Notwithstanding the great num
ber of medical books that cover the
country and the vast expense of
producing some of them, we fail to
find a single one that is practical
for uuprofessiouable people to use.
They attempt to supplant the
physician by devoting their many
pages to complicated diseases which
no family should think of treating,
and give but little attention to rem

continually needed, and which

to our friends, one of the most use

In this book nothing is given for
any serious troubles, because the
unprofessional person is not capa

thing complicated, and such trou

In consideration of the above,
great care has been used to place

The book described above contains one hundred and sixty-eight
formulas, and our scheme is to give them away, but the giving away
cannot be done indiscriminately as our purpose is to place one in each
home iu bt. Johns, and at the same time to get you started In using the
the recipes; so we will require you to get a recipe filled at the time you
receive the book. Each week we will publish two sample formulas,
any one of which you may bring to us at any time and have filled and
