Very Remarkable Cure of Diarrhoea.
"About six years ago for the first
time in my life I had a sudden se
vere attack of diarrhoea," says Mrs.
Alice Miller, of Morgan, Texas. I
got temporary relief, -but it came
again and again, and for six long
years I have suffered more misery
and agony than I can tell. It was
worse than death. My husband
spent hundreds of dollars for physi
cians' prescriptions and treatment
without avail. Finally we moved
to Bosque county, our present home,
and one day I happened to see an
adjifir-frisemeut of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Reme
dy with a testimonial of a man who
had been cured by it. The case
was so similar to my own that I
concluded to try the remedy. The
result was wonderful. I could
hardly realize that I was well again,
or believe it-eould be so after having
suffered so long, but that one bottle
of medicine, costing but a few cents
cured me." For sale by Cox Co ,
