'IT SHOULD UE DONE,
London, Feb. 21.—Tho Financial
News returns to the charge that the
Canadian government ought to acquire
control of tho Canadian Pacific Railroad. Tho article shows the three
euloniea of New South Wales, New
Zealand and Victoria have made the
namo mileage of railway, 5000 miles,
at Uio annual charge to them of £2,-
035.000, whereas the Canadian Pacific
could be acquired for £1,050,000 per
annum. Tho Financial News contrasts
thi1 pluck of theso colonies with a population 2,500,000 with the Pusillanimity of Canada with 5,000,000, and adds:
"There can bo no question of material
advantage to Canada of having control
of this great system from the Atlantic
to tho Pacific, and practically control
of* all 1<job1 rates ih Canada." The
Financial Neios also has an article on
hinds belonging to the Canadian Pacific, proposing that they be held by a
Bep'arate company with a capital of
£9.000,000 which_ would represent a
value of 3 shillings per acre. The
shares to be given ratably as a bonus
to tho shareholders of the Canadian
Pacific, lt would have that company
raise by mortgage on tho lands two
million pounds to be used for promot-
Ginignitipn and assisting settlers to buy
previsions, homes, agricultural machinery, etc., tho company selling them
tho lands on long term payment. It
shows this plan would materially and
rapidly increase the prosperity of the
Northwest aud of the whole of Canada.
PRU1T GROWERS WANT PROTECTION.

CORRESPONDENCE,
A Government Stamp MIU.
Editor Columbian.—From all item
in yesterday's Columbian I learn tbat
a petition is being circulated Id the
mining regions, asking the government
to establish a custom itajnp mill',
smelter and chlorinating,wwki in tha
diotriofc of Cariboo,    JTl5» u m. move 10
the right direction, And 1 hope tha
government will be able to see their
way clear to meet the needs of the
petitioners. After more than twenty
years experience in developing and
managing quartz mines, and having wit*
nessed and experienced the difficulties
to be surmounted at the outset, in
all quartz mining districts, I consider
that the erection by the government
of good stamp mills in connection with
chlorinating works in some of the more
promising districts of the province
would be the most economical, and at
the same time the most effective posei*
ble method of developing their capabilities as gold producing centres.
Stamp mills are not expensive, one of
Sf teen stamps—for driving which a
fifteen II. P. engine and boiler would
be sufficient—would answer the pat-
pose; such a mill could be operated by
three men, and should reduce on an
average one ton of quartz in 24 houra,
for each stamp, ana amolgamate the
free gold, leaving the concentrated
tailings to be operated on in the chlorinating department. Aa soon ae it
is demonstrated that quartz mining
in any district could be macfe a paying
industry the government could be recouped by selling the works to private
parties, and private enterprise could
then be relied upon to supply all necessary facilities for reducing the ores.
John McNab.
Westminster, Feb. 21st, 1888.
Maple BMjce
Editor Columbian — Ita' eommon
with the people of this municipality X
feel surprised at Mr. Ferguson's
lengthy dissertation on road-making.
The matter of surprise waa intensified
on the discovery that Mr. Ferguson
gave to the public not facts but simply
fabrications of hia imagination. That
2500 feet of bridging at from 92 to $3
per foot were built ia simply nonsense.
That miles of road at a coat of $2500
per mile is simply a fib, and that $1000
was expended on the Wilson road is
anuther. Mr. Ferguson says "that
an undue amount of money had been
expended on roads in the vicinity ef
Port Hammond, and no doubt some of
it injudiciously." Such an exprenfon
from Mr. Ferguson is very amusing.
He has been a member of the council
for the laat three years, and not in ft
single instance has he raised his voice
against the " undue amount" expended. But through some hook or crook
he was this year raised from the degree of a councillor to that of a reeve,
and, be it remembered, he it not reeve
by the will of a majority of the duly
qualified electors. I shall probably let
you know the circumstances that led to
the election of Mr. Ferguson to tha
reeveship in a future letter. It il
since his elevrtion that he sees the
affairs of the municipality in a different
light. The C. P. B. employees he
calls "privates in the shovel brig*
ades," and he hu bestowed on myself
tlie honor of influencing the counoil of
which he was a member by "persistent harangues and intrigues." Mr.
Ferguson reminds me of '' a man so
various that he seemed to be not one,
but all mankind's epitome, stiff in
opinion, always in the wrong; waa
everything by starts and nothing long!
But in .the course of one revolving
moon, was farmer, fiddler, statesman
and buffoon."
J. J. WILSON,
Maple Ridge, Feb. 13th.

