HOW PILLS ARE MAD E -* _ 1 The Custom of taking medicine m the form ' of pills dates far back m history. The object ( is to enable us to swallow easily m a condensed form disagreeable and nauseous, but very use- ' ful, 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 y«**r 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 espepi? ally contrived for the purpose, and with greater accuracy, too, m the proportions of the various ingredients employed. No form ot medication can be better than a pill, provided only it is intelligently prepared. But right here occurs the difficulty. Easy as it . may seem to make a 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 pills of some kindj 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 suie j his bowels are constipated, and his liver sluegish. 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 digescive organs of the accumulated poisonous matter. But the good pill does not gripe and palfl us, neither does it make us sick and miserable for a few hours or a whole day. It acts on the entire glandular system at the same time, else the after effects of the pill will be worse than the disease itself. The griping caused by most pills is the result of irritating drugs which the? contain. Such pills are harmful, and should never be used. They sometimes even produce hemorrhoids, Without having any particu'ar desire to praise one pill above another, we may, nevertheless, name Mother Seigel's Pills, manufactured by the well known house of A. J. White, Limited, 35 Farringdon Road* London, and now sold by all chemists and medicine vendors, as the only one we know pf that actually pos eses every- desirable quality. They rpmqye the pressure upon the brafn, correct the liver, and cause the bowels to act with ease and regularity. They never gripe or produce the slightest sickness of the stomach, or any other unpleasant feeling or symptom. Neither do they induce further constipation, as nearly all other pills do. As a further and crowning merit, Mother Sei-el'q Pills are covered with a tameless and harmless coating, which causes them to resemble pearls, thus rendering them as pleasant to the palat as they are effective m curing disease. If ycu have a severe cold and are threatened with a fever, withpaius m the head, back, and limbs, one or two doses will bre »k up the cold and prevent the fever. A coated tongue, with a brackish taste m the mouth is caused by fb 1 matter m the stomach, A dose of Seigel's 1 Pilis will effect a' speedy cure. Oftentimes partially decayed food m the stomach and bowels produces sickness, nausea, etc. Cleanse the bowels with a dose of these pills, and goocl health will follow. Unlike many kinds pf pills, they do not make you ftel worse before you are better. They are, without doubt, the he** *— " phys'c ever dlspov*-- -» * — «<tmily oK-a- • ..wicu.
