Cured His RUPTURE
I wai btdly ruptured while lifting a
trunk several yean ago. Doctors said my
only hope of cure was an operation.
Trusses did me no good. Finally I got
hold of something that quickly and com
pletely cured me. Years have passed and
the rupture has never returned, although
I am doing hard work as a carpenter.
There waa no operation, no lost time, no
trouble. I have nothing to sell, but will
give full information about how you-may
find a complete cure without operation, if
yon write to me, Eugene M. Pullen, Car

and show it to any others who are rup
tured you may save a life or at least
stop the misery of rupture and the worry
and danger of an operation.
