LIAMS' PINK PILLS.
Mrs. Ream's Daughter Began to Gain
Flesh at Once, and is Now
Well and Happy.
Children are doubtless punished
many times at school for not keeping
Mill or for dropping things when tbe
trouble is really chorea, or St. Vitas
JJance. as It is popular- called. So
common is this nervous disease in
childhood that in some schools one-
fifth of all the pupils have been found
suffering from it in one form or an
Before the presence of the disease is
betrayed there is usually a disturbance
of the generaj health. The child shows
listleseness and inattention. Then it
becomes restless and twitching of the
muscles and jerking of the limbs and
body follow. ,
Often the patient loses flesh and be
comes pale and bloodless. A remedy
that cures St. vitas' Dance, and cures
it so thoroughly that no trace of the
disease remains, is Dr. Williams Pink
A recent cure is that of Georgia, the
10-year-old daughter of Mrs. D. M
Ream of Conemaugh, Pa. Mrs. Ream
"When Georgia started to school last
year she had stomach trouble and af
terward her mouth began to twitch.
She would shake all over and could
not be still. After a few months her
mind became affected.
"She .was under the care of two
doctors for almost four months. When
she had been sick for about seven
months we heard of a case like Geor
gia'a that had been cured by Dr. Wil
liams' Pink Pills. It was in the latter
part of February that she commenced
to take the pills and they made the
greatest change In her. They not only
cured -every trace of the St. Vitas'
Dance, but helped .her in every way
She never was very stout until after
she took the pills, but now she ha
gained in weight. She goes to school
every day and is well and happy. Dr.
Williams Pink Pills are worth their
weight in gold."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills build up the
blood to carry health and strength to
every part of the body. They have
cured the worst cases of bloodlessness,
indigestion, influenza, headaches, lum
bago, sciatica, nenralgia, nervousness,

Coasting Accident. Misfortune has
again overtaken Harold Eastman, son
of Mr. and Mrs. E. L.. Eastman. While
coasting down the E. H. Sleight hill
at tbe head of Eighteenth street, tbe
boy's sled collided with severe impact
with a tree, and by the narrowest mar
gin it seemed Harold escaped instant
death. The accident occurred during
the noon hour. Had Harold been
thrown directly In the wake of the sled
he would have struck the tree head
first. But happily Tnis course through
the air was diverted somewhat from
the tree, and only his ear brushed the
bark. The force of the collision was
borne by the boy's shoulders, and so
sharp was it that he was rendered un
conscious. Attorney C. E. Dietz car
ried the boy into the residence of C.
R. Stephens, and Dr. Wessel was sum
moned. It was thought for a time tnat
Harold was paralyzed, but it developed
that his chief injury was a badly
sprained "back which .will keep him io
bed for some days.
