The School Amendment Bill.
In moving tbe second reading of
this bill, Hon. Mr. Hobson aaid the
principal section was sec. 10, which
provides that the municipalities of
Vancouver, Westminster, Nanaimo,
and Victoria would be called upon
to contribute a quota towards the
support of the free schools, as it wu
considered that the oxpense was becoming too heavy to be altogether
borne by the provincial treasury. It
would be seen that the cost of education lind increased until it now
reached what might be termed the
alarming sum of $111,000 a year.
Now, it was deemed that this tax
upon the provincial revenue should
be reduced to about $100,000 by
making these four municipalities
beiir a small proportion of the total
cost - about 111,000. lt was thought
advisable to proceed slowly in the
direction of taxing the municipalities, and as a first step these four
were to be taxed to the amount
named. It was proposed to establish a high school in Vancouver on
the same lines as in Nanaimo and
Westminster. There was a decided
hostility shown to this proposition
by these four cities; but this should
not be, especially in Victoria. Ue
might add that in the future these
municipalities would only be required
to contribute one-third of the teachers' salaries, and it was also proposed
to introduce an amendment to make
it optional with these municipalities
to impose a fee upon scholars entering the high school It was time
some steps should be taken to relieve
the public treasury of this increasing burden, and there could be no
hardship in asking wealthy municipalities like Victoria to bear a small
share of the cost of education. He
felt sure hon. members would see
the fairness of thi% and referred to
the admirable school systtm of Ontario, which had no superior in the
world, to show that the poorer dis
tricts received substantial aid from
the government. He hoped hon.
members would take a broad and
liberal view of the matter and educate their constituents up to the
necessity of relieving tbe provincial
revenue of the total cost of education. Notwithstanding the hostility
shown ho hoped all would be prepared to show tbey were sufficiently
unselfish to aid the small outlying
districts to obtain the means of educating their children, He referred
to the system of education now in
vogue in this .province, and hoped
it would always continue as successful us it had proved in tho past.—
Mr. Beaven declared that the bill
was a direct blow at the school system and the municipalities as well.
It was true the cost of education
was increasing, but he considered it
unfair to single out certain municipalities to bear a share of tho expense,—Cot. Baker thought the bill
would aid outlying districts. With
respect to the high schools he would
favor tho adoption of tho English
system which made them self-supporting, the parents of children attending them being required to bear
a part of the expense.—Mr. Thompson opposed clause 10, because it
imposed too great a burden on Nanaimo. If Victoria wished to.pay a
share of her school expenses, she was
quite free to do so.—Mr. Soiulin opposed tho clause permitting grudu
ates to teach without passing a provincial examination. — Hon. Mr.
Davie warmly supported the bill,
and declared that the people of Victoria wero satisfied with it,—Mr.
Higgins supported the bill, except
tho clause relating to the graduates,
of which he seemed to be uncertain.
—Mr. Grant opposed the bill as unjust to the cities.—Hon. Mr. Vor-
non supported the bill, and denied
that it was a blow at the educational system. He believed many people
whose children attended the high
schools would be willing to pay for
their tuition.—Mr. Duck was opposed to clause 10.—Mr. Orr regretted the absence of Mr. Bole,
whose constituents were heartily opposed to the bill, and' Mr. Ladner
agreed with Mr. Orr.—Hon. Mr.
Turner defended the bill, and wos
followed by Mr. McLeeso, who opposed it.—The second reading wns
carried on a vole of 13 to 0.
The 'papal jubilee has been a very
satisfactory celebration to Leo
XIII. The Brussels Courier states
thnt the papal cotters are now in a
bettor condition than for years past,
tho Peter's pence presented to Leo
XUT. ou tint occasion of his jubilee
liming imioiiiitetl to 32,500,000
francs. Thn income from Peter's

