Andrew Carnegie made an offer to Principal Grunt, of Queen's University, Kingston, ihal he would -a-sis't Queen's voiy materially in a financial way if Dr. _rr,n:
would advocate the annexation of Canada
to the United Stales.
Principal Grant, response to this oiler
was characteristic of tht^nian:   .Mating that
he would lather see   Queen's   dead   than    so
prostitute his abilities. Mr, Carnegie, very
properly recognized Dr. Grant's immense
influence ou Canadian pubiic opinion, hut
when he made the aoove proposal to h: 111,
lie 'caught [lie wrong pig Ity the ear.'
Thisaction of Mr. Carnegie will liave the
effect of detracting, iu a great degree, from
the value of lii.i recent very liber.11 gifts to
Canadian instutibns; for it can only he interred that this liberality was the outcome
of a distinct purpose of turning tiie tide oi
popularity strongly towards himself, and
then throwing the wuole.weu.lt of his 'pupal.rity inio an agitation iu favor of annexation.

The members of lhe various British societies in New Vork celebrated King Edward's
both birthday by gathering to a banquet in
tiiat city. In reply lo a toast lo 'General
Kitchener and the troops in Soutn Africa;
ami General Chafes and the iroops in lhe
.hillipines', General Brooks, of the United
States' Aimy, said in part:
'You talk ahout General Kitchener and
his troubles in .South Africa. In time the
English flag will proclaim freedom over all
tile territory of South Africa. General Chaffee and our other brave generals are fighting
the same battle lor God and civilization in
lhe far-away .hillipines against almost insurmountable difficulties.
People who are constantly croaking about
tile delayed ending of the war in S. Africa
would do well to note these words carelully.
Critics are too prone to forget lhe nature of
the difficulties with which Lord Kitchener
has to contend. If Kitchener has not been
able lo bring lhe war lo au end as yet, no
other general of any conn ry could ha\e done

