Tlie Hospital.
Now thai Mr. Smith has secured lhe $i,-
ooo grant for the hospital building, it behoves the citizens of Lillooel !o be up aiul
he doing. Why this apathy in connection
with it? There has been an enormous a-
moiinl of kicking all summer about the delay in procuring lhe grant and making .
commencement in lhe erection; the Prospector had a full share of the kicking because
it considered, as it does yet, that the sooner the institution is built the better; now,
hnwevcr, there is no ground for complaint;
the people have got what ihey askt'd lor,
and the comp'etidn of lhe matter rests entirely in their hands,
A public meeting should ho called at once
and if there are three men in lown who are
willing to ael on lhe committee demanded
by the government, let them be appointed
at   once.    Delays   are  always dangerous.
The terms of lhe government may not be
as desirable as they might be; we do nol
consider thai ihey arc; but lei u- lake whal
we can gel now and hope lor more iu the
future. It will le an immense advantage
to have the building  if nolhing  else.
Th*" Prospector will awail with great in-
iere.1 ihe action of the citizens on this question; il looks very much a. if, at lhe time
uf writing, there wasn't going lo be any action, in which case some vigorous language
is apt to emanate from our editorial sanctum
. For the present we will content ourselves
with Satan's concluding words when addres-
ling his fallen angels: 'Awake, arise, or
be forever fallen.'
The origin of Thanksgiving Day on Ihis
Continent is thus described: When the New
England colonies were first planted, the settlers endured many privations and difficulties.
Being piously disposed, they fasted and pray,
ed. But meditation* kept llieir minds gloomy
aad discontented, and made them disposed
even lo return to Iheir fatherland with all
ils persecutions. At length, when it was
proposed again to hold a day of fasting and
prayer, a common sense old colonist rose and
remarked thai Ihey had brooded long enough
over their misfortunes, and it was lime they
considered their blessings. Their harvests
were increasing, the rivers were full at Hill,
the words were full of game, the air was
iweet, and abeve t'i Ihey possessed the fiee-
Join for which they had so long sought, and
therefore he would amend the resolution lor
a day of fasting and prayer, and propose a
day of thanksgiving Instead.
However the custom originated, Thanksgiving Day has come lo stay. The Canadian
Gorem-lent this year have deemed it best to
proclaim thc .ante day fur public thanksgiving in Canada that is observed by our An:
erican cousins. Their almanacks, stationers'
calenders, and diaries put lhc lust Thursda)
iii November in red letters as a holiday. The
written .talute has become established custom.
Thanksgiving Day is always associated with
thoughts of plentiful harvests, and rightly «o.
Yet it is clear lhat tlie promoters ol this day
took a wide outlook and reviewed with thanksgiving the many benefits of life in the New
World, And is not this the best way lo regard thc day. We can rejoice in- the fact ol
a bountiful harvest. The " North-West Farmer"' ol Nov, 20 shows that little damage
has come to our crops from rain, frost, hail,
grasshoppers and oth?r enemies. Already
! all records of grain shipments from thc Wesl
have been broken and still they shi|
In our own Province, immense deposits of
coal have been found to give comfort in our
homes and to drive our great machinery at
our iron, copper and gold mines. Reflection
on these will have formed good sauce for lhe
Thanksgiving Dinner.
We have reason for continued thankfulness
ill the fact of a giowiug reverence for order-
!y government and love for law.
And ought we noi to be thankful that wc
are citizens of the Wesl? It ha*: heen .aid
lhat " the New World has advantages over
the Old, it bting able with all the lessons of
the past to start afresh". So this Western
l'ro\ incc has the history of the older Provinces
to guide it. We can copy their excellencies
and avoid their mistakes. Ihlt our position-
geographic, topographic and political- will
lead us along new trails, and lo do things
for which there arc no precedents In the history of lhe older I'rov nces. This truth is a
sale guide for all in such crises, namely—
" What is morally right can never be politi
cally wrong."

