Medical Remedies: A Word to Consumptives – It matters not if the dreadful disease be inherited or contracted by exposure, the effects of Magee’s Emulsion will be apparent after a short course of treatment. We have seen so many marvelous cures wrought by our Emulsion in nearly every form and stage of consumption, that we fearlessly maintain that it is without an equal to-day as a specific for every kind of lung difficulty. A patient who is so far gone in consumption as to be unable to retain any other medicine on his stomach, can take MAGEE’S EMULSION without the least inconvenience. This we guarantee, and what is more, we authorize all druggists to refund the purchase money to any patient who is in a reasonable condition, and who, after taking two bottles of our Emulsion, does not gain in weight. It is plain that if a consumptive patient continues to gain in weight, a permanent cure must result.
A case of hereditary consumption cured, Syracuse, N.Y.
J. A. Magee & Co.; Sirs – I have been a long and patient sufferer from a lung difficulty; have taken a great amount of medicine, and been under the care of several physicians, all of which finally failed to benefit me. I had lost two sisters and one brother from the dread disease of consumption, and when the doctors gave me up I thought I should follow them by the ravages of the same disease. I was terribly reduced in weight, scarcely weighing 100 pounds where I once weighed 150 pounds. I took your Emulsion and at once began to experience relief, gained strength, and now weigh 150 pounds. No other medicine could have done as much for my lungs I am sure, and I can recommend it without hesitation on its own merits. Yours truly, Nellie Nolan.
See that your Druggist sells you only Magee’s Emulsion, prepared by J. A. Magee & Co., Lawrence, Mass.

Medical Remedies – Papillon
After suffering four years I have used the Papillon Skin Cure for my ulcerated sore leg. It has entirely healed and is free from pain. I have recommended it to several persons here, and they are trying it. I will take great pleasure in recommending it, for I can safely do so. I suffered with my leg four years, and tried a great number of remedies that gave me no relief. Your medicine cured me. I cheerfully give you permission to write a testimonial just to suit yourself.
Thank you for such a medicine, I am, Mrs. M. LaRue., Covington, Ky., April 5, 1884
A Case of Eczema. I have been afflicted for about three years with Eczema. i think I had a good doctor; he did all he could for me, until he was baffled; he could do nothing more and gave me up. I have tried many ointments which did me no good. I have used your Papillon Skin Cure for four months; used four bottles, and am nearly cured. I give you perfect liberty to publish this if it will help any one else. I have recommended it to all my friends. Another bottle will completely cure me. With many thanks, Julia Callow, 14 Grant Street, Cleveland, O
