Monsters and Microbes.
How ilio Microbe Would Appear
Ii Magnified in Slzo io Cor-
respond With lis Tower.
The world has always believed in
monsters great dragons of the land,
nnd huge serpents of the sett, As a
rule these monsters have been fairly
peaceable, and beyond frightening peo
ple occasionally, they have done little
recorded harm. The, red calamities of
humanity have come from the smallest
forms of life. Tlie minute microbe has
slain its millions upon millions. If this
microscopic form of life were dcpicled
in size nnd form equal to its danger and
deaillincss we should see a monster
which would dwarf into insignificance
nil the monsters ever begotten by hu
man imagination. The microbe has tins
in common with the fabled monster, its
food is human flesh nnd its drink human
blood. It battens on slaughter. For
centuries medical science fought this
microbic foe in darkness. The presence
of the foe was recognized, its deadliness
conceded. But it was ever an invisible
foe, unknown and unnamed. To-day
science with eye-power increased a mil
lion fold finds this lurking foe, knows it
and names it.

is the first step, fighting it intelligently
is the next. We know this minute or
ganism lurks in tlie air we breathe, the
food we eat, the water we drink. We
know the object of attack is the blood.
We know that as the microbe is bred
from foulness it must be fed on foulness.
Hence, we know that the microbe finds
no lodgment in the body when the blood
is pure. Keep the blood pure and you
shut out the microbe.
When the bloodis impure nature at
once begins to show the red danger sig
nals. Boils, blotches, pimples, erup
tions begin to work upon tlie skin sur
face, as signs and symptoms of the cor
ruption of the blood. When these or
any signs of blood impurity appear, the
use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery is confidently recommended as a
most powerful nnd perfect blood -purifying

years ago, I got poisoned with poison

I could do nothing but scratch. I would
