Scores of people who have snffered
for years, mnany of whom never ex

been completely restored to health
and news of countless wonderful

Atnmg the many recent callers who
related their st range eXpeCrienices with

sreet. Ath zaa. t wenaty two years and
who for sixteen years has been emn

rn~ Railroad round house. Mr. De
\\ eite said he had been afflicted witu
stomauch trouble for about. four years
and Lhat five doctors and many differ
et medicines had failed to effect a
:ure. In speaking or his strange case
ie said: "I sometimes would have no
lesire to eat at all. My digestion was
poor and frequently I would suffer
intensely with paina in my stomach.

sause belchingr. I had dull, heavy

:bout three weeks and feel like a new

veight and can eat almost anything.
Isleep fine, too, and get up feeling
ested. This medicine has certainly
ized me up in fine shape."

iot digest and I was in constant mis

vithout relief. I heard so much
bout this newv Root Juice treatment
:hat I procured a bottle and began
ising it. To my great surprise before
had finished it I found my stomach,
iver and kidney trouble fast disap

sleep well. In fact. I feel better
very way. -
Other well-known Atlanta people
ho report equally phenomenal re
ults are Mr. R. WV. Roberts, 16 Short
treet, who says that his wife was
reated by twenty two doctors with
ut results and that the first bottle
f the juice treatment brought relief.
Mr. Oscar L. seymour, living at
eber and Orange streets, reports
hat after suffering from rheumatism,
wollen joints- and pain for eight
-ears, three bottles of the juice
reatment put him on his feet, cans
d the soreness and swelling to dis
plpear and made him feel fine.
So quickly and marvelously have
ome severe cases been cured that
tories have been circulated to the
ifect that the medicine possesses
ome miraculous p)ower, but this of
;ourse is ridiculous and untrue.
Many of those who have used it,
zowever, say that the good effect is
et so quickly that it does seem al
nost like a miracle.
One of the most startling cures
hat has yer been brought to light is
hat of Mrs. E. W. Moore, a prominent
ud well known lady who has issued

in her case. Ini her statement Mrs.
Moore says: "I almost believe Root
Juice to he a gift from Heaven, for
I have suffered seven .rears with
chronic stomaichi arnd kidney tronble
and it hast entirely cured me. a hen
lever I would eat meat or potatoes,
as would form in my stomach and
this would pres-s upon my heart so
heavily att times that I thought I
would smother. I bad a dull heavy
headache anid pains across my back.
My hands and feet were always cold
and when getting snp in the morning
I would be so dizzy I could not see.
I was an invalid for four years and
althongzh twelve doctors treated me
I was not apparent.ly benefited At
times I wa too week to feed myvself
and when I started taking Root Juice
I weiteed only ninety eight pounds.
W ithin a week after taking nmmv first
dose I fonnd I could eat anything I
cared to without the slightest dis
coirfort and that I was gaining rap
idly in weight. After I took several
bottles of the medicine I was able to
do my own housework and have not
been troubied since in anmy way."
The case of Mrs. J. Schondell is an
other example of the wond-.rful re
suilts that the medicine is accomplish
ing for sick people. Mrs. Schondell
suffered for years with rheumatism
which became so severe that she was
unable to move. The story of her
strange and remarkable recovery is
best told in her own words, and the
following is quoted from a signed
statement which she has issued for
"I suffered for years with a severe
attack of Rheumatism. After trying
numerous doctors without success I
made up my mind to see what the
Root Juice medicine would do for me.
Before taking the medicine I was un
able to move and had to be carried
from one place to another, but when
I had taken only two bottles I was
able to walk without assistance and
can now take care of my household
duties. Root Juice saved my Jife."
The effect of the Root Juice upon
persons suffering from stomach trou
ble is almost incredible. The appe
tite increases with the first few doses
and it is not uncommon to hear peo
ple say, "I had not enjoyed a square
meal for years before I tried it."
One lady who could scaxcely eat
enough to beep her alive and who
suffered tortures from stomach trou
ble, says she can eat anything and
never suffers any more.
Oases of kidney and bladder trou
ble, too, in which the sufferers com
plained of backache, soreness in the
back, dark specks seeming to float
before the eyes, painful and frequent
urination. puffiness under the eyes
and other common symptoms, have
yielded very quickly and many com
plete cures reported.
It is said to relieve almost any
trouble of the stomach, liver, kid
neys or bowels and is claimed that
its soothing, healing, tonic action on
the digestive and secretory organs is
so rapid that even some of the worst
cases of indigestion, constipation and
nervousness, kidney trouble and
rheumatism are perceptibly benefit
ed fr-om the very start.
Perhaps the best thing about it all
is that the great discovery can be
made very economically and conse
quently the poor can take advantage
of its wonderful health-giving power
as well as the rich. Large bottles
holding nearly a pint are being sold
for only one dollar.

the new medicine for the benefit of
home people who are seeking a speedy
cure and it is expected that a ship
