system Is disordered or diseased, there is partial failure to extract
the nutritive elements from the food, and hence the body under
goes a partial starvation. Nervousness is only a symptom of nerve
starvation. In n person whose food supply is sufficient and
regular, it indicates a disordered condition of the stomach ; a con
dition in which there is a failure to extract or assimilate from the
food eaten, the nerve-nourishing elements.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery owes its cures of nervous
diseases, and diseases of the blood, heart, liver, lungs, and other
organs, to the fact that it cures diseases of the stomach and allied
organs of digestion and nutrition.
When the "Discovery" has healed the stomach and cleansed
the blood, the other diseases disappear.

"All well all happy lots
of. fun". That is the regular
report from the monkey cage
cf Bnrnum's Circus ever since
tlve keepers began dosing the
monkeys with Scott's Emul
sion. Consumption was carry
ing off two thirds of them
every year and the circus had
to buy new ones.
One day a keeper accident
ally broke a bottle of Scott's
Emulsion near the monkey
cage and the monkeys eagcrl)
lapped it up from the floor.
This suggested the idea that it
might do them good. Since
then the monkeys have received
regular doses and the keepers
report very few deaths from
consumption. Of course it's
cheaper to buy Scott's. Emul
sion than new monkeys and
that suits the circus men.
Consumption in monkeys
and in man is the same disease.
If you have it or are threaten
