Tub Stiujoolkh ok Lifk.?From the cradle
to the grave life is full of struggles. Some
struggle for riches, some for pleasure, some
for honor, and others struggle to regain that
greatest of all blessings ?health- ? and in their
efforts they often resort to means which places
it farther and farther out of their reoch. They
take drastic compounds, which uhook the
system, or violent minerals ^vhich poison by
degrees and thus (lie vital energies are weakened
and the very fountains of life polluted.
