If You Need He
Let Me Know It
Tell Mc of Some Sick One and Let Me
Send My Book
No Money Is Wanted
It you arc not well plonso tell mo tho trouble tell njft
which book you iieotl jfKi
That Is all I ask just a postal card with the name ofi
somo one who needs help j
I have spent a lifetimo tn learning how to cure theas
troubles Year after year I have porfected the treatiaentj
until It 1b almost sure I want you to know about It
You may take the treatment at my risk if you wily
You will not have a penny to pay if It falls
With the book I will send an order on your nearest
druggist for six bottles of Dr Snoops Restorative I wlllf
authorize your druggist to let you take It a month at myj
risk If it succeeds tho cost is 550 If It falls I will pay
druggist myself
your
I will leave tho decision to you 41
Dont think that this is Impossible for I do Just as I
say I havo done it in over half a million cases already
It Is truo that I can not nlvyays succeed Sometimes a
cause like cancer makes a cure impossible But those
cases are rare and I am willing to take tho risk
It is also true that not all people are honest But tho
cost is only 5 0 and experience has proved that very fewri
of the cured will avoid It 5
My records for fivo years show that 39 out of each <
who accept those six bottles pay and pay gladly I am ll
satisfied with that
Please note what that record means
They are till difficult cases where six bottles are taken
In simple casos the patient gets a bottlo or two from his
druggist Yet 39 In each 40 of those difficult conditions aroS
cured >
curedThat
That is remarkable lecord which has
never anIj
proached In the history of medicine There Is no other
remedy which any physician Would dare to offer on such a
plan as mine
There are 39 chances in iO that I can cure you no mat
ter how severe your case no matter what else has fallod
Jly success comes from knowing how to strengthen the
inside nerves
Every vital organ In the body gets its power from these 1
nerves When some organ grows weak and fails in Its I
duty its nerve power is weak It is just like an engine that
neetlB more steam
My Restorative brings back that nerve power It re
moves tho cause of the trouble And most of the conditions
I treat can never be cured In any other way Somo of you
know this already
My book will make tho matter clear
If you arc sick or a friend Is sick please dont fail to
write me
You havo everything to gain and nothing to lose by it
Your future is at stake If I take tho risk wont you take
tho remedy
Wont you at Ibast write for my book
Simply state which book you want
and address Dr Shoop Box COO
