A report having reached us that a discovery had been made at Woollahra which would prove os great interest to the general public, we at once dispatched a reporter to the scene of interest to gather full and reliable information. We. are indebted to Mr Ed. Barsley, pianoforte tuner, of 19-Waverley-road, for the description supplied. This gentleman very courteously received our representative, and in reply to him, said: — "I have •been resident in Australia for the greater part of my life, and have seen but little of my native health, having come out here with my parents at a very early age. I am a pianoforte tuner by profession, a-ad am well known throughout the colony; this latter fact should add weight to my statements. "Now to deal with the subject of your visit. I have on and off for the last 1.5 years been a martyr to rheumatism, and, indeed, have quite recently recovered from a very severe attack. My discovery is that Dr Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People are an unfailing remedy for this torturing disease, and to emphasise my case I must tell you that each of my ailments— for I had more than one as you will learn later — were so formidable as said to be incurable by the hospitals and doctors by whom I was treated. Towards the end of April last year I had a very bad attack of rheumatism, and this was accompanied by a swelling in the groin, but without pain. A chemist gave me some liniment to rub on the affected part, but this brought temporary relief only. After this I went to work again for two or three days, but was soon compelled to give in, being unable to continue any longer. I then consulted a doctor." "Was this treatment; successful?" "No, he told me mine was an exceptional case, and he could give me but little assistance; that I was suffering from a complex trouble — hip joint disease with locomotor ataxia. My eyesight was also failing; this, he said, often accompanied cases of locomotor ataxia. An emiuent oculist told me that it was a case of optic atrophy." "What did you do then, Mr Barsley?".. ' I went to three different hospitals in all, and came out no better than I went in. . A friend I met in one hospital asked me if I had given Dr Williams' Pink Pills a trial; I said I had not. My friend at once advised me to do so, adding that he knew of some wonderful cures they had affected in cases of locomotor ataxia." "Did you follow his advice?" "I am rejoiced to say I did." "With what result 1" "Well, by the time I had taken three boxes I felt better, and for this reason determined to go on with them. The benefits derived from continuing the treatment are very evident. I can now move about fairly well, getting up and down stairs without any assistance, whereas when I left the hospital I could only crawl about with difficulty. I am returning to my usual avocation of pianoforte tuning, and that, as you know, requires a clear head and the use of pne's limbs. "And you feel equal to it, Mr Barsley?" "I feel quite equal to it, and more too, for I shall be constantly travelling through the colony, and of this I shall be doubly glad, as it will afford me a valuable opportunity to bring sufferers and sceptics face to face with practical proof of the wonderful curative powers possessed by Dr. Williams' Pink Pil's for Pale People." For the information of sufferers from hip disease, we would especially mention that in connection with the above marvellous cure that the hip bone was dislocated, necessitating the muscles and tissues doing extra duty for it. Dr. Williams* Pink Pills have cured numerous cases of paralysis, locomotor ataxy, spinal disease, rheumatism, and sciatica; also of diseases arising from impoverishment and vitiated humors of the blood, which cause scrofula, rickets, chronic erysipelas, consumption of the bowels, and. lungs, anaemia, pale and sallow, complexions, general muscular weakness, loss of appecite, palpitations, pains in the back, nervous headache, early decay, all forms of female weakness, and hysteria. These Pills are not a purgative. They are genuine only with the full name, Dr. Widiams' Pink Pills for Pale People, and are sold by chemists and by Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.; Wellington, N.Z., who will forward (post paid) on receipt of stamps or post order, one bqxfor 3s, or half-dozen for 15s 9d. They are unrivalled as a tonio for both sexes.
