The following in the Victoria Colonist,
tn referrinf to amendment! to ihe'Land-
lord and Tenant Act, brought in by A..
W. Smith, M. P. P., it not favorable to
"The Colonist is in receipt of ■ letter
in regard to a bill now before the house,
entitled, " An Act to amend the Landlord and Tenant Act." The correspondent says that Ihe act is not in amendment to the existing liuv, hut is entirely
new and quite unnecessary, as "Tbe
-Orerholding Tenants Act," cap. 182 ot
.our Revised Statutes, providte all the
necessary remedies. On comparing tbe]
bill with tbe chapter of the Revised Statutes referred to, we feel like saying that
before tbe house passes it, very good evidence ought to be forthcoming, to fbow
tbat such a change in tfce law is called
for in the public interest. The hill bee
been introduced by a private member,
and before the established methods of
dealing wltb property rights is interfered
with, very great rare ahould betaken.
Tbe possession of property is often too
momentous a matter to be determined
off-hand by any stipendiary magistrate
or two justice! of the peace. The provision! of the Revised Statates throw all
necessary safeguard* around tbe tenant
in possession, and we fail to find these
in the bill referred to.

tbem, and iuriiver direct that anything
shall be done by way of precaution to
avert fire
c. Generally to take such steps tor tbe
prevention of fire in the town, or to

d. So regulate the storing of powder

came danger from fire.
e. To compel the owner of any lot situated within three hundred feet of a

opinion of the tire wardens or a majority
of them, each brash or growth ir a menace to the safety of the town from fire.
f. To forbid the discharge of fire arms
within tbe limits of the town, or within
such portion of the town ai the fire warden! may prescribe.
g. To forbid the setting fire to standing trees within the limits of the town.
A Warning Note.
Vienna March 30—The Allcgemiene
Zeitung, a newspaper which is in close
touch with tbe Austrian foreign office,
publishes tbe following note to-day :
"England, Germany and Japan have
presented identical notes to Russia and
China warning tbem that the signing of
the Manchurian agreement will involve
the partition of China. This combined
action deters Russia from insisting on
the signature of tbe agreement. France,
while declining to co-o,perate with England, Germany and Japan, has intimated to Russia that she would regard
the conclusion of tbe Manchunan treaty
as an unfriendly act."
Japan jum Rui.lt.
Yokohama, Jap., March 80—The feeling that there can be no peace in the
Orient save by administering a drubbing to Russia is growing strong here.
It is almost the unanimous belief that
Japan will have to .undertake the task
alone. Coupled witli the strong undercurrent of public opinion iB the evidence
tbat the government is preparing for
the emergency with the utmost possible
dilligence. Unceasing antivity at the
various naval stations and yards ii ie-
ported. Tbe nation is evidently gathering its r«eources and energies tor the
Agulnaltfo Captured.
Manila, March 28.—Aguinaldo, wbo
was captnred by General ifuoaton, was
brought to Manila on tbe U. S gnnboat
Vicksbarg, was brought ashore at 8:10
p, m. today and taken before General
MacArthur at the Malaoin Palace. He
talked freely but seemed ignorant concerning what had happened recently.
He appeared to be in good health and
was cheerful. He lunched with the officers of General MacArthur'i staff and
was then escorted to tbe Ana street jui'.
Agninaldo'seaptnre was attended with
considerable difficulty, an insurgent
major being killed at the time of tbe
event. Twenty rifles and a number of
important papers were captured.
Editor Tut Prospector, Sir: A letter
by J. B. Cherry in last weeks issue of The
Prospector is by no means undeserving of
notice. Who is this J. li. Cherry who pro-
po.es to set himself up .s a dictator lo the
citizens of Lilloce'? Has he a corner on town
lots? Or, is he simply a lot owner in lhe em-
broyo? The lepord cannot change his spots.
Any one with half an eye can detect the trail
of the serpent in Mr. Cherry's letter.
Mr. Cherry docs not want to see the streets
straightened out. -Jt is a part of his business
to tangle up tlie affairs of the town.
We owe it to the bounty of Providence that
the completes! depravity ofhearl is sometimes
strangely united with confusion ol the mind.
In regard to signing petitions I don't think
it will be necessary for lhe lot owners of Lil-
loet to consult Mr. Cherry on the subject.
All that the lot owners on River Bank street
ask of the government is pure and impartial
justice. They intend asking the government
to open up River Bar.k street, and they ex-
pect the government to grant their request. In
regard to the money required for building of
said street. The government have already
sold lots enough to more than repay ihem for
opening it up.
Mr. Editor, I hope you will pardon me for
taking up so much space in your valuable
paper. The dearest interests of the town are
at stake. We must have street questions settled at once. An attempt has been made not
merely to job us of our legal rights, but to
prejudice thc government against granting our
petition. Cjtj_sn.