Some lime acfo tlie Prospector received! n
communication from Mr. Hill, engineer for
the Miiurs Exploration Co., containing a statement cf the assays t.iken in the lowest tunnel un the Lorne main vein. Mr. Hill requested that the communication he puhlish-
ed, This we did not do for several reasons.
Mr*Hiil had made previous reports on the
Lorne group, .ill of a highly cummendatoty
character; ihe prospectus issued by his company on taking hold of the property would
lead one to infer tint tiiere neter had heen

Statements in the report uf the Minister of

Finding thnt the Prospector would not he
bull-dozed into making itself the vehicle for
his spleen, Mr. Hill sent out, broadcast,
type-written copies uf the letter to thu Prospector, the majority of these being sent after
the bond   had  expired.
We doubt if a parallel to this action can
be found in the history of mining; that any
company could be mean enough to deliberately try to ruin the reputation of a claim aftar
it; connection with it had entirely ceased, we
would not have believed. But Mr. Hilt is
greatly mistaken if ha thinks he in shaking

In a form *r d.sorip ion of the Horse
fly, published in the Prospector s in e

mark tlmt tlie rich deposits at liobeon's
and Ward's must havt* cume (rout BOine
locality higher up Ihe river. Recent
di-covi-ries have horn out the truth o:
tlii. statement, as the upper Ilorstfiy
has 1 ecu shown to lie the place whence
Ilic gold luing lak.u out sixty miles
lower down has come. The formation
of the lower Horeefly being of granite
and slate, which foi mution is not lhe
natural depositing place for gold hearing gravel, the inference that the gold
came from another section appears to
have heen justified.
The Drucker com puny have a very
lame I'umb r of leasej on lhe upper
Ilorsrrlv, dour which Mr. Williams has
seen one ounce a d.iy per box taken out
'to Shovel in.'
Tuo only creeks which have as y»t
been prospected are the Empire and
Eureka Creeks. The district, however,
comprises an area of over 5,000 square
miles, and is intersected hy numerous
creeks, which, on the arrival of spring,
will make excellent ground for working. These creeks are shallow and the
majority of thein will probably only
last one s*'.son.
As yet. according lo Mr. Williams,
nothing has been f.und to rave ahout,
but every indication points io lhe conclusion that there is a very rich body
of gravel somewhere; in short, it uiusl
be there.
Mr. Williams' advice to prospectors
is: Djn't goin till spring, or at any
rate till Into iu tl.e winter when the
snow will have become hard enou.h lo
pull sleighs over. As the country i.
very thickly timbered and underbrush*

Although there will undoubtedly be

are made by the lew prospectors now

About a mile front Princeton, N.
.1.. there is a skating pond. Ono winter day, when the ice was very thin,
a farmer living near by warned the
young meu of the danger of skating
at that time. They all took the
warning except one young man. He,
in the spirit of bravado, said, "Boys,
one round more." He struck out on
his skates, the ice broke, and his
lifeless body was brought up. And
in all matters of temptation and allurement it is not a prolongation
that is proposetl, but only just one
mure indulgence, just one more sin.
Then comes the fatality. Alas for the

Our libraries are adorned with elegant literature addressed to young
men. pointing out to them all the
dangers nnd perils of life. Complete
maps of the voyage of life — the
shoals, the rocks, the quicksands.
Hut suppose a young man is already
shipwrecked, suppose he is already
off the track, suppose he has already
gone astray — how can he be got
bnck? That is a question lhat remains unanswered, antl amid all the
books of the libraries I lind not one
word on that subject. To that class
of persons I this day address myself.

