Such an Issue does not always end the struggle, but It did in the case of Mr. K.

He tells the story thus s "Seven years ago, my wife had a severe attack of lung troubfe which the physicians pronounced consumption. The cough was extremely distressing, especially nt night, and was frequently attended with the spitting of blood. The doctors being unable to help her, I induced her to try Dr. Ay er'j Cherry Pectoral and was surprised at the great relief It gave. Before using one whole bottle she was cured, so that now she is strong and quite healthy. That this medicine saved my wife's lite I have not the least doubt. I always keep Dr. Ayer's Cherry Pectoral In the house. Whenever any of ray family have a cold or cough we use it, and are promptly cured." K. Moutl, Memphis, 1 The question "Is consumption cura.
