ing the wonderful cures in that dreadful disease, Scro

For Scrofula, that fearful destroyer of human health and happiness, we have
in this water a remedy which neither science nor fortunate accident hi hitherto
found an equal. It is in this malady, and some forms of secondary and tertiary
Syphilis, that this water when carried 0 its full alterative effect, displays Us highest .
curative powers. -In all forms of diseases peculiar to females, this water will be
found to sert a curative influence second to none in Virginia.
I have given your Concentrated Water a fair trial, and say with pleas
ure I have been greatly benefited. For some years I have suffered more or
less with Indigestion, followed by Constipation- and other attendant ills.
Within the past two months I have found such relief from your remedy
that I have improved in strength and weight; have eaten what I have not
dared to do for a long time, and have done harder work than I have been
able to do before for years :
Rev. OSCAR LITTLETON,
. . " Presiding Elder, Lynchburg, Va.
Since 1894 I have been afflicted with Chronic Diarrhoea, About six
months ago I commenced using your Concentrated Iron and Alum Water
with the most wonderful and satisfactory results. ' For three or four years
past I have been deprived of the privilege of visiting friends or going to
church, as my trouble kept me in constant apprehension having lost almost
entirely the control of my bowels; but now I am happy ta state that after
using about a half dozen bottles of your remedy I am entirely cured, not
having used any for the last four months. I can confidently and most gladly
recomnaend your remedy for Chronic Diarrhoea. -.-
Capt. RUFTJS AMIS, Virgilina, Va.
I was an intense sufferer for some months with Indigestion, and could
get no relief .from the ordinary remedies. During the "month of January I
began the use of your Concentrated Water, and one bottle has 'entirely re
lieved me. I can now digest any diet and am entirely free irom suffering.
I take great pleasure in giving thisestimonial. '
Rev. H. Jlf BLAIR,
Editor Nj. C. Christian Advocate,
1 . - Greensboro, N. C.
I have used and prescribed waters from several Iron and Alum Springs,
but none of them begin to come up to your Concentrated JVater in all that
goes to make the ideaf alterative, strengthener, appetiser and restorative.
It is at once a fine tonic and flesh-builder. Have advised several recently
to try it, and always with fine and quick results. In January I had a bottle
tmt from one of your dealers! to a lady; with the understanding that if it
did not at once improve her digestive apparatus, I would pay the $1.00 myself
She not only willingly paid the bill, but used a part-pf one-half dozen more
" bottles, and is now completely cured of a long and annoying Stomach
Trouble. This seems to be the case with all who try it. ' :
