"For orer fifteen years the itcblnc pilei
have been a source of constant annoyance to
me, and frequently, too, the suffering has
become intense. At times there was bleed
ing and the itching and burning was bayond
endurance. The results I have derived from
Dr. Chase's Ointment have been magical and
the benefits lasting, I feci it a duty to fel
low sufferers to recommend it."
r Rer. T. N. Van Natter, Methodist minis
tir. Albion, Wis., writes:
"My wife was terribly afflicted with pro.
trading piles and contemplated a surgical
operation when her notice was drawn to Dr.
Chase's Ointment, and less than one box
effected a cure,"
"I then used it for an unsightly and
troublesome skin affection, which had baffled
medical skill for twenty-five years. Dr.
Chase's Ointment thoroughly rured It. Tor
piles and skin disease it is worth its weight
Iter. I. A. Baldwin. Baptist minister.
Arkona, Ont., writes:
" For over twenty ear I as a great suf
ferer from itching and protruding piles. I
used many remedies and underwent three ery
painful surgical operations, all without
obtaining any permanent benefit. When
about to give Up in despair I was told to use
Dr. Chase's Ointment and did so, finding
relief at once. I used three boxes, and am
entirely cured. The itching is all gone, I
bave advised others to use it, believing it
would cure tbem as it has me,"
Rev. Chas. Fish, Methodist minister, 193
Dunn avenue, Toronto, Ont., writes.
"Ten years ago cuema began on my ears
and spread over my head and bands. Dur
ing that time I was a great sufferer. I tried
many icmedies, and some of the best physl
clans specialists on skin diseases treated
me. The first box of Dr. Chase's Ointneat
gave much relief and fire boxes completely
cured me. I think my cure a marvel, anal
gladly recommend Dr. Chase's Olntsntnt."

negroia tematked that there was a lot
of oystfis in a creek not far away I
went iiftci them with nil haste, pic
turing the treat In store for me.
"The nwgio explained llmt as an ox

Imi'ore he could not say how many,

N w Yiuk. Ono could recogn ze the 'aet
that they wete onters, or had been,
but they had acquired a pecull.u and
unpleasant tlaor, while their outwaid
appearance was eurlouHly changed.
The shells had giown Mat and the oys
teis were nearly squeezed out. Thev
weio plentiful enough, and seemed to
multiply, so thnt they are not likely
to cease changing, and I hap often
wondered If, in the couise of a few
more rears, the oyster would not be
squeeaad entirely out of the shell, af
fording a parallel to the Australian
cherry, which has squeezed out the
stone so that It la now on the outside.
An oyster with the shell on Its back
would be a eight to open the eyes of a
Waldorf cho. but If the thing haa hap

not In the case of the oyster alaoT And
T am certain that I saw tha beginning

IN HOME CASES
A Single Package of the Pyramid
Pile Curo Is Sufficient to Cure.
This may seem a broad statement
when It Is remembered that few dis
eases ore eo obstinate to really curo as
plies; some physicians going so far
as to nay that a painful surgical op
eration la the only permanent cure, but
the many and remarkable cures mudo
by the Pyramid Pile Curo In tho past
few years bave proven that surgical
operations ate no longer necessary,
that it Is, by far, the safest and most
reliable remedy yet discovered for this
common and often dangerous trouble.
The harmless acids and healing oils
contained In Uie Pyramid Pile Cure
cause tho blood vessels to contract to
a natuial condition and tho little tu
mors are absorbed and the euro Is
made without pain, Inconvenience or
detention from business.
Dr. Williams, a prominent orlflclal
surgeon, says: "It Is tho duty of every
surgeon to avoid nn operation If pos
sible to cure In any other way, and
after munv tilals with the ryramld
Pile Cute I unhesitatingly recommend
it In pteforetue to an opciation."
Mr. Phil Owens, of 80. Omaha, writes
that after suffering two years from an
ugsravated ease ot itching and pro
truding piles ho was cured by u single
50 tent package of tho Pyramid Pile
Cuio, purchased from a local druggist,
he says; "I tully exected the trouble
would leturn, but am happy to sav
for the past year and a half haa
been entirely free from the disease and
I can not speak too watmly In favor
of the Pyramid Pile Cure."
A bill eletk In one of the huge
wholesale houses ot St, Louis says:
".My occupation as billing clerk was so
conlliiing and sedentaiy that It finally
brought on an aggravated attack ot
reetal trouble, which my physician di
agnosed as Itching and protruding
plies, and recommended a salve which
ho prepared and which gave me some
te-llcf for a few hours after using and
then the trouble would come back as
bad as evet: one of Uie other eierks
advised me to tiy tho Pyramid Pile
Curo and I now feel like thanking him
eveiy day for ircominendlug II, as it
single ."0 cent package cured nie and
T have had no trace of piles since,
something over six months"
Hundreds of pile sufferers who had
almost decided to undergo the pain and
d'tnger of un operation have been as
tonished to find that the Pyramid Pile
Cure, which can be put chased at any
ding sloie, was fur safer, belter and
more effective than an operation could
