To Miss Lorraine Pierson, who, by her
noble example of unselfish devotion to our
Alma Mater, and to the fostering of those
ideals which she has given us, has proved
herself to be endowed with those virtues
which make of one a true teacher, a splen-
did character, and a worthy friend.

Four years ago a goodly number of Freshman came to McKendree
College to enter into its atmosphere for a term of years, which looked to
them, at that time, a century. But soon came the realization that college
days pass only too quickly.
We came through the Freshman year victorious and entered into the
Sophomore year with decreased numbers but, unmolested by the upper-
classmen, learned the ways of the world by experience. The Junior year-
passed and now we come to the close of our college course realizing with
Pope that we cannot here take space to set clown all our memories for,
"Lulled in the countless chambers of the brain our thoughts are linked
by many a hidden chain ; awake but one, and lo, what myriads rise !"
But we do wish to recall and to review only a few of the many.
Among our number are found four of the last graduates of the Old
Academy: Delta Jessop, M. P. Akers, J. B. Zimmerman, and G. O. Karnes.
It was through the efforts of members of our class that the Press
Club was founded, and that a chapter of Pi Kappa Delta was formed
at McKendree. Here the names of "Pete" Akers and "Zim" Zimmerman
may be mentioned.
Again we remember that for two years we were victorious in the in-
ter-class basketball tournament and that for three years we were winners
of the inter-class track meet. We have had representatives in every form
of athletics and it is with especial pride that we point to "Monk" New-
comb as one of us.
In Plato, Philo, Clio, Pi Kappa Delta, The Student Association, Y. M.,
Y. W., the '24 McKendrean, and many other activities of the college, mem-
bers of the class of '25 have taken leading parts.
During these four years we have formed a peculiar attachment for
our college, an attachment which every McKendrean forms, and we de-
part testifying, as many have before us, to the beauty of the "Old McKen-

The days have sped by, our jolly days are passed.
Before we're dignified seniors we'll tell you of our class.
The prexy of our class has the eloquence of a lawyer.
He will keep forever Young; Rah, for William Sawyer.
Next comes Satchel Schuwerk, who is both witty and wise,
He has enough intelligence for one just twice his size.
Dorothy Harmon, a lassie fair, is one you'd like to know,
A reader fine, a leader too, her aim is never low.
The charm of Billie Denbeaux, speaks of culture rare,
Her wisdom, pep, and beauty, drives away all care.
St. Clair Harris is very quiet, but action speaks louder than word,
He is a dependable man, you see. his praises are always heard.
Then there is Walter Bailey, who is a fine debater.
He excells in everything he does, the world will know him later.
Feggy Smith is our actress, and also our artist rare,
A pretty girl and quite brilliant, her sky is always fair.
Happiness of babbling brooks, is mirrored in her smile,
Dreams, romances, and fiction, the thoughts of Barbara beguile.
Wop Isom is our star athlete, in scholarship does excel,
A quiet, willing worker, success will surely spell.
Sullins is a steady player, in games of intellect and skill,
Lebanon should be very proud of her student on the "Hill."
Percy Hill, our Chemistry man, is known to be very wise,
He. like "Satch", is quite small, great power within him lies.
Full of pep, a bouncing step, carefree — this is no myth,
A bit of heaven in her eyes, thus we remember Opal Smith.
So calm and peaceful is Christine, one never knows she's near,
ut her friendly, kindly acts, have made her to us clear.
Bob Stephens is a giant in intellectual prowess,
We girls don't try to capture him. you see his wife won't allow us.
A happy person is George Darrow, he's a most ambitious boy,
He comes seven miles to school each day, education to him is joy.
Carter the famous basketeer, is one of our jolly crowd,
A hearty laugh, a genial manner, spirits are never cowed.
Sizemore is another musician, the piano is his mainstay,
He has a ready word or song to cheer us on our way.
The able prexy of the "Y" also hails from our number,
When Adair in his Ford speeds by. pedestrians best not slumber.
Hollis and Page we never see, they're always gone away,
To teach the people in their Church, the many evils of modern day.
Walker and Wahl walk among us, gently speaking here and there.
Their many acts of goodness are known of everywhere.
Mowe, Van Ness, and Hause, are the last but not least of our crew,
They are always happy and jolly, because they have nothing else to do.
We've sung the praises of Juniors, and this prayer we raise,
That when we are Seniors we still may merit your praise.

