LIFE WAS NOT WORTH LIV
Shelby, N. April 30, 1902.
I had been a severe sufferer from
nervous prostration for two yea ff
and everything I ate disagreed with
tne. ,phis made me feel so wretch
ed and bad all the time that life
was a harden; and I felt that I had
rather die than live. I could not
eat meat or any solid food at all, and
everything I did eat caused me to
suffer. I had terrible nervous spells,
when I would become cold And feel
almost lifeless then hot baths
would have to be applied. I suffer
ed fiooi gas on the stomach all the
time, and so Weak I diln't do any
work for twelve months. Nothing
I tried did me any good.
I was in that condition when Mrs.
Joe Person called to see me last
July and said everything she could
to persuade me to try her Remedy,
as she was so confident it would
cure me. I bought a half dozen
bottleft and felt a great deal better
by the time I had taken the third
I continued it until I took 18 bot
tles, which CURED me. My indi
gestion is well and I can eat any
thing I want, and it is very seldom
I ever have even a touch of nervous
ness. My health is good and life
itself seems like) a different thing to
me and well worth living. VV nen
I commenced the Remedy L weighed
105 pounds, now I weigh 140
pounds, which was my natural
weight before I was taken sick.
If any one suffers from indiges
tion or nrvoas prewtra'ion, they
need not hesitate to try the Remedy.
I would not lake any amount of
money for wbat it did for me.
