For nearly thirty years he has been traveling around the world, and is still traveling bringing health and comfort wherever he goes. To the consumptive he brings the strength and flesh he so much needs. To all weak and sickly children he gives rich and strengthening food. To thin and pale persons he gives new firm flesh and rich red blood. Children who first saw the old man with the fish are now grown lip and have children of their own.

Cancer Cured. Mr. W. W.Prickett,Smithfleld, Ills., writes, Sept. 10th, 1901. had been suffering sever il years with a cancer on my face, which gave me great annoyance and un bearable itching. I was using Ballard's Snow Liniment for a sore leg, and through an accident I rubbed some of the liniment on the cancer, and it gave me almost instant relief. I decided to con tinue to use the liniment on the cancer. In a short time the can cer came out, my face healed up and there is not the slightest scar left. 1 have implicit faith in the merits of this preparation, and it cannot he too highly recommend ed.

Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine brings rest and sweet sleep to the tired brain worn out with the cares and anxieties of the sick room. Read the following: "I have always been healthy with the ex ception of a touch of rheumatism since my a„e came on, up to the time of my husband's last illness some years ago. I assisted in nursing my husband for nearly three months when ne departed this life and the mental strain I think caused my trouble. Aside from extreme nervousness my trouble com menced with sore throat and neuralgia. My physician gave me purgative doses which weakened me very much and my stomach for a time seemed inactive. Mental strain and the dormant condition of my stomach soon fold upon my general health. I had little appetite and was soon forcod to stay in bed a greater part of the time. Within a week after the time I began taking Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine and Tonic I was up about the house. I continued their use until completely cured. My faith in Dr. Miles' Remedies has been strengthened by experience of other people, our daughter hav ing used Restorative Nervine with splendid results in a case of para ysis and a friend to whom I sent a box of the Anti-Pain Pills re ports that she has been completely cured of neuralgia by their use. I know of a number of others whom yourmedicine has helped i large degree. I wish you continued success." —Mrs. F rances Coffman, Dayton, Va.