LAST NlfiHT'S DESPATCHES.
A women's college.
Ottawa, April 18.—Parliament was
to-day petitioned by Sir Donald Smith,
Sir George Stephen and Hon, J. J. C.
Abbott for an act of incorporation for
a college for the higher education of
woman, to bo established at Montreal
with branches or preparatory schools
in the Northwest. It will be known
as the Royal Victoria College. Sir
Donald, it is said, proposes to endow
it with (250,000.
THE PARTHIA.
San Fbanoisco, April 18.— The
Canadian Pacific steamer Parthia having been thoroughly fumigated was allowed to dock today and began immediately to discharge her cargo. The
Parthia's passengers, most of whom
are Chinese, have been transferred to
ihe bark Alden Boss to wait the expiration of the regulation quarantine, 15
days The steamer will probably leave
for the Orient via Vancouver, on Saturday with a large cargo of freight.
MINISTER  PHELPS.
Washinoton, April 18.—It is asserted confidently to-day among some persons that Minister Phelps is to be nominated for the chief justiceship. It is
aaid that the president haa had Minister Phelps' name under consideration
only dsnng the lut week. A few days
ago Senator Gray seemed most likely
get the nomination, but ths president
is said to have come to the conclusion
that the disparity of years between
Mr. Gray and the associate justices was
too great, Mr. Gray being only 48,
younger by 20 years than moat of the
supreme bench judges. Mr. Phelps is
671 those who assert that ho will be
nominated say that tho nomination
will be sent to the senate very soon.
THI BACONIAN THEORY.
Lonuon, Apl. 18.—Most of the
newspapers are inclined to follow a
humorous view in noting Mr. Ignatius
Donnelly's lecture on his Baconian
Cryptogram, which he delivered last
evening. None of them pretend to
criticise the lecture seriously, or to
follow the lecturer in his intricate explanation of his discovery. Two or
three papers, however, compliment
Mr. Donnelly on his oratorical abilities, and ail express willingness to
await the appearance of his book before passing judgment on the valuo of
his theories.
FAVORING  BOVLANOEU.
London, Apl. 18.—Despatches from
St Petersburg indicate that the course
of General Boulanger and the development of Boulangerism throughout
France is being closely watched by the
court party, who openly express the
hopo that principles represented by
tho ex-war minister may become dominant.
NOT A CONVERT.
London, Apr. 18.—Chamberlain in
a speech at Birmingham thia evening
ridiculed the Gladstonian notion that
his sojourn in America had partly
converted him to the ox -premier s policy. Ho had, he said, found very few
persons indeed in America who approved of Gladstone's policy. If American democracy had to deal with tho
Irish question they would make short
work cf the monstrous pretensions of
the leaguo and not allow tho sacred
name of liberty to be prostituted to
the purpose ol anarchy nnri crime.
Americans allow no sentimental considerations whatsoever in stand in the
way of the laws made by tliu majority
of tho country.
OONDEMNKll AND SOLD.
San Franoisco, April 18.—A despatch received from Loudon a few day.
ago that the British solioonor L. Hm!
lotte. from Halifax for Victoria, had
boon abandoned, is aiiiiouncod in another despatch to dsy to be incorrect.
The schooner hns been condemned aud

THE   EMPEROR'S   CONDITION    CRITICAL.
Berlin, April 10.—The Emperor

his condition was regarded as extremely critical. The physicians are satiiliod

poisoning. According to trustworthy
information the gravest fears of a
speedy fatal ond is apprehonded from
tlie present condition. It" is '-thought
death will occur within a week. Ho is
ver}* week this morning. The fever
has lessened slightly.
THE QUEEN DISAPPROVES.
London, April 10.—It is rumored
Lord Salisbury has informed the German foreign office that Queen Viotoria
disapproves of the proposed marriage
of Princess Viotoria to Prinoe Alexander. -
E&
ANOTHER BRIWERf STBIBJ.
Cincinnati, April 19.—A circular
was issued by tbe brewers hut night;
refusing to recognise the union in any
way and agreeing to stand by tha boycotted brewery firms, The oircular
was ordered to be distributed in every
brewery. It reached the men in four
establishments before they quit work.
None ofthe men in these breweries
returned to work this morning. The
strike throws 2000 men out of work.
A BAD INDIAN AOENT.
Washinoton, April 19.—Delegate
Voorheea, of Washington Territory, today filed with the committee on Indian
affairs charges against Indian Agent
Bella at Puyallup agency. It is alleged
*S^S§>- td^ndL^fm^rtlo^
residents and aliens, snd assigned them
lands. He has kept the agency school
full of children by dragging pupils
from the surroundinz country and en*
rolling them as soholars. He does this
in order to make it appear that the
school is flourishing, and to procure
large allowances of money for it. The
charges will be investigated.
MORE DESPOTISM.
St. Petersboro, April io!—An in-
i'unction has just been issued to tha
lusaian press enjoining papers under
pain of severe punishment not to publish one word in disparagement of tht
German Crown Prinoe William.

