There is nothing like Asthmaline. It
brings instant relief, even in the worst
cases. ' It cures when all else fails.
The Rev. C. F. Wells, of Villa Ridge, 111., says : "Your trial bottle
of Asthmaline received in good condition. I cannot tell you how thank,
ful I feel for the good derived from it. 1 was a slave, chained with putrid
sore throat and asthma for ten years. I despared of ever being enred. I
saw your advertisement for the cure of this dreadful and tormenting dis
ease, asthma, and thought you had overspoken yourselves, but resolved
to give it a trial. To my astonishment, the trial acted like a charm.
Send me a full-sized bottle."
- We want to send to every sufferer a trial treatment of Asthmaline,
similar to the one that cured Mr. Welts. We will send it by mail POST
PAID, ABSOLUTELY FREE OF CHARGE, to any sufferer who will .
write for it, even on a postal. Never mind, though you are aespairing,
however bad your case, Asthmaline will relieve and cure. The worse
