Your Boy Wont Live a Month.
So Mr. Gilman Brown, of 34 Mill St,
South Gardner, Mass., was told by the
doctors. His son had Lung trouble,
following Typhoid Malaria, and he
spent three hundred and seyenty-flye
dollars with doctors, who finally gave
him up, saying: "Your boy wont live a
month." He tried Dr. King's New
Discovery and a few bottles restored
him to health and enabled him to go
to work a perfectly well man. He says
he owes his present good health to the
use of Dr. King's New Discovery, and
knows it to be the best in the world
for Lung trouble. Trial Bottles Free
