I if the year 1860 1 was captured by the Co- [ 
Blanche Indians while journeying with my 
family to California. My parents and an j 
only brother were murdered before my eyes, i 
while my young wife was saved to meet a 
fate worse than death. 

They intended to toiture me before the 
yes of my wife, before putting me to an 
and, but circumstances occurred whereby 
they found I could be made useful to them, 
and after much wrangling they concluded 
to spare my life also. They branded each of 
m upon the chin with the brand of a cap- 
tive, which mark can never be effaced while 
time with us lasts. My wife was soon soJd 
to a neighboring tribe, for a few trinkets, , 
while I was put to hard labor of all descrip- I 
tions. After seven years of hardship, fcoilj 
and privation, and suffering indignities al- \ 
most too degrading to mention, I at last suc- 
ceeded in making my escape. 

I traveled by night and rested in hiding I 
places by day, until at length I fell in with 
ajjparty of friendly Indians, who were guid- 
ing some miners to a desired route of travel. 
I joined their parly, and together we jour- 
neyed to the mines of San Ifdefonso. In the 
wrarse of a few months I learned from these 
same friendly Indians that a white female, 
branded as a captive,'had been seen among 
the Apaches. This I believed to be my wife; 
and after months of almost discouraging ef- 
forts, I succeeded in 'effecting her rescue, 
risking my life and her own in the effort. 
t I have lately published the sad history of 
myself and wife and entitled it "Seven and 
Nine Years among the Comanches and 

The object of THIS little pamphlet is to I 


give the public the benefit of valuable in- 
formation which I obtained while 

a captive 

ig the Indians, and which knowledge I 
d of great value vrhile among the min- 

i'S;ui 5 Mo:!'"- is .. 

Wakoinetkla was the Medicine Man of the 
tribe with whom I was a captive. He com- 
pelled me to gather the gums, barks, herbs 
and roots necessary in the treatment of the 
diseases to which the tribe were subject. 
He taught me to prepare these remedies in- 
to a bitter compound which he gave to the 
people of the tribe when sick. I gathered 
these medicines at odd times for six years; 
and, although I THEN never expected to 
have the opportunity of making them useful 
to civilized people, still I felt .a deep interest 
in watching their effect upon his patientvS, 
and often wondered how this wiidman of 
the plains could have possessed himself of 
such wonderful knowledge in the cure of 
various diseases. 

While working in the mines, I frequently 
had occasion to make use of the Indian 
Medicine. We were exposed to sudden 
changes, and in the rainy season, those of us 
who were as yet unaccustomed to the humid 
atmosphere often falling sick, I found it 
useful to myself, and I did not hesitate to 
urge upon others the necessity of using it. 
Its beneficial effects soon made an agreeable 
change in the health of our party, nndin a 
short time we became the most rugged par- 
ty of miners who had ever worked in that 
field. They soon styled me Doctor, but it 
gave me no displeasure, for although I took 
no credit to myself for the success of Wako- 
metkla's compound, still I felt I was the 
means of its introduction among these sons 
of toil, and I felt a wholesome satisfaction 
in witnessing its beneficial influence. 

After rescuing my wife, we soon returned 
to the east, and although I have been en- 
gaged in other pursuits, still I never fully 
relinquished my interest in the remedies 
which 1 was taught to REVEKKSOK while 
among the Indians. I have been too poor to 
introduce the compound, and I did notwiflb 
to ask help from others. 

In the fall of 3871 1 Coll iu with ; mold itfl i conii>odkiim; it can be weed by the most 

friend and room-mate, who was a medical 
student in the city <>f New Haven, while I 
was engaged in that oily in another capao- 
ity; when "informed that he was practicing 
medicine, 1 told him of 
the cures I had seen made 
among the Indians and 
the miners with Wako- 
metkla's medicine; and 
expressed a wish that it 
could be made universal- 
ly known. He at once 
proposed to assist me in 
introducing it, as he was 
satisfied that no better 
remedy could be made 
than that formed from 
the roots, trunis, herbs 
and barks which entered 
io to its composition. 

