After Twenty Years.
Baltimore. April 20, 18S7. For over
twenty years I have been troubled with
ulcerated bowels and bleeding piles, and
grew very weak and thin from constant
loss of blood. I have used four bottles of
B. B. B., and have gained 15 pounds in
eight, and feel better in general health
than I have for ten years. I recommend
your B. B. B. as the best medicine 1 have
ever used, and owe my improvement to
the use of Botanic Blood Balm.

A GOOD EXPERIMENT.
Meridian, Miss., July 12, 1887. For
a number of vears I have suffered untold
agony from the effects of blood poison.
I had my case treated by several promt'
nent physicians, but received but little, if
any relief. I resorted to all sorts of pat
ent medicines, spending a large amount
of money, but yet getting no better. My
attention was attracted by the cures said
to have been affected by B. l. IV, and
commenced taking it merely as an exper-
ment, having but little faith in the re
sults. To my utter surprise I soon com
menced to improve, and deem nusclf lo
day a well and hearty person all owing
to the excellent Qualities of B. B. B. I
cannot commend it too highly lo those
suffering from blood poison.
