prising results ! In a week I was a new man. In ten days I gained ten pounds. In two weeks my hair grew fourteen inches, and a vigorous pubescence appeared on my upper lip and on the palms of my hands. In three weeks I had com- menced my favorite pastime of sermonizing, and my head regained its normal enlargement. At the end of four weeks I had resumed my occupation of working the Sunday Schools, and in six weeks I began once more the reformed heathen act, both with marked financial success. After taking twenty-five bottles of your medicine I feel that I am wholly cured, and now take every opportunity to recom- mend your valuable remedy to all suffering from unknown diseases. Yours for ten dollars, Gab Sin Kiro Shiroda. HAMPSHIRE SS. Amherst, Mass.

Sworn to before me : Ofermund von Kramer, Augsember i, 1894. Justice of the Peace. 65

However obscure the cause the effects were evi- dent. I was so nervous that the slightest thing, the sight of a woman, or the thought of losing a cent, would cause .my heart to nutter and palpitate. I was so dizzy at times that I was obliged to walk backward up and down stairs in order to prevent falling. For the same reason I was compelled to de- cline the position of centre-rush upon the ' Varsity foot-ball team. Sometimes I felt so miserable and desperate that I thought I should either commit suicide or take extra work in chemistry. Having exhausted the medical talent of this section of the state aud expended a vast amount of gall all to no avail, at the advice of my pastor I turned to the proprietary medicines on the market, choosing such as seemed the most valuable for my purpose. For three weeks I took Mellin ' s Food, Douglass ' Vermifuge, Kendall ' s Spavin Cure, and Lydia E. Pinkham, but grew constantly worse. By this time I was so weakly that I only appeared on the Sabbath. I could bear nothing on my stomach, not even my gold watch charm.