The present year has been a very successful one in
the School of Music and Expression. There has been an
increased enrollment in all departments.
McKendree has a quartette and two excellent Glee
Clubs directed by Miss Harper of the Voice Department.
Enrollment in the Violin Department has more than
doubled that of last year. Under the leadership of Harry
Mueller, the violin, orchestra and band work have added
much to the musical activities of the College.
Similar improvement has been made in the Depart-
ment of Expression under the direction of Miss Patmore.
The Play "Clarence" by Booth Tarkington was a great
The Piano Department has added a new Steinway
Grand Piano. Also a two-manual Gratian Pipe Organ
has been installed in the College Chapel. A complete
course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Music is now
offered in Piano, Organ and Voice. Certificates are
granted upon the completion of a two-year course in
Expression and Public School Music.

The McKendree Quartette is an ensemble of which the College is just-

voices which blend beautifully. The constituency of the quartette remains
intact from the time of its formation two years ago. Last summer the
quartette established an enviable reputation throughout Southern Illinois
which it toured for the purpose of getting students for McKendree.
This summer the quartette will again delight Southern Illinois audi-
ences with its extensive repertoire of quartette harmonies, duets, solos,

Bacchus, one of the Roman gods, after wandering joyously through the fields,
grows weary and falls asleep. He is surprised by some nymphs who surround him.
After his initial fright is past, he and the nymphs become friends. In their frolicking
he initiates them into the secret of making the Nectar of the gods. The Bacchanalian
revelry follows which ends in the death of the poor nymphs, who not being immortal
were unable to drink the Nectar of the gods. In his despair Bacchus calls Venus to
his aid. Unable to restore them to life she finally changes the Nymphs into trees. In
answer to the renewed pleadings of Bacchus, she reveals the fact that if they could
bring back the flame of life from Pluto's realm, the Nymphs could be restored. This
is accomplished and the friends of the Nymphs all rush in to celebrate the happy
Friends of Nymphs: Vera Andrews; Emma Bergmann; Helen Barlow; Alma Buess;

The Student Association of McKendree was organized in 1921 and is
a valuable organization as it gives students practical training in Parlia-
mentary drill and self-government. The Association loyally and enthus-
iastically supports all forms cf athletics as well as any enterprise promoted
by the College. Any student regularly enrolled automatically becomes a
member of the Association.
The Association has charge of the Chapel services each Friday morn-
ing. At these meetings any business which concerns the student body is
disposed of. After the business session an interesting and entertaining
program is provided by individual students or organizations of the school.

®Ijc pisttoman Jatcnury Society
In 1849 gold was discovered in California. Thousands of men and
women crossed the prairies, struggled o'er the mountains, or braved the
rigors of an Antarctic sea in order that they might enrich themselves.
In 1849 sixteen students of McKendree College met and organized
the Platonian Literary Society in order that they, and those who came
after them, might have the advantage of training in forensics and parlia-
mentary procedure. To this was added a spirit of fraternity.
In 1925 those who gave their lives for gold are forgotten or little re-
membered. But those who founded the Platonian Literary Society are
revered today by hundreds of Platonians who have taken advantage of
the opportunity presented to them by the organization. Men too numer-
ous to mention have entered McKendree College, joined the Platonian
Literary Society, and then gone forth, after their training was complete,
to play their part in the drama of life. And they have always given credit
to Plato, in whose Hall they learned the art of public speaking, for much
of their success.
Plato, however, has not been content with laurels won in former days.

The Clionian Literary Society was founded in 1869, soon after the
admission of women to McKendree, and ever since that time has been a
valuable adjunct of the school. In the course of its history it has num-
bered among its members the most successful women who have gone forth
from the institution.
It is the aim of Clio to provide an opportunity for the student to de-
velop qualities of leadership, and to increase the ability to speak easily
and fluently. To attain this aim, besides the regular weekly meetings and
literary programs, Clio has many social gatherings. Among these are the
"Kid Party", the Initiation Service, Clio Homecoming, and the Triennial
Banquet. Twice each year members of Clio prepare and give a program
which shows how the literary and musical talent has been developed.
Memories of happy associations in Clio Hall are cherished by the old
members who have gone forth into the world to put into actual practice
the ideals Clio has helped to form.
That Clio may go on rendering, in ever-increasing measure, the ser-
vice it is best fitted to render, that it may at all times prosper, and ever
live up to its loftiest ideals, so that we in truth may say "All is well", is the
sincere desire of those Clionians who, with the passing of 1925, will retire
from the roll of active members.

