worked with considerable success.

that these people broke the rocks by
heating them and then pouring cold
water on them. From present indi

movement 'set on foot by the Wood

the Lascassaa mines will prove emi

that it does it will be the cause of
the opening of several mines in

To the Great South American Medicine Co. :
Dear Gents : I desire to say to you that I
have suffered for many years with a very seri
ous disease of the stomach and nerves. I tried
every medicine I could hear of but nothing
done me any appreciable pood until 1 was af
vised to try your Great South American Nervine
Tonic and Stomach and Liver Cure, and since
usiog several bottles of it I must say that I am
surprised at its wonderful powers to cure the
stomach and general nervous system. If every
one knew the value of this remedy as 1 do, you
vould not be able to supply the demand.

and I consider that every bottle did for me onb
hundred dollars worth of good, because I have
not bad a good night's Bleep for twenty years
on account of irritation, pain, horrible dreams,
and general nervous prostration, which has
been caused by chronic Indigestion and dys
pepsia of the stomach and by a broken dowm
condition of my nervous system. But now I can
lie down and sleep all n igh t as sweetly as a baby,

A SWORN CURE FOR ST. VITUS'S DANCE OR CHOREA.

My daughter, twelve years old, had been af

Vitus's Dance. She was reduced to a skeleton,
could not walk, could not talk, could not swal
low anything but milk. I had to handle her
like an infant. Doctor and neighbors gave her
up. I commenced giving her the South Ameri
can Nervine Tonic: the effects were very sur
prising. In three days she was rid of the ner

cured her completely. I think the South
