Select Councilman-elect Dunne W.
Humphrey, of the Second ward, won
it haudsomo victory In his election on
Tuesday, helng chosen from a ward
which Is perhaps the most closely di

"I was afflicted with what the doc
tors called nervous indigestion. Took ,
medicine front my family physician
to no avail. In looking over one of
Dr. Pierce's Memorandum Hooks,"
writes Mr. Thos. G. Lever, of Lever,
Richland Co., S. C, "I found my case
described exactly. IT wrote to you and
made a statement. You sent ine a
descriptive list of questions, also hy
gienic,' rules. I carried these out as
best I could, but I thought myself in
curable, as I suffered so much with
pain under my ribs and an empty
feeling in my stomach. At night
would have cold or hot feet and
hands, alternately. I was getting
very nervous and suffered a great
deal mentally, thinking that death
would soon claim me. Always ex
pected something unusual to take
place ; was irritable and impatient,
and great- reduced in flesh. I could
scarcely eat anything that would not
produce a bad feeling in my stomach.
After some hesitation, owing to my
prejudices against patent medicines
1 decided to try a few bottles of Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
and ' Pellets.' After taking several
bottles of each, found I was improv
ing. I continued for six moutiis or
more, oft' and on. I have to be care
ful yet, at times, of what I cat, in
orde'r that I may feel good and strong.
1 fully believe if anyone suffering
with indigestion or torpid liver, or
chronic cold would take Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery and ' Pleas
ant Pellets.' and observe a few simple
hygienic rules, they would soon be
greatly benefited, and with u little
perseverance would be entirely cured."
Tho popular term for a disordered or dis
eased condition of tho stomach and digestive
aim liuiriuvo system is sionmci. trouble."
Like most popular phrases this is expressive. Tho
word "trouble," though it describes nothing includes
everything, from tho minor discomforts of slight in-
digestion 10 me aggravating misery oi enrome
dyspepsia, lio condition of those suffcrinn;
from disease of tho stomach in aggravated
lonns is very completely described m
tho letters o'f My, Cingmars and Mr.
Lover. Great distress -after eating,
pain in the side, nervousness, loss of
ilcsli, irritability, altcrnato cold and
heat of tho extremities ; these and
other symptoms mark the aggravated
form of disease of tho stomach and
its allied organs of digestion and nu
trition. Tho cases of these two men
aro fair specimens of those cured by
the use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery. "Family physician" and
"well-known specialist" try to cure
and fail. As a last resort, Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery is used and it
Why docs Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery cure -when other medicines fail?
J I cures because it does what it was mado
The story of .the great improvements
made in the turning lathe dates from tho
day when a tramping workman asked a
manufacturer for a job. Tho man was re
fused. As ho turned away the manufac
turer noticed that ho wore a hat turned out
of wood. "Stop," he said, "How did you
manage to turn that hat on the lathe?"
"Tt's my secret, " answered the man. "I
just fixed the lathe to do what I wanted."
Out of that ability to fix the lalho to do
what no one else hud been able to do the
man made fame and fortune.
That's ""Why 'Golden Medical Discovery'
cures when other medicines fail." Dr. Pierce
knew how to make the medicine to cure.
The reputation of the " Discovery " is built
up on the fact of cures. It was founded on
it. It rests on it. The cures are attested
by thousands of witnesses in every walk of
life. The fact is testiiied to in the perfect
health of thousands of men and women that
" Golden Medical Discovery " cures diseases
of the stomach and other organs of diges
tion and nutrition, purilies' the blood and
builds up the body with sound, healthy
If, like Mr. Lever, you hesitate to try
"Golden Medical Discovery "' because of a
" prejudice against patent medicines," do as
he did, overcome your prejudice, give the
medicine a fair and faithful trial and it will
cure you as it has cured others.
If you ask your dealer for "Golden Med
ical Discovery" because you have confi
dence in its cures, do not allow yourself to
be switched oil to a medicine claimed to be
"just as good," but which you did not ask
lor and ot which you know nothing. Insist
upon having Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery, and take nothing else.
