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 iabbnt 2,000,000,000 (two thousand million) pills are consumed every yavr. In early <fays, 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 ; dient* employed >', „

No form of medication can be better •tfian „,' * pill, provided only it is intelligently }>i«pared.. But right here occurs the difficulty. : ICasy aa'it.may seem to make a pill, or a i, , million of them there are really very few " pills that can be honestly commended for ; , popular use.. Most of them either under'l •fioofc' or Overshoot the mark. Am everybody • • takes pill* of some kind, it may be w«U to ; mention what a good, safe, and reliable pill should be. Now, when one feels dull and . sleepy;* and has more or less pains in the . head, sides, and back, he may be sure hia ,«,■ bowels are constipated, and his liver sluggish. , ; To, remedy t;hi« 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 ■' v digestiveorgans of the accumulated poisonous Blatter. Bat the good pill does not gripe and p&in us, neither does it make us sick and miserable for a few hours or a whole day. It acts on the

. ,■ j entire glandular system at the same time, else ;.. .the; after effects of the pill will be worse than ha disease itself. The griping caused by most pilla 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 *ny particular desire to praise one pill above another, we may, nevertheless, name Mother - f 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 of that actually possess every de*irable quality. They remove the pressure upon the brain, correct the liver, and cause the bowels to act with case and

egularity, Qhey never gripe or produce the slightest sickness of the stomach, .•r 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 •i -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 '' in curing diseases. If you have a severe cold and are threatened with a fever, with ; pain's 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 month is caused by foul matter in "the" stomach. A dose of Seigel'a Pills •will effect a speedy cure. Oftentimes partially -decayed food in the 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 family physic ever discovered. They remove all 'obstruction to the natural functions in ither box without any unpleasant effects. It ehould. 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 removes from the system the poison already there, ft-if not a cure-all. It does its wonderful w«rk entirely by its mysterious action upon tk« digestive organs. But when we remember that niria-tentß.of our ailments arise out of those organßwecan understand why Seigels Syrup cures any diseases that appears to \)9 so different in their nature.
