills dates far back m history. The object js to enable us to swallow easily m a condensed form disagreeable and nauseous, but very use* fill, 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 are consumed every yf* 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 withgreate accuracy, too, m the proportions of the various ngredients employed. No form ot medication oa» be better than pill, provided only it is intelligently prepared But right here occurs the difficulty. Easy as / may seem to make a pill, or a million of the m there are really very few pills that can be honestly pommended 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 mbis bowels are constipated, ana his liv slupgish. 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 digestive organs of the accumulated poisonous matter. Public Notices. RANGITATA ROAD DISTRICT.
