REV. N. WAYNE WOLCOTT
Interviewed by the Reporter for
He Tells of His Recovery from an Illness that
Threatened to Incapacitate Him. Is now Able
to Attend to His Duties. Has Nothing but
Words of Praise for the Remedy Used.
From the Independent, Auburn, N. Y.
It having come to the knowledge of the
ditor of the Cayuga County Independent of
Auburn, that Eav. N. Wayne Wolcott, Paa
tor of Baptist Church, of Fleming, N. Y.,
had been cured of nervous prostration by
the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People, he sent n reporter to that town to
certain from Hr. Wolcott the truth of
the report, and receive from his own lips a
statement of his case and how he had been
The reporter found Mr. Wolcott to be a
gentleman some 40 or 45 years of age, in
good health, and active in his ministarkl
duties. He is highly esteemed as a pastor
and a citizen, and is a gentleman of strict
Integrity, whose statements can be implicitly
relied upon as truthful in every respect and
devoid of exaggeration. In reply to ques
tions as to the truth of the report that he
had been benefited by Pink Pills be made
the following statement : " Eight years ago
while pastor of the Baptist Church in Covert,
N. Y., I was stricken with nervous prostra
tion. During the winter of 1887-8, I had
conducted revival services and delivered a
series of lectures in addition to ray work as
pastor and became completely ruu down.
I could not work, and felt as though ray
days were numbered. I tried a doctor, but
did not receive much aid from him.
At this time I received a call from the
church at Tully, N. Y. At first I determined
not to accept it, for I knew that in my weak
condition I could not do the work. But hoping
against hope I finally decided to try and ac
cordingly went there. My health continued
to fail and I grew weaker, and I thought I
would have to give up entirely my work for
God, which I love. Just then, however, the
un broke through the clouds. Mr. rail
man, of Tully, whom I shall always re
member as a benefactor, recommended me
to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. He had
tried them and thev had (lone him good. As
a last resort I tried them. The effect was
wonderful and immediate. From the very
first box my system began to tone up, my
blood became rich, ami once more l became
the strong and vigorous man I was before
my health laiied.
''My labors, if you know of the labors of
a country parson, you can reauny ncneve,
were very heavy. I had not been able to
work, and was losing my interest la the
cause of Christ, but like magic my old vi'or
returned and lor three more years 1 labored
there and raised $4,000 toward building up
the Church in addition to my regular duties.
All ray friends say of me that I am a very
hard working man, out in covert i eouia
not work. After I went to Tully and the
pills had restored my health, I think I may
My mat 1 merucu unit iinmc. rut uiivc yi
four years after I left Tully I did evangelistic
work. Two years aero I came here. Since
then I have never had any return of my old
trouble, but am in good health, strong and
active, witjs no symptom of nervous pros
tration, which was caused by overwork. It
is a homely expression, but I felt like a
'wrung-out dish-cloth without any starch
" I owe my present good health to Pink
Pill, and want most heartily to commend
the magic remedy to every one troubled with
nervous prostration or physical weakness."
Afla Darting remark Mr. Wolcott said: "I
have often thought that in return for what
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have done for me,
I would like to Income h medical missionary
to make known their merits."

DRS. KENNEDY & KERGAN, SgSff-
A MICHIGAN MAN'S ENTHUSIASTIC ENDORSE
MENT OF DR. WILLIAMS' PINK PILLS.
From the Timet and Expositor, Adrian, Mich.
Mr. Simpson is the pwner of the Simpson
Block on Main Street and a prominent young
man of Morencj, Michigan.
In the spring id 1W.H, Mr. Simpson's health,
which had heretofore been characterized by
the utmost ru wdness, began slowly, at first
almost unnotieeably to fail him. The first
symptom he experienced was an unaccount
able loss of his appetite. His weight, which
had averaged 175 pounds for a number of
years, began slowly to decline. He became
a subject of the blues and bis days were made
miserable by an almost constant headache.
