IN PRESENTING this little book to our many patrons, we take pleasure in giving a brief history of the birth and growth of the now world-famous Wake- field's Family Medicines (Purely Vegetable). Wakefield's Family Medicines are the result of the efforts of a celebrated physician to fulfill the overwhelming demand for his professional services. Wakefield's Medicine Manufactory was established in 1846, which makes it among the foremost of pioneers in this great department of medicine. From its infancy Dr. Cyrenus Wakefield devoted his time and skill to its progress, and every succeeding year has demonstrated the success due to their intrinsic value and his careful management. D.?. C. Wakefield was born in Watertown, N. Y., in the year 1815, and was a direct descendant from Thomas Wakefield, who emigrated from Wakefield, York- shire, England, the village that suggested to Oliver Goldsmith the subject of the beautiful story, "The Vicar of Wakefield." In the year 1868, Dr. Oscar Wakefield, having finished his studies in pharmacol- • .1 medicine, accepted the position of superintendent of the laboratory. Like her, he is a man of sterling integrity, and after gaining most thorough knowl- this vast business, assumed entire management of the concern, every depart- oi which is equipped with competent superintendents, which in itself is a guarantee of perfection. The laboratories, as well as the bottling and wrapping rooms, are models of order, neatness, and cleanliness, and are still under the guiding hand of Dr. Oscar Wakefield. The strict requirements of purity of medicinal ingredients employed are never neglected. All imported articles are required to be in unbroken original packages, with importer's seal, and all domestic goods are pro- cured in the crude state from first hands, and after being thoroughly tested for pur- ity and strength are passed through our steam-drying system and power grinding i ills. They are then subjected to the processes by which their medicinal virtues ^j.e extracted, which are duly treated, combined, and passed through their own pecu- liar process of compounding, after which they are bottled, packed, and shipped to fill orders from all parts of the United States and Canada. After all these years of unparalleled success, it is quite unnecessary to expatiate on the curative worth of these time-tried standard medicines. They are each and all thoroughly reliable for purity and efficacy in the diseases to which they are sev- erally adapted, and W3 can use no better advertisement than they will demonstrate on trial. This little book is designed as a guide to home delineation and treatment of such general diseases as these superior medicines have, after half a century o:f actual use, proved efficient in. We have attempted to describe, in as simple language as possi- ble, the general symptoms of the diseases treated and directions for their speedy cure by the medicines so adapted, enabling the possessor of this book to treat him- self and perform cures that baffle the most skilled physicians of the day, and sav- ing them exorbitant doctor bills. In conclusion, we will add that by the years of use and cures performed, Wake- field's Medicines have advertised themselves and gained a world-wide reputation. Thanking all for past patronage and soliciting a continuance of the same, we are Yours respectfully, DR. C. WAKEFIELD & CO. WAKEFIELD'S GUIDE TO HEALTH. WAKEFIELD'S BllflCKBERRV BflLiSflJVI THIS universally known medicine is a safe and sure cure for Diarrhea, Dysen- tery, Cholera Morbus, Cholera Infantum, Winter and Mountain Chol- era, Summer Complaint, Flux, and all Relaxed Conditions of the Bowels. Wakefield's Blackberry Balsam is very healing in its effect upon the irri- tated parts of the stomach and bowels. It is not merely an astringent, checking the relaxation of the bowels, but acts as a regulator, leaving the stomach and bowels in such a condition that nature again asserts control. It is nature's assistant, pleasant to take, and is recognized throughout the country as the leading remedy for all irreg- ularities of the bowels. DIRECTIONS. The average dose for an adult is one large tablespoonf ul ; for a child 7 or 8 years old, naif that amount; from 1 to 2 months old, 12 to 20 drops, given every hour till it checks the action of the bowels. In extreme cases the doses should be doubled, and even trip- led, to meet the urgency of the symptoms. Many persons, who have had long experi- ence in the use of this remedy, think they succeed better by giving large doses first, sufficient to cause a sudden reaction, after which smaller doses will control the bowels until nature restores their usual strength. When no other organs but the stomach and bowels are diseased, as in common at- tacks, three or four ordinary doses of the Balsam will effect a cure. But when the liver is torpid and the stomach bilious, the action of the bowels may not be fully regu- lated for several days. The Balsam should then be continued until it acts on the liver and regulates the bowels. For Flux, or when the relaxation is in the lower bowels, the power of the Balsam is so reduced before reaching the affected parts that no immediate benefit may result. In that case the Balsam should be mixed with warm water, say one part Balsam to two parts water, and given as an injection; this should be retained in the bowels as long as possible, and should be repeated two or three times. It invariably effectr a cure. Dysentery is also treated by injection. When the stomach or bowels seem cold or in any way congested, dry hot woolen cloths should be applied often until a reaction is effected. Winter and Mountain Cholera is be- coming prevalent of late years in this country. It is easily checked and cured by the use of the Balsam. Use it as in case of Diarrhea. Summer Complaint in Children is gen- erally caused by teething, but may be pro- duced by other causes that irritate the nerv- ous system and debilitate digestive organs. The bowels should be kept under control by use of the Balsam. Give the child a daily sponge bath, followed by thorough rubbing with the naked hands. Guard well the diet in quality and quantity of food.as the digest- ive organs are invariably weak. Keep the child quiet and cool, and persevere with judgment, keeping up a healthy action for many days, or until the system recuper- ates and the digestive organs gain their natural strength. If the child is bilious give one or two teaspoonsful of Wine Bit- ters each day. Scours in Colts and Calves should be treated with half a bottle in severe cases. Colic in Horses and Cattle should be treated with from one-half to one bottle* according to the severity of the case. WAKEFIELD'S GUIDE TO HEALTH. TESTIMONIALS. CURED AFTER BEING SO LOW HIS MIND WAS AFFEGTED. Plainview, Tex., December 20, 1892. Dr. C, Waketield & Co.