THE ENRTNER OF PT-JTPS AND OF MEN. To ihe month of March, I !i<; •■rent ;md beantifa* steamship City of Pari?,' whun mi ner vovagt, from New York to Liverpool,met with nnaccidents by which her engines were completely disabied. •naving her helpless on tho sea Sijcarried &. large number of passengers, and great, anxiety wns felt concerning hor, in Europe and America. 1Jow she was finally towed into QueeiistcwTi Har. wiil be remembered by the public. "Well, what of it?" yon say. "They after- wards found out how it happened, and repaired th0 engines, and no lives were lost." Very true, but wait a moment. Because you never go to sea, do you think the Mndden destruc- tion of a ship's engine has no losson for you? How shortsighted men are! Did you ever He on your bod at home, or on a cot in a hospital, help- less ns a log P What ailed you? Some disease. What is disease ? It is an accident to yourvital 'nachinery. What do the doctors try to do for yon? To cure you. Yes, of course. Suppose we say "repair" yon; it conncs to the same Uiing; for we are kept alive and going by certain organs or eng'nes inside the body. When they are out of or ler, and work badly, we are ill when they stop, we die. Do you see the force of he illustration ? Sometimes a man's machinery is never right om the hour of his birth. Here is a short storr me man tells about himself, which will show -vvh;it> ■ve mean. lie savs One ship is never weak he- cause another is; but a baby may be weak because i's parents weie, or some other of its ancestors, it is spoken of in the family tlial, when I was an I did nothing but sleep. Now, a healthy ) in ant ought to sleep most of the time, but not ail. ;i thoii'ne. lie should laugh, play, cry, kick, and J take, notice of things. My mother was bothered 1 al.O'it i*. and saw the doctor, who said if was owing | ■ to Mie sl'ii'gish state of my liver. Nevertheless, I j ii v'. tl and g cw up as millions of children do. Hut- f inherited disease makes its mark sooner or later, J ■ ccor iing to circumstances. I About five years ago I began to feel bad. I iidn'r, know what was the matter with ine- I had 'i bad taste in my month, a sii:nv tongue, and felt, nIli'lano tired, and had no ambition for work. I Mv appetite failed, and when I did eat, under a, oru of compulsion, I had great pain alter it. I vent on in thi way until the spring of ISSS. •vneu I had a verv severe attack, and was treated, in Bartholomew's Hospital for some time. But I ■amo out still weak, and a little later on I was s<> '>ad I broke down completely, and took to my bed. -la t to; s now looked very serious for me. The first doctor who came to see me was not- ;ble to give any relief, and my people fe; chell. another, as my condition had becomr nin-minq. I got worse, and was in great ajnnv. 1 had pains- j all over me, but more particularly in th" bowels, where the pain was intense. The bowe's wcw stopped or constipated, and the doctor seemed puzzled. One day he said, I camiot account, for [tour condition.' I now began to think what wa* !j best to be done. Yet what, could I do ? |j I had hoard of a medicine called Mother j Seigel's Curative Syrup, which was said to be a. [, most remarkable cure for deep-seated and chronic :] complaints wb-ov all other remedies were unavail- ing, bnt 1 had never tried it, and why should I j: believe in it ? Yet how strangely we arc some- times le-i into paths .we have never travelled be- fore! Abont this time I picked up a newspaper, and' n id of a. case similar to my own that had been. ci:rt-tl — so the writer said—by Mother Seigel's. Syrup. T decided to risk it, and sent over to Mr.. Dyer, the chemist, in Acre Lane, West Brixton,. and got a bottle, and in ten minute* after taking- the first dose I felt relief. In my excitement and satisfaction I declared,. Thi* the rinht thitvi! "After taking six bottles I found myself in. perfect health. I am a new man. I never was in bettor health in my life, and all the members of" my family think of my cure as all the more won- derful owing to my having suffered with liver complaint from my infancy. I will gladly answer any inquiries about Mother Seigel's Syrup, and. what it did for me." (Signed) W. Golospink. 126, Acre Lane, Brixton, and 19, Tachbrook Street, Pimlico. Mr. Goldspink is a pork butcher, and is well known and highly respected. In addition to his inherited weakness of the liver he suffered from deep-eeated indigestion and dyspepsia, with an acuto attack of constipation, a dangerous and often fatal complication. For this almost univer- sal r-tala,ly-cften mistaken for other diseases Seigel's Syrup is the only remedy to be relied upon.
