structural unsoundness of the Lungs
I all these symptoms being caused by th
Liver being sluggish, and the stomao

conditions yield readily to Simmons

variably brought back to health.
"I have been down ten years wit
Liver Dislase. I have had a sever
pain in my left 'side for three years
with dry cough; this last Fall the coug
became severe, and I coughed up lial
a gallon a day. The best doctors i
Atlanta and'my settlement said it wa
the last stage of Consumption. I 'wa
weakened down so by New Years dai
that I had to taka my bed. I sent an
