ROMANCE OF NZ LIFE
Of all the romances of real life the unusual experiences of a lady of Normanby (Taranaki) (recently published in a local paper) may be placed on record among the most remarkable. Twenty-one years of age and with the brightest prospects in life, Mrs G. A. Eagles has nevertheless found herself in a serious predicament. To the pressman who called at her home (Normanby-road, Normanby), she said with charming frankness:- "I am just 21, and was born in the Clutha district, having resided in Hawera and Normanby for 12 years. For years I did not enjoy good health. I became anaemic. My strength failed, mu face grew pale and I suffered from severe headaches and prostration. I lost my appetite and hardly dared perform domestic duties. I grew so ill that doctors were consulted and I took medicines for five months, only obtaining temporary relief. Then I commenced Dr Williams' pink pills. Two boxes improved me so greatly that I continued them and before long regained perfect health. I am now quite strong, have a good appetite, sleep well, and every trace of anaemia has vanished. My recovery is, I am sure, entirely due to Dr Williams' pink pills.
If we feed and enrich the blood, for which Dr Williams' pink pills are especially famed, we check anaemia (from which Mrs Eagles suffered) and ward off and cure indigestion, sluggish liver, debility, nervous ailments like St Vitus dance, neuralgia and paralysis. Dr Williams' pink pills also cure rheumatism, sciatica, bronchitis, chest and lung troubles, but they must be the genuine, bearing the full name in red and white wrapper. Sold by the Dr Williams' Medicine Co., Wellington, three shillings per box, six boxes sixteen and six, post free, and by chemists and storekeepers.
NOTE People in NZ back in the late 19th, early 20th century, were paid a small fee to make such adverts for Dr Williams. Whether they were afflicted as they said or were enterprising enough to make a few pounds is unknown. The ad for her continuing good health was still going in 1903

1908 - 1961 Hector William Eagles

He coolly picked up the severed member and held it firmly against the bleeding stump for some minutes, innocently thinking it would stick back on, before he reported that he had been injured. The surgeon who attended stated that the act probably saved him from bleeding to death
