GREAT REDUCTION IN THE CONSUMPTION DEATH RATE IS IT CURABLE?—AN INTERESTING INTERVIEW. In 1853 (says the" Weekly Dispatch") the deaths from consumption in Great Britain were at the rate of 29 84 per thousand of the popula- tion. In 1892 the number had fallen to 10 82 per thousand, or about one-third, and it has not i risen since. Still, the insidious malady is istt il too pravalent, and he who can discover a curs for it, will be hailed as a benefactor to the race. ib has lately been alleged that a remedy has b-?en    -?P?Md q?cer, ?da \Veddy Dispatch" Co?im?sioner ?aa deputed to make mqmiy. Is it the case that you have a new cure for consumption, and that people have already been lestorea to health by itel asked the Weekly i spates Commissioner, interviewing the head of a well-known establishment in London. It is quite true that several persons discharged from various consumption hospitals have been Cured lately, and that the fact ha.s been noticed a good deal in the Press," was the reply. "But" (" ith a quiet smile) "there is nothing new about the retijedy. It is Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for I'ale People. The Dr. Williams' Medicine Com- pany has from time to time received intimation? that consumptive people in ali parts of the world have been cured by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. But we never made a feature of the cases in our advertising until lately, for the reason that we were afraid lest there should be some mistake in the matter; and it would be contrary to all our rules to recommend our Pills for any disorder unless we were absolutely sure that they had been proved suitable to it." What -o you mean by 'fearing some mis- take?' Well," said the manager, "a mistake could arise in one of two ways. People might suppose that they had been f I AFFECTED BY CONSUMPTION, whereas they had suffered from some other cause, such as blood-spitting from injury to the throat or stomach; or they might really have been consumptive, and, having got a little better, imagined themselves cured when they were not really so. But recently—that is to say, within the last year or two—we have had under our observation, cases in which consumption un- doubtedly did exist, we the patients had been examined and certified as consumptive at various hospitals and in other official ways. These j people were led to use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and, as a rewlt. after a time they were proved to be "cured." This led us to make the facte pub- lic, and they have been taken up and reported upon by a number of newspapers, by our re- quest. That is the whole story. You see there is nothing very striking about it." Not very; it is simply an exceptional re- cord of an honest hesitation successfully re- moved." "I don't know that there is anything excep- tional about it, though it's very kind of you to say so. What has happened in the case of the disease consumption, or phthisis, is just what has happened with a number of other diseases which are incurable by ordinary medicine, but which are cured, as published evidence shows, by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills." What diseases do you refer to? Oh, a number of them—locomotor ataxy, and other forms of paralysis, for example; spinal disease, cystitis (a disorder of the bladder), some forms of anaemia, and some disorders special to women. We were some years before we pub- lished our first case of locomotor ataxy, although we had reports of several cases cured in the inter- val. We wished to see if THE CURE WAS PERMANENT, because the man had been paid death dues amounting to over L200 by an insurance com- pany, on the certificates of medical specialists, that he was absolutely incurable, and could not live. This is Mr. Marshall, and he is well and -sti,ong to-day, thanks to Dr. Williams' Pink Pilla. Another instance is that of Mr. Robertson, a well-known Scottish football player. He sus- tainad an inj ury which culminated in spinal dis- eaee, with a huge growth on the back. He WM discharged from the Glasgow Infirmary Hospital as incurable, and went home to die. His mother spent £ 150 trying to get him cured by various means. He was cured m a very short time when he began to take Dr. Williams' Pink Pilis, and can play football as well as over. He is a for- nlidable chiip in the field, I can tell you I Then there is the case of Mr. George Bilton. who was paid his death dues by a Friendly Society-the BouSr Makers—as totally and per- manently disabled by cystitis, or inflammatory catarrh of the bladder; certified as practically i dead by three doctors. He was cured by Dr. I W illiams' Pink Pills; we waited MORE THAN A YEAR before publishing his case in our book. He had lain paralysed for more than two years, and also suffered frightful agony from rheumatism, before he used the Pills; but our Pills have made him a strong man without an ache in his body, and he walks enormous distances. The same doctors who certified his discharge as incurable have certified him cured and fit for work, and the trade society actually re-admitted him-a. unique case. The object of this is to show the permanency of the cures you effect." Excuse me; it is Dr. Williams' Pink Pilla that effect the cures. We don't doctor people. We will not even examine or see them at our office. But if we are written to (and we are always pleased to have sick people write to us as fully as possible), we will tell them frankly whether cases like theirs have been cured bv Dr. Winiaird Pills before, or not. If we do not think the Pills suitable, we are only too glad to say so, because our business is built up entirely by the recommendation of people who have used our Pills and found benefit from them. We have sruch a large trado that, really, the sale of a box more, or a hundred boxes more, is not to \e cotnmred in importance with the recoru which we hold for fair and candid dealings. We do not fear any amount of investigation; and that is how it is that we have so many good friends among EDUCATED PEOPLE AND THE CLERuY who know we deal honestly with the public. As an example, Dr. Williams Pink Pills cured of spinal disease a girl of Glasgow. Her name is Miss Bell, and she was actually visited by a clergyman, in order to prepare her for death. When she was cured, more than three years ago, the clergyman wrote to us about it, and he 13 kind enough to write to us from time to time. telling us how the girl is getting on. His name .ia the Rev. Samuel Harding, of 7, Firbank-ter- race, Dennistoun, Glasgow. The girl is, and remains perfectly well and strong. "But -with another quiet smile—"I fancy "Tire are getting rather far a.way from the subject -of consumption, and my time is rather limited." Well, about consumption, then. I always supposed that consumption was absolutely fatal." So it is if it gets to the final stage, though we have been told by people even far advanced in consumption that they have pulled up strength wonderfully by using Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. But in some stages, even when specialists and hospitals can only offer palliative treatment, and try to delay tha inevitable, we have good evid- ence that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have actu- tlly effected cures." The manager cited the following, among other cares: Mr. F. Joyce, of 5, Brown's-buildings. West Pottergate-streot, Norwich, raised phlegm every morning which was streaked with biood; his face was blanched, and he lost weight. His breathing was short and pamful, and Mr. Joyce's apprehensions were increased by the fact that HIM FATHER HAD DIED OF CON- SUMPTION. He went to two doctors. Then one morning, to use his own words, "I looked in the Norwich Eastern Daily Press," and there I saw a case of a. consumptive young man who had been spit- ting up blood like myself, and having night sweats, who was cured and restored to rubust health aivl strength by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pals People. I procured a box of these Pills myself, and followed the directions as to taking them, with the result that after taking the con- tents of three boxes I felt as well as I over did in my life." But while feeling so well, Mr. Joyce still had an uncomfortable ii,.prem.en that he was still in consumption, so he sub re I r-ted himself for examination at the Norfolk and Nor- wich Hospital. THE DOCTORS OF THAT GREAT INSTITUTION I declared him to be in a. sound state of health, and refused to supply him with any medicine or enter him upon the bOQb. as he hM no need o! elte,r h?,m u I vr Wilhains' Pink Pills are not like other medicine, nor can they be imitated as is sometimes dishonestly pretended; take cars that the package bears the" fu n nlme," ut. W il- liams' Pink Pills for Pale People, and in case of doubt send direct to Dr. Williams' Medicine Company, 46, Holborn Viaduct, London, L.S., as tha Pills can be had post free at 2s. 9d., or six boxes for 13s. 9d.
