VICTORIAN HOME LIFE.
Mrs Margaret Ross is a fine sample of the claas that has done bo much to turn the wastes of inland Victoria into "smiling homesteads." Originally sho resided at Heathcofe, and there, some two decades since, witnessed the fluctuation of mining fortune that made the locality historical in Victorian mining anna's. £ome. years_later she removed to Alexandra, and in the vi inity of that pretty township—close to the Acheron—Mrs Rosa and family lived up to two years since, when, coming to Melbourne with her husband, they purchased the wellknown grocery store at the junction of Rathdown and PalmeTston streets, where a representative of the ' Carlton Gazette' found her ready and willing to discourse on the immense benefits she had received from a course of Dr Williams's Pink Pills for Pale People. Mrs Ro=s looked the picture of health, and courteously requested our representative to be seated; and there wa3 a smile of genuine welcome when our' mission was explained and the history of her particular malady and it** cure solicited; "Neuralgia," replied Mrs Boss, "was the complaint I suffered from for a period of ten or twelve years. Daring the daytime my sufferings were painful, but on retiring to rest the agony I suffered wa3 excruciating, reducing me to a state of general collapse. I felt it during the day slightly, but most severely after I got warm at night." " Did you consult any doctors at all ?" " Many ; but received no permanent benefit. They gave me draughts and powders, but the effect was really nothing." "You, of course, have tried other remedies?" "Yes, I tried everything, but obtained no relief."
"What induced you to try Dr Williams's Pink Pills for Pale People ?' "An eiderly lady, resident at Heathcote, seventy-four years of age, and who had been a sufferer from rheumatUm for forty years, and who has been absolutely cured by their use, recommended me to try Pink Pilh for Pale People." " How long since might that be ?'' " Six weeks since—the beginning of July. During the time I was taking the first box' I lost only one night's rest; but since then have never had the least return of the old complaint." "Have you used much of the medicine?"
' About four boxes. Previous to ray. taking them the pain in my head reduced me to sue i a state that I was on the verge of madness. The last three years I had been very bad, so you can imagine \he pleasure it was to mc to find a remedy .that has actually made a new woman of me." "That is so," remarked Mr Kos?, who was present. "Had you seen my. wife a few months since and now you would scarcely believe her to be the Fame woman/' "Yes, rejoined Mrs Boss, "my recovery lias been most pronounced aud satisfactory t > me. I have great faith in Dr Williams's Pills :for Pale People, and recommend them whereever possible." Congratulating Y.n Ro.-s on her recovery, and expressing a hypo that she wou'd long live to enjoy tho blessings of good health, our reporter withdrew.
