to Suwanee Sulphur Springs In Florida,
and after staving there seventy days she
coubt get about lively oral quick as any

the seventy days We returned to Hnwk

nothing but the water* used from B'J

9 month* obi At the age of one month,
It was mulcted with a dreadful breaking
out all over Its fa sand body, eye* begun
to Inflame, and we thought for a time
It would lose the sight. It troubled us
very much. We called In a iloctor, who
did not think there wa* much the matter,
but the child continued to grow worse,
and It wa* suffering so much and was so
fretful that we hod no rest night or day
We did everything we could, but brought
no relief lo the little sufferer. I tried ev

but without the desired effect About
this time we got to the spring*. In a few

less than two month* It was perfectly
well Splotches all left the skin; II is now
a healthy child, and ha* bright-good
eye and fair skin as you wish to*see
Ever since I was 15 year* old I have had
catarrh of the head. 1 tried all kinds of
medicine and the best physicians for 15
years, but without any benefit. When I
visited the Suwanee Spring* with my
wife for th< rheumatism. I found the
water was u cure for catarrh, and after
using It a while my head began to feel
clear, my breath got pure and sweet, and
I have never been troubled with neuralgia,