Tkara-Iar Evenlai. April is,
A few dajS;»go wc referred to the
probability of the construction of the
Westminster Southern Railway and
the improvement of Fraser River
this year. These nre two of the
most important mutters now (rngag-
ing theratte,ntiou of the peoplo of
this oity nnd district. Wo are of
opinion that the improvement of
the Fraser is even moro important
than the railway. It is to be feared,
however, that many of our people
aro not-suiliciently alive to the need
of prompt action. It is not often
that large enterprises aro carried out
without earnest work on tho part of
those whose interests they aro calculated to promote; and if tho people of this oity and district content
themselves with sitting still and
waiting for events to adjust themselves, they may wait long enough.
The city has sent a delegate to Ottawa to promote river improvement,
but we think the matter is one of
such serious concern that no steps
should lie neglected that might tend
to hasten it forward. It is just
possible the government may decline
to place the additional 050,000 in
this year's estimates, and it may be
necessary for this oity to consider
what other resources it has for obtaining the amount required. It
has beon suggested that a meeting
of citizens should be called to dis
cuss the situation and determine
what oourse will be best to tako under the circumstances. If a sufficient appropriation is refused by
the government, there ought to be
no difficulty in obtaining credit
enough to oarry out the project, nnd
the government would scarcely refuse to assume the responsibility of
guaranteeing our bonds. Tlie present season ought not to be allowed
to puss until theso important works
have been completed. Let the
citizens wake up to their interests.
The Victoria Times rushes to the
rescue of free schools which, it professes to believe, arc seriously
threatened by the proposal to permit the imposition of fees upon
those attending high schools. Our
cotemporary shuts his oyes conveniently to the clear distinction
between a public school and n high
school education. That our public
schools ought to be free, we think
no person will deny, but we are of
opinion that a great majority of the
people of this province are opposed
to high schools being made freo at
the public expense. If this is not
the case, the people in each school
district have the matter entirely in
their own hands. The clause relating to fees is permissive—not
compulsory. If the peoplo of Victoria do not deem it proper to collect high school fees, they can make
the school free; but they ought to
pay the cost of maintaining tliem.
Our objection to the proposed amendment is not the option it gives for
the imposition of high school fees,
but the fact that certain municipalities are required to contribute an
extra tax for goneral school purposes, while they are taxed exqually
with all other municipalities for the
maintenance of education throughout the province. It has beon intimated that this extra tax is res'*
for the, benefit of tho high schools;
but if: this is the intention we are
puzzled beyond measure to understand **hy the bill does not say so.
Let the government require all
municipalities where high sohools
exist to pay a certain portion of the
cost of their maintenance and give
them the privilege of imposing mod
crate fees, and we shall at once
withdraw all opposition to the bill,
Thk Columbian has always opposed
free high schools; and we believe
these schools would nevor have been
made free but for the influence of
the people of Victoria who seek to
maintain their high school at the
public expense. The Titties might
just as well advocate the establishment of provincial colleges where
students oould be graduated at the
publio expense. The high school
and the college are both conducted
in the interests of higher education:
why doea our cotemporary draw the
line between theml We draw the
line at public schools, which ought
to be free under all circumstances.
A common school education iB necessary to the intelligence of the
state: when one carries the system
of free education beyond that, where
is it to stop) The Ontario school
system, of which a great deal has
been said in these discussions, does
not provide for free high schools.
In that prouince the high schools
receive government grants in proportion to tho work they perform,
and Hm municipalities are required
to provide for all expenses of their
maintenance beyond these grants.
It is optional with the trustees
whether these schools shall be free
or not; but if they are free, the
municipality is bound to pay the
cost of carrying them on. Wc sincerely regret that the government
has not applied olause 10 of the
amendment to high schools only.
If thii hsd'been done the question
would have been plaood on a fair
and equitable basis, and the unjust
discrinsination which renders the
present proposal so distasteful to n
large portion of the country would
have been avoided. It would then
n im ■ ■
CWMwC^^'Pi^-*^^
rest with each municipality to determine whether it should have a
high school or not, and whether that
school should be free or subjuct to
tuition fees. We are glad to see
■yhat the govern|iDnt has so far re-
ceiled as Lo suspend tho operation .of
clause 10 in Westminster, Vancouver and Nanaimo for a yoar; for we
hope beforo that period has expired tho whole.matter will be placed
upon a different basis.
CORRESPONDENCE.
Cruelly to AnlniuR
Editor Columbian.—I should like
to oak through the columns of your
valuablo paper if thero is a Bociety for
the prevention of cruelty to animate in
Westminster. In.Surrey I have known
of several cases demanding the direct
interference of such a society, and I
am informed that throughout the country inhuman treatment of animals is a
common occurrence. And how ofton
children are abused and neglected, ton!
and this socioty is supposed to detect
and punish all such unnatural conduct
on the.part of guardians or ethers. ■ If
a society has not yet been organized,
will not somo of our oarnest, philanthropic men and women titko tliis important matter in hand, and let us
have an organization that will he a terror to all who are guilty of practicing
cruelty. I think it is tho duty of parents and teachers to instil inlo tho
mindB of children sucli humane principles as will prevent them from taking
pleasure in inflicting pain upon any
living creature. Kindness to the lower animals will surely tend to make
one considerate of tho feelings of both
man and beast.—Yours &c.,
 E. A. (!.
A lady from Syracuse writes: "Kor
about seven years before taking Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and
Dyspeptic Cure, I suffered from a complaint very prevalent with our sex. I
was unable to walk any distance or stand
on my feet for more than a few minutes
at a time without feeling exhausted, but
now I am thankful to say I can walk
two miles without feeling tho least inconvenience." Kor Female Complaints
it haa no equal.
Your Children
Are constantly exposed to danger from
Colds, Whooping Cough, Croup, and
diseases peculiar to the throat and
lungs. For such ailments, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral, promptly administered, affords speedy relief and cure.
As a remedy for Whooping Cough,
with which many of our children were
afflicted, wo used, during the past winter, with much satisfaction, Ayer'a
Cherry Pectoral. For tliis affection, we
consider this preparation tho most efficacious of aU tlie medicines which have
come to our knowledge.—Mary Park-
hunt, Preceptress, Home for Little
Wanderers, Doncastcr, Aid.
My children have been peculiarly subject to attacks of Croup, aud I failed to
find any effective remedy until I commenced administering Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral, This preparation relieves the
difficulty of breathing and invariably
cures the complaint. —David Q. StarkB,
Chatham, Columbia Co., N. Y.
I have used Ayor's Cherry Pectoral
in my family im- many years, and
have found it e;*peeially valuable in
Whooping Cough. This medicine allays
all irritation, prevents inflammation from
extending to tlio lungs, and quickly subdues anv tendency to Lung Complaint.
-J. B. Wellington, Plalnviile. Midi.
I find no medicino so effective, for

