For over nine years I suffered untold
misery from inflammatory rheumatism,
from which physicians as well as vari
ous specifics afforded no relief.
At last I concluded to give Klckapoo
Indian Sagwa a trial. "With less
than three bottles I have been complete
ly cured, and have stayed cured. I keep
the Sagwa in the house all the time, and
I find it a great help to me at various
times when I feel run down, and con
sider it the best tonic in the world.
