A TERRIBLE CONDITION. Islington, Fekn St. (Newcastle), N.S.W., April 30, 18SG.— Before I took Warner's Safe Cure, I did not sleep or rest during the night. The pain in my left side was very bad ; my eyesight was im paired ; I suffered boyond description with what seemed to be a large, heavy lump in the pit of my Btomaeli, which seemed to cause an almost total blindness. These attacks would generally last throe days, causing great nervousness, and such de pression of spirits I could not help crying most of the day. I had night sivcats to such an extent I thought I was going into consumption, I can now honestly say I am better ill every way, and I can recom mend it to all who suffer. — MRS. ELIZA BETH HANKS *
