He makes a number of im- portant recommendations to the com- mission which will likely be acted on by the board shortly. His recommendations are all wards improving facilities for pers in the west. He suggests general manager of that line, accom- panied me on part of .the trip, and Mr. L. H.. Jeliff, of Spring Coulee, representing the stock shippers, on the whole of the trip.

Mrs. John Pettigrew, of Central Econ- omy, N.S., was practically helpless from Kidney Trouble. She could not stoop, and her limbs ached so that it was torture for her to be up and around the house. Mrs. Pettigrew put it, "I was" all crippled up. I saw Gin Pills advertised and sent for some, and--af ter taking only two boxes am a different "woman. Gin Pills are the only thing that helped mei and I cannot say too much for them." If you have that dreadful pain in the. you are tortured with Rheuma- tism or have trouble with your Bladder and especially in passing your Liver is torpid and you are Gin at once.