The British Army.
The British army not counting in colonial forces, will be much larger numerically and stronger generally than of yore,
undVr the re-organisation scheme, which
Lord Boherta and tbe war office authorities bave arranged. It will consist of no
less than 6SO.O0O men, including 250,000
volunteers and 35,000 Yeomanry, who
will practically be mounted rifle regiment!. The Voluuteeri and Yeomanry
will, ot course, together constitute in tbe
main a wall drilled and equipped home
detence force, but in case ot real Imperial
need, it is certain that from their joint
rank! there could be drawn for foreign
service at least 60,000 men.

Civil v.. Eccllaatlcal Law.
In the supreme court at Montreal on
Saturday, Judge Archibald gave judgment in the celebrated Delpit case in
favor of Mrs. Delpit. The judge declares
that Mrs. Delpit is legally the wife of
Delpit and that the marriage contract
performed by Rev. Mr. Barnes is valid,
in the eyes of the civil laws of tbe province. Shorn'of legal phraseology, the
judgment means that the decision of the
court places the Civil law above the Ecclesiastical law, and Delpit will have to
ask a higher court to give effect to the
Ecclesiastical judgment, rendered in the
case, which meant divorce. The judge
said that the state had no right to inter-
fete with the internal affairs of a church
ol any character, but that parties in a
church had a perfect right to go to any
legalized authority to get married, if
thev wanted to.
days ago on the body of Ruben Con-ins,
who hanged himself in his baraatShaw-
nigan on Wednesday last, resulted in a
verdict ot luictde by hanging. In ad
dressing tlie jury the coroner aaid: " I
wish to denounce to you, and through
you, to as large a section of the public as
possible, the culpable folly of this widespread prejudice or superstition against
catting down a person found hanging.
Instance! have come under my own observation where the medical testimony
has afterwards shown that if prompt action had been taken life might have
lieen saved. I do not envy tbe feelings
of any man who finds that bis neglect
has made him accessorv to tbe death of
a fellow creature. I do not apply these
remarks to the present case, where witness seems to have taken steps to ascertain that life had been for some hours
extinct; but cases may arise where my
words, if remembered, might be tbe
means under providence of saving life."
The Toronto-Lillooet Gold Reefs'-o. started up their mill on the 4th March, but unfortunately after running four days one of the
rock crushers in the mill broke, necessitating
in sending tc San Francisco /or a new piece
which only reached the mill on the 31st of
March. Instead of crushing from forty to fifty
tons of ore daily, the breaking of this crusher
prevented getting through the mill less than
half that quantity. There were several other
stops during the month from various causes,
making a loss of three or foui days in tbe
month, consequently only about 700 tons ef
ore was treated and the cleanup will be correspondingly small.
The company is well satisfied with the assry
value of the ore treated, but are disappointed
wiih the per centage of extraction detained.
Instead of extracting sixty-five or seventy per
cent of the values as was hoped, this month*
operations have demonstrated the unfortunate
fact that only about fifty per cent can be saved
of the value in the ore by the raw cyanding of
the material crushed. Experiments on a smart
but satisfactory scale has been made hy the
superintendent of the properly show'ing Tria't
an extraction Of-95 per cent can readily he obtained hy roasting the Jre. Tbe company regards this loss of 45 per cent as being greater
than it is able to stand and therefore it is not
unlikely that in a short time operations at the
company's works will cease until a proper
roasting plant can be installed and this may
take two or three months, a. the machinery
will be brought a long distance. Even the
temporary cessation of operations by this company is greatly to be regretted hut tbe company
feels it cannot in justice to its liest interests
continue to sustain thc loss of nearly half tbe
values in their ores. The cleanup at the mill
cannot be made until the 7th or 8th inst. to
take in the fall March crushing as each tub or
rat of ore requires six or seven days ia the
cyanide solution.

A Nanaimo despatch lays: It is reported that a miner at New Alberni
helped himself to au egg from tbe chicken house of a neighbor. The latter bad
been missing his eggs and, suspecting
rats, had loaded one with strychnine.
This happened to be the one the miner
got. He took it into a neighboring bar
and asked for an eggnog in accordance
with his daily custom. The bartender
pointed out tbat the egg bad been fixed
up with sticking plas'er, but the miner
"guessed it was all right anywav," and
directed the operations to proceed.
rbev proceeded. It took two doctors
and one stomach pump to prevent a fun
eral.   The miner is recovering.

