THIS WILL SETTLE THE QUESTION. I don't believe there is a word of truth in it." That's the way certain foolish people talk when they hear of anything unusual, or outside the limits of their own observation or experience. They are of the sort who laughed at Stephenson when he introduced the railway, and at Morse when he said that we could communicate by means of electricity. Yet they don't laugh at those things now. They make use of them daily. Some months ago the case of Mrs. Mary Cuddy was first published. The great public accepted the facts, as they had every reason to do. Others, a very few (professional men perhaps) pretended to doubt, and sent emissaries to inquire of the lady herself whether her allegations had not been added to, or altered, for the sake of popular effect. Here is her answer! She repeats what she at first said, and puts a quietus on all who called her words in question. It will be observed that her statement is as plain and solemn as language can make it. [COPY.] I, Mary Cnddy, of 28, Catherine Street, Rich* mond Road, Leeds, do solemnly and sincerely declare as follows:— Ever since I was a girl I have suffered from ill- ness. I always had a pain both before and after eating, and never seemed able to gain and keep my strength, and felt that something was pulling me down. I had a nasty queer feeling in my stomach. Sometimes food seemed to ease it, and at other times it made me feel worse, and often I went without food, for I was afraid to eat. Com- monly when food was placed before me I could not touch it, and I often fainted at the very sight of it. After a while I became so weak I could scarcely stand or walk. I thought it was con- sumption coming on by degrees and I took all sorts of medicines to try and get relief, but it was of no use, and I got tired of taking physic, for I had lost all faith in it. My business was so urgent that I was compelled to be at work, otherwise I would have laid in bed, so weak had I become. With the weakness and loss of appe- tite there were other feelings and signs that were bad and alarmed me greatly. Among them were these:—A yellowish colour of the skin and eyes, sometimes a cold clammy perspi- ration, pains and aches in the sides, the chest and back, headache, a kind of wind or gas coming up into my throat and mouth that was so sour and sickening I could scarcely bear it. Once in a while I would have a strange fluttering and pal- pitation that made me think my heart must be affected. My heart would thump so that I feared it would jump out of its place, and I have had to walk about the room for two or three hours at a time, for I could not sit or lie. The pain was so severe that I have asked my husband if he could not hear my heart thumping as I walked about I alwaysslept badly fit night, nd frequently had horri- ble dreams, and was so melancholy and depressed in spirits that I would sit down and cry, for I got no pleasure as time dragged wearily by. I had so little energy or strength that it was all I could do to summon courage for the ]abonr upon which the family (at least in part) depended for support. I am a dressmaker, and it will be easily understood how hard my life was, for I didn't think it would last much longer. Not long ago (May, 1887) I made up my mind to try a medicine that is advertised and known all over the country. I mean Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup. I had no faith in it at first, for how can one believe in what one knows nothing about ? I bought and tried Mother Seigel s Curative Syrup only because of its repu- tation. How could so many people, I asked my. self, praise a medicine so much if it had no virtue. I can only say that I found what they said to be true. After beginning with tho Syrup, relief soon followed. My food digested better and gave me strength, and by persevering with it all my pains disappeared. I could eat my food with a relish, and everything agreed with me. Now and again when, through confinement and hard work, I feel a touch of my old complaint I take a dose or two of Seigel's Syrup and the trouble goes no further. Since the publication of my testimonial many persons have called at my house and asked me if all that is published about my case is true, and if the Proprietors of Seigel's Syrup had made additions to my statement. I told them all that every word was true and nothing had been added by the Proprietors of the mcdicine, but I could add a good deal more, for no words can describe what my sufferings were during all those long years. I never expected being well r?am in this world. Seigel's Syrup saved mv life and I desire other sufferers to know of what did so much for me. I will gladly answer inquiries. And I make this solemn declaration conscientiouslv believing the same to be true: by virtue of the pro", visions of the Statutory Declaration Act (Will 62. ) p.. „ (Signed) MARY CCDDT, e^clared before me at Leeds, in the County of York, by the said Mary Cuddy, on Monday, the 10th day of August, 1891. f (Signed) ALF COOKE, ■vt Mayor of Leeds.
