A Total Disability Claim of $1,650 Paid
to a Man who was Afterward Cured.
Tbe Monitor, a newspaper published
at Meaford, Ont., Canada, first discover
ed this case two years ago, and published
it at length, which now seems, owing to
the cure of it, to be a miracle. The facts
were so remarkable that many people
doubted the truth of them. They said:
“It is to remarkable; it cannot possibly
be true; the paper is mistaken, ami the
man, although he may think himself
cured, will soon relaps into Ms former
condition,” etc. etc. The accuracy of
its report called in question, the Monitor
determined to find out definitely whether
the facts were as stated and whether the
man would really stay cured. They ac
cordingly kept a close watch on the case
for two years after the first article ap
peared, and have just now published

The first acount stated that the patient
(see address below'' had been a paralytic
for five years, that there was such a total
lack of feeling in his limbs and body,
that a pin run full length could not be
felt; that he could not walk or help him
self at all; for two years he was not
dressed; furthermore that he was bloated
was for that reason almost unrecogniz
able, and could not get his clothes on.
The paralysis was so complete as to affect
the face and prevented him from opening

his mouth sufficiently wide to take solid
food. The doctors called the disease
spinal sclerosis, and all said he could
not live.
For three years he lingered in this
condition. Then by some friends he was
advised to take Dr. Williams* Pink Pills
for Pale People. He took them and
there was a slight change. The first
thing noted was a tendency to sweat
freely. This showed there was some
life left in his helpless body. Next came
a little feeling in his limbs. This extend
ed, followed by prickling sensations, un
til at last the blood began to course
freely, naturally and vigorously through
his lx)dy, and tne helplessness gave way
to returning strength, the ability to walk
returned, and he was restored to his old
time health.
The above is the substance of the first
article published by the Monitor. Now
follow some clippings, taken from the
same paper two years afterward, and
there is not the slightest shadow of a
doubt, in view of this tertimony, that
Mr. Petch’s cure is permanent. Here
follows the account:
On being again questioned, Mr. Petch
said: “You see those hands —the skin is
now natural and elastic. Once they
were hard and without sensation. You
could pierce them with a pin and I would
not feel it, and what is true of my hands
is true of the rest of my body. Perhaps
you have observed that I have now even
ceased to use a cane, and can get about
my business perfectly well. You may
say there is absolutely no doubt as to my
cure being permanent. Indeed I am in

even better health than when I gave you
the first interview .”
“Do you still attribute your cure to
the use of Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills?”
asked the Monitor.
“Unquestionably I do,” was the reply.
“Doctors had failed, as had also the
numerous remedies recommended by my
friends. Nothing I took had the slight
est effect upon me until I began the use
of Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills. To this
wonderful medicine I owe my release from
the living death. I have since recom
mended these pills to many of my friends,
and the verdict is always in their favor.
I shall always bless the day I was in
duced to take them.”
Such is the history of one of the most
remarkable cases of modern times. Can
any one say, in the face of such testi
mony, that Dr. Williams* Pink Pills are
not entitled to the careful consideration
of any suffering man womah or child?
Is not the case in truth a miracle of mod
ern medicine?
To make the evidence complete we
publish above a sac simile of the check
received by Mr. Petch from the Canadian
Mutual Life Association, being the
amount due him for total disability. It
is unnecessary to add that this life insur
ance association did not pay this large
amount of money to Mr. Petch, except
after the most careful examination of
his condition by their medical experts.
They must have regarded him as forever

A K»nl Ceremony That Is Not What II
Used to Be.
In the old navy, when United State*
ships were actually ships with yards,
the bos’n’s mate’s call, “All hand*
cheer ship!” was followed by a much
more picturesque ceremony than is pos
sible now, when the vessels of the navy
are fitted with but a single yard and
that only used for signaling. At the
word of command “Man the yards!”
there was an amount of acrobatio scur
rying on the main decks of the old ship*
that was calculated to make the ship
visitor hold his breath, the thing look
ed so dangerous. The men forward in
bluejacket uniform would fairly leap
up the rope ladders, and almost by the
time the echoes of the oommand had
died away every yard on each mast
would support scores of men and boys,
all standing erect, most of them only
held up by the crossed arms of the men
beside them. This representation of a
cross was held by all of the men, and
it was their business to stand thus with
absolute statuesqueness. Then the com
mand “Cheer ship!” would be bawled
out on deck by the ohief bos’n’s mate,
and there would be a yell from oathead
to mizzen that oouldn’t help bnt warm
the blood of everybody within hearing
of it. When the men manned the yards
with all sail except topsails and stunsails
set, such a pioture was really beautiful,
the men’s uniforms of blue standing out
in sapphirelike contrast to the cameo
whiteness of the shrouds. This was a
oeremony on all formal occasions, such
as the visit aboard the old ships of dis
tinguished men. And ’’Mantheyardsl”
and “Cheer ship!” were commands al
ways given when one of the old clippers
of the United States navy was either de
parting for or arriving from a foreign
station.—Washington Star.
How a Clever Tonne Lawyer Got Ont as
Fighting a Dnel.
A good story is told of a young law
yer in this city. One of his first cases
was a claim against a creole gentleman,
who agreed to pay a certain amount
each month. The first of the first month
after the agreement came and went, the
creole gentleman forgetting to remit.
The young lawyer waited several days,
and then wrote a letter. It had one vir
tue—it was emphatic. It was not so
polite as it was emphatic, however, and
within an hour of its delivery to the
creole gentleman two of bis friends call
ed upon the young lawyer with a mess
age, which, freely translated, meant
“You have the privilege of naming the
For a moment the young lawyer was
genuinely alarmed. He had heard that
the creole gentleman was a de«i shot
and equally fatal with the sword. He
wanted to avoid trouble, but did not
feel that the circumstances justified him
in pleading professional privilege whon
be had virtually called a man a beat.
Then there came to his mind that he
had somewhere read that a gentleman
could not grant a duel to any one who
owed him money, and he haughtily said
so to his callers.
They instantly withdrew. An hour
passed. It was an hour of anguish to
the young lawyer. Then there came
again the cards of the two friends of
the offended creolejgentleman. A min
ute Jater they were in the lawyer’s
offioe, and he had written out a receipt
for the full amount of the claim against
theoreole gentleman.
“And now, sir,” said the chief sec
ond of the creole gentleman to the young
lawyer, “what is your answer to our
principal’s demand?”
“My answer, gentlemen, is this: I
formed the hasty conclusion that your
principal did not intend to pay what I
considered a just debt, and I- so ex
pressed myself. He has paid the debt.
I recognize the seriousness of my mis
judgment of him as a gentleman, and I
beg to assure him, through you, that 1
will willingly offer him any apology
which a gentleman may see fit to re
quire of a gentleman.”—New Orleans
