Hbundant success in all hia undertak

physical stature, like Saul, when he
was crowned kin of Israel, and in all
the land there is none more comely.
His mind i like his bod, larRe and
strong, and well disciplined. He is a
philosopher and a statesman, and has
nothing of the spread-eaglo style, so
Itopular before the war. He is Just the
iiud of mn the people now want in a
representative at the national capi

conciliatory; a man calculated to bring
altouta better stateol feeling between
the sections latoly at war, by hi wis

A healthy liver secretes each day about two
and a half pounds of bile, which contains a
great amount of waste material taken from the
blood. When the liver becomes torpid or con
gested. i,t fails to eliminate tbis vast amount
of noxious substance, which, therefore remains
to poison the blood and be conveyed to every
part of the system. What must be tt) condi

. M tbeir natural functions, and cannot
long withstand tbe pressure, but become vari
ously diseased. Tbe brain, which U the gieat
electrical centre of all vitality, is unduly stim
ulated by the unhealthy blood which passes
to it from tbe heart, and it fills to perform its
office healthfully. Hence the symptoms of bile
po'soning, which are dullness, headache, inca
pacity to keep tbe mind on any subject, impair
ment of memory, dizzy, sleepy, or nervous
feelings, gloomy forebodings and irritability of
temper. The blood itself being diseased as it
forms tbe sweat upon the surface of the skin,
it is so irritating and poisonous that it produ
ces discolored brown spou, pimples, blotches
and other eruptions, sores, boils, carbuncles
and scofulous tumors. The escape becoming
affected sooner or later, and costiveness. piles,
dropsy, dyspepsia, diarrhea, female weakness
and many other forms of chronic disease, are
among tbe necessary results. As a remedy for
all these various manifestations of disease, Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discoverj is positive

changed to an active, healthy state, the appetite
regulated and restored, t!.e blood and secre