j no such thing in the world as all givo

hu rest.   When tho ladies who rule so-
iety open their houses to tho crowd out-
'  they do not open them to social pau*-

csirable, and who are destitute of the
irrent coin.   Why-shonld thoy? The

ontinently squashed, find sho wonld

Ucauty, too, of an extraordinary quid-
y sheds so much lustre over the defac-
d scutcheon—or tho blank whero a

Greer stook ia going up. The legislative committee appointed to consider
hi* land claims lias reported recom
mending that a crown grant ba issued,
ln addition to this, Mr. Bolo has also
added a clause to the land net under
which, it is believed, Greer's claims
will be materially strengthened. Altogether it ia a very singular case; and
in view of the report of the ohief justico on the Greer title ono begins to
doubt how far this sort of thing mny
be carried.

The Hope Excitement.
Mr. Goorgo Robertson, of the str.
Adelaide, returned from Hope yesterday afternoon and brings news which
confirms the first reports of the gold
excitement. Very few of the peoplo
of Hope held mining licenses, but no
timo was lost in telegraphing for them
after the discovery was made. Some
pieces of the quartz were pounded up
and panned, giving a result highly satisfactory and even better than whs anticipated. One small piece of quart?,
shows thirty colors, und it wns estimated it would pan out $30 to tho ton,
while other tests showed $00 to the
ton. Excitement in and ;about the
littlo village of Hope is running very
high, and groat things are confidently
expected from this unexpected discovery.
Xorihern Notes.
Tho schr. .Northern Light, Captain
Mayne, fromSeymonr Narrow, arrived
in port last night. Tho captain reports
everything brisk up the coast, and
many settlers ure taking up land in anticipation of tho extension of the E. &
N. Railway to Seymour Narrows.
Victorians, especially, are corralling all
available farming land?, and not a few
are traversing thu country in search of
coul. Tho Yucatnw Indians and some
settlers are having troublo over a piece
of land which is claimed by both, and
bad blood is likely to arise from the
dispute unless one or the other gives
way. The land in question iB claimed
by the chief of tho Yucataws, although
it is not inoluded in the reservation,
and the settlers are bound to have it
as the Indians have no legal claim to
hold it by. The logging camps are
working full blast, and turning out
immense quantities of timber daily.

