WHY HE DID JNOT GO TO THE HOSPITAL — ... - ♦ HE COULD LEAP THROUGH THE AIR. 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. 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 I had a very severe turn of it, worse, I think, than I evei 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 I l(t wpuld 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, sickiy. man, I shou'd haye thought less strangely out ; but as, on the contrary, I was I hearty and robust I feared some new and terrible thing had got hold of me, whidi might k make strength of no avail against it. I say hat was the way I thought. L 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 L you are getting worse 1" This so frightened [ my friends, as well as myself, that they said, " Thomas, you must go to thi Hospital ; it may ie 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 c large family depending on me for support, and * I might almost as well be mmy grave as to be a laid on my back m a hospital unable to lift a* hand tor months, or God only knows how long. j* Right at this point I had a thought flash across b my mind like a stream of sunshine m a cloudy day. I had heard and^read about Mothei ' Setgel's Curative Syrup, and I resolved, before 1 consenting to be taken to the hospital, I would c try that well-known remedy. On this I gave up the doctor's medicine and began taking the y Syrup. Mark the wonderful result I I had • c taken but three doses within twenty-four hours 8 when I was seized with a fit of coughing, and n threw up the phlegm and mucus off my chest )e by the mouthful. The Syrup had loosened ■ and broken it up. Continuing with the Syrup, y the raoking pain, which I believe came from I* the bitter and poisonous humours mmy blood :n and joints, soon left me entirely, and I felt like going to sleep, and I did sleep sound s > and quiet. Then I felt hungry, with a natural ie appetite, and aa I ate I soon got strong and er well. 5 J felt I could leap through the air with id delight tb In a week I was able to go to my work '.B again, it doesn't seem possible, yet it is true, '? and the people know it. And, therefore, 1 j hsn I say I preach the good news of the ir " great power of aeigel's Syrup to cure pain and :u disease far and wide, nobody will wonder at me ax Thomas Canning cc 75, Military.road, Canterbury, Kent. . c ?
