grateful surplse. 1 was almost immediately well
again, anil was able to work upon my farm a usual,
whereas, before the application of the plaster, I
could do nothing, aud every step gave me pain. A
few weeks since, one vear from the first attack, the
disease returned, but I am happy to say the second
tinned a cllicrclous a the first, and I am now will.
My w ife wishes me to add that one plaster has
cured herofa very lame back. We think there I
