FOR THE AFTER EFFECT
Nashville. Tenn., July 26, 1916.
Nashville Medicine Co,
Gentlemen : . '
During Christmas of last year I had
an attack of the Grippe and at closely
following intervals I ha two other
attacks. These attacks left my sys
tem in a very weakened condition and
soon a severe cough developed. This
cough ran on into July of this yean
andbacam so severe that I thought
if; had gone into consumption or if
it had not would soon do so.
I would also spit up a very ugly
looking mixture and in the morning
! when I got up I could hardly breathe
: until I had cleared my lungs and
throat of this mucus. When I began
I coughing it up it would nearly choke
me. This, too, seemed to be getting
worse all the time until I reached the
place where I did not know what to
I took the medicine the doctor had
given me and other treatments but
none of it did he any good. I was
just about ready to give upwhen Mr.
Wall told me to try your Lung-Vita.
I did so and after the first few doses
began to improve. I have taken only
part of a large bottle, but I nave im
proved to such an extent that I con
sider myself Just about well. How
ever, I am going to take another bot
tle to be sure.
I cannot say enough for Lung-Vita
and would not take anything for the
good it has done me. I am recom
mending it to everyone. I know that
suffers with throat or lung trouble
and only wish that I could see more
of the people who suffer in this way
so that I could tell them what Lung
Vita has done for me.
Yours very truly,

TREATED BY FOUR DOCTORS
Columbia, Tenn., R. 3, Feb. 15, 1916.
Gentlemen: Your splendid medicine,
Lung-Vita, has done so much for me
that I want to let others suffering as
I was know about it. For several
years I was in very feeble health and
I had four hemorrhages from the
lungs in eight months. I lost weight,
and he doctors said I had consump
tion. Four doctors treated me with
out results. Three years ago -I heard
of Lung-Vita and began taking it.
When I had taken five bottles I con
sidered myself cured, and I have not
had a hemorrhage since. I have
gained fifteen pounds in flesh, and
my family physician says my lungs
are healed and well. I feel so grate
ful that I do not have words to ex
press my appreciation of your medi
cine. I believe it saved my life. I
wish you every success in your great
fight against consumption.
MRS. MINNIE SHORT.
For more than two thousand years consumption(tu
berculosis of the lungs) has been recognized by the
medical pofession as an incurable disease. Through
all these ages that silent, but relentless, emissary of q
Death has been gathering in its untold thousands of
victims, and each succeeding year has been seen an
alarming increase in the death-toll of this disease.
Statistics show that every three minutes some one in
the United States dies from consumption.
For years medical science has been looking and
searching and experimenting, trying to find an effec
tive remedy for consumption; but up to the present
decade, the disease has baffled all attempts to stop it,
once the gems get a foothold in the human system.
Knowing that consumption has been universally
recognized as an incurable disease for so long a time,
we do not expect you to believe us immediately when
we say that an effective .relief for consumption has
been found. We did not believe it ourselves when we
first heard of it. We said, "It is impossible; itis all
a fake." But when confronted with an array of facts
comprising the history of its achievements extending
over a period of two years, we were forced to give
up and admit the truth of the claim.
The medicine is called "Lung-Vita," which signifies
"life for the lungs."
Before allowing the name of the Nashville Medicine 90,
Company to become associated with Lung-Vita, a
thorough investigation of the medicine was made. In
this way we learned the absolute, unvarnished truth
concerning every case brought to our notice in which
Lung-Vita had been used; and in making this public
announcement of the discovery of Lung-Vita, based
on the result of this investigation, we determined to
present the facts just as we found them and let YOU
be the judge as to the value of Lung-vita as a treat
ment for Consumption. If a medicine for Consump
tion has been found, the world ought to know it, and
it is your duty, reader you who are reading these
words to become interested in the matter, whether
you or any of your people have consumption or not;
because if Lung-Vita has proven to be an effective
treatment for consumption, you should, in the inter-
TROUBLED WITH ASTHTMA SINCE
Bandera, Texas, July 29, 1916.
Nashville, Medicine Co.,
Ever since 1 was a small boy I have
been troubled with asthma, though
my case was not bad until 1906, when !
I grew worse and tried everything
that was recommended for my case, j
Nothing Beemed to give me per
manent relief, so I came to Texas in !
1911. I found the climate helped me,
some and my .spells got lighter, but j
1 still grew weaker. In 1916 Lung-1
Vita was recommended and sent to j
me". I have used four large bottles
and have not had a spell of asthma
since I began Us use.
I have withheld this letter to be
sure that I could x honestly recom
mend it to others' JWielleve it to
be the best medicine for lung troubles
that has ever buv? uced on the
market, and I can, from experience,
cheerfully recommend it to anyone
Buffering with asthma.
Yours very truly,
JOHN W. ETHERIDGE.

