..QILSON'S SORE THROAT CURE.
Good for Tonsi litis.
Office of W. M. LINE, M. D.
Germantown, Neb., Feb. 8, 1904
I have had most excellent results
with Gilson's Sore Throat Cure In dis
eases of the '.hroat and mucous lin
ings. I find its application in tonsi
litis and cases where a false mem
brane exists in th throat, as in
diphtheria, to have an immediate ef
fect, loosening and removing the mem
brane, and thereby at once relieving
this distressing sensation of smother
ing noted in these cases. My clinical
experience with Gilson's Sore Throat
Cure has proved to ms its value and 1
can heartily recommend it to all as a
safe and reliable preparation for the
disease it is recommended.
