To Cure the Grip in Two Days
La alive Drwno-Quialna Tablet!.
Mon Who Starve Themselves
to Accumulate Monoy.
There is n certain fearful fascination
about the stories of the misers of the
past The money they accumulated wns
of no more practical value to them than
the trinkets stolen and secreted by tome
magpie or jackdaw. They hid rt from
the sight and use of men and in silence
and secret gloated over the useless
wealth. To gathet it they lived on
crusts or offal, grudged clothes to cover
them and fire to warm them, lived
starved lives and in not a few cases died
of starvation. That was the old-time
miser. The modern miser resembles
this man of the past in the particular
that he frequently dies of btarvation.
In his eagerness to gather money he
pays small heed to the claims of health.
He eats anything, anyhow, nnywhen,
nnd auywhe're. He doesn't cat crusts
by auv means nor spare his purse to fill
his stomach. The mistake he makes is
in thinking that when a man has filled
his stomach, that is the end of the busi
ness, of feeding. Instead of being the
cud of feeding it's only the beginning.
There is no value in food uuless it is
'.Rested, converted into nu'iition and
Siimllatcd. These proce.ws depend
ipon the healthfulness of the stomach
mil the other organs of digestion and
nutrition When these organs are clis
eased they cannot extract the nutrition
from the food receiveel into the stomach
aud the bodv becomes weak through
lack of nourishment. One day this
"weakness" begins to find a special de
velopment in some chiei organ, heart,
liver, lungs, kidneys, etc., to which the
man succumbs. The doctor's certificate
reads "heait disease," "kidney disease,"
as the case may be.
Rut the real" reading of the certificate
.STARVED TO DEATH,
The truth of this statement is appar
ent. The body is sustained by food
digestfd and assimilated. But the body
is mad? up of its parts and organs, aud
when the stomach is "weak," digestion
imperfect, and the nutrition extracted
front food inadequate to the needs of the
boily, the. result is shared by every part
and organ of the body, l'or this reason
no man is stronger than ht3 stomach,
and no organ -sustained by the stomach
can be stronger than the stomach.
Therefore when we hear of "weak"
stomach we arc pretty sure we arc going
to hear in time of " weak " heart, " weak"
lungs, "weak" kidnevs, or weakness of
some other organ of the body dependent
on the ftomach aud its associated organs
of digestion and nutrition.
Notv these things bting true when a
man has heart " trouble," liver " trouble,"

kidney "trouble," etc., where is the first
pi nee to look for the cause of the dis
ease? Why, where else can it be but
the stomach ? The most probable cause
of these forms of "weakness" is defici
ent ttutrition resulting from the " weak '
condition of the stomach and other
organs of digestion and nutrition. And
if these diseases of henrt, liver, lungs,
kidneys, etc., begin in the stomach they
must be cured through the stomach.
IT'S AN r.VKRY DAV AFFAIR
to receive letters reporting the cure of
diseased kidneys, weak heart, torpid
liver, or lung "trouble " through the use
of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
But one may say, "'Golden Medical
Discovery ' is a medicine for the stom
ach and blood, in particular."
Exactly so. And that is why it cures
diseases remote from the stomach but
which have their origin in disease of the
stomach and other organs of digestion
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov
ery cures diseases of the stomach and
digestive and nutritive
I systems. The food taken
I into the body is then con-
sJ verted into nutrition
4VJ which is supplied to
heart, lungs, kidneys, and
other organs which are
made strong by nutrition.
Disease is thrown off.
New strength comes to
every tissue nnd fiber of
"I suffered for four
j ears with pain in my
stomach so that at times
I couldn't work nor eat,"
writes Mr. Frank Smith.of
Granite, Chaffee CoColo.
" I wrote to you about my
sickness ana wns told to
use vour medicine, which
I dfd with good results.
I only used four bottles
of your 'Golden Medical
Discovery,' and must say
that I am entirely cured,
and feel like a new man,
and I can highlv recom
mend your medicine to
"I was troubled wittt
malarial fever of about three years'
standing and was under doctors care
for quite a time," writes Mr. J. I-. Kidd,
of Parmleysville, Wayne County, Ky.
"They had almost given me up, and my
suffering was very great. My pulse was
weak, breath short and I had severe paius
in back, head and legs. Had palpitation
of heart, and from June 1st, 1895, to
May 1st, 1898, 1 was not able to do a
day's work. I purchased five bottles of
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery,
and before I had finished taking the first
two bottles I was very much better of
my disease of three years' standing. I
continued taking the medicine, and by
the lime- the fifth bottle was gone I was
a well man. I can cheerfully recom
mend Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery to any similar sufferer."
"In iSe)S, one cf my daughters was
suffering on account of a severe cough,
hectic fever, wasting of flesh and other
symptoms of diseaseu lungs," writes Rev.
Joseph H. I'esperman, of Darium Springs,
Iredell Co., N. C. " I promptly gave her
Dr. U. V. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery, with gratifying success, and she
now enjoys excellent health. This ex
perience caused me to recommend Dr.
Pierce's medicines to my neighbors, who,
without exception, used them with fa
vorable results. This being true, I here
by heartily endorse your medicines."
"Vour book, the 'People's Common
Sense Medical Adviser,' is all that one
could wish," writes Mrs. S. J. Simpson,
of 151 South Fourth Street, San Jose,
California, "and more than could be ex
pected in one volume. It is simply
grand, aud should be in every home."
