Dear Sir:-A sample of Krause's Head
ache Capsules was left In my husband's
office a few days since, and as I am
subject to headaches neuralglo, nerv
ous, and lu fact every other kindhe
thoughtfully brought the sample box
home. The very next day I had a chance
to try them and one capsule relieved
me In less than half an hour. Next
ay I was attacked again, took another
capsule with the same delightful result,
lu less than half an hour my head felt
as well as ever, with no bad feeling as
the after result. I have had these
terrible headaches for twenty years,
and have tried every remedy I ever
heard of, but nothing I have ever taken
has cured or relieved tue as quickly as
Krauso's Headache Capsules. Mrs. N.
