Hepeis Attack of Death.
"Five years ago two doctors told
mo I had only two years to live." This
startling statement was made by Still
man Green. Malachite. Col. "They told
me 1 would die with consumption. It
was up to me then to try the best
lung medicine and I began to use Dr.
King's New Discovery. It was well I
did. for today I am working and be
lieve I owe my life to this great throat
and lung cure that has cheated the
grave of another victim." Its folly
to suffer with coughs, colds or other
throat and lung troubles now. Take
