testify to thu rnro curntlro properties of
Swift's Spccllln In tl.o truatincnt for
rheumatism , from which 1 had suffered
for fcoyornl years. 1 am again constrained
to testimony to tlio virtue of this
famous nicdicinu in thci treatment of tut *
other and quite a different disea'o.
During my Into visll to tlio North Ivns
stricken dawn with malarial fever , and
nt times "my recovery was extremely
doubtful. At this period of my sickness ,
however , a copy of an Atlanta papur
came to hand in whicli was a certificate
from soinii person who had used with
success Swift's SpcciHe in a .similar care ,
Having a bottle with me , I immediately
commenced taking it , and f am proud to
say that good results followed at onco. I
then procured a few bottles from Boston ,
and continued to take three doses daily
until frccoyored my health perfectly , a
result largely dun to that valuable prcpa

Her health is Rood. For ten years she

permanently lame , her _ abscoi-hos have
healed and her health is good. I have
every reason to believe that she owes her
restoration to the use of S.S. S. , by which
her blood has 'been purillod and she in
vigorated. In all she has taken some
fifteen bottle ? , and is still keeping up its

healing and blood rrrifying properties I
attribute the restoration of my little girl

Illoud Poison.
Three years ago I contracted blood
poison. I took mercury and potash foi
nix months without any benolit. I then
took Swift's Specific , and it soon drove
away every symptom of the disease. I
recommend S."S. S. on every occasion ,
as it is really a boon to humanity , am
every one suflering with blood poison can
take it with great confidence.

I have been afllictcd with rheumatism
over three years. Two years of the time
I could not walk a stcj > could not oven
stand on my feet. My joints were all
swollen and some of them rimuiiig sores.

weeks was walking. I consider that I
am cured of the worse case of rheuma

Wonderful Ellcc-tH From Ono
I have for the past five years been
suffering from what the physicians told
me was malarial poisoning. Have taken
a great deal of medicine for it , many
times going through a regular course as
prescribed for mo , feasting on quinine ,
etc. , but got no relief , i have now taken
one bottle of S. S. S. , and I have no moro
chills and no bad feeling , and am free
from the disease. It has helped my ap
petite greatly and built mo up generally.

s. IEcariiStatement. .
I have been troubled with eczema of
my face for tlio past three years and a
half. My entire face was covered with
it , and it rendered mosocon.spieudu.sthat
it was unpleasant to appear in public. . 1
consulted the ablest physicians in the
city , among others a celebrated specialist
in diseases of the skin , who treated mo
during tlio first winter without the slight
est perceptible benolit. I then tried the
sulphur treatment and various adver
tised medicines with little or no effect. I
visited several springs , including the Hot
Springs of Arkansas , during the succeed
ing two years. At the latter point I
placed myself under treatment of one of
the lending physicians. Although my
general health was greatly improved , the
bpnngs failed to accomplish the object of-
my visit. The eczema , still clung jo mo ,
and was a great source of Inconvciilonea
and discomfort. After returning east ,
fully convinced that I wouldjiudnorcm-
ftdy , an acquaintance , who said that she
herself had been raised trom bed and
cured of scrofula by S. S. S. , so strongly
udvibcd mo to try it that I began , with
little faith on. my own partanulittlo en
couragement from others. I have taken it
lor two or three months , mid the result is
that the disease is practically cured , there
being but slight traces of it left. Swift's
Spceille is certainly a wonderful remedy ,
and I feel very grateful that I ever found
it. 1 boliuvo it will benolll others , and
am ready to answer personally any in
quiries in reference to its efl'oct upon mo.

Three years ago I was alllieted with
thai most horrible of diseases , blood
poison. In vain I sought help from tlio
medical profession , changing doctors two
or three timed , The mercurial remedies
used soon i\ut \ mu on crutches and
brought on untold pain. I could see my-
uolf failing every day. My weight was-
reduced iroin 150 to J17 pounds in six
weeks , I could see no use of living , sit
uated a.s 1 wasr uud was so desperate at
time ; that I felt like taking my own life.
Friends interfered and urged mo to go to
Hot Springs. I started , but on my way
met a friend who pqrsundud mo to stop
with him and to try Swift's Specific. I
had no faith in patent medicines , and at
llrst would not listen to such advice. Hut
mv sufferings were so intense 1 finally
Yielded. Attcr the first bottle I felt a
great change , and by the time I had used
one do/.iin unities I was like myself once
more. 1 otill felt soiuo pain in my limbs
and .so continued the use of the medicine ,
mid to-day one would never think tluit I
had been such a wreck and ( uiroil by that

case of malarial fever which prostrated
mo in both body and mind , I was drugged

other mineral mixtures , but with no good

energy gone. My logs and foot would

was dropsy. These symptoms alarmed
me1 , and I was ready to grasp at any
remedy suggested. A friend advised mete
to try Swift's Specific. I procured throe ,

