Dr. Miles' Nervine Gave
"I was laid up during the winter of 04-?5
with sciatic rheumatism and serf ous prostra
tion brought on by a severe attack ol La.
Grippe. The rheumatic paios were so, se
vere at times that It was impossible for me to
turn in bed. I was unable to sleep. I had
two of our best physicians in attendance,
took mil the advertised remedies for troubles
of this kind but got no help whatever until I
took Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine. Sit,
bottles restored mo to health; I am better
than for years; in fact am entirely relieved.
I can say with a clear conscience that it was
Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine that restored
roe to health. When the pains of sciatica
and rheumatism were most severe I secured
almost immediate relief, by the use of Dr.
Miles' Anti-Pain Pills. Itiave recommended
Dr. Miles' Remedies to many people." Fred

shake my whole bed. I also had a weak, alt

odor treated me lor liver and stomach
trouble but I failed to receive any benefit
until a friend recommended Dr. Miles' Heart
