early, because shrewd

"For five years, 1 suffered untold misery
from muscular rheumatism. I tried every
known remedy, consulted the liest physi?
cians, visited flotSprings, Ark.,three times,
spending ?1000 there, besides doctors' hills;
hut could obtain only temporary relief. My
flesh was wasted away so that I weighed
only ninety-three pounds; my left arm and
leg were drawn out of shape, the muscles
bring twisted up in knots. 1 was unable to
dress myself, except with assistance, and
rotdd only hohhlc about by using a cane, I
had no appetite, and was assured, by tho
doctors, that I could not live. The pains, at
times, were so awful, that I could procure
relief only by means of hypodermic Injec?
tions of morphine. I had tny limbs bandaged
In clay, In sulphur, In poultices; but these
gavo only temporary relief. After trying
everything, and suffering the most awful
tortures, I begnn to take Ayer's Sarsaparilla.
Inside of two months, I was able to walk
without a cane. In three months, my limbs
began to strengthen, and in the course of a
year, I was cured. My weight has increased
to 103 pounds, and I am now able to do my
full day's work as a railroad blacksmith."

The oar now contains about eighty
oans, each resembling a milk-oan and

fresh air pumped Into it through rubber
hose. The air is pumped into the oana
by means of a pump, which is located
in the oorner of tho oar and runs night
