Our Ps and....
Our I's are just as strong as
they were fifty years ago, when
we have cause to use them.
Ihit we have less and less cause
to praise ourselves, since others
do the praising, and v.e are
more than willing for you to sec
us through other eyes. This
is how we look to S. P. Boyce,
wholesale anel retail druggist,
Duluth, Minn, who after a
quarter of a century of obser?
"I have sold Ayer's Sarsapa
rilla for more than 25 years,
both at wholesale anel retail,
and have never heard anything
but worels of praise from niy
customers; not a single com?
plaint has ever rcacheel me. I
believe Ayer's Sarsapnrilla to
be the best blood purifier, that
has been iutroeluced to the gen?
eral public." This, from a
man who has sold thousauels of
dozens of Ayer's Sarsaparilla,
is strong testimony. But it
only echoes popular sentiment
the world over, which has,
"Nothing: but words of praise
for Ayer's Sarsaparlila."