'It Is He That Sitteth Upon the
Circle of the Earth."
The Circle •( H-.»t-.i-. »_.__ Deeds Come
Back—Resolve to Do G»»d—Slander's
Foul Poison—Filial Ingratitude—-God's
M i-hty Memory—The Kternal Circle.
Entrrcd acoordlng to Act of rnrliam.n.of Cnn-
adii. in lhc year 1901. by Wi IliumBaily. of Toronto, at ihi: l.-puuinuu-. of AirriuuiturtL
Washington, Nov. 3.-— In this discourse Dr. Talmoge shows that tho
good or evil we do returns lo bless
or blast us; text, Isaiah xl, 122, "It
is he that sitteth upon the circle of
the earth."
While yet people thought that the
world was Hat and thousands of
years before they found out that it
was round Isaiah, in my text, intimated the shape of it — God sitting
upon the circle of the earth. The
most beautiful figure in all geometry
is the circle. God made the universe
on a plan of the circle.
There are In the natural world
straight lines, angles, parallelograms, diagonals, quadrangles, but
these evidently are not God's favorites. Almost everywhere where you
find him geometrizing you find the
circle dominant, and if not the circle
then the curve, which is a circle that
died young. If it had lived long
enough it would have beeu a full
orb, a periphery. An ellipse is a circle pressed only a little too hard at
the sides.
Giant's causeway in Ireland shows
what God thinks of mathematics.
There are over 35,000 columns of
rocks — octagonal, hexagonal, pentagonal. These rocks seem to havs
been made by rule and compass. Every artist has his molding room
where ho may make fifty shapes, but
he chooses one shape as preferable to
all others. I will not say Lhat the
Giant's causeway was the world's
molding room, but T do say out of
a grout many figures God seems to
have selected the circle as the best.
"It is he that sitteth oji the circle
of the earth." The stars in a circle,
the moon in a circle, the sun in a
circle, the universe in a circle and
the throne of God the centre of that
Appreciation of this would correct
tho architecture of churches, whose
shape is often a defiance of divine
suggestion. When men build churches
they ought to Imitate the idea of the
Great Architect and put the audience
in a circle, knowing that the tides of
emotion roll more easily thnt way
than in straight linos. Six thousand
years ago God Hung the world out
of his right hand. But he did not
throw it In a straight line, but curvilinear, with a leash of love holding it so ns to bring it back again.
The world started from his hand
pure and Kilenlc. It has been rolling
on through regions of moral ice ami
distemper. How long it will roll
God only knows, but it will in due
time make complete circuit and come
back to thc place whore it started—
the hand of God — pure and Edenlc.
The Circle of History,
The history of the world goes in a
circle. Why is it that the shipping
in our day is improving so rapidly?
A scientific shipbuilder says it is because men are imitating in some respects what the small wits deride,
the old model of Noah's ark, not as
we see it in old time pictures, but as
it really was according to tho account given. Great ships have we
now, but whore is the ship on the
sea to-day that could outride a deluge in which the heaven and the
earth wore wrecked, landing all the
passengers in safety, two of each
Kind of living creatures, hundreds of
thousands of species?
Pomology will go on With itn achievements until after many centuries
the world will have plums and pears
gqual to the paradisaical. The art
of gardening will grow for centuries,
and after the Downings and Mitchells
of the world have done their best in
the far future thc art of gardening
will come up to the arborosconce of
the year 1. If the makers of colored
glass go on improving, thoy may in
somo centuries be able to make something equal to the east window of
York minster, which was built in tho
year 1290. We are six centuries behind those artists. But tho world
must keep on toiling until it shall
piake the complete circuit and come
up to the skill of thoso very men.
If the world continues to improve
jn masonry, we shall have after
awhile, perhaps after tho advance of
centuries, mortar equal to that which
1 saw in the wall of an exhumed
English city built, in the time of thc
Romans 1.000 years ago, that mortar to-day as good ns the day in
Which it was mado, having outlasted
the brick and lhe stone. 1 say, after hundreds of years masonry may
advance   to   that,   point.
If the world stands long enough,
we may have a city as large as they
had in old times — Babylon. fivt
times the size of London. You go
into the potteries of England, and
you find them making cups and Vases
after the style of the cups and vases
exhumed from Pompeii. The world
is not going hack. Oh. no! But It
is swinging in n circle and will enme
around to the styles of pottery
known so long ago as the days of
Pompeii. The world must keep oa
progressing until it makes the complete circuit. The curve is in the
right direction: the curve will keep
on until  it  becomes  the circle.
Bad   Deeds Come Itark.
Well. now. what is true in the material universe is true in God'a moral
government and spiritual amuige-
ment. That is the meaning of E/.e-
kiol's wheel. All commentators agree