Ottawa, Feb. 16. —Lord Lansdowne

Winnipeg, Feb. 17'—The OgUvie
Milling Company, of this city, have

quenco of tho blockade. gitihj f ritifilx Columbian
Tnesday Events.. Feb. 21, 1888.
It will be seen from a report of
the proceedings published elsewhere
that the council 1ms determined to
take conclusive action with respect
to thu steam ferry, We think thit
action is decidedly in the public interest. Every person knows that
the ferry has not been carried on as
it shoOld have been, nnd complaints
hnvebeen frequent nnd urgent, ft
is now about n month since the
river became free from ice, and during all that tirue there has been no
Way of taking teams or cattle across
the river. The same grievance existed last year. If the ferry boat
had been ever-hauled during tho
time when she was not able to run
on account of ice, she would have
been ready to resume her trips as
soon as the river became clear. The
peoplo of Surrey especially havo
been loud in complaints against the
ferry, for they havo been among the
chief sufferers. In his letter to the
city counoil, tho clerk of Surrey intimated that tho inefficiency of tho
ferry was interfering with the pro-
gross ond development of the municipality. Wo have no reason to
doubt this statement. There is no
municipality whose trade so naturally belongs to Westminster ns the
municipality of Surrey, in consequence of its geographical position;
and any obstacle placod in the way
of that trade must affect the inter
ests of the municipality. But anything that hinders trado coming to
this city militates against our interests, so that both tho city and the
municipality of Surrey have been
suffering from the inefficiency of the
ferry. It may be that there wns no
money in it to the ferryman, and
that he will be woll enough satisfied
to surrender the charter on fair
terms. We have long been of opinion that it would be iu the public
interest if the ferry were run by
the city instead of by a contractor,
and'if the charter can now be acquired on terms fair and just to the
contractor, we think the city ought
to take it. ' Nothing that wo can
do to facilitate trade with the other
side of the river should tic regarded
as of small importance. Our principal hope lies in the agricultural
trade. Tho development of Surrey
and other districts lying adjacent to
us, therefore, means directly tho increase of our own trade, and the
city should see to it that the means
of crossing the river are tho best
that can be provided. It will pay
this city to run a first-class ferry
at an actual loss.
Hr. Blaine's letter emphatically
declining nomination as Republican
candidate for the presidency hns
produced a profound sensation in
political circles across the lines. A
great many people suspect that his
letter is not honest, and that he is
liable to be persuaded yet to reconsider; but there seems to be really
no ground for such an opinion. It
remains now to be seen what effect
this will have upon the party and
especially upon those who were
driven out of the party four years
ago because Mr. Blaine had been
chosen as the presidential candidate.
The Mugwumps, although not
strong in number, uro by no means
insignificant in influence because
among them may be found snmo of
the beet men of the nation, But as
the choice of Blaine was the immediate cause of their alienation
from the Republican party, his
withdrawal now may become tho
occasion of their returning to the
old party allegiance. Whether this
will be or not is a quostion which
will somewhat disturb tho political
world so long as it remains in doubt.
Those who left Blaine for Cleveland
in the belief that they were doing so
for the nation's good have not beon
without misgiving. For a while
Mr. Cleveland's conduct seemed to
be perfectly in lino with the mnnly
professions which to a great extent
secured for him tho presidency, but
it must be confessed thnt he finally
lapsed into many things which looked like a capitulation to the power
of party pressure and thus weakened the loyalty of the Mugwumps.
We suppose the rehabilitation of the
Mugwumps may to a great extent
depend upon the result of the coming party conventions, President
Cleveland is certain to receive the
Democraticnomination, but on whom
the Republican choice will fall with
Blaine out of the field is extremely
doubtful. If he is a man of clean
hands and clear reoord, nothing
thould stand in the way of the restoration of the Mugwumps; if he is
k man unworthyof public confidence,
and bent on a continuence of the
spoils system, the Mugwumps will
probably adhere to Cleveland on the
principle that of two evils it is wise
to choose the least. The present
president has done many things
worthy the head of a great nation;
and he hoi certainly done a very
great deal towards destroying some
of the worst features of party government It will be a groat pity if
the reforms accomplished under his
administration should be lost through
a bad choice of his successor.

