A Texas Case.
About two-years ago I was afilicted
with one of the worst cases of blood
poisoning ever known in Texas. I am
a colored man and porter of the U ni
on passenger depot at this point. Af
ter taking prescriptions from the best
physiciams here and at Dallas, which
brought me no relief, I was given up
to die. I had spent over $200 in doc
tor's bills. Finally" I concluded to vis
it Hot Springs, Ark., and on reaching
Tearkana a doctor recommended me
to try Swift's Speciffic, assuring me it
would benefit me more than the Hot
Springs. I returned to Cisco and
bought a supply of S. S. S. from
Messrs. Oreech & Co. Although the
poison had. produced great ulcers,
eating great holes in my my back and
ebest, large enough to place a silver
half dollar, and had removed all the
hair off my head, yet I begun to im
prove in a week's time, and the soras
began to heal and were entirely gone
inside of Eight weeks. After having
taken only four large bottles of Swift's
Specific I was pronounced entirely
cured, and am as sound as a new dol
lar. Remember it was only eight
weeks before that I had been given up
to die by the best physicians in Texas.
Being 'completely restored in that
short time is convincing evidence of
the curative power of this wonderful
medicine. I have recommended it to
others who have since been cured of
this horrible disease, and I heartily
endorse it and commend it to those
who are suffering in like manner.
There is no room for doubt as to a
cure. It is certain.