Cent! have made their appearance in

Tbe Hudson'! Bay company made the
announcement that it will accent the

but the consumers have demanded it.
Thus the big firm takes tbe initiative.

Legislatures are in the habit of spend-

stock debate such aa the budget, in
which one member after another gets
up and repeats the same shopworn nothings over and over again, and yet when

future of the province is involved and
which would well repay the most careful study and attention it ia disposed of
practically on the assurance that it will

a field for British mining investment, stands
on quite a different footing from other important fields such as Australia and New Zealand,
or even South Africa. In these the English
investor has matters very much his own way,
but in British Columbia it is not so. There
he has to compete with the American, who
had the important advantage of being first in
the Province, is always on the spot, who besides is keener commercially —though less tec-
hnially—than the Englishman. If we are to
survive in such a struggle for existence we
must improve our commercial methods. We
must not send men out to' purchase mining
properties who are utterly ignorant of mining,
as we have done. We must not buy on vendors' reports, as we have done. We must not
build mills and smelters, when we have not
sufficent money in hand or at command for
mine development, as we have done. We must
not build mills before we have a mine ncr
leave the selection of treatment processes to
men who are mill-builders only, as we have
done. We must not send out to manage properties, men in whom we have so little confidence that they are little more than puppets
worked from this end, as we have"done. We
must not leave thc management of mines
largely to boys just from school, as we have
done. Even if it be from a School of Mines.
Mining can only be learned in the mine, although a knowledge of it is more rapidly and
thoroughly reached if the perliminary training
has been of the right kind. We must pay
more attention-to mining and less to the share
market, think more of dividends earned from
the sale of mineral and less of those realised
by the manipulation of stocks."
London, March 30.—Oxford's eight defeated the Cambridge crew to-day in a hard
fought struggle through rough water from Put-
ney to^Mortlake. It was a grand race and at
the finish only two-fifths of a length sepcrated
the two shells. Both crews were greatly distressed. The time was 22 minutes 31 second .
At the start Cambridge was considered to
have a great advantage, for winning the toss,
she was able to choose the Surrey side and so
secure some protection from the effect on the

