HORT TALKS BY
L. T. COOPER.
It's curiona what some peonle beTiera a
nedieine will do. They teem to think
because I advertise
my preparations I
claim they will cure
anything and every
The other day I
got a letter from a
woman who said
her husband had
been in bed eighteen
years with paraly
sis. She had bought
seven bottles ol the
and her husharu.'
was m ill in bed.
She stated that I was a scjmndrcl, a robber
nd various other pleasant things.
Now the only tlin I claim for Cooper's
New Discover it that it will put the
stomach in working order. I know tha'
if this is do:: j, rheumatism, constipation,
kidney ant) liver troubles, nervousness,
and the general tired out, despondent feel
ing will disappear in ninety-nine cases out
of a hundred. I know this medicine to be
a fine tonio which used twice a year will
throw off impurities and add flesh, strength
and tone to the entire system. Hut it
w ill not do the impossible. No medicine
on earth will do more than help nature.
Certain diseases are beyond all medicine,
although God in his wisdom may some
day give us Irail human a knowledge
of how to cure them. At present I know
Cooper's New Discovery to be as thor
oughly efficient a medicine at was ever on
the market, and people who will take it
for the common ills to which flesh it heir
will be more than tatis6ed.
Here it a letter from one who hat tried'
"For long time I have Buffered iron
severe headaches, weakness, and paint in
my back and tides."
"Nothing I tried gave me relief, and
friend advised m: 10 try your medicine.
I improved from tiie first week. My back
ache and headache left me aad I felt
myself growing stronger. My appetite
inoreaaed and 1 (alt greatly improved in
every way. I am indeed thankful for the
benefit 1 have reoeired." Miaa Jennie