Moral Gravitation Overcome.
Years ago. and while yet Albert
Barnes was living. I preached in his
pulpit one night to the young men
of Philadelphia. In the opening of
my discourse, I said, "O Lord, give
mo one soul to-night!" At the close
of tho service Mr. Harnes introduced
a young man. saying, "This is I he
young man you prayed for." _»ut I
sec now it was a too limited prayer.
I offer no such prayer to-day. it
must take in a wider sweep. "Lord,
give us all those souls to-day for
happiness and heaven!"
So far as Ood may help me I propose tc show what are the obstacles
to your return and" then how you are
to surmount these obstacles. The
first difficulty in the way of your return is tho force of moral gravitation. Just as there is a natural law
which brings down to earth anything you throw into the air, so
there is a corresponding moral gravitation. 1 never shall forget a prayer I heard a young man make in the
Young Men's Christian Association
of New York. With trembling voice
nnd streaming eyes he said: "0 Ood,
thou knowest how easy it is for me
to do wrong nnd how hard it is for
me to do right! Ood help me!"
That mnn knows not his own heart
who has never felt thc power of moral gravitation.
Tn your boyhood you had gootl associates and bad associates. Which
most Impressed you? During the last
few years you have heard pure anecdotes antl impure anecdotes, Which
tho easiest stuck to your memory?
You hnve hnd good habits and bad
habits. To which ditl your soul
more easily yield? But Unit moral
gravitation may be resisted. .lust ns
you may pick up anything from the
earth and hold It In your hnnd toward henven, just so, by the power
of Ood's grace, a fallen soul may
be liftetl toward peace, toward pardon, toward salvation. The force of
moral gravitation is in every one of
us. but also power in Ood's grace
to overcome that force.
The next thing in the wny of your
return is the power of evil habit. I
know there are those who say it is
very easy for them to give up evil
li»b_l.it. . I cannot believe them Here
is.a man given to intoxication, who
knows it is disgracing his family, destroying his property and ruining
him hotly, mind and soul. If tbat
mnn. being un iulelligenf mnn and
loving his family, could easily giv,
up lhat habit , would he nol do so?
The fact   thai   he docs nol   give It tlfi
proves thai  ii l« hard to give it up.

lo .:■ ul   Habit.
Suppose a man of five or ten or
twenty years of ovildoing resolves
to do right. Why. all thc forces of
darkness nre allied against him. He
gets down on his knees at midnight
and cries. "Ood help me !" He
bites his lip. He grinds his teeth.
He clinches his fist in n determination to keep to liis purpose. He
dare not look at the bottles in the
window of a wine store. It is one
long, bitter, exhaustive, hand to
hand light with inflamed, tantalizing
merciless habit. When ho thinks he
is entirely free the old inclination
pounces upon him like a pack of
hounds, all their muzzles tearing
away at the flanks of one poor reindeer.
I hnve niso to say if a man wants
to return from evil practices society
repulses him. The prodigal, wishing to return, tries to take some
professor of religion by the hand.
The professor of religion looks ut
him, looks at the faded apparel,
and the marks of dissipation, and
instead of giving him a firm grip of
the hand ofTers him the tip end of
the longer lingers of the left hand,
which is equal to striking a man in
the face. Oh, how few Christian
people understand how much gospel
there i.s in a gootl, honest handshaking ! .Sometimes when you have
felt the need of encouragement and
some Christian man has taken you
heartily by the hand have you not
felt thrilling through every fibre of
your body, m*iid and soul an encouragement that was just what you
needed ?
I.lit Up the Fallen.
Tha prodigal, wishing to get into
good society, enters a prayer meeting. Some gootl man without much
sense greets him b.v saying : "Why
are you hero ? You are about tho
last person 1 expected to see in a
prayer meeting. Well, tlie dying
thief was saved, and there is hope
for you." You do not know anything about this, unless that you
have learned that when a man tries
to return from evil courses of conduct he runs against repulsions innumerable,
How those dainty, fastidious
Christians in all our churches are
going lo get into heaven 1 tlo not
know unless they have an especial
train of cars cushioned and upholstered, ench one a car to himself. They
cannot go wilh the great herd of
publicans and sinners. O ye who
curl your lip of scorn on the fallen.
I tell you plainly that if you had
been surrounded by Ihe same influences instead of silling to-day amid
the cultured and refined antl the
Christian you might have been ti
crouching wretch in stable or ditch
covered wilh tilth anal abomination !
It is not because we are naturally
nny belter, but because' the mercy
of Ootl has protected us. Those
that are brought up in Christian circles nnd watched by Christian parentage should not be so hard on the
1 think also that men are often
hindered from ret lulling by the fact
that churches are anxious about
their membership, loo anxious about
their denominations, and ihey rush
out when they see a man about to
give up sin and return to Ood and
ask him how he is going to be baptized.whether by sprinkling or immersion, and whal kind of a church
he is going to join. It is a. poor
time to talk about Presbyterian catechism and Episcopal liturgies nnd
Methodist, love [easts and Baptist
immersions when a mnn is about to
come out of the darkness of sin into the glorious light of the gospel.

