A Woman's SnHbrings and
jk. Vo1m; Jinm -VtiHtrln.
Near llic village of Zlllingdnrf, in
Lower Austria, lives Maria llmis, un in
telligent and iudu-triou: woman, who.-e
story of phvslral sutleiing and llmil ic
lief, as related by herself, is of interest
to English women. "I was employed,"
she says, " in the woik of n lnrge farm
house. Over-work brought on sick
headache, followed by a deathly faint,
ing and sicklies of lh"c stomach, until I
wa tillable to ictain cither food or
drink. I was crmpclled to take to my
bed for several weeks. Getting a little
better from test anil quiet, I sought t
do some work, but was soon taken with
a pain in my side, which in a little
while seemed to spread over my whole
body, and throbbed in my every limb.
This was followed by a cough and
shortness of breath, until tlnally'I could
not sew, and I took to my bed for the
second, and, as I thought, for the hist
time. My friends told ne that my time
had Dearly come, and that I eotild not
livo longer than when thetiees put on
their green nco more. Then 1 happen
ed to get one of the Scigcl pamphlets.
I read it, and my dear mother bought
me a bottle of beigel's Syrup, which I
took exactly aceordiug to directions,
and I hud not taken the whole of it be
fore I felt a great change for the better.
My last illness began .lime , 1882, ami
continued to Aujui.-t 0th, when 1 began
to tako the .Syrup. Very soon 1 could
do a little light work. The cough left
me, and I was no more troubled in
b-eathing. Now 1 am perfectly ctued.
And oh, how happy I am ! I cannot ex.
press gratitude enough for Seigel's
Syrup. Now 1 must tell you that the
doctois in our district distributed hand
bills cautioning people against the
medicine, telling them it would do them
no good, and many weic thereby influ
enced to destroy the Scigel pamphlets;
but now, wherever one is to be found, it
is kept like a iclic. The fow preserved
are borrowed to read, and have lent
mine lor six miles around our disttict.
People have come eighteen miles to get
me to buy the medicine for them, know
ing that itemed me, and to be sure to
get the right kind. I know a woman
who was looking like death, and who
told them there was no help for her,
that she bad consulted several doctors,
but none could belp her. 1 told her of
Seigel's Syrup, and wrote the name
down for her that she might make no
mistake. She took my advice and the
Syrup, and now she is in perfect health,
and the people around in are auio.ed.
The medicine has made such pi ogress
in our neighboihood that people say
they don't want the doctor any more,
bat tbey tako the Syrup. Sull'crcrb from
gout who were eontiued to their bed mid
could baldly move a linger, have been
cu-ed bv it. There is ii girl in our, dis
trict who caught a cold by going
through some water, and was m bed five
years with coetiveius and rheumatic
pains, and had to have an attendant to
watch by her. There was not a doctor
in the surrounding districts to whom
her mother had not applied to relieve
her child, hut every one crossed them,
selves and said they could not help her.
Whenever the little bell rang which is
rung in our place when somebody Ih
dead, we thought surely it was for her,
but Seigel's Syrup and Pills saved her
life, and now she is as healthy as any.
body, goes to chinch, and can work
even In the Holds. Everybody was as.
tonished when they saw ber out, know
ing how maay years she had been in
lied. To-day bhe adds her gratitude lo
mine for God's mciclcs and Seigel's
Syrup. Mahia Haas."
The people nt England speak conllrm.
ing the above.

FRIDAY, KKPT. 3, 188G.
THE INSANITY OF GE0RCE III.
Georgo III, who was on tho throne
for flfty-nine vi'ara, and who iliecl nt
the ripu old nge of eighty-two, hntl
no less than live distinct attacks of
Insanity. The first nttnek showed
itself in 17G5, after liu had been on
the throne for live years, when lie
was only twciity-seycn years of nge.
From tliis period until 1810 hu had
relapses, amounting to live nttaeks
in all. lie made, apparently, com
plete recoveries from all these ex
cept Iho last, which occutrcd ten
years before ho died.
These periodical attacks of in
sanity were of short duration, the
average being six months. The
symptoms of the llrst were studi
ously kept from the world nt large
and from the members of his family
and household. During his illness
seven physicians ministered to his
wnnts. Pitt was rather astonished
at having revealed to him some im
portant State secrets from the King.
