A Complet Cur cf C -- .upe
Gentlemen-I had a sore on my upper
lip for eight years. Seven dilTerent doc
tors attempted in vain to heal it. One
gave me a small vial for five dullars,
which was a 'certain cure." It is need
less to say that it did ne nogood. About of
two years ago I became quite uneasy, as
people thought I had a cancer, andI
took a course of eighteen bottles of S. S.
S. The result has been a complete cure. at
The ulcer or cancer healed beautifully,
leaving scarcely a perceptible scar. 0
From that day I have been in excellnt
health, the Specific having purified my
blood thoroughly, increased my appe- orc
tite and perfected my digestion. In a
word, I feel like a new woman, and,
best of all, the eight year ulcer = gone y

Gentlemen--My blood was in such a

flesh was firm. W. T. WILKINS. no
