price better, or that will do finer or more
wurk, and certainly none so low In prise

widely known and used In thousands of
lamilies In the eastern and middle states,
and daily becoming popular in the west.

What think you would be the result it
the ear.h should stop spinning around
the sun? Were you ever near a large and
Intricate machino when ono of its wheels
became clogged or broken near enough
to hear the grating, jarring clash, the
sudden, deafening crash? Astronomers
assure us that precisely similar effects,
only on an inconceivably grander scale,
would be produced it our earth one of
the wheels In tho universe machine
honld suddenly cease its revolutions.
In other words, there would be a general
clash and crash of satellites, planets and
systems. What we. term Qnancia crUlses
are due to similar causes. One ot the
wheels In the finance-machine becomes
clogged, perhaps shattered. The terrible
Wall street "crash" wbich follows. Is
communicated to every part of the fin
ancial mechanism ol tho country. But
analogies do not stop here. There Is
that other mechanism, tho most intricate
of all sometimes called an organism
because it generates its own forces the
human machine. When one ot its tnems
tiers tails to perform its office, the whole
system Is thrown Into disorder. Mem
ben before considered unassailable, break
down under the unnatural pressure. The
shock comes, and utter prostration is the
result. Reparation can only be effected
by tho restoration of the Impaired parts
and there-adjustment of Its levers, the
physical forces. There Is one part oi the
machine more liable to disorder than any
othor the liver, the great- balauco
wheel ot the machine.
Tho liver being the great depurating or
blood-cleansing organ of Uie system, set
it at work and the foul corruptions wbick
engender In the blood, and rot out,,as it
were, tho machinery ol life, are gradual-,
ly expelled ironi the system.
For this purpose Dr. Flerco's bolden
Medical Discovery, used dally, and Dr,
Pierce's Pleasant Purgative Pellots,

nently the articles needed.- They cure
every kind of humor, Irom the worst
scrofula to the common pimple, blotch
or eruption. Great eating ulcers kludly
heal under their mighty curative influ

in tbe system are by them robbed of
tneir terrors, ana ty their preserving