My friend has furnished 
the necessary funds for 
the introduction of the 
medicine, and as he is an 
educated, able, physician, 
I feel confident its intro- 
duction will be doubly 
successful, aided by his 

As the far west is not 
aa dangerous a locality as 
it was some -twelve years 
since, and as it will be 
necessary that 1 visit my 
old haunts once or twice each year, 1 have 
thought it proper to leave the entire man- 
agement of the business with him. 

The publication of the book above referred 
to, also occupies much of my leisure time, 
therefore I feel confident greater success 
will attend our efforts, if left to his manage- 
ment and care. I, of course, shall devote 
the bulk of my time in obtaining the ma- 
terials necessary in the composition of the 
remedy, and in assisting in its manufacture. 

The medicine is the same now as when 
Wakoinetkla taught and compelled me to

tention to the directions. 
This Syrup possesses varied properties. 

It acts upon the Liver. 

It acts upon tfce Sid- 

It regulates the Bow- 

It purifies the Blood. 

It quiets the Nervous 

It promotes Digestion* 

It Nourishes, Strength- 
ens and Invigorates. 

It carries off the old 
blood, and makes New. 

It opens the pores of 
the skin, and induces 
healthy perspiration. 

The Indian Syrup does 
all this; for ALL diseases 
arise from a bad state of 
r he blood. This virus or 
impurity in the blood, is 
effe c t u a 1 ly neu tralized 
and destroyed by the use 
of the Syrup. If the 
Liver, Stomach, Kidneys, 
Bowels, Nerves, Muscles 
Brain are kept in motion and fed by 
bad blood they must soon wear out. 

The Syrup makes good blood which 
will nourish and preserve every organ and 
part of the body, and keep it in repair un- 
til a ripe old age. 

Have You Liver Disease t 

If the skin be sallow and muddy, if there 
be ringing in the ears, constipation of the 
bowels, dull pains iu the side, sick head-

tern which has been known for many years, i need something to start it into action. The 
I say what I KNOW to be true; for I have i liver is more liable to get out of order than 
seen hundreds of sick Indians, miners, and i any other organ of the body. Its duty is to 
others among my acquaintances, many of < filter the impurities from the blood, and 
whom were given up by their physicians to when it becomes weak, obstructed and dis- 
die, entirely restored to health and strength ' 

by the use of this remedy. Newspaper men, 
calomel doctors, and others wedded to their 
family physicians, will denounce the medi- 
cine and call it and me a humbug. To these 
and all others, I would say, use the medicine 
yourself, and on your sick friends, and if 
upon trial, you are not satisfied that it pos- 
sesses KKAL virtue, then call upon my agent, 
and -he or she will refund the money. 

Leaving the business management of fee 
introduction of this truly remarkable Reme- 
dy to the superior intelligence of my friend, 
Dr. CLARK JOHNSON, and leaving the public 
to judge for themselves of the merits of this 
srift of nature, I am, truly yours, 


We have thought 

eased, and fails to do its duty properly, then 
the whole body suiters in consequence. 

Nothing will more speedily and effectually 
remove billiousness and inactivity of the 
liver, than the INDIAN BLOOD SYKUP. It 
soon brings the rose to the cheek and the 
lily to the confplexion, elasticity to the step, 
and brilliancy to the eye; and the patient 
feels like a newly made being. 

Have You Dyspepsia ? 
Does your food lie like a dead weight in 
your stomach, after eating 1 Does your food 
sonr on your stomach ? Do your sides trem- 
ble, and does your liQart palpitate after eat- 
ing? Is there difficulty in breathing?

We have thought proper to name this any or all of those svmpto; 
healing compound INDIAN B L O C) D i conclude your stomach has !< ..-.; i 
BTKUr. There are no spirits employed in : carry the food out of the system. 

