A WEST OF ENGLAND WORTHY. CHARACTERISTIC STORY. A special" in the Bridport News gi vee a character- istic history of a West County worthy, James Hawker, of Uploders, Dorset. Engaged in farming, Mr. Hawker was seen at his home, and racily answered the proposal to publish a part of his life- history. "Lor' bless you, sir, I want, everyone to know he said and it was an interesting story that skilful reporter extracted from him. Lite most agriculturists, Mr. Hawker had to have his grumble. Times were not over good; the weather was trying he had not been very well, eitherâ" In fact, I used to be terribly bad, what with my rheu- matism and bleeding at the nose; oh, for 18 months or more, and net a week without it. But I've not had it now since the beginning of March." Ah," said Mrs. Hawker from the corner, Jim's another sort of a chap now. He used to have the rheumatism so bad he couldn't lift his arms or dress himself." The story was fairly staited now, and the reporter had only to take it down id rapid shorthand. "Ay, that's right enough. I had the rheumatism off and on, you know, for three -or four years, and had to stop at home. Work! how could a fellow work when you can't lift your arms up? But I did suffer, I can tell 'ee." Mrs. Hawker again interrupts the conversation. But, you know, sir, I saw something in one of the little books about rheumatism being cured by Dr. Williams' pink pills, and, as poor Jim couldn't get anything to ease him, I thought he should try the pills, as it said they were good for that. He'd tried nearly everything and been doctoring for years." Weil, did he take them ?" Take 'em Yes; but I looked on it more as a joke than anything, and said to the missis I'd take the box and all." "Ah, Jim laughed at me, but it turned out right. I used to have a job with him, and got anything I MR. JAMES HAWKER, A Weft Country worthy whose story has 'been attracting attention in Dorsetshire newspapers. (From a photograph.) could. I got him some embrocation, but nothing did him any good, and I began to feel he never would be right. I got anything I could, and it was a blessing I saw that little book about Dr. Williams' pink pilis." That's right enough, and you can't think how I feel about those pills. I felt easier after the first dose. I said, 'By Jove, missis, I believe they're the thing for me now, for I seem looser about the shoulders already That was a day or two after I began iaking 'em, and so I went on, and, would you believe it, when I had taken two boxes and a half I was as right and as well as ever I was. I'd been bad for years, and some mornings I couldn't heave my arms up to my head. I hardly knew myself when I got rid of the pain. The change the pills brought about was wonderful, and I tell everybody about it, because I think if folks knew more about 'em it would be better for 'em, and save a lot of pain and expense in doctoring." The mother here said, "Ah, Jim, it wasn't only the rheumatism, but they stopped the nose-bleed- ing." Mrs. Hawker said that was so, as her husband couldn't stoop to chop a stick without his nose bleed- ing. And you know, sir," she added, "I got frightened about it, because I've heard it brings on fits. Besides, he was never safe anywhere, and it kept him so weak. If I have anything wrong with me I take some of Dr. Williams' pink pills, and they soon pull me together again." It is upon such evidence as this that Dr. Williams' pink pills have built up their immense reputation. Merit alone has made them a household word people have used them and told each other of their value. Consequently there is hardly a village and certainly not a town in England where inquiry will not bring to light some local celebrity who has become the talk of the neighbourhood, through being cured as if magically by Dr. Williams' pink pills. Along with the severe cases cured (consumption, paralysis, chronic rheumatism, gout, and so forth) go thousands of milder cases, where such ailuaents as erysipelas, scrofula, eczema, St. Vitus' dance, neuralgia, and anamiia have been cured, or where weak, languid invalids have grown well and strong, thanks to Dr. Williams' pink pills. The only danger is that substitutes are sometimes pushed by unscrupulous shopkeepers. The genuine pills are safe, and are perfectly free from all purgative effect. Substitutes may be dangerous, and they have never been shown to cure anyone. The way to avoid them is to deal with honest tradesmen who do not try to sell you substitutes to ask carefully for Dr. Wil- liams' pink pills for pale people, and take care to see that all these words are printed on the wrapper of the pills; to take no notice of anything that may be said about substitutes being "as good" or the same" as Dr. Williams' (which is wickedly untrue) and if there is any doubt, send direct to Dr. Williams' Medicine Company, Hotborn-viaduct, London, en- closing the priceâtwo and ninepence for one box thirteen and nine for six boxes.
