Found a Cure.
Mr. Carl A. Schorpp, resid
ing at Searstown, 111., says:
For two long years I doctored
for a pain In my back and
chest and still I got no relief,
so one day I read about others
being cured by Dr. Barts &
Co. and so I made up my mind
to consult them and see what
they had to say about my case.
They immediately placed me
under their treatment and to
my good fortune Inside of a
week, after starting the same
the pains all left me ant I
have not. bad any since ana
that is w about three weeks
ago. Before I took Dr. Bartz
& Co.'s treatment, it took all
the money I could earn to pay
doctors' and druggists' bills
and. I am certainly glad that
there Is an end to that. Since
I; started Dr. Barts & Co.'s
treatment. I haven't lost an
hour at my-work."

Profit-Sharing Plan in the History of Man
Is Stronger and Better
Than Ever in the Tri-Cities
The buying public should follow this plan, for by going to merchants that give the "S. & H.
green stamps they buy cheaper and in addition receive a substantial discount ,in the way of
the stamps, which procure for tiem many useful and necessary articles for home use. The
merchant that gives you "S. & H." stamps is enabled to give you the most for your money for
the reason that he receives cash, with which he is in a position to pay cash and thereby re
ceives a discount which his customers benefit by in securing "3. & H." green stamps.
