CHAT WITH A FAHOUS FOOT-1 BALLER. I Mr John Robertson, a miner, is one of the leading players in the Shettleston Swifts Football Club. At his house at Barrpcknie, near Glasgow, he told a story interesting to all footballers. He said, I am 26 years of age, and at the age of 20 I was a prominent member of the football club. One day I was engaged in a match, and I sustained a nasty twist, which I think I got by my trying 'to save myself. 1 came home from the match, and I felt a stinging pain ia my back, but like all football play- ers paid no heed to it, thinking that I would be all right in a few days. But I jr' t so bad that I 1 d to cease work ande the doctors—J had 1011r- /but my case baffled them. A lump came on my back like a marble. The doctor shook his head and said, 'Poor lad, you have spinal disease, and I would advise you to go into the infirmary.' Well, I was sent to the Glasgow Infirmary, and by this time I could only just crawl about. The pain I suffered was beyond description. Sir, I lay for eighteen weeks in the infirmary, and after that they despatched me home as incurable. My folks were communicated with, and poor John Robertson was driven home to die! My jaws were sunken, my legs were merely bones covered with skin. Wbat'wastodone? The highest skill in the infirmary had ^been baffled » I WAS AN INCURABLE. My mother, there, spent £ 150 in trying to get me cured. But, to continue my story," said Mr Robert- son, the doctors plainly said, Your case id qui ;e incurabla.' At night, I lay moaning. My limbs were powerless, but I had my faculties, and when lying in bed there was always leaping into my mind an article I had once read in a newspaper about Dr Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People curing a man at Lochgilphead, Argyllshire. I remembered that he too had a hump growing on his back, and I was wondering and wondering if I shouldn't give Dr Williams' Pills a chance. I lighted upon the case of Little Nell' in Glasgow, and I read every detail of her suffering eagerly, and when I had come to the last word of it, I hrew up my hands and cried Yes, that's my case! I'll give Dr Williams' Pink Pills; a trial.' I sent for several boxes, and I negan with two Pills after every meal, then I tried three, and, though Ijj had no power in my legs, I suddenly felt a spring come into them, just as if theI blood were returning to them. I felt a sensation of life returning to my limbs, and for three months I persisted, taking the Pills regularly. I got to be able to stand between two chairs. Then one day I was able to let my whole weight go upon my legs, and I managed to walk half a yard with my hands resting on the top of the chairs. In a day or two I was able to walk the length of the room. After a while I was able to walk on crutches; but even them I was soon able to abanden. And, sir, it was Dr Williams' Pink Pills, and them alone, which wrought the marvellous chaa^e in my case. And you are still able to take a walk now ?" "Walk! Why, on Saturday I tramped seven miles, and could have gone twice the dis- tance." Mrs Robertson added: "Yes, sir. Dr Williams' Pink 'PiUs saved my son's life. Had it not been for them ne would have been away to a land where suffering is uuknown." To show you that I can walk," Mr Robertson added, I shall be happy to accompany you to the railway station." He walked faster than the reporter who had interviewed him, and ou the way said 11 There is another friend of mine who was hurt at sea, and lost the power of bio lower limbs. He was home a year. Then he commenced to take Dr Williams Pink Pills, and now he is back to sea, and as strong as ever he was."
