"Joy to the World."
THE INTRODUCTION OF PERRY DAVIS' PAIN KILLER
To the stuttering humanity of
this age, has relieved more pain and caused more real joy than any other one
thing that can be named.
IT IS A "BALM FOR EVERY WOUND."
OUR FIRST PHYSICIANS USE, AND
RECOMMEND ITS USE. The Apothecary finds it first among the medicines called for,
and the Wholesale Druggist considers it a leading article of his trade. All the
dealers in medicine speak alike in its favor; and its reputation as a medicine
of great merit and virtue is fully and permanent established. A. N. WILLIAMS,
Parkersburg, Va., one of the oldest and most respectable and reliable Druggists
of Western Virginia, writes: "I can say of Perry Davis' Pain
Killer what I could not say of many of the medicines of the day. In my trade it
is a leading article. I sell largely of it, and it gives entire satisfaction to
all. I would on no account be without it." JOHN PARKINS, Druggist, at Athens,
Ohio, writes: "I sell considerable of Davis'
Pain Killer in this place, and it is well liked and highly commended by all who
use it." GEO. WILLIAMS, Druggist, at
Hockingport, O., writes: "Perry Davis' Pain Killer is
quite generally used by the inhabitants of our town and is much extolled. I
think it the best medicine I have for the uses for which it is recommended."

Agents should be careful in
directing their orders to us, as several small unprincipled imitators of our
styles have sprung into existence lately, who copy our advertisements, and
"promise" the same Premiums that we have "given agents" for years. Those parties
can not fulfill those promises; consequently, agents can not be dealt with
honorably by them. Those parties who advertise those Premiums require agents to
send them from $40 to $50 in cash for their poor imitations before they can
receive any thing. "We" do as we have done for years, present our customers with
a Beautiful Gold or Silver "Hunting-Case Watch" on the spot, or send it with
their "first order." No delay, no promises. We do it, and guarantee all our
watches as perfect time-keepers, OR REFUND THE MONEY AND PRESENT THE GOODS.
Agents will notice that our Prize Packages must be of extra quality, and meet
with a ready sale, or they would not be imitated. We are the sole importers of
the beautiful watches we present to agents, and no other houses have them.
