BURNT TO CINDERS.
IV. O. Sloan—Dear Sir: Juslico demands
that I should return to you my unfeigned
thanks for your unparalleled Ointment. Three
weeks age? my daughter's clothes caught fire,
and before the Haines could be extinguished,
they were all burnt to cinders, the child was
so badly burned that death seemed inevitable
in less than twenty-four hours. Your Oint
ment was recommcndcd,
and used with success
it gave perfect relief! It is needless to add
that the child is now well apd about her busi
ness'. The medicine is
-oil and more than, it is
recommcndcd to be. Every family and"por
son should have it in their possession.
I feel indebted to you for my child's life
and anything that I can do for you or your me
dicine, lam rtady and willing to-perform.
Your humble serv't JOHN II CltANU
Flint Creek, Lake co., III.. Feb 28,*

ON HIS HANDS AND KNEES
Mx\ W Sloan—DearSir: I hereby certify
that my son Albert, eleven years of age, was
afflicted in his feet from the time l.c first be
gan to walk, the bottoms of which were cov
ered with a hard dry skin, full of cracks, caus
ing pain and much affliction, many times ho
was obliged to go on his Jiands and knees, and
no time has lie been free from the sore afflic
tion until now. Baffling tho skill of several
physicians, but to our surprise his feet arc now
perfectly smooth soft and free Jroni cracks,
all from one application of your Ointment. 1
would say the boy put it on himself as an expe
riment of his own, from hearing it recommend
ed. Nothing more was thought of it for three
weeks, at weich time his feet weie near about
in a heal thy stale, and arc now the same as
thougli they never had been otherwise.
Yours, &c. ISA A PA EN

NIVE LARGE DEEP ULCERS.
Sheboygan, WYs., March 2, 1849.
Dr. W. B. 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,
