,After 2,000 experiments, I .havo
learned how to cure Rheumatism. Not
to turn bony joints Into flesh again;
that Is Impossible. But I can cure the
disease always, at any stage, and for
ever. , I ask for no money. Simply write
me a' postal and I will send you an or
der 6n your nearest druggist for six
bottled of Dr. Shoop's Rheumatic Cure,
for every druggist keeps it. Use it
for a mpnth, and if it does what I
claim pay your druggist $5.50 for it. If
it doesn't I will pay him myself.
I have no samples. Any medicine
that can affect Rheumatism with but
a few doses must be drugged to the
Verge of danger. I use no such drugs.
It is folly to take them. You must get
the disease out of the blood.
My remedy does that, oven in the
most difficult, obstinate cases. No
matter how impossible this seems to
you, I know it and I take the risk. I
have cured tens of thousands of cases
in this way, and my records show that
39 out of 40 who get those six bottles
pay, and pay gladly.. I havo learned
that people in general are honest with
a physician who cures them. That is
all I ask. If I fail I don't expect a
penny from you.
Simply write me a postal card or
letter. Let me send, you an order for
the medicine. Take it for a month,
for it won't harm you anyway If it
cures, pay $5.50. I leave that entirely
to you. I will mail you a book that
tells how I do "it.. Address Dr. Shoop,

gentlemen remember, so long ago as
1896? If anything in all the history
of the world ever equalled the bitter
ness and vituperation that they em
ployed at that time the historians have
failed to record it. Men with world
wide reputations as educators and
scholars, bankers of unsullied reputa

word of scandal had never before been
uttered, were pursued as if they were
Wild beasts of the jungle. Their pri

two instances they were harried until
they sank into early graves. Why?
Because they took a position . on a
strictly scientific ques.tion .that plutoc
racy thought was inimical to its in
terests. The men who engaged in that are

the treaty of peace was signed with
the Indians at Chicago in 1896 Col.
Bryan went out of the cattle business
and became one of the bonanza farm
ers of the west. He can now sit on
his back stopp, as the rear veranda
is called in America, and look over
his fields of corn stretching farther
'than eye can reach in every direction.
As a result of his early training on the
plains, where he spent months at a
time without an opportunity of talk-,
ing to ariother human being, the candi
date for president (the article was pub
lished in the 1900 campaign) is ex
tremely taciturn and can hardly be per
suaded to express an opinion on the
issues of campaign. He is the author
of a book of adventure called 'The
First Battle in which some of his
encounters with the Indians of the
Tammany and other tribes are de
scribed at length.

If . there, is . any doubt about mak
ing brain power by the use of certain
food, the doubter should make the fol
lowing experiment. , t '
Helen Frances Huntington of Gaines
ville, Ga., says: ."Just a word of com
mendation concerning Grape-Nuts
which I have found to be the most
wholesome, nourishing and appetizing,
food that has ever come to my knowl
edge. I am not a dyspeptic, but being con
stantly engaged in severe brain work I
found that I did not thrive on ordinary
diet; even a moderate dinner dulled my
brain so as to be practically incapable
of critical work. I tried meat-juice,
peptonoids, the, two meal system of
light breakfast and no supper which
brought on nervous depletion and
sleeplessness, so I resorted to one and
another of the various health-foods
which all seemed alike tasteless and
valueless as a brain food, until quite
by chance, I had a dish of Grape-Nuts
food served as a dessert. I liked it
so well that. I began to use it daily,
for supper four teaspoonf uls in a saucer
of hot milk, eaten before it dissolves to
This point should be remembered as,
after a certain time, evaporation seems
to affect the sweet nutty flavor ofthe
food as in the case of certain fine-flavored
The result In my case was simply as
tonishing, I had no desire whatever
for sweet pastry s, meats, or in fact
anything else; and my brain was c.3
clear and active at night as on awaking
from a long, refreshing sleep.
The peculiar advantage about Grape
Nuts food is that it supplies the nutri
tive qualities of a varied diet without
the bad results of heavy eating. I
cheerfully recommend its use to all
brain workers, if not as an exclusive
diet, certainly for the last meal of
the day. I always take it with me
when traveling, which saves a deal of
annoyance and discomfort."
