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.

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.