Now. I hnve shown* you thoso obstacles because I want you to understand I know all lhe difficulties
in the way. But I am now going
to tell you how Hannibal may scale
the Alps nntl how thc shackles may
be unrivetotl and how the pnths of
virtue forsaken may be regained.
First of all. throw yourself on Ood.
Oo to him frankly antl earnestly and
tell him these habits you have and
nsk him if there is any help in nil
the resources of omnipotent love to
give it to you. Bo not, go on with
a long rigmarole, which some people
call prayer, made up of ohs anil
ahs and forever ami forever aniens.
Go to Ood and cry for help.
Then, also, 1 counsel you, if you
want to get back, quit all your bail
associates. One unholy intimacy will
nil your soul with moral distemper.

This hour the door of mercy
swings wide open. Hesitate not a
moment. In many a hesitation is
the loss of all. At the corner of
a street 1 saw. a tragedy. A young
man evidently doubted as to which
direction he hud better take. His
hat was lifted high enough so you
could soo he had an intelligent forehead. He had a stout client end a
robust       development. Splendid
young man ! Cultured young man!
Why ditl he stop there while so many
wero going up and down ? The fact
is that every young man hus a txood
ungel nntl a bail nngel contending
for the mastery of his spirit, and
there was a gootl angel ami a bad
ungel struggling witli that young
man's soul at the corner nf the
street. "Come along with me."
said the gootl angel: "I will take
you home. 1 will spread my wings
over your  pillow. I  will   lovingly
escort you all through lifo under supernatural protection. I will bless
every cup you drink out of. every
couch you rest on. overy doorway
you enter. I will consecrate your
tears when you weep, your sweat
when you toil, ami at the last I
will hand over your grave into the
hand of the bright angel of a Christian resurrection. I huvo been sent
of thc Lord to be your guardian
spirit. Come wilh mo." saitl the
good angel in a voice of unearthly
symphony. It was music like that
which drops from a lute of heaven
when a seraph  breathes on il
"Oh, no," said tlii' bail angel;
"come with mc. I have something
better to offer. The wines 1 pour
are from chalices of bewitching carousal. The dance I lead is over
floors tessellated with unrestrained
indulgence, There is no Ood to
frown on the temples of sin where I
worship. The skies nre Italian.
The paths I tread are througli meadows daisied nntl primroscd. Come
with me."
Alien'* of Destiny.
The young man hesitated at a
timo when hesitation was ruin, and
the bail angel smote the good angel
until it departed, spreading wings
through the starlight, upward and
away until a door swung open in the
sky. antl forcvet the wines vanished.
That, was the turning point in the
young man's history, for. the good
ungel flown, be hesitated no lower,
but atarted on a pathway which hi
beautiful at tbe openine'. bul blasted
at tile last. Tlie bail angel loll thc
way through gate after gate, and at
each gate the roatl became rougher
and the sky more lurid, and. what
was peculiar, as tho gate slammed
shut it enme to with a jar that Indicated it would never open. Past
each portal there wns a Printline- of
locks nntl a shoving of bolls, and
the scenery on ench side of the roatl
changed from gardens to deserts,
nnd the J.unc nir became a cutting
December blast, antl the bright wings
of the bad angel turned to sackcloth
and the fountains that at the start
hnd tossed with wine poured forth
bubbling tears nf foaming blood.
And on the riglil side of the road
there wns a serpent, und the mnn
said to Ihe bail angel. "What is
that serpent ? " Anil the answer
was, "Thai is lhe serpent of Btlnir-
ing remorse." On the left side of
the rond I here was a lion, und the
man asked Ihe bail angel, "What Is
that lion?" Tlie answer was, "That
is the lion of all devouring despair."
A vulture flew through the sky and
the mnn asked the bad angel, "What
is that jMilture ?" The answer was
"That i.s the vulture wailing for
the  carcases   of  the  slain."
And then the man said to the bad
nngel : "What tines all this menu ? I
trusted in what you said at the
street corner ; 1 trusted it nil. Why
have you thus deceived me?" Then

