A Young Man Who Mis?
takenly Believed He
Had Hpart Disease.
He Simply Scared Himself to
Death, for His Heart Was
Sound?What a Pity He Did
Not Take Proper ^dvice 1
A dramatic story is told of a young man
In Chicago who believed he had heart dis?
ease. Ho abstained from exercise and he
avoided excitement. Ho dosed himself iicr
sistently and imagined that only by lending
an invalid's life coidd he hope to keep death
at arm's length. One day lie suddenly met
a woman who had been associated with a
discreditable chapter in his history.
"My God! my heart!" cried the young
man, and ho fell nt her feet stone dead.
An autopsy showed that his heart was
absolutely sound. It was the opinion of
(lit: physicians that lie might have lived to
a ripe old age if he had taken the precau?
tion to consult a competent specialist.
The time when a physician was laughed
at for devoting himself to one brunch of his
profession is past. So broad is the field of
medical knowledge that no one man can
hope to cultivate it all. The seven great
men whose portraits accompany this articles
have earned the. undying gratitude of the
world by their work ns specialists.
Notice that the frame of the pictures is a
"5" preceded by a dollar mark. Five dol?
lars is a great or a small sum, according to
circumstances. One thing is certain : a IIve?
il ollar hill never looks quite so small as when
it is considered as the price of n complete
diagnosis and full treatment by medical
specialists of the highest rank.
Do you think Hie tiling is Impossible?
The Warner Nazaro Medicine Co.. of New
York City, has made it possible. At the bead
of tin-company Is Mr. H. II. Warner, wdio
made himself famous several years ago by the
perfection of a remedy for discuses of tlio

usefulness i?y organizing n staff of specialists,
whose services tire placed within the reach
of a vast public who otherwise would have

Last November Mr. Joseph James,
painter, of 325 W. Pearl St., Indianapo?
lis, Intl., was nt death's door with quick
consumption. Wasted to n skeleton;
his lungs a mass of ulcerntion; his
death was hourly awaited by his doctor
iiid family. He was kept in a constant
stupor with opium. A friend, thinking
lo relieve his terrible cough, gave hiina
bottle of Brazilian Balm, Seeing its
wonderful effect, the doctor advised its
continued use. Mr. James soon a/te'r
dismissed his doctor, anil depended
on the Ralm alone. His recovery was
rapid and complete, anil in February he
returned to work. His ilinga tire sound,
and his weight grenter than nt any time
in Iiis life. His recovery is regarded as
almost a miracle.
In consumption beware of cough mix?
tures and prescriptions that contain
opium. Opium paralizes the nerves,
ami gives the comma bacillus a good
chance to destroy the lungs. It is
always fatal. Brazilian Balm does not
contain :t trace of any opiate, but stimu?
lates nie nerves with new life and power,
destroys the microbe, and restores all
that is left of the diseased lurgs to a.
sound ami healthy state which no. other'
remedy has ever been known to accoin1-'
