ADVICE TO MOTHERS The book is worth many times the
price asked for it to mothers who have the care of small children. The
section devoted to children's diseases is the most modern of anything
yet published. It is brought up to date 1896.
NURSING Nothing is more conducive to the comfort of the sick
than to have an able nurse. By following the instructions and study
ing carefully the section devoted to this branch of the healing art, you
can become perfectly proficient in this science. Every woman should
know what to do and the best way of doing it in case they are sud
denly called upon to care for the sick.
INFANT FEEDING This section alone is worth many times
the price asked for the book. Here the mother, whether she be young
and inexperienced, or whether she may have had a world of experience,
will find words of wisdom. She will find what is the best food for the
baby, and the very f?.test and best way to prepare it.
DISEASES OF CHILDREN The treatment of children's dis
eases has been revolutionized during the past few years; all that is
new and by experience proven to
this section. No book of recent
vanced in its treatment of this important branch as this book. Ths
late treatment for that dreaded disease Diphtheria which has proven
so fatal to so many, is here fiiven.
DISEASES PECULIAR TO WOMEN In this section will be
found invaluable information for every woman and for every maiden
just merging into womanhood. The advice and treatment here given
is tha latest and best. It is by a physician who has long been a spe
cialist in this class of diseases.
THE STOMACH There is no one but what recognizes the fact
that a sound stomach is the prime requisite for a sound body. The
diseases of this important organ have been dwelt upon at great length.
The very best means are minutely described for restoring this organ to
a healthful state after being once deranged.
THE LIVER Every individual knows the vast role this organ
plays in the human organism. If it be out of fix the whole family and
most of the neighbors know it, for he is a nuisance to himself and all
about him. This book gives a minute description of this all-important
organ, and a clear portrayal of its varied diseases. It then tells
how these may be corrected and the organ restored to its healthy con
dition. IXXJ3Vri3Xl33I3JSI MOHE.

been the recipient of numerous pres

Chief among these are the manufac

Bryan uses neither tobacco nor
whisky, he cannot attest to their
quality, and so the whisky finds its
way to the sewer and the cigars he
distributes among the newspaper cor

'-I don't look much like a living skele
ton uow, do I? and yet two years ago I
weighed just seventy-two pounds," said
Mrs. J. W. Coffey, of 55 warburton ave
nue, Yonkers, N. Y., to a reporter. And
we agreed with her, for she certainly
looked anything but a living skeleton,
but rather bore the appearance of a
plump and and attractive lady in excel
lent health and spirits. Continuing, the
"I had lost my appetite and waa wast
ing away in flesh, losing some fifty pounds
in a few months. Doctors said I was
threatened with consumption. I waa
under what was regarded as first class
medical treatment, but it had apparent
ly had little or no effect, for I kept get
ting worse until I could not attend to
my household duties and could hardly
walk. My husband and everybody who
saw me thought surely that I would die,
and there seemed no help for me.
"Tonics and stimulants and medicines
all seemed useless, and I grew worse and
worse until at last I resolved to seek
some new remedyone entirely out . of
the usual linn of nauseous drugs and
doses of stuff which seemed to take
away what little relish I might perhaps
otherwise have had for food. A friend
told me of some wonderful cures effected
by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Peo
ple, and I bought a box. The effect from
their use was noticeable from the first
and soon appeared almost miraculous,
for it seemed pretty nearly like the rais
ing of one from the dead.
"I soon commenced to eat, something
I bad scarcely done before for weeks, and
soon began to gain in flesh and strength.
I went one day to the doctor's office and
he was surprised at the change in me for
the better. I had to confess that I had
been taking the pills, and he was broad
minded enough to advise me to continue
what was evidently doing me so much
good. I took, in all, six boxes, and In
creased in weight from 72 to 125 pounds
which is my regular and normal weight."
"Are you sure the cure is permanent?"
"Well, yes. My work is that of trained
nurse, which means, as you probably
know, irregular hours, and at times
great exhaustion. During the two years
since my recovery I have had many en
gagements, and through them all have
continued in good health. 1 take pleas

able power of this great medical discov
ery. I know of other cures effected by it.
A friend of mine suffered greatly at her
monthly periods. One box relieved and
three boxes cured her. But I know of no
case equal to mine, for my case was criti
cal, desperate, and almost hopeless."
Mrs.' Coffey has lived in Yonkers for
sixteen years, and for twelve years has
foil wed the business of attendingthesick,
excepting only the period of her illness.
She has hundreds of acquaintances and
friends who know her to be capable and
trustworthy. Many of them know how
very ill she was and how remarkable was
her recovery. The pills have a large sale
