CANCERS CURED .
Bt JAMES REDDEN.
Read the following certificate;
To all those persons afflicted witl
cancers or cancerous tumors, I would
advise them to go immediately to Jamf
Redden Esq., at Redden's Cross Roads,
in Sussex county, four miles this sic.«
of Georgetown, on the State Road, who
can positively and radically cure them
without fail, if rot too far gone. I had a
cancer on my face for six years' stand
ing, which he killed in a a few minutes
I had previously taken the advice o
several eminent physicians, tome ad
vised tue to have it cut out, others to
et it alone, it would never be the cause
of my death. It was very troublesome
and gave me great uneasiness of mind
as well as .soma pain. I accidentally,
while in Wilmington, heard that Mr.
Redden could cure them. 1 came home
aad immediately fixed up and went
down; he operated on it. I came home
and in three weeks it came out "root
and branch," and in six weeks it was
entirely well, and has remained so for
six months. I publish this certificate
for no earthly interest only for the sake
of suffering humanity.

These symptoms, if allowed to go on

these excesea are not frequently follow

by consumption, bear ample witness to
the truth of these assertions. In Luna
