Dr. Bronson, having been so far reduced bv con
sumption, as to be considered beyond all hope of re- i
covery by the most eminent of the medical profes
sion, and also by himself a regular phvsician of1
twenty years practice as a last resort, conceited
the idea of ANALYZING THE BLOOD, and applv-i
ing the subject of phvsioloffv to- the more inimedi-'
ate connection, and effect of the state of the blood
upon the health and system. The result has been
the production of this "BLOOD FOOD," from the
use of which Dr. Bronson was restored lo perfect
health. Within six mouths after its introduction,
over two thousand consumptives were effectually
cured by iU' If on have anv complaints of a con
sumptive tendency, Cough, "Cold, Head-ache, Pal
pitation of the Heart, Loss of Appetite or Pain in
the side, lose no time in procuring a bottle of the
'BLOOD FOOD." If you are suffering from Ner
vous Debility, or your sleep 1s broken and dis-
mrneu. u your spirits are depressed or vour organs '
relaxed, you will find in this an unfailing 'remedy, by :
commencing with ten drops. If your Liver is tor- !
piu or uiscaseu in any manner whatever, one or two
bottles will be sure to invigorate, and bring it into
lively and healthful action. In the most inveternte
cases of Dyspepsia tho patient can here find tho
most efficient and grateful relief. A benefit is al
waysexperienced after taking one bottle. In Male
or Female Complaints and Weaknesses, the suf
ferer, after trying other remedies in Vain, may rest
assured, that a certain cure will result from the use
of two or three bottles. The "BLOOD FOOD" is
effectual in all cases of Eruptions, Salt fihenm,
Scrofulas and other like cmnnlnints. Pale and
emaciated children and adults are immediately
benefited by its use. It gives strength to the body,
and color aud beauty to the skin. Physicians of all
schools are using il with wonderful success.

and, (if administered before tbe very citadel of life'
has been invaded,) effect a painless and perfect cure.
Bear In mind that the "Scandinavian Vegetable'
Blood Pills" are endorsed by experience of thou
sands of living witnesses, who, in letters, affidavits,'
medieal works, and by word of mouth, proclaim
them to be the very best preparation of the kind ever'
ofTesed to the broken-down victims of ill-health.
They hunt disease through every avenue and organ
of the system, and to expel it thoroughly and perma-'
No one can donbt their superiority after one single
trial they are not only netter, but, in fact, cheaper,
than any other Pills, for it takes a less number of
them to produce a better effect.
Price of the Scandinavian Vegetable Blood Puri
fier, $1 per bottle, or $5 per half dozen. Of the'
Scandinavian Vegetable Blood Pills, 25 cents per"
box, or 5 boxes for $ I.

Dr. C. W. Roback Dear Sir: I have nsed your'
Blood Purifier for a nervous affection, from which t
have suffered much at times. While it is pleasant
to the taste, it certainly has a happy effect upon the'
nerves. Please accept my thanks for your kind re-'
gards, and believe me Yours.