This history of a ease of double personality has not. so fur as I know, been
recorded before. More than 20 yours
have elapsed since the death of Norah
!'... ami it is not now possible to obtain
many of the details which one would like
to have. Hut even in ils Imperfect state
the hi tnr.v seems to mo to present peculiarities which make it remarkable. 1 will
five it in two partB. This lirst part contains Information supplied by Miss X.,
who acted as Norah's governess and at a
later period as her companion. This lady
is still alive, and ber wish to have nil
names suppressed must bo respected.
Tbe Information is supplemented by a
few entries in the notebook of a doctor
who at one time attended Norah.
Norah's parents died when she waa
still a baby, and unfortunately their family history cannot be Irsicod. Her father
wns nn English artist: the mother was
Trench nncl much younger than her husband. They lived abroad—at Home for
the greater part of the year. It was
there that they died, within a few days
of one another, of •malignant malarial
fever. Nornh wns brought to England
and adopted by a childless couple—her
lather's brother nnd bis wife.
The adoptive father hns practically
nothing to do with this story. lie seems
to bave boon, a commonplace little man,
energetic iu his profession—he wns a so-
lieiioi—nnd completely under the dominion of bis wife nt home. Mrs. S. wns a
woman of strong and narrow religion!
convictions and of n kindly nature. Both
were devoted to the child. Tbey lived ia
a suburb of a north country manufacturing town, where Mr. S. had bis practice.
Up to tbe age of 8 Nornh received a certain amount of desultory teaching from
M:«. 8. Then a regular governess wns
Miss X. was nt thnt time a teacher of
more enthusiasm than judgmont. Nornh
was very fond of her; she was a child of
precocious intelligence; she was eager to
learn. Miss X. wns proud of her pupil
nnd pushed her on. The child worked
six hours a day aa a rule, sometimes more,
nnd she really did work. At that time
unreasoning education was just coming
into fashion. One is not surprised to tind
that shortly nfter Norah's ninth birthday
the doctor hnd to be called In.
Fie wns nn old gentleman, nnd he kept
n kind of rough notebook in which he
recorded things of medical nnd other interest. He speaks of Nornh ns n pretty
little gypsy. He found thnt she slept ill,
wns very nervous and hail a poor and capricious appetite. She was nnsomic, but
lie bled her all the same. Por the rest
bis treatment seems to a layman to have
been sensible enough, He gave her a
tonic, which probably did her no harm.
He regulated her diet. He absolutely
forbade nil lessons for the next three
Mouths. He sent her to the seaside and
gave instructions thnt she was to play
with other children. He noticed, by the
wny—of course before the days when
such things became n special study—that
Norah frowned and twisted ber fnee if
she were nsked a question that it was
difficult or unpleasant for her to answer.
The child went to Lowestoft wilh her
Adoptive mother and Miss X. Mr. S.
was detained by his business. The doctor hnd given Miss X. the rough side nf
his tongue. In his notebook he speaks
of her as "the hired assassin." She was
duly penitent. But Ihe old gent Ionian
recognized llmt she bad made her mistake through ignorance and thnt the
ndoptlve mother hnd shared the lgn»
i-nnee nnd encouraged the overpressure.
He saw, too, that the child was very
fond nf her nnd tluit it would be bud for
the child to part them nt this juncture,
Miss X. In her distress had resigned her
post, but the doctor would nol permit her
lo go. He toh] her bluntly that she had
done cnoucli bnriu without lhat. She
wns now us eager to amuse Norah nnd
nurse her back to health ns she hnd formerly been In turn her Into an infant
proiligv.   The child got rapidly better.
On ihe afternoon of Sept 'JS. 1804-
tbe dnie Is fixed by n letter In Miss X.'s
possession—Nornh went mil In piny nn
the bench with pome young friends
whose neqiuiinlnnee she hnd recently
made. At Icntlnie, ns she ilid not return. Miss X. went oul lo look fo, her
She found her alone under the cliff fast
nslccp-    She woke her.
"Why. Nornh. you've been asleep!"
i=be said.
The child looked surprised. "I'm nit
Nornh." she said. "Norah's gone nwsy.
I'm .Innet."
Miss X. nt lirst thought this was some
eliililisb joke. "And who's Janet?" she
"Norah's twin sister. Didn 1 you know;
She's told me nil nbout you and Mrs. S."
So far us is known Norah's parents had
no other child. Il is worth noting, loo.
thnt the normal Norah never spoke of
"Mrs. S."   She always called her "moth-
' Miss X hegnn to get a litlle nervous,
but she still tried to get the child to confess thnt this wns some silly joke. It
was useless. The child persisted thnt
she wns .Innet. She was annoyed at having It questioned nnd nsked Miss X. not
to tense ber. ,.      _
She wns tnken home, nnd there Mrs. S.
clung to the theory that It wns some

She picked up a pencil and wrote the i
unme   quickly   and   without   hesitation. !
Then the two women knew that some- j
thing wns wrong, for the name wus writ- j
ten in looking glass writing—writing that
must be held to n minor to be read.  Aft- I
er  that,  at   Miss   X.'s suggestion,   they
dropped the question of identity nud talked to her about other things.   She seemed
perfectly   reasonable,   but  less  quick  to
understand  things  than   Norah   usually
wns.    It wns noticed thnt, unlike Nornh
in   her  normal  condition,   she  wus  left
handed.     Miss   X.   thinks   there   were
some other slight  differences  from  the
normal Norah—in the appearance of the
eyes, the tone of the voice nml lhe choice
of words.    But ns to these she cannot
speak very precisely nfter this lapse of
The child slept until long after her usual hour next morning. When she woke,
she hail no knowledge of anything lhat
had happened since she wenl to sleep on
tl.e bench. She wns completely restored
to her normal condition. Mis. S. hnd
been iu a stale of great distress. It was
not uncommon ut that period for people
to regard phthisis ns romantic and any
mental ilerangenienl as disgraceful. Certainly Mrs. S. look lhe hitter view. She
wus rejoiced lo find lhe child restored to
herself, und she bound Mi«s X. to say
nothing about the incident to anybody,
"lest people should bring it up against
her afterward " She considered that Norah had heen too much in lhe sun and
lhat this had "made her silly" for n lime.
Considering that the disappearance of
lhe symptoms meant the disappearance
of the disease, she did not call in a doe-
Nornh apparently completely regained
her health. She did not become nn infant prodigy. At Ihe nge of 14. when
Miss X. left her und she wus plneed in
lhe hands of foreign governesses, she
seems In bare been a fairly normal girl,