— Last July I was taken sick with typhoid fever; when that was broken inflammation of the bowels set in, and when that was checked I took the diarrhea. I was under the care of three physicians, and after two months they gave my case up as hopeless. I was brought so low that I almost lost my mind. While thus suffering Mr. C. Holmes, a friend, called on me and recommended Wakefield's Black- berry Balsam. A bottle was procured, and after taking four doses I rested for fifteen hours, the first rest of any duration I had taken for two mouths. After taking six bottles I was on my feet again, to the great astonishment of my friends. M. H. NEWELL. HE MUST HAVE IT. Whiter Park, Fla., May IT, 1892. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Enclosed please find order for more Blackberry Balsam. My husband does not think he can get through the summer here without your Balsam. MRS. I. H. DIEFFENDERFER RECOMMENDED BY A PHYSICIAN. Bloomington, 111., Sept. 15, 1891. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Having read many excellent testimonials from promi- nent Bloomington people as to the efficiency of your Black bery Balsam, I wish to speak of its fame in another state. About three years ago, while resiling in Great Bend, Kansas, my little girl was taken sick with bowel complaiut. I consulted the best phy- sician there, Dr. Avers, now an eminent physician of Kansas City, who, to my great surprise. recommeudecTWakefield's Black- berry Balsam as the best for such purposes. I found it on sale at all the drug stores, and procured aud used a bottle with gratifing results. Since that we have never been without it in the house, and keep it handy in both my house and office. R. FRANK BRYANT, Architect. ONE BOTTLE ENTIRELY CURED ME. Omaha, Neb., August 10, 1891. Dr. C Wakefield & Co.— I write to let you know what I think of your Blackberry Bal- sam as a remedy for Diarrhea and Dysen- tery. I was taken with Diarrhea some time ago and consulted some of our best physi- cians here, but got no relief. After two weeks of suffering a friend called to see me, and persuaded me to try your Blackberry Balsam. I did so, and one bottle entirely cured me. Since cured I have recommend- ed it to several of my friends who had bowel troubles, and in every instance it effected a cure. A. B. HUNT, Supt. Water Works. ALL THAT IS CLAIMED FOR IT. Bonair, Iowa, Jan. 8, 1893. ■ Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I have used your Blackberry Balsam and found it all that is claimed for it. We don't intend to be with- out it in the house, and would recommend it to all. A Mr. A. A. Brown here cannot praise the Balsam enough. MRS. S. M. WEBSTER. ONE BOTTLE WAS ENOUGH. Peoria, 111., May 20, 1890. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I write this to tell you how highly I prize j'our Blackberry Balsam as a remedy for diseases of the stomach and bowels. I While traveling last summer I was taken with a very troublesome diarrhea, which followed me for some weeks, and finally compelled me to leave my business and re- turn home. As soon as I reached Peoria I placed myself under the care of a physician whom I have known for years, and whom I have every reason to believe is one of the best practitioners in the state. He treated me for three weeks without helping me a particle, and I began to fear that I was doomed to suffer the rest of my life from Chronic Diarrhea. Finally I grew so weak that I was confined to the bed. While lying there a friend induced me to try your Blackberry Balsam, since the doctor was not helping me. This I did, rather reluc- tantly I confess: but the very first dose I took of it "took hold," and before I had taken one bottle I was on my feet and able to resume business. I think I took a part of a second bottle, but, anyhow, in a few days I was fully restored to health, and I have had no recurrence of the malady since that time. I believe the medicine saved my life, and I take pleasure in thus rendering honor to whom honor is due. So far as my observa- tion goes, your Blackberry Balsam is far the best remedy for bowei troubles that I know anything about, and if these words of mine can help to convince anyone of its virtues, I shall be truly glad. Yours truly, WM. HAWLEY SMITH, of Smith & Hillman, Publishers. NEEDS NO COMMENDATION. Bloomington, 111., April 14, 1891. I Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I take great pleasure in speaking a good word for your Blackberry Balsam on all suitable occa- sions. I have used it for myself and in my family for more than twenty-five years, and it has never failed to give perfect satisfac- tion in every instance. I never leave home to be gone two days without a bottle in my satchel. In my opinion it has no equal as a remedy for Diarrhea or Dysen- tery. It, however, needs no commendation from me. as its reputation is already broad- er than our country. P. WHITMER, Pres. People's Bank. WAKEFIELD'S GUIDE TO HEALTH. CURED CHOLERA. Fairmont, Mo., Sept. 19, 1891. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Some four weeks ago Mr. W. F. Perry, general agent for J. C. Ayers & Co., had the Cholera at my house. We employed no physician, but used one and a half bottles of your Black- berry Balsam, and cured him. He was so weak after the severe pain that he stayed with me five days. This he will testify to if desired. A. C. WALSWORTH. RELIABLE AND SAFE. Bloomington, 111., May 1, 1891. Dr. C. Wakefield <& Co. — We have used your Blackberry Balsam many, many years, keeping it always on hand. Our ex- perience teaches us that it is a reliable and safe medicine, performing its office prompt- ly without leaving any bad after- effect. Yours respectfully, L. MATERN, Carriage Builder. WHOLESALE CURE OF MOUNTAIN CHOLERA. Big Stone Gap, Va., April 3, 1891. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— You will please ship us twelve dozen of Wakefield's Black- berry Balsam, which we find to be The Best Remedy for a disease here termed Mountain Cholera, which is quite prevalent at present. We have a good demand here for the Balsam. W. H. NICKELS & CO. General Merchandise. SUMMER COMPLAINT AND BABY. Bloomington, 111., July 25. 1891. ' Dr. C Wakefield & Co.— Last week our two months' old baby was taken severely with Summer Complaint. We Knew of your excellecit remedy, Wakefield's Black- berry Balsam, and at once got a bottle. We gave it in doses of 15 drops and the child was soon cured, being as well as ever at the close of the second day. The Balsam is just the article for children suffering from Summer Complaint, and we will al- ways give it praise. R. J. MURPHY. A BOON TO HUMANITY. Chicago, 111., April 13, 1891. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I deem it a great pleasure, in fact a duty, to testify to the efficacy of your Blackberry Balsam in cases of Dysentery and Diarrhea. My ex- perience with it extends over a period of several years in railroading. 1 have known it to be used in numberless cases, both by myself and by my fellow employes. I have never known it to fail in a single instance of affording satisfactory relief. Many of the train service men include a bottle of it in their train boxes as one of the neces- sities of the business. I consider it a most valuable medicine, and that you are con- ferring a boon on humanity by its manu- facture and sale. Knowing it as I do, I shall never cease to extol its virtues. l. s. Dubois, Union Depot Pass. Agt. C. & A. R. R. A DUTY TO THE PUBLIC. Boston, Mass., May 8, 1891. