therefore, wish to say to all that it ls equally

and it stands to-day, unrivalled by all tho great
catalogue of family medicines. It is sufholont
ovidenco of its virtues ns a standard medicine, to |
know that it is now used in all parts of tho world
and that its salo is constantly increasing. No

given such universal sacisfation. It is a purely
