CAUGHT BY THE LEG. STRANGE ACCIDENT TO A CARMAN. So-tth Africa has no monopoly of hairbreadth es- capes, as is shown by a curious accident reported in the Durnley Gazette, which gives a portrait, of the hero. A carter, named Robins, living at Hiliesley, near Wootton-unaer-Edge, went into a wood for fuel, using a long stick with an iron crook to pull down dry branches. Whilst standing in the stump of a tree aud pulling at a branch, the crook straight- ened, and he fell to the ground, with his foot fixed in the stump, causing a fracture of the small bone of the leg and wrenching the ankle-bone. This happened two years ago. For over six months I did not do a stroke of work," said Mr Robins, "as, although mv leg seemed to be set all right, there was always a large quautity of congealed blood rou:id it, and on more i than one occasion the doctor told me I must have my leg off. I did not know what to do, but de- clined to follow his abvice, and trusted to Provid- ence." And so Providence did not betray your trust ? remarked tho reporter. No," was the reply. When I was almost en- s tue.y broken down in health and hops from the fact. that the treat,ment in two hospital had not cured my leg, a book came through the post telling me ofuhe many wonderful cares Dr Williams' pink pills for L pale people had brought about. Though I had tried i other medicines without any effect, I thought I would give them a trial, so I purchased a Cuupie of t. boxes. Of course the broken bone had long sitico untied I should not have expected medicine to effect that. It was the subsequent pain I could uot get rid of, but before 1 had taken one boxful of the £ pills named I was stronger in myself, my leg was F better, and the palpitation of the heart which I had been suffering from qnite disappeared." illrs Renins here joined in the conversation, remarking: "Airs Cox, of Boxvvell Lodge, recom- mented me to induce him to try them, as she had found them so valuable herself." The good wife also related with evident excite- ment that, after having taking three boxes of Dr Williams' pink pilJs, her husband one day came in and danced round the house, shouting, "Good old Dr Williams; he has cured my leg and put me i right." He quite frightened the cnildreu," con- tinned Mrs Robins, "and after that he continued to take the pills, saving he icould have his pills if he didn't have bread. He took six boxes of Dr Wil iiams' pink pills altogether, and I now give them to my children when they are not well." It is not, of course, suggested that this remedy is an alternative treatment for the surgeon's art; the lesson taught by the above incident is the same as that learned by the thousands of people in brok- en health, who have had their whole after-lives changed by this simple medicine. In Mr Robins' case, Dr Williams' pink pills restored tone to the nervous system, and enriched the enfeebled blood. Acting the same way these pills have cured thou- sands of cases of antcmia, general weakness, loss of appetite, palpitation, shortness of breath, early decay, all forms of female weakness, hysteria, para- lysis, locomotor ataxy, rheumatism, sciatica, scorfu- la, rickets, chronic erysipelas, consumption of the bowels and lunga,. These pills are a tonic in action, and not a purgative; but they are genuine only with full name, Dr Williams' pink pills for pale people (seven words), and are sold by most retail- ers, and Dr illiams' Medicine Company, Holboru Viaduct, London, at two shillings and ninepence a box, or six boxes for thirteen and nine, post free. They invigorate the system after overwork, worrv, and indiscretion of living.
