Does Your Blood Beautify
or uglify? It must do one or the other. Blood that is pure, sends a nuddy
tint to the cheeks, keeps the skin fresh and clear, and beautifies the features.
Impure blood makes the skin sallow, covers the face with pimples, blotches
and blackheads, and uglifies the complexion. Your blood is what you make
it or allow it to be a beautifier or an uglifier.
If you wish to have your face look fresh, rosy, clear and attractive, keep the
blood pure, red and healthy with the aid of
MR. RICHARD WRIGHT.
On the occasion of his recent visit
to Davenport Mr. "Cooper was visited
by hundreds of persons suffering from
various disorders, to whom he -explained
his theories and medicines.
Many of these tested his claims with
gratifying results. Among them was
Richard Wright of Port Byron, 111.,
who has made a statement regarding
his experience, as follows:
"I have been sorely afflicted with
stomach and bowel troubles for a long
time. I had chronic diarrhoea, which
robbed me of my strength. My appe
tite was very low, and what little I did
eat seemed to do me no good, for my
stomach and dig3stive organs were
weak and out of order. My body was
racked with pain from head to foot
splitting headache and general weak
ness. I had reached the all in" stage,
Nothing I took in the way of medicine
gave me any relief I was dragging
out a miserable existence.
"I called on Mr. Cooper while he was
in Daveuport, and purchased some of
his New Discovery medicine. Its effect
was marvelous my troubles began
dropping off like leaves in autumn, un
til now, after having taken a full treat
rnent, I am feeling in splendid shape
My appetite is good, and I can eat any
thing with no bad after effects. My
bowel trouble has been corrected, and
I have gained in flesh and strength.
owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. Cooper
and, his remarkable medicine."
The Cooper remedies can now be ob
tained in Rock Island at the Harper
House pharmacy. , -

the best complexion beautifier you can buy. They are better than powders,
bleaches, washes or cosmetics, which simply cover up the defects. Beecham's
Pills remove the cause of the troubles by enriching and purifying the blood.
Liver spots, enlarged pores, blackheads, pimples and all disfiguring blotches
disappear after a chort course of Beecham's Pills. Their1 good effects are quick-
ly felt and seen. They regulate the bowels, keep the liver active, improve the
digestion and rid the blood of all the impurities that mar the beauty of the
face and skin. The eyes brighten, the step becomes elastic, the spirits buoyant