'    Pnre air and proper, food are the fundamental points In the care of the sick; the
two pillars of good nursing on which tlie
whole structure rests. If these are withheld,
all else that can be done is like pouring water
iu a sieve—a little clings while the greater
, part is lost   When these nre given, many
minor details that are usually insisted upon
; as ol great importance mny tc overlooked or
omitted, without berlmis*detriment to the
sufferer.   To the superficial observer they
may seem easy things to furnish, but any
' physician with a large practice will testify
thut he has more or less difficulty in obtaining them for bis patients under tlie most favorable circumstances.   In many cases, even
with incessant wutchfulness on his part, be
. cniinot be sure that In his absence they aro
provided in proper ouandtics and continuously.   In order to hsve pure nir the most
' scrupulous cleanliness must prevnil iu the
' sick room, all the surroundings ofthe invalid
1 must be spotlessly nent and fresh.   To keep
them bo requires no small miiount of care und
1 ingenuity on the imi't ui the nurse, mid nil
her knowledge will bu needed to do it with-
j out disturbing and irritating her charge.   It
is evident, then, that pure air involves much
I more than the mere labor of opening and
shutting a window.
To provide proper food for a sick person it
Is Indispensable that the nurse should know
scictliing of the effect of different (onus of
food ou the human system; what kinds arc
. best adapted to repair the waste ofdiseusc,
I and how tbey can be administered to obtain
the best result.   Milk, for instance, whieh is
! the staple article of diet lor most persons
suffering from serious illness, may be so given
I ns to be positively injurious instead of bene
tieial.   Although it Is a liquid, when swul-
, lowed, the action of the gastric juice iu the
i stomach turns It into a solid curd, like soft
*) blaue mange.   This must be again converted
i into a liquid before it eun be ipsorberi to odd
',' in the nourishment of the body.- If too much
' Is given at once a mnss of curd is formed
which Is more than tne stomach can take care
of in its weakened condition. It digests very
j slowly, or not ut ull, and causes discomfort
md oppression it' it Is not rejected altogether,
j xhatisiing Instead of nourishing tbo patient.