in saying that, tho wheel means God's
providence. But n wheel is .,f no
use unless it turns, and if it 'urn it
turns around, and if it turns around
it moves in a circle. What then? Are
wo parts of a great iron machine
whirled around and around whec.ier
«rc will or nol, the victims of inexor-
abls fate? No! So far from that
I shall show you that we ourselves
start the circle of good or bad actions and that it will surely come
around again to us unless by divine
intervention it be hindered. Those
bad or good actions may make th*
circuit of many years, but come
hack to ns they will as certainly as
that God sits on the circle of the
Jezebel, tho worst woman of tht
Bible — Shakespeare copying his
"Lady Macbeth" from her picture—
slew Nu both because she wanted his
vineyard. While the dogs were eating ihe body of Nab oth Elijah the
prophet put down his compass and
marked a circle from these dogs clear
around to the dogs that should eat
the body of Jezebel, the murderess.
"impossible!" the people said. "That
will never happen." Who is
being Hung out of tho palace
dow? Jezebel A few hours
thoy came around, hoping to Lury
her. They find only the palms of
the hands and the skull. The dogs
th.it. devoured Jezebel and the dogs
thnt devoured Nab oth. Oh. what a
swift,  what, an awful  circuit!
But. it is sometimes the case that
this circle sweeps through a century
or   through   many   centuries. The
world started with a theocracy for
government — that is, God was the
president and emperor of thc w* rid.
People got tired of a theocracy. They
said: "We don't want God directly
interfering with the affairs cf the
world. (Jive us a monarchy." The
world had a monarchy. From a monarchy it is going to have a limited
monarchy. After awhile the limited
monarchy Will be given up and the
republican form of government will
bo everywhere dominant and recognized. Then the world will get tired
of the republican form of government, and it wil! have an anarchy,
which is no government at all. And
then all nations, finding out that
man is not capable of righteously
governing man. will cry oul again
for theocracy and say, "Let God
come back and conduct the affairs of
the world." Every step—monarchy,
limited monarchy, republicanism, anarchy — only different steps between
the lirst theocracy and the last theocracy or segments of tlio great circle of the earth on which God sits.
l.enolvn to   Ilo  CiOOd,
But do not become impatient because you can not see tho curve of
events and therefore conclude that
God's government is going to break
down. History tells us that in the
making of the pyramids it took 2,-
000 men two years to drag une great
stone from the quarry and put it
into the pyramids. Jf men shortlived can afford to work \
so slowly as that, cannot God in the j
building of eternities afford to wait?
What though God should take 10,-
000 years to draw a circle? Shall
we take our little watch which we
have to wind up every ni__'ht lest it
run down and hold it up beside the
clock of eternal ages? If. according
n. the Bible, a thousand years aro
in God's sight as one day. then, ac-
cording to that calculat ion t he <>,-
000 years of the world's existence
hns been only to God as from Monday  to Saturday.
Hut it is often the case that there-
hound is quicker, the return is much
quicker, than that. The circle is
sooner completed. You resolve that
you will do what, good you can. In
one week yotl put a word of counsel
in tho heart of a Sabbath school
chihl. During that same week you
give a letter of introduction to a
young man struggling in business,
lairing the same week you make un
exhortation in a prayer meeting. It
is all gone. You will never near of
it perhaps, you think. A few years
after a man comes up to you and
says, "You don't know me, do you?"
Vou say, "No; 1 don't remember ever
to have seen you" "Why," he says,
"I was in Lhe Sabbath school class
over which you were the teacher. One
Sunday you invited me to Christ; I
accepted the oiler. You see that
church with two towers yonder?"
"Yes," you say. He says, 'That is
where J preach," or: "Bo you see
t hat governor's house? That is
whero  1  live."
hlunder's Foul Poison.
One day a man comes to you and
si>ys, "Good morning." You look
at him and say, "Why, you have the
advantage of me; I cannot place
you." lie says. "Don't you remember thirty years ago giving a letter
of introduction to a young man — a
letter of introduction to William E.
Dodge?"     'Yes,  yes,  I  do." lie
says: "I am the man. That was
my first step toward a fortune. But
I have retired from business now and
am giving my time to philanthropies
and public interests. Come up to
my house and see me."
But sometimes it is a wider circlo
and does not return for a great
while. I sow a bill of expenses for
burning  Latimer  ami   Ridley. The
bill of expenses has these items
among  others:
Shillings. Pence.
One load of flro fagots.
....  :;
Cartage fur four loads
Item,   a  post   	
Item,     two chains 	
Item,     two staples 	
Hem,   four  laborers   ....
making .n all 258. 8d. That was
cheap fire, considering all the circumstances, but it. kindled a light, which
shone all around the world and

