It was just an ordinary scrap of wrapping
paper , but it saved her life. She was in the
last stages of consumption , told by physicians
that she was incurable and could live but a
short time ; she weighed less than seventy
pounds. On a piece of wrapping paper she
read of Dr. King's New Discovery , and got a
sample bottle ; it helped her , she bought a
large bottle. It helped her more , bought an
other and grew better fast , continued Its use
asd is now strong , healthy , rosy , plump , weigh
ing 140 pounds. For fuller particulars send
stamp to W. H. Cole , Druggist , Fort Smith.