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— We have used Wakefield's Blackbeiry Balsam in our family for a great many years, and never feel safe without it in the house. Experi- ence has demonstrated to our entire satis- faction that there is nothing that will so faithfully, speedily, and effectually cure Chronic Diarrhea, Dysentery, and Summer Cholera, ia old or young, without causing constipation or other ills, as Wakefield's Black ben y Balsam. We believe it a duty to the public to give testimony to so excel- lent a preparation. J. B. HENNEY. BEST IN THE WORLD. Bloomington, 111., June 11. 1891. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I take great pleas- sure in recommending to the public your Blackberry Balsam. We have used it in our family for years and would feel lost without it. For summer diseases of the bowels it cannot be excelled. It is pleasant to the taste and does its work effectually. I think it is the best medicine in the world, as it causes no bad effect. Knowing it as I do, I am proud your extensive manufactory is located in our city. As a home institu- tion your goods have no superior anywhere. J. P. McLEAN, A Prominent Boot and Shoe Dealer. UNSURPASSED. Bloomington, 111., June 22, 1891. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I have sold your medicines for about forty years, and they have given universal satisfaction. Your Blackberry Balsam is unsurpassed for the purposes recommended. WM. W. MARMON, Wholesale Drugs. SCOURS EN COLTS. Hayden, Ind., June 2. 1892. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Having used your Blackberry Balsam for several years in doctoring myself and family, with the best of satisfaction, I experimented with it a little this spring. I have a fine colt that took scours when one week old : after try- ing all the remedies commonly used in such cases, with no good results, I gave four doses of your Blackberry Balsam, table- spoonful at a dose, one hour apart, which completely cured the colt. Very respectfully, J. W. HEATON. FOR HORSES AND COLTS. Denison, Iowa. Mav 1, 1891. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— This is to certify that I consider your Blackberry Balsam the finest preparation in the market for the cure of all looseness of the bowels in young colts I have used it successfully in my prac- tice for some years with the best results —without a loss — whereas before I began giving it to colts in my care, frequent losses were had. I highly recommend it to stock raisers. W. T. BAKER, Vet. Sur. WAKEFIELD'S GUIDE TO HEALTH. WAKEFIELD'S Cough Syrup. THIS is the most prompt and effectual remedy now in use for the cure of Colds Coughs, La Grippe, Typhoid and Lung Fever, Croup, Measles, Whooping Cough, and all Throat and Lung Affections. When taken freely it equal izes the circulation, produces gentle perspiration, opens the pores, and renews a healthy action from the internal organs outward, thus relieving obstructions. It quiets the nervous system, relieves the tense and inflammatory condition of the muscular system so common in acute attacks, and also relieves the head, throat, and lungs from tightness and mucus. It will also dry up tubercles, and eradicate the tendency to consumption. In several cases it has cured consumption, so pronounced by physicians, after being given up to die by them. DIRECTIONS. For Sudden Colds very large doses are the best. Some persons report having taken a small bottle at four doses during an after- noon and evening, and found themselves free from the effects of cold in the morning. The average dose for an adult, in common cases of colds or coughs, is one teaspoonful every one or two hours, and double or treble that amount in more acute and vio- lent attacks. A dose for a child should be less in proportion to size, some requiring twice as much as others, and violent attacks require the dose increased in proportion to their obstinacy. Some require smaller and more frequent doses. On some patients it will take a small bottle a day; on others it will take a large one. One bottle generally cures a fresh cold. Persons knowing the effect they wish to produce will soon learn the size of the dose best adapted to their particular organization. The quantity that gives relief, with little or no nausea of the stomach, is the proper dose in all ordinary cases. In Typhoid Fever this remedy is inval- uable, and should be used freely. No per- son will have Typhoid Fever if the circula tion is thus properly equalized from the time the first symptoms appear. Realizing this fact you can readily perceive the com- mon-sense principle of this method of treat ing all diseases of the lungs and vital or- gans. The patient should almost wholly abstain from food for a few days while be- ing treated for violent attacks of disease. Even in bad colds it is better to fast. In all violent attacks it is best, in the start, to take one good cathartic dose, and for this we recommend our Liver Pills. Croup is caused by filling up of the wind- pipe, which must be prevented or relieved in time or suffocation and death will ensue. When the first symptoms appear give double doses of the Cough Syrup, and re- peat every fifteen minutes until relaxation and nausea is produced, or the symptoms relieved. In croup, or in sudden colds and typhoid attacks, in which the pores are suddenly closed and the system intensely tightened up, producing headache or chilliness, large and frequent doses are required. Disease should be treated according to the symp- toms manifest, regardless of its particular name, and the first object is to restore a natural action by overcoming these un- natural symptoms; and this is the tendency of the Cough Syrup, to relax the system and allow the impurities again to freely escape. In health the impurities from con- WAKEFIELD'S GUIDE TO HEALTH. stant waste of organic matter are contin- ually escaping through the pores. When the pores become suddenly closed, these retained particles become a source of ir- ritation and disease. How necessary it is then that we speedily administer this re- laxing remedy, and at the same time assist its effects by properly softening the skin and opening the pores externally. This anyone can accomplish by properly and continually making warm wet applications. Persons of strong, nervous constitution should use this Syrup in much larger doses than the average directions. The patient should take great care against fresh cold after taking relaxing treatment. Take considerable rest and keep the nerves quiet; let there be a good reaction and re- cuperation of strength and feeling before taking exercise or being exposed to the atmosphere. Continue to take enough of this medicine to promote rest, keep the pain down, and the nerves quiet. As an alterative, in purifying the blood, this medicine is not surpassed by any sarsa- parilla or cherry preparation. Li a Grippe— This disease generally comes as an epidemic, and should be treated at first with one or two doses of Wakefield's Liver Pills, keeping the lungs free during the time, and for several days, by the free use of Cough Syrup. Whooping Cough— This disease requires large doses of Cough Syrup when the whooping or choking symptoms appear. Wear plenty of warm clothing around the chest, and do not irritate the disease by taking too fatiguing exercise. Bronchitis— This is an irritation of the bronchial tube, caused by colds or by ex- cessive use of voice, or by scrofula in the blood. Take small and frequent doses of the Cough Syrup, and if it arises from scrofula the treatment should be continued some time, until it takes an alterative effect. Rub Golden Ointment well into the chest. TESTIMONIALS CONSUMPTION CURED. Leatherwood, Ind., June 1, 1891. