It economises fuel, is a splendid baker,

TnERE is no Excuse for anyone suffer

Gents You may perhaps remember that
I wrote you several weeks ago in regard to
the use of the Peruvian Syrup for my wife,
who was suffering from general debility,
the sequence of Typhoid Dysentery. 1 had
tried the most noted physicians in this
State, and also in Canada, without relief.
At your recommendation she commenced
the use of the syrup, the first four bottles
made but little impression, but while tak
ing the fifth 6he began to improve rapidly,
and now, after using six of the dollar bot
tles, slie has regained her strength, and is
able to do most of the work about the house;
and I feel that I cannot speak too highly iu
praise of the Peruvian Syrup. I have pre
scribed it to several cf my patients, and
nave procured tne sale ot several or It here.
You can make any use of this letter you see
fit. Yours very truly, II. D. Belden, M. D.

Of the pealing, grand crescendos,
