JUST LIKE A QUAKER. A Quaker down South wished to say a straight thing to a fellow who had no reputa- tion for speaking the truth. He addressed him thus: "Friend, I shouldn't like to call thee a liar, but if the Mayor of the town were to come to me and say Friend, find me the biggest liar in the town,' I should come to' thee and say William, the Mayor wants thee. A bit rough. So it was. But per- haps it was well deserved. Mr. Spurgeon says Some men lie as fast as a hosre can trot "—and that's a big rate. He also says If you tell one lie. you have to tell six more c to thatch it." We've always looked upon lying as a losing game. Apart from any moral considerations, it pays to stick to the truth. "Wolf, wolf!" may be shouted once too often. Page Woodcock, of Lincoln, speaks truth, and a lot of it, when he says that for the cure of Indigestion, Liver Complaints, Wind on the Stomach, Sick Headache, Cos- tiveness, Nervous Debility, Palpitation of the Heart, Biliousness, etc., his famous Wind Pills excel all others. Mr. Thos. Hallam writes from 22, Union- street, Stockport: —" I suffered from severe pain in my left side and between my shoul- ders. A few doses of your Wind Pills quick- ly relieved me. I recommend them every- where. I will gladly reply to any inkuiries." Mr. H. was not asked for this statement, neither was he paid for it. It was purely voluntary. Drop him a line and see what he says.-P.W. The Wind Pills being purely Vegetable, Tasteless, and Mild and Tonic in their action, may be taken with perfect safety by the most delicate of either sex. Every hard-driven business man, every tired, weary house-wife, every working man and woman, often prevented by their working conditions from taking sufficient exercise, should take Page Woodcock's Wind Pills. Page Woodcock's Wind Pills are sold by all Medicine Vendors at Is. l^d. and 2s. 9d. post free for price by Page Woodcock, Lincoln.