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— A five-year-old son of John Wildman, of this place, was sick with a cough for five months. Five different cough remedies were used, and also doctors' prescriptions, without relief. Then Wakefield's Cough Syrup was recom- mended, and they got a 25-cent bottle. They began giving it and saw a change, and when this was gone one 50-cent bottle was procured, which cured the child of consump- tion, which the doctors said he had. To certify to this statement being true X hereby place my signature, and anyone doubting this statement address the under signed. N. T. COX. WILL CERTAINLY CURE LA GRIPPE. Fincastle, Ky., March 22, 1891. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I have used your Cough Syrup in a bad attack of La Grippe, and find it to be the best remedy for that disease. It will certainly cure. R. B KINCIAD. CURED CROUP. Bollsville, Mo. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— My child, six months old, had a violent attack of Croup. I tried several remedies to no effect while I was sending for yours. Your CougL Syrup gave immediate relief, and by using one half a bottle my child was restored to health. I have tried it for colds of long standing and find it the best remedy I ever used. A. S. WHEELBARKER. QUICK TO TAKE EFFECT. Middle Creek, 111., Jan., 1892. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co. — This winter while Rev. Richard Haney, of Monmouth, 111., was holding a protracted meeting at this place, he was taken sick with a severe cold and cough, and we gave him freely of your Cough Syrup at night, and next morning when he got up he said: "Well, brother, I never, in all my life, have taken any medi- cine that did me so much good in so short a time ' When he left he took a supply with him and said he would always keep some on hand*- WM. H. EARLS. THE BEST FOR WHOOPING COUGH. Dawson, Iowa, July 8, 1892. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— During a severe epidemic of Whooping Cough through this section of the country this season, your Cough Syrup has proven a very valuable remedy. Those who have used it according to directions testify to almost immediate relief, and especially with small children : it kept them from violent paroxysms, to which they are subject in this disease. It is the Best. M. T. FINLEY. SAVED HIS CHILD'S LIFE. Norman Station, Ind. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— A bottle of Cough Syrup saved my child's life. I do not want to be without it again. My child had the Whooping Cough and a fever. Our family doctor said he had done all he could and it was bound to die, but Wakefield's Cough Syrup saved it. REV. PETER AYNES. 3 WAKEFIELD'S GUIDE TO HEALTH. SAVED THE CHILD'S LIFE. Livonia, Mo. I Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Your Cough Syr'; up saved the life of my child. MRS. E..G. FRANKLIN. CURED AFTER A COUNCIL CF DOCTORS FAILED. Bushnell, 111., Jan. 10, 1883. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— A physician of thirty years' practice says: That in the case of Mrs. Dunken, one bottle of Wakefield's Cough Syrup was used in connection with his practice with marvelous success. The ( patient was prostrated several weeks: all physicians around her had pronounced her case hopeless, as there was a large cavity in her throat caused from bronchial affec- tion. She threw from her lungs one and a half pints of matter in 24 hours. She now lives and is well. G. J. COWGILL. ALMOST A MIRACLE. Prentice. 111., January 15, 1890. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— This is to certify that one year ago I had the Consumption, at least the doctors said I had, and pre- scribed medicine for that disease, which t have taken, and several other kinds of medicine that did not seem to do me any good. In fact my friends thought my days were numbered. At last I was induced by Mr. J. H. Hubbs, your agent, to try Wake- field"s Cough Syrup, which I did. and by the time spring opened up I was able to go to my work, which is ditching. Now I cheer- fully say that your Cough Syrup cured me. Respectfully, C. H. MASSEY. Witness: John Boston, J. P. FORTY YEARS WITH GRATIFYING SUGCESS Bloomington, 111.. July 24, 1891. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— For a period of over forty years I have used your excellent remedies with the most gratifying suc- cess. Your Cough Syrup is certainly with- out an equal for Coughs, Colds, and the first stages of Pneumonia. With myself and family it has never failed to give f>rompt and permanent relief. With the atter affection I use it in conjunction with your Golden Ointment, which I apply to the chest externally, and after drying in before a fire I apply hot flannels with the most gratifying results. MRS. U. O. ANDRUS. CURED AFTER GIVEN UP TO DIE. Bethlehem. Ind. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Your Cough Syr- 1 up saved the life of my sister. She lived in Louisville, Ky., and two of the best doc- tors attended her for six months, doing her no good. She coughed day and night, and finally came to my house to die. I immedi- ately got your Cough Syrup and gave her of it freely, and in three weeks she went home; but she did not take her cough with her, for she was well. Anyone doubting this statement can address me and learn the truth of it. B. W. RICE. A WONDERFUL MEDICINE. Edmonson, Mo., March 31, 1893. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Your Cough Syr- up is the best cough medicine in the world. It saved my baby*s life, when he was almost gone. It also saved the life of Mrs. Yount's child, of this place. I think it does just what it is recommended to do. I could not raise a family without it. My house has not been without it for a long time, and I don't think it ever will be. God knows the grat- itude I feel toward Dr. C. Wakefield for his wonderful medicine. MRS. CORA SWEARNGIN. A SORE ANKLE 25 YEARS ENTIRELY CURED. Beaverville, 111. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I recommend your Golden Ointment and Egyptian Liniment very highly. I have had a* very sore ankle for the last 25 years, and have tried every thing, yet could find nothing to do any good until I tried Wakefield's Golden Oint- ment and Eyptian Liniment, which have cured me sound and well. I think it is the best medicine I ever used. MARY J. WOODS. CURED ERYSIPELAS. Granville, Iowa. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I use Wakefield's Golden Ointment in our family for almost every disease flesh is heir to. It has per- formed miraculous cures ; it has cured my little girl of Erysipelas. MRS. NEEDHAM. ACTS LIKE MAGIC. Elk Falls, Kansas. