If You Pity a Sick Friend
Tell Me His Name. Let Me Help Him.
Just write a postal cardonly the cost of a
penny. All I ask la the name of a friend who
needs help. Tell me the book to send.
Then I will do this:I will arrange with a
druggist near him so that he may take six
bottles Dr. Shoop's Restorative. He may take
it a month at my risk. If It succeeds, the cost
la $5.50. If it falls, I will pay the druggist
myself. And the sick one's mere word shall de
Don't think that too fair to he possible, for
I do iuST as I say. I do it to convince those
who don't know me, and so that everyone who
needs help will accept it.
I have learned that the cured ones are fair.
I have furnished my Restorative to hundreds
of thousands on just those terms, and 39 out
of each 40 have paid gladly, because they
were cured. I have willingly paid for the rest.
And 1 spent a lifetime in perfecting the rem
edy before I ever offered it to anyone. At
thousands of bedsides, in hospitals and homes,
I have watched it cure the most difficult cases
that physicians ever meet. I learned that It
does not fall, save where some causelike can
cermake a cure impossible.
My success comes from strengthening the In
side nerves. My Restorative brings back that
nerve power which alone operates every vital
organ of the body. Common treatments merely
doctor the organs, and the results at best are
but temporary. My remedy restores the nerve
power that makes these organs act. No other
treatment does that, and there is positively no
other way to make weak vital organs well.
My book will explain this. It tells about the
only remedy so sure that any man dare offer
it on such a plan as mine. Won't you tell
me a friend who needs It?

Offense for Which W as Exiled Was

Count Mannerheim, ,.Jth^. first of the
Finns to be banished by the Russians,

why he was sent into exile except that
he once ordered a Russian governor
out of his house. That was two years
ago at a private concert given by his
wife in aid of a fund for popular edu
"Into the midst of our guests strode
the governor," says Count Manner

him out. He was Kagorikoff, a Rus
sian, who had no constitutional right
to- his governorship, and this was his
public debut after taking his chair.
Possibly the incident was cherished
against me and nursed for two years
I do not know. I was the same
Kagorikoff concerned in this who
ordered the whipping of the people by
the Cossocks a year later. He was
sued for that last performance, but the

Mines have been laid by the Swed
