Everybody ih Hawkesbury knows
Mr. WiJliam^Sinith..., _He .caniQ„h.ere
when the town was yet in its village
days, as one of the lumber company's
staff of mechanics. Jn 1881 Mr.
Smith was appointed town constable, and filled that position until
very recently. As is well known to
many of Mr. Smith's friends, he has-
suffered much from kidney trouble
for quite a number of years past, and
at times'the'pain in his back was so
great that he mas- almost physically
incapable of exertion,. lie doctored a
great deal, sometimes getting temporary relief, hut the cause of the
trouble wad not removed, and soon
the pains, accompanied alternately
by chills and fever, returned. At last
lie came to look upon his condition
as one which no medicine cpuld permanently cure. "Indeed his condition
might still have been one of much
suffering had not Mr,s. Smith ultimately prevailed upon her husband to
give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a trial.
"It seemed," said'Mr. Smith to a reporter of the Post, "that it was a
useless experiment,* and yrct T was
willing to do almost anything that
would bring relief. I bad not used
the pills long before, there was undoubted relief, more in fact than I
bad obtained' from - any other - .medicine. I continued, their use and soon
all symptoms 'of the trouble, thai, bad
made my life'one of much misery for
many years was gone. I feel that I-
arri cured, and have no hesitation in
saying that the cure is due to "Dr.

Some puts it that the anaiks on this  yere claim is its greatest drawback,  an   ter hear 'em talk'ye'd think that  aJeJler couldn't stay hyar 15 minuets  without bein' swaliered by them;  but  wait till I tells ye the true facts.   Now'  these yere anaiks aire perty'bad, 'less  ye know how ter take 'em.   A feller  -must,wear high boots an',keep his eyes  peeled.   Then I wears er buskskin suit  under my other clothes, which has saved  my life more 'an once,  Now, thar was  ituggy Jones, who lived over thar on  the next claim.  .He comes over ter see"  me one day,  'lowin he ain't afeared  of no snaik livin'.   He warn't the man  ter listen   ter no reason;    he  comes  a-wearin'  of ,them low  dude gaiters,-  an' the first thing- he knows he's bit  with one uv them snaiks.   Well, he  slobbers 'round a little,- takes a fit, try-  in  ter kill everybody, then curls up an'  dies deader  'au Moses.  ,'Twarn't my  fault, seein* as how he had be^h warned;  but eomo folks will be fools.  Uv course,-  accidents will sometimes happen, even  with the most keerf ul. Thar's my wife,  -Mandy,  now.    You couldn't    find   a  keerfuler woman 'an her, but it all  happened like this:    One'night one iiv  them dad blamed, snaiks gits an' hides  itself in  the bed, an' the first thing  we knows Mandy is bit.   It warn't her  fault, fer who'd think uv wearin' snaik  pertectersinthebed? Well, she pumps  a gallun uv my best whisky down her  throat,, an' it kinder newteralizes that  yere pizen, so instead uv dyin' she only  has some fits.   Mandy ain't no slouch  in a skirmosh, an' when them fits comes  on ye'd be safe in 'lowin' that I had j  my hands full.   She gits the corn-knife,  'lowin' that everybody is after her, an' I  out she g-oes,, slashin* at everything,  dangerus like.   It's about daylight by  this time, an' she meets Sol Miller, who  is out early lookin' fer hie mules.   She  me-cks fer him, on' Jfoi*e he gits on ter  what eho's drivin' at, she has sliced off  one ov his years, an; he only 'scapes by  beiu! oao ov tho best runners in the  settlement. *She next slashes the Head  uv my best dog off, an' after'she had  sliced fiia tail off one uv my hosraes, I  finally ropes her.

"Blame my cats, that's Mandy hfivin'  one ttv them fits!." cried Buck. "Look  out fer yorself an' team.'ofranger; while1  I runs fer a rope!"  But Billings did not wait to listen.  With one bound he ml ih his wagon,  and a moment later had lashed the  mules into a gallop and was disappearing down the trail in a cloud of dust.
