The Baby Ogden Company open at tie Oddfellows Hall to-night. Messrs Leggett Bros., who have the work in hand of preparing the tower on the Borough Council Buildings for reception of the Jubilee clock, are making good progress. They have been somewhat retarded by the recent bad weather, but calculate that, with no more interruption, they will be able it have the tower ready for the clock in a fortnight. The bell is now hung, and to-day at j noon Mr Spicer had a chiming contest with the Catholic Church bell. The sound of the new bell is not unlike that of the Fire Brigade alarm, but the difference is sufficiently marked to enable the two bounds to be easily distinguishable. Mr Murray is making rapid progress with the clock, but will be in no hurry to set it up, preferring to allow the work on the tower to consolidate before fixing the clock in its place.
STARTLING EVENT IN A VILLAGE To the Editor of "Saturday Night,', Birmingham. I recently came into possession of certain facts of so remarkable a nature, that I am sure you will be giad to assist in making them public. The follows ing letters were shown to me, and I at once begged permission to copy them for the Press. They come from a highly responsible source, and may be received without question. MESSAGE from George James Gost li?tg, L.D.S., R.C.S.I. .Ph. C.1., Licentiate in Pharmacy and Dental Surgeon. Stowmarket, July 18, 1889. To Mr White, The enclosad remarkable cure should, I think, be printed and circulated in Suffolk, The statement was entirely voluntary, and s genuine in fact and detail,—G.J.G. "To the Proprietors of Mother Seigel's Syrup." " Gentlemen. —The following remarkable cure was related to me by the husband, Mary Ann Spink, of Finborough, Suffolk, was for over twenty years afflicted with rheumatism and neuralgia, and although comparatively a young woman at the time she was attacked (she is now fifty), she was compelled, in consequence, to walk with two sticks, and even then with difficulty and pain. About a year and a half ago she was advised to try Mother Seigel's Syrup, and after taking three bottles and two boxes of Seigel's Operasing Pills, the use of her limb was restored, and she is now able to walk three miles to Stowmarket with ease in three quarters of an hour. Any sufferer who deubts this story can fully ascertain its truthfulness by paying a visit to the village and enquiring of the villagers, who will rcetify to the facts." ' " Appended ie the husband's signatu to the statement. « (R. Spink}, G. S. Sostling, Ipswich Street, Stowmarket. This is certainly a very pitiable case, and the happy cure wrought by this simple but powerful remedy, must move the sympathy of all hearts in a common pleasure. This poor woman had been a cripple for twenty of her best years; years in which she should ! have had such comfort md enjoyment as jlie has to give. But, on the contrary shin was a miserable burden te herself and a source of care to her friends. Now, at an age when the rest of us are growing feeble, she, in a manner, renews Tier youth and almost begins a new existence. What a blessing and what a wonder it is ! No one who knows her, or who reads her story, but will be thankful that the good Lord has enabled men to discover a remedy capable of bringing about a cure that reminds us if we speak it reverently—of the age of miracles.
HOW PILLS ARE MADE The Custom of taking medicine in the form of pills dates far back iri history. The object is to enable us to swallow easily in a condensed form disagreeable and nauseous, i 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 yetr. In early days, pills were made slowly by hand, as the demand was comparatively email. 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 bctte* <han 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 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 less pains in the head, sides, and back, he may be sure his bowels are constipated, and his liver sluggish. To remedy tin's 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 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 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 any particular desire to praise one pill above another, we may, nevertheless, name Mother Seigel's Pills, manufactured by the wellknown 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 desirable quality. They remove the pressure, upon the brain, correct the liver,
