" l bare boen a crcat siifTercr from

J'.. I'arkkurst, ol oonsocket, It. 1., " li.iv-

of the time bcing conDned to my bed. I
liail tnkcn hunurcUs ol dollara vrorth of
mcdicine, with no relicf, uutil I was in-
lucod to try a uottle ol Athlonhoros.
The first tbree doses resulte'd in my hav-
inj; tho best niglit'a sleep that 1 had cn-
joyed for tbree years, and by tho timo the
hrst hottle was taken 1 realized that 1 was
on the road to complete recovery. I have
siiicc taken six bottles and atn now able
to u.tcnd to my busincss and considur ray-
pelf a well mau."
iMrs. C. N. Paige, of Boltonville, Vt.,
' 1 hrst saw Athlophoros .idvertised in a
paper, and as it was only recoinniended for
rbeiimatism and ueuralgia I had great
failh to believe it r.ould do nic sotne good.
My husband, tbercfore, sent for a bottle.
1 had been a great BuDerer from ueuralgia
for ycars, and had spells whcn no one wbo
saw me thought 1 could live. Many
timcs I have wisbcd dcath would cnd my
agony. The pain would commcnre in the
pit of my htomarh and go from thereright
through my heart. I had eniployed doc
tors wbo were thought very skillful, but l
gnt no benefit from tlipm. 1 had these
spells every Iwo or thrco wceks for over
two years before taking Athlophoroi.
That was one year ago last April and 1
have had only two of them bince, the last
one during the winter. I took tlien part of
anothcr bottlc and have had uonc since.
AVords can ncver exprcss tlie relief I feel
at bcing rid of sucli agony as I sullcred
whcn I had those spellb."
Mrs. ilarriet Strong, of 'Westville, Ct.,
tells this f.traight-forward story :
"I had tbe rhcuuiatism, wliich settled
in mv knees and hips. Tho ioints were so
stiirand the pain so great that 1 could not
walk, tmt was obligcd to move aroutul ma
chair. Several doctors did all tbev could
forme, but I was no betler. "Wliilc in
this condition, sitting iu my chair by the
wiudow reading a paper, I kiw au advcr
tipmcnt of Atbloplioro-. 1 tliiiiiht I
would try it and sent for a bottle. When
they brougbt it to me 1 told them I con
sidored it a dollar thrnwn away, ns I bail
not a partirle of faitb, but 1 commciiced
taking it and after tbetbirddoso 1 thought
I fclt a change for the bctter. I continucd
to use it as directed uutil I havotaken four
bottles. Hlrange as it may i-ecni, I amper
fcctly curi'd and nni aliout tbe bouse all
