LIGHTHOUSE LADY IN DANGER.
A true and very interesting story was the other day partially disclosed to a
reporter of the "Bridgend Chronicle".
Anxious to ascertain, if possible, the facts surrounding the case, the
editor commissioned one of the staff to see the Nash Lighthouse-keeper's
wife. Nash Lighthouse is situated on the rugged rocks of the Bristol
Channel. On reaching it the reporter saw a lady, and in a few words
unfolded what he had heard, viz., that a MRS. EVANS living there had had a
"I am MRS. EVANS," said this lady, "and I have had what might be termed a
MRS. EVANS said that her husband, who is the principal keeper of the
lighthouse, was placed there last March, having been removed from Caldy
"Were you in good health when you came here?"
"Well, I was weak, but not what might be called ill-health. The air is
bracing, but it made me ill. I think it is too strong for me. I had only
been here a month when I was taken very ill, and my husband had to call in a
doctor. I was ill for three months, and at the end of that period I was
suddenly taken much worse. The doctor again came, and treated me with very
great skill, but he informed my husband that it was of little use sending
for him anymore."
"Your husband was very anxious about you ?"
"Yes, indeed; I was suffering from severe indigestion, accompanied by a
"How do you account for your recovery then?" asked the reporter.
"Well, I can attribute it to one thing only. I was almost out of my mind
with the severe and excruciating pains in my head and racking of my inside
resulting from continuous indigestion. My tongue was parched and gums
swollen so much so that I could not eat or drink, and if I did manage to eat
anything I was racked with pain until it was vomited back. At this period
when I was at my worst, I saw an account in one of the papers of how many
people had been cured by 'DR. WILLIAMS' PINK PILLS FOR PALE PEOPLE' I sent
for some, and had only finished the first box when I felt much better. Ere
I had taken the second box, I was able to get up from my bed, and on
continuing to take them, I am now able to go about my work. I can eat and
drink well, sleep, and the racking pain of indigestion have forsaken me.
MRS. STABBS, the good lady who nursed and was a constant attendant upon MRS.
EVANS during her illness, convinced the reporter that the change was due to
Dr. William's Pink Pills, because, said she, I noticed a change in her
before she had taken the first box.
These are the plain unvarnished facts, as recorded to the reporter, and MRS.
EVANS' husband was firmly convinced that if it had not been for Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills he would not have had his wife to cheer and comfort him
through the long weary hours which fall to the lot of a lighthouse keeper.
It is not only in cases like that of the Nash Lighthouse-keeper's wife
reported in the "Bridgend Chronicle", that Dr. Williams' Pills have proved
themselves valuable. They have cured paralysis, locomotor ataxy,
rhematism, and sciatica; also all diseases arising from impoverishment of
the blood, scrofula, rickets, chronic erysipelas, consumption of the
bowels and lungs, anaemia, pale and sallow complexion, general muscular
weakness, loss of appetite, palpitations, pains in the back, nervous
headache, early decay, all forms of female weakness and hysteria.
These Pills are a tonic, not a purgative, and are sold by chemists and by
Dr. Williams' Medicine Company, 46 Holborn Viaduct, London E.C., at 2s 9d a
box, or six for 13s 9d. Pills sold loose, or from glass jars: and those
offered with the plain title "Pink Pills" are not Dr. Williams'.
Before paying see that the pink wrapper bears the 'full name' 'DR. WILLIAMS'
PINK PILLS FOR PALE PEOPLE', or you will obtain a mere substitute, which
will be quite worthless.