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— The Golden Oint- ment is splendid, and has been used with astonishing success in cases of Lung Fever. Make a plaster and apply as you would a mustard plaster. It draws out all fever and pain as if by magic. It is far superior to a mustard plaster. M. S. DOUD. CERTAIN CURE FOR BURNS. Henrietta, Neb. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Your Golden Ointment is the most certain and speedy cure for Burns I ever tried. M. McCLIMANS. CORNS AND BOILS. Bloomington. 111., June 12, 1891. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I take pleasure in adding my testimony to the merits of your Golden Ointment, which I first used some four years ago for Soft Corns, and afterward for Boils, both with excellent re- sults. Being a traveling man I carry it constantly with me, and would not be with- out it. H. C. HARRISON. FROM A MAN WHO IS POSTED. Bristol, Conn.. Oct. 18, 1888. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Please send me four dozen bottles of Golden Ointment. It is the best thing I know of. Mfr. Hardware. J. H. SESSIONS, JR. WAKEFIELD'S GUIDE TO HEALTH. WAKEFIELD'S GOIxDEN OlfiTlWEflT. THIS preparation is the Balm of Gilead in all cases where an external appliea* tion of a cleansing, soothing, softening, or healing nature is required. No fam- ily should be without a bottle at hand at all times, in case of Burns, Scalds, Cuts, Frosted Parts, etc., where prompt application is essential to speedy- relief and cure. It is equally as good for Corns, long-standiDg old Running Sores, Boils, Felons, Sore Nipples, Caked Breast, Scald Head, Chapped Hands, etc. It has no equal for Sore Throat. As it contains nothing of a poisonous nature it can be taken inwardly with excellent effect. In Catarrh and Cold in the Head relief is given immediately, if applied according to directions. It has been rightly named, for certainly it is worth its weight in gold. DIRECTIONS. For \ Old Sores, Fever Sores, and White Swelling.— First, and once a day, thoroughly cleanse with castile soap, and as soon as dry make a plaster of this Oint- ment and apply over diseased part. Keep well bandaged and warm. After a few weeks if the sore does not dry up fast enough, bathe less frequently. The patient should not neglect to take a dose of our Liver Pills twice a week. This Ointment has cured many bad cases. For Catarrh or Hay Fever.— Make a swab by wrapping yarn or cotton cloth around the end of a stick. The Ointment should then be warmed to the consistency of cream. Smear the swab with the Oint- ment and work it up the nostrils. Snuff it up the nasal passages as far as possible. If it is worked clear through it will be tasted in the mouth. This should be repeated twice a day \mtil a cure is effected. For Scald Head or King Worm or the Scalp.— Use the Ointment freely twice a day, rubbing in thoroughly, after first wash- ing the head with castile soap and warm water. For Croup, Swollen Tonsils, or Diph- theria.— Take about half a teaspoonful of the Ointment and lay it back on the tongue, letting it dissolve; after a few minutes re- peat with smaller doses, as the case may require Also rub it in externally in a thorough manner every half hour in bad cases, applying a plaster of the Ointment between the rubbings, and bind it on with a flannel cloth to protect the parts from the atmosphere. Keep the feet warm, and treat thoroughly until the mucus loosens in the throat. For Burns or Frosted Parts.— Spread the Ointment freely on a soft cloth and ap- ply as soon as possible, and re-apply two or three times a day until a new skin is formed. It extracts the lire or frost in ten to thirty minutes, if applied soon after the accident occurs. It never fails, and if applied with 'sufficient quantity and care to keep all the air excluded, will leave no scar or contrac- tion of the skin. For Felons.— This Ointment will effect- ually cure a Felon if applied when the sore- ness first appears, and often when far ad- vanced. When the Felon has too far ad- vanced to be scattered, it will moderate the pain and hasten suppuration. Spread the Ointment on cloth and keep it applied to the part affected. It has been well tested on Felons and has proved to be effectual. For Colds.— When you realize that you are taking cold, from a negative condition 10 WAKEFIELD'S GUIDE TO HEALTH. of the system, and cannot bear a breath of air without sneezing, rub the Ointment on the sensitive exposed parts, as back of the ears, on the temples, neck and sides of the nose; also, on inside of the nostrils; all of which will be found to be a great protection. For Chapped Hands.— When the hands are much chapped the Ointment should be applied every night, and a pair of old gloves may be worn to prevent soiling the bed clothes. If this is done regularly you will keep the hands soft and smooth in the cold- est weather. The hands should be washed in warm water and thoroughly dried before applying the Ointment. For Erysipelas.— Spread a plaster oi this Ointment on a soft cloth and apply to the affected part ; or, if convenient, apply a light bandage and protect it from the at- mosphere, without keeping it too warm. Dress the parts affected twice a day. It is very thorough in relieving poisonous and inflammatory action. For Sore Throat and a Throat Cough. — With a pocket knife place a lump of the Ointment the size of a bean back on the tongue and let it gradually moisten the parts, and rub it in well on the outer surface. For Neuralgia.— Bathe immediately over the part affected and cover with a woolen cloth. It has been thoroughly test- ed and proves a never-failing remedy. For Torpidity in the region of the liver, stomach, and bowels, rub the Ointment thoroughly into the weak part twice a day for a few days. For Rheumatism.— Bathe freely until the pain has entirely disappeared. Then apply morning and evening for 4 or 5 days. For Cuts, Bruises, Chapped Face or Lips, or Poisions, apply as often as the case may require. For Sprained Wrist or Ankle.— Apply by thin plaster and bandage with, flannel. For Piles.— This Ointment hj very suc- cessful in curing Piles. Apply twice a flay. TESTIMONIALS- best IN EXISTENCE. Sandersville, Ga., Jan. 4, 1893. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— this is to certify that I have used your Golden Ointment with splendid success in case of Piles, Fistula, and Skin Diseases, and believe it to be the best ointment now in existence for the above diseases. I have tried many others, but found them humbugs. Please publish this for the benefit of suffering humanity. P. H. SHEPPARD. A HOUSEHOLD REMEDY. Taintor, la., Jan. 6, 1893. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I have been using your Golden Ointment for twenty years, and find it a household remedy for all it is recommended. My wife has found great relief from Catarrh by using it. S. S. NEEDHAM. CURED OLD SORES OF MANY YEARS' STANDING. