When our only child, now in his third
year, was about eight Months old, a sore ap
peared first in small pinitples on his forehead
over his nose. These rapidly increased and
uniting formed a loathsome, virulent- sore,
which finally spread over his ferehead and
face, not even excepting his eyelids, which
became so swollen that his eyes were closed.
We called a skillful physician, who adminis
tered the usually prescribed remedies. A
solution of nitrate of silver was applied until
the mass of corruption which covered his
entire face turned jet black. The sore again
and again burst through the scorched anti
artificial skin formed by this solution. Mean
while many remedies were employed without
any apparent benefit. For fifteen days and
nights he was constantly held by his parents
to keep him from tearing open with his hands
the corrupt mass which covered his face.
Everything having failed, we were induced
by the high recommendations of Ayer's Sarsa
parilla for the cure of Scrofulous disease, to
give it a trial, In his treatise on Scrofula,
Dr. Ayer directs a mild solution of lodide of
Potase to be used as a wash while taking the
Sarsaparilla, and it was faithfully applied:
Before one bottle of Sarsaparilla had been
given the sore had lost much of its virulence
and commenced to heal. Another bottle ef—
fected an entire cure, and the general predic.
tion that the child must die was contradicted.
His eyelashes which came out, grew again,
and his face is left without a scar, as smooth
as anybody's. It is unnecessary for me to
state in how high esteem we hold Ayer's
