When Max'im. the famous gun inventor, placed his "iin before a committee of judges, he stated its car-
ryiaa; power to lie Touch bclpw what
he felt sure the gun would accomplish. The result of the trial was
therefore a great surprise, instead of
disappointment. It is the same with
the manufacturers of Chanvliteriain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. They do not boast of what
this remedy will accomplish, but prefer to let the users. ni-ake. the statements. What they do claim, is that
it. will possibly cure .diarrhoea, dysentery, pains in the stomach and how
