"Your 'Golden Medical Discovery' has performed a wonderful cure," writes
Mr. M. H. House, of Charleston, Franklin Co., Ark. "I had the worst case of
dyspepsia, the doctors say, that they ever saw. After trying seven doctors and
everything I could hear of, with no benefit, I tried Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery, and now I am cured."
"The praise I would like to give your ' Golden Medical Discovery ' I cannot utter
in words or describe with pen," writes James B. Ambrose, Esq., of 1205 Mifflin
Street, Huntingdon Pa. "I was taken down with what our physicians said was
indigestion. I doctored with the best around here and found no relief. I wrote
to you and you advised me to use Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. I took
three bottles and I felt so good that I stopped being, as I think, cured. I have
no symptoms of gastric trouble or indigestion now."
Mr. Edward Jacobs, of Marengo. Crawford Co., Indiana, writes: "After

Whilo tho imincdiato causo of death may be tho bullet, tho predisposing cause may bo physical, weakness,
duo tcvnu ill-nourished body, and tho mental depression consequent on physical weakness. Men who have been
rescued from starvation tell strango stories of the phantoms and fancies called up by tho weak brain. Pious men
of old who fasted overmuch, have also loft on record tho story of. visions and temptations assurodly tho product of

But this man did not fast ! He ato and drank of tho best at all times. And yet ho may have starved. It is

a loss of nutrition. In
this loss and tho weakest organ is the first to succumb to
the resulting disease.
The testimony to tho cures of disease of tho stomaoh
and tho other organs of digestion and nutrition by tho
use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery comes from
all classes and both Boxes. Clergymen, lawyers, mer
chants, clerks, laborers, affirm that it roots out the diseaso,
purifies and enriches tho blood and gives new life and new
strength. In general the loss of nutrition by disease
shows itself in loss of flesh. When the disease causing
loss of nutrition is cured by " Golden Medical Discovery,
the cure is marked by tho regaining of (sound healthy
flesh, pound by pound, as tho euro progresses. One of
the commonest words of our language is tho word indi
gestion. It is so common that we think lightly of the
complaint it indicates. Indigestion should be regarded
as the beginning of serious forms of '"disease and be
treated promptly and practically by the use of " Golden
Medical Discovery." It cures simple cases quickly. It
cures complex cases moro slowly, but tho important point
is that in ninety-eight per cent of cases, whatever the
stage of disease, "Golden Medical Discovery" cures it
perfectly and permanently. Head what is said by the
