remarked that the leslgmitlon was for
personal reasons alone. It Is definitely

yesterday morninir the congregation
were mystified when Mr. Hell an

ONE OF THE BEST FEATURES
OT the Pyramid Pile ('tiro
is the fact that It cures every form
of lilies without one parllcle of pain.
This desirable point Is not obtained by
the use of Injurious dplates which sim
ply deaden and paralyze- the nerves of
the parts and make matters worse in
Hie long run, Hut It Is done solely by
Its remarkable healing and soothing ct
lectH. And while It thus gives Immediate
relief, at the same time the disease Is
not merely checked, but a radical cure
Is rapidly accomplished. "
And the point we want lo make clear
Is that all this is done without a particle
This fact Is one reason for the great
populuilly ot the Pyramid Pile Cure
and constitutes one very great differ
ence between it nnd almost any other
kind of treatment for piles. '
Hvcry kind of surgical operation for
idles Is excruciatingly painful besideii
endangering the life of the patient and
in most cases Is not to be compared
with the Pyramid Cure, neither In mak
ing successful cures without pain nor
In cheapness and safety.
The Pyramid Pile Cure has been be
foiu the public too long and Its in-iits
recognized by too many people to al
low It to be classed with tin- m.i'iy
salves, suppositories, pills, etc., and you
run no ilsk in trying It, us Is often the
case with new and untried preparations.
