If You Value Your Health
Read Every Word of
This Remarkable Story
It is told by one who has himself experienced
the regeneration in health which he encour
ages you to seek by the self-same means.
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.
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. I make you the
sole judge as to whether the water has
benefitted you, and as the Advertising
Manager of this paper has kindly con
sented to guarantee my guarantee to re
fund your money, if you are not bene
fitted, I hope you will feel perfectly
free to accept my offer.
This offer is extended to all who suffer
with any chronic disease, except cancer
and consumption, but I especially rec
ommend the water (or the treatment of