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I am a traveling salesman for D Appleton & Co. I had an old sore of 10 years' standing on my leg, for which I had in that time failed to find a remedy. I procured a bottle of your Golden Ointmgnt, and finding some improvement obtained a dozen bottles, which permanent- ly cured the sore. I recommended the Oint- ment to the master mechanic at Ft. Wayne, Ind., of the Wabash Railroad, who had an old sore of 20 years' standing, and had spent $200 without relief. He has now been using it for several months and is rapidly im- proving. CHAS. H. CHAFFEE. DOCTOR RECOMMENDS FOR 8Q3ETHRQAT. Olympia, Wash., June 7, 1891. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Please send me a dozen bottles of your Golden Ointment, as we cannot be without it. We use it so much for Sore Throat, and also for children hav- ing Colds. It is the best salve I ever tried. The minute my husband feels his throat trouble coming on he takes some Golden Ointment inwardly and externally rubs his neck, when he goes on without further trouble. Once we were without it, when his neck began to swell inside; nothing did any good until I sent for a bottle of the Ointment, and the doctor, besides, said to use it and never be without it. MRS. EILERT HEYE. CORNS VANISH. Fincastle, Ky., March 27, 1892. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— My mother has been afflicted with corns ever since I can remember. One bottle of your Golden Oint- ment has taken them off. She says she can- not speak too favorably of it. R. B. KINCAID. CAKED BREAST. Livonia, Mo. July 4, 1878. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Your Golden Ointment cured three cases of caked breast, my wife being one of them. It gave her immediate and permanent relief. For Cuts or Old Sores it is the best remedy I have ever seen tried ; its merits need only to be known to give it a large sale. JOS. MARTIN. WaKE^IELD'S guide to health. 11 WAKEFIELD'S Wine Bitte THIS medicine has a pre-eminent power as a Strengthening Tonic and as an alter- ative and blood-purifying remedy. It gives Tone, Energy, and Vigor to the Digestive Organs, Renews the Blood, Increases the Appetite, Removes Old, Long-Standing Headaches, Acts as a Gentle Laxative, Breaks up a Costive Habit, Cures Dyspepsia, Boils, and Sores by Thoroughly Cleansing the Blood, and will soon give renewed vigor to the whole physical system. DIRECTIONS. Take about a tablespoonfull three times a day, a short time before meals. Continue its use regularly until a bottle or more is used. If this medicine should appear to burn the stomach, or in any way disagree with its acute sensibilities, it should be taken immediately after eating, or at the middle of the meal if preferred, and it will not then disagree. If this dose fails to gently loosen the bowels after using several days, increase the size of the dose— some persons require more than others. The proper dose is that which will produce one thorough and slightly fluid evacuation each day It is quite impossible to cleanse the blood or even to long retain good health and cheerful feelings with the bowels per- petually in a costive state Persons in that condition will receive prompt and lasting benefit from the use of these Bitters. Diseases that come on slowly, and gradu- ly enfeeble the organs on which they locate, usually have to be relieved by a like slow process, and the debilitated organs grad- ually strengthened up again. The diseases to which Wine Bitters apply are mostly chronic and debilitated cases, and the patient must not expect too much effect for the first week, but persevere in their use regularly several weeks, keeping the bowels rather active, and constantly guarding the diet at the same time. This medicine increases the appetite as it stimu- lates the action of the stomach, and some- times induces the patient to eat too much; but the patient should remember that the stomach must not be burdened with food until it gains more permanent strength, and in cleansing the blood you will succeed much oetter and sooner by keeping your- self on a scanty diet. Bread or biscuit made of unbolted flour is much better for all chronic invalids than that made of fine flour. Avoid very sweet, greasy, and high- ly-seasoned food Dyspeptics should avoid raw fruit and eating to fullness; well cooked food may De eaten freely. Dyspepsia i.< often caused by continually overloading th( stomach for a length of time, until finally i cannot bear half a iineal without producing uneasiness, and burning and fermentation or acidity. In such cases the stomach, like a worked down animal, requires rest, which it cannot get while loaded. Such patients should go hungry for a week or two and give nature a chance to recuperate the weakened organs. Let the food be plain. If half a meal sets badly, eat one-fourth of a meal only, until your stomach will bear a larger quantity. Take a good deal of out-door air and light exercise ; keep the mind cheerful by social habits and light amusements; go to rest early, and walk out early in the bracing morning air ; keep your feet warm and dry, and avoid strong coffee and strong drink. For Sour Stomach drink freely of cold water, with a little soda dissolved in it, to 12 WAKEFIELD'S GUIDE TO HEALTH. reduce and destroy the acid already gene- rated, that it may not irritate the stomach or destroy the gastric juices. This course will carry you through with less injury than by taking strong alkali. The next following meal should be but one-fourth the usual quantity, and taken with a little Bitters, and the diet should be constantly guarded for several days. Acidity of the stomach decom- poses the gastric juices, so necessary to digestion, irritates the stomach, and con- stipates the bowels How necessary, then, that you use proper self-denial in regard to diet while treating for dyspepsia and sour stomach. Dull Headache and numbness of the limbs are generally caused by a torpid action of the digestive organs, which may be soon overcome by the use of Wakefield's Wine Bitters. TESTIMONIALS. HELPED MORE THAN ANY OTHER MEDICINE. Add, Ky., Jan. 7, 1893. Dr. C. WakeQeld & Co.— I hereby take pleasure in stating that I am afflicted with Lung and Stomach trouble, for which I have been using your Wine Bitters. So far I have used several bottles and find that they have helped me more than any medicine I have ever used. It seems that everybody around here who has ever used the Bitters says the same thing of it. I shall continue the use of it. THOS. L. STEPHENS. CURES SICK-HEADACHE. Lowell, Ind. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I used freely of the Strengthening Wine Bitters and found them an invaluable remedy for Sick-Head- ache.

Wakefield & Co.— I have been using your Wine Bitters and find them excellent. I had Dyspepsia for a long time and tried, I thought, everything, and had made up my mind I had to go to that land where pain would be no more. But, thank God, Mr. Dickerson, my druggist, recommended Wine Bitters, and now I feel like a new man. I am entirely well. I feel safe in recommending your Wine Bitters. JOHN RIRT. BEST EVER KNOWN. McLeansboro. 111., August 22, 1870. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I have been sell- ing and using your medicines for the last ten years, and can say that there is no medicine known that stands higher than yours.

