A statement issued from the

•that Mr. Ludlow relinquished

The first thing to do is to look to the
wiUaiv of your bowels. There the trou
ble usually lies. All physicians know
that a largo percentage of women are

ChaJi women constantly complain of.
•But there is no use taking "female rem
edies" and things of that kind until you
tune started your bowels to moving.
You will find that when the bowels move
regularly once or twice a day all your
P'-'ty Ills will disappear. Take a good,

$1100 SAFE HIS LETTER.
Waldron, Ark., Oct. 9, 1909.
Mr. Wm. Brooks, Prop.,
Brooks Med. Co., Russellville, Ark.
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
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
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- :
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.
