"I think Konjola is a wonderful medicine and I was surprised and delighted at the prompt results I obtained," said Mrs. John Ager, 1323 Center street, Racine. "I had no idea any medicine could act so quickly. For six or seven years my hands were In a very bad condition. They were numb and I often had to/ put them In hot water In order to start the circulation. I had little strength in my fingers and they were cold all the time. "Today I am feeling flne, I have not taken Konjola since last fall and the wonderful results are still apparent. I really never expected to have relief. I have recommended Konjola to many people and to have this opportunity for telling every one Is real pleasure."
