the paper. It was the exact size of a dol

the color. It was a clean, dark brown.
The man explained: "You see, I acci

the bill. I don't know whether it's any

I desire once more to bear mv testi
mony to the value of Allcrck'3 Porous
Plasters. I have used them for 25 years
past, and can conscientiouly commend
them as the best external remedy that I
hive known. Years s?o, when thrown
from a carriage and seriously injured, I
gave them a thorough trial. In a very
short time the pain that I was suffering
disappeared, and within a week I was

when suffering from a severe cougb,
which threatened pulmonary difficulties.
which 1 was recommended to go to f lor-
ida to relieve, I determined to test the
plasters aga:n. I applied them to my
chest and between the shoulder blades.
and in less than a fortnight was entirely
cured. On still another occasion, when
suffering from an aitack of rheumatism
in the shoulder to such an extent that I
could hardly raise my arm, I again re
sorted to the plasters, and within a very
few days the rheumatism entirely disap
peared. I have them constantly by me,
whether at borne or abroad. My family
as well as myself have found them to be
a sovereign remedy, both lor external
and internal troubles. I never had but
one Sidney difficulty in my life, and the
application of the plasters cured me in a
week. I desire, as I said before, to bear
mv testimony in a public way to their
efficacy, and I know of no betier wav of
doing it than by giving you my personal
