The statements puOslied from
users of Vitona who ha7>> been re
lieved from various ail mei?!* are ln
nearly every case those of ?pWP'e
"who have tried every other rei?t??/
"without success until they had almost !
t deemed themselves incurable. This 1
has put Vitona under an additional
handicap since the patient has been 1
sceptical to start of with. J
Mr. C. A. Reese, who resides at <
ll? Iverson Street, Atlanta, and who <
is manager for the United Cigar
Company, recently said: <
"Vitona ii without a doubt the t
finest medicine I know of. In fact,
it will do more than I ever thought 1
a medicine could do. For seventeen 1
years I had fainting spells. I would J
often fall to the floor unconscious I
and was always in fear of having 1
these attacks which came sometimes t
as often as once a week. I heard ?
about the fine work Vitona was J
doing and decided to give it a trial, <
although I had little faith in it or f
anything else. Soon after I started '<?
taking it, the spells became less 1
frequent'and eventually ceased en- ?'
tirely. I feel that a great burden 1
has been lifted from my shoulders
.by this great discovery." '
Mr. L. S. Beam, the Vitona
expert, in commenting on the above :
"Vitona is now the talk of the
state, and is without a doubt the
most popular medicine being offered
the people of South Carolina. It is
relieving hundreds ot men and
women, who, like Mr. Reese, had
practically given np all hope. I
find it so that even the most pro
minent will give testimony in praise
of Vitona out of gratitude for the
relief that it brings, and because
they believe it their duty to do so.
'It is the humanitarian spirit to help
the other fellow if you can, and that
is the first thought of many who
. voluntarily tell what Vitona has
. done for them."

rhat's What John Bunyon Johnson,
the Weil-Known Automobile
Salesman, Says of Martin's
One of thc latest to add his un
qualified endorsement tu Martin's
Liver Medicine is John Bunyon
Johnson, of Macon, Ga. In a letter
dated August 25, 1917, he" says:
"It affords me pleasure to report
that I have iaken Martin's Liver
Medicine and/obtained most desir
able results. Martin's Liver Medi
cine is pleasant to the taste, docs
not gripe nor inconvenience the
taker in any way. It acts positively
and yet gently upon the liver and it
is my opinion that it is superior to
any liver medicine sold."
Martin's Liver Medicine is strictly
vegetable in ingredients, contains
no poisonous calomel, is pleasant to
take and is sold with the standing
guarantee that if it does not give
the effect desired, the empty bottle
can be returned to thc ??rug store
and the 50c paid for it will be re
funded. As a medicine for consti
pation, sick headache or other liver
and stomach troubles, Martin's
Liver Medicine is without a peer
