TEN REASONS WHY
You' Should Send fur Ilrook Ituplure
1. It is absolutely tho only Appllanco
of the kind on tho markot today, and
n It aro embodied tho principles that
Inventors havo sought after for yearn.
.'.In a Appllanco for retaining tho
rupturo can not bo thrown out of posi
tion. 8. Being an air cufthlon of soft rub
ber It clings closely to tho body, yet
never blisters or causes irritation.
A. Unlike the ordinary so-called pads,
used In other trussos, it is not cumber
some or ungainly.
G. It Is small, soft and pllablu, and
positively can not be detocted through
0. The soft, pliable hands holding tho
Appllanco do not glvo ono tho unpleas
ant sensation of wearing a harness.
7. Thore in nothing about It to got
foul, and when It becomes soiled It can
bb washed without Injuring It in tho
8. Thoro aro no metal springs In tho
Appliance to torturo ono by cutting and
bruising tho flesh.
0. All of the material of which tho
Appliances aro made is of tho very best
that money can buy, making it a dur
able and safe Appllanco 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 tho public, and
my prices are so reasonable, my terms
so fair, that there certainly should be
no Jiesituncy in sending free coupon to
day. Pennsylvania Man Thankful
Mr. C. E. Brooks, Marshall, Mich.
Dear Sir: Perhaps it will Interest
you to know that I have been ruptured
six years and havo always had troublo
with It till I got your Appliance. It Is
very easy to wear, fits neat and snug,
and Jh not In the way at any time, day
or night. In fact,
at times I did not
know I had it on;
it Just adapted it
self to tho fthnpo
of tho body and
seemed to bo a
part of tho body,
us It clung to the
spot, no matter
what position I
It would bo a
to the unfortunate
who suffer from
runture if all could
procure the Brooks Rupture Appliance
and wear It. They would certainly
never regret it.
My rupturo 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 frlonds or
strangers. I am, yours very tinccrol,
