from muscular rheumatism. I tried every
known remedy, consulted the. liest physi?
cians; visited Hot Springs, Ark., three times,
spending sinoo there, besides doctors- bills;
hut could obtain only temporary relief. My
flesh was wasted away so that 1 weighed
only ninety-throe pounds; my left arm and
le^ were drawn out of shape, the muscles
being tw isted up in knots. I was unable to
dress myself, except with assistance, and
could only hobble about by using ;t cane. I
had no appetite, and was assured, by tho
doctors, that 1 could not live. The pains, at
times, were so awful, that I could procure
relief only by means of hypodermic Injec?
tions of morphine. 1 had my limbs bandaged
in clay, in sulphur, in poultices; but these
gave only temporary relief. After trying
everything, and suffcri|ig the most awful
tortures, 1 began to take Aycr'S Sarsapai ilki.
Inside of two mouths, I was able to walk
Without :i cane. In three mouths, my limbs
began to strengthen, and in the course of a
year, I was cured. My weight has increased
to 1C5 pounds, and I am now able to do my
full day's work as a railroad blacksmith."
