The following remarkable statement was

medicines and theories have aroused such
wldennread Interest In th east, and who
Is now In Omaha Introducing his medicines
During the last few days many people
who are now taking the prejaratlon I have
come to Omaha .to Introduce have brought'
to me Internal parasite commonly called
tape worms that have passed from the ays
tern. Many of thee eopl have been
alarmed and cam to ask for an explana
tlon. Some of these people did not vn
know the nature of th parasite they
brought to me, and In consequence, were
extremely nervous and excited over the
I take this opportunity of explaining
what theee creatures are and what I have
learned about them in the past. 'Tap.
worms,' aa they are called, are much more
common than would be supposed. I ven.
ture to say that 10 per cent of the so-
called chronic stomach trouble, and what
Is known as the "run down condition, I
caused by these creatures. In every city
I visit hundreds upon hundreds of them
are brought to me during my stay by
people who have taken my preparation,
and doubtless there are Innumerable caaes
of which I hear nothing. An Individual
may suffer for years with one of theee
great parasites and "not be awar of It.
Contrary to general belief the appetite Is
not greatly Increased; It only become lr
regular. Bomettmea ait extra sense of hun
ger Is experienced, at others the mere sight
of food will nauseate. There la generally a
feeling of falntneas. however, and a gnaw
ing sensation In the pit of the stomach.
People afflicted with one of these para
sites are generally nervous and easily de
crensed. The chief r.tion Is one of
longuor, the least exertion will tire, and
there is, as a rule, a dull pain the lower
part of the back. The individual Imagines
that he or she Is suffering from many
diseases. The parasite ts never In Itself
fatal, but It consume a great part of the
sustenance from all food eaten, and In
consequence there is not enough nourish
ment to sustain the body. The system losec
vitality and every organ becomes more or
'Lack of energy and ambition not only
affects the body, but the mind also be

not so good and the eyesight become

this conclusively before t leave Omaha with
my preparations. My medicine ln cleans.
Ing the atomach of Impurities seems to b
fatal to theee great worms and drives them
from the system with astonishing rapidity

haa had the experience Just related, with