The Remarkably Shrewd Scotchman Who
Accompanies the Duke.
Sir Donald Mackenzie Wallace, K.
C. I. E., who has accompanied His
Koyal Highness the Duke of Cornwall and York on his Imperial journey, had a somewhat similar experience in 181)0-1, when during a trip
through India lie was attached to
the personal stall of thc present
Czar, then the heir-apparent to the
throne of Russia. Tlie intimacy
then established may have had more
to do with the introduction of Sir
Donald's "Russia" into the schools
of that country than did the whirligig of time referred to in the story
below, for the intimate knowledge of
India gained as private secretary to
the Viceroy, during the terms of
both Lord Dufferin and Lord Lans-
downe, must have made Sir Donald
an excellent guide to the Russian
Prince. Knighted in the Jubilee
year of 1887, Sir Donald was, on
returning from India, for nine years
Director of the Foreign Department
of The Times, a post from which he
resigned last year. Before going to
India he had represented Tlie Times
in the various continental capitals
from 1863 to 1884, during which
time he wrote his two important
books, "Russia" and "Egypt and
tho Egyptian Question." His chief
recreation is said to be a change of
Writing of tho tact shown by the
Duke of Cornwall in his present
journey, Tho Candid Friend snys:
"Perhaps he owes much of his success to the fact that ho bus always
had at his elbow as counsellor and
friend ihat remarkably shrewd
Scotchman. whose career has been
one of the mosl, remarkable of modern times. I allude to Sir Donald
Mackenzie Wallace, who bids fair to
become a sort of twentieth century
Stockmar. Sir Donald Wallace first
came into prominence in tho late
seventies, when his book on Russia
took tho town bv storm. It waa,
of course, prohibited in the country
it described, but the whirligig of
time brings its revenges, nnd to-day
it is translated into Russian, and
actually used us a text book in the
higher grade schools. Sir Donnltl
began his career long before this
book was published, and wns favorably known us a philologist and
folklorist years before it ever occurred  to him to go  to  Russia."
The Duke of llnxburghe.
The three aides accompanying His
Royal Highness all gained distinction in the earlier singes of tho
South African wai*. Prince Alexander of Teck was A. D. C. to Bri-
gatlier-Oenerul Mahon, the reliever
of Mafeking. Lord-Orichton was on
the staff of Major-General Brockle-
burst. The Duke of Itoxburghe served ns a member of the composite
regiment of Household Cavalry,
which went nut at the outbreak of
the war. nntl returned nn the same

of the grandest castles in Scotland.
He is a first cousin to the Duke ot
Dog ami Sheep Lawsuit.
Wherever sheep are kept throughout the Province questions arise out
of depredations committed by dogs.
The Penetung Herald reports an interesting lawsuit connected with
this. A farmer whose sheep had
been worried followed the tracks of
the culprit till thoy came to a dwelling. Going into the house, and
meeting with a denial, he asked that
the dog be killed; that if the stomach showed signs of a recent meal of
mutton the owner should pay for
the sheep; if not, the owner of the
sheep should pay for the doc. This
ingenious proposal wus rejected, but
subsequently the dog was found eating the tlead sheep and wns shot.
Hence a lawsuit, in which judgment
was reserved.

