I. V. HARDY'S EYE BALM.
THE best, quickest, and decidedly the most
pleasant remedy ever offered, for the cure of
sore, weak, or diseased eyes. It matters not
how long they have been sore, this balm will
cure them. Cases of short duration it cures
in from 12 to 48 hours.
From the Clerk of the Court of Randolph
County.
"I have nsed I. V. Hardy's Eye Balm in nine
cases, and effected a cure in every case prompt
ly. J. J. ALLEN."
The Huntsville Recorder, of Feb. 23, 1854
says that, "the great number and remarkable
cures that have come under our observation, has
fully convinced us that I. V. Hardy's is a great
man, and that his wonderful Eye Balm is the
roost valuable combination for the cure of sore
eyes that has ever been produced. All success
to him in his new enterprise say we."
The Liberty Tribune of March 3, 1854, Bays,
have you sore eyes, if so be sure and get Har
dy's Eve Balm."
Mr. Harty I hare used and known to be
used your Eye Balm in numbers of cases of
sore eyes, some of one and two years standing,
and it effects cures in every case. Cases of short
duration it cures in less time than I thought
possible for any remedy to have done it. It is
the sine qua non iin our country for sore eyes,
and will be Pa all when once tried.
