"Ten Reasons Why
You Should Send For Brooks
1. It is absolutely the only Appliance
of-' tho kin3 on the markot today, and in
it are embodied tho principles that inven
tors bave sought after for years.
2. The Appllanco for retaining the rup
ture cannot tics thrown out of position.
3.' Being Jin air cushion of soft rubber
it clings closely to tho body, yet never
blisters or causes irritation.
4. Unlike the ordinary so-called pads,
used in other trusses, it is riot cumber
some or ungalriiy.
5. It is dmaii , soft and- pliable, and
positively dannot bo detected -through the
clothing. . '.'
6. Tlite soft, pliable bands holding the
Appliance do not givo ono the unpleasant
sensation of wearing a harness.
7. There is nothing about it to get
foul, and when it becomes soiled it can
be washed without injuring it in tho least.
.8. There are no;-metal spring's in the
Appllanco to torture one by cutting and
bruising tho flesh,.
9.. All of tho material. of which- the Ap
pliances are made is of tho very best that
money can biy, making it a durable and
safe Appliance to wear.
10. Wc guarantee your comfort at all
times and In all positions, and sell every
