WHY HE Dli) NOT GO TO THE HOSPITAL. HE COULD LEAP THROUGH THE AIB. ' Y object in writing is twofold: to express i- my gratitude for a great benefit, and to tell a short story which cannot fail to interest the feelings of many others. It is all about myself ; but 1 lixve remarked that -when a man tells the honest troth about himself he is all the more likely to be of use to his fellowcreatures. To begin, then, you must know I had long been more or less subject to attacks of bronchitis, a complaint that you are aware is very common and troublesome in Great Britain in certain seasons of the year. Some months ago I had a very severe turn of it, worse, I think, than I ever had before. It was probably brought on by my catching cold, as we are all apt to do when we least expect it. Weeks passed by, and my trouble proved to be very obstinate. It would not yield to medicine, and as I also began to have violent racking pains in my limbs and back, I became greatly alarmed. I could neither eat nor sleep. If I had been a feeble, sickly man, I should have thought less strangely of it; but .as, on the contrary, I was hearty and robust, I feared some new and terrible thing had got hold of me, which might make my strength of no avail against it. I say, that was the way I thought. Presently I oould not even lie down for the pain all over my body. I asked my doctor what he thought of my condition, and he frankly said: "I am sorry to have to tell you that you are getting worse 1" This so frightened my friends, as well as myself, that they said : " Thomas, you must go to the hospital; it may he your only chance for life! " But I didn't want to gi to the hospital. Who does, when he thinks he can possibly get along without doing it ? lam a laboring man with a large family depending on me for support, and I might almost as well be in my grave as to be laid on my back in a hospital unable to lift a hand for months, or God only knows how long. Bight at this point I had a thought flash across my mind like a streak of sunshine in a cloudy day. I had heard a good deal about Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup, and I resolved, before consenting to be taken to the hospital, I would try that wellknown remedy. On this I gave up the doctor's medicine and began taking the Syrup. Mark the wonderful result! I had taken but three doses within twenty-four hours when I was seized with a fit of coughing, and threw up the phlegm and mucus off my thest by ths mouthful. The Syrup had loosened and broken it up. Continuing with the Syrup, tho racking pain, which I believe came from the bitter and poison humors in my blood and joints, soon left me entirely, and I felt like going to sleep, and I did sleep sound and quiet. Then I felt hungry, with a natural appetite, and as I ate I soon got strong and well, I felt I could leap through the air with de light. In a week I was able to go to my work again It doesn't seem possible, yet it is true, and the neighbors know it. There are plenty of witnesses to prove it. And, therefore, when I say I preach the good news of the great power of Seigel's Syrup to cure pain and disease far and wide, nobody will wonder at me.