"Well," uid the old man, "first we lake t

Forthe flrflt time in my life as a housekeeper, I have iir.'ivt.>:V*iu.!m Ice-cream
freezer, nnd I wiali tu -toll every one,
especially those who liw in the country
nnil can get good cr.^irn, what a pleasuro
it lia3 been-to. uk. During very hot
weather wo have made ice-cream three
Utiles, and tho surprise of the gentlemen
of the family when it appeared on the
table, was a pleasure to witness. The
trouble of preparation is not nearly so
great as is often supposed, tlie cost is
comparatively small, ami tho superiority
to confectioner's cream «o groat, that
every one is advised to try it.
Ibought the freezer advertised in Good
Housekeeping, at the liiyge ,r,toro in New
York where we pet all of our housekeeping things, and with a stout canvas bag,
ami a wooden mallet for pouudliigJ the
ice fino, we were •• (ulpped. I mako tho
mixture as follow-: Ono gwioi'diis pint
of milk put on to Doll Ln tho double
boiler. Mix together two thh ■•■j bu.isi'ul
of (lour, one cupful of sugar, ami /our or
five eggs J beat these vory light and ntlr
into the boiling milk;" cook twenty
minutes and set nway to cool. Fewer
eggs will do, but the more ii-wl tiio richer tho cream will bo. A go> I way ia to
arrange to make a whil cuke on tho samo
day, using tho whites oi the eggs for the
cake, and tho yollw for tlio mixture,
whiim may bo rimilti the day beforo
iring.
When ready to freeze, mil ono quart
of cream, if vou have it, ah 1 ono cupful
of sugar. Wou8oqnt?gmirt of milk, or
tho creamy part of two bottled of milk,
just as it liappeus; put this in the
freezer, pack thf tub full of pou:j*le.l ice
anil suit, using nbout t'v.i and a half pints
of salt evenly dislril itor'l through tlio
ice. Turn tho haiull ■ o; tho freezer'slowly
at (list, very rapidly for the last few minutes, and in about twenty minutes you
will havo a nice ice-cream. Take out
the beater, put on the cover, being sure
to put a cork in the top whore tho beater
bosh through; put a heavy cloth or blanket over it and it will keep for seferal
hours without any mon ice.
For flavoring I use a email piece' of
vanilla benn, split so that Iho tiny black
sends can come oat, boiled iu the milk
and taken out before freezing. Those
beans cun be bought for ten cents apiece
at ordinary drug stores, and one wilt last
a tons time.
We havo enjoyed experimenting iu
fancy creams; there arc two of us, and
the labor is much lighter and experimenting moro interesting, I find, when one
has a companion, aud we havo made
strawberry and coffee ice cream,
Strawberry Ice-Cream,-- Take ono quart
of.Strawberries, crush them with plenty
of sugar and strain". This will yield about
a pint of juice. Ail 1 to thisiiibbut a pint
of the vanilla mixture iifti r it has boen
diluted villi one quart uf crettm, or milk.
When the strawberry c vim is frozen,
packitinamol lorutitvptil; putathiek
sheet of white pap sr over I ic top, lit on
thocover perfectly, and pack it in a pail
or other vessel tilled with ico and salt.
Thon freeze the vanillu crcuiA and leave
it in the freezer until serving time; or
the two can be put together iii one mold,
making a pretty dish when turned out.
Of course (his entails extra trouble and
the use of a double portion of ice, but occasionally, as a treat, one ean servo two
kinds of civain at tho same time.
('-,/'■■' 7*T-('*v*fM».--Is made tlio same as
vanilla, with the addition of ouo cupful
of very strong coffee, and a littlo moro
sugar. .^
Chocolate Ice-Cream.—Scrape one square
(an ounce of Baker's chocolate) mix with
it two tablcspoonfula of BUgar and one of
boiling water, melt this and add to tho
vanilla mixture. If a stronger flavor of
chocolate is liked, twice tlio quantity
may be utod. When cold add ono quart
of milk, and ono CUp of sugar, and freeze.
Banana Ice-Cream.—SHco six bananas
and stir into tlie vanilla cream after it is
frozen.
Peach Re-dream. ~ During tho peach
season a very delicious ice-cream may
be made by slicing peaches, sugaring
them well and stirring them into the
vanilla cream alter it Is frozen.
Wc trust many of our readers may bo
tempted to try theso wholesome and refreshing ice-creams. Tho boys of the
family will, I am sure, rejoice, and be
very willing to take turns in doing the
freezing, for the Bake of the pleasure in
store at serving time.—Cor. in GW

Bl'MMKlt SQUASH AKD UHKI9.
Summer squash may be cooked according to any of tho preceding recipes, except that for the mayonnaise; if tho skin
Ib tender, it need not be removed. When
the skin is hard, tho squash should be
peeled before it- is cooked; and if the
seeds nre large, it should bo boiled, ami
then rubbed through a sieve to free the
nulp from them; after this it can he
heated, with sail, pepper, and butter, and
stirred over the lire.until the superfluous
moisture is evaporated beforo serving It.
Tender squash, eut iu dice, boiled just
tender, aud then drained ami sorvotl in
white sauce, is one of ihe most dclirio:n
of summer vegetables.
Now beets are excellout cooked afhr
nny of theso recipes, except thai for
mashing the vegetable. A favorite ('nr-
oliua dish is new Bllgar-bcol pud l.u *.
The beets uro boiled just tender, iieeici,
cut in a small dice, mixed with mil:; nn i
eggs, a pint each of beets and milk, twu
or three eggs beaten smooth, a palatali e
seasoning of salt mil pepper, and the
least grating of nutmeg; pui these ingredients into an earthern dish which ran
be sent to the table, bake tlie pu-Ulln ;
until the custard is set, aud then sen e . I
hot as u vegetable.       .
I'ltKKKliKt WATER-ICB.
After you have prepared tho wator-lcb
pour it into the can, cover it with tho tin
lid, and puck it heavily—that is, have the
ice in pieces the size uf an egg, and use a
quart and a pint of salt us you go on.
Allov it to stand until very cold and
Bl'ghlly froitcn nt tho sides. Insert tlie
heater und turn very slowly, for a moment, ami then cover and lot stand one
hour. Uy this timo It should be frozen
to tho consistency of soft snow. Now in-
s**rt the beater again aud turn slowly,
backwards and forwards, until frozen
hard. Cover, repack, aud stand aside
until wanted, Water-ice isinuch harder
to freeze than ice-cream and should not
be beaten nearly so long.

