New Way of Using1 Chamberlain's
Mr. Arthur Chapman writing fiom
Durban, Natal, South Africa, says; "As
a pi oof that Chamberlain's Cough Hem
edy Is a cure sultablo for old and young,
I pen you the following; A neighbor of
mine had a child Just over two mouths
old. It had a very bad cough and the
parents did not know what to give it.
I suggested that If they would get a
bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Hemedy
and put some upon the dummy teat the
baby was sucking It would no doubt
cure the child. This they did and
brought about a quick relief and cured
the baby," This remedy Is for sule by

Imagine a monster sixty feet in

it is still a harmless looking creature. And yet where tho monster of tlio

I One of tho mightiest of modern monsters is tho Grippe germ. Cities that
couiu ueai oacK armies uavq ueen practically overcome by this microscopio
organism. Men, women and children tro down before it all to suffer.
many to succumb. As a rule, Grippo only successfully attacks those who are
debilitated and weak. Others throw off tho disease readily. Tt is notable that
Grippe is most prevalent and most fatal in tho spring when atmospheric condi
tions are most suitable to the propagation of the disease, and the human sys
tem less able to resist its attacks. In winter tho open air exercise is reduced,
the air of the home is usually over-hqated, and very often impure, and tho body
heavily fed and heavily clothed, becomes enervated. A few months of this life '
lowers the tone of tho body and spring finds it ill conditioned to resist tho
attack of disease. That is why Grippe reaps its harvest in the early spring.
What can bo done to overcome the conditions which make the body tho easy
prey of Grippe and kindred diseases ? Strengthen it. Tone it up. Purify
tlio blood. Stir up tho sluggish liver. Put the whole body on the fighting
footing of sound health. To accomplish this thoroughly and permanently
requires a reliable tonic and blood purifying medicine, which is found in
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.
"Last spring I had a severe attack of La Grippe," writes Miss Ency M. Van Wey, of
Mitchellcrcek, Tioga Co., Pa., "ifnd wis under treatment of one of the best physicians
in this part of the country from March until in July, and although benefited by his treat
ment, yet I was left in a miserable condition. Nervous prostration seemed to be the
leading trouble ; was very despondent, would awake mornings with a dull pain over my
eyes, had bilious headache a great share of the time ; great distress after eating, stomach
would bloat and I was very weak. The least exertion would completely tire me out. I
was advised to try Dr. R. V. Pierce's medicines. I wrote a letter of consultation to the
doctor and received a prompt and very satisfactory reply. I immediately bought a bottle
of 'Golden Medical Discovery,' one of ' Favorite" Prescription ' and a vial of Dr. Pierce's
Pellets, and took them as directed. By the time I had taken two-thirds of these medi
cines I felt such a decided change for the better that I bought half a dozen bottles more,
three of ' Golden Medical Discovery ' and three of 'Favorite Prescription.' Now I can
truly say that I feel better than in five years before. One by one my symptoms gradu
ally disappeared. No more weakness, despondency nor blues. Am well and happy, and
I truly thank God that Dr. Pierce has been permitted to live to prepare and send out
such valuable medicines for the relief of suffering humanity.
"I would say to all sufferers, -Write immediately to the World's Dispensary Medical
Association, then give Dr. Pierce's medicines a thorough trial.' "
The debilitated condition which results from an attack of Grippe is not a
mere superficial feeling, but a serious fact. In such a weak condition the sys
tem easily falls a prey to any stray germs of disease which may attack tho
body, and for this reason thqsc who recover from an attack of Grippo often
tall victims to pneumonia or consumption. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery meets every demand of the debilitated system at this crisis of health.
It cleanses the blood of poisonous accumulations. It increases the activity of
the blood-making glands, so increasing the supply of pure, rich blood which
feeds and strengthens every organ of the body. It heals tho diseased tissues
of the throat and lungs, and restores tho body to perfect and permanent health.
"A word for your 'Golden Medical Discovery,' " writes Mrs. E. A. Bender, of Keene,
Cochocton Co., Ohio. "We have been using it as a family medicine for more than four
years. As a cough remedy and blood purifier there is nothing better, and after having
the Grippe Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is just the right medicine for a com
plete building up."
"Three years ago I had the Grippe," writes Mrs. Tillic
m"Vi " vjiavc cwic-v:ii, iviauuu u., Jvy. "j.i scmeu
on my lungs and the doctor said I had consumption. I
took six bottles of 'Golden Medical Discovery,' aud am
thankful to say I am entirely well."
Sick people, especially those suffering from
chronic diseases, aro invited to consult Dr. Pierce,
by letter, free, and so obtain, without charge, tho
opinion of a specialist on their ailments. All cor