The Philosophian Literary Society, founded in 1837, is almost as old as
McKendree College. For eighty-eight years, during the school year, Philo
has been holding weekly meetings for the developement of oratory, debate,
and literary pursuits.
The society has always been dominated by a strong social and fra-
ternal spirit which has resulted in the formation of life-long friendships
and cherished memories of happy hours under under Philo's Star.
Philos have bean a vital factor in State and National politics. McKen-
dree has had three representatives in the United States Senate — all Philos :
Frank Hereford, L. Y. Sherman, and Charles S. Deneen, Ex-Governor of
Illinois. The Society has had almost continuous representation in the Illi-
nois Legislature since 1849, and in Congress since 1863. Philo has been
well represented on the judicial bench, and points with pride to Judge Wil-
liam M. Farmer, present Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Illinois, as
well as to Honorable Charles S. Zane, who as Chief Justice of Utah, handed
down the decision which sounded the knell of polygamy.
Other prominent Philos are: Honorable Jehu Baker, former minister
to Venezeula ; Brigadier General Jesse H. Moore, former Consul General
to Peru ; John Locke Scripps, one of the founders of the Chicago Tribune ;
Isaacs N. Higgins, former Editor of the San Francisco Morning Call;
Judge Silas Bryan, father of William Jennings Bryan ; and a host of others
including several State Superintendents of Education, heroes of three wars,
and eleven college presidents.
Although the tradition of Philo is rich, she does not live in the past
alone, but putting aside personal gain, she labors for a larger and better
McKendree, whose sons will serve in a greater way even than those of

The Illinois Theta Chapter of Pi Kappa Delta, national honorary forensic society,
was established at McKendree College in the spring of 1924. Formal installation cere-
monies took place in the fall of 1924 with Professor Seibert of Bradley Tech represent-
ing the national organization.
Pi Kappa Delta, membership in which is open to those who have represented their
college in intercollegiate oratory or debate, has 108 chapters in the United States.
Students winning' forensic honors at McKendree College are thus given national rec-
Debate and oratory have been prominent in the school life of McKendree this year.
The College has taken part in three men's delates and three for women. In addition
an oratorical and extemporaneous speaking contest, in which five institutions par-
ticipated, was held here.
The Pi Kappa Delta debate question. Resolved: That Congress should be empower-
ed to over-ride by a two-thirds vote decisions of the Supreme Court which declare acts
of Congress unconstitutional, was used in the three men's debates and in one of the
other two co-ed debates. In the other two co-ed debates the question. Resolved: That
the Philippines should be granted immediate and complete independence, was used.
The debating teams were as follows:

An oratorical and extemporaneous speaking League consisting of Greenville, Ew-
ing, Will Mayfield, Blackburn and McKendree was organized this year at the instance of
Miss Belle Nixon. McKendree forensic coach. John B. Zimmerman represented McKen-
dree in the oratorical contest and Milbum P. Akers in the extemporaneous speaking
contest. These were held under the supervision of the League.

The McKendree Review, the student weekly newspaper of McKendree
College, is published by the Press Club. Membership in this organization
is placed on a competitive basis, students desiring membership being re-
quired to submit numerous examples of their work which is then judged by
the faculty advisers and the editor-in-chief.
The Press Club furnishes an excellent opportunity for students in-
terested in journalism to obtain practical experience which will be bene-
ficial to them later in their chosen field.
Miss Belle Nixon, professor of English, and S. M. McClure, head of
the division of science, are the faculty advisers of the Review. Milburn
P. Akers, who served for three semesters as the editor-in-chief, resigned at
the end of the first semester and was succeeded by Miss Dorothy Harmon.
John B. Zimmerman, who was business manager in 1923-24, and was re-
elected for 1924-25, resigned during the first semester and was succeeded
by Victor Haines.
The Press Club is now housed in new quarters, permission having been
obtained from the college to build a new room in the College Chapel. The
room was built this year and has been a decided asset to the organization.
F. A. Behymer, feature writer for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, was
the principal speaker at a banquet which was given by the Club.
Every student in the college is a subscriber for the McKendree Re-
view, their subscription being included in their fees which are paid each
semester. Many members of the Alumni Association and former students
of the college subscribe for the paper and it serves as a unifying agency
for the entire McKendree family.

