HOW PILLS ARE MADE.
The Custom of taking medicine in the form of pills dates far back in history. The object is to enable us to swallow easily in 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 in England alon about 2,000,000,000 (two thousand million) ', pills are consumed every year. In early days,'pills were made slowly by hand, as '\ the demand was comparatively smalL To- j day they are produced in infinitely greater rapidity by machines especially, contrived'*^ for the purpose, and with greater accuracy, :\ too, in the proportions of the various ingr.6-, ) \ dients employed. . - , .; ,;i No form of medication can bY better tha&^ "** a pill, provided only it is intelligently prepared. But right here occurs the difficulty. ! Easy as it may seem to make a pill, ot,&; rr, million of them there are really very, ifiw \' pills that can be honestly commended i for popular use. Most of them either under* ;■ shoot or overshoot the mark. - As everybody r t takes pills of some kind, it may be; well "to'L '■§ mention what a good, safe, and reliable pill ,rf * should be. Now, when one. feels dull^and \^ sleepy, and has more or less pains in the head, sides, and back, he may be aure hisVT bowels are constipated, and his liver sluggishVj^ To remedy this unhappy, state of things jL.'' there is nothing like a good cathartic, pill. ' . It will act like a charm by stimulatui^ the, '„", liver into doing its duty, and ridding the * digestiveorgans of the accumulated poisonous ""' matter.. . ' -„.„ <-. .\"^f ","j(t But the good pill does not gripe jaiid p4Bnj|| | 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, eke,the after effects of the pill will be yorsethkhr the disease itself.' The griping caused by ,'' most pills is the result of irritating drugs, which they contain, Such pills are harmful, "and should never be used:' They sometimes, even produce hemorrhoids. * Without having i any particular desire to praise one pill above another, we may, nevertheless, nameiMotherxitc Seigel's Pills, manufactured by the wellknown house of A. J. White, Limited, 35.. •. Farringdon Road, London, and now sold by air chemists and medicine vendors,.as the only one we know of that actually possess every desirable quality.

They never gripe or iproiVXJ duce the slightest sickness of the stomach, v ov any other unpleasant ~. feeling,yor J' | symptom. Neither do they induce further ;": = constipation, aa nearly all other' pills; do. 4 \': >" Asa further and crowning merit, MotherJ I Seigel's Pills are covered with a tasteless t}O and harmless coating, which causes them to resemble pearls, thus rendering them aa pleasant to the palate as they are effective in curing diseases..' If you have a severe cold and are threatened with a fever, with pains in the head, back and limbs, one or ;. two doses will break up the cold and prevent .^ the fever.
