E. church, Johnstown, Pa., says: "Soon
after the great flood, at a time when di
arrhoea was quite prevalent, I received a
box of six dozen Chamberlain's CoMc.
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy . A s soon
as it became known that I had the medi
cine for free distribution, there began a
great run on it, which continued until it
was about all gone. Eyery one, so far as
I heard from them, testified to its virtues,
declaring it the best medicine for the
purpose they had ever used. Those who
got it shared it around with their neigh
bors, so that I am confident it was pro
ductive of great good. We used some of
it ourselves and found it not only an ex
cellent medicine for diarrhoea, but for
nil kinds of pain and une6inees in the
stomach and bowels. It has been regard
el as ths best medicine known here for
the diseases it is recommended. For sale

people were treated to a grand amend

bp Prof. Odell from Lincoln who had

ladies near him andjstruck the speaker and
children sitting close at his feet This is
a disgrace and shame upon the name of

the misslee intended for those noble de
