it. I could shout now to know that
we are a!* well of that dreadful trou
ble. The first of last fall my little boy
broko out with some kind kf itching
trouble. Thiniizig his blood was bad
I gave him a good tonic, but he got
worse, and could not sleep at night.
Some said he had itob, and told me
what was good for it. I used what
peol)Ie said would cure It, but nothing
did any good. My other two children
and myself took tAe disease from him
In January, 1911. I saw Hunt's Cure
advertised and I purchased a 60c. box
It helped my little boy so much I got
a box for each of the family, and now
we are all well of that awful trouble.
Hunt's Cure will cure Itch In a short
time if you will go by directions. We
had It in its worse form, and used
Hunt's Cure, and we are now all well.
Thanks to A. 13. Richards Medicine
