CAPTAIN SEMMES. "Well,
first I experienced a sort of Shooting in the Side, accompanied by Symptoms of
Collapse, ,followed by a General Sinking, and a kind of Swimming Sensation." .
DOCTOR BULL. " Yes,
yes—exactly! I think I had slight symptoms of the disorder myself some years
ago. It is known among the profession as Yankeephobia, for which Spirit of
Cave-in is frequently used: but in your case, I should recommend building up—a
little iron, and so forth. However, I will fix you up something which will make

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMEN
of ancient times used honey to
beautify their complexion; but the combination with palm-oil and other valuable
ingredients makes it still more valuable. For bathing suffering infants, a few

and white, and free from blemish.
