i Have you lost faith
So had these men. But D.?.B. restored
faith and health, too
"I had ulcers and rheumatism for
8 years," writes Mr. Joseph Irl unter of
? Elk Hill, Va. "I couldn't find any
; medicine to give mc but very little
i relief. I drifted along for months and
months in dreadful condition till one
I day I happened to read in a newspaper
i about B.B.B. I tried it with vcrv little
I faith. But it did me so much good
that I ordered three bottles; and it has
done mc more good than any medicine
I have taken. I feel better, eat more,
have less pain. I am glad I found a
medicine that suits my case."
Mr. James Peterson of Ridge
Springs, S. (.'., writes: "Nothing did
me any good until I used B.B.B. I
had some sore places in my leg. And
' two bottles of B.B.B, did me more good
than twenty-nine dollars worth of
doctor's medicine. B.B.B, is the greatest
medicine 1 cvr used.''
We have hundreds of such
grateful letters from people who
had lost all faith in medicine until
they tried B.B.B, and were com?
pletely cun d. Your case cannot
be worse than theirs. Don't be
discouragt d. Go to your drug
