EVERY WEEK IN THE WEEKLY PAPERS. REMARKABLE CASE of BRONCHITIS and BRONCHIAL

ASTHMA. EXTRACT from the LETTER Of A - D a DISSENTING MINISTER in the North, to MR. CONGREVE, bearing date September 27, 1883

[This patient, who does not wish his name and address to appear in print, says: You may show them to any enquirer, and I will confirm my statement if needed.]

· "I had a constitutional tendency to asthma from a boy, ... Roughing it in the colopies, I became subject to severe pains in the chest, and left for England with a sensation of great tightness and difficulty of broathing. ... Arriving in the old country, I found myself continually catching severe colds. These became bronchial in character, and accompanied by that peculiar whistling with which asthmatics are familiar. The chest was so painful, and breatbing so difficult, that when I awoke in the morning I felt as if I would like a knife to make an incision and let out the air. Soon I had miserable nights also. I consulted five doctors in all, and not one gavo mo a hint which was of the slightest use. They told me I must leave the country, for this climate would novor do for me. I reluctantly prepared to leave, and had arranged for my passago, when I caught my oyo on your name, and the mention of your treatment, in Mr. Spurgeon's Almanack. I sent for your hook, and was convinced ; and, in short, I determined to give your medicine a trial.

“At this time I was suffering from a violent Cough. I had an engagoment to preach on the Sunday, and was in terror at the prospect. I endeavoured to get a Postal Order to send you, but it being Saturday the office was closed. I was successful, howovor, in obtaining a small bottlo of your medicine of a druggist. I took two doses that night, and three the next day Such relief was experienced that, returning by the train, i found myself saying, 'Eureka!'(I have found it). All thought of leaving England was from that day abandoned.

"I do not mean to say that I was instantly cured. The process was gradual. The early awaking in the morning, and tightness of chest, day by day vanished. In six months I considered myself cured; but, catching a chill, I was again threatened, but in a month was bettor. Then I entered again on the regular work of the ministry, and for a long time now have had no trouble with the disease. I keep your medicino by me, and sometimes take a dose when threatened with cold, or on Sunday, to give me a good voice.

“I owe my deliverance from this terrible disease, and my restoration to usefulness, under God, to Mr. Congrove's medicine. I perform full Sunday work, and walk daily for miles in all weathers, and suffer no inconvenience."

CASE of a WELSH INDEPENDENT MINISTER. Rev. J. P. DAVIES wrote me in December of last year. He had suffered long with frequent spitting of blood, pains in the chest, and other symptoms. He continued under my advice until June, his strongth increasing, cough diminishing, and general hoalth steadily improving.

September 27 ho writos :-"I am glad to inform you that I have enjoyed splendid health. I got cold, howover, last week, through getting wet to the skin, and have consequently had a slight relapse.”

In a fortnight afterwards he writos :-“I have recovered from the relapse. There is something beyond imagination in your medicine. For 10 months before I consulted you I could hardly preach. Now it is a comfortable and easy thing.

“I am telling the Welsh papers that you are known to most of our leading ministers, and I shall feel it my duty to assist you in any way that I can.
