The reason why Stuart's Calcium
Wafers beautify the skin is their nat

The wonderful calcium sulfide is one
of the natural constituents of the
human body. You must have It to be
healthy. It enriches the blood, invig
orates skin health, dries up the pimples
and boils, eczema and blotches, enables
new skin of fine texture to form and

I There is a strange perversity about human nature (and we are all
much alike in this respect) that the things that COME EASY are
not valued nearly so much as those which COME HARD or ARE
UNATTAINABLE. I have been asked times without number why
I continually advertise when my practice is now unquestionably the
largest in the state, and my offices always busy.
I have had it insinuated that I was selfish even avaricious
when I still made efforts to secure more patients.
For the benefit of my legion of friends and patients who ask
this question in a spirit of friendship and equally for my critics
who sneeringly inquire why I find it necessary to continue my
advertising I wish to say: ,
I have my share of adversity I am intensely human I, like
others, want to acquire that which requires effort, pluck, ingenuity
honesty, skill and "stick-to-it-iveness"; namely, the good will of
PEOPLE WHO WONT BELIEVE IN ME AND PEOPLE WHO
DON'T BELIEVE IN ME.
You recall the joy which reigned when the Prodigal Son re
turned you remember the welcome extended the new convert? It
was not the importance of the prodigal or the convert but the fact
that THERE WAS A PRINCIPLE INVOLVED that made the
victory sweet, and that principle is involved in my advertising.
