Cures Drunkards Secretly

February 15, 1902


An advertisement for a free, small package of medicine claims to cure alcoholic husbands of their problems if their wives or daughters secretly put it in their food or drink.


Free package of the only successful cure known for drunkenness sent to all who send name and address.

It can be put secretly into food or coffee and quickly cures the drink habit.

Few men become drunkards from choice or inclination--all welcome release from the awful habit. Golden Specific will cure the worst habitual drunkard. This wonderful remedy can be administered by wife or daughter, in food, tea, coffee, or milk without causing the slightest suspicion. Its cure is sure, without harmful results to the system.

Mr. and Mrs. Harry Burnside

Many a home is now happy by the use of Golden Specific. “My husband got into a habit of taking a drink with the boys on his way home,” says Mrs. Harry Burnside. “After awhile he came home drunk frequently. He soon lost his position and I had to make a living for both of us and the little children. At times he tried to sober up, but the habit was too strong for him and then he would drink harder than ever. I heard of Golden Specific and sent for a free package. The treatment cured him. I put it in his coffee and he never knew it at all. He regained his old position and now we are happy in our little home again. I hope you will send Golden Specific to every woman that has suffered as I have, and save her loved ones from the drunkard’s grave.

Send your name and address to Dr. J. W. Haines, 2850 Glenn Building, Cincinnati, Ohio, and he will mail you a free package of Golden Specific in a plain wrapper, accompanied by full directions how to use it. Enough of the remedy is sent in each free package to give you an opportunity to witness its marvelous effect on those who are slaves to drink.

Do not delay. You cannot tell what may happen to the man who drinks, and you would never forgive yourself for waiting.
