Sloan—Dear Sir: In my opinion, tho greatest cures effecied are those that have longest resisted the skill of the Medical Facul ty. Admitting that to be a fact, I have a case in point, to wit: Mr. James Hunford, of Sheboy gan Falls, was crippled two years with five irge deep ulccrs, just above the ankle. The leg was so much swollen he could not get on a boot. Nearly all the mo.-it popular Physicians in various piaccs have treated his case without any beneficial cffect. Last August, Mr. Handford solicited my ad vico. 1 euccov'dcd in reducing the swelling, arid healed two of the sores, 'lht' other three I labored at till the first of Pcbruary, without much, if any, benefit, when I gave him a box of Sloitn's Ointment, and in three weeks he was well. Respectfully vours, C. B. OSTRANDER, M. D. The Child was Healed. York Precinct, Du Page Co., Ill, Dec 27, 1S48 Mr. TF. R. Sloan—sir: Last summer one of my children was badly bitten by a rattlesnake. We applied your Oir.tmcnt freely, and "the ohild was healed." Also, I had a horde wounded in the stifle joint, in which he took cold, and became so swollen and distressed, that /he horse was sup posed worthless, but by a free use of your Oint ment, was soon curcd. We have used tho Ointment in a great ma ny other.cases, with equal success, WALTER WHIT BECK.