The gastric juice of tbe etomacb, which is 
n!6ced there to dissolve tbe food, has be- 
eome too Mjeak to doits work, consequently, 
the food lies in the stomach and ferments, 
giving rise to all the distressing symptoms 
above named. To cure dyspepsia in its 
many varied forms, we must first make the 
gastric juice_teufficiently strong to take hold 
on the food and dissolve it, as soon as it 
reaches the stomach. Phe SYRUP does this, 
and in ALL cases of dyspepsia, the SYRUP 
should he taken INSTANTLY AFTER eat- 
ing, before fermentation of tbe food has al- 
ready set in. The SYRUP taken at this time, 
BO increases the strength of the gastric juice, 
that no difficulty is experienced in dissolv- 
ing the food,and it SOON digests and passes 
out of the stomach. 

To every miserable dyspeptic I would say: 
buy a bottle of the SYRUP, and if you do not 
feel you have been benefited, then call upon 
the agent, and request him or her to refund 
it; {our agents are requested to do this in all 
caes where the parties claim they have not 
Den benefited.) 

Remember, dvspeptice should take the 
fermentation of the food has already set in, 
for it is EASIER TO PREVENT fermentation 
than to arrest it, after having begun. Put 
the SYRUP on the table, and as soon as you 
have finished your meals, take half a tea- 
spoonf al diluted in water; (do not take the 
SYRFP clear.) 

Blood Disease. 

No part or organ of our bodies can thrive 
on bad blood. \Ve take food in our bodies 
to neurish them, and after the nutritious 
parts of the food have served their purpose, 
ro making fat, muscle and blood, the refuse 
or unautritious part should be carried ofi 
through the bowels and through the kid- 
neys, and through the sweat of the skin. 
Sow, if tbe bowels are choked up, so that 
there be not an evacuation at least once 
each day, and, if the skin is not in a condi- 
tion to sweat, and the kidneys are not pass- 
ing off the watery parts of what has been 
eaten, then, indeed, is the person in a criti- 
cal condition; for, although the system may 
hold out for a while- under such disastrous 
circumstances, still it cannot endure in 
health, any considerable time, for every 
day that the waste part of the food is pent 
up in the system, the blood is becoming 
more and more poisoned. This poisoniner 
will soon show itself in pimples, swelling*, 
bloatings, rough skin, purple spots, blotches 
in the hair, moth patenes, and$4n any and 
every difficulty of the organs of the body, 
which are fed on this impure blood. 

If the heart be fed on this inrpure blood, 
it cannot thrive. If the lungs receive im- 
pure blood into them, they cannot thrive. 
If the liver be compelled to filter, month af- 
ter month, and year after year, poisonous 
substances, it will soon give ou1 ; and so we 
might say of each and every drgan of the 

Keep the fountain of blood pure, and 
there will be no difficulty with any organ or 
part of the body. (In eruptions, boils, sores, 
4&e., the SYRTJP used externally a* well as 
to tern ally will be very useful.)

fula, Kidney Disease, 

and every other variety of disease, cannoi 
exist on pure blood. Bad blood makes tbese 
diseases; cleanse the blood and tbe disease 
will disappear. 


arises from acid in the blood. The SYRUF 
will sweeten the blood and cleanse it, and 
thus carry off the disease. 


are caused by slime in the bowels; cleanse 
out tbe slime witfo the SYRUP, and tbe 
worms having lost their resting place, will 
soon follow; for they cannot thrive except 
among the slimy accumulations in the bow- 

Diseases of Females. 

The SYRUP regulates the female system in 
the most satisfactory manner. All the dis- 
eases to which females are subject, are 
speedily benefite by th use of the SYRUP. 
Sunken eyes, pale faces, hollow cheeks, dark 
circles under the eyes, are soon removed bj 
the use of the SYRUP. 

Ladies try one bottle; it will cost yoc 
nothing if not benefited. In cases of uloera- 
tion of the womb, and inflammation, an in- 
jection of the SYRUP somewhat diluted with 
water, will be found useful. It should, irt 
such cases be used with a female syringe, 
and its use continued internally as well a* 

Fever and Ague. 

When the blood has become poisoned with 
the impure atmosphere of malarious districts 
nothing will more speedily purify it and sef 
it right than tbe INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP. 
Give it a trial and satisfy yourself of its effi- 
cacy in such difficulties. 