eager lo see the world.
Eight yenrs afterward Miss X. took lhe
post of companion to Nornh. During the
Interval she had once more become an orphan, nnd she liail'^nhoriled Mr. S.'s for-
lune. which was nol immense, but was
much greater than il had been supposed
he would leave behind him. It gave No
rah an Income of about £1.700 a year.
She eame lo London, where she had
many I'lTcnds. Some uf these were anxious to have ber live with them, .but she
was fond of her independence. She
wrote to Miss X.. wilh whom she had
kept up n desultory correspondence, and
an arrangement was soon made between
them. They lived together in a comfortable house iu Hnmpstend. Here also
Miss X. noticed nothing thnt could be
called abnormal about Norah. She wus
bi'lghl nnd energetic, fond of pleasure
nml particularly fond of getting new experiences.
Nornh was al this time engaged lo be
married to a distinguished orientalist nnd
traveler, a man about ten years older
(ban herself, lo whom she wns devoted.
II was arranged that after the marriage
Miss X. was lo act as her housekeeper.
Three days before the marriage was to
hnve laken place Norah committed sui
cide, poisoning herself with oxalic acid.
It is not a good suicide poison, became
the antidote is to be found ready at hand
III most houses. But Norah was not discovered: she took the poison in a diluted
form und died in her sleep.
No motive of nny kind could be found
for the act at tbe time, aud the usual
verdict was reiurned.
By ber trill she left to Miss X. an ud
tiuily and all her books and papers.
Among the latter was a bundle ot penny
exercise books tied up with string and
marked "Not to be read until a year after my death." Rightly or wrongly. Miss
X. made no mention of these nt the in
quest. It is from them thnt Ihe brief
second part of Nornh's history is here
written. I hnve uot been permitted to
read lhe whole of these books as yet.
Much of what I have read 1 am not permitted to repent here, nnd of verbatim
quotation I cnn give very little.
These books are a revelation of the
tragedy of Norah's life. Tbey nie con
corned principally with her second personality, .Innet, and are not consecutive,
long lapses occurring between the dales
of Ihe different books.
There is no reference to the Lowestoft
Incident In them. The lirst book is dated
when Norah wns lo years old. The first
line begins: "I was Janet in my sleep
last night. It is no good to pray nny
more. One day she will come when I nm
awake, nnd everybody will know, and
they will shul nie up somewhere and any
that I nm mad."
That uole of horror Is repeated nil
through the books. She makes miserable little pathetic tests of her sanity and
cnn lind nothing wrong but thut one
thing—that she feels that she mny at nny
time lose her personality, thut Janet must
come buck. She feels il n disgrace that
she is not like other people: she longs for
help and sympathy, yet not for worlds
would she speak of her trouble to a single soul.
She appears lo hnve some menus, never
Indicated, of communicating will, this
inyslerloiis Iwin sister. She speaks of
telling her things and of exacting n
promise from her thut she will never
come buck except when Nornh is nlone at
lllght. Then we bear no more of Ihese
conversalions. which nre reported in n
moat mniler of fact wny, and another
horror springs up. Janet means to mid
her. She will never speak, but Nornh
After Ihnt comes a period of nbout a
year, during which there urn no notes nl
nil. This period coincides with her resl
deuce iu London nud .ncltidvs lhe few
months of her engagement. Indeed il
may be doubted If Norah ever wrote in
lhe hook again. Tor the next entry, which
is lhe Inst, is written in Ihe looking glns<
hand.   1 held it to a mirror nud rend:
"I have come back for n litlle while,

One dny us he Blood in tlie front room
up stnlrs his attention was attracted
to the street Looking out of the window, lie saw a funeral procession passing from the door and out through the
gate. The casket was small, white uud
covered with flowers. lie recognized
frleuds and neighbors In the crowd,
nnd through some indefinable Impression he understood that the corpse was
that of his son, though he had no son
nt Hint time. Surprised and startled nl
the thought, he saw the procession vanish, anil lie was entirely al a loss how
to account for the experience. The
hour was noon, and there was nothing
lu his mood or environment apparently
that Induced the subconscious,
"W'llhin a few months a 1111Io son
was born to us, and at the age of 3
years tt was carried out of the gate lu
a flower covered, white casket and followed by the same friends my busband
had seen that noontime long before.

