Paine's Celery Compound has ac
complished more in behalf of suffering
humanity than any other discovery In
tho history of medical science. It has
rescued from a sick lied thousands of
despairing victims of disease. Men
and women in all walks of life have
been permanently cured by its use.
Old anil young, the feeble and the In
firm, praise its curative powers. It is
tlie one true nerve tonic. If taken in
time, it never falls to restore to activ
ity weakened kidneys and a sluggish
liver. The body has been made foul
and unhealthy with impure blood and
bile that originate hi a diseased liver.
Cirrhosis, jaundice, fatty degeneration,
cancer and dropsy often result fioni a
diseased liver. The appetite Is Im
paired, tlie blood Is filled witli poison

low, ellgestlon is deranged, a morbid
condition arises, emaciation sets In
followed by a general feeling of debil

a diseased liver. The liver, stomach
and kidneys are tho great nerve cen
tres. Paine's Celery Compound never
falls to restore them to healthy and
vigorous action. 11 purifies the blood,
tones up the system, eradicates all poi
sons, nourishes and invigorates muscle
tissues and keeps the body healthy and
free from l'oul impurities. Paine's
Celery Compound gives immediate and
permanent relief to all who suffer from
a disordered liver.
