"I have called to ascertain the truth of the rumor that has reaohed us of your having recently suffered from a severe attack of rheumatism.*

Such was the opening remark of our reporter to Mrs Brown, of 71 Simmons street, Enmore, whom we found doing a little washing.

"It is quite true," replied that lady, "but I am now happy to relate that I feel as well as I ever did. I have been suffering on and off from 'rheumatism for the last five years, and the slightest change in the weather used to give me most awful twinges. It chiefly affected my arms, and I can assure you, sir, that it took me all my time to do my hair. As to lifting this

s tub, that was a matter of sheer impossibility, i If it had not bren for some of my friends I s could never have gotten through my household duties. This complaint appeared to affect my ' entire system, and as to the money I havo spent ' in doctors' advice and so-called remedies—why, it mates me positively disgusted to think of, I [ began to ihink that if my sufferings continued t life was not worth living. Irememberoneday, E as I was sitting by the fire and endeavoring to I employ my mind by reading the 'Evening > News,' that an advertisement caught my eye headed "Dr Wi'.liama'a Pink Pills for Pale People onre Rheumatism, Sciatica, etc" Now, having wasted so muoh money already, I was at first loth to try any more advutised medir cines, bat I thought in for a penny in for a pound, so I invested in three boxes of this speoifio." "I hope you were careful to ask for Dr "Wil. \ liams's Pink Pills." I "I took particular notice to do that, for I had read of so many worthless imitations that 1 was oareful to ask for and obtain the genuine artiole."

"We think it.highly probable, Mrs Brown, that before long some of the compounders ox these worthless imitations will be spending time in seclusion, with the accompanying eccentri< cities of diet, official garb, and escort.'' "And indeed it wonld only serve them right. Brown (my husband) laughed at me when I told him that I was going in for a course of Dr "Williams's I ink Pills, and said: 'C hj, yon are going to chuck away some more money, are you V " "I Baid 'Yes, I am,' and right jlad am I that I Tan the risk of ' chucking away some more money,' for I am happy to tell you that they have done me all the good in"the world. Talk about the new woman. "Why, I feel now a brand-new woman, and my husband only this morning said to me: 'Well, old girl, if you were '* off color" a few weeks ago, you certainly Icok the "Pink" of perfection new. I sup-" pose it is your Pink Pills that have done it.* And so it is. Not only have I lost my rheumatic pains, but my appetite has returned, and I can now enjoy my fooJ. In fact-, my appetite is so good that Brown says I will eat him cut of house and home."

"How many boxen have vou taken, Mrs Brown?'

" I have bad seven boxes in all, and I havo so much belief in them that I intend always to keep a box by me, and I shall recommend the m to all my friends. You are quite at liberty to publish this statement, as I believe in giving credit to whom credit is due."

. Our reporter then withdrew, and reflected as he walked slowly away that here at least, was another case in which the many virtues of this marvellous preparation had been exhaustively and conclusively illustrated.