Coach E. A. Davis and his assistant. Prof. J. P. Xeal formed a coaching staff for
the Purple which established a record far above that of any recent years. Having
played through college together and coached opposing teams, they were well acquain-
ted with each other's methods and made an excellent coaching staff.
In his year and a half as mentor of McKendree's teams, Coach (Lefty) Davis de-
veloped several teams of the championship class. He resigned at the end of the first
semester to accept an enviable position as director of athletics in Centenary College,
at Shreveport, Louisiana.
Coach Charles M. VanCleave has been appointed to pilot the Bear Cats during the
coming year. He has filled a position as the Athletic Director of the Olney High School
for over a decade. During this time his teams have won seven undisputed Egyptian
championships. After such success in the high school field Coach VanCleave will un-
doubtedly continue McKendree's succession of championships.
M\}t football Jlccorft
During the past four years McKendree College has made steady prog-
ress in football development. Last autumn the climax of this develop-
ment was reached when the purple won her first "Little Nineteen" cham-
pionship without a defeat in the seven games played. Not since the days
of President Harmon's "Tri-State Champions" has McKendree been rep-
resented by so formidable a squad. Weight, speed, and ability— all co-
ordinated by excellent team play made a powerful scoring attack and of-
fered a defense almost impregnable to conference opponents.
The season opened inauspiciously. But seven players remained from
the 1923 squad and Coach Davis used the three pre-conference games in
an effort to effect the proper combination from the horde of inexperienced
Freshman material. The Scott Field Aviators held the Bear Cats to a
J 3-13 score in the initial game at Hypes Field. On the following week
the Missouri School of Mines administered the only defeat of the season.
The final extra-conference contest, with Ewing College as the oppo-
nent, demonstrated for the first time the potential scoring ability of the
1924 eleven. Thirteen touchdowns, a safety, and eight tries-for-point
counted the largest score made during the year. The material for the
conference champions had been selected and even then was being welded
into the best scoring machine in Illinois.
The first conference game was staged at Jacksonville with Illinois
College. The Purple decisively outplayed the Presbyterians in every phase
of football and were on numerous occasions in scoring territory. At that
time, however, the precision, as well as the "scoring punch" so prominent
in later games, had not yet been developed and to the Presbyterians goes
the season's honor of holding the Conference champions scoreless.
The Eastern Illinois Normal Eleven afforded the first of the half-
clozen conference victories. Before the largest crowd in recent years on
Hypes Field the Bear Cats exhibited the first consistently brilliant attack
and sustained defense to overcome the hard fighting visitors. The first
field goal of the year and two touchdowns netted the seventeen points of
the game, but failed to represent the real superiority of the battling Bear
Cats over the Easterners.
Although the opening of the third conference game with Blackburn
found seven regulars on the bench, a touchdown was registered in the
first three minutes of play. The entire game was featured by straight
line bucks and end runs. The frequent yet effective substitutions in the
Davis lineup showed that the Bear Cats were bidding fair for Egyptian
honors. During the game the Bear Cat center straddled the ball for one
hundred and twelve plays, while the opponents were in possession of the
ball but twenty times.
Lincoln proved a more stubborn foe than was expected, holding the
Bear Cats to a 3-3 tie during the first half. In the last half the Davis-
men found their stride and out-played the Railsplitters by a 16-3 score.
The hardest conference game with Coach Omar's Carthage College
squad followed the Railsplitter contest. Here for the first time in the
season the Purple met her equal in weight and speed, and aggressive play
decided the game in favor of the Bear Cats with a touch down in each
half of the game. The defensive play of the Davis-men was, on the whole,
the outstanding feature of the contest and demonstrated that the Bear
Cat eleven was reaching championship calibre in this phase of the game
as well as in the attack.
The Home-Coming crowd saw the Purple at the peak of its form
against the S. I. N. U. aggregation. A 65-yard run lor a touchdown in
the opening moments of play began the scoring which never ended until
the forty-two points were counted. The fighting* Teachers, how-
ever, spoiled the Purple claim to an uncrossed goal-line in the final mo-
ments of play by recovering a fumble in the shadow of their own goal posts
and converting it into a touchdown after a 90-yard run.
The final game of the season found a badly bruised and crippled Bear
Cat squad pitted against Shurtleff. While the visitors displayed a spark-
ling offense, the defensive work of Purple forwards held them scoreless,
and the crippled attack counted for 24 points to bring to an end the
most successful McKendree football season in recent years.

