History of
Guenther's Lung Healer.

This was first used in Millow, Germany, by DR. AUGUSTUS GUENTHER, in his private practice, and with such success that on his death he left the secret as a legacy to his brother, ANDREAS GUENTHER, who in turn gave the same to his son, WM. GUENTHER, (one of the present proprietors,) on condition that the same should not be used, except as charity, until after his death, which occurred in 1874. Since that time WM. GUENTHER has been giving the world the benefit of his truly wonderful secret for the cure of
Consumption!
