I HOW COLLIERS WORK. I Life in the collieries is acoompaified by many curious experiences and dangers. Volumes have been written descriptive of the collier's life, and we need not turn to works of fiction for remarkable and unusual experiences. The people of the black country have lately been seriously impressed with certain remarkable circumstances in the life of a collier named Ernest Thomas Newman, who lives with his parents in Chapel-street, Halesowen, and is twenty-two years of age. Some two years ago, while working in a damp and unhealthy colliery, he con- tracted a severe cold, which resulted in rheumatic fever. When the fever left him he found himself afflicted wih St. Vitus' dance. He lost entire control over his limbs; his face was covered with disfiguring blotches, gradually extending to his body. Every- thing he took failed to relieve him of the painful complaint. A month or two ago, however, he was advised to try Dr. Williams' pink pills for pale people. They were quite casually recommended, but a box was purchased. He was induced to persevere, and when the first box was finished a second was bought, when the wonderful effects commenced. Before about half the second box had gone he felt the power over his limbs returning, and when the third box had been emptied the blotches had disappeared, his appetite had returned, and he realised the pleasure of returning health. Altogether, he took six boxes of Dr. Williams' pink pills, and to-day is as strong and hearty as any collier in the land. The circumstances of this remarkable cure have been personally investigated by a representative of the Birmingham Weekly Mercury, who was cour- teously received by Mr. Newman's mother. At her call a strong, healthy young man came into the room, and the proud mother introduced him to the pressman ae the almost helpless invalid of a few months before. The reporter suggested that his appearance now did not indicate a very delicate disposition. No," replied Mr. Newman, Pin all right now, although before I took Dp. Williamr pink pills I was ab helpless as a baby. I had no strength, my appetite was dean gone, and my arms and legs were jerking about in all directions. They called it St. Vitus' dance, and it was an uncommonly unpleasant dance. I felt awfully ill, could do no work, and took no interest in anything. As I used the pills, how- ever, I felt stronger, and seemed to get more control over my limbs. My appetite returned, and now I feel as well and strong as ever, working between twelve and fourteen hours a day." Rheumatic fever, like influenza, almost always leaves some other disorder behind it—too often heart- weakness. The remedy best fitted to counteract these dangerous after-effects is Dr. Williams' pink pills which, by their strengthening effect on the nerves and their unique power of enriching the blood, fortify the system against attack by disease. They are unrivalled as a tonic, and as a remedy for the debilitating effects of hot, relaxing summer weather.