Advnm-e VTestmlnMcr.
For soveral years back the energotifl
proprietors of the Royal City Planing
Mills Co. have been uBing thoir utmost
endeavors to charter vessels to load
lumber at the company's wharf, in this
city, for foreign ports. Ship agents
and owners could not, however, bo induced to chatter thoir vessels to load
in Westminster, owing to the supposed
dangerous entrauce at the mouth of
the river, insurance laws and for other
reasons. Since the channel improvements have boon completed, and the
entranoe to tho mouth of tho river has
been properly buoyed, these obstacles
havo almost disappeared, and navigation into the Fraser has been rendered
much more safe and easy than into tlio
Columbia rivor. A few weeks ago Mr.
Hendry, manager of the Royal City
mills, left for San Francisco with tho
purpose in viow of chartering several
vessels to carry the company's lumber
to the foreign markets. . Yesterday a
gentleman in this city received a letter
from Mr. Hendry whioh contained the
welcome news that he was, at timo of
writing, negotiating with the agents
for chartering six vessels to load lumber nt Westminster, two for Australia
and the other four for South American
ports. Mr, Houdry also says one voh-
sel, at least, will arrive within 30 days,
and very likely four or five will arrivo
and be loading at the seme time. This
is important and valuable news to
Westminster, nnd tho benefit the city
will reap from the coming of these vessels, and the opening of this port to
slaps from all parts of the world, U
much greater than is generally supposed. The pluck and push displayed by
the manager nnd director of the company, in bringing about this much de-
Bired end, is vory praiseworthy, and
every citizen «f Westminster will join
heartily in wishing tho now departure
every possible success.
Frum (iriiulle Creek.
Mr. John Hook arrived from Granite Creek yeaterday and is slopping at
the Colonial. Ho came to the const
by the way of Nicola and had rathor
an unploasiint experience in reaching
the settlement in Nicola Valloy. Thero
being no winter trail from Granite
Creek it wob necessary to steer bj
compass or by reckoning, but nut
managing to strike the proper line he
was so unfortunate as to got lost nnd
it was two days before he struck the
proper trail again. Having plenty of
provisions with him Mr. Hook did not
want for food, but ua ho is Buffering
from ill health the exposure and extra
exertion ufere very trying. Mr. Hook
oays about 100 whites and 400 Chinese
wintered on Granite Creek, mid have
boon working pretty steadily all along.
Tunnelling has occupied the attention
of a largo proportion of the 111 in era,
and cradling has nlso houn successfully
carried on by some who built tram
ways to their cabin door and washed
the yellow nuggets iu comfort bc3ide a
blazing stove. Tho best paying mino
on tho creek at present is the Glad
atone. The G. O. M. h panning out
beautifully and the 17 men engaged in
tho tunnel average about an ounce of
gold per day each. Tho Gladstone is
ownud hy a company of throe mon who
feel confident the G.O.M. will pan out
i'nst as well for mnny months to como.
'ho next is the old Pope mino which
pans out about 5 ounces a wero for the
work of two mon. The mine would
yield double this quantity if a couple
moremen were employed,butt heownors
prefer to strain the dust through thoir
own fingers. Most of tho claims aro
panning out good wages to the mon
working 011 them, but no big strikes
ure recorded. Mr. Hook doos not
think there wili be mnny go into Granite Creek this summer for claim working, though a small regimont of quartz
hunters msy bo expected.

