To the afflicted:
several years ago l discovered a
slight falling and bleeding ol the lower ;
hou el which inci eased and became
very distressing. I made inquiry as
tothe nature of the disease and learned
that I had a somewhat aggravated case
of Hemorrhoids or Piles. Was told of I
several remedies and used them as di
rected, obtaining thereby some tem
porary relief. Not being satisfied with
such slight relief I cast about for a per-
manent cure; when a friend directed
the use of the famous Magnet Pile

from pain followed, and soon a com
