Miss Rose Judge, of 901 Stone avenue, while engaged In washing, yesterday morning, accidentally upset a pall of boiling water, fearfully scalding her left forearm. Dr. J, J. Walsh was hast ily summoned und dressed the unfor tunate young lady's Injuries. Itobert Farrell, of Cedar itvenue, u brukemau ut the South works, had his loft foot badly crushed yesterday, whllu endeuvorlng to couplo two cars. He was 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 ,it0m&tim& 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. 1'INDIKG Tint l'OI? 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 medicine. "I consider your 'Golden Medical Discovers' ' one of the, best medicines on the face of tlie earth,"' writes Win, 1'loe ter, Esq., of Redoak, Montgomery Co., Iowa. "While in the south-west, three years ago, I got poisoned with poison ivy. The poison settled in my blood and tlie horrors I suffered cannot be told in words. I thought I would go crazy. I could do nothing but scratch. I would go to sleep scratching, would wake up in the morning and find myself scratching. I scratched for eight months. Had it taken to the Moses Taylor hospital for treatment.

Took four bottles without relief. Kept taking it. I took in nil ten bottles and got entirely cured, I can say that if people would take your medicine instead of fooling with some of the quacks that infest both the small and large towns, disease would flee like chnff before the wind." Tlie use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Med tail Discovery will absolutely drive out and eliminate the poisoiw which, cor rupt the blood. DAD M.OOD AND GOOD UUKhtlt cannot go together. But when the blood is purified and enriched by "Gold en Medical Discovery," Ihe result is re corded in sound health. Boils, blotches, pimples and other eruptions dlsap ' pear ns the impurities which causcti mem are removed. The skin is healthy, the flesh is firm. The dull nnd sluggish feel ing is a thing of the past. The appetite is good, sleep is sound and refreshing and labor an enjoyment instead of a burden. " It gives me much pleas ure to testify to the merits of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery," writes Miss Anuic Wells, of Fer gussons Wharf, Isle of Wight Co., Vn. "I can say honestly and candidly that it is the grandest medicine ever compound ed for purifying the blood. I suffered terribly with rheumatism, and pimples on the skin .and swelling in my knees and feet so Hill mat i couta not walk, k Mi.V spent about twenty dollars paying doctors' bills but ," received no benefit. A year or two ago I was reading one of your Memorandum Books, and I de cided to try Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and ' Favorite Prescription,' and am entirely cured." Of all prevalent forms of blood dis. case, scrofula is the most intractable. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery has a remarkable record of cures of scrofulous diseases ; remarkable both in the number of cures and their variety as well as in the fact that these cures were effected many times in cases where all other treatment had proved utterly ineffectual. " I cured my little girl's scrofula with your 'Golden Medical Discovery' and ' Pleasant Pellets,"' writes Mr. Eli Ash ford of Raney, Hunt Co., Texas. "It lias been four years since then, and there has not been any return of the disease." There is no alcohol in "Golden Med ical Discovery," and it is entirely free from opium, cocaine and all other nar cotics. Why does a dealer sometimes try to sell a substitute for Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, claiming it is "just as good ? " Is it for the customer's ben efit? It can't be. If the two medicines are equal in merit there's no advantage to the purchaser in an even exchange. The medicines are not equal in merit, and the reason for selling a substitute is only because the less meritorious med icine puts a little more profit into the dealer's pocket. His gain is the cus tomer's loss. DON'T THINK OV BUYING a work on household medicine when you can get a good one free.