from that burning of Latimer and

wider, starting other circles, convol-
ut ing, overrunning, circumscribing,
overarching all heaven — a circle.
But what is true of the good is
just as true of the bad. You utter
a slander against your neighbor. Tt
has gone forth from your teeth. It,
will never come back, you think. You
have done the mnn all tin; mischief
you can. You rejoice to see him
wince. You say, "Didn't I give it to
him!" That word has gone out,
that slanderous word, on its poisonous and blasted wny. You think it
will never do you any harm. Hut 1
am watching that word, and I see it
beginning to curve, and it curves
around, and it. is aiming at your
heart. You had better dodge it. You
cannot dod^e it.    It rolls into   a_our
bosom, and after it rolls in a word
of an old book rolls in after it saying, "With what measure ye mole it
shall bo measured to you ugain."
Filial Iiisriititiifie.
You maltreated an aged parent-
You begrudge him the room in your
house. You are impntient of his
whimsicalities and garrulity. It
makes you mad to hear him tell the
same story twice. You give him
food he cannot masticate. You wish
he was away. You wonder if he is
going to live forever. Jle will bo
gone very soon. His steps are
shorter and shorter. He is going to
stop. But God has an account to
settle with you on that subject. After awhile your eye will be dim, and
your gait will halt, and the sound
of the grinding will be low. and you
will tell the same story twice, and
your children will wonder if you will
never be taken away. They called
you "father" once. Now they call
you the "old m#n." If you live a
few years longer, thoy will call you
the "old chap." What are those
rough words with which your children are accosting you? Thoy are
the echo of the very words you used
in the ear of your old father forty
years ago. What is that which you
are trying to chew, but lind it un-
masticatablc and your jaws ache
and you surrender the attempt?
Perhaps it may ne the gristle which
you gave to your father for his
breakfast   forty years ago.

Oh, 1 would like to see Paul, the

Antioch, througli Cyprus, throttgh

rope, through America, through the
lirst century, through five centuries,
through twenty centuries, through
earth, through heaven, and at last
the wave of influence, having made
full circuit, strikes his soul. Oh,
then I would like to see him! No
one can tell the wide sweep of the
circlo of Paul's influence save the
one who is seated on tho circle of
the earth.
1 should not like to sec the countenance of Voltaire when his influence comes to full orb. When the
fatal hemorrhage seized him at
eighty-three years of age, his influence did not cease. The most brilliant man of his century, ho had
used all his faculties for assaulting
Christianity, his bad influence widening through France, widening out
through Germany, widening all
through Europe, widening through
America, widening through the 121.
years that have gone since he died,
widening through earth, widening
through the groat, future, until at
last the accumulated influence of his
baleful teachings and dissolute life
will boat against his dismayed spirit, and at that moment it will be
enough in make the black hair of
eternal darkness turn white with
horror. No one can tell how that

"Well, now," say some. "this, in
some respects, is a very glad theory
and in others a very sad one. We
would like to have the good we
have done come back io us. but the
thought lhat all the sins we have
ever committed will come back to
us fills us with affright." My brother. I have to tell you God Can
break that circle and will do so at
your call. I can bring twenty passages of Scripture to prove that
when God. for Christ's sake, forgives a man the sins of his past
life never come back. The wheel
may roll on ami on. but you take
your position behind thi- cross, and
t he wheel st rikes t he cross and is
shattered forever. The sins lly oft

thing a man can dit is after some
difficulty has been settled to bring it
up again, ami Cod will not do anything like that God's memory is
mighty enough to hold all the events
of the ages, but there is one thing
that is sure to slip his memory, one
thing he is sure to forget, and that
is pardoned transgression. Ilow do

sins and their Iniquities will 1 remember  no   more."

But do not mnke the mistake of
thinking tlmt this doctrine of the

(pioto in opposition to me what St.
John says about the city of neaven.
lie says it "Both four square."
That does seem to militate against
this idea of a circle. But. do you
not know there is many a square
house that has a family circle facing each other and in a circle moving, and I can prove that this is so
in regard to heaven. St. John
says, "1 heard the voice of many
angels round about the throne and

again he says, I aw round about

comes from London that he has ordered, through the leading international clipping bureaus, eight sets of
scrap books, each set to contain
whatever was printed or spoken of
the late Queen at the time of her
death. The clippings, gathered in
every country and in all tongues,
and ranging from thc highest illustrated weeklies to thc cheapest provincial prints, fill 100 volumes, although the pages are of full newspaper size, They are pasted upon
light gray bristol board and each
page hinged before binding. Tho
binding is of morocco —half the sets

