Thirty Years of Suffering.

and I thought I was past being cured , " says
John S. Halloway , of French Camp , Miss.

suffered so much that I had given up all hope
of recovery. I was so feeble from the effects
of the diarrhoea that I could do no kind of la
bor , could not even travel , but by accident I
was permitted to find a bottle of Chamber
lain's Colic , Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy ,
and after taking several bottles I am entirely
cured of that trouble. I am so pleased with
the result that I am anxious that it be in reach
of all who suffer as I have. " For sale by Mc
