attack of diarrhoea," says Mrs. Alice

again, and for six long years I have suf
fered more misery and iinony than lean
tell. It was worse than death. M
husband spent hundreds of dollars for
physicians' prescriptions and treatment
without anvil. ' Finally we moved to
Bosque county, our present home, and
one day I happened to see an advertise
ment of Chamberlain's Colic Cholera and
Diarrhoea, Remedy with a testimonial of
a man who had been cured by it. The
case was so similar to my own that I
concluded to try the remedy. The result
was wonderful. I could hardly realize
that I was well again, or believe it could
be so after having suffered so long, but
that one bottle of medicine, costing but a
