No comrade wi'll need further proof than their friend's own words, as heregiven. Squire John Castor, of Newpoint, Ind., i the narrator, and an honest, respected cit- !zen he is, too. He said: "I have been troub. ted with rheumatism in all my joints, ever since I went to the war. It was brought on by my exposure there. It came on me grad- uallv, and kept getting worse until I was unable to do any work. I tried several physicians, but they did me no good. They said my trouble was rheumatism resulting in disease of the heart, and that there was no cure for it. Nevertheless I had lived and fought the disease for thirty years, and did not intend to die, simply because they said I must, so I hunted up some remedies for myself, and finally happened on Dr. Wil- liams' Pink Pills for Pale People• I asked some of my neighbors about the medicine, for it had been used by several persons in the conununity, and they recommended it very highly. I procured a box. The pills helped me right away, and I continned tak- i ing them. I commenced taking them last fall, aud finished taking the sixth box a few - months ago. I am not bothered with the i rheumatism now--the medicine has cured me. I can most certainly reconmmnd Dr.Vil- i lianas' Pink Pills for Pale People." i These pills are not only good for rheuma- E tism, but are invaluable for any disease that • arises from impoverished, or bad blood• i They do not net on the bowels, i No Room to Turn.
