James M. McKelvy Post G. A. R,
of St. Cloud, Minnesota, contains ono
such, Milton F. Sweet No man stands
higher in the community than does he
and through his strict integrity andi
honesty of conviction he has won the)
respect of all who know him. Mr.,
Sweet has for many years been a resi
dent of Minnesota, and for the past ten,
years has resided in this city, wherei
he is engaged in the manufacture of.

During the war Mr. Sweet contracted
heart disease, which was accompanied
by excessive nervousness. As age In
creased his symptoms grew worse nnd
many were tho remedies resorted to
by him without the slightest relief.
We will let Mr. Sweet tell tho story
In his own words:
"Six months ago, at tho suggestion
of a comrade, who had been benefited
by Dr. WilllamB' Pink Pills. I began'
tneir use, ana 1 very cneerruny state
that they havo invigorated and built
ur my nervous system in a wonderful
way. They havo done me a world of
cood and I have been greatly benefit-,
ed by their use, where everything else
I took failed to give me the relief X
sought for. I havo recommended'
them to a large number of my old!
comrades and It Is a pleasuro for mo
to do so, for I feel that the manufact
urers are deserving of any good that;
I can do them in Baying a good word'
for their product, in return for tho
good they have done me. I will gladly
recommend these pills to any one writ-,
Ing me if they doubt tho genulncss of.
When Interviewed, Mr. Sweet felt so,
grateful for tho good that he had re-'
eclved through Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills that he did not have the slightest
hesitancy in going on record. His
word Is considered Mb bond by all who
know him throughout this section. Mr.
Bweet is not the only one In Stearns
County who is using this celebrated
medicine and with equally good re
sults. Subscribed and sworn to before mo
chls 12th day of June, 1896.