stamped with the royal arms in
heavy  gilt.
The binding would be black wore

The first municipal institutions of
London were received from the Romans, and they have endured in their
main features to the present day. in
Saxon times it. was in reality an independent state, and William the
Conqueror only gained possession of
the city by means of a treaty. About
eight years after he granted a charter, which is still preserved, addressed to William the Bishop. Godfrey
the Portreeve, and all the Burgesses,
promising that they shall be "law-
worthy" (i.e., possessed of privileges), as they were in the days of
Edward the Confessor. The Portreeve, however, received the Norman
title of bailiff, which in 1189 was
changed to Mayor, the first holder
of thc title being Henry Fitzalwyn,
who filled the oflice for 24 yenrs. On
his death a new charter wns granted
hy King John in 1214, directing the
Mayor to be chosen annually, as has
ever since been done. The title of
Lord Mayor was lirst bestowed in
1854 on Sir Thomas Legge by Edward ill. Aldermen were first appointed by a charter of Henry HI. in

The Corporation of the City o<
London consists of the whole body of
citizens or freemen, under the style
of "tiie Mayor, commonalty and citizens." The small portion of London
which is comprised within tlie city
and its liberties is divided into 27
wards. Each of the wards—except
two, which unite in this—elects one
Alderman and a number of common
Councillors, varying from four to
sixteen. There are thus 20 Aldermen
nnd 202 Councillors. An Alderman is
elected for life, but the Councillors
for one year, although eligible for reelection. The electors in each case
ure freemen, who may have obtained
their freedom by birth, apprenticeship, purchase or gift, but who must

i.s elected by the Liverymen (members of Guilds) of tlie several companies assembled together at the
Guildhall, and to be eligible must
hnve served as Sheriff of London.
The Livery may elect any Alderman
so Qualified, but they usually select
the names of the two senior Aider-
men who have not passed the civic
chair. The names of the two selected
men are then submitted to the general body of the Aldermen, who usually choose the first. The Lord Mayor
elected is presented to tho Lord
Chancellor to receive tlie assent of

Fabulous prices arc obtained for

Ood not only loves a cheerful giver, but the cheerful giver always
gets his reward. That reward is
generally in tbe richer return of spiritual good, but sometimes the reward is in larger material good. Of
this latter class an interesting instance is narrated which occurred
years ago when they were raising
subscriptions to the Plymouth
Church. Cleveland, Ohio. Many
were the struggles and sacrilices
which its walls represented as they
went up. One evening a lad said to
his mother: "I mean to put down
twenty-five dollars to the church. I
have nineteen dollars saved toward
a watch, and I guess I can work out
tho other six dollars somehow."
So the savings of some years went
into those walls, but the boy did
not regret the sacrifice, and the remaining six dollars were also
promptly paid   in.
Tlie pustor was at tbe East soliciting help for his church and mentioned incidentally the boy and his
watch. After service a gentleman
remarked to liiin: "I don't like the
idea of that boy losing his watch."
"Nor I," said one and another. So
a few gentlemen added to the money
until seventy-four dollars was contributed to buy him an excellent
gold watch which would last him

