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 alone about 2,000,000,000 (two thousand million) pills are consumed every y&try In early days, pills were made slowly by hand, as the demand was comparatively small. Today 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 ingre dients employed No form of medication, can be bette* *van 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 fewpills that can be honestly commended 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 lees pains in the head, sides, and back, he may be sure his bowels are constipated, and his liver sluggish. To remedy this unhappy state of things there is nothing like a good cathartic pill. It will act like a oharm by stimulating the liver into doing its duty, and ridding the digestive organs of the accumulated poisonous matter. But the good pill does not gripe and pain 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 he disease itself. The grioing 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 any particular desire to praise one pill above another, we may, nevertheless, name Mother Seigel'a Pills, manufactured by the wellknown house of A. J. White, Limited, 35 Farringdon Koad, London, and now sold by all chemißts and medicine vendors, as the only one we know of that actually possess every desirable quality. They remove the pressure upon the brain, correct the liver, and cause the bowels to act with ease and egularity. They never gripe or duce 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 Seigel's Pills are covered with a tasteless and harmless coating, which causes them to resemble pearls, thus rendering them as pleasant to the palate as they are effective iii 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. A coated tongue with a brackish taste in the mouth is caused by foul matter in the stomach. A dose of Seigel's Pills will effect a speedy cure, Oftentimes partially decayed food in th« stomach and bowels produces sickness, nausea, etc. Cleanse the bowels with a dose of these pills, and good health will follow. Unlike many kinds of pills, they do not make you feel worse before you are better. They are, without doubt, the best f'mily physic ever discovered. They remove all obstruction to the natural functions in ither sex without any unpleasant effects. It should be explained that this mos remarkable cure Is due to the fact tha rheumatism is a disease of the blood Indigestion, constipation, and dyspepsid cause the poison from the partiaily digested food to enter the circulation, and the blood deposits it in the joints and muscles. This is rheumatism. Seigel's Sprup corrects the digestion, and so stops the further foormation aud deposit of the poison. It then remorea from the system the poison already there. It is not a cure-all. It does its wondorful work entirely by its mysterious action upon the digestive organs. But when we remember that nino-tents of our ailments arise out of those organs wo can understand why Seigels Syrup cures any diseases that appears to bf bo different fr their nature.