Wakefield & Co.— My children have been afflicted with a blood disorder for near- ly a year, from which they were continually breaking out with sores. I gave them four bottles of your Wine Bitters, and am happy to state that they are cured. J. W. RANKIN. SICK-HEADACHE. Menard. 111. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Your Bitters alone cured me of Sick-Headache, with which I had been much afflicted. When I feel the symptoms coming on, I commence on the Bitters, and it alwavs drives it off. WALTER TURNER. NERVOUS DEBILITY. Red Rock, Iowa. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co. — Your medicines give good satisfaction here. From my own experience I know your Wine Bitters to be an excellent remedy for Nervous De- bility. I have used two or three bottles for that affection and I think I am quite clear of that malady. M. D. WILLIAMS. WAKEFIELD'S GUIDE TO HEALTH 13 WAKEFIELD'S Liver Pills. ILD purgatives are required in almost every disease, while the timely use of cathartics will invariably ward off a bilious attack, thereby saving the patient from a severe spell of sickness. Wakefield's Liver Pills are purely vegetable and act with promptness on the Liver, Kidneys, Stomach, and Bowels, with- out griping. They contain the active remedial principles of their various ingredi- ents, extracted and highly concentrated, and are scientifically compounded in a man- ner which insures certainty and uniformity of medicinal effect. They have no supe- rior for Liver and Kidney Troubles, Costiveness, Jaundice, Sick-Headache, Gout, and all Bilious Affections. These pills are Sugar-coated, and are also put up in small size for the convenience of those who cannot easily swallow a larger pill. They have the same strength in a concentrated form, will not gripe or sicken, and are just as effective. In fact there is not a pill in the market to-day that acts more mildly, and yet so effectually accomplishes its purpose. DIRECTIONS. The average dose for an adult, in all chronic or lingering diseases, is one pill every night before retiring to bed. Some require one at night and one in the morn- ing. The constitutions of people are so different that some require two or three times as many as others. The proper amount is that which will insure one action of the bowels daily, and slightly increase the quantity and fluency of that action, and follow up the treatment for some time- When a decided improvement is produced take less at a dose, and thus gradually taper off, as the action of the system be- comes increased, so as to resist the dis- ease without their use. This treatment applies to Dyspepsia Liver Complaint, Jaundice, Nervous Debil ity, Scrofula, Salt Rheum, Erysipelas Nervous Headache, Piles, and Rheumatism In Dropsy give one pill three times a day In Bilious attacks two to three pills, or suf- ficient to thoroughly evacuate the bowels. Let the diet be plain and nourishing; avoid fat meals and greasy food, and avoid eating to excess while taking these pills. Be particular that the bowels are kept suf- ficiently loose, and keep the body comfort- able with sufficient clothing. In chronic diseases take as much exercise in the open air as circumstances will admit. Where the Small Liver Pills are used take two to five as the case may require. Constipation, or Costiveness, should receive prompt treatment, before it induces any serious chronic derangement, which it so frequently does. The absorbing capac- ity of the intestines is such that matter which should be carried off is dissolved, taken up by the blood, and, seeking some other outlet, disorders the kidneys, liver, stomach, and bowels. It is also the cause of skin eruptions and piles. A few doses of Wakefield's Liver Pills will gently stimu- late the bowels to healthly action, and cleanse the blood of scrofulous diseases. Sick-Headache is generally the distress- ing result of constipation. Bilious and Congestive Headaches are also symptoms of a disordered condition of the digestive organs, which the use of Wakefield's Liver Pills will effectually cure. Liver Diseases are usually the result of a congested state cf the blood vessels of the u 1LUNOJ WAKEFIELD'S GUIDE TO HEALTH. USfeARY liver, which tend to produce inflammation in that important organ. By reason of a torpid liver the blood is hut imperfectly purified, the skin becomes yellow, and the nights are sleepless or disturbed by dreams. The stomach participates in the general disorder. Prompt use of Wakefield's Liver Pills will stimulate the liver to a healthy action. The earlier the attention the more speedy the cure. TESTIMONIALS. AFTER $50 HAD BEEN SPENT. Bushnell, 111., May 8, 1891. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— My wife was sick for seven months with stomach trouble. I had five of the best doctors in Bushnell to attend her, but it seemed as if they were doing her no good. I saw your Liver Pill advertisement, and seeing they suited her case, got a box. They took hold right away, and my wife is well and hearty to-day. My doctors' bill was $50, and one of your 2o- cent boxes of Liver Pills cured her. WM. C. SWAYZE. USED BY A FORMER PRACTITIONER. Bloomington, 111., July 1, 1891. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Over 40 years ago I became acquainted with Wakefield's Family Medicines and became convinced of their unequaled usefulness in this cli- mate. Since that time, as a medical prac- titioner for some years, I found nothing their superior, and since abandoning the profession I have had good reason to con- tinue their use. Especially do I consider the Liver Pills as nearest a panacea for all biliary derangements of any medicine yet discovered. Surely no one is properly pre- pared for the vicissitudes of ill-health among us without them. Respectfully, H. D. WHITCOMB. PHYSICIANS GAVE NO RELIEF. Dover. Utah, Jan. 1, 1888. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Enclosed find $1, for which forward Liver Pills and Golden Ointment. During the past year I have tried several remedies and consulted two prominent physicians, but found no relief for my Kidney Trouble, until I tried your Liver Pills, when the relief was magical. In the future I shall always keep a supply of your most efficacious Pills on hand. I could not get your Pills here, so wrote to you. I would remind you that I had the pleasure of introducing your remedies in this section of Utah when superintendent of the Sterling Co-operative Co. Yours '-ery trulv. MASTERTON CLARKE.

I think them the best pills I evei took. JOHN W. WRIGHT. AN ENTIRE CURE WAS EFFECTED. Lawrenceville, 111. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Too much can- not be said in praise of your Liver Pills. I was severely attacked with pain in my liver and kidneys, from which 1 could get no relief until I was induced to try your Liver Pills, and by following directions an entire cure was effected. T. J. RAY. WAITING FOR THEM. Venice, N. Y. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— There are several waiting for your Liver Pills; they give great satisfaction, there being an unusual number of cases of torpidity of the liver, and in every case where your Pills have been used, they meet the case exactly. REV. S. D. ROSS. GOOD AS GGLD. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— We would say your Cough Syrup and Liver Pills are par excellence in this neighborhood. SHIGLEY & LUTES. BROUGHT OUT GF BED. Springfield, 111. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— My wife had been ailing for eight or nine months, and her health declined until she was compelled to keep her bed, when she commenced using your Liver Pills.