Ills condition was one of melan
cholia, attended with shedding of
tears and much constitutional mis
chief, lie was irritable; no one
dared to oppose him or contradict
him in anything. Ho did not often
rcalizo his real mental stale, but
would declare that ho was as well as
he had ever been in his life. He
would, without any reason, become
dissatisfied with his Ministers and
draw up a list of fresh ones. Dr.
Warren was his chief' and favored
physician. This eminent doctor
was, in addition to be being the
Hoyat physician, also retained as
medical attendant by the leading
statesmen of the lime Uurke, Fox
ami Sheridan. He was considered
to be the head of his profession.
Dr. Warren, being a general phy
sician, it was ultimately considered
desirable to have a specialist in at
tendance on him. The Rev. Dr.
Francis Willis was chosen for this
object. In addition to ministering
to spiritual wants or his parishoners,
he would try his skill in biain affec
tions, and to such an extent were
his efforts successful that he estab
lished an institution for the care of
the insane, and, having made a
name in that branch of his profes
sion, was chosen as "mad doctor"
to the King. Though at the age of
seventy years when appointed to the
post of medical specialist to George
III, lie fully retained his talents and
faculties to the very utmost, lta man
often thousand, open, honest, daunt
less, light-hearted, innocent and
high-minded." He took up his resi
dence at the palace, being always in
attendance on His Majesty.
The medical treatment was ar
ranged in a morning consultation,
and it was understood by the other
doctors that Dr. Willis was not to
undertake any decided steps in the
treatment of his patient until after
the physicians had mot, the other
doctors visiting in stated order and
rotation. Two surgeons and apothe
caries were also retained, doing
their amount of duty as prescribed.
The medical treatment was purely
of tonic and saline description, the
remedy principally used being cin
chona bark. At the time of which
I write mechanical restraint occu
pied a prominent part in the manage
ment of the insane, and to this now
almost exploded form of treatment
tup King was subjected. There
was nothing, however, in his con
dition which justilied the use of it,
judging from our present view of the
The King himself did not, after
his convalescence, regard the re
straint system as harsh ; for one
day, walking through the palace,
aftor recovery from one of his at
tacks, he remarked : "It is tho best
friend I ever had in my life," allud
ing 10 a straight waistcoat, which
had not been put away. In 1788,
during his second attack, in conse
quence of its length and the ques
tions before Parliament being of tho
most vital importance in their issue,
it was found necessary to draw the
attention of Parliament to' the desir
ability of providing a regency to
manage the state affairs. It was
universally agreed the Prince of
Wales should act as Regent. There
were, however, dissensions between
the Whigs and Tories as to what
powers he should assume jn his
A committee of tho House was
appointed to examine the physieianp,
the reports of such examination
being laid on tho table. A few days
after the committeo sat, tho follow
ing questions being submitted to the
physicians: "Is His Majesty in
capable, by reason of the present
state 'of his health, of coming to
Parliament or of attending to public
business? What hopes are there of
recovery? Is your answer on this
question founded upon the particu
lar symptom of His Majesty's case
or your experience of the disorder
in general? Can you form any judg
ment or probable conjecture 'of the
time His Majesty's illness is likely
to last? Can you assign any caut-u
for his illnpss? Do you see any signs
of convalescence?" The answers
were not on tho wliolo satisfactory,
except the one relating to tho prob'
ability of recovery, which was
answered in the aillrmative.
Tho King did recover, but only (n
liavo a further relapse, and during
this time all public business was i,t
a standstill. Lord Kldon, 'the Lord
Chancellor, an intimate friend of
the King, was held personally re
sponsible for many of tho" strange
actions performed by Ills Majesty
dutiiij. his mental derangement.
This stale of affairs went on until
the (lino of his last seizure in 18J2 ;
though nt limes oven then taking
deep Interest in politics, he was
generally completely mentally in
capacitated. Ho frequently 'shed
tears. He fancied that he was dead,
and one day remarked: "I must
have a suit of black in memory of
George 111, for whom I know there
is a general mourning." Ho talked
to imaginary individuals, and his
memory was a complete blank,
especially for recent events. To

failed him, and in 1820 it was found
impossible to keep him warm, and
