KXUKALGIA FOR EIGHT YEARS.
Ilere is a miracle I At '.east Mr. Sol glimmers
who resides at 3VX Dearborn street, Chicago, say
so. and to hear bim tell of bis rapid cure by Dr.
Berry it certainty sounds like one.
" I sca-cely know how to begin," said Mr. Slim
mer, "tt tell you how I have suffered for the past
eight years. The agony was simply excruciatlnjr.
aud at oie time it took three men to hold me
down. 1 had a neuralgia of the kidneys and
bladder, and, although neuralgia is bad enough
when located in amy part of the body, when it
affects the kidntrvt the pain is unbearable. I
don't mi an to say that during these eu;tit years I
always a iffered io this way, but what 1 do mean
Is that n X for one moment was I entirely free

"And now Mr. for

One day, in looking

stop it. No doctor could relieve me and no medi
cine seemed to have anv effect. I bave been
treated by scores of doctors, have spent hun
dreds of dollars and bave swallowed thousands
ot bottles of medicine. One doctor in Chicago,
who I think knows nothing, but to whom most
physicians here send their skin cases treated
me, sent me South for one winter, and didn't do

chest and a disa
greeable hacking -"ibs T. carrillas.
cough, I had not been alarmed. But the
cough became so bad, the loss of flesh and
strength so marked, that I was thoroughly
cared, and at once went to consult a j-livsician
who is spoken of by other doctors as tlie best
lung sp'ia)ist in Chicago. 1 do not cere to give
his name, but it is enough to say that he told me
1 bad Consumption, and held out verv little hnry
of curing me. He said the lungs w ere too far
gone to do much for me. and that the best be
me a particle of good. The best skin specialists, ' could do would be to prolong my life a little and
not only in Chicago, but in thiB countrv. have
treated me, aud with the same result.
ALL THE DOCTORS FAILED.
"Every one of them failed to cure me, or even
benefit nre for any length of time. All the doc
tors in my part of the city know about my case,
and have been patiently waiting to see Dr. Berry
fail, as all others bave done; but, thanks to Dr.
Berry's skilL be didn't faiL He cured me, and
the doctors have got left for once.
CURED AT LAST.
"In November, 1S89, 1 had reached such a etata)
that if I couldn't gel relief I w anted to die. The
hutting, the burning and the crawling, as if ten
thousand ineects were crawling over my face,
were friuhtful. On November 13, ItttSJ, I called
first on Dr. Berry. After a careful examination,
not only of my skin, but of my whole txi.lv, he
pronounced me curable, and said he would "take
xuy case. This did not encourage me much, as
all of tbe other doctors w ho had treated me had
told m the same thing, but as I bad to do some
thing, and as I knew Dr. Berry had been won
derfully successful in some other skin disease
Cases, I began bis treatment.
"A month passed and I got no better, except
ing that the doctor had succeeded in relieving
the itching. In two months, however, the im
provement was very marked,and I began to have
hopes of a cure.
"There is scarcelv anything more to add. ex-
cept that Dr. Berry bas completely and perma
nently cured me. 1 know that tbe cure is
Tiermanent. as it bas been months now since I
Lave bud uuy of the disease show itself. 1 am
at perfect ease, never bave to rub or scratch any
more than others do, and can enjov my night's
sleep like the rest of mankind. During the six
years I suffered I had to snatch my sleep at in
tervals during the paroxysms of itching, and
w hen I remeinber how broken my rest then was.
1 can assure you that now 'sleep is very sweet.'
"1 bave told Dr. Berry that I should insist
npon having my cure published in tbe pa,iers,
but both the doctor and myself wanted to wait
to see that it was permanent, ith no sign of a
return. The doctor is now satisfied, and so am
1. and I can only add, as 1 began, that 'there is
no doctor in the world like Dr. Berry.' "
A SEVERE ATTACK OF RHEUMATISM.
Rheumatic pains are very prevalent In the
svititer season, and probably every one has suf
fered more or less from liiem duriiiM- the hist few
months. But when they grow so severe that one 1
is doubled uti and criiinled and can't move .
ftround, then it is ihnt the doctor who can cure
make me more comfortable.
"That seemed like my death warrant surely,
and I bad almost resigned mvself to die, when I
heard, most fortunately, of "Dr. Berry and the
great cures he was accomplishing. I went to see
him at once. What a difference there was be-
. tw een tne two aoctors I The fcrst said there was
' no hope and I must surely die; Dr. Berry told
( me that my rase was by no means hopeless, that
be WOUld tiUt me llnder treatment nt nnee anil
although be would not promise to cure me, he
believed that he could. That of itself was about
the best tonic he could have given me, and, with
hope again restored, I started in on the treat
ment. CURED AT LAST.
"By the end cf one month onlv I began to no
tice the good eflects. The cough was much bet
ter, scarcely any distress in breathing, appetite
picking np and stronger in every way. At the
end of three months and a half I was cured, and
instead of being iu the grave that one phvsician
destined me for I am attending to my business
as usual. I consider myself cured, and I know I
owe Dr. Berry my life. It is now three months
since I stoped bis treatment, and there has not
been any sjpiiof any return of the disease. Cer
tainly if during all this cold, damp weather of
tbe last winter, when everybody bas been suffer
ing from the grip and various other lung and
throat affections, and I here remained perfectly
well, without even a cough. I think I am justi
fied in considering that Dr. Berry has accom
plished a radical cure in mv case at least. He la
a grand, good doctor, and I can never do or say
enough to relay him for what he has done for

"My opinion of Dr. Berry. Is. of course, that of
all bis patients. A more upright, conscientious
and skillful physician cannot be found in the
United States, and when I say that I know what
I am talking bout. He cured me of acute

severe prostration, and I fully believe he saved

get me well quick, and he said be would do his
best. Every one knows w hat Dr. Berry's 'best'
is. and all I have to add is that in one week I was
better, and in two weeks I was well. How's that
for fast time? I have remained well, of course,
as Dr. Berry's medicines don't cure you for a few
weeks only, but they cure yon for good. He's a
great doctor, and I shall always go to him for
