The Csß© of Mr. 0. BOUQHTONi .{BX A DDNBDISt EBEOKMB.) It is exceedingly difficult to get an actual acquaintance with the constitution of a country unless ono has lived for a timo in ..face-to-face view of its operation. Of ton the exact meaning of the words employed to describe tlio working of a constitution can only begot on, the spot, and so it is with matters oonccrning the individual members of every homo. To gain an accurate insight into affairs that once affected Mr. Clement Boeghton, of No. 58 Forth-itreet, Dunedin, a reporter called at that gentleman's residence and enquired: "Is it a fact that you , were orico ailing with/indigestion, and that • you' are now qmto cured 1" "That is bo," answerod Mr, Bougliton, "and it is to Clements Tonic that my gratitude ,is due for being in such splendid the present timo. It was when I ..-. was living at Tuapcka West, about four or five miles from Lawrence, • where I was working, that my sufferings, began, and a • fellpw-workman put mo on to taking tho remedy that cured me." © " Had you been trying any other modi cine before you took Clements Tonic 1" "■I-.had taken several kinds,- but they ''."\ had no good effect; so that for fully five months I had to persevere with my work under most unfavourable circumstances. My appetite got so frail that I scarcely over enjoyed my meals, and many a day I had nob tho least inclination for food. It docs not tako a great deal of that sort of business to reduce a man's strength, as I, found out to my sorrow,- and when, sleeplessness also;, j Btarted bothering ,me my vitality ran out'., all the more quickly. • Iri Ibis way I Boon ■:'■' 'becamo so lahguidthat 'Iliad no desire for work at all, and with the feeling of drowsiness that settled upon mo I was not in the right framo to tako interest in anything. -..-Nearly-the-.whole -of'.some- nights passed before I could get to sleep, and when I woke up it was usually with a nasty lrcadache, that tormented me for tho rest of the day. A bitter taste in my mouth gave my morning meal an unpleasant flavour, and aftei eßting ever so little I was afflicted with a heavy sensation in the chest, which seemed to'interfere with my breathing. $But that was not the worst part of my troubles, as my stomach used to become filled with wind that arose from the undigested food, . and the pains that also .came, there,, were >-, severe in tho extreme. A'jiew experionce for mo, and ono that I,did(not like either, was to find that my nervous system was lireatly run down, f° r w ,hou',v,l ' dono'a little exerciso my nerves-were!'quite shaky, and at other times thoy sWrted to tremblb

if anything occurred that gave me a start; Often a strange mist'gath'eried ''niy 'eyes and gavo ine the'lmpreiilibn ;that little dark specks, like grains of'sobt, were.-danc-ing in front of me, while, >to make my life still more miserable, there were aches in my loins that sometimes made walking quite inconvenient, * I am not bum .what caused it, although I suppose;!! wris ono of my indigestion symptoms; buMhcre was a, pain right under my shoulder blades that I could'have done very well without; yet I had to bear every one of my ailments right up to the time I started taking Clements Tonio, and then, I am thankful to-say, I soon began to feel easier; Upon my word, I novor experienced such a rapid chango foi the bettor in all my life, and my speedy recovery affords emphatic proof of the curing capabilities of Cloments Tonic, which I can safely say is a genuine remedy for ailmenU limilar to the ones I suffered from." " Can you remember tho first benefits you derived?" " To tell you the truth, I felt more vigorous and cheerful.after taking a couple of bottles of Clements Tonic than I had been for along time, and.the appetite I got was surprising. By-and-byel noticed that my ; fOod was going through a proper process of ' digestion, for the wind and stomach pains - left off annoying me, and the heaviness had

For curing icadaches and making me sleep, besides !""■"" removing all pains and putting my nervous .;)' syßt«m into splendid fettle, I shall always !;.: Lear pleasing recollections of, Clements '■'■'.' Tonic, and you may publish these facts fur ■ ethers' benefit in any form you like." i
