Is Always Dangerous on This Account. A severe case cured by the Wonderful Power of* the Tonic Treatment. The most dangerous tendency of Rheumatism is to attack the heart. One ol the best known medical writers on tlie subject snys that no disease Is responsible for so uiiicli heart trouble as rheumatic fever. The longer one lias the coinplnlut the gieater Is the danger, therefore Rheumatism should he driven out of the system without delay. It can't be rubbed out. Rubbing may ease the puiii, It's.nonsense to expect rubbing to cure, the trouble Isn't ou the surface, it's in the blood. The Dr. Williams' rink Pills way Is to mate the blood strong -and healthy, therefore the whole sj-stem strong and healthy. That's common sense to cure Rheumatism. Mrs Mary Middlsralt-e. Durharn-rd., Inglewood, X.Z., cured her Rheumatism in this common sense way. She says:— "It's some while back since I was first attacked with Rheumntlsm. The pallia came on suddenly, and I wondered what was. wrong with mc. Gradually 1 got worse, the first thing In the morning my hands would feel <iulte stiff, and for a while I would not be able to do anything until ; they got warmed up. The backs of my , hands nud up my arms swelled a lot. The pains in my shoulders often stopped mc from milking, and I could not lift the bucket. Pretty well all day I had a dull aching in my shoulder —- it ■ was always worse after washing. I could always tell when it was going to rain — the paiiis were always sharper. Often I had to get the girls to brush my haiv — 1 could not lift my hand to my head. "My appetite fell off, and this made mc pretty weak. I became quite iun down. I used to go nbout the house in a listless sort of way, and did not care If I did anything ov not. Sometimes I thought that I would never get better. I would have given anything to be free of the terrible aching pains, even for a few days. I was very bad with the Rheumatism while we were living at South Canterbury, but it got worse after we came up North. As a Inst hope I started Dr. "Williams' Pink Pills. I roust have been taking them for nearly j three months before I felt any benefit, I and then they began to do their work. r could eat better and I could do my milking much easier. The awful aching pains did not catch mc bo badly In the anne and shoulders. As I kept on I could fee! myself getting better every day. The pains were getting leea, and lees, ana every d6se was putting new life into mc. For the past twelve I have not had a sign of Rhermntlsm." Insist (on getting Dr. Williams , Pink Pills. They are sold by most chemists and storekeepers, or if not locally obtainable, will be sent 'direct by the Dp. Williams' Medicine Co. of Australasia, Ltd., Wellington, for. 8/ per box, alx boxes 16/6.
