WHY HE DID NOT GO TO THE HOSPITAL
HE COULD LEAP THROUGH THB
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 at 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 sub ject to attacks of bron* chitis, a complaint that you arc aware is very common and troublesome m Great Britain m certain seasons of the year. SomeAnonths 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 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, sickiy. man, I shou'd have thought less strangely of it j but as, on the contrary, I was hearty and robust 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. 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 h_ frankly said, "lam sorry to have to tell yo_ you are getting worse I" This so frightenei my friends, as well as myself, that they sai4 " Thomas, you must go to the Ifyspital : it maj be your only chance for life 1" But I didn't want to goto the hospital.

t 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 Syrup. Mark the wonderful result 1 I had taken but three doses within twenty-four hours j 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, wiMi a natural appetite, and as I ate I soon got strong and well. I 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, hsn I say I preach the good news of the great power of seigel's Syrup to cure pain and disease far and wide, nobody will wonder at me i 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, Farringdon iroad, London, E. C. England.
