T,is is to certify that I sold the for
mula for my Pile Salve to M.. W. E.
Pelham, the Drugg'st, over a year ago,
and that no one else is authom ized to
-prepare it. I have used it in my prae
tice for a qua-ter of a. century, and have
never known it to fail in relieving and
curing the most obstinate cases of Piles
or Iiemorhoids. Mr. Peiham supplies it
in jars at 50 cents.
Full directions furnished with the
Salve. Dr. P. B. RUFF.
We were misinformed last week in
stating that Rev. Sidney T. Riser had