The Greatest Case in the History of Modern Medicine is Completed by Another Sworn
A Prominent Ottawa Man Confirms Under Oath Every Statement Made by this Paper in the Original Story Published Nearly  Seven years ago.
(From  the Ottawa Free Press.)
W. N.  U. No. 319.
Some seven years ago the Free
Press published a g-raphic account ot
a remarkable case here in Ottafiva.
A man named George H. Kent had
been cured of Dright's Disease after
the doctors had given him up to die,
and the Free Press reporter, after a
most thorough investigation, published the whole story in 'detail, giving credit to Dodd's I-i'dneyPills for
the most miraculous cure.
The following sworn statement was
given by Mr. Kent in order to substantiate the almost incredible statement made by the paper in its account of tlie case.
(Sworn Statement, Feb. 16th, 181)5)
I, George Henry Kent, resident at
114- Cnmjbridge street, Ottawa, and
employed as a printer in the British American Bank Note Printing
Company, in thc said City of Ot-
tuwa. do solemnly declare that I
consider it a duty to myself aud to
my fellow men generally to make a
declaration as to the efficiency of
Dodd's Kidney Pills.
1. That I found them in my terrible case of Bright's Disease, from
which I suffered for almost one
year, of the greatest medical value.
I can say confidently amd assure
anyone interested, or a .sufferer,
that I positively owe my life and
present excellent health to tho results brought about by their use. I
was taken sick and confined to my
bed on December 2Sth, 1893, nnd
was successfully treated I'or La
Grippe, then Pleurisy, followed by
Kidney Troubles, and latterly
Bright's Disease. I lost the use of
rny limbs; my entire body became
swollen to a terrible size, an'd my
skin became as hard as and similar to leather, the pores all having
closed iiji, and I suffered the most
agoni.ing pain. I was subject to
ptriodical spells of utter prostration and Insensibility, to a state of
absolute coma. I was also a victim of dangerous convulsions in
which my facial expression and
other muscles would become severely contorted and  tense.
'2. My regular physician attended
to me, and, althoug.li medical consultations were held over my case
by two city doctors, nothing could
be done. My case grew gradually
worse, and latterly I was given up
ns hopeless. My wife, friends, and
neighbors were certain from what
they saw amd were told by the visiting doctors that I would die in a
very "short time.
8. My wife was casually reading
a newspaper about this time, and
saw a description of a similar case,
in which a patient gave testimony
of the relief und cure that hod been
effected on him by Dodd's Kidney
I'iils. I started to take them right
away, and from the first pill I discovered a change for tlie better.
After the first box I wns wonderfully improved, und at the end of the
fourth I was sure I was to get well
again. I continued taking them until the seventeenth box, and I can
now positively declare that I am
perfectly cured and able to do a
day's work with any of my comrades in the shop, and Dodd's Kidney Pills undoubtedly cured me, because'from starting to take them I
took no other medicine whatever.
AND I make this solemn declaration, conscientiously be. eving the
same to bo true, and by virtue of
Declared before me at the City of
Ottawa, in the County of Carlcton,

0. II. KENT.
(Sgd.)  CHAS.  A.  BLANCHBT,
A Commissioner, etc.
The Free Press in the articlo published in 1895 stated most positively that Dodd's Kidney Pills nnd nothing else were entitled to thc credit
of having saved the dying man's life,
and this was most emphatically endorsed by Mr. Kent in his sworn
statement. The Free Press also said
without qualification that the cure
of Mr. Kent was an absolute and