As the case progressed the symptoms be
came more marked, plainly indicating a
radical disorder ot the functions, lie be
came enervated und depressed, his skin
became dry and harsh, a heavy, drag
ging pain in the region of the kidneys
strongly pronounced the nature of the
trouble kidney disease, although repeatedly
Me consulted and was treated by expert
medical men, and at periods felt better.
The encouraging changes, however, were
deceptive. lie lost hope, believing himself
to be on the verge of an invalid's life. His
admirable physique and great endurance
resisted for a time the encroachment of the
disease. But the struggle seemed hopeless.
Although cognizant of a remarkable cure
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills had performed
in this locality, indubitably proving their
great efficacy and virtue, he had little
raith of their helping him. Nevertheless, he
purchased a bole of the pills and began tak
ing them. At first he noticed no change in
his daily condition, but as he continued the
use of the pills he became convinced that
there was a change, and that change together
with a resume ot his complete restoration to
health is better told in his words:
" I determined to give them a thorough
trial and ascertain their true merits. At the
commencement I was fast Hearing a physi
cal wreck, pain racked, and strongly tempted
at times to end my miserable existence, nut
after I had taken the first box of Dr. Wil
liams' Pink Pills I could not help but feel,
and my friends but notice the change that
had occurred. My periods of depression
were growing less frequent and I began
enjoying instead of dreading my night's rest.
' Could it be possible that a permanent
change for the better had occurred ? It seemed
too good for me to build hopes upon, yet I
was surely improving miraculous it seemed.
I continued using tne pills and during the
succeeding weeks I gained rapidly and with
convalescence came joy. The road to re
covery is a suiiKhiny one. no fears, no dis
couragements, no more depression, a keen
and delightful realizing that once more
health is near at hand, and health," he said
impressively, "is everything."
" Do you enjoy as good health now as you
did before- your sickness?" queried the re
porter. "Yes, sir. I am strong, have a hearty
appetite and enjoy sound, refreshing sleep.
But I keep the pills ever at hand, and," he
continued, "I firmly believe that bad it not
been for them I would not be here to-day. I
owe my life to them and am ever ready to
voice my most grateful praise in favor of
their wonderful merits."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, in a con.
denied form, all the elements necessary to give
new lift' and richness to the blood and restore
shattered nerves. They are an unfailing sne
cific for such diseases as locomotor ataxia, par
tial paralysis, St. Vitus' dance, sciatica, neu
ralgia, rheumatism, nervous headache, the
after effect of la grippe, palpitation of the
heart, pale and sallow complexions, all forms
of weakness either in male or female. Pink
Pills are sold by all dealers, or will be sent

THE FIRST SNOWFALL.
The snow had begun In the gloaming.
And busily all the night
Had been heaping field and highway
Wtth a sllenoe deop and white.
Bvory pine and nr and hemlock
Wore ermine too dear for an earl.
And the poorest twig on the elm tree
Was ridged Inch deep with pearl.
From sheds new roofed with Carrara
.Game chanticleer's muffled crow,
The stiff rails were softened to swansdown
And still flattered down to snow.
I stood and watched by tho window
The noiseless work of the sky,
And the snddon flurries of snowbirds,
Like brown leaves whirling by.
I thought of a mound in sweet Auburn
Whore a little headstone stood;
How tho flakes were folding it gently
Aa did robins the babes in the wood.
Up spoke our own little Mabel,
Saying, "Father, who makes it snow?"
And I told of the good All-Father
Who cares for us here below.
Again I looked at the snowfall
And thought of the leaden sky
That arched o'er our first great sorrow
When that mound was heaped so high.
I remember the gradual paltence
That fell from that oloudllke snow,
Flake by flake, healing and hiding
The scar of our deep plunged woe.
And again to the child I whispered.
"The snow that husheth all.
Darling, the merciful Father
Alone can make it fall."
Then, with oyes that saw not, I kissed her,
And she, kissing back, could not know
That my kiss was given to hor sister,
Folded close under deepening snow.