The little son of (in Episcopal clergyman of Los Angeles was visiting with
his mother a Canadian city, where the
two attended services nt a certain
church. It is the custom In tlmt church
for the clergyman nnd congregation to
bow In silent prayer for a minute or
two Just before the sermon begins. It
was a new proceeding to the child, for
he was not accustomed to seeing this
done In his father's church, but the
little chap bravely and reverently did
his part.
After the service was over ihe clergyman, one of tho old evangelical school,
who had noticed the reverence nud apparent devotion of the child, spoke to
him and commended his reverence with
bu affectionate pat on lhe head. "It
wns very pleasing," he remarked to a
group of bystanders, "to see this little
fellow so deeply engaged in earnest

The old, wrinkled, dusky nunties of

robber restless as long ns he lives. No

they always live on the sea nnd that,
never having mingled with landsmen,
their type is much purer and more

There are al rut 500 sea gypsies In

the next hour they may be snaring rabbits on a headland miles away.

Pretty Fnir Shots.
In an English paper there appeared
recently the veracious story of two
brothers who lived in the Rocky mountains. They had two rifles, one bullet
and a keg of powder. With this outfit
they managed to kill on nn average
twenty-seven head of buffalo a day.
The way they managed was Ihis: Brother No. 1 would stand on one side of a
buffalo and shoot through It, the bullet
going Into the barrel of ihe rifle of
Brother No. 2, who stood on the other
side. Then Brother No. 2 would fire
through tho next buffalo Into tha rifle
of Brother No. 1, and so ou until the
day's sport was over.
Some one who snw this story has
written to say that he Is acquainted
with a mnn, a cousin, he thinks, of the
two mentioned, who also lived In the
Rocky mountains at one time. He had
one rifle, one bullet and a keg of powder, yet he mnnagod to kill thirty head
of buffalo a day—buffaloes wero plenty
then—and thc way. he did It was this:
He wns not only a champion shot, but
a champion runner, nud when he fired
through a buffalo he would run nrouud
and catch the bullet again to reload
with, aud so on until he exhausted his

"1 have been trying to tigure out how
many words the average man alters in
every twenty-four hours," said a gentleman who had a penchant for peculiar
things, "but I have been unable to reach
any satisfactory conclusion on account of
the different rates of speed at which different persons talk. Of course I have no
reference to the different kinds of words
which mny be found in tbe daily vocabulary uf the average man, hut I'm talking
about the total number of words uttered,
counting repetitious uud ull, during every
twenty-four hours.
"There is the quiet, melancholy gentleman who will nut speak on an average of
500 words a day, and there are uiany
who for one reason or unuther would not
utter anything like this number, On the
other band, there is the conversational
gatling gun, not always a woninu, either,
who will roll off words at a fearful rale
of speed aud whose aggregate for one
day would run up to dizzy heights* Thee
there is the normal talker, who will strike

"But suppose that we figure that the
average person will utter an average of
sixty words every minute. This would
amour.t to 2,400 words for every hour, or
about 57,G00 words for every twenty-four
hours. Of course no person will talk this
much, as the windiest of men and women
would probably break down before they
had talked as much us fifty-seven columns in the average daily newspaper.
The only question is as to how much time
each person puts in talking during eacfc
day. Some men and women are situated
bo that they cannot talk during the day,
except nt mealtime, on account of the
.hnriicter of the work they hnve to do.

