of the body. Whilst In tnisconditiunshecommeured
taking your Koakoo—it acted like a charm on hor;
under Its use the ulcers gradually healed, and her
general health greatly improved. It certainly saved
nor much suffering, and perhaps hor life. I regard
KoHkoo a apecific for all scrofulous affections. Your
Koskoo also cured my wife of dyßpopaia, from which
she Buffered greatly. She is now iv better health
than she haa been in five years.

DR. LAWRENCE—Dear Sir: To the large uum
bor of testimoniala which you offer to the great effi
cacy of your Koakoo, I take pleasure in adding my
own. I suffered greatly with Norvous Debility,
HeadacSio, Loss of Appetite, Ac. Two bottles of Koa

Portsmouth, Va., Octohor 25,1809.
This I* to certify that I know Dr. Lawrence well.
He is a gentleman of cultivation, and worthy of the
fulleat confidence. I have nsed his Koskoo with ad
vantage to myself, and have adopted its use in my
fiin>Uy iv CrtM» of nervous debility and depression.

J. J. LAWBKK3*, M. I).—Dear Sir: I cheerfully
endorno your Koskoo as being a must valuable prepa
ration. Upon examination of the formula, J find
each ingredient highly extolled by our best aud ino-U
progressive clinical investigators. I have tested itfi
effects in my own practise, and have no hesitation In
recommending it. In my opinion, it is the best com
pound of its cuts* ever put before the public—or
ctoditig by far all the various compounds of sarsapa
rllla, Ac, over invented. It is a decided Nerve Tonic
and luvigorator of tiie animal forces, aiding diges
tion and assimilation, and thereby producing healthy
blond, which Mionld be tho basis of ircat-.neut En all
chronic diseases. Hoping you will reap tbe reward
yon deserve ttt.w th* public as a benefactor,