Hohenwald, Tenn., May, 9, 1916.
Gentlemen: My wife began to im
prove from the first dose taken of
Lung-Vita. She had a terrible cough
and was spitting up considerably
seemed to be bordering on tubercul
osis. Hence, I was very uneasy about
her. I saw your advertisement and
decided at once to try Lung-Vita. I
ordered a bottle and she began to
get better after taking the first dose
and is entirely well. We think it a
great medicine and do most heartily
recommend it to anyone suffering
w ith any kind of lung trouble.
Yours very truly.

sufferer from asthma since I was
thirteen years old: have been so
bad many times that I could not
speak to my children, nor make my
wants known to themi I have
taken three small-sized bottles of
Lung-Vita, which has entirely
cured my asthma. I feel as well
as I ever did in my life, and sleep
better than I ever did. Anyone
wishing to speak with me or write

Lung-Vita will find me at 79 Car

THE BAPTIST VANGUARD MAN
CONFESSES HIS INABILITY TO
COPE WITH THE PEOPLE'S
Every time the Vanguard has any
thing to say about "de issue" either in
the Btate or nation a certain little
lon.g-distant editor In Arkansas has a
spell. We very often refrain from
putting in a jjood word on that very
account. We hate to see him turn
red so much and pull his long hair,
but we must keep the people In
The editor of the Vanguard in the
above little squib proves himself to
be both a coward and Incompetent,
for when he says that he refrains
from saying a good word or doing a
good deed because some other editor
takes him to task he simply proves
himself a coward. For he who would
refuse to do a helpful thing for the
people or neglect a plain duty for
fear of criticism is unworthy of pub
lic trust. A public servant must not
only know what Is right but he must
also have the courage to do what is
right, even 'thou every little long-
distant editor in the world should turn
as red as fire and pull all of th
balr out of his head. In neglecting
to say a good word for a good cause
he stultifies both himself and abuses
that cause. And then why should the
editor of the Vanguard be so solicr
tous about the welfare of- any little
long-haired editor that was opposing
him and a good cause? The truth
about it is that the Vanguard man Is
incompetent to (pe with Hid situa
tion and what he dares si. abv.ut the
Dod tauso tn which lie relVis are
simply t'vil statements, ir.tr ilhs and
gioss misrepreHe'.italions of the facts
and the lm'-i-distant editor to whom
he refers simply proves the lalsity of
his statements an Cpoinis n it, to the
f.eople the wretched system of mis
representations; and henco proves
hint to be n huge joko in U cilitorlat
I'olicy. The Vanguard man knoW3
full well that his public statements
will not stand the test of logical rea
soning. Tlie troui'ie is tno iihik-uis-tant
editor punctures his gas balloon
and leaves him a llattened out humil
iated deceiver of public confidence.
he People's Defender wooll readily
gree villi any public statement the
anguard might make provided that
(lie Vanguard woum leu me irutn
about public questions and discuss
ighleously public issues. But the
Vanguard wishing to mislead the peo
ple by misrepresenting the truth musj

keep silent or have its policy held up'
to the public ga.e; and ra her thin
have its wicked policy slvnvn up it
refrains from having anything to say
about "de work." Never mind, Bro.
Vanguard man, about sympathizing
with the editor of the People's De
fender. Say what you have got to
say. If it is right the People's De
fender man will -agree with you. but if
it is wrong he will tell the. people so.
But the real .unvarnished truth is the
Vanguard man has no issue that is
honorable and therefore cannot pro
duce an honorable argument. The ed
itor of the People's Defender again
calls the people's attention to the fact
that the Vanguard would flay them
alive were it not that It fears the
People's Defender; for the Vanguard
has no regard for the truth when It
comes to forming public sentiment to
back-w its nefarious purposes and
to sustain the autocratic rule of a
few would-be lords. The Vanguard is
an autocratic sheet that does not be
lieve in the rule of the people; The
People's Defender Is opposed to autoc
racy. People's Defender.
