TAKEN IN TIME. OBSTINATE INDIGESTION BEATEN. [Port Melbourne ‘ Standard.’] Having heard so much and so often of the wonderful efficacy of the Dr William-j’s Pink Pills for Pale People, we ware glad to hear of a case in our own district in which benefit had been derived from the use of the pills. A representative was therefore told off to visit the residence of Mrs Austin, ICB City road, South Melbourne. It being Friday morning, this lady was in the midst of her work when our called, but she expressed her pleasure cf being able to give up a few moments to extol the virtues of Dr Williams’s Pink Pills for Pale People. She explained that she had not been very ill—that was, she bad not been compelled to call in a doctor, but she had been so unwell for several months that when she noticed the advertisement relating to the pills she determined to give them a trial. n i She complained of having suffered from t evsre indigestion and drowsiness,* which almost prevented her from doing her d-ily work. Altogether she had taktn four boxes of the pills, and when our representative saw her she hj d quite recovered from her trouble, aud her verdict was: ** The pills are grand for curing indigestion.” From feeling miso able and being unable to do her work, she said life was now a pleasure, and her appearance quite justified this assertion. • This is' a case which should attract the attention of housewives in general. Many such go about for months in a melancholy, semi-despon-dent condition. They are not ill enough to call in a doctor, and yet they feel as if they could scarcely do anything but lay down all day and let the housework go as it will. In time many husbands get weary of the continued complaints of the wire, and unhappiness creeps into the home. If such cases were promptly dealt with, and this valuable remedy, now used so extensively, were applied, we feel certain that much misery would be averted. Mrs Austin explained that we were quite at liberty to make use of her statements, in order that others might be benefited bv following her example in using the Dr Williams’s Pink Pills for Pale People. room* and remain there for hours at a time. At this stage we became extremely anxious concerning her health, and again sought medical advice, as we thought she was going into a decline. It was of no use, though ; nothing did her any good. She was then so thin and weak country for a change, but just as I was about to do so I saw in the Tarrangowcr ‘ Times ’ an advertisement about Dr Williams’s Pink Pills for Pals People, and noticing that people with symptoms similar to those of ray daughter bad been cured, I determined to give thoma trial. * 1 the Jubilee procession. exact representation of a leaf. she discontinued them.

'He acquisition of peifeot health is the aim of everyone. A few remarks, therefore, on the subject will be acceptable to all young ladies who are not the hsppy possessors of sparkling eyes and rosy cheeks. ■ Mrs Bowe, of North Maldon, A'ictoria, whose daughter, Mias May, had been seriously ill for some time, gives the following account ot her restoration to health and strength again : - “My daughter had breu strong and healthy until about two 3 cars ago, when she grew very pale and thin. She became weak and low tpirited, lost her appetite; her sleep was troubled and restless, and the least exertion fatigued ber—in fact, she had to take hersis’er's arm for support when out walking. She was of a wonderfully active and cheerful disposition before this change took place, and the alteration, therefore, earned us great concern, and medical aid was sought. But no good resulted. Several medicines were tried, but she became weaker and more listless every day. The doctor said she was suffering from amemia, or poorness of blood. Wo then became seriously alarmed, and consulted different medical men, who prescribed, and'told Miss May to take as much exercise ns possible. She, being fond of flowers, naturally turned her attention to the garden, but had to abandon the work, as the least exertion exhausted her. Of tin, when I thought she was out taking exercise in tho fresh air, I have found her in the drawing room with her head resting in her hands, and in a somnolent state. Then, when disturbed, she would steal quietly to her [From the Hobart ‘Gripper,’] Perseus advancing in years, and more especi- numerous and mysterious, ally females, are, especially in.a rigorous climate !

She also suffered from severe cramps in the legs. “ Friends then recommended patent medicines, and two or three kinds were tried, unsuccessfully. - “At last I decided to take her away to the “After using half a box a great improvement was noticeable, and after using three boxes she : regained her appetite, was able to sleep with comfort, and was so strong and well that we considered there was no necessity for her continuing to take Dr 'Williams’s Pink Pills, So grateful to Dr. Williams for my daughter’s recovery, and would like to have the cv.e made known, as it may induce others who suffer as my daughter did to try this remedy to their benefit,, and thus perhaps bring sunshine and happiness to their homes." like that of Tasmania, subjected to considerable infirmity. In some esses the patient has suffered from a complicity of disorders which have baffled the skill of tho medicos in attendance, ■ and have either eventually succumbed to the ■ triumph of Nature or else have settled into a will do after the “regulation service” has entirely failed. This lady some months ago commenced to feel unwell. Nothing very much at first—only a little out of sorts—and being a naturally active woman, and of some spirit, she paid no heed to it at all. However, after some weeks it was evident that she was far from being well, and one morning found herself unable to rise. Every attention was paid her, but without avail. She fell away in flesh, and was so weak in body and spirit as to become an old woman long before her time. She suffered from sharp shooting pains in the back and limbs, heavy throbbing aches in the head, dizziness, and sickness. At one time all the symptoms' of influenza .were apparent, and on being treated for this she developed other ailments of such a remarkable character that it was apparent she could not Jast-at the rate she was falling away. To walk was impossible, and her friends despaired of ever seeing her about again. • - Having, as she expres l ed it, “pretty well exhausted the pharmacopoeia,” she did not know what was to btc.-me of her, and, in fact, got into so low a condition, to use her own words, that she “ did not care.” “What I suffered,” she explained to our I reporter, no one but myself can tell, for lam a woman who never likes to give any trouble. i>ut I tell you that I was a wreck.

I am a favorite here with them all, and am never once out of spirits.” “ How did you find out about the pills?” I read some of the accounts' of their cures, nnd being sceptical by nature, I merely said Bosh, and thought no mure of it. When they were suggested to me I merely laughed at the idea, and then, being very weak and law, became irritated, thinking they were poking fun at me. I cannot tell you what was the matter, but I suffered from violent fits of trembling, great shooting pains in the back, bead, and limbs, intense burning thirst, and giddiness. Everyone said I would die.” 1 “ What induced you to take the pills at last ?” - .A youog latiy friend who vi ited me told mo ot the good, they had done her, and to oblige her i commended taking tlrm.
