My niece, Emetine Hawley, was,
taken with spitting blood, and bhe
became very much alarmed, fearing'
that dreaded disease, Consumption.
She tried nearly all kinds of medi
cine but nothing did her any good.
Finally she took German Syrup nud
she told me it did her more good
than anything she ever tried. It
stopped the blood, gave her strength
and ease, and a good appetite. I
had it from her own lips. Mrs.
Mary A. Stacey, Trumbull, Conn.
Honor to German Syrup.
