The great success of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery in curing weak stomachs, wasted bodies, weak
lungs, and obstinate and lingering coughs, is based on
the recognition of the fundamental truth that "Golden
Medical Discovery" supplies Nature with body-build
ing, tissue-repairing, muscle-making materials, in con
densed and concentrated form. With this help Nature
supplies the necessary strength to the stomach to digest
food, build up the body and thereby throw off lingering
obstinate coughs. The "Discovery" re-establishes the
digestive and nutritive organs in sound health, purifies
and enriches the blood, and nourishes the nerves-in
short establishes sound vigorous health.
If your dealer offers something "last as good,"
it Is probably better FOR HIMi..it pays better.
But you are thinking of the cure not the profit, so
there's nothing "lust as good" for you. Say so.

BEVERAGE FOR SUMMER TIME
How to Make Tea Punch, a Refresh.
Ing Drink If It is Mixed With
Tea punch is a much used bever
age for summer porch, tennis and golf
teas, and properly made is most re
freshing. For a quantity of punch
make a quart of rich, heavy sugar
syrup, and while hot pour over one
cupful of orange juice, one cupful of
pineapple juice and half a cupful of
strawberry or currant or raspberry or
cherry juice or a mixture of these if
preferred. Let stand until cool, then
add one cupful of chopped ice to thor
oughly chill. Meanwhile make one pint
of strong tea, using a mixture of Eng
lish breakfast and Orange Pekoe tea
if possible. The strength should be
given by the proportion of tea used
and not by the length of time the wa
ter stands on the leaves. Take a full
teaspoonful of tea for each cupful of
water and let this water be freshly
boiled and just come to a boil. The
utmost care must be used in makiing
this tea, for the success of the punch
depends upon the flavor of the tea
which should be there supporting the
fruit flavors, yet without astringency
or perhaps actual detection as tea.

MUNYON'S STOMACH TREAT
Munyon Tells You How to Get Well
Free of Charge.
A few days ago I received a letter
from a young man, who states he is 28
years of age, and has occupied several
important positions, but owing, to indi
gestion and inability to sleep he has
been unable to concentrate his mind
upon his work and has consequently
been discharged on the ground of neg
lect of duty. He goes on to say that
he is a young man of steady habits,
but for years he has suffered from dys
pepsia, which has so affected his nerves
that he is unable to sleep, 'and that it
is not neglect upon his par';, nor lack
of interest, but simply physical weak
ness. Ioe asks my advice in this mat
For the benefit of a large number of
those similarly situated I propose to
answer this letter publicly, hoping that
it may be the means of helping many
who may be affected in this way.
In the first place, the stomach must
be well before the nerves can be made
strong. The nerves must be made
strong before one can sleep well. No
one is calpable of doing his best who is
in any way troubled with insomnia or
any form of nervousness. The great
est generals have been men of iron
nerve and indomitable will. They have
had perfect digestion, being able to cat
well and digest all they ate.
It is said Napoleon lost the battle of
Waterloo because of a fit of indiges
tion. Grant's enormous reserve power
was due to a well stomach. Abraham
Lincoln said that he "did not know
that lie had a stomach." Grover Cleve
land, it is said, could work 18 hours a
day, eat a hearty meal at 2 or 3 o'clock
in the morning, go to bed and sleep
soundly until 9 o'clock and get up re
freshed, ready for a new day's work.
President Taft is another type of a
healthy manhood. Who thinks for one
moment that he would be the president
of the United States today had he been
a dyspeptic or affected with some nerv
ous ailment? I claim that two-thirds
of all the failures in professional and
business life are due to weak and de
No business house would care to em
ploy a dyspeptic representative to sell
goods for them on the road. One-half
of the men who stand behind counters
today, earning from $12 to $15 a week,
will never get beyond these-figures, for
the reason that they are physically
weak. They lack the nerve power and
commanding strength that come from a
good sound stomach.
No one cares to hear a dyspeptic
preacher. No matter how pious lie may
be, lie is bound to reflect his bilious
and jaundiced condition. liHe will uni
consciously inoculate his hearers with
his melancholy feelings.
No one would think of entrusting an
important legal case in the hands of a
dyspeptic lawyer, any more than he
would care to entrust his own life, or
that of a dear one in the hands of a
physician who is nervous, irritable or
a dyspeptic. Men must have good di
gestion, strong nerves and vital man
hood in order to render a clean, clear

GREAT CHASM BEING SPANNED
Steel Bridge Built Entirely Without
the Aid of False Work or Side
Seattle, Wash.-One hundred and
fifty feet above a rushing stream
whose depth rendered the usual sup
ports impossible, a steel bridge, dif
fering in construction from any built
in the past, is nearing completion for
the use of the Idaho and Washington
Northern railroad. It is located near
Box canyon, this state, and will ex
tend from cliff to cliff across the Pend

dred and thirty feet deep, and in
places bottom has never been reached.
As the illustration shows, the bridge
is being built entirely without the aid
of false work or side supports. So
far it has been balanced by weighting
the shore span with 600 tons of steel
rails. When finally completed, the
bridge will weigh more than one thou
sand tons, and it will be the longest
span of its kind.
The way in which American en
gineers have met and solved the dut

in carrying the trans-continental ratil
roads across the Rocky mountains has
challenged the admiration of the
world. In many cases they have been
forced to methods of construction
heretofore deemed impossible, and
their success has set a new engineer

SHE. WORKS FOR THE QUEEN
Little Old Woman Who Is a Skilled
Lacemaker In the North of
London.-In a little cottage in the
pastoral village of Shelton, near Rush
den, in Northamptonshire Mrs. Jane
Morris, a little old woman, put forth
every energy to complete an assign

Morris was to have a certain number
of yards of wonderful lace ready for
her majesty's use on the occasion ol
the coronation, and it was done on
The lace is known as Bedfordshire

an a full day to make three-quarters
of an inch of it. It is five inches wide
and it requires 184 bobbins to work
out the design.
Just what Mrs. Morris was paid is
not known, but it stands to reason
that after having such an assignment
from the queen she will have no cause
to fear the workhouse or to ask the
government for an old-age pension.
Growth of Y. M. C. A.
London.-According to returns made
to the world's committee of the Y. M.
C. A. there are now 8,340 associa
tions with a membership of 897,000.
There was an increase of 300 asso
ciations during the last year. Of the
property owned by the association the
American branches have $60,000,000
out of a total of $77,000,000; of the
salaried officers, 2,900 out of 35,000.
Germany has the largest number of
associations, 2,300; America ranks sec
ond, with 2,000. The German mem
bership, however, is only 128,000,
while the American rolls show 496,500
names. Great Britain is in second
place with a membership of 147,000.
America leads in its extension work
in foreign lands, for which it spends
$200,000 and maintains 100 secretaries.
