M. T. Skiff, formerly business
manager for W. J. Scanlan, the
Irish Comedian, suffered with
rheumatism for years without re
lief until he brought a bottle of
Drummond 's Lightning Remedy.
Two bottles made a well man of
him. There are a thousand reme
dies for rheumatism, but none
have received the unsolicited tes
timonials from prominent people
as showvn by Drummond 's Light
ning Remedy. Ask your druggist
for it, or send to the Drummond

WVe have received from the New
ry Mill a sample of as fine cloth,

to Lowell for your fine texture of
goods as formerly,
"AsPy Fort sAp atouu.,"
That's a good maxim, but it will
not work as a rule in the p~urchase
of a remedy for Rheumatism.
Any of the cheap nostrums, will
not effect a cure-in fact none of
them will. Don't trifle with life
and prolong agony, Get Dr.
