SAVED IN SYDNEY.
Marrickville has not a happier, brighter resident tlnn Mrs Edwards, wife of the Marrickville Town Hall caretaker. Hearing that Mrs Edwards for years had been a just sufferer from indigestion and dyspepsia, our reporter called on her to get the facts of the case, particularly as he also heird that she had suddenly been cured. Mrs Edwards very courteously received the representative, and gave him an account of her ailments and their cure.
Fust of all,” she proceeded, “I suffered from sleeplessness, ringing noises in my head, and an overbearing pain at ray chest. Furthermore, my appetite failed, and all that would rest on my stomach was soft food such as milk and arrowroot. But what alarmed me most was the way my heart would go pit-a-pat on the very slightest exertion. I can assure you if I walked a quarter of a mile these distressing symptoms would come on This frightened me very much, for I feared I was suffering from heart disease. As to the remedies I swallowed why their name is legion, but unfortunately no good effects resulted, and I feared my troubles were neither to be cured nor alleviated. I consequently began to feel very low and depressed.
One day I read of some cures effected by Dr Williams’s Pink Pills for Pate People, and indeed, it proved a joyous day for me, I determined to try a few boxes of this specific, bought them, and commenced to take them according to the directions which I noticed were around each box. After the first two boxes I felt a decided improvement, and decided to continue with this medicine. As I persevered with the treatment I made satisfactory progress.”
“You said that your heart gave you considerable anxiety, Mrs Edwards ? ” “ Yes. I was afraid it was diseased, and I’m glad to find I was mistaken. It took a little time to pull me together again, for you must remember I had sunk very low; but I am happy to state that I am fairly on my feet again, and am so satisfied that this cure has been effected by Dr Williams’s Pink Pills for Pale People that I have recommended them to all my friends. Yes, you are at perfect liberty to publish this testimonial, for I consoler it a duty that I owe to the world at large.
(Signed) JANE EDWARDS. Anyone with a particle of sympathy in his composition will readily concede that life under the circumstances narrated in Mrs Edwards’s case is a failure, and death holds little terror for one so situated. Imagine oven such an existenc?, and the thought brings terror with it. It is like bearing a heavy load with little strength to manage it, consequent upon the denial of food and sleep. No wonder the heart rebels and seems determined upon bursting bounds. Dr Williams’s Pink Pills also cure such diseases as rheumatism, neuralgia, partial paralysis, locomotor ataxia, St. Vitus’s dance nervous headache, nervous prostration, the after effects of la grippe, influenza, and severe colds, diseases depending on humors in the blood, such as scrofula, chronic erysipelas, etc. In the case of men they effect a radical cure in all cases arising from mental worry, overwork, or excesses of any nature.