Mackenzie Basin Committee.
Before the great Mackenzie basin
committee Mr. Anderson gave exact,
information regarding the nnviyablo
portion of the Liard river and its
branches, also the cllnidte and the productions of this region. Ho said that
this river and the great Mackenzie were
open on the 9th May aud were still
open ou the 5th October, with no appearance of ice, thus showing navigation in tliis fur northern region to have
been open for five months—a fact of
great importance should it be shown
that sea-going vessels can reach the
mouth of tho Mackenzie through Behring straits. It may be explained that
the Liard runs into the Mackenzie
river at Fort Simpson in latitude (iti'.'
This fine river whei o it issues from tho
Rncky mountains is formed by two
British Columbia rivers, tho Dease and
Francis rivers in latitude HV, thence
southeasterly there is canoo navigation
through eight degrees of longtitudo ;
then it flows almost due north for 3.V
degrees of latitude to the Mackenzie",
with navigation suited for a stern-
wheel steamer.      _
A Celestial Suicide*.
This no/ning word wrs brought
to Mr. Moresby that a dead
Chinaman had been found hanging
from a tree on the property of Phillip
Parsons, a farmer residing on the
Hastings road, about three milea from
this city. Mr. Moresby immediately
went to Parsons' farm und there found
the Chinaman hanging to tho branch
of a tree, at a short distance from a
cabin in which ho had resided. On a
bench outside the cabin was found $5
in cash and a nolo written iu Chinese
characters. The note intimated that
the whito man ho workod for owed
him $20, and it was his wish his friends
should collect it. Mr. Moresby roturned to tho city and informed Cur-
oner Ferris of the alliiir, and tlio latter, after proceeding to the spot and
viewing the body, ordered that it bo
conveyed to the city. Mr. Ferris decided an inquest was necessary, and a
jury was einpannellod with Mr, II.
Mathers, J. P., as foreman. At two
o'clock the inquest opened. From the
evidence adduced it appears the Chinaman, whose namo was Hi Yak, had
worked at different times for Parsons,
for which services he had been paid in
money and iu provisions. Lust August
Hi took a contract to clear a small
piece of land, and was to receive $20
for so doing when tho job was completed. He worked a fow days on tho
contract and then stopped, saying he
would do no more, but at different
times since then he has put in several
days' work on the contract, which ia
now about one-fourth completed,
About the beginning of this month
Parsons hired Hi to work for him at
the rate of $10 per month and board.
Yesterday afternoon Parsons discharged tho Chinaman and paid him
$5, the amount due for 10 days'
work, Hi asked if he wae to bo paid
the $20 for clearing the ground and
Parsons replied in the negative, as the
work had not been completed. This
was all that passed between them and
he was ordered to leavo the cabin in
the morning. This morning the Chinaman was found hanging tu the limb of
a tree. When the evidence was completed, the jury, uf tor a fow minutes
deliberation, returned a verdict of
suicide.
Another More Broken Into.
At an early hour this morning the
store of Mr. Micheal Hayes, on Front
street,   wai broken into by thsivflB
and robbed of h quantity of
gooda nnd cash, They clfcoied
an entrance by Gutting away
part of the window sash, in a window
fronting oh the sido passage, nnd, after removing the glusB, drew out a nail
used to prevent the window from boing
opened from the outside. With this
accomplished it was an.easy matter to
slide the window back and enter the
Btore. The till was opened and about
$3 in ten cont pieces taken from it.
It is impossible for Mr. Hayes to correctly estimate his loss, but among the
items missing nro a caddie and a hnlf
of tobacco, a dozen packages of t-buc-
co, two jars of con feet ion oiy and a few
smaller things. Tho theives also attempted, by cutting awny the sash,
to ontor that part of the building
used us a sleeping apartment by Mr.
Hayes, but must havo discoveied it was
occupied and directed their whole attention to tho other store. The police
aro investigating the caso, but tho robbers having loft no clue, it is doubtful
if thoy will be apprehended until Mr,
Hogbon's private dotective takes the
matter in hand. These robberies ure
becoming too frequent, and some decisive steps will have to be taken to
break up the band of petty thieves
which has been operating bo successfully for tho past few months.