could not moke a sworn statement as
to the future, he stated that he felt
he was permanently cured.
Notwithstanding this there were
many who could not believe that a
man with one foot in the grave as
Mr. Kent was could get a lasting
It occurred to the Free Press the
other day that it would be interesting to enquire now, after tho lapse
of nearly seven years, as to how Mr.
Kent was feeling.
He had   removed   to   408 Gilmour
Street, and at that aiddreSB a Free
Press reporter found him.
After reminding Mr. Kent of the article and his affidavit tlie newspaper
man asked him point blank :—
."Havo you lost any time from
your regular work since you were
cured of Bright's Disease by Dodd's
Kidney Pills in 1895 ."
"Not a minute," answered Mr.
Kent, promptly.
"Have you since had the slightest
symptoms of your old kidney trouble
or anything like it ?"
"Not the slightest,"  he. said.
"You are sure that Dodd's Kidney
Pills and nothing else saved your
life and restored you to your present
good health ?" ,
"Absolutely sure. Why, my wife
and I are so grateful to Dodd's Kidney Pills that we have christened
our litlle girl, born in December, of
IS'.ilj, by the name of 'DodUs.' This
shows you better than anything I
can tell you to what we attribute
my recovery. I owe my life to
Dodd's  Kidney Pills."
"Would you bo willimg in order to
confirm our story published in 1895
to make another sworn statement?"
asked the scribe.
"if it would do yau any good I
have no objections," answered Mr.
Kent. "Tlie Free Press was certainly well within the truth in every
statement they published about my
Mr. Kent, at the Bequest of the
Free Press, has given tho following
sworn statemern. :—
1, GEORGE HENRY KENT, resident at 408 Gilmour Street, in the
City of Ottawa, and employed as a
printer at the American Bank
Note Company in the said City of
Ottawa,   do solemnly declare:—
1. That on February 16th, 1895,
I, George Henry Kent, then resi-
dent at 114 Cambridge Street, Ottawa, did appear before Charles A.
Blanchet, Commissioner, etc., and
before him on that date did make
a solemn declaration regarding my
recovery from Bright'8 Disease by
tho uso of Dodd's Kidney Pills and
setting forth the facts of my case
and its cure.
_. That in the declaration I sot
forth that I believe that I was absolutely and permanently cured by
Dodd's Kidney Pills after the doctors had given me up to die.
3. That I nm now absolutely
curtain that, Dodd's Kidney Pills
and nothing else saved my life and
I. hereby unhesitatingly reaffirm
every statement made in my declaration made before Mr. Blanchet
on  February  16th,   1895.
4. That I have nevor since that
date had tho slightest symptom of
the return of the Bright's Disease
or any kidney trouble having enjoyed unremitting good health and
having worked steadily and without interruption full time nt my
regular employment as a printer
every working day from the day
Dodd's Kidney Pills sent me back
to work to the date of this decla-
.-. That in evidence of owr gratitude to Dodd's Kidney Pills for
having saved my life, my wife nnd
I have christened a little daughter
burn to us in December of 1896 by
the name of  "Ilorlds."
I'. That I have recommended
I'odd's Kidney Pills to many people in this city nnd elsewhere who
having heard of my wonderful escape from death by their use liave
called on mo or written to nie enquiring about tJiem; nnd having
followid many of these cases closely, I know of no case where t hey
have been used according to directions that has not been cured, and
I know positively of my own personal knowledge of several extreme
eases where Dodd's Kidney Pills
have effected satisfactory and peril, niient cures.
And I  make  the solemn   declaration,   conscientiously   believing     it
I o be true, and knowing that it is
oi   Ihe same  force  and  effect  as    if
made under  onth nnd by virtue of
"The Canada Evidence Act, 1893."
Declared  before me at the City of
Ottawa, in the County of Carleton,

There never was, find never will be, a
universal panacea, in une remedy, for all illo
to which flesh ie heir—the very nature of
many curatives being such that were the
germs of other and differently seated diseases rooted in tlio system of the patient—
what would relieve one ill in turn wuuld aggravate the other. Wo have, however, in
Quinino Wine, when obtainable in a sound,
unadulterated state, a remedy for many and
grievous ills. By it-s gradual and judicious
use tho frailest systems are led into convalescence and strength by the iniluence which
Quinine exerts on nature's own restoratives.
It relieves the drooping spirits of those with
whom a chronic state of morbid despondency and lack of n icre-t in life is a disouse,
and, by tranquihzing tho nerves, disposes to
sound and refro.hing sleep—imparts vigor
to the action of the blood, which, being
itimulated, courses throughout the veins,
strengthening the heathy animal functions
of the system, thereby making activity a
necessary result, strengthening the frame,
xnd giving life to tho digestive organs, which
naturally demand increased substance—result, improved appetite. Northrop A; Lyman,
of Toronto have given to the pablic their
superior Quinine Wine at the usual rate, and,
gauged by the opinion of .eientists, thU
wine approaches nearest perfection of any in
