What are Krause's Headache Capsules!1
To be brief will tell jou they are unlike
anything prepared in America. A few
years since an acquaintance who for years
had been a headache suffjrer, until his
system had been ruined, was advised to
go to the Carlsbod Springs, Germany, to
try the ilTocts of the water. While the
waters were apparently a benefit, still
they were not a cure. While at the springs
he heard a great deal about the court
physician, Dr. Krause. who aftewards
became famous the world over owing to
the Mackenzie controversy during and
after the last illness of emperor William.
Lie consulted Krause in regard to his
heacsche, and to quote the doctors words:
"Ilere is a prescription which if taken
as I direct, will prevent or stop any kind
of headache, no matter what the cause.
You will find the frequency of the at
tacks will diminish and by taking the
capsules when you feel the approach of a
headache you will never have another,"
The patient was practically cured and
with bis permission I prepare, and sell
what I have seen fit to call Krause's
Headache Capsules to headache victims.

Physicians frequently make mistakes
in treatment of heart disease. The rate
of sudden dea'hs is daily increasing.
Uundri d ; become victims of the ignor
ance of physicians in the treatment of
this disease. One in four persons has a
diseased heart. Shortness of breath, pal
pitation and fluttering, irregular pulse,
c.oking sensation, asthmatic breathing,
pain or tenderness in side, shoulder or
arm, weak or hungry spells, are svm
toms of heart disease. Dr. Miles' New
Heart Cure is the only reliable remedy.
Thousands testify to its wonderful cures.
