A man helpless with CHARLES CITY BRIEFS CHARLES CITY, Feb. 15.--Five Hart-Parr tractors were shipped from the Oliver Equipment factory to Stockholm, Sweden, yesterday. Row crop tractors were shipped to Columbia and Mexico. H. J. Huber and B. F. Welsh are attending the hardware dealers' convention in Des Moines. Mrs. J. B. Hoover of Dundee wife of a former pastor of East St. MRS. W. J. HOOD rheumatism four years suddenly found himself able to work; a lady down in bed near paralysis, was up and around before finishing the first box fit Gly-Cas; another lady after suffering 28 years now able to eat what she wants and enjoy her meals again. Now another amazing statement--read what Mrs. W. J. Hood 1G18 N. Madison Ave., Masdn City' respected local lady, having lived here the past 42 years and an active member of the Grace Evangelical Church, this city, recently said in regards to Gly-Cas' merit: "It Is a pleasure to be the means of many people learning about Gly- Cas for It gives such remarkable results," she said. "I was in such condition for years that it was even hard for me to get about with this rheumatism over my ,body. It was many years coming on me and then it was impossible for me to find anything to free myself of it--until my friends and neighbors, knowing of my condition persuaded me to give Gly-Cas a trial. It was to my pleasant surprise that In four weeks' time I was well on the road'to recovery--and after all other medicines had failed to help me in any way. Gly-Cas is a medicine that has a different action and seemingly gets to the very source of the trouble. If anyone wishes to know further about this new remedy they can call me at my home." So It goes--every day Gly-Cas gets to the cause of more and more cases of rheumatism, neuritis, nervousness, stomach, kidney, bowel and blood troubles. Gly-Cas is cold by Michael Drug Co., 5 S.
