Mr. Radam was an interesting man as you will see and really knew how to spin a story and appeal to peoples fears. He represented quack medicine to the fullest with his outlandish boasts. I think it is interesting or alarming, depending on how you look at it, that there is very similar medicinal product advertising happening today that makes incredible promises.

The Daily Gazette, Xenia, Ohio, 16 November 1889

Wm RADAM’S MICROBE KILLER

Nearly all well-read people are familiar
 with the scientific investigations of Profs Koch and Pasteur, respectively of Germany and France, as well as a number of other
 scientists of almost equal renown, whose experiments have proven conclusively that all
 diseases are causes by microbes in the blood. 
They are called microbes, because they are a
 living matter, and only discovered by the
 aid of powerful microscopes.

But until
 William Radam discovered his Microbe Killer 
Medicine there was absolutely nothing
 known in the annals of Medicine that would 
destroy these Microbes or Germs of Diseases 
existing in the blood. The Microbe Killer 
does Kill the Microbes in the blood without 
fail, as the thousands of testimonials we have
 in our possession demonstrate. 
Microbes being the cause of all diseases,
 Microbe Killer will therefore cure them.

WE EXCEPT NO DISEASES WHATEVER. 
Ladies and gentlemen desiring enlight upon
 the Microbe Theory, as well as upon any disease they may be afflicted with, are cordially 
invited to call and get pamphlets for full particulars. We will forfeit $1,000 if any single 
one of our testimonials can be proven as 
not genuine. 
RADAM’S MICROBE KILLER CO.