. James Russell Lowell
"It's no use trying, " said Phemie.
"Mother bates me, and everything I do
Li wrong. "
"Your mother can't help it, Phe
mie, " said Dr. Jasper. He was the new
medioal man, in huge favor with Mra
AlbatrosH, Phemie's mother.
" Your mother is highly strong quite
a woman of genius, and allowances
must be made for her temperament, my
dear young lady. Temperament rules
Indeed, Mra Albatross' temperament
seemed' to rule Dr. Jasper, the parson,
the squire, the parish, but it did not
"Look here, " said the girl she was
just past 20 "you and mother are al
ways croaking about me, I know, but
yon do nothing to help me. At least I
think you would, but you're afraid"
"Your mother used to take an inter
est in you, but you did not meet her
half way. Is not that so?"
"No, it isn't When I was 16, she
had a fad of dressing me up in last cen
tury costume and making a doll of me
not mytBtyle at all just to show off
her own cleverness and queerness at my
expense. She said I was ngly and only
dressing could make me fit to be seen."
"Well?" said Dr. Jasper, who was a
rising young medioo of 80, as ho looked
gravely and judicially at tho pretty
much tried girL who only half believed
in his good will.
"Well," said Phemie. "every one
laughed, and I showed mother I would
not stand it "
' 'Then she packed mo off to school.
The mistress said I was sort of dazed
for a time, as if I had been ill treated
and so I had and quite neglected, but
they were kind to me there, and I was
very happy for more than a year, except
in the holidays, which were always odi
ous. Then you oame along" And
Phemie paused and stole a doubtful
glance at the doctor.
"What then?" said the doctor, like a
person coldly inquiring for ordinary in
formation, yet with a certain little
twinkle in his eye which did not escape
the aggrieved Phemie.
"Then," said the girL "I thought
you were my friend at first, bet I don't
now. At least"
At this moment Mrs. Albatross en
tered, and, turning sharply on Phemio,
aid with a snap, "I suppose yon
haven't fed tho fowls or sorted tho lin
en or done anything bnt idle away your
time, as usual?"
"I was called when Dr. Jasper came
because you could not be found. "
' 'I'm sick of your excuses. Dr. Jas
per does not want to see you. " Then,
in quite an altered tone, as Phemie
shrank away out of tho room: "Do
you mind coming up to my sitting
room? I want to havo a talk with you
about those changes at the infirmary. I
am sure you will agree with mo and
yon will be most useful. We can't al
low things to go on, " etc.
Dr. Jasper always did agree with
Mrs. Albatross, but somehow he mold
ed her, and she usually came round to
his opinion. He listened and she talked.
He could wait, and when he had taken
her bearings without ever interrupt
ing or contradicting she listened and
he talked, and not then, but next time,
she echoed his opinions and fancied
thoy were all her own.
"It is such a comfort to find a sensi
ble man to talk to in a stnpid place like
this," said she, laying her arm con
fidingly upon the doctor's as he sat
smiling and agreeing with her.
Mrs. Albatross had worried one hus
band Into the grave she was too clever
for him but her intellectual vivacity,
imagination and enterprise made her
an interesting companion. She was
only a little past 40, and very well pre
served, and she meant to marry Dr.
Whether it was hypnotism or will
power the doctor came again and again
and would not send in his bill, and the
doctor's hill never was paid. He paid
"Don't speak tome, "said Phemie
hurriedly as she mot the dootor coming
down stairs after a long confab with
her mother. "Mother's about She's
out all tomorrow afternoon. I've got to
paint the doors" And Jasper passed
oat with a sympathetic smile. She
knew he would call and advisn her
about pairnting the doors. BfrjdidtoaU.
"Whut a donl you know about mix
ing paints und tilings l I'm sure I want
good advice a great deal more than
mother does But, then, I'm not olever
liko mother," added Phemie, with a
little aggrieved pout. 1 'So it's not worth
while talking to roe."
