US1XG THE3I FOR EVERYTHING.
Peter Magerus, residing at 251
Johnson Avenue, Brooklyn, E. D.,
N. Y., says:
During the last eighteen years I
have been using overnfty Axlcock.'s
Plasters a year in my family.. I
have found them a most perfect ex
ternal remedy. They have repeat
edly cured me of rheumatism, to
which I am subject every winter.
They have cured me of pains in the
sides and back three times. My wife,
children and mother-in-law tell me
Allcock's Plasters are the best
remed yever made, so agreeable, so
certain. I know they have cured
my wife of pains in the back and of a
severe cough. My mother-in-law has
been cured of a most severe cold,
which threatened to turn into pneu
monia, by Allcock's Plasters.
When the Puritans were starv
ing in Plymouth colony, 246 years
ago, it was a ship from Ireland
that brought them food, and prob
ably preserved the seed of free
government on this continent.
