Rheumatism Cured in Three Days.
N. B. Langley, Madison, Wis., says:
"I was almost helpless with rheuma
tism for about five months. Had it in
my neck so I could not turn my head,
and all through my body. I tried
three doctors and many remedies
without any relief whatever until' t
procured Dr. Detchon's Relief . for
Rheumatism. In a few hours the pain
was relieved, and in three days the
rheumatism was completely cured, and
I was at work. Sold by Jtto Grotjan,