"I do foel for you," said the dootor,
with an unusual warmth of manner.
"I have done all I could to get your
mothor to bo fair to you, Phemie" he
had never called her Phemio before,
and she felt her color rise. "What's the
matter?" he added hastily, for sudden
ly Phemie's eyes filled with tears, and
he just went off then and there and
left the paint pots and things without
saying another word.
Dr. Jasper's visits became more fre
quent. Mrs. Albatross was constantly
seen about the village with him. They
met in cottuges. She was dovoted, so
she said, to nursing the sick. It was
certainly a new development She wus
never seen with her daughter, nor was
Jasper, but he saw her daughter oftener
than she knew. Still it seemed less and
less possi hie totdo without Mrs Alba
tross. Her ability, her cooked foods and
port wine for "cases," her influence
with tho squire, who disliked and
obeyed her; with tho parson, whoso
good will wus importunt to the dootor
and who wns afraid of Mrs. Albatross,
for sho brow bout him in the chair at
parish meetings, picked holes in his
sermons and organized tho penuy read
ings, which he disliked, under his very
nose ull this and a good deal more
for Mrs. Albatross was a woman and
not ahove feminine arts put Jasper in
rather a tight place.
Ho knew that Mrs Albatross wanted
to marry him, and there wero days
yes, whole days when he really thought
he should bo obliged to marry Mrs. Al
The moment came. It was in the lit
tie sitting room np stairs.
Something had happened. Dr. Jasper
saw that plainly enough.
The lady was flushed and excited,
and ho missed the usual confidential
"I I wanted to see you, "she said
and paused. ' ' Nothing has oomo to your
ears, I suppose?"
The doctor looked inquiringly.
"Well, then, I'm dreadfully troubled,
annoyed beyond measure, put out Of
course, you know my maid, Susan. She
has been with me ten years and is not
"What on earth do you mean? Do be
plain. Surely with me you might be
quite plain. " And he moved a little
nearer, feeling at that moment a curious
kind of attraction which almost com
pelled him to lay his hand upon her
arm and force hor to be quito honest
"Don't keep me on tenterhooks," he
said eagerly. "Tell me!"
"I will," said tho lady. "I feel
can tell you anything. I don't think I
have any other friend in the world at
least, not like you. No one understands
mo, no one has helped me ns you have,
and we've got to part That is all"
"What on earth," said Jasper, really
shaken and troublod ho had never seen
her grow pale like that or her lips
quiver like that, and she was not of
tho crying sort, and she did not cry now
"what what has Susau beeu say
"Only that it's all over the place,
and that she thought at last she ought
to tell me"
"You don't mean, yon don't mean"
He couldn't quite say it
"Yes, I do," she said. And sho rose
and walked up aud down the room full
of a sort of angry vexation, mingled
evidently with a conflict of passionate
feeling sho could neither conceal nor
"Sit down," ho said. Ho had risen
He took hor arm. She was positively
trembling. He led her to the sofa by
"I shall have to leavo this place,"
she said in n sort of hard voice. The
angry tears came into her oyes. He had
novor seen her weep. This was the
nearest approach to it
"I know what you are going to say
Don't say it No, you shan't go. Yon

your sphere. I am the marplot.
"Why should you go?" said Jaspor,
hardly measuring his words. "Why
should either of us go? Why not stay
and stay stay together?"
"Yon don't mean it?" Mon at such
times are more fools than knaves.
"Yes, yes I do."
Jasper had taken her hand. Tho wo
man with the iron will, tho keen mtol
leot, tho natnro self contained, which
seemed at times as hard as nails, turned
toward him and in another moment fell
crying and laughing hysterically into
his arms. At that moment, as ill luck
would have it, Phemio, hearing unusual
sounds and thinking somo ono needed
"Go and fetoh some sal volatile. Your
mother is not very well. " Indeed, at
that moment Mrs. Albatross seemed to
have really fainted away. Whether she
fainted or not no one will ever know.
The dootor himself was doubtful.