Cancer ol * the Womb.
My mother , Mrs Feathers , has had a
cancer of the womb for many months.
Last , winter tlio doctor told us Ft was can
cer and could not bo cured. Five different
physicians in private practice have said
the same thing. Wo took her to the
woman's hospital of this city , aud there
they repeated the sumo Mory. Dr. Km-
mett told us it was cancer , and nlio must
die. Wo then took" her to the Now York
College hospital , and they told us the
same thing there , Unit she had rancor
and could live bnt a very short Urns. She
was then carried to my house , vrhqru she
awaited patiently the cowing o ! death as
her only relief. Wo saw llto advertise
ment of the Swift Specific Co. , and us a
"drowning man grasps at a straw , " wo
wnnt to tlio ollicfi of the company and
the physician told me to try it , that it
could do her no possible harm and that It
would euro her. She had lest a great
deal of flesh and strength , and It scorn-id
folly to give her medicine after what wo
hail been told. However , wii commenced
the S. S. S , , and kept It tin a month before -
fore we began to see any improvement.
From that time on her general health im
proved and she was fqou raised from
bed. The discharge increased so much
that It frightened us , but wo kept on , and
thu cancer came away in great sloughs
and lumps. For two months mnt tljorti
has been no hcniori hiL'D : , no sign uf a
discharge. Thank Gaifj mv mother is

Terrible Case Cared.
In 1873 I was poisoned by contact with
poison oak. My face nnd neck swelled
terribly , and tlio itching and burning
sensation was almost unbearable I tried
both the homeopathic and the allopathic
treatment , but both failed of a cure. I
went under treatment of one of the most
distinguished phvsicians of Now York
City , then to Dr. Aguew , of Philadelphia.
: uid these failed to effect a cure. I tried
Hot Springs , Ark. , and Blount Springs ,
Ala. , where I found temporary relief
only. For two years I suffered on , and
alternated between comparative relief
and sufferings that seemed beyond my
power to bear. It seemed no matter what
I did , as if it were impossible to rid my-
helf of the poison. In 1884 , in October ,
ivl.en in desperation , but having very
littjo faith in it , I commenced using
Swift's Specific. Attcr I had taken a
number 01 bottles I felt that my diges
tion and general health was improved ,
but so far as I could tell the poison was
still in my system. After I finished
the second dozen bottles I began to see a
change for the better. Ncarlv every sign
of my dread affliction had disappeared ,
my skin was clear and in its normal con
dition , and again I believed that I was
forever free from this terrible allliction.
I have now completed my forty-eighth
bottle , and feel free again , with no sign
of any eruption but a few pimples , which
I believe to bo the last faint signs of the
result of my terrible blood poisoning. I
cannot say too much in praise of tlio S. S.

A Totnl Wreck.
In 1801. I contracted blood poison.
Since that time I have suffered tortures
from an affection of the skin , rheumatism
and ulcerating sores. During those long
years of disease L underwent treatment
at the hands of leading physieans in Nor
wich , Hartford , Providence , Boston and
Chicago. Failing to get relief nt ono
place I would go to another , but mot
with the snmo treatment and effect every
where. The quantities of mercury and
potash I have taken have not only done
mo no good , but I believe it has done
much harm. 1 have been taking S. S. S. six
weeks , nnd it is hard to believe my own
feelings , though the fact that it lias done
more for me in that short lime than alt
other medicines have in twenty years is
plain and undeniable. Six weeks ago 1
was a total wreck , without hope. Now
that I have taken fourteen bottles of S
S. S. my rheumatism is among the things
of the past , and the scars only show that
I was diseased. When 1 began taking
Swift's Specific there was a large eating
ulcer over my right eye which alarmed
me greatly , and no ono who saw it
thought 1 would ever get well. Like the
other , it is gone , nnd I thank God for the
creation of the Swift Specilic Company
and their great , remedy.

Father and Child.
Two years ago I contracted blood
poison , and after nine months of treat
ment by physicians with no benefit , I
have been cured by Swift's Specific.
When 1 began taking S. S. S. I had run
down in flesh from 181 to 132 pounds.
There were three largo sloughing ulcers
as large as the palm of my hand on my
leg and one on my head. Now they are
all cured up and 1 have regained fifteen
pounds of mv lost llesh. I am feeling
thoroughly well and paining every day.
Swift's Specific has also cured a child of
mine of "king's evil" or scrofula after
two doctors said it must die. It had
largo swellings in its nccK , sore eyes , and
a chronic discharge from ono oar. It was
the cure of the child which led me to take
it myself , and for the peed of others I am
only too glad to have them referred to
mc'tlmt 1 may tell what this wonderful
medicine has done for mo and mine.

