Comforting Words

 My wife's great grandfather, Benjamin Franklin Longacre was quoted in the newspaper 108 years ago. I would assume he was paid by the local drug store for his testimonial.

Abilene Semi Weekly Farm Reporter July 31, 1907

At the time he was a 35 year old farmer in Myrkle, Texas with six children at home.

I hope he actually got the relief reported in the paper but probably just as useful was whatever compensation he received for talking about the unnatural secretions.

In case you are interested in trying them, you can still buy Doan's Kidney Pills today.

I am tempted to add his review to those on Amazon and see what kind of feedback he gets.
