Dr. A. V. Griffith.
Dear Sir: ,
One month ago I weigh
ed 92 lbs. and today I weigh 103 lbs.
I was surprised to think I had gained
so much. I knew I was gaining, but
to gain 11 pounds in one month is a
little more than I am used to.
I am feeling fine in every respect.
I used to be so nervous and I could
not sleep at night, but now I can
sleep fine and I am gaining strength
very fast. I am recommending your
treatment to those who I know need
it, and I hope they will come to you,
as I know you can benefit them so
much, and I will help you all I can
as I want to show you that I appreci
ate what you have done for me.

BUGGY HAfiNESS SEASON!
THis is the season for Buggy Harness. I
have the largest and most complete line
ever shown in Laclede, and am asking
only the usual low prices for them. The full
ness ot the line and low price have made my
sales of heavy harness this spring exceed all
prior years, and there is no reason why the
same rule should not apply to the Buggy Har

grades, both in single and double.
