In this inclement weather, when so many arer suffering from colds, coughs, and rheumatism, the story of -Mrs Mary Brown, of 71 Simmons street, Knmore, will be read with devouring interest. When our reporter called at this lady's residence he lound her busily engaged at the washtub, what the called doing a " day's washing." It was, indeed, difficult to believe by the amount of " elbow grease " she laid into her labors that this interesting personage had lately been informed by medical men that hers was a case which wou'd probably develop into chronic rheumatism. "I have called, Mrs Brown." taid our reporter, " to ascertain tho truth of the rumor that has reached us of >our having recently suffered from a severe attack of rheumatism." "it is quite true, bat I am now happy to relate that 1 foßl as well as I ever did. I have been suffering on and off from rheumatism for the last five years, and the slightest change in tho weather used to give me most awful twinges. It ohiefly affeoted my arms. If it had not been for some of my friends I oould never have got through my "household duties. This complaint appeared to affect my entire system, and as to the money I had spent in doctors' advioo and so-called remedies, why, it makes me positively disgusted to think of. I began to think that if my sufferings continued life was not worth living. I remember one day, when reading the ' Evening News,' that an advertisement caught my eye headed 'Dr Williams's Pink Pills for Pale People cure Rheumatism, Sciatica, etc' Now, having wasted so much money already, I was at first loth to try any more advertised medicines, but I thought 'in for a penny in for a pound,' so I invested in three boxes of this specific "My husband laughed at me when I told him I was in for a course of Dr Williams's Pink Pills, and said : 'Oh ! you are- Roiug to throw away Borne more m>noy, are you?' "I said: 'Yes,'l am,' an 4 right g'arl sinl that I did so, for I am happy to tell you that they have done me all the good in the world. Why I feel now a brand-new woman, and my husband says I look the 'pink' of perfection now. Not only have I lost my rheumatic pains, but my appetite has returned, and I can now enjoy my food. In fact, my appetite is so good that Brown says I will eat him out of house and home. This change is all due to Dr Williams's Pink Pills." " How many boxes have you taken, Mrs Brown ?" " I have had seven boxes in all, and I have so much belief in them that I intend always to keep a box by me, and I shall rocommond them to all my friends. You are quite at liberty to publish this statement, as I beli-ve in giving credit to whom credit is due."