Wholesome spices are used on a targe
scale In this country, Time was when
many of them were worth their weight
iu gold, but today ihey sue sill cultivated so that they cost .mly a fraction of
what .hey did in ancient days. It is said
that Pliny paid sit thu rate of ,*5 per
pound for pepper. Now black and white
pepper is so cheap that we use it lu everything. There are some queer uses .to
which spiei's are put in some countries.
In many hut lands a pepper tea is made
and consumed in great quantities, snd
tlie spice is liberally mixed With all foods
to Btlmitlato the appetite. In the cold
northern woods Use luguien use it as a
stimulant, mixing it with water and
driuklug it hot. It is said I" I"' an nnli-
dole I'i r colds that takes the place of
more harmful stimulants.
Cloves when properly used nre wholesome. The oil or cloves is used for
medicinal purposes,.and its pungent, uro-
malic fiavor makes it an exceedingly
pleasant remedy for lhp""tooihuolic. Like
pepper, the oil of cloves Is used to ward
off n cold In some climates. A few
drops of it in warm milk are mildly efficacious. The scent of the oil of cloves is
disliked very much by the small vermin
. which live in oh! wooden furniture, and
o few drops on the woodwork will generally drive them out. In early days
hams were always cooked stuck full of
cloves, nnd this practice is still kept up
in paris of lhe south. The spices give
to the meat a delicate flavor.

A Story of Whistler.
Tho Boston Transcript says: "A diverting anecdote is told of the boyhood
of Mr. Whistler, the greatest modern
Impressionist. Ile was apprenticed to
some engineers who were etching elaborate maps on copper. One day his
employer asked lilm If he also could
etch maps on copper. 'Oh, yes. I can
etch,' promptly answered young Whistler.
"As t matter of fact he had never
used an etching needle In his life.
However, they gave him the copper,
uud he Bet to work, mnklng a very line
aud beautiful map. But round the
edges of the plate, which when bitten
in with acid are always stopped out, he
etched some characteristic little sketches of the different members of the
firm, Including a very humorous one of
the chief himself.
"Shortly after he happened to ge
away for a week or two for his holiday. Meantime the. plate hnd been
bitten tn and printed wltb all of the
dreadful little caricatures that he had
forgotten to stop out appearing In startling prominence, the sketch of the
chief being especially remarkable because of Its great resemblance to that
gentleman, who was so enraged at tbe
Indignity of the thing that Immediately

Anaemia is the term used by dostors
lo indicate poverty of the blood. The
alarming, especially among young
girls, and a large percentage of tlie
altogether too numerous cases of consumption which annually ravage the
country have their origin iu this
I rouble. The lirst indication of an-
nemia is a pale, sallow or waxy complexion. This is followed by loss of
appetite, frequent headaches, Indispo-
tiun to exertion, swelling of Ihubs,
violent heart palpitation end frequently fainting fits. These symptoms
may not. all be present, but the more
there are the greater lhe urgency for
prompt and effective} treatment,which
should be persisted in until all traces
of the trouble have vanished. Among
the thousands who have been brought
n< ar to the brink of ihe grave lYeni
Ihis trouble, and ultimately restored
to health through the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, i.s Miss Bella
Doyd, an esl Unable young lady whose
home is at Cobourg. Miss Boyd gives
her experience as follows :—
"It is nearly ten years since my illness (irst commenced, and although T
was doctoring more or less I received
little or no benefit,., as the doctors
clid not seem, to linderstnnd 'my.trouble. Two years ago my health become so bad that another doctor was
called in. itfi'cl he'stated lhat my case
w'us a most severe: type of anaemja.
nnd that while he could'help me the
trouble hud progressed* to such a
stage that he ciSVrlrl hold 'out little
hopes of a cure. "At this time I was
ns pale as chalk, my eyelids were
swollen and would hang down over-
my eyes like sacks of water. My'feel
and limbs would .well, and were always cold. I was subject, to violent
headaches, severe palpitation of the
heart, nnd 1*1 stooped over T would
be so dizzy that I could scarcely regain nn upright, position. My appetite failed me nlm'ost entirely, audi
grew so weak ,'. th'iji I was a mere
wreck. While in this condition I
rend in a newspaper of Use cure of
a young girl whojp" case was much
like mine, through tho use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, nnd T determined
lo try them. Those who knew me
d'd not think any medicine could do
me any good or that. I would over
get better, but J determined at ull
events to give (he pills a fair trial.
1 have used them for nearly a year
Willi lhe result that I feel like a now
person. -The'swelling in my eyelids
and limbs has disappeared: my appc-
tilo is good and my face is regaining
tlie color which loft it years sign. 1

little lo say that they have saved my
life and I strongly urge girls who
nre similarly afflicted to give them a
thorough  trial.