McKendree's athletic success in championships was not confined to
football, since the Purple was equally successful in basketball. Among the
thirty men who were early candidates for the team, there were six letter-
men. Early in the season Coach Davis was assured of a hard-working
squad without having a continual grind. Fifteen games were staged dur-
ing the season, ten of which were conference games. Of these ten there
were eight victories.
The conference season opened in a contest with the Lincoln College
Railsplitters. Although this game exhibited the early season mistakes,
such as bad passing and wild shooting, the Davis-men kept well in the lead
throughout the game.
The work of the Bear Cats against the Western Teachers of Macomb
was an improvement over their action of the previous night against Lin-
coln. A 21-2 score before the visitors found the basket illustrates this
point. However, at the beginning of the second half there was a decided
spurt and at one time the visitors were one point ahead. But a reaction,
bringing the Purple on the long end of the score, was featured by a long-
shot duel in which Captain Newcom was involved.
The next week a Missouri invasion resulted in two victories for the
Purple. The first game with the Rolla Miners offered dangerous com-
petition in the early part of the game. The high scoring ability of the
Purple forwards and the excellent defense of the remaining three men
were the outstanding features of this fray, as well as in the victory over
the Springfield Teachers on the following night.
Returning from the Missouri trip the Bear Cats trounced Carthage
College for the third conference victory. After appearing somewhat life-
less in the early part of the game, the Davis-men led the half and re-
turned with an intensified defense. This was too much for the Carthage
At Alton the Purple annexed another victory in a one-sided game
against the Shurtleff Pioneers. The use of reserves was prominent in
ihis game. Captain Newcom again led the scoring attack with sixteen
Although the Rolla Miners came for revenge they suffered a second
defeat at the hands of the Bear Cats. The game opened with the char-
acteristic whirlwind playing. Although greatly outclassed in size,
Fighting Little Magill" showed excellent scoring ability in this as well
as in the other games.
Being consistent w T ith tradition the Southern Illinois Normal Quin-
tet, probably played the best game of the season against the Purple.
The Davis scoring-machine was barely able to hold its own during the
fore part of the battle. However, "Red" Berst broke a tie in the second
period, which started the winning.
A fast aggregation from the Maryville Teachers College afforded the
Bear Cats some keen competition for the third game of the week. The
consistent and repeated scoring on both sides ended the first period with
a 10-10 score. By the end of the 21-18 victory the fans had witnessed
one of the most hotly contested engagements of the season.
The last conference game at home was a victory over the Shurtleff
squad again, although three of the regulars were on the bench. In spite
of the fact that the Pioneers started the scoring early, the Davis squad
had doubled the score at the half. Thereafter the score continually piled
up until a 49-20 victory was reached.
The seventh conference victory over the Southern Illinois Normal
squad compared favorably to the game with the Pioneers. The opening,
strong, offensive play of the teachers was soon quenched by Carter if it
successfully encountered the floor guarding of Isom, — all of which was
too much for the Egyptians.
The thirteenth consecutive victory was collected from Lincoln Col-
lege at Lincoln. From the start to the finish of the encounter the teams
alternated for the lead in the scoring. The Railsplitters proved much more
invincible than in the earlier game, and it took the best efforts of the
Bear Cats to conquer them.
Playing in the second game of an unpromising road-trip, the Purple
victors received the first taste of defeat when they bowed to the Western
Teachers of Macomb. The opponents, however, did not have an easy vic-
tory. Neither did the untiring efforts of the fighting Bear Cats keep
Carthage from administering a defeat in the final conference game of the
The hottest and probably the best game of the season was the last
game with Concordia Seminary of St. Louis. The Purple squad showed
the disastrous effects of the intensive strain for the conference title, and
after a very fast and hard fought game the Bear Cats dropped the battle
to the visitors. Displaying excellent ability in passing and shooting, Cap-
tain Newcom played his last college basketball in this game. He had led
his team through the most successful basketball season in years.
James Newcom — "Monk"
Fighting from whistle to whistle Monk
was good for a basket from any part of
the floor. He was a true star of the
game during every minute.
John Isom — "Wop"
Wop has played three years with the
Purple squad and every year he shows
marked improvement. A fast man he
broke up play after play for the oppo-
ayo Magill — ' ' Mac

to any one who tried to stop him. A:

Frank Runyan — ' ' Jake ' '
This was Jake's first season. An excel-

through an offense at the right time.
Donald Berst — "Red"
Red was steady as an old horse. Could
not take part in the last few games be-
cause of injuries, but always played a
hard, fighting game.
Made a fast running mate for either
"Monk" or "Mac." Although coming out
late he added much to the team's scoring
During his three years at McKendree
Ray has proved invaluable on defense un-
der the basket. He was a real factor in
discouraging opposing forwards.

after a season out of the game and im-
proved steadily throughout the season.

