THINGS PERTAINING TO THE HOLIDAYS
Parcels here, there and everywhere. One
is not in the swim at this festive season
when seen on the street unless laden down
with a score of yellow paper packages. It
does not matter what they contain every
body can see the heavily laden man is do
ing his duty, and that is all that is neces
sary. People buy things at this time that
neither they nor anybody else have any
earthly use for. They buy merely from
the effects of contagion. Kow is the har
vest of the express companies, and their
doors are overflowing to the sidewalk.
What a medly of articles can be seen in
the express offices. Packages and boxes of

every size and shape. Live and dead game,
turkeys predominating. Christmas trees,
rockihtborses, velocipedes and a host of
other useful and useless articles. It will
be very difficult to navigate through the
streets until New Year is over.
She Cuts a-TVidc Swath.
A woman with a score of parcels takes up
as much room as she dares without being ar
rested. There is' the shopper who carries
transversely n card board box six feet long,
whose pathway is marked by objurgations
and deposed headgear. Nowhere is the be
laden shopper bo helpless as when passing
through the gateways at the depot. She
gets through merelybythe force ofherwill,
but no.one could guarantee the state of her
parcels after storming the tort Then there
are other lady shoppers whose pathway is
marked by lost packages. They put spools
of thread or some other diminutive pack
age on top of one of their large bundles and
expect it to maintain its equilibrium. Con
sequently some worthy folks miss their
Christmas gifts. A man cannot carry half
as many packages as a woman. Probably
it is woman's pncketless state that has
trained her for such feats. Man tries to
get everything into his pockets.
Occasionally may be witnessed some
comic and pathetie sights in the Christmas
season. There was seen yesterday an old
lady who looked rather impecunious carry
ing home her Christmas turkey.
She Lost Her Turkey.
The streets were slippery and the old lady
fell.hertnrkevslipping into an open grating.
She commenced to bewail her loss, a crowd
collected, and in the generons spirit of the
season they made up a collection enough
to buy her another still fatter turkey, with
cranberry sauce thrown in.
At the depots the parcel fever can be
seen in its full magnificence. The shoppers'
heads can only be seen towe'ring above th
babel of packages when seated waiting for
their trains. One classof people willgladly

hail the finish of the festive season, and that
is the store employes. Christmas is not a
merry season tor them, but a season ot
hard, tiring work. There is no class of
customers so bard to please as the Christ
mas shopper. In many cases she has to
please herself and the recipient of tbe gift
A great many ot the shopkeepers make it a
rule not to exchange Christmas goods dur
ing the holiday season. This saves a good
deal of time and worry on both sides. Peo
ple will wonder when the summer is here
again why they worried so much about the
giving of Christmas presents, and they
mentally vow to take things easier next

