Mr. Keenan had, to within a year ago, been blessed with the enjoyment of almost perfect health. He had never known what it was to be confined for weeks at a time upon a nor couch of painful disease, even to lose the vigorous action of mind or limb which had enabled him, through the Many years of his business life, to perform Lis daily tasks unaided and unadvised. It was a year ago that Mr. Keenan first suffered the hand of disease to take hold upon him. At that time he was ntrir'* n down by an aggravated attack of rheuma tism, which robln-d him of the use of his lower limbs and of both his hands. For fully six weeks he lay on his couch, a help less victim of the dread disease, and all the time he suffered intense pain in the affected i portions of his body. He could not move himself upon his bed, and all that he ate had to be fed to him by those in attendance. lie had about despaired of ever fining re lease from the clutches of the frightful dis ease, when one morning his attention was drawn to an advertisement in a morninc I paper, of a remedy lor rhcunviti*m. The i story of what succeeded this casual glance at a medicine advertisement can best I** told in the words of Mr. Keenan himself, who! •when nsked for an explanation of hi* seem ingly miraculous cure, gave the following account: It seemed to me that after all the weeks of terrible suffering that I had endun-d there could not possit.ly be a relief. I had no faith in patent medicines, and when I s iw in a paper the advertisement of Williams' Pink Pills 1 was induced to try thnii only in sheer desperation. I did not feel any re- i lief until I oegan taking the second box of the pills, but then the pain began gradually I to leave me, my appetite Itecaine better, und Trie following ease was also called to the attention of the Examiner, shortly after the publication of the above, and is given here vouched for by that great paper. wati*'/if 1 urn S5JS9 SIXTY. Four years ago, at the time nf the trouble between the United States and Chili, as a result of the killing of the sailors of the U. S. tS. Haltimore, in the streets of a Chiliaa city, many Americans were obliged to leave the country for safety. Among them waa W. M. Lugg, the private detective and col lee tor, whose office is in the Crocker Build ing, San Francisco, Cal. When Mr. Lugg left Chili he went across the mountains into Argentine, travelling on muleback. Mr. Lugg says that the tjip'is a delightful one in point of beautiful scenery and perfect weather, but many people dislike to under take it on account of tne unhealthful stag nant water which they are compelled to drink along the way. Many persons have been stricken down with disease from hav ing drank of it, and in a number of cases the attacks have proven fatal. The native Chilians drink the water without injury t* their systems, but it has a bad effect upon those who are not used to it. I fell a victim to the injurious qualities of the water," said Mr. Lugg. It affected my kidneys to an alarming degree. When I got over into Argentine 1 thought the trou ble would gradually leave me, but instead of that it grew more aggravated and I suf fered terribly from pains in the region of my killin gs. 1 was en route to Chicago and I determined to reach my destination before the complaint should grow so serious as to e.'infin:' me to my tied. Upon reaching Chicago 1 at once consulted a physician, who told me my kidneys had been affected by drinking polluted water. He treated me for some time for that complaint, but I grew steadily worse KIHI new ailments were added to my already serious condition. I began to have neuralgic pains in my head, my spine was all'ceted with shooting pains and I had no control over the urinary organs. It was next to impossible for me to get anv sleep. I lay awake many a night suffering the most intense pains, unci the physician unable to relieve them. Rut relief came at last. One day one of my friends came to my room and handed me a box of Williams' Pink Pi)l«. Of course 1 laughed at him for daring to think that any patent medicine could aid me when my physician had failed. I took the pills, how ever, to oblige my friend more than for any faith I had in them, and I was treated to the most joyous surprise of my life when 1 real i/«-d thi.t i was l»eing reliexed of my pains. First the peculiar pains along my spine ceased, and then mv neuralgic trouble be gan to grow less und finally left me entirely. It look a good while to improve the con dition of my kidnej'/v but after I had taken a number of boxes of the pills 1 knew that they had done their work successfully, tor then I had retained control of the urinary organs and the action of my kidneys was strong and steady. 1 I could sleep soundly throughout the ni :ht without exiH-riencing any of the jerking pains that liad IK*fore kept me awake. I continued to take the pills and it was only a short time until the rheumatism had entirely left mv hands, and I had so far recovered the use of my lesrs as to be able to walk about the house without assistance. In atout two weeks more I was entirely free from the dis ease, but I took two more Imxesof the nills as a precaution against a return of the rheu matism. From the time that the last trace of the disease left me I have not felt tie least i Bign of its return, and I can truthfully say that I now eniuy as free use of my iunbs as ever I did before the rheumatism a-ttacked me. have taken the pains to recommend Will iams' Pink Pills to a ntimlKT of^my i friends who are suffering from rheumatism. I think I know of no other re met! y that will afford such quick and permanent relief from rheumatism as do Williams' Pink Pills, and I I onlv hope that many others may be brought i to see ami feel the high curative powers that the pills possess." When I thought I was out of all danger I juit taking the pills. The relief they had afforded was jMTmanent, however, and I have never since felt a recurrence of the complaints. I hardly know how to praise Williams' Pink Pills as they should be praised. They certainly are a wonderful preparation. I have recommended them to a numU'r of my friends who were suffering from kidney complaints, and they have all been benefited by their use." I)r.
