Messrs. J. N. Harris <t Co.—Gentlemen :
Your agent, Mr. A. F. Barnes, whilst passing
through our place, casually heard of a most ef
fectual cure of an obstinate case of salt rheum
in a member of my family, having politely
requested the facts of the case, I most cheer
fully comply with his request.
The subject of this remarkable cure is my
son, and was attacked with salt rheum when
about a year and a half old. I applied from
time to time for aid to the most efficient phy
sicians in the eastern states, one of whom had
traveled in Europe ; but whilst he would at
times receive some temporarp relief, still the
disease remaitred, and would break out occa
sionally, with the most virulent type, until he
rrrived at the age of fourteen years, when my
eve provident ally rested upon the advertise
ment of Dr. Weaver’s Canker and Salt Rheum
Syrup and Cerete. lat ouce procured one
bottle, which on trial so encouraged me, that
I procured two more, together with the Cer
ate, and the result is that my son now is and
has been effectually cured of that wretched
disease for the last three and a half years.
Respectfully yours. ALFRED PARKER.

taken internally, should be adelteratcd with
milk or water, or made into a syrup with mo

eaten will be more effect ive than anything else.
See Printed Directions which accompany each
Bottle.
The Pain Killer is by universal consent al
lowed to have won for itself a reputation un
surpassed in the history of rnedi :al prepara
tions. Ils instantaneous effect in the entire
eradication and extinction of Pain, in all its
various forms incipentalto the human family,
and the unsolicited written and verbal testi
mony of the masses in its favor, have been and
are its own best advertisement.
REV. W. B. JACOBS:
Newark, N. J., June 6,1860.
Messrs. Perry Davis <fc Son— Gantlcmen :
Allow me, unsolicited, to send you a word of
commendation for your Pain Killer. I have
used it in my family these several years, and
fonnd it all it claims to be. For Rheumatism,
Coughs Colds. Bures, Cholera tendencies and
difficulties, as well as diseases generally that
prevail in families, I regard the Pain Killer as
beyond all price, and as efficacious beyond
any medicine within my knowledge. We
keep it as our chief family medicine, and find
its use in ordinary cases worth more than any
doctor. The testimony of others among my
acquaintances and friends is equaUy favora
able. Many clergymen have spoken of it in
the highest terms as a family medicine. Mis
sionaries in repeated instances have said to me
in person and in their letters, that the Pain
Killer was by far the best medicine used in
heathen lands, and they use it for themselves
and families, and administer it to others
around them. Thus mnch lam inclined to
say as an act of justice to yourselves; and as a
benefit to others. You are at liberty to use
this testimonial, if of any ser*ice.
Rev. W. B. JACOBS,
Late Editor Christian Chronicle.
BEWARE OF ALL IMITATIONS.
The Pain Killer is sold by all respectable
Druggists throughout the U. States and in
foreign countries.
