I Will try Vegetine.
AND WAS CURED.
DELAWARE, 0., Feb. 16, 1877.
Ma. I1. R. STEVENS:
Dear Sir.-I wish to give you this testi
mony, that you may know, and let others
know, what Vegetine has done for me,
About two years ago a small sore came on
my leg; it became a large Ulcer, so trouble
some that I consulted the doctor, but I got
no relief, growing worse from day to day.
I suffered terribly; I could not rest day or
night; I was so reduced my friends thought
I wonid never recover; I consulted a doctor
at Columbus. I followed his advice; it did
no good. I can truly say I was discouraged.
At this time I was looking over my news
paper: I saw your advertisement of Vege
tine, the "Great Blood-Purifier" for cleans
ing the blood from all impurities, curing
Humors. Ulcers, &c. 1 said to my family,
I will try some of the Vegetine. Before I
had used the first bottle I began to feel bet
ter. I made un my mind I had got the right
medicine at last. I could now sleep well at
nights. I continued taking the Vegetine.
I took thirteen bottles. My health is good.
The Ulcer is gone, and I am able to attend
to business.- l paid about four hundred dol
lars for medicine and doctors before I
bought the Vegetine. I have recommended
Vegetine to others with good success I
always keep a bottle of it in the house now.
It is a most excellent medicine.
Very respectfully yours, F

ulcers and pimiles. In this condition of the
blood try the-VEGETINE, and cure these
affections. As a blood purifier it has no
equal. Its effects are wondertul.
DOECHNWER, MASS., June 11.
Dear Sir,-I fefl it my duty to say one
word in regard to the great benefit I have
received from the use of one of the greatest
wonders of the world; it is your Vegetine.
I have been one of the greatest sufferers for
the last eight years that ever could be liv
ing. I do sincerely thank my God and your
Vegetine for the relief I have got. The
Rheumatism has pained me to such an ex
tent, that my feet broke out in sores. For
the last three years I have 1.ot been able to
walk; now I can walk and sleep, and do
my work as well as ever I did, and I must
say I owe it all to your blood purifier, Vege.

HENDERSON, Ky., Dec., 1S77.
I have used H. R. Stevens' Vegetine, and
like it better than any medicine I have
used for purifying the blood. One bottle of
Vegetine accomplished more good than
all other medicines I have taken.
VEGETINE is composed of Roots, Barks,
and Herbs. It is very pleasant to take;
every child likes it.
