An Appeal to Those Suffering
!l \ou are a sufferer from rheumatism I know that this will be
of much interest. I know if you have a relative, or friend, suffer?
ing the terrible tortures of this many-headed monster?rheuma
titm that it will be equally interesting
You would give almost any price to be relieved.
There are many so-called "cures" advertised?read what most
of them require: Take three or four times a day, internally, some
remedy made up with strong drug.-;, which I would call "dope."
Read what these "cures" claim is the cause of rheumatism?
uric acid, kidney trouble, liver complaint, indigestion, etc.
No one knows what uric acid is?ask your family physician.
W hile you are talking to him, ask about these "cures" at the
same time. You have a lot of faith in his opinion.
Rheumatism is a serious disease??with more serious conditions
ft llo < ing if not checked in time. It often doubles one up, brings
on . 11 ?orts of misery, makes life almost unbearable.
Nine ca es out of ten require no internal treatment at all.
Do not fill your system with these "cures" until you have tried
You may be one of the nine that can be helped by it?Noah's
Liniment is an external treatment.
You would, if a sufferer, give $5.00 as quickly as $1.00 for
something that would help you. All I ask you to do is to try one
large size bottle of Noah's Liniment. If it doe3 not benefit you
your dealer is authorized to give back your money.
Where there is not any swelling or fever Noah's Liniment will
no doubt help you. Requires very little rubbing, penetrates and
does not evaporate like most external remedies.
If you have read thus far you will be more interested to con?
tinue. I have personally investigated many of the testimonials
for Noah s Liniment.
Not long ago I went to Charleston, S. C, to look into a re?
markable case. This man, Mr. John P. Daly, was unable to raise
his right arm for more than ten years until he had used Noah's
Liniment. Mr. Daly is 68 years old. and is well and favorably
known in Charleston. He has resided there most of his life and was
a veteran in the civil war. Mr.
Daly told me his sister request?
ed a sample by mail; then he
states he purchased a 25c size
bottle, and then a $1.00 bottle,
and a little more than the latter
made a perfect cure.
Noah Remedy Company
Mr. Daly's Statement
"I suffered with rheumatism in my right arm
and shoulder, complii ated with a partial parahsis
of the nerves. I tritd numerous preparations with
only partial relief, buffering intense pain all the
time, loss of appetite, insomnia and was reduced
to a mere skeleton. Fortunately I learned of
Noah's Liniment and began its use. Although I
could not raise my arm, after using a little more
thjn a large size bottle I feel that I am completely
cured and my old self again Cannot too strongly
recommend Noah's Liniment."?John P. Daly,
Charleston, S. C.
From a Prom nent Business Man of Alexandria, Va
"I have been using Noah's Liniment in a very
bad case of rheumatism, and have found it very
beneficial in removing the pain, and Leiieve it to
be a valuable remedy. I recommend it to all suf?
ferers in that line."?J. Matthews.
Cured of Sciatic Rheumatism
"Every winter for the past few years I have
been troubled with sciatic rheumatism, and had
used nearly every liniment and remedy known.
I used one bottle of Noah's Liniment, and haven't
been troubled with pain sinie" -\ K Eaarata,
Prop. Glol e Stamp VV'otka, Boston, Maas.
Cured of Bone Rheumatism
"I had been suffering with bone rheu-natism
for about three years. I have been using N'oah'a
Liniment, and will say that it cured me completely
Can walk better than I have in two years. Noah's
Liniment will do all you claim. I cannot recom?
mend it high enough."?S. L. t yrus Donald. 1 I
