NATURE SLOWLY MAKES READY. 7"OU have probably never scon a volcano in eruption. It is a magnificent spectacle. Where do all those torrents of red-hot lava come from ? Nobody can tell, except that they come from somewhere down deep in the earth. But one thing we know—namely, that eruptions of any one volcano aro far apart. Between whiles Nature is getting ready for them; she is preparing for ; the tremendous demonstration. H

dust so it is with all her processes. In the cold of winter she is arranging tn\e forces which aro to make the heat and the hai'veßts of the following summer, and so on. From May, 1890, to February, 1892, is a period of twenty-one months. 'lhe'«two,dates will long remain clear in the mind' °f Mrs Martha Bowles, of 182 Llangyfelach roaJt Morriston, near Swansea. For the first wa,'' the beginning and the second the ending of dV experience which was bad enough in itself, y ot o».vly the introduction to something vastly worse. \b was like the lime of getting ready for a great trouble to come. , i Her first sense of this was indefinite and ' vague, like the low muttering of thunder below the horizon while the skies aro yet clear. She I expresses it thus, in the"very words most of us use on similar occasions: '.'l felt that something was wrong with me—something hanging over me." Ah ! dear me. How often we think such feelings are a warning sent to the spirit, when iD 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 stroo? and healthy. Then came

about. They are common enough to be sure. Oh, yes. But isn't that all tho more a reason why we should understand what they mean.? '' Certainly," you will say. Well, then, there was that bad, offensive taste in the mouth that so many of us have had ; the failure of tho appetite, and the pain in the chest and sides after 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. the liver it is as though the big water wheel of a mill had got fixed so as not to turn round. For the liver does half a dozen kinds of work, and when it strikes work the re3t of the organs take a sort of rainy holiday.

Presently her skin and the white of her eyes turned yellow as autumn leaves. That mevnt bile in the blood; the liver was oif itß duty ; that isa sure sign. The kidney secretion way the color of blogd instead of a clear amber which meant that the trouble had already reached thosn important organs. Then the stomach wa« upset and refused to take kindly to food—as though the miller sent your grain back, declining to grind it. She vomited a sour, bitter fluid, which was acid bile, away out of ita proper track.. On and on along this line, con» stantly getting further and further from tlie' happy land of health'; this was the history of those twenty-one months-all bad enough, yet ail preparatory for worse ones. " One day in February, 1892, ; ' she says in her letter of August 18th, 1893, "I began to have dreadful pain and oramp. Itbegan in the right side, and extended aoross the stomach. For hours together I was in the greatest agony. "What I suffered is paßt description. When tha pain eased a little I was oold-aa death, and shivered until the bed phook under me. I had hot iron plates applied to my foet, and held hot irons in my hands, bat nothing gave me much relief. My stomach waa so irritable that I could lreep no food on it, I was now confined

to my bod, ana the doctor attending me anid I waa passing call, stones. He wanted mo to %o 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 also three from Swansea, who all gave me medicines, and said nothing more could be done for me. For six months I lay in bed undergoing the greatest agony : never free from pain more than two or three hours at a time. During the whole of this time I was fed on nothing but milk and water. I had scarcely any life or strength left in me.. All who saw me said I never could by any chanoe get better in this world. "I lingered on like this until August, 1892, when my daughter brought me a book telling of Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup. In this book she read of a case like mine having been cured by this medicine. My husband got a bottle from Mr Bevan, the chemist, and after taking a few doses I felt a little relief. I kept on with it, and soon the pains left me, my appetite returned,-: and my food agreed with me. After taking the Syrup for three months I was a new oreature,- and strong as ever. I can now eat anything, and nothing disagrees with me. After I waa well our minister one day said: 'Mrs Bowles, I never thought to see you alive.' I said: 'Mother Seigel's Syrup saved my life.' You may publish my'case, and I will gladlv answer inquiries. (Signed) Martha Bowles"." This case—one of acute indigestion and dyspepsia, with liver and kidney complaints—is well known in the distriot. The lady's husband i 3 a gardener, well known and respected. Do we need to point ont the moral of this wonderful cure ? No. You can see it for yourself.