A DETROIT MIRACLE.
A GREAT TRIUMPH FOR MEDICAL
Particulars of One of the Most Remark
able Cures on Record Described
by the Detroit News A Story
Worth a Careful Perusal.
Dzthoit, Mich., Dec. 23. A case has Just
come tp light here, tbe-particulars of which
are published In tbe Evening Kews, which
will be read with considerable Interest, as
it records tbe remarkable achievement of a
medical discovery, which has already won
great and enduring fame. The story Is told
by the JVuu as foUows: .
The following paragraph, which appeared'
in the iYetcj a short time ago, furnished tbe
basis of this information a case that was so
wonderfully remarkable that it demanded
further explanation. It is of sufficient im
portance to the Hoof readers to report it
to them fully. It was so important
then thnt it attracted considerable atten
tion at the time. Tbe following is the para
graph In question:
"C. B. Northrop,- for 28 years one of the
best known merchants on Woodward ave
nue, who was supposed to be dying last
spring of locomotor ataxia, or creeping par
alysis, has secured a new leasebf life and
returned to work at his store. The disease
has always been supp osed to be incurable,
but Mr. Northrop's condition is greatly Im.
proved, and it looks now as if the grave
would be cheated of its prey."
Since that time Mr. Northrop has steadily
improved, not only in looks, but in condi
tion, till he baa regained bis old-time
It had been tainted to the writer of this
article, who was acquainted with Mr. Nor
throp, that this miraculous change had
been wrought by a very simple remedy
called Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People. When asked about it Mr. Northrop
fully verified the statement, and not only
so, but he had taken pains to inform any
one who was suffering In a similar manner
when he heard of any such case. Mr.
Northrop was enthusiastic at the result in
his own case of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
It was a remedy that he had beard of after
he had tried everything he could hope to
give him relief. Ho had been in the care of
the best physicians who did all they could
to alleviate this terrible malady, but with
out any avail. He had given up hope,
when a friend in Lockport, N.' Y., wrote
nlm of the case of a person there who hart
heen cured In similar circumstances by Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. The
person cured at Lockport had obtained his
information respecting Dr. Williams' Pink
Fills fiom an article published in the Ham
ilton, Ont., Times. The case was called "The
Hamilton Miracle," and told tho story of a
man in that city who, after almost Incredi
ble suffering, was pronounced by1 the most
eminent physicians to be, Incurable and per
manently disabled. He nad spent hundreds
of dollars in all sorts of treatment nnd ap
pliances only to be told in the end that
there was no hope for him, and that cure
was Impossible. The person alluded to (Mr.
John Marshall, of 25 Llttlo William street,
Hamilton, Out.,) was a member ot the
Boyul Templars of Temperance, and after
having been pronounced permanently
disabled nnd incdrable by the physicians,
was paid the 1,000 disability insurance pro
vided by the order for its members In such
cases. For years Mr. Marshall had been
utterly helpless, and was barely able to
diag himself around his house with the aid
of crutches. His agonies were almost un
bearable and life was a burden to him, when
at last relief came. Some mouths after he
had been paid the disability claim lie heard
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and was induced
to try them. The result was miraculous;
almost from tbe outset an improvement
was noticed, and In a few ' months the
man whom medical expert had said
was Incurable, was going about the city
healthier and stronger than before. Mr.
Marshall was so well known in Hamilton
that all the city newspapers wrote up bis
wonderful recovery in detail, and it ws
thus as before stated, that Mr. Northrop
came into possession of the information that
led to his equally marvelous recovery. One
could scarcely conceive a case more hopeless
than that of Mr. Northrop His injury came
about in this way: Ono day nearly fonr
years ago, he stumbled and lell tbe complete
Ipngth of a steep flight of stalls which wero
at tho roar of his store. His bead and spine
were severely injured. He was picked up
and taken to his home. Creeping paralysis
very soon developed itself, and in spite of
the most strenuous efforts of friends and
physicians tbe terrible affliction fastened
itself upon him. For nearly two years ho
was perrectiy neipiess. lie could uo noth
ing to support his strength in tbo least
effort. He had to be wheeled about in an
Invalid's ohair. He was weak, pale
and fast Finking when thla timely In
formation came that veritably snatched his
life from the Jaws of death. Those who at
that time saw a feeble old man wheeled into
his store on an invalid's chair would not
recognize the man now, so great is the
change that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have
wrought. When Mr. Northrop learned of
the remedy that had cured Mr. Marshall in
Hamilton, and tbe person in Lockport, he
procured a supply of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills through Messrs. Bassett & L'Hom
medleu, 95 Woodward avenue, and from tho
outset lound an improvement. He faith
fully adhered to tbe use of tho remedy until
now he Is completely restored. Mr.Northrop
declares that there can be no doubt as to
Pink Pills being the cause of his restoration
to health, as all other remedies and medic?!
treatment left him in a condition rapidly
going from bad to worse, until at last it
was declared there was no hope for him ard
he was pronounced Incurable. He was In
this terrible condition when he began to use
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and they have re
stored him to health.
Mr. Northrop was asked what was claimed
for this wonderful remedy, and replied that
he understood the proprietors claim it to be
a blood builder and nerve restorer, supply
ing in a condensed form all tbe elements
necessary to enrich the blood, restore shat
tered nerves and drive out disease. It "is
claimed by the proprietors that Pink Pills
will euro paralysis, rheumatism, sciatica,
palpitation of the heart, headache ahd all
diseases peculiar to females, loss of appetite,
dizziness, sleeplessness, loss of memory and
all diseases arising from overwork, mental
worry, loss of vital force, etc.
"I want to say," said Mr. Northrop, "that I
don't have much faith in patent medicines,
but I cannot say too muoh in praise of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. The proprie
tors, however, claim .that they are
not a patent medicine in tbe sense In which
that term is used, but a highly scientlflo
preparation, the result of years of carelnl
-study and experiment on the part of the
proprietors, and the pills were successfully
used in private practice for years before
being placed for general sale. Mr. Northrop
declares that lie Is a living example that
there is nothing to equal these pills as a
cure for nerve diseases. On inquiry tho
writer found that these pills were manu
factured bytDr. Williams' Medicine Co.,
Schenectady, N. Y., and Brockville, Ont.,
and the pills are sold in boxes (never in bulk
by the hundred) at 59 cents a box, and may
be bad of all drngglsts or direct by mail
from Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., from
either above addresses. The price at which
these pills are sold makes a course of treat
ment with them comparatively inexpensive
as compared with other remedies or medi
cal treatment. The case is one ot the most
remarkable on record, and as it is one right
here in Detroit andnot a thousand miles
away, it can be easily verified. Mr. Nor
throp la very well known to the people in
Detroit, and he says be is only too glad to
testify of the marvelous good wrought in
his case. He says he considers it his dnty
to help all who are similarly afflicted by
any word be can say in behalf of tbo Von
derful efficacy of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
If any of the Hews readers want any further
information, we feel sure Mr. Northrop
would willingly oblige them, .as he has
tbe writer In relating these fact to him.