Your most valuable medicine , Swift's
Specilic , has done mo so much good that I
feel like saying this for the benefit of
those who Buffer as I did. I was poisoned
by poison oak , and saw not a well day
for six years until I used Swift's Specific.
In the six years I used almost every kind
of medicine , but none had the desired
effect. After using six bottles of Swift's
Specific I am restored to perfect health ,
with not a sign of that awful poison left.
A Coppersmith's Sl.ory.
I am a coppersmith by trade , and dur
ing a scries of years my arms ( being bare
when at work ) have absorbed a wonder
ful amount of metal poison. Having
u scrofulous tendency irom my youth ,
the small particles of copper and brass
would get intu the sores , and by this pro
cess the poison was convoyed into my
blood till my whole system became in
fected , I was treated with the old rein ,
edles of mercury and iodide potassium.
Salivation followed , my teeth are all
loose In my head , my digestive organs
deranged , and I have ucon helpless in bed
for over u year with mercurial rheuma
tism. My joints are all swollen , and I
lost the use of my arms and legs entirely.
My sufferings became so intense that it
was impossible for mo to rest. The doc
tors advised me to go to the city hos
pital for treatment. This I ponld not
bear. A friend , who has proved a friend
indeed , urged mo to try Swift's Specific ,
believing it would euro mo , Others dis
couraged mo , but I secured a few botlles ,
and have now taken two do/.on bottles.
The first effect , of the medicine was to
bring the poison to the surface and I
broke out all over in running sores ,
They soon disappeared , and my skin
cleared oil' . My knees , which had become
twice lhiiirnaturalslxohavo resumed Iheir
usual si/.e , and are Mippln as of yore. My
arms and hands are all right again , and
can use them without pain. 'Jliu oiiliio
di.scafco has left all parts ot the body save
two nlcer.i on my wiifets , which uro lienl-
imr rapidly. I am weak from long con-
finuuienl , but I have the use of all my
limbs , Tills medicine is bringing me out
of the greatest trial of my life , and I can
not ( hid wordy an Ilk-inn t to express .my
appreciation of Its virtues , and the grati
tude I feel that I ever heard of it.

for her all that affection and money could
do for about four years , and with all this
wo barely managed to keep her alive.
She was the most afilictcd child I over
saw. She had abscesses on all of hoi-
joints and on her neck , nnd small pieces
of bone worked from them for moro
than two years , and her elbow and hip
joints stiffened. After trying , as wo
thought , almost everything , and appar
ently without any permanent cllect , in
our despair concluded to try Swift's
Specilic. Strange to say before she had
finished the first bottle wo saw u quango
for the better. Her appetite began to
improve and her eyes to brighten. Soon
she ceased to complain of the distressing
pains which had made her life miserable
for the previous years. In ten months
after she began to take S. S. S. all the ab-
cesses had licalcd up , and she now had
grown much taller and improved in
weight 20 percent. Now , with the ex
ception of a stiff elbow nnd hip , she
is as well as any one. No one who
know her condition thought she would
over got over it. Wo attribute her recov
ery to Swift's Specific entirely , 1 have
seen it tried with "several others horc ,
aud always with good results. "
A Wondrous Change.
1 have been nfllicled with scrofula from
my infancy , and in consequence have
always been a frail and delicate creature.
1 might truthfully say that 1 was laised
cliicfiv on mercury and potash. These
remedies for the time being would dry up
the fearful ulcers with which I suffered ,
but they would return with greater vie
lence. I was the merest shadow as to
form and person. My digestion was all
deranged , and my existence was most
wretched. At last a great tumor came
0,11 , my neck below the left ear. It in
creased in s'r/.o until mv head was forced
to the right shoulder , " In March , 1881 , I
was induced to try Swift's Specific. My
system responded to the medicine
promptly , and 1 began to improve from
almost the firstbottle. The fearful tumor
lias all disappeared. From a frailo little
gill 1 have developed into as healthy and
robust a voting lady as them is in the
neighborhood. Swift's Specific , is tie (
only remedy that has ever given mo any
permanent relief , mid 1 tun in bettor
health and weigh more than I ever.did
boforo. My old friends scarcely recog
nize me Eince the wonderful change has
been wrought in my appearance ,

' A Desperate Case.
I have been suffering with scrofula for
the past four years. For two
years I tried various remedies pro-
hcribcd by a number of the
best physicians. They treated me for
what they called a fa.tty tumor on nock.
Tins proved a delusion , us the rising ,
which had assumed a foartul shape ,
broke and commenced to discharge
freely. In 18b'3. being convinced that
the allliction with which I suffered was of
ti scrofulous uat'tro. ' I , was induced to
try Swift's Specific. I was growing , ij 's-
porato , anil wanted a speedy ctire , njid
as the S. S. S. did not not us promptly jus
1 thought it should , 1 was easily persuad
ed to quit it and try another prupiu >
lion. That did me no good , and 1 dmiigcil
to another containing potash and inev
cury , and that cnmo near wrecking niuj
My life was despaiied of , Almost di.s-
hearkened of ever .seeing a well day
again , 1 was Induced to go back to
Swift's SpeeiliqIt was my only hope.
In December , 18X4 , 1 commenced a royin
lar course. It was some time beforeiny
system yielded to its influence , but when
it did I began lo improve at once , I hud "
become .so weak I could scarcely walk" ,
but under the influence of S , b. S , my
general health has greatly improved , and
I feel ns well us well as I ever fell in my
life to-day. The scais alone remain to
toll of my former sufferings , every other
evidence of the disease having disap
peared , and I can honestly say that S. S.
S. bits saved my life.
