I have read in the newspapers many accounts of cures- effected by" your Scandavlan Remedies, but I consider my. own case at least as interesting and u"marrel ous as any of them. So far as you are too- cerned, one testimonial more or less is of littW consequence. Your fame is' established, and my statement cannot add to your celwbrit?. But for the benefit of my fellow creatures, J. desire to make known the facts., WbenlcallejJ upon you,' at the instance of a dear friendoij. the 21st of March, last, I had been nine eara -sufferer from catarrh. The irritation' of tho f nerves and membrane. of the head. was m. i- tense that sometimes it almost drove mecrasy, I could not sleep, and was never fre from unx pleasant sensations. At various . times fivo different physicians had attendei me, eah one treated me in his own way, but none of them ' did me any good. I despaired of ever seeing 3 another well day, and when 1 called at your consultation rooms, Lad very little hope ofren. lief. By your advise, I entered immediately upon a regular course - of your. Scandinavian tt Blood Purifier and Blood Pills. "I was euoona aged by the cheerful, hopeful ray , in which 1 you fjioke, and. I resolved Btcictly-to .oIIomt your direction. In less than a -week, all tb ? worst symptoms of my complaint began : .j take a milder form, and so continued to lm.j prove from week to week, until, -at the end of three mouths, my. head was entirely, relieved, 4 and every trace of the catarrh bad left mo. cini, npwever, 1 continued to utethe riffl- dies, for nearly-six weeks longer, because 1 found they were building up. my strength and fortifying my constitution. Six months have passed since the cure waa finished, and I havo had uo sign of a relapse.
