PTOLIO NOTICES YANKEE. . ; striictlon as -Well as humor. Possibly you Save read that wonderful story of his called ' A Yankee at Kih£ Arthur's Court.' The hero is a in America. He jb accidentally killed, as we would say; but, instead of getting hi 9 body deposited in the grave, as happens to the most of us, he comes to life again, and finds himself at the Court of King Arthur in England in the sixth century, 1,300-years before he was bora. That was a time of deep, ignorance and superstition;; people Vera but children then.' So with his knowledge and his nineteenth century training he soon beoame master' of everybody and everything. He controls the Government and runs the whole country—exactly as a college professor would be superior to all the children if ha should take it into his head to join a class at a parish school. Now, let us see what this idea may mean to you or to me. In the autumn of 1873 Mr James Murphy, of 49 Townsend street, Dublin (present address 5 Synnott row, Synnott place. Lower Dorset street) had a severe attack of rheumatic fever, and was under treatment at the Sir Patrick Dunn's Hospital for three months. ; Then he left the hospital, but not the man ho was before the disease fell upon him. Aft< rwards he was never free from it. For a while he would be comparatively well, then down on hia baok again. It would depend on the weather and other circumstances, you see. Of his worst times he speaks in this way: " My ankles and feet were hot and painful, and would often swell to three or four times their natural size. Occasionally the pain extended to the hips, and I had to be swathed in wadding from the thighs down to the ankles. In this way -now able to gejj about and now confined to my bed—l suffered for.over seventeen years. The joints of my fingers and tees became displaced, or seemed to be so." We don't need to point out what a criDple this sort of thing makes of a man. If he were wounded and torn in battle or by machinery ho couldn't bo worse off. Yet the number of people thus disabled is immense; and, while rheumatism is peculiarly the disease of adults and old persons, the young (even children) do not escape it. If the dis-ase-were only UEderstood but let us.not get ahead of our story. " At Christmas, 1890," continues Mr Murphy, " I had a dreadful attack, and was confined to bed for seventeen week s." This took him clear through the rest of the winter and .one month ot spring up to the first of May. What a dreary, miserable season it must have been-! There is no merry Christmas or jolly coming of the buds on the trees for a man in that situation. Still, it might have been prevented if he had known then what he found out later. "All this time," he goes on, "I was in the greatest ae;ony. I couldn't move myself in bed, and finally got so bad I couldn't lift my hand to my mouth, and had to be fed like a baby. Night after nisdit I .got no sleep, and often wished myself dead. As for work, I thought I should never do a stroke again. The doctor who attended me gave me medicines, but I seemed none-the better for them. I had long since lost all faith in rubbing oils and embrocations ; I had spent pounds for them without benefit. " One day, whilst still suffering great pain, I came upon a book telling how cases like mine had been cured by Mother Siegel's Curative Syrup. Not knowing what else to do, I bought a bottle of Mr Mannin, the chemist ia Brunswick street. After taking this medicine a day or two.l had less pain, and I was able to leave my bed; and fourteen days later I had not an ache or a pain of any kind, and got back to my work. Since that time—now two and a-half years ago -1 have bad no return of my 6ld complaint. I never felt better in my life than I do now, and I thank God that I ever heard of Mother Seigel's Syrup. Yon are at liberty to publish my statement. I have been in the employment of Mr Robinson, coal merchant, for tho past ten. yeari—Yours truly ( s igned), James Mdrpht, Dublin, Juno 23rd, 1893." The mysterious American at King Arthur's Court was powerful because of his knowing what nobody else knew. Had Mr Murphy known years before that rheumatism is caused by impurity of the blood, and that Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup cures it, he could have defied and banished that agonising ailment. We print these facts in order that his present knowledge may, also be everybody's knowledge.
A VICTIM OF FUNCTIONAL DISEASE. ALAXUM never fails anyone in such a predicament. To sufferers from Sick Headache, Dyspepsia, Biliousness, aud Constipation it is "a friend in need and a friend indeed." Assist nature by ALAXUM, and you will avoid a multitude of distressing functional derangements and disease*. Of all known medicines for renewing the energy is the best. Its secondary effects are marvellous. Many persons afflicted with Constipation have- testified not only to its immediate relieving properties but to the"fact that the cobe lasts. - No care is required while using it. It does* not interfere with the diet, habits, or occupation, and produces no inconvenience in its action. It is at once a laxative, an appetiser, and a stimulating tonic, prepared scientifically, and endorsed by the Press as the most valuable medicine that has ever been offered to the public in a popular form. ALAXUM CORES BILIOUSNESS BILIOUS HEADACHE DIZZINESS COSTIVENESS SOUR STOMACH LOSS OP APPETITE COATED TONGUE INDIGESTION DYSPEPSIA FLATULENCE HEARTBURN PAINS AND DISTRESS AFTER EATING, And all Functional, Derangements of the •System of Nutrition. NOTE THIS WELL.-The whole system of a human being may be perfectly sound, and yet through derangement or weakness the organs of the body may perform their functions or their work sluggishly, thus giving rise to want of appetite, and a consequent general impoverishment of the whole Being. Such a condition causes thousands of people to fancy that they are consumptive, while they are really only in need of a remedy to set the organs of the body working harmoniously. Reason points to two essential qualities in a remedy for this purpose. It .must create an appetite for food, and at the same time assimilate its nutriment. "With either of these qualities alone the remedy would be worse than useless, , but with both it becomes a power for incalculable good. ALAXUM is the.only medioine which combines these two qualities. It is a natural appetiser, and its first action Is to create hunger. After the appetite is satisfied it acts directly on the stomaoh, liver, and kidneys, clearing away all eflete-matter and exciting them to activity. The_ system'then receives nutrition and new life from the proper assimilation of the food; and where there is no organic disease health must follow.- This is common sense and cannot be gainsaid. Accept no substitute that may be recom- , mended to be " just as good." It may be better—for the dealer—because of its better profit, but in sUch'an instance the dealer is ' not the one who needs help. FROM ALL CHEMISTS AND STOREv KEEPERS.^sea. H. S. FISH AND«ON.
