E. Closson, manufacturer of the justly celebrated Family Remedies in this city, is a very interesting one. Mr. Closson now has twenty-one lady clerks busily engaged in loooking after his voluminous correspondence, and the amount of medicines shipped out daily from the establishment is simply surprising. Mr. C. is making arrangements to cover the entire west this season, and as every report which comes in from his agents is favorable, he is much encouraged over the prospect. There is no longer any doubt of the value of these medicines, and it is evident the proprietor has good reason to expect immense sales in the near future. They have now been thoroughly tried, and it is a not able fact that the largest orders now come from the localalities where they have been longest sold.— Bulletin Journal, Independence, Iowa, May 19th, 1893. It is a fixed and immutable law that to have good, sound health one must have pure, rich and abundant blood. There is no shorter nor surer route than by a course of DeWitt's Sarsapdrilla.

In a recent letter to the proprietors, Mi H. M. Bangs, the druggist at Chatswortb 111.,says: "I am very much pleased with Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