Kidney Diseases, Dropsy, &c., 

and many other difficulties are cured by tbe 
use of the SYRUP. If the wa,tery portions of 
our food are not passed off, they muwt, wheu 
retained in the system, produce serious dif- 
ficulties. Language fails when attempting 
to describe the sufferings of persons whose 
kidneys are out of order; gravel, back ache, 
inflammation :the bladder, and of the 
delicate membranes of the urinary organs 
are the result, if the water is not regularly 
and properly carried off through the kid- 
neys. The TRUP is effectual in promoting 
the secretion of the watery and unnutritioue 
portions of the food, and in carrying it off 
by its proper outlets. 

'Whatever portion of our food is unservice- 
able should be passed off in the water, io 
the sweat, and from the bowels. It these 
useless matters are retained, disease is sure 
to follow, for then the blood becomes pois- 
oned with the imparities which should pas* 
off in their proper channels. 

The SYRUP is a powerful cleanser of the 
blood; it starts tho liver and kidneys into ac- 
tive operation, and acts on all the secretions 
of the body. It carries off old and foul ail- 
ments in the blood, which are slow audsnre 

death if permitted to remain in the system, j derful accounts and t^timoiiiais of what the 

- " % ' medicines advertised have done for A. B. or 
C, '1 do not propose to till up my pamphlet, 
with any such certificates, but rather prefer 
to urge every one to make a trial of ONE bot- 
tle when, if they feel that they have derived no ben- 
efit from its use the agent will refund the money 
and charge the loss to me. 

The amouiit of refunded money which I 
am called upon fro make good; is but a trine, 
for the medicine universally satisfies all who 
take it, and in nearly all cases, a person who 
has tried one bottle, instead of calling upon 
the agent for the money, are so well pleased 
with its effect, that they continue its use a 
lou gas necessary and recommend it to all 
their ailing friends. 

Any person who knows anything about BUS- 
INESS, must) see from this extraordinary 
manner of introducing the remedy, that our 
confidence in its bjealing virtues are un- 
bounded, and that our business could not 
long survive on this plan unless it was uni- 
versally successful. 

We are willing to take the risk for we 
know what the INDIAN BLOOD SYRUP has 

It will cost you nothing to try a bottle, if you 
are NOT benefited, for tbe agent is authoriz- 
ed to refund the price of the bottle if you are 
not sufficiently satisfied with its use to go on, 
or do not feel that you have received any 

My Manner of Introducing the Indian 
Blood Syrup 

may seem strange to many persons, and it 
may not be out >f place to give my reasons 
for introducing it through other means than 
the ordinary channels of trade. 

Druggists, as a general thing, have their 
shelves filled with remedies of various kinds. 
They have no particular interest in any sin- 
gle one, but will recommend and sell which- 
ever article they can make the most profit 

The pamphlets, which have cost money, 
they permit to get scattered about in their 
stores and thrown about in waste places, 
where they are not seen by the people who 
are afflicted. By this means the medicines 

sent to them fail to reach the public, and the 
introduction of the remedv is frustrated by I continue to do. 
the carelessness or indifference of the clerks 
of druggists. We do not object to supply 
druggists with the medicines, if they will 
be conscientious in the distribution of the 
pamphlets, and take an interest in the sale 
of the medicine; but we are sorry to say this 
case rarely occurs among druggists who 
have numberless articles for sale, in no sin- 
gle one of which they take any especial in- 

By introducing the remedies through par- 
ties who are out of business and who need 
employment, we serve both the individual 
and the public. The agent sees that the 
pamphlets are not thrown about and de- 
stroyed, for he takes an interest in letting 
the people know what he is about, and also 
endeavors to make it profitable to himself 
by getting up a demand for the medicines 
among those who need it. In all cases where 

have an agent in a place, we desire the people 
to buy the medicine from them, and thus save the 
risk of sending money to us by mail.

Ce virus,, ou cette impurete du sang esteoin-

il le detruit. Si le Fcie, 1'Estomac, la Rate, 
les Entiailles, les Nerfs, les Muscles, et le

ils ne pourront durer longtemps. 