A Progreanlve District.
Mr, Josoph C. Armatrong, who returned on Sunday night from up-river
ports, brings au interesting budget of
news with him. In the neighborhood
of Chilliwhack cattle are running out,
find lots of feed und nre looking remarkably woll for this season of the
year. Tho village of Centreville is
is building up rapidly and bids fair to
become nn important littlo town in the
near future. It is already connected
with Westminstor by telegraph, and
Popcum by telephone, and expects to
extend tho telephone lino to tho landing very shortly. Situated in tho
heart of the groat Chilliwhack farming
district thero seems to ho no le-im
why CentrcvillcshoukluotsoonmakeilB
voico heard among iho other rising
towns of tho province. A company of
Ottawa lumbormcn havo tuiidu application for 24,000 acres of excellent thn-
bbr laud, situated in roar of tho settlement, which, when lumbering operations begin, will prove another source
of wealth to Centreville, as the most
economical outlet is through tho heart
of the Chilliwhack district. What the
canneries are to tho Delta so will the
lumbering interests bo to Centreville.
At Liiigley tho Hudson's Bay Co. have
sold all thoir land from the old fort
extending seren miles back from tho
river. Thero nre many schools,
churches and beautiful farm houses
now scattered through Langley district,
and the "country is beginning lo assume tho appearance of un old settlement. Many persons with moans havo
bought farms in that neighborhood
during the past year nud nro making
valuable improvements theroon. The
peoplo of Liiigley are vory anxious for
telegraph communication with Westminster and offer to furnish the poles
nud a telegraph operator free, if
tlie C. P. R. will string tho wires from
the river to tho We3tininster-Chilli-
whack line, ti distance of only 0 or 0
miles, Tho' line could be run across
prnirio land almost the whole distance,
which would mako tho cost of sl ringing
tho wires very light. Few peoplo of
Westminster have any idea of tho improvements going on in Surroy.
Through Clovor Valley and Serpentine
and Nicolmcckl flats well cultivated
farms, thriving orchards, and largo
bands of tine cattle are to bo seen on
evory side, indicating a very prosperous and progressive community, Tlio
Royal City mills carry on a largo logging business iu this municipality, and
with their usual energy and enterprise
arc building a tramway six miles in
length, from tho timber limits lo the
Water, on whicli to get out tbo lotfs.
All through tho district tho farmers

Monday, Fob. 20.—-Tho houso was
engaged in discussing tho resolutions
offered by Mr. Humphreys, charging
Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir with disloyalty.
Mr. Humphreys asked for the appointment of a royal commission to enquire
into the case. He maintained that in
taking up this matter he wob doing no
more than discharging a duty ho owed
to the Queen and the country, nud that
if Mr. Dunsmtir was innocent ho would
support the motion. Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir declared thnt the charge was utterly false and without foundation,
and he would leave the house to deal
with it aa it aaw fit. Hon. Mr. Davie
moved that the matter bo referred to
a select committee of tho house. Ho
pointed out that it would bo months
before a report could bo received from
a royal commission, and iu tho meantime a case now in the courts rotating
to this matter could not proceed. Beforo appointing a royal commission tho
house should know something as to
the ground upon which tho charge
rested, and to show this ground would
bo tho work of tho committee, which
would have powor to examine witnesses under oath. Mr. Beaven said
the committee could not compel witnesses to give evidonco. What tho
house wanted to know was whether tho
govornment favored tho annexation of
tho islnnd to the U. S. He declared
that Hon. Mr, Dunsmuir had obtained
his position as president of tic council
because of his money and not his
brains. He moved tho appointment of
a royal commission. Messrs. Semlin,
Orr, MoLeese opposed the appointment of a house committee, and do
clared thnt tho public would havo no
confidence in suoh a partisan tribunal.
Hon. Mr, RobBou said the opposition
might appoint threo members of tho
committeo and tho government three.
Mr. Humphreys attacked Hon. Mr.
Davie and Hon. Mr. Robson in a vigorous speech. He declared that Iho
attornev-genoral had been guilty of
unpardonable conduct in accepting a
fee from the crown to prosecute and
another from Mr, Dunsmuir to defend
him. Tho president of tho council, ho
said, wua a metallic character sitting
in the house who acted as u tyrant,
and he (Mr. Humphreys) was perfectly
certain that he was guilty of tho charge
brought against him. The provincial
secretary, ho said, was also corrupt-
one of the most corrupt ministers that
ever sat iu tho house. The following
committee was appointed to investigate
the charge: Messrs. Duck, Allen, Anderson, Baker, Fry, ond Martin—the
leader of tho opposition having declared tlmt no member of his party
would sit on such a committee.
Faqoep Oot.—None but those who
havo become fagged out know what a
depressed, miserable feeling it is. All
strength is gone, and despondency has
taken hold of tlie sufferers. They feel
as though there is nothing to livo for.
There, however, is a cure—one box of
Parmolee's Vegetable Pills will do wonders in restoring health and strength.
