A Genuine Rupture Cure
Sent On Trial To Prove It
- Don't Wear A Truss Any Longer
After Thirty Years Experience I Have Produced An Appliance for Men, Women
and -children 1 hat Actually Cures Rupture
ARE YOU RUPTURED!
If so, the BROOKS APPLIANCE is
made for You; You and all other Men,
Women and Children who are sufferers
from this annoying and dangerous
trouble. That truss you have been
weiirlng one of many you have trlcd-r-chafed
and irritated you and was worse
than nothing. It had springs and pads
and harness and straps and Ilxlngs
galore and was continually getting out
of shape slipping down or working up
and always needing attention. Then,
there were salves and washes and
ointments to make the case worse and
harder to bear. I want to say that you
will And none of these annoyances and
vexations in the BROOKS APPLI
ANCE. At least they arc reduced to a
minimum. Tills APPLIANCE was made
with a view to eliminate, to do away
with, just such trouble. I would have
been foolish to work half a lifetime,
thinking out and perfecting a tiling
that had no advantage or was not bet
ter than scores of other inventions
upon the market. In my APPLIANCE
you will And the old objectionable
features LEFT OUT. You will find it
easy to wear. You will scarcely re
alize you are weai'irig it. There is no
binding, drawing and slipping out of
place. It does its work effectively and
with comfort to the wearer. I want
you to read my book in which I have
taken pains to 'rive full particulars
about it. Then, there are a few letters
printed in it selected at random from
among hundreds written by men and
women who have been cured You jean
write those folks and see -Jiat tney
say. Ifl vero you I would' de to this
matter without waiting. Y"i can put
off some things without ruiv.lng much'
risk, but a rupture is a dangerous
proposition to neglect. A rupture is
not only bad and serious of itself, but
it leads to things infinitely worse. Fill

Others Failed But
The Appliance Cured
C. E. Brooks,
Your Appliance did all you claim for
the little boy and more, for It cured
him sound and well. We let him wear
it for about a year In all, although
it cured him 3 months after he had
begun to wear it. We had tried sev
eral other remedies and got no relief,
and I shall certainly recommend It to
friends, for we surely owe it to you.

Pennsylvania Man Thankful
Mr. C. E. Brooks,
uPierlmps lt wIn Interest you to know
that I havo been ruptured six years
and have always had trouble with It
till I got your Appliance. It is very
easy to wear, fits neat and snug, and
Is not in the way at any time, day or
night. Tn fact, at times I did not know
I had it on: it Just adapted Itself to
the shape of the body and seemed to
be a part of the body, as it clung to
the spot, no matter what position I was
It would be a veritable God-send to
the unfortunates who suffer from rup
ture if all could procure the Brooks
Rupture Aollance and wear it. They
would certainly never regret it.
My rupture is now all healed up and
nothing ever did it but your Appliance.
Whenever tho opportunity presents it
self I will say a good word for your
Appliance, and also tho honorable way
in which you deal with ruptured peo
ple. It Is a pleasure to recommend a
good thing among your friends or
strangers. I am,
Yours very sincerely,
nn . JAMES A. BRITTON.
80 Spring St., Bethlehem, Pa.
I send my Appliance on trial to prove
what I say is true. You are to be
the Judge. Fill out free coupon below

Ten Reasons Why
You .Should Send For Ilrookn'
1. It Is absolutely the only Appli
anco of tho kind on tho market today,
and in it aro embodied tho principles
that inventors havo sought after for
2. The Applianco for retaining th'o
rupturo cannot bo thrown out of posi
tion. 3. Being an air cushion of soft rub
ber it clings closely to tho body, yet
never blisters or causes irritation.
4. Unlike tho ordinary Ho-callod
pads, used In other trusses, it Is not
cumbersome or ungainly.
6. It Ih small, soft and pliable, arid
positively cannot bo detected through
C. Tho soft, pllablo bands holding
tho Appliance do not given ono tho un
pleasant sensation of wearing a har
ness. 7. Thero Is nothing about it to got
foul, and when it becomes soiled It
can bo washed without injuring it In
8. There are no metal springs In
tho Appliance to torture one by cut
ting and bruising tho flesh.
9. All of the material of which tho
Appliances aro made Is of tho very
best that money can buy, making It a.
durable and safe Appliance to wear.
10. My reputation for honesty and
fair dealing is so thoroughly estab
lished by an experience of over thirty
years of dealing with the public, and
my prices are so reasonable, my terms
so fair, that there certainly should bo
no hesitancy In sending free coupon
Cured at the Age of 76
Mr. C. E. Brooks, Marshall, Mich.
I began uhlng your Appliance for tho
cure of rupture (I had a pretty bad
case) I think in May, 1905. On Novem
ber 20, 190B, I quit UBlng It. SInco
that time I have not needed or used it.
I am well of rupture and rank myself
among those cured by tho Brooks Dis
covery, which, considering my age, 70
years, I regard as remarkable.
Very sincerely yours.

Mr. C. E. Brooks,
Dear Sir: I am glad to tell you that
I am now sound and well and can

any better. If it hadn't been for your
Applianco I would never havo been
cured. I am sixty-eight years old and.

you for tho good you aro doing for
