A MAN WHO SWORE BEFORE THE MAYOR.
His Worship the Mayor of Waloha (N.S. W.) recently received a request which surprised him greatly. It was to take the sworn testimony of a felecto’, Mr Denis WaLh, as to the benefits he had derived from Dr Williams’s Pink Pilia for Pale People, which ho had taken for Bright’s disease. In order to learn the exact facts a reporter of the ‘Walcha Witness’ went out to Winterbourne a few days ago. “ Is it a fact,” he asked, “ that you have been cured by Dr Williams's Pink Pills ?” “ R is,” he replied. “ I was in great pain for a long time, but I can now do any amount, of hard work_ with the greatest of ease, I first felt the pain after being thrown from a horse, and was laid up for eight months. I, tried almost everything without receiving any benefit.” ‘"And what is your object in giving an unsolicited testimonial ?” ‘"Simply that others may derive benefit by the same means. For a long time I was in such frightful agony that I could do nothing, I had to crawl to a log to get on my horse. I could not hold myself upright. I saw different doctors. One told me that my spine had been injured, and that I should have to undergo an operation. Another said that I had Bright’s disease. After a time I saw Dr Williams’s Pink Pills advertised. I tried to get a box, but no one kept them in Waloha, so I sent direct to Sydney for the first two boxes. After taking the first box I obtained relief, and continued to do so until completely cured. I bavo used five boxes in all. Life ia now a pleasure. I can mount my horse with ea l e, raise heavy legs, and I feel as well as ever. I have recommended tho pills to other sufferers to their great benefit. While taking the pills I followed the directions given on each box. Many people I know have taking them without adhering to the instructions, and have ob'ained no relief. Bubbing did me me good ; but, after taking Dr Williams’s Pink Pills, I was convinced that my complaint was caused by the state* of my blood. I can now run up and down the falls with tho best of the hands on the station. The men on the station know the pains I suffered and the expense I was put to in my endeavors to find relief from toilure.” “ You certainly look well,” the reporter remarked. “ Yes, thanks to Dr Williams’s Pink Fills.” Following is the sworn testimony ot Mr Walsh J "Sir,—l have.b-on a sufferer tor 22 years with Bright’s disease and a bad back, and very often could not lace my boots, and would have to go on my knees to gather anything from the ground. At times I was completely useless, and suffered considerable pain when I moved about, and -lost the use of my legs. I tried every remedy and various doctors, even Chinese, but without any benefit. I then saw your advertisement about Dr Williams’s Pink Pills, and resolved to give them a trial. After u-ing the first box I felt considerably improved, and went on using them, with the result that I am now quite cured, have no pains in tho back, and 1 feel as young as I did 25 years ago; ia fact, I never felt better than I do now, and consider your pills a most valuable medicine. “ (Signed) DENIS WALSH. - “Signed and declared before me this 30th day of January, 1897. “James N. B. Watts, Mayor, Walcha.” The genuine Dr Williams’s Pink Pills are sold only in wooden boxes, about two inches in length, in a wrapper with the full name, Dr Williams’s Pink Pills for Pale People, printed in red. They are never sold in bulk, or from glass jars, and any dealer who offers substitutes in this form should be avoided. In case ot doubt it is better to send direct to the Dr Williams’s Medicine Company, Wellington, N.Z., enclosing the price, 3s a box, or six boxes for 15s 9d. These pills are not a purgative, and they contain nothing that could injure the most delxate. As a spring medicine Dr Williams’s Pink Pills far surpass all other remedies. Their act lon, on the blood and nerves is prompt, and the effect is wonderful. La-situde givei way to a feeling of renewed energy, and the lurking see ! s of disease, resulting from tho indoor confinement of the winter m mths, are speedily expelled fr -m system. These pills are sold only in boxes, the wrai per around which bears the full trade mark, "‘Dr Williams’s Pink Dills for Pale I'eop’e.” A pill, even if colored pink, offered in any other form, is a fraudulent imitation, and i-hould bo pn mptly relusid. Buyers will protect thcm-clves against imposition by bearing this in mind.—(Advt ]
