lowing cases are cited: In 1881 Mrs. Mary
K. Sheed suffered terribly with chronic
neuralgia. She writes from 1110 Maryland
Avenue, Washington, D. C. In the first in
stance she states: "I suffered terribly with
neuralgia in the face very severe -attack
extending to back and shoulders suffered
intensely. Tried St. Jacobs Oil had parts
well rubbed at night in the 'morning all
pain 'gone, magically." June 10, 1887, she
writes from 224 Eleventh
Streett, S.uW.,
follows: "Four jrears
trill enre these troubles. Try them
you have nothing to lose, hut will grain
vigorous body. Price, 25c. per box
Sold Everywhere.
1 "Ef
ago I sen yo a vol
untary certificate setting forth the fact that
I had been a great sufferer with neuralgia in
my face, neck and shoulders. I obtained a
bottle of St. Jacobs Oil, and after three ap
plications I was entirely relieved from all
pain, and from that time to the present I
have never had a return. The effect was
miraculous." Again, Feb. 0, 1887, Mr. K.
G. Troll, St. Louis, Mo., writes: "In March,
1881, I suffered terribly with neuralgia had
suffered nearly three years. Applied St.
Jacobs Oil at 8.15 A. M. at 8.40 took the
rag off at 9 A. M. went to work. In less
than five minutes after that the pain was
gone. The one application cured me. Have
not had return of it since." Mr. E. W.
Spangler, Yqrk, Pa., June 17,1887, writes:
"Years ago had neuralgia am not subject to
it now. The cure by the use of St. Jacobs
Oil was permanent. There has been no re
currence of the painful affliction." Chas.
W._ Law, Jr., Potlstown, Pa., April 19, 1887,
writes: "Was troubled for years with neu
ralgia in neck and head. Tried St. Jacobs
Oil had tried different kinds of remedies
without effect. One bottle of the former did the
business. No return of pain and aches." In
almost every instance the reports are the same.
