My Dear Sir: For several weeks I have been intending to write you in re gard to your Baby Balm. If you remember, when yon wero here this summer I told you that our ■ baby was sick. He was then having j his third attack of bowel trouble this i summer. They were very severe. The first two were exceedingly alarm ing and I suggested to my wife tVat we try your remedy, but she was pre judiced against patent medicine, so was I, but I knowing you, gave me confidence to some extent, (pardon the modified clause.) In ihe last case however my wife agreed to try your Baby Balm. I went to my doctor and told him that I wanted to try it. He said that he did not know what it contained but to i give it a trial. We did, and it worked like a charm. Now my wife will not | oe without it and the baby has not had | a bad case with his bowels since we | began using it. You know how parents are about the baby. We watch him and if any trouble is indicated Brooks Baby Bowel Balm is put into service prompt ly and it has not failed to keep him straight so far. I have been at the drug store here on different occasions when parties come in for baby medicine and 1 just can’t (and don’t try) to keep from ‘‘buttin in” and telling them to get your Baby Balm. .Just night before last a man came into the drug store here to get bady medicine. My wife | says “tell him to get Baby Balm,” | but he had already learned its worth ! and that was what he was after. You yourself know that 1 have al-: ways found objection to the publishing of patent medicine advertising in my paper and I never thought I would be a person to write a recommendation for a patent medicine, but I could hardly resist in this casa, since feeling the great benefits received from your Baby Balm. Very respectfully yours, W. E. Baker. The above is one one of the thou sands of unsolicited lerters received in support of Baby Balm and this baby is one of the Ik),OOP Arkansas Babies test ing Baby Balm last year, among which was not a single failure or complaint. Mr. Baker is Editor and Proprietor of the Advance Reporter of Waldron, | Ark., one of the largest and best I weekly newspapers in the state. His I letter is given space because of his J known prejudice against patent medi- : cines. The manufactures offer $1000 for a | formula or prescription producing a greater percent of cures than Baby Balm. They also offer $100 for a case of bowel infection in children that will not yield to Baby Balm if given under specific directions from beginning.
