*• I am so nervous, there is not a well inch in my whole body. lam so weak at my stomach, and have indigestion horribly, and palpitation of the heart, and lam losing flesh. This headache and backache nearly kills me, and yes- terday I nearly had hysterics; there is a weight in the lower part of my bowels bearing down all the time, and pains in my groins and thighs ; I can* not sleep, walk or sit, and I believe I am diseased all over ; no one ever suffered as I do." This is a description of thousands of cases which come to Mrs. Pinkham's laboratory for advice An inflamed and Mas.

Did you ever buy your own steaks and get the worst in the shop nearly every time? An old friend has had that misfortune, and he Is always will- Ing to pay two or three cents more a pound than any other customer. Hav ing listened calmly to his tale of woe, I inquired if he had acquired the practice of tipping the butcher. Tip ping the butcher? No! He thought It was a sufficient tip to offer the two or three cents more a pound. "That offer." I tried to explain, "goes to the proprietor direct, or his block man thinks .yon are trying to make n thief of him b.\ Ind in- ing him to hold ■nit for himself the extra price.

BEYOND CONTROL HOW THE MUSCLES ARE AFFECTED IN LOCOMOTOR ATAXIA A Well-Known Ohio Citizen Cured of TliU Stubborn Ailment After His System Seemed Hopelessly Broken Down From the News, Waverty, Ohio Mr. Ell Potts is a well-known citi- zen of Waverly, Ohio, having been in business there for fourteen years. He is a veteran of the Mexican war, in which he served with Company H, of the Fourteenth Tennessee regiment. At the age of 76 he bears the respect of all who know him, and the follow- ing experience, related by him, is raised beyond all doubt by the high character of the narrator. He says: "About seven years ago a disease fastened upon me which, as it devel- oped, proved to be locomotor ataxia. I became very nervous, could not walk without having dizzy spells, and did not sleep well. As the disease ad- vanced I lost control of my muscles and could only walk a short distance. I could not control the direction of my &tep3 and was always afraid of falling. "This continued until the fall of 1897. when there was a breaking down of my entire system. My stomach was in bad condition, and I suffered greatly with kidney trouble caused by being thrown out of a buggy. "About two years ago I saw Dr. Wil- liams' Pink Pills for Pale People ad- vertised in a Cincinnati paper. The case cured was similar to mine, and I gave the pills a trial. Very soon after I began taking them I experienced re- lief, and, as the improvement contin- ued. I took the pills regularly. Grad- ually the control of the muscles was restored and my general health im- proved. The dizzy feeling left me and has never returned. From my own ex- perience I know that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are a great remedy, and I am pleased to recommend them to any one who suffers as I did." feigned, ELI POTTS.
