to get a ?10 bill changed. Ihe clerk
was unable to accommodate the jud?e,

pulled out a roll of bills and advanced

the last fifteen yearswlth a lunc trouble. Sev
eral members of the family on my mother's
side of the house hid died with consumption,
and the doctors Were all agreed tn their opin
ion that I had consumption also. I had all the
dlstresslne symptoms of that terrible disease.
I have spent thein-andsnf dollars to arrest the
n''4rth"' this disease. 1 have employed all ot
" usual method-, not only In my own case.
but In the treatinrnt.it other members of my
familj.but temporary relit f was all that I ob
tained I was uiintforanymiuu.il labor for
several years. Uy chance I came into possess
slon of a pamphlet on"Illoodand Skin Dis

Swift's Specific rlalnilni; tint he himself
had been creatly benefited by Its uso
id some luni; troubles I resolved to try
It. About four years ao I commenced to take
.- S. -..according to directions I found It an
Invigorating tonic, and have uvd about fifty
bottles. The results are most remarkable.
My couh has left me. my strength has res
turned, and 1 weigh sixty pounds more than I
ever did in my life It has been three years
since I stopped the useol the medicine, but I
have bad no return of the disease, and there
are no pains or weakness felt In my lungs. I
do the hardest kind ot mechanical work, and
feel as well as I ever did since I was a boy.
These. I know, are wonderful statements to
make, but 1 am honest when I sav that I owe
I my existence and health to --wilt's --peclflc.
It is the only medicine that brought me any
permanent relief. I do not say that Swift's
l-perlnc will do this In every case, but most
! positively affirm that it has done this much for
I me. and I would be recreant to the duty I owe
