THE STORY OF A GREAT DISCOVERY. The hardships of a traveling sales man's life had wrecked my health. My family physician diagnosed my case as chronic gastritis, brought on by disease cf the liver and complicated by kidney trouble. I consulted specialists who confirmed his diagnosis. Months pass ed, I grew worse and was finally com pelled to give up my work. By chance I heard of some wonder ful cures which had resulted from drlnk ing the water of a little spring in the Mineral Belt of South Carolina, a pic ture of which spring appears on this page. In desperation I tried it. On the second day I thought that I could notice some improvement; at the end of the first week my appetite and diges tion had returned and I was much Stronger; at the end of the third week I felt that I was completely cured. That was six years ago and I still enjoy per fect health. Knowing that it had restored my health and believing that it had saved my life, I bought the Spring. I then determined to see whether the water would cure others as it had cured me. I shipped ten gallons absolutely free of charge to each of one thousand sufferers from chronio diseases. Only four reported no benefit from the use of the ten gallons. The other nine hundred and ninety -six reported decided benefit or complete cures. Many claimed that the water had saved their lives. I realized that I had discovered one of the world's greatest mineral springs, and I decided to devote my life to it. But how could I make the world listen ; how could I make them believe my story? The precious water was running to waBte while thousands were suffering. I said, I will make them believe me by showing my faith in them and in the curative power of the Spring. I will tell them that the water shall cost them nothing if it fails to benefit. The world listened I Some wrote for proof and I sent them the letters which I had received from their fellowmen. Others accepted my ?SOT without question. Thousands written me reporting relief and permanent cure of a great variety of ?hronic diseases. But some of the water still ran to for lack of belief. I determined tat ww> trop should be used to re Here the Bufferings of humanity. To this end I requested the advertising manager of the Presbyterian to come to see me. At my desk I open ed my mail and showed him the lexers from men and women from all parts of the country who had suffered and who had found relief. I gave him my letter files and induced him to spend several hours reading my past correspondence with those who were using the water. I showed him the chemical analysis and letters from physicians explaining the curative properties of the water. lie believed, and as a result he has written this announcement for me. WILL YOU BELIEVE? I do not ask your implicit faith ; only enough to try the water for three weeks as I did. I estimate that I drank about ten gallons and I, therefore, offer gladly to ship you two five gallon demijohns on my guarantee that if you find that it does not benefit you I will promptly refund the price, which is only $2.00. You must pr iise to drink the water in accordance rfith the instructions which I will send you and return the empty demijohns.
