Arkansas Farmer Follows Advice of Cooper
and Gains Fifteen Pounds in Few Weeks
A. D. Henry, a prominent farmer liv
ing on Rural Route No. 5, Jonesboro,
Ark., in a statement given for publication,
tells a story that makes interesting read
ing for persons who suffer from stomach
trouble. Mr. Henry says: t
"For six years I was a chronic sufferer
from stomach trouble. In all that time
I did not eat a meal to enjoy It. No mat
ter what I ate, it caused pain and dla
trees. Food laid in a hard lump upon my
stomach. I lost In fletth and strength,
and was unable to find relief. I suffered
night and day was robbed of my sleep
and rebt, and arose In the morning as
tired aa when I went to bed. I waa com
pletely run down, and derived no benefit
from any medicine I took.
One day, while in town, my druggist
recon.mended Cooper'a New Discovery. I
had noticed several articles In the news
papers regarding thla man Cooper's work
in the larger cities, and decided to give
hla medicine a trial. It'a effect surprised
me. Before I had taken all of the first
bottle 1 felt wonderfully Improved. The
pain and distress had left me, my appe
tite was good, my bowels were movlnj
regularly and naturally, and I began to
sleep aoundly at night.
I continued the treatment, taking sever
al more bottles, and In six weeks' time
I felt like a new man, fully restored to
health and strength. I gained fifteen
pounds while taking the Cooper medicine.
I cannot say enough In praise of Cooper a
New Discovery it brought new life to
The theory of L. T. Cooper la baaed
upon common sense reasoning. When
asked recently why his medicine Is so
auccesaful, he replied: "My New Dla
covery la successful because it correcta
the stomach. My theory la that few can
be sick If the digestive apparatus la work
ing properly. It naturally follows that
few can be well with a poor digestion.
I know from experience that most of the
tired, half-stck people that are ao com
mon now-a-daya have half-sick stomachs.
Put the stomach In shape and nature does
the rest. The result la general good
health. My medicine doea thla."
Cooper'a New Discovery la a boon to
stomach aufferera. It la sold by all drug
gists everywhere. A sample bottle mailed
free upon request by addressing The
Cooper Medicine Company, payton. Ohio.
