WHY HE DID NOT GO TO THE HOSPITAL. HE COULD LEAP THROUGH THE AIR. MY object in writing is twofold: to express my gratitude for a great benefit, and to tell a short story which cannot foil to interest the feelings of many others. It is all about myself; but I have remarked that when a man tells the honest truth about himself he is all the more likely to be of nse 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 o! it, worse, I think, than I ever bad 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 could not even lie down for the pain all over my body. I asked my doctor what he thought of my condition, and he frankly srid: “I am sorry to have to toll yon that you are getting worse! ” 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 go 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 iu my grave as to be laid on my back in a hospitV unable to lift a hand for months, o{ on jy knows how long. Right at point ~ r bad a thought flash across pay * tolnd Jike a atreak of sunshine in k cloudy day. I had heard a g<)od J ea j abou (; Mother Seigel’s Curative Syi-up, and I resolved, before consenting to he 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 muons off my chest by the mouthful, The Syrup had loosened and broken it up. Continuing with the Syrup, the 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 Uap through tht air with dt 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, Thero 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, Thomas Canning 75 Military road, Canterbury, Kent.

EXPERIENCE OF A PROMINENT CITIZEN. The California Society for the Suppression of Vice, San Francisco, July 7th, 1885, I took a severe cold upon my chest and lungs, and did not give it proper attention; it developed into bronchitis, and in the fall of the sune year I was threatened with consumption. Physicians ordered me to a more congenial climate, and I came to San Francisco.
