PUBLIC NOTICES DR LAMENT'S STRONG FINGERS.. " WAS afraid you were going to- a!ip JL through my fingers," said good old Dr Lamont. The writer was a boy of about seventeen then. While a student at school, more than 300 miles from home, I was taken down with pneumonia. I had a tough time, and for two or three weekß my life was despaired of. But vouth and good Care won the fight, and one bright momins; I %a| ready to go home with my dear father, who had come for me. I was weak still, but well and happy clear up to the brim. Oh, what a ru?e !. Oh, what sweet air ! Oh, what a glorious world I had got back into ! and what a reception from mother and sisters at the familiar house. Oh, life! Oh, health! Oh, dvlce, duke, aomum ! Such an illness, if one survives it, only makes the sense of existence and its blessings more k., en and delightful. It is good rather than bad. Lucky boy, not to have slipped through the doctor s fingers. But when a roan with most of his days behind him has to write a line like this:«' All my life I have suffered more or less from disease "-why that is another and sadder story. It is the olds between an occasional thunderstorm and a sky always covered with clouds. We quote what he says, reminding ihe reader that ia this matter Mr William Hodkinson voices the experience, of millions. He says: "I always had a bad taste in the month, no proper relish for food, and after eating had pain and fulness at the chest."
These sensations are symptoms of acute Indigestion. In the Btomach there is marked lobs of power. The food U neither rolled over, as it should be, so that the whole of it in turn may be presented to the digestive fl id, nor is it duly moved on towards tho outlet into the bowels. As a result it ferments and gives off irritating acids and gases, hence the patient complains of pain, weight, distension, acidity,- and flatulence in that region. Thence the.poisons proceed to every other part of the body, ard headache, vertigo, gout, rheumatism, depressed spiiitp, and a score more of evils follow ; among them, possibly, nervous prostration, progressive anaemia, locomotor ataxis, and more or less complete paralyris. "Frequently," continues Mr FodkinsoD, "I was sick, and as time went on I became very weak and feeble. I consulted one doctor after another, and took various medicines, but obtained no real or lastine; relief from any of them. This describes my general condition until the fortunate day when I read about Mother Siegel's Curative Syrup. I was impressed by the statements others had made concerning it, and proceeded to try it. After, taking one bottle I found relief, and was soon entirely free from my old complaint. Since that time (now eight years ago) I have enjoyed good health. Knowing personally of it 3 virtues, I have recommended this remedy to hundreds, and have never heard of its having failed to give relief. But tor Mother Seigel's Syrup I should have been in my grave years ago.—(Signed) William Hodkrason, Hollington, near Uttoxeter, Staffordshire, August 11th, 1893." Mr Hodkinson is well known and highly respected. He is a local preacher in the Methodist Church, and by employment a quarry master. Had he gone into the grave, as ho feared he should, he would have been missed and lamented by the community in which he has long been useful, and will live to be useful, we hope, for years to come. Now let us repeat our leading thought. Short illnesses, even though sharp and dangerous, may result in good rather than haim. But a disease that drags its victim through decades of lingering distress—what shall we say of it? The trouble and suffering it inflicts is beyond estimate, and its name is indigestion and dyopupsia. And the name of ihe medicine that cures it Mr Hodkinson has done you the favor to mention with clearness and emphasis.
A VICTIM OP FUNCTIONAL DISEASE. ALAXUM never fails anyone In snoh a predicament. To sufferers from Sick Headaohe, Dyspepsia, Biliousness, and Obstipation it is "a friend in need and a friend indeed." Assist nature by ALAXUM, and yon will avoid a multitude of distressing functional derangements and dlseaseg. Of all known medicines for renewing the energy ALAXUM Is the b=!Bt. Its secondary effect* are marvellous. M\ny persons afflicted with Constipation have testified not only to its immediate relieving properties but to the fact that the cure lasts. No care is required while u<ing it. It does not interfere with the diet, habits, or ocoupation, and produces no inconvenience in its action. It is at once a laxative, an appetiser, and a stirau-la-ing tonic, prepared scientifically, and endorsed by the Press as the most valuable medicine that has ever been offered to the public in a popular form. ALAXUM CURES BILIOUSNESS BILIOUS HEADACHE DIZZINESS COSTIVENESS SOUR STOMACH LOSS of APPETITE COATED TONGUE INDIGESTION DYSPEPSIA FLATULENCE HEARTBURN PAINS AND DISTRESS AFTER EATING, And all Functional Derangements of the System of Nutrition. NOTE THIS WELT,.-The whole system of a human being may be perfectly sound, and yet through derangement or weakness the organs of the body may perform their inactions or their work sluggishly, thus giving rise to want of appetite, and a consequent general impoverishment of the whole being. Such a condition causes thousands of people to fancy that they are consumptive, while they are really only in need of a remedy to set the organs of the body working harmoniously. Reason points te two essential qualities in a remedy for thi3 purpose. It must creaie an appetite for food, and at the same time assimilate its nutriment. With either of these qualities alone the remedy would be worse than useless, but with both it becomes a power for incalculable gocd, ALAXUM is the only medicine which jombines these two qualities. It is a natnral appetiser, and its first action is to create hunger. After the appetite is satisfied it acts direotly on the Btomnob, liver, and kidneys, clearing away all effete matter and exciting them to activity. The system then receives nutrition and new life from the proper assimilation of the food; and where there is no organic disease health must follow. This is common sense and cannot be gainsaid. Accept no substitute that may be recommended to be "just as good." It may be better—for the dealer-because of its better profit, but in such an instance tho dealer is not tho one who needs help.