Le Sirop forme un sang pur qua alimentera

Avez- vous la Maladie de Foie? 

Si la peau est livide, si les orcilles vous 
^intent, si vous etes constipe, si vous resen- 
tez des douleurs de reins, si vous avez la

peau devient brulante et seche, si votre yue 
se trouble, si vous avez la bouche mauvaise, 
froid aux pieds et aux mains, des insomnies, 
des vertiges, si vous n'avez pas d'appetit, si 
votre sang ne circule pas bien et que vos 
membres soient etc., etc., alors vous 
pouvez etre assure que votre Foie est atteint 
et il vous iaudra quelque remode pour le

Maladies du Sang. 

Aucune partie du corps ni aucune organe

eotrailles sont embarrassees, de ipaniere a ce 
qu'il n'yait pas une evacuation au inoins 
une fois par/jour, si la peau n'estpas en etat 
de permettre la transpiration, et si les 
Tisceres ne passent pas les parties aqueuses, 
c. a. d, les parties liquides, de ce que nous 
mangeons, alors vraiment notre corps se 
trouve dans un etat alarmant ; cai>quoique 
notre .systeme pourrait endurer cet e'tat p"en-

bientot voir sous la forme de boutons, en-

un sang impur. Si le C03iir s'alimente 
sang impur, il ne peut etre en bon e'tat. 

Si les poumons resolvent du sang man-

two years I can say I had not one hour free 
of pain. I purchased a fifty cent bottle of 
your Indian Blood Syrup of William Lewis, 
your agent for Greigsville, N. Y., some time 
ago. Since I have taken that small amount 
1 am in perfect ease, and have no pain in the 
region of the kidneys. I am so confident of 
its virtue, that 1 feel justified in recom- 
mending it to all that may be afflicted with 
the same complaint. Yours truly,

DEAR SIR: With the full permission of 
the parents, I give you three remarkable 
cures that were effected by your medicine, 
the Indian Blood Syrup, under my own ob- 
servation; and being your agent, I was au- 
thorized to give your medicine a warrant. 

Mr. Roberts, of Adam's Mills, Ohio, had 
three children that we re scrofulous from their 
birth, and were then from four to ten years 
old. He had spent a great deal of money, 
but to no effect; the eldest was very full of 
large sores. He used the blood Syrup as di- 
rected, and they, all three, were entirely 
smooth and well in three monthb. Th 
above are facts. W. C. R. WOODRUFF. 

DRESDEN, OHIO Sept. 19, 1876. 

A Reliable Family Medicine. 


Sept. 24, 1876. 
Dr. Clark Johnson: 

This is to certify that the Indian Blood 
Syrup is the best medicine ever used in my 
family. I have been using it for four years, 
and it has done more for my wife than any- 
thing she has ever used. Hoping the public 
will be benetitted by this great medicine, I 
state these facts. 


Found the Right Medicine at Last. 

ZION, YADKIN Co.. N. C., Sept 8, 1876. 
1 have fouiid the right medicine at last 
after along time trying and paying doctors- 
bills, My wife had been on the decline for 
a long time with a diseased Liver and other 
female complaints 1 had about given it up 
when I met W. Messick, Jr., one of your 
agents, and he told me if 1 would try the 
Syrup i t would cu re my wif e . I took him at 
his word, and bought a small bottle. I have 
never seen such alteration in my life from 
the one bottle. 1 will say this much about 
the Syrup; I think it is the best medicine 
ever introduced into this country, without 
any exception. R.. W. CRATOR.

A Remarkable Cure. 

VIVIAN, MINN., Oct. 20, 187D. 
SIR : I huV6 been sick all summer with 
female complaints and Liver Disease. I 
fcbok one fifty cent bottle of your Indian 
Blood Syrup, and am now almost entirely 
well. When 1 first commenced using it 1 
was only able to work one day out of six; 
some days I could kardly walk across the 
room. 1 could not sleep at nights, and some- 
limes, when 1 went to bed, did not think I 
would live till morning. I am now doing 
ray housework and washing. 