for instance, who depend upon talking for
a living, I have figured that thc high
man, probably the traveling man, will
talk live hours out of every twenty-four,
which would give him n total of 12,009
words every day. I have figured that
niost any sort nf man will talk as muck
as ten minutes out of every twenty-four

60(1 words for the day.
"These are the two extremes. I am

runner, and jumper of local renown,
nnd took an active part in all lines
of sport. Today he is forty yee.rs

The intimate friends of this robust
man have known that for the past
ten years he has been a sufferer from
a disease Uiat bullied medical skill,
and that he has lingered between life
and death on many occasions since
he wm first attacked, At the initial
stage of the disease he was taken
with violent, cramps in the left side
of his stomach, and the best skilled
physicians could afford him very litlle relief.   The attacks were of about
two weeks' duration, anei when ho
left his bed he was reduced in flesh
nnd was almost a physical wreck.

in the Kidney," but even after the
diagnosis tho physicians were unable
to effect a permanent, cure. Today
ho is a well man. Ho has found a
remedy that has banished tho disease

remedy is Dodd'a Kidney puis, and
Mr. t'assuiy feels so elated over bin

Bear Sir—1 want you to publish
for tho benefit of others who are suffering as I have suffered 'for years
about how J was cured of Stone in

was unable to get better. Some time

There has been discovered in China
a curious picture, evidently of grent
antiquity, which is supposed to represent Noah's ark resting on the top
of Mount Ararat. As is well known,
the religious literature of almost
overy nation and race contains an
account of a deluge, but a Chinese
manuscript recently unearthed follows very closely to the story recorded iu  the Bible.
The Story of a Young Girl Who Suffered from Headaches, Dizziness
and Fainting .Spoils—Her Health
Became so Bad That Sho Was
Forced  lo Give Up School.
Miss Catherine McLell ,n is a
young lady well known in Oharlobte-
town, P.H.I., an«J greatly esteemed
among her acquaintances. Like so
many other young ladies throughout
the land, Miss McLellnn fell a victim to anaemia, or poorness of
blood, and although several medicines were tried, she found nothing
to help her until she began using Dr.
Williams' Pink I'iils for Pale People.
Miss McLellon tells the story of her
illness ns follows : "I am now 18
years of age, and for a considerable
li e suffered much from anaemia.
My blood had almost turned to water, and I was very weak and pale :
in fact could not undergo the least
exertion. My appetite failed mo ; 1
suffered from headaches; if I stooped
I would become dizzy, and frequent/'
ly I suffered from fainting spells. 1
tried several kinds of medicine and
doctors prescribed for ine, but instead of getting better I was gradually growing weaker, and eventually
had to discontinue going to school.
About this lime I read the testimonial of a girl whose condition was
similar to mine, who had been cured
b.v Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I then
decided to try these pills, and have
every reason to he gratified that 1
did so, as they have completely restored my health. Every one of the
symptoms that had made my life so
miserable have disappeared, and I
am now enjoying ns good health as
nny girl of my age could wish, and
I shall always have a good wonl to
say for   Dr.   Williams'  Pink  Pills.
Miss McLellan further stated Ihal
while she was not desirous of publicity in matters of this kind. _ha
nevertheless felt that her experience,
if known might be the means of
bringing health lo somo other sufferer, and it is this very praiseworthy motive that has induced her
to give the above statement for publication.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills make rich,
red blood, ami Rive tone lo Ibe
nerves. It is because of this that
they bring bright eyes, rosy cheeks
anil light footsteps to trills who
have been weary, pale and listless
and hnd begun to feel that life wns
a burden. Pale and annemic girls
everywhere should Rive these pills
a fair trial, as they are certain to
restore health and strength. Sec
thnt the full name "Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People" is on
the wrapper around every box. Sold
by all dealers, or sent postpaid at
50c a box, or six boxes for $3.50,
