Pilgrim Joe's Patent Remedy
A Ftw Words About lilt Paia Alleviator Lettsrs to Provs Itl Valus.
tCepyrlihl. 1M, by It a MrClurs.J
ON aeveral occasions sluca 1
begun writing iuj Ufa for the
U'lifflt of those who ma
route after rue 1 bare referred,
Id the moot niodiwt and di-llrate man
ner, to my Pilgrim Tain Alleviator.
While walling for Dew stork to ar
rlTe, and being laid up with 1 boll 011
inj 'g at the aaine time, I pni'Mwo to
take advantage of the opportunity to
make Uie public further a''tisliid with
the merlu of my wonderful remedy.
fu Uie flrst plare, toy Allevlutor lius
nothing whatever to do with roots,
herlta and barka, It la rompum whol
ly of drug and chemical and ran be
uaed atther to commit aulclde or get
A the aole and original Inventor, I
urn not around telling people what they
bad better, do tn tilt matter. It In my
business to aell tb Alleviator to any
one having the catD.v
In the second placewhere the Alle
viator falls to cur It Is like falling off
a bridge Into tbe water. If you don't
drown, you" re bad the eiperlence any
way. I claim for my remedy that It Is good
for either sei or any color, and that It
ran bo given to the babe In the cradle
or fie old man In the chimney corner.
Many ao called remedies are afloat that
will not touch the cane of an Indian or
colored man. Mine Include every
body, even the members of tlie beef
You don't hare to keep In a cool nor
a hot place-down cellar nor upstairs.
Any old place will do. It Is like In
(went on money In a taring bank
worklng away for you nights, Sundays
No file settle on the corks of my
bottles. Every cork' Is treated until
It ran be warranted nonflyable. Thl
fart alone Is as good as a mark down
Tbe t Kittle are mnde extra strong,
and when the Alleviator I all gone
they ran tie used for elderberry wine or
to knock down harvest apples with. A
murderer In Jollet prison writes m
that they are far belter than annd
bag aa a weapon to kill a country con
My Alleviator ran be taken on full
stomach, an empty stomach or on no
atomarh at all, and that Is one of my
strong potut. Tou don't have to carry
Uie bottle around In your coat tall
pocket and wait for something to hap
pen. Junt pull the cork with your
tevtb and begin to feel that life Is
worth the living.
J. D. of Milwaukee writes me: "1
found a bottle of your Alleviator under
"a ootmciii or runt pootom aim 1
saw log aud took tba contents at two
doses. I bava been a different man
sluca. I was aa near the grave as
critter could be, but now I weigh 200
pounds and can put any man In tba
county on bla back.
Mrs. J. of Chicago writes: "I had
been a widow for seven years, and ev
ery man I got after got away, when a
friend recommended your Alleviator,
I bad no faith In It but aent on my
niouey, and I bad taken only three
loe of tba remedy when a Scandl
navlan came along and proposed mar
rlage, and I had htm fastened for Ufa
within twenty-four hours, lis baa a
mouth large enough for a horse. If
70a bava any remedy for that please
end It along."
Peter Jonea of Ellendale, N. D,
writes: "For twenty-three years I waa
called tb laalest man In Dickey coun
ty. I even got too buy to tall a good
lie when Uie crowd of us gathered at
the grocery la tba evening. I waa
asked to take two doses of your Alle
viator and waa too laay to refuse
Within tan minutes I waa home chop
ping wood for the Brat ttma In my Ufa
and was np at 6 o'clock next morning
making garden. I am so full of energy
and ambition that I can't keep still
Tonr remedy has changed my whole
future, and If yon are aver In this part
f tba country I want the privilege of
shaking handa with you. My wife la
down on bar kneea thanking heaven as
I write thla."
There are certain drugglata who will
tall yon that something else la Just aa
good aa my Alleviator. Call them liar
at onca. Nothing ever Invented can
ake tba place of It
I bava been asked If the feeling of
xultaUon that come after the first
dose has been down about five minutes
U due to nlcnhol. It Is not Tba effects

druggist for a bottle of tbe Alleviator.
If the druggist says he doesn't keep It
and wouldn't be found dead with It
on his shelves, send direct to me. I
will not only forward tbe Alleviator by
axpresa, but hire some angular cuss
In your Immediate neighborhood to
punch that druggist's head.

Henry Khlno of Racine writes me:
"My gratitude Is such that you may
make free vm of my name. Two

aatd I hud tnpeworm. Thereupon my
wife ran away, some one stole my dog

supposed by all that I could not aur

friend of mine scut to you for a bottle
of your Alleviator. After Uklng four
doses 1 chased Uie doctors out of town.
After taking one bottle I found my
dog. and before tbe third bottle was
gone I bsd overhauled my wife, boxed
her eara aud made arrangement for a
new and better bouse. No other rem

manuer, and I want tba world to get

Au undoubted menace to health Is th
coutlnual munching of youngsters and
grownup. The child spends bis penny
or nickel at the fruit stand or tbe con
fectioner or baker, where, mora of
ten than not, the wares are adulterat
ed, open to dust from the street or
stuffy apartments. The mother takea
the edge from her dinner appetite by
mldafternoon confections and Ices and
teas. At the table wholesome substan
tial are passed by for toothsome des
serts because stomachs bare been al
ready overtaxed and taste hi tba only
Incentive to eating. Tba result Is dy

writer, aays that two French captains,
though old friends, fell out and fought
One of them was disabled. "The oth
er, being untouched, observed: There,
thafs enough for old friends like us.
Tou'd better go and attend to your
wounds.' To this Uie ranijnlntied one
replied: 'Well, you tulght as well do a
bit mora for me. Juxt pretend to ba
wounded and wear your arm In a allng
for a day or two, so that I needn't be
considered disgraced nor any question
of that come up when they want to
reconcile us-that Is, if I survive.' And
tba victorious friend smeared some of
tbe other's blood on hi arm and went
about aaylng that be ws wounded, but
It was a mere nothing, and he only
wished his friend were Uie same. The
Utter recovered wltb some difficulty,
