HOW STOUT BOT STOUT, fi£MAMAM,£ Of A BlfiOMAffiO All Cad flesh Me , - :•; e fttia strong. ., ($!?»»* ^« JITd. Sferti>$, J7Z. '-,< Few men fete held itt higher esteetri 1 tgf their fellow townspeople thati Jas. W< Stout, of Siply, 111., and it is due fid doubt partly to this popularity that the record of the case has created such %ide-spread interest. While his experience is not withoxtt an equal, yet it has been sufficiently remarkable to detaand the attention of thousands of tJCOple in Illinois, among whom are ttttin"b€fed some of the most eminent SAVE f rife In January, 1898, Mis Stout was stricken with what was thett i believed to be sciatic rheumatism, and in a short time was barely able to hobble aroitnd ott crutches, and it seettied to his friends that his days were numbered. tto-day he is a strong, hearty looking tnan of 160 pounds. Bow this wonderful change was brought about is most interesting as told to a representative of the Republican by Mr. Stout himself: "I was afflicted with sciatic rheumatism and lumbago in January, 1893. 'The sciatic nerve on the right side became affected in the hip, running down to the ankle and across the small of the back to the left side, and ^ soon toy whole system became afflicted, causing me the most excruciating pain. In a very short time I became totally unable to attend to any business whatever, and the disease rapidly, growing worse, I had to take to my bed, where I lay suffering almost continuously for months the most agonizing torture, scarcely being able ' to .<• move, or be moved. At one time I, lay for six weeks flat on my back,;, the slightest movement causing .me such pain as almost to throw me into convulsions. I cannot begin to express, to you the ., intense pain I suffered. I was drawn, . by the severeness'of the malady, over, to the left side; lost my appetite, had no desire for food,' and what little I did eat I could not digest, the digestive organs failing to perform their duty, adding greatly to my already precariousi condition. For weeks at a time I was unable to eat or sleep, suffering all the time most intensely and at, ; times fearing I would lose my reason, and would have welcomed death to relieve me of my sufferings. "I consulted with local physicians and some of the most'eminent specialists of the larger cities throughout the country, some treating me for ' one thing and some for another, but without effect, and I received no relief whatever. One physician told me I had double curvature of the spine and : •would eventually become paralysed. I epent hundreds of dollars in the short time I was afflicted without receiving the least benefit. My friends all thought that there was ,no hope for me whatever and'said that I must die, and I myself had almost given up in d&spair, when in September, 1893, ' rOJout eight months after I was first K-, f f „*. dieted, my attention was called to Dr.' 1 Williams' Pink Pills for Pale 'People. Without much hope, I at once sent to C. F. Rickey <fc Co., Druggists, Mt. Sterling, 111., and procured some of the pills and immediately began taking them. Before long I became aware of a great change for the better in my almost hopeless condition. My appetite came back and my digestive . organs performed their usual functions properly. I took some more and grey? rapidly better—could sit up in a chair and my body began to straighten out; continued the treatment and in a short time was able to be about on crutches. My recovery from that time on was very rapid and assured. My right leg, •which before I commenced this treatment was numb and dead, now experienced a - pricking, tingling sensation. •I was enabled to throw away my crutches and walk upright once more among my fellows, a better man " ilcally than ever before. When taken by the disease I weighed 1 /ISO pounds; was reduced to 115; I now weigh 160, more than I ever weighed^ »t any time in my life, Yes, sir, I lay my recovery entirely to Pink Pills," J)r, Williams' Pink' Pills for Pale' People are an unfailing specific 'for «uca diseases as locomotor ataxia, partial paralysis, St, Vitus' d,ftnce, sciatica,.neuralgia, rheumatism, n'erv- , ^us Jieadaohe, the after effects of Ja ' grippe, palpitation of 'tjie heart, pale and' sallow complexions, and, - 'all forme of weakness either in male or fejnaje, Pink Pills are sold ,by all dealers, or will be sent) post paid <m " , 50 cents a bP^ pr six .. .. -tthey^eneyerfsoldw, '•'or by .the' JOp) 'by ' add^egpng, ' Medicine, Qa,,'gehenee. A Colllitea ftetentetl By A tl&sfa ton ft ftftlh* Sight. Engineer fedward Schaffer* on trfeitt So. 9, running between Buffalo and Rochester, on the Falls road, says the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, had ah experience last ''summer that made 1 his hair stand on end. ±he train left tiuftalo about t o f clock, in charge of Conducto. Knickerbocker, with Engineer Schaffer at the throttle. The train had ft clear track, as was supposed, between Buffalo and Rockport, and was running at & high rate of speed. Black Rock wis feached without any mishap. After 1* aving that station behind the engineot sent the train ahead at the fate of over thirty milea an hour. The night was dark as pitch, and the rain beat against the cab windows Unceasingly. Engineer Schaffer sat ill his seat by the cab window. The headlight was of little uso in the blinding rain, and the en- gineoi* could see only a few yards in advance of the engine. The train sped on thf otigh the darkness, and soon, the lip grade, about live miles south of the Tonawanda, was reached. The engineer Opened the throttle wider, the fireman shoveled coal faster. , Tho hill was passed .ihd the tfdin rumbled on through the storm, Suddenly a flash of lightning, followed by a terrific peal of thunder, lit Up the track a half a mile ahead. Schaffer was looking ahead just : 'at that moment, and a sight met his gaze that sent the blood 'to his cheeks. Twenty yards ahead four freight cars were standing on ihe track., Grasping the reverse lever he pulled it, back to the last notch and shouted to/ the flue- man to put on the aivbrakes. • The fireman's blood seemed to- "freeze v in his veins,, and, seizing the brake lever, he sent the air through the pipes full force; At the same moment Schaffer set the emergency Brakes. The strong locomotive , cr.eaked ; and groaned. The engineer and -Jireman, with blanched cheeks, stood* looking into each other's, faces, while the " perspiration, trickled from their foreheads in largo drops. But only for a moment,' for the engine' tottered" and both' of them were thrown to the floor of the cab.' The shock was so sudden that the passengers in the coaches were thrown from their seats', the chandeliers swung 1 from the ceiling and two of them fell to the floor. One man was thrown completely over the seat in front of him, landing with his head shoved under the second seat in front and his feet propped up against the- breast of an elderly gentleman behind in such a manner as to hold him firmly in his seat. One young lady was, by the force of the shock, lifted • from her seat, carried into the aisle and deposited in the lap of a man who was lying on his back in the aisle. The baggageman was at the time engaged in checking a trunk. He did not check it just then, however, for when the shock carrie the trunk eluded 'his' grasp and 'started' with the other baggage for the other end of the car. The baggageman was found a few minutes later covered up with sachels in one corner of the car. After the excitement had subsided the conductor and engineer got off the train to investigate the situation. They -found the pilot of the engine shoved a foot beneath the caboose of the freight train ahead. As they were but a few miles from Lockport, the freight was pushed into the yard limits and sidetracked, the train proceeding- on its way to Lockport. Old engineers on the Central Hudson pronounce it the most wonderful stop they had ever heard of. The flash of lightning was all that saved the lives of ovex* 200 passenger's on board the train. f iking a Long Sector—Iti ofde? to etfect & curt ilj bate to undergo ft stifgical operation Patient—Is it fealty danfcarousf Doctor—No dafifcw; you Wil Without ft doubt.