Scrofula White Swelling. 

SIR : 1 have had the white swelling and 
scrofula for about 48 years, and have spent | 
hundreds of dollars with doctors, but all to I 
no purpose. I tried your Indian Blood Syrup, j 
one full and one half-sized bottle, and am i 
now about well. Believing that your medi- ' 
cine is the best stomach cleanser, bowel , 
regulatot and blood purifier that was ever 
introduced, I would not be without it.

DEAR SIR : I wish to say to you and the 
public that your Indian Blood Syrup has 
done effective work in my case. 1 was so

battle, and am now able to walk three 
naflvs to your agentfs to get a full-sized bot- 
tle. Respectfully yours,

A Walking Skeleton. 


Oct. 12, 1876. 

This is to certif y that I had the Dyspepsia 
ol about'four years standing, and had tried 
all remedies I could hear of without finding 
relief. I threw up my victuals and began 
to look like a walking skeleton. I happened 
to meet a friend who advised me to try youi 
medicine. I took a fifty cent bottle, and 
found it relieved me before I had taken hall 
the bottle, more than all the rest of tht 
medicine I had taken in three years. 1 con- 
tiiiuedite use, and have had no symptoms oi 
Dyspepsia since. I never expect to be with- 
out the Syrup in my family as long as I can 
raise 50 cents. Yours. 



EUBRIDOE, N. Y., Sept 20, 1876. 
Having been afflicted a ggod deal with 
Rheumatism for the la,st three or four years, 
I was induced to try the Indian Blood eyrup, 
and l.y taking one bottle I was entirely free 
from the pain in ba<$k and hips, that was 
sure to attack me at every cool change in 
the weather. I am feeline free from rheu- 
matic pains, and shall continue to take the 
Syrup. Yours truly, 


Not a Single Bottle Failed.

Dr. C lark Johnson : 

DEAR SIR : I have pleasure in reporting 
that every bottle of your Indian Blood 
Syrup that I have sold in about two years, 
not one has failed to heal. It would be well 
for humanity if the manufacture of that 
kind of medicine should never cease. The 
validity of such medicine should be known 
throughout the world.

Sept. 10. 1876, 

DEAR 8m: I have been afflicted over 
twenty -five years with Asthma every sum-

food distressed me greatly: my wife, who 
br.d taken your Indian Blood Syrup, gave 
me one large-sized bottle. It is now little 
over a year since 1 took , it, and, to my joy 
and satisfaction, 1 Have not been afflicted 
with my disease for the past summer, and 
my appetite for lood is cood. 

Yours with respect,

WASHINGTON, IX C., Jul.vtfT, J874. 

SIR: Whilst I shrink from publicity, as 
would every noble-born woman, reared in 
"the Old School'' of good old Virginia, yet I 
feel it to be a Christian duty to let others 
Have the benefit of my experience; there- 
fore, (as your Agent,) I give you my certifi- 

In October, 1871, 1 was stricken down with 
a sudden and serious illness, which shut me 
in my room for a fortnight. By GOD'S dispen- 
sation, my circumstances were very much 
reduced, 90 that I used only such simple 
remedies as were within my means. In a 
-suffering condition, I resumed my duties, 
not, as usual, regulary, nor with punctual- 
ity; for I lost a good deal of time. Six 
months afterwards,, (March,) I became aware 
oi the fact, that if I ate, beef, potatoes, but- 
ter, or baker's bread, I would fall upon my 
lounge in a stiff spasm, and rema n insensi- 
ble for two or three hours together. Upon 
returning to consciousness,'! was so entirely 
prostrated that at least a half hour would 
elapse before I could stir even a finger to- 
wards rising. Soon after this, dumb chills 
set in. I almost perished for want of water; 
I didn't dare to take more than a taste or 
two, in t lie course of the day, and even this 
small quantity, would often cause such in- 
tense illness for the space of ten or fifteen 
minnteStthat persons present were "alarmed 
at my appearance." I grew worse daily, 
yet my untiring energy (the gift of God) 
kept me up. In May 1873, 1 discovered that 
my feet swelled so that my shoes were often 
too painful to bear. My sufferings were 
very great. My diet was reduced almost en^ 
tirely to good strong coffee, buttermilk aud 
fruit You will remember, Dr. Johnson, 
that in July, 1873, my cousiu, Miss B., 
{GPtown) wrote you, without my knowl- 
edge, to send some of your "Indian Blood 
Syrup," instead of which you sent the pa- 
pers, requesting ner "to find a good agent." 
She handed them to me. After great hesita- 
iioti, (for I felt too ill to attend to any extra 
duty.) I tool; 5- hem, wrote to you the next 

