IS thoro anything more, fiendish than tho constant
itching of the skin which will not bo quieted ?
.Scratching is hko trying to put out a liro with
turpentine it only adds fresh fuel to tho flame. The
common cause of skin irritation is found in a diseased
condition of tho blood. For this reason washes, lo
tions, unguents, etc., though they may alleviate, can
not cradicato tho dUcase. No medicine will " como
up to tho scratch " which cannot cleanse tho blood of
tho humors and poisons which corrupt tho health of
tho wholo body.
" COULD DO NOTHING BUT
T consider your 'Golden Medical Discovery' one of the
best medicines on the face of the earth," writes William
Floeter, Esq., of Rcdoak, Montgomery Co., Iowa. "While
in the south-west three years ago I got poisoned with poison
ivy. The poison settled in my blocd and the horrors I suf
fered cannot be told in words. I thought I would go crazy.
I could do nothing but scratch. I would co to sleep scratch
ing, would wake up in the morning aud find myself scratch
ing. I scratched for eight months. Had it not been for
' Golden Medical Discovery ' I would be scratching yet. I
tried different kinds of medicine tried different doctors
but all the relief they could give me was to make my
pocket-book lighter. I called on one of the leading doctors
in a western town. He charged me one dollar; drugs cost
two dollars and a half. If I had given that money away I
would have been better off, for it did mc no good. I then
began taking Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. Took
four bottles without any relief. Kept taking it. I took in
all ten bottles and I got entirely cured. I can say that if
people would take your medicine instead of fooling with
some of the quacks that infest the small and larger towns
disease would flee like chaff before the wind."
Tho action of "Golden Medical Discovery" upon
tho blood is marked in two ways : by purifying tho
blood and so removing tho causes of disease, and by
increasing tho quantity as well a3 improving tho
quality of tho blood. This increased supply of puro
blood, rich with tho red corpuscles of health, carries
new lifo to every organ of tho body. Weak organs
aro thus strengthened and arc enabled to throw oil
tho diseases which had fastened on them. In scrof
ulous diseases the uso of " Golden Medical Discov
ery" has timo and again worked wonders, curing
sores, boils, eruptions, and other painful and dis
SIGHT ALMOST GONE.
"My little daughter when seventeen months old became
afflicted with scrofula, which affected her eyes," writes Mrs.
Agnes L. Duncan, of Mansfield, Sebastian Co., Ark. ''She
could not bear the light for over a year. We tried to cure
her eyes, hut nothing did auy good. We had our home
physician, and he advised us to take her to an oculist, as her
eyelids would have to be 'scraped.' They had become so
thick he thought she would never recover her sight. As
there was no oue else to whom we could apply my heart
sank within me. I went to your ' Common Sense Medical
Adviser,' read your treatment on scrofula, getting the prop
erties of medicines tkrrc advised. With five Iwttles of
'Golden Medical Discovery I have entirely cured my
Scrofula of the lungs is the other namo for that
diseased condition of tho lung tissues which, if neg
lected, or unskillfully treated, terminates in consump
tion. Tho many marvelous cures of " weak " lungs,
by Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, aro effected
along the samo lines as tho cures of other forms of
scrofulous disease ; by purifying tho blood from poi
sonous substances and increasing tho activity of tho
blood-making glands, so that tho blood, on which
every organ depends for vitality, is abundantly sup
plied to each dependent organ.
A MINISTER'S EXPERIENCE.
"Regarding Dr. R. V. Pierce a distinguished prince among
physicians, and the medicines you manufacture valuable re
medial agents, I desire to send you this brief, unsolicited
testimonial," writes Rev. Joseph H. Pesperman, Barium
Springs, Iredell Countv, North Carolina, "In 1898, one of
ray daughters was suffering on account of a severe cough,

There aro certain medicines which aro offered as
llood-mnkinfj medicines, but no medicine can make
a drop of blood. Blood is mado from food. Blood
is tho vital principle of tho body. Strength is bnilt
up from blood. Blood and strength aro aliko the
product of tho food wo eat. Tako away a man's
food and you tako away his life. Tako away a
man's blood and ho dies. Give a man blood and you
give him strength. The great fact is that life de
pends upon food, and on tho ability of the stomach
and organs of digestion and nutrition to extract tho
nourishment from tho food and distribute to blood,
brain and bone, tho salts, phosphates and lirao thev
" Golden Medical Discovery " cannot make a drop
of blood. It can no moro add to a man's strength
than to his stature. What it can do and what it
does is to put the stomach and organs of digestion
and nutrition into perfect working order so that the
nourishment in the food is extracted and assimilated
and mado into blood and strength.

ITS WONDERFUL WAY,
"Three years ago," writes Miss Jennie Swearingen, of 1056
Market Street, Parkersburg, West Va "I was taken with
what our family physician called typhoid fever, and was sick
for seven or eight weeks. My stomach was in a dreadful
condition and I could neither eat nor sleep. For four weeks
I drank only ice-water. I was taken clown in the same
manner the nextyear. I suffered for twoor three weeks,
and again last winter I began suffering with a pain in my
side. It kept getting worse and I had to have a doctor, and
he pronounced it a kind of malaria and Grippe. What I
suffered I could never express to anyone. I could eat noth
ing; had to lie flat onniy back and could not rise from the
bed. ICvcryoue thought I could not live. I had to be cov
ered with mustard plasters and apply hot irons, etc. I
bought two bottles of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov
ery and a vial of his ' Pellets. Took the medicines accord
ing to directions and began to improve slowly. The way it
helped my stomach was just wonderful. I still continue the
use of the medicines, and now have taken not less than six
teen bottles of 'Golden Medical Discovery' and quite a
number of the vials of the ' reliefs.'
" For catarrh I have used six bottles of Dr. Sage's Catarrh
Remedy, and am cured of that trouble also. I cannot say
nor write enough in praise of Dr. Pierce's medicines. I
know that no other medicine in the world could have bene
fited mc in the way it has. I have had no bad spell of bick
ness since I began its use, and I feel entirely well."
Tho wide range of cures performed by Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discover' may bo attributed to the
scientific method of tho treatment which cures
through tho stomach diseases which have their origin
in a diseased condition of the stomach and the allied
organs of digestion and nutrition. Blood is the life,
but blood is made from food, and the conversion of
food into nutrition depends upon the health of the
stomach and its allied organs. "Golden Medical
Discovery" heals the stomach and so removes the
contaminating cause of the blood's impurity. It
increases the activity of the blood-making glands, so
that a stream of mire, rich blood is sunnlicd. ade
quate to the nourishment of all the organs of the
body. It restores the lost appetite and builds up the
body with sound flesh instead of flabby fat. It
induces restful, refreshing sleep, and brightens the
mental faculties in correspondence with the phybical
There is no alcohol in the "Discovery" and it is
absolutely free from opium, cocaine, chloral and all
other narcotics. It can be given with as much safety
to the weakest child as to the strongest man.
your dealer for " Golden Medical Dis-
eovery " don't be turned aside from your purpose by
any oiler of "just as good " medicines. If it's any
thing else than Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dip
eovery it won't do the work which tho "Discovery"
does. Get the " Discovery " and get cured.
