RECOVERED FROM CONSUMPTION.
HOW ONE OF ENGLAND’S DEFENDERS WAS SAVED FROM THE GRAVE,
ATTESTED BEFORE A .JUSTICE OF THE PEACE.
The cause of tenqoerance has ho strohger advocate than Mr Oha rles Terry, a hero-of the Crimean War. Towards the end of 1896 Mr Terry,_ then 66 years of age, was taken very ill, and his friends knew tl/at that awful disease consumption had him in its fearful grasp, and prompt and effective remedial measures were an absolute necessity. An e.Tective remedy was discovered in Dr Williams’s Pink Pills for Pale People, and Mr Terry enjoys perfect health. He is yot to be found urging forward the cause of temperance. To a report v of the ‘Australian Military Gazette’ Mr Terry gave the following account of his illness and marvellous cure:—
“ I arrived in Australia in the 'latter end of 1877 in H.M.S. Sapphire, the t\pu. Captain Merry. I then joined the Diatr. ond, trader Captain Dale, on this station, and on leaving the ship quitted the service for pood, bavin gin all served in seventeen ships in Her Majesvy’s Royal Navy. In August of this year - (1896,11 found myself at Emu Plains, being in tl’.e employ of Messrs M - Grath. fellmongei v. It was whilst there that I was taken ill, towards the latter end of August. I attribute i my illness to exposure. My first symptoms were coughing, a spitting of blood, and a bloody 1 discharge from the kidneys of the consistenc v of jelly. One man there was particularly kim 1 to me, and constantly stayed up with me all nig ht, : giving me eucalyptus to inhale, and c. mtinuously rubbing it into my chest, throat, a. ad stomach, ’< he man said that he didn’t thit dc I’d last long if I stayed at Emu Plain.- b and advised me to go into a hospital . Feeling that he was likely to prove a true - , prophet, I followed his advice, came to Sydney, and took up my abode at 485 Kent street, where I still am living. On my arrival in I suffered from great pains in the back and sides, and also under the ribs. I could take no solid food, and entirely subsisted on eggs and new milk. I went to consult a doctor whose rooms I could have reached under ordinary circumstances in ten minutes, but was so horribly weak that it took me an hour and ten minutes to get there. He told me to strip, which I did, and ho then sounded me and asked me how long I had been bad. I told him that from the first it was about eight weeks, upon which he said : ‘ It’s chron’c.’ _He suggested that I should go to a hospital at once, but I declined and returned home. I had medicine prescribed for me of various kinds, which proved quite ineffectual, and afforded me no relief whatever. I took no lei’s than seven bottles of eucalyptus, and even chiorodync was prescribed for me. I fell away lamentably, perspired profusely, and could not obtain any sleep. I was in such pain that I could . not shift in bed. My right side was much the worse, and my breathing was most labored and painful. I cannot be too grateful to my friend Brother J. C. Jones. He would stay with me for three or four hours at a time. One day a friend of mine read to mo the account of Boilermaker Jarvis’s wonderful recovery by taking Dr ■Williams’s Pink Pills, and I at once procured a box. I had taken all but two when the blood-spitting and emission ceased. After two boxes I was able to get up and walk about, and now r at the end of six boxes, the cure was almost complete. The cure was MAGICAL, and I tell all my friends and the general public th.at nothing but Dr Williams’s Pink Pills brought me once more before them to aaitate the tempe. ’ance question, and on each occasion I have mi’t with a great reception. (Mr Terry here called' our reporter’s attention to the amount of useless physic he had consumed, and, indeed, the amm mt of bottles reminded one of the interior of a’chemist’s shop.) lean speak in the highest possible terms of the marvellous curative prope ’ties of the Pink Pills. On my visits to, and lect urea in, the country I shall consider it ray duty to suffering humanity to recount my astounding cu. ?e. and I trust that I may be the means of saving the life of many a despairing mortal. Ciias. Tebkv. 1 ’ (Signed on oath and in the pi ’eseuoeof Charles Lovely, J.P.) Dr Williams’s Pink Pills ert 'ate new blood, build up the nerves, and thus drive disease from the system.