day, and received the box on Thursday 
31th. Being able to go about, I was afraid 
to try it, lest it might render me helpless 
and useless. However, on Sunday, 27th, 
1873, 1 resolved, with many fear, to begin 
with it. Small doses broke the chills,wuich 
left me in a fortnight. By the end of Au- 
gust, my health and strength were entirely 
re-established. To my astonishment, my 
sight very much improved, for I've been 
threatened with blindness at different peri- 
ods of my life. In October, having no fire, 
a severe attack of catarih seized me, causing 
my head, nose, and throat to be seriously 
sore. A fifty-cent bottle relieved all this. 

In November the cough returned. When, 
in December, I found myself dangerously 
ill with pi euro pneumoiua(which proved fa- 
tal to so many) I began upon a dollar bottle. 
During this fortnight I had no nourishment, 
save coffee and apples. Before I quite fin- 
ished the bottle, (I took large doses,) friends 
found me so ill, and insisted upon my .going 
to Providence Hospital to be taken care of. 
At the hospital I was the recipient of the 
greatest kindness; and the chief surgeou, 
Dr. K., a most .skillful, kind, and honest 
physician, pronounced my "whole system to 
be in a healthy condition, no medical treat- 
ment was deemed necessary ordered beef- 
tea, and handed me over to the cook." I 
recovered entirely from this. 

In the Spring the Roseola appeared in the 
city to great extent. I was afflicted with it 
for three weeks. Only two days I was quit*' 
sick. Except four doses of nitre. I again de- 
pended upon the blood Syrup, taking it and 
rubbing with it. My friends call me "The 
walking Advertiser of the Remedy." 

A number of persons in Washington, who 
have used the Blood Syrup properly and 
faithfully, have been entirely restored to 
health, and are delighted with it, saying. 
"The Blood Syrup is wonderful; 1 never 
knew anything to. compare with i i."

"Warning- to 

Beware of all unstamped medicines Un- 
principled persons are flooding the country 
with spurious medicines that are not pro- 
perly stamped a required by law. Some of 
these medicines are not stamped at all, 
others are stamped with a smaller descrip- 
tion of stamp than required. Agents should 
see that a four cent stamp be upon all medi- 
cines thai sell for ne dollar, and that a two 
cent stamp be upon all medicines that sell 
for fifty cents. 

Ail agents who sell or offer for sale any 
medicines not fully stamped, do so in VIOLA- 
TION OF LAW, and are liable to a heavy tine 
or imprisonment. 

These parties who s windle the government, 
attempt to excuse their evasion of the law 
by stating that their medicines are not 
"proprietary articles." All such excuses are 
merely attempts to cheat the government 
and to lead their agent to believe that there 
is no danger in offering such medicines for 

It is the duty of all Jaw-abiding citizens 
to see that medicines which are being of- 
fered for sale be properly stamped; and, if 
found unstamped or insufficiently stamped, 
the fact should be at once reported to the 
Assessor of the district, who will deal with 
the guilty parties according to law. If the 
Assessor neglects to perform his duty in the 
matter, it should then be reported to the 
Commissioner of Internal Kevenue, Wash-

compel the district Assessor to do his duty. 




Half-Dollar Bottles Better

Clark Johnson's Indian Blood Syrup for 
Kidney Affection and Liver Complaint, I

half-dollar bottles did more for me than 
fifty dollars' worth of doctoring.
