GREA r WESTERN ENGINE- DRIVER IN DANGER, Manly Conduct of a Doctor. Engine-drivers have many narrow escapes, of which the publio never bearg nor are their dangers confined to the active risks of their calling. The South Wales Daily Star newspaper brings to light an interesting citse, which illus- trates this. It appears that a Mr John South, of 36, St. Michael-street, Newport, Monmouth, was for many years an engine-driver on the Great Western Railway, but he retired from active duty on reacliiug his sixtieth year in good health. About a year ago, however, be was taken suddenly ill. I always felt thoroughly tired out," said he, and I had severe pain at the small of my back, AS well as pains in the back of my head and side of my face." His sufferings were very severe, and after two or three weeks he went to a very able doctor for them, and also for a very violent cold which he had contracted. The doctor gave him medicine for the cold, but informed him that the pains in i* head were rumbling rheumatics," and that he really could do nothing at all to cure them. In consequence of this candid and manly admis- sion, the doctor only paid him a couple of visits. The pain seemed to get worse, and though nob actually confined to his bed, he was unable to get about or do work of any description. He kept a look-out in the papers for anything which might bring relief, and shortly after read an account of the public attention excited by the oures effected by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People in cases very similar to his own. He procured a box, and followed religiously the instructions. When half the box. or perhaps a little more, had been taken, the pains began to get easier, the spasms in the face being neither so frequent nor so severe. This result encouraged him to con- tinue, and the improvement was rapid and continuous, until by the time he had taken about two and a half boxes he was completely cured, and felt as well as he ever did in his life, not. withstanding his 60 years. Since that time he has felt only slight twinges of rheumatics, and a single pill has always proved sufficient to subdue them. Mr South said he thought the Pills a wonderful medicine. He always kept a box in the house that they rnighi be at hand, in case a tonic should be needed, and would not be without them for anything. He was now able to get aboub and work, and was surprisingly active. Mr South showed a prudent precaution in keeping the Pills ab hand in case of need, for though Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are not lilce other medicines, and their effects are permanent, nothing else is so prompt in pulling up the system when, from some temporary depression or other- wise, strength is needed. They have cured more than hve thousand cases, besides Mr South'a, of nervous exhaustion, rheumatism, sciatica, muscular weakness, depression, loss of appetite, palpitation of the heart, headache, early decay, paralysis, and locomotor ataxy also all diseases arising from impoverished and vitiated Uobd, such as scrofula, rickets, St. Vitus' dance, and chronic erysipelas, pale and sallow complexion, anaemia, wasting diseases like consumption, and the ailments of ladies. These Pills are not a purgative medicine. They contain nothing that could injure the most delicate system. They are old by chemists, and by Dr. Williams' Medicine Company, 46.
