with any of the above named diseases.shoukl
use it without delay. It will drive the dis
eases from the system, and when once out on
tie Skin, a few applications to

Messrs. J. N. Harris <t Co.—Gentlemen :
Your agent, Mr. A. F. Barms, 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’, h-iving 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 remained, and would break out occa
sionally, with the most virulent type, until he
rrrived at the age of tourteen years, when my
eye providentially rested upon the advertise
ment of Dr. Weaver’s Canker and Salt Rheum
Syrup and Cerete. lat ouee 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.
