PUBLIC NOTICES. NATURE SLOWLY MAKES READY. rOU have prububly never seen a volcano in eu 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 wo know—namely, that eruptions of any one volcano are far apart Between whiles Nature U getting ready for them; the. is preparing for tte tremendous demonstration. •Just eo it -is with all her processor. In the cold of winter she is arranging the forces which arc to make the heat and the harvests of the following summer, and so on. r.on May. 1890. to February. 1892, is a pe-iod of twenty-one months. l'he two dates will Ions; remain clear in the mind of Mrs Martha Bowles, of 183 Llangvf-lach road, Morriston/nrar Swansea. For the first was the beginning and the second the ending of an experience which was bad enough in itself, yet only the introduction to something vastly worse It was like the 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 the horizon while the skies are yet clear. She expresses it thus, in the very words most of us use on fimilar occasions: -I felt that something was wrong with me-sorr.cthing hanein* o-er me;' ° ° Ah! dear me. How often we think such feelinzs are a warnin? sent to the spirit, when l ,V act , tb -ey arc caused entirely by the condition of our bodies. She felt heavy, languid anil tired, and mentally depressed. This was not only melancholy to her but new, as she had always been strong and healthy. Then came the discomforts which there could be no mistake ahout. They are common enough to be sure «.-h, yes. But isn't that all the more a reason why we should understand what they mean'' Certainly," you will sav. Well, then, there was that bad, offensive taste m the mouth that so many of us have had ; the failure of the appetite, and the pain in the chest and sides af-rr eating. The worst pain was in the right, side, where it was verv heavy That pointod to the liver, which is ocated on that side: and when anything ails the liver it is as though the big water wheel of a mill bad. got fixed so as not to turn round. For the hver does half a dozen kinds of work and when it strikes work the rest of the organs take a sort of rainy holiday. Presently her skin and the white of her eves te» fW H< M aß i" U i Um ?. leaV6B - That meant bile in the blood; the liver was off its dutv that, is a sure sign. The kidney secretion was the; color of blood instead of a clear amber which meant that the trouble had alreadv reached those important organs. Then the stomach was 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 its proper track. On and on along this line, constantly getting further and further from the happy land of health ; this was the history of those twenty-one months-all bad enough, vot a'l preparatory for worse ones, i 11 on % dav in February. 1892 » hj . . letter of August 18th, 1893, "I began to have dreadful pam and cramp.

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.
