BEWflRE OF IMITATIONS.
HM OSUCAL LIBRAE
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
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
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

WAKEFIELD'S GUIDE TO HEALTH.
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.
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
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
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.

CURED AFTER BEING SO LOW HIS MIND
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.

Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Your Cough Syr';
up saved the life of my child.
MRS. E..G. FRANKLIN.
CURED AFTER A COUNCIL CF DOCTORS
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.

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.
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
MRS. CORA SWEARNGIN.
A SORE ANKLE 25 YEARS ENTIRELY CURED.
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.
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.
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.
Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Your Golden
Ointment is the most certain and speedy
cure for Burns I ever tried.
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.
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.
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
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

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
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.

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.

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'
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.
Fincastle, Ky., March 27, 1892.
Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— My mother has
been afflicted with corns ever since I can

ment has taken them off. She says she can-
not speak too favorably of it.
R. B. KINCAID.
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.
WaKE^IELD'S guide to health.
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.
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.

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,

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.
Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— I used freely of
the Strengthening Wine Bitters and found
them an invaluable remedy for Sick-Head-
ache. For a long time I have suffered more
or. less from that complaint, and your Bit-
ters is the first medicine that ever gave me
much relief. I followed your directions
strictly, and found the medicine to be a
truly wonderful remedy, answering all
your recommendations. P. R. CROSS.

cakes, and are very strengthening. Please

and would like you to forward the order
soon. B. J. LINDSEY.
Great Bend. Minn.
Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— We think you

extensively for headache and all the effects
of slow digestion. We find it the best
article we have ever obtained for those
uses. ■ J. Y. LISTON.
Arlington, Ind.. Jan., 14, 1887.
Dr. C. 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.
BEST EVER KNOWN.

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. Your Wine Bitters is the best rem-
edy for weak and debilitated females that
I have ever known used. D. L. MARTIN.
GOOD FOR THE BLOOD.
Bethlehem, Iowa, October 1, 1878.
Dr. C. 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.
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.
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
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.
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
WAKEFIELD'S GUIDE TO HEALTH.
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.
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.

than she has been for three years.

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

him. JACOB LONG.
Lincolnville, Kas., Jan. 8, 1879.
Dr. C. Wakefield & Co.— Your Pain Cure

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.

Salve. It is the only thing I have found that
helps my eyes. MISS M. V AUGEAN.
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.
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.

All unhealthy children, especially
those having Furred Tongue, Itch-

Abdomen, and Hacking Cough should
be given Wakefield's Worm Destroyer.
They are pleasant to take, taste like can-
dy, and made in the shape of lozenges.
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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
