i Suffering Described As Tortnre Reliered by Black-Draught, r Rossville, Ga. Mrs. Kate Lee Able, ol Ibis place, writes: "My husband is an engineer, and once while lifting, he in jured himself with a piece of heavy ma . chinery, across the abdomen. He was 10 sore he could not bear to press on himself at all, on chest or abdomen. He weighed 165 lbs., and fell off until he weighed 110 lbs., in two weeks. He became constipated and it looked Hke he would die. We had three different doctors, yet with all their medicine, his -bowels failed to act He would turn up a ten-cent bottle of castor oil, and drink it two or three days in succession. Jie did this yet without result We became desperate, ho suffered so. He was swol len terribly. He told me his suffering could only be described as torture. I sent and bought Thedford's Black Draught I made him take a big dose, and when it began to act he fainted, he was in such misery, but he got relief and began to mend at once. He got well, and we both feel he owes his life to Thedford's Black-Draught." Thedford's Black-Draught will help you to keep fit, ready for the day's work. Try it! NC-131 Class Recital.
