Read what firs. .la*. IZ. Blair of Boston has to say about Bloodine.
" My daughter had suffered from birth (for twenty years)
from Eczema, and had tried many so-called cures and dozens
of physician's prescriptions with little c r no relief, until X was
advised to have hdr try " Bloodine," and I am thankful today
to he able to inforn^ you that she has been entirely cured after
using six bottles of j" 1'loodine." " Bloodine" is positively ibe
only remedy known to science that has the full power to drive
this much dreaded disease out of the system; no matter how
long yen have been afflicted with it. What Mrs. Blair saye is
enough to convince the most skeptical that " Bloodine " will
cure any blood Disease. Bloodine costs but 60c per bottle,
six bottles for $2X0. Mail orders filled promptly.
