Is assured you when yoti^uf IbnlMf Dr. Pierce's Family Medicines
for all the ingredients entering into them are printed on the bottle-
wrappers and their formula are attested under oath as being complete
and correct. You know just what you are paying for and that the in-
gredients are gathered from Nature's laboratory, being selected from
the most valuable natiye,4niedicinal roots found growing in our Ameri-
can forests. While potent to cure they are perfectly harmless even to
the most delicate women and children.
Not a drop of alcohol enters into their composition. A much better
agent is used both for extracting and preserving the medicinal principles
used in them, viz.-r-pure triple-refined glycerine of proper strength.
This agent possesses intrinsic medicinal properties of its own, being a
most valuable anti-septic and anti-ferment, nutritive and soothing
Glycerine plays an important part in br. Pierce's Golden Med-
ical discovery in the cure of indigestion, dyspepsia and weak stomach,
attended by sour risings, "heartburn," foul breath, coated tongue, poor
appetite, gnawing feeling in stomach, biliousness and kindred derange-
ments of the stomach, liver and bowels.
Besides curing all the above distressing ailments, the "Golden Med-
ical Discovery is a specific for all diseases of the mucous membranes,
as catarrh, whether of the nasal passages or of the stomach, bowels or
pelvic organs. Even in its ulcerative stages it will yield to this sover-
eign remedy if its use be persevered in. In Ghronic Catarrh of the
Nasal passages, it is well, while taking the "Golden Medical Discovery
for the necessary constitutional treatment, to cleanse the passages freely
two or three times a 4ay^with Br: Sages Catarrh Remedy. This
thorough course of treatment generally cures even in the worst cases.
In coughs and hoarseness caused by bronchial, throat and lung
affections.vexcept consumption in its advanced stages, the "Golden
Medical Discovery "is a most efficient remedy, especially in those obsti-
nate, hang-on-coughs caused by irritation and congestion of the bron-
chial mucous membrane^ The "Discovery" is not so good for acute
coughs arising from sudden colds, nor must it be expected to cure con-
sumption in its advanced stagesno medicine will do thatbut for all
the obstinate hang-on, or chronic coughs, which, if neglected,.or badly
treated, lead up to consumption, it is the best medicine that can be taken.
If the sweet taste of the "Discovery," caused by the glycerine, is
disliked, a few drops ofiemon juice, orange or lime juice, added to each
dose will make it agreeable and pleasant and will not in the slightest
interfere with its benefical effects.
It's an insult to your intelligence for a dealer to endeavor to
palm off upon you some nostrum of unknown composition in place of Dr.
Pierce's world-famed medicines which are OF KNOWN COMPOSITION.
Most dealers recommend Dr. Pierce's medicines because they know
what they are made of and that the ingredients employed are among
the most valuable that a medicine for like purposes can be made of.
The same is true of leading physicians who do not hesitate to recom-
mend them, since they know exactly what they contain and that their
ingredients are the very best known to medical science for the cure of
the several diseases for which these medicines are recommended.
With tricky dealers it is different
Something else that pays them a little greater profit will be urged
upon you as "iust as good," or even better. You can hardly afford to
accept a substitute of unknown composition and without any particular
record of cures in place of Dr. Pierce's medicines which are OF KNOWN
COMPOSITION and have a record of forty years of cures behind them.
You know what you want and it is the dealer's business to supply that
jyant. Insist upon it.

BY THE PRESIDENT
Entire Battalion of Negro Soldierssault
Dismissed in Disgrace for
Washington, Nov.' 7.Unprecedented
in the history of the army of the
United States is the action oi the presi
dent, just announced, .in dismissing in
disgrace from that army an entire Dat
tahon of negro troops because of their
failure to disclose the identity of some
of their number who had been guilty
of violence and murder.
A an evidence, however, of his in
tention to be fair to the negro troops,
the president has accompanied this
action by an order which may amount
to the courtmartial of a white army
officer of high grade. (Colonel "William
L. Pitcher) who was charged with
having cast slurs upon the colored
The story of both actions is told in
official correspondence made public by
the military secretary.
The correspondence is as follows:
"The report of an investigation
made by Brigadier General E A. Gar
lington, inspector general of the army,
relative to the riotous disturbance that
occurred at Brownsville, "Tex., on the
night of Aug. 13, 1906, and that result
ed'in the death of one and the wound
ing of another citizen of that city, has
been considered and. acted: upon by the
president. Following nre his instruc
tions with'regard to the matter:
The White House^ Washington,

dation of General Garlington be com
plied with, and thai at the same time
the concluding portion of his report, be
published with our sanction as giving
the reasons for the action.
Recommended by Garlington.
Following is the concluding portion
of General Garlington's report, which
embodies the recommendation that, by
direction of the president, willl be car
ried into effect immediately byithe war

ever debarring them from re-enlisting
in the army or navy of the United
StateSj as well as from employment in
any. civil capacity under^ the govern
ment. In making this recommendation,
I recognize the fact thatVa number of

that the firing into the houses of the
citizens of Brownsville while the inhab

chief of police so seriously wounded
that he lost an arm, was done by enlist

"*A fotceful lesson should be given
to the army at large, and especiallv to
the non-commissioned officers, that their
duty does not cease upon the drill
ground with the calling of the company
rolls, making cheek inspections, and
other duty of formal character, but
that their responsibilities of office ac

times that it is their duty to become

members of their respective units to
know their characteristics to be able
at all times to gage their temper, in

anticipate any organized act of dis

feel assured that the men wearing the
uniforms of the army are their protect

Case of Colonel Pitcher.
'On Get.-5, 1906, a squadron /of the
Ninth cavalry, an organization of col
ored troops, reported at Fort Sheridan,
near Chicago, 111. under orders from
the war department assigning them to
duty there. Soon after this assignment
there appeared in the public press the
following account op a statement al
leged to have been made with regard
to the matter. by Cpfcsnel William L.
Pitcher. Twenty-seventh infantry.
'rph negro troops would never
have been quartered^, at Fort Sheridan
without a protest if ittwas to remain in
command here," saM Colonel Pitcher.
I never liked them, and the, farther
away from me they are kept tfte better
it pleases me. For tn^life of raeI can
not see why the United States should
try to make soldiers, out of them. Cer
tainly there are enough fine white
young men in this big country to make
soldiers of without recruiting from such
Little Better Than Negroes.
'This alleged statement by Colonel
Pitcher having been brought to the at
tention of the president, the following
communication with regard to it was
sent to the war department by Secre
"'The' president directs that an im
mediate report be called for from Colo
nel Pitcher, tp. .know whether or not
he is correctly quoted in the enclosed
clipping, and if he si correctly quoted
the president^ directs that proceedings
be taken against him for such punish

thinks that such conduct is but little
better than that of the offending negro
troops themselves. Very truly yours,