Late Despatches.
AN OUNOXIOUS PROPOSAL   TO   PltO-
TESTANTS.
Montreal, Apl. 14.—A joint meeting of tho Protestant ministerial association and Evangelical alliance is
called for Monday, tho 10th, to protest ngainst the proposal to erect a
statue of tho Virgin Mary on tho
Mountain. Feeling runs very high on
the question, and it is feared should
the proposal bo carried out trouble
will ensue. Leading Catholic priests
havo been interviewed on the subject,
many of them Baying it was better
to abandon the project than to have a
religious war. Senator Trudel, who
first suggested the idea, Bays that each
nationality should erect a monument
on the three summits of. the mountain
and thus overcome the difficulty.
RUSSIA   AND 0 HUM ANY.
8t. Petersburg, April 15.— The
Journal de 8t, Petersburg, referring
to the proposed marriage of Prince
Alexander, of Battenberg, and Princess
Victoria, tho daughter of the German
Emperor, says: "Facts cannot be
effaced from tho pages of history.
Every one knows tho cause which
alienated Prince Alexander from his
august protector, and everyone remembers tho late Emperor William's condemnation of the Prinee's actions,
whioh were not only ungrateful, but
compromised tho peace of Europe.
Who knows but "thub,itho. placing of
Prince Alexandor in a new high position might rekindle thoughts of hiB return among tho leaders of the Bulgarian revolution, and, notwithstanding
the assurances to tho contrary, defer
tho establishment of tranquility in the
Balkans, and also pacific relations between the powers ? Tho question is
how to reconcile these possible consequences with Prince Uisniarcn's programme and Emperor Frederick's pacific views and friendly assurances.
We are certain that the German policy
will know how to weigh the consequences and prevent possible dangers
to the relations between Russia nr.d
Germany and to tho general peace."
FLOQUET COUNSELS PEACE.
pAnis, April 15.—Premier Floquet
presided at tho annual meeting of the
commercial union in tho Trocndcr.
Six thousand persons were presont.
M. Floquet, lu a speech, declared that
tho sole guarantee for civil liberty was
political liberty. Republican France
needed neither a protector in time of
pence, nor a dictator in time of war, if
tho necessity of defending hur honor
forced her to tako up arms. "We want
no one," he continued, "because now
id pi'iico wo have Republican institutions after 17 years of exertion, strifo
and pomuverance, while in the event
of war wo have skilled uud valiant gen-
orals who loyally obey tho public pow-
ors, and a citizen army, iho flower of
the nation, for which you all feel solicitude and which enjoys such popularity among yoa, lt is a republic of
liberty which has decided to celebrate
tho centenary of 1730 by holding a
universal exhibition. In order to make
the festival complete, let concord be
restored among us, aud let us remain
a people master of its own destinies,"
Tho speech was greeted with a triple
round of applause.

Montreal, April IU.—A mhgnifi-
ccnt gift is in storo for Montreal iu
which Winnipcgwill participate. Some
months ago Sir Donald A. Smith donated $120,000 for the purpose of endowing a college for tho higher education of womon. It is now rumored
that tho generous donor, proposes to
increase his former gift to the magnificent sum of $250,000, and an aot to
incorporate the college will bo asked
this session under the title of the Royal
Victoria College. The college will be
located in Montreal, but the special object of the latest addition to the endowment fund is the establishing of a
preparatory school in Winnipeg, and
at some other point or points in Manitoba and territories.
Mrs. Celeste Coon, Syracuse, N. Y.,
writes: "For years I could not eat many
kinds of food without producing a burning, excruciating pain in my stomach. I
took Pnnnelee's Pills according to directions undor the head of 'Dyspepsia or
Indigestion.' One box entirely cured
me. I can now eat nnything I choose,
without distressing mo in the least."
These Pills do not cause pain or griping,
and should be used when a cathartic is
required.
