ADVICE TO THE W. C. T. U.
Physical Culture Lecturer Endorses
Paine's Celery Compound.
Miss Lucy H. Hitchcock, lecturer, de?
partment of physical culture. Woman1!?
Christian Temperance Union, Vermont,
wrote on May 10, last:
"It affords me pleasure to add my tes?
timony with others regarding the healiDg
effects of Paine's celery compound upon
uu exhausted nervous system."
Aug. 12. 18117, she wroto: "As a rule I
do not endorse meilioines, but 1 believe
Paine's celery compounil to be of a differ?
ent order from the ordinary medicines.
Facts cannot he disputed. I have derived
so much benefit.from'the Compouod that
I am glad to heartily recommend it, hop?
ing others similarly afflicted may be re?
lieved. Any medicine that wlU relieve
suffering humanity is a blessing to the
A blessing to the world!
Paine's celery compound has been
proven to be the one great remedy that
really makes people well. This est.'ma

nestly directed toward the betterment of
others, and whose emtneuce in the W. C.

who stops to think. Hundreds of men
and women in every neighborhood are to?

load of ailments that a thorough refresh?

blood, more sleep and more regularity in
the bodily functions would completely do

"Prevent diseaso" is the wntchword of
the best medical thought of to-day.
