Said He Would Die
"In 1903 we wrote you regard
ing my husband, who was suf
fering from heart trouble. He
was superanuated by the North
Georgian Conference. Ten doc
tors at different times said he
would die. You advised Dr.
liles' Heart Remedy and Re
storative Nervine; we did as
advised, and improvement was
apparent from the very first. He
recovered and the Conference in
1904 gave him a charge. He
never felt better, although he
has very heavy work and does
a great deal of camp meeting
work. I am so glad we took
your advice and gave him the
medicine, and feel that I ought
to let you know of the wonder
ful good results from its use."
MRS. T. S. EDWARDS,
This proves what Dr. Miles'
Heart Remedy will do. Get a
bottle from your druggist and
take it according to directions.
It does not matter whether your
heart is merely weak, or you
have organic trouble, if it does
not benefit you take the empty
bottle to your druggist and get
your money back.

have done to improve railroad trans
portation in tlio territory traversed by
the rivers, there would not lie any talk
about "the decline of river tratlic."

out of congress attributed to all man

There's always one store in every
town that pulls just a little harder for
your trade than some other store that
appreciates your trade just a little more
and offers you just a little better induce
ments? Certainly you do.
Does it not seem right to yourself
that you should buy your goods as cheap
ly as possible and get full value for every
dollar you spend? Certainly so.
Then is it not plain to you that I could
not afford to advertise these facts to you
and tell you of my methods unless I could
make good and prove that I am right.
Think this over and come to nry store
and see for your self. Let's talk matters
over and figure on a bill of goods.
Come and convince your self that my
store is a good place to trade.
