lution is certainvictory
I. V. HARDY'S EYE BALM.
FT1HE best, quickest, and decidedly the most
JL pleasant remedy ever offered, for the cure of
sore, weak, or diseased eyes. It matters not
how long thev have been sore, this balm will
cure them. Cases of snort duration it cures
in from 12 to 48 hours.
From the Clerk of the Court of Randolph
"I have used I. V. Hardy's Eye Balm In nine
case, and effected a cure in every case prompt
ly. J. J. ALLEN.'
me fiuntsvuie iteeoraer oi feo. z, 1004
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 tnat nis wonderful t,yt isaim is tne
most valuable combination for the cure of sore
eyes that has ever been produced. All suceess
to him in his new enterprise sav we."
The Liberty Tribune of March 3, 1854, says:
"nave you sore eyes, if so be sure and get Har
dy's Eye Balm."
. Mr. rlarty 1 have 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 'n all when once tried.
Centerville, Dec. 20, 1853.
We could offer hundreds of just such recom
mendations as the above, (some from Physic
ians) but deem it unnecessary.
Try it, and if it does not do as we say, denounce
it, but till tried Keep silent, or lend it your in
fluence, for it is no humbug.
This Balm is prepared only in Huntsville