He was true proof of the saying that
good things come in little parcels.
During the 1924 season no baseball team was organized at McKen-
dree. However, the class of '28 brought an influx of baseball material,
and since several letter-men are again doing good work, the Purple bids
fair for a promising baseball squad.
Although the team worked well together, the first four games of the
season were lost. The first of these defeats was registered in St. Louis
by Washington University and was duplicated here by the same oppo-
nents on the following week. In concluding this same week the Purple lost
to Concordia and Eden Seminaries of St. Louis by scores of 12-6 and 10-7

Track Review (1924)
The first evidence of a hard working track team for 1924 was shown
in the triangluar meet in St. Louis between Washington, Rolla and the
Purple. In this meet Washington took first place and McKendree second.
The Purple received first honors with a large score in a similar meet
when Shurtleff and Western Military Academy were the opponents.
The third appearance of the McKendree athletes was the participa-
tion of the Medley relay team in the Drake Relays.
In the Bradley State meet held at Peoria, Goode tallied a first in the
javelin and the relay team placed.
Early in the 1925 season Goode, the Purple javelin thrower, made an
admirable showing in the Drake Relays by counting second honors in this
Among the meets booked for the 1925 season there were two dual
meets with Shurtleff and a triangular meet with Ewing College and South-
ern Illinois Normal University.

The eighth annual McKendree Interscholastic was held on May the
second. It was marked by the general increase in successfulness, which
has been characteristic of each of the consecutive previous meets. These
occasions have always offered an outlet or climax for the best track and
field athletes of Central and Southern Illinois high schools.
Thirty-six high schools entered contestants in the 1925 Interscholastic,
representing an increase of three schools over the 1924 meet. This fact,
as well as the breaking of six standing records, illustrates the successful-
ness of this eighth event. The records broken were in the shot-put, jave-
lin, 440 yard run, 220 yard dash, discus, and the relay. The records in the
440 and 220 has been standing since 1916.
In the track and field events Eldorado led the scoring with twenty-
four and one half points. Staunton followed with a half point less, while
Carlinville finished in third place. Votaw of Mt. Carmel received individual
honors by amassing eleven points.
Competing in the largest Interscholastic tennis tournament ever held
at McKendree, Centralia won the doubles and Mascoutah the singles.
The intellectual meet was marked by a record number of contestants
and the excellent talent displayed. Centralia High School carried first
honors with a total of eighteen points, while Eldorado and O'Fallon tied
for second and third with six points each.
The ninth Interscholastic will be held the first Saturday in May, 1926.

Mrs. B. Sickley, 8 Too Much Avenue, Indigestion, Iowa, writes:
I wish to be one of the many riters to tell of my marked improvaments due to
the efficiency of yor wonderful remedy. Three years ago I was a complete wreck.
I was a victim of acute harmonica, internal revenue, and a host of other suburban
attacks too numerous 2 mention. At times my head pained me so that I was forced
to use crutches, and on examining my eyes the doctor told me that I was forced
to be totally deaf in two years. My nerves were in such a terrible state that for
months I could not pass a gravy dish at the dinner table. I was utterly unable co
prepare meals for my family, and this forced the cook to leave. My full weight
fell off so perceptibly that I was forced to wear galoshes to keep me on the ground.
At last I heard of your wonderful cure and sent for a bottle of Funerol. I had
only swallowed three spoonsful when I realized that behind the clouds there was
a silver lining. Even the conductor on the; street car noticed the change. All of
my former ills have disappeared except one; I am still dizzy, but I feel confident that
nine more gallons of Funerol, which has saved so many, will bannish my last regret.
(Signed) Mrs. B. Sickley.
Thousands of these letters pour into our office every day. Simply mail us your
name and collar size along with two dollars in stamps and we will mail you free of
charge the wonderful Funerol which has saved so many from old age and decrepitude.