IB WAKEFIELD'S PAIN CURB. THIS is a favorite remedy with all who have used it for Deep-Seated Pains, Rheumatism, Neuralgia, Cramps, Lameness, etc. It is very penetrat- ing and stimulating, and will reach deep- seated pain when applied thoroughly. It is free from any greasy or coloring sub- stance, and will not soil or stain the clothes. In case of severe Griping Pains in the Stomach or Bowels, a small quan- tity taken internally gives instant relief. Lancaster, Wis., Feb. 3, 1879. Dr. C. Wakefield &Co. — Some time ago my boy was kicked by a horse. It swelled rapidly and was very painful We applied the Pain Cure, and the next day he was all right and at work. A man sprained his leg, sent for a bottle, applied it, and it cured him. JACOB LONG. Lincolnville, Kas., Jan. 8, 1879. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Your Pain Cure saved a horse for me. After trying all the different medicines we could think of, with- out doing any good, we turned him out to die. It finally occurred to us to try Pain Cure, which we did, and it cured him. DANIEL SILL. wakefield's Eye Salve. H REMEDY unsurpassed for Sore, In- flamed, and Weak Eyes, Sore Lips, and for removing Proud Flesh from Sores and Ulcers. Need we inform you, reader, that the eye is one of the most sensitive parts of the body? Reflect for a moment, how much, how continuously the eye is in use. Unless closed in slumber it is doing active duty day and night. Therefore when those useful members are Inflamed, Sore, or Weak, they demand, and should be given, immediate attention and relief It has been demonstrated that nothing is so universally satisfactory in the cure of Weak, Inflamed, or Granulated Sore Eyes as Wakefield's Eye Salve. It is very soothing and cleansing, and will remove Proud Flesfc from Ugly Sores, Wounds, and Ulcers, creating a healthy healing process without the severe pain usually caused by other remedies. Beecher City, 111. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I do certify that my daughter, eleven years old, has been afflicted with Sore Eyes since she was two years old. I tried several physicians, but none could do her good. I concluded to try your Eye Salve, and commenced the use of it in the summer, and in three months they were entirely cured, her eyes now being per- fectly well. J. P. NELSON. New Harmony, Ind. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Please send us six dozen boxes of Wakefield's Eye Salve. It is taking the place of all other eye salves here. THRALL & MUMFORD. Iroquois, 111. Dr. C.

Wakefield & Co.— Enclosed please find the money for another box of your Eye Salve. It is the only thing I have found that helps my eyes. MISS M. V AUGEAN. Morse, Iowa. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Your Eye Salve was recommended for my Sore Eyes. I pro- cured one box, and after three or four ap- plications my eyes were perfectly cured. I hereby recommend it. GEORGE COOK. Mullen, Neb. Dr C. Wakefield & Co.— I had weak and Sore Eyes so bad that I could not work. Your Eye Salve cured them; have had no trouble with them since. J. A. WICKHAM. WAKEFIELD'S Worm Destroyer.

They are pleasant to take, taste like can- dy, and made in the shape of lozenges. Lebanon, Iowa. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— My grandchildren have used your Worm Lozenges, and they carried off about twenty of one kind and one hundred of another kind of worms. I think it the best worm remedy in use. G. B. HUMPHREY 16 WAKEFIELD'S GUfDE TO HEALTH. WAKEFIELD'S Nerve^Bone Liniment THIS is a very mild and soothing Lin- iment, and very healing. For Caked Breasts it has no superior.

MRS. LUCY PHILLIPS. WAKEFIELD'S Egyptian Liniment. THIS is one of the most stimulating and penetrating Oil Liiiments ever placed on the market, and is used with great success as a Pain Killer. For Rheumatism, Cramps, Numbness of the Flesh, Cold Skin, Stiff Joints, Earache, Backache, Contracted Lead- ers, etc., nothing is more effective than Wakefield's Egyptian Liniment. For Horses. — It is used with equal suc- cess on Horses in curing Swellings, Sprains, Bruises, Spavin, Sweeney, etc. It is as strong as horseflesh will hear without irritation, and a bottle of should be in every stable. Ayersville, Mo. Dr. C Wakefield & Co.— I was induced to use your Egyptian Liniment for a kick on the stifle joint of my horse, and it proved an effectual cure, leaving no blemish. It is the best I ever used. H. A. GARFIELD. Cana, Ind. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I had my ankle badly injured by the falling of a bent at the raising of a barn. I tried everything that could be heard of, without benefit. In reading your almanac I saw a certificate of your Egyptian Liniment curing a case similar to mine. So I sent ten miles and procured a bottle. This one bottle has almost entirely cured me. One bottle more will do it completely. WM. C. LEWIS. WAKEFIELD'S FEVER SPECIFIC. BN Infallible remedy for Ague, Chills & Fever, Dumb Ague, Lung Fever, etc. This well-known and long-es- tablished remedy continues to mani- fest its sovereign power over that much dreaded and nerve-prostrating disease, Ague and Fever. It also cures, with re- markable facility, Bilious Fever, Dumb Ague, Chills and Fever, and most other nervous and spasmodic diseases. For Malarial Diseases there is nothing bet- ter. This remedy is unequaled for low- ering bodily temperature in all febrile diseases. Mt. Moriah, Mo., Oct. 18, 1887. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— This is to certify that James Prater, a resident of this place, who has been a subject of Ague for the past four years, was cured permanently by the use of Wakefield's Fever Specific. Mr. Prater tried almost everything that is recommended for that disease. Physicians had given him up. There is no one to-day louder in praise of Wakefield's Medicines than James Prater. J. H. MEYER. Corsicana, Mo. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Your Fever Specific is, undoubtedly, the best medicine I ever sold. I warranted every bottle, and it gave satisfaction in every case. W. I. I. MORROW. Newbury, Mo. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I can say that your Fever Specific has not failed, in a single instance, of effecting a permanent cure of the Chills and Fever. G. W. BEHYMER. Kingston, Iowa. Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I sold 90 bottles of your Fever Specific last fall, and every bottle produced a cure— some as high as four. ALVIN BARNES. WAKEFIELD'S EGYPTIAN SALVE.
