public notices; v j NATURE SLOWLY MAKES READ?. 'h\ YOU have probably never seen a volcano in rm. eru P tion ' Ji &'» magnificent spectacle. Where do all those torrents of red-hot lava come from? Nob.ody.can tell, except that they come from somewhereldown deep in the earth. But one thing we. know—namely,, that eruptions of any one a*e far apart. Between whiles Nature is getting ready for them; ehe is preparing for tie tremendous demonstration. . - Just bo it is with;Ap herprooesses. "In the cold of winter she is arranging the forces which are to make the heat and the haivests of the following summer, and bo on. From May; 1890, to February,. 1892, is a peuod of twenty-one months. Ihe two dates will long remain clear in the Mrs Martha Bowles, of 182 Llarigyf/lach road, Morriston,_ near Swansea. For the Erst was the beginning and the second the ending of an experience which was bad enough in itself, yet only tho introduction to something vastly worse. It was like tbe-time of getting -ready for a great trouble to come. Her first sense of "this-was indefinite and vague, like the low muttering of thunder below i the horizon while the skies are'yet clear. Sho j expresses it thus, in the very words most of us use on similar occasions: "I felt that something was wrong with me-scmothing hanein" over me." ... -° Ah! dear me. How often we think Buch fechngs are a warning sent to the spirit, when in fact they aro caused entirely by the condition of our bodies. She felt heavy, languid and tired,..and mentally, depressed. This was not only melancholy..to~her > but new, as she had' always been strocp and healthy. Then came the discomforts which therecould be no mistake about. They are common enough to be Bure Oh, yes. Bat isn't that all the more a reason why we should understand what they mean' "Certainly," you will.say. Well, then, there wa3 that bad, offensive taste- in the mouth, that so" mauy of us have had ; the failure of the appetite, and the pain in the chest and aides af i< r eating. The worst pain was in the right side, where it was very heavy. That pointed" to the liver, which is located on that side; and when anything ails tho liver it is as though the big water wheel oE a mill had got fixed ao as. not to turn round. For the liver.does half a dozen kinds of woik, and when it strikes work the rest of the organs tako a sort of rainy holiday. Presently her skin and the white of her eyes turned yellow as autumn leaves. That meant bile m the Wood; the liver was off its duty; that is a sure'sign. The kidney secretion was the color of blood instead of a clear amber which meant that the trouble had already reached thoso important organs. Then the stomach was upset and refused to take kindly to food—as though Ihe miller sent your grain back, declining to grind it. She vomited a sour, bitter fluid, which was aoid bi!e, away out of its proper track. On and on along this line, constantly getting further and further from the happy land of this was the history of thofcc twenty-one months-all bad enough, yet all preparatory for worse ones.
" One day in February; 1892," she saya in her letter of August 18th, 1893, "I began to have -dreadful pain and cramp. Itbegan in the right side, anl extended across the* stomach. For hours together I was in the greatest agony. What I Buffered i 3 past description. When the pain eased a little I was cold.as death, and shivered until the bed shook under me. I had hot iron plates applied to my feet, and held hot irons in my hands, but nothing save me much relief. My stomach was so irritable that I could Veep no food_on it. I was now confined to my bed, and the doctor attending ma I was pacing pall stones. He wanted mo to go to Swansea Hospital and be operated upon, but I was afraid I might not live through it. " I next had two other doctors at Morriston and alao three from Swans?a, who all gave me medicines, and said nothing more could be done for me. For six months I lay in be! undergoing the greatest agony : never free from pain more than two or three Lours at a timei Curing tbe whole of thi3 time I was fed on .nothing but milk and water. I had scarcely any life or strength liff in me. All who saw mo soil I never could by any chanoe get better in this world. ' 1 lingered on like this until Au?uat, 1892. when my daughter brought me a book telling of Mother Scigel'a Curative ?yrup. In this book nhe road cf a case liko mine having been ou-ed by thh medicine. My husband got a bottle from: Mr Bevarr,- tho chemist, and after taking, a few doses I felt a little relief. I k»pt on-' with it, and soon the pains left me, my "appetie returned, and my food agreed with me. .After takin? the Syrup for threo months I wa« a new creature, anl strong as ever. I can how eat anything, and nothing disagrees with me. After I wai well our minister one day eai<l: ' Mrs Bowles, I never thought to see yon alive.' I said: ' Mother Syrup saved my life.' You may publish ny case, an 4 I will gladly answtr inquiries-. (Signed) Mabhia Bowies." . This cise—on.; of acute indigestion and dyspepsia, with liver and kidnev complaints-is well known in the district. IHe ladj r s husband is a gardener, well kcown andrespected. Do we need to point out the moral of this wonderful cure ? Ko. You can see it for yourse'.f.
