The Most Astonishing Medical Discovery of
the Last One Hundred Years. '
It Is Pleasant to the Taste as the Sweetest Nectar.
It is Safe and Harmless as the Purest Milk.
This wonderful Nemn'e Tonic has only recently been introduced into
this country by tne lireat bouth American Medicine Company, and yet its
great value as a curative agent has long been known by the native inhab
itants of South America, who rely almost wholly upon its great medicinal
powers to cure every form of disease by which they are overtaken.
This new and valuable South American medicine possesses powers and
qualities hitherto unknown to the medical profession. , This medicine has
completely solved the problem of the cure of Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Liver
Complaint, and diseases of the general Nervous System. It also cures all
forms bf failing health from whatever cause. It performs this by the Great
Nervine Tonic qualities which it possesses and by its great curative powers
upon the digestive organs, the stomach, the liver and the bowels. No remedy
compares with this wonderfully valuable Nervine Tonic as a builder and
Etrengthener of the life forces of the human body and as a great renewer of
n broken down constitution. It is also of more real permanent value in the
treatment and cure of diseases of the Lungs than any ten consumption rem
edies ever used on this continent It is a marvelous cure for nervousness
of females of all ages. Ladies who are approaching the critical period known
as change in life, should not fail to use this great Nervine Tonic almost
constantly for the space of two or three years. It will cany them Bafely
over the danger. This great strengthener and curative is of inestimable
value to the aged and infirm, because its great energizing properties will
give them a new hold on life. It will add ten or fifteen years to the lives of
many of those who will use a half dozen bottles of the remedy each year.

Let the GnlsRomp.
Most mothers have' a dread
romps; so they lecture the girls daily
on the proprieties, and exhort them
to be little ladies. They like to see
them very quiet and gentle, and as
prim as possible. The lot of such
children is rather pitable, for they
are deprived of the fun and frolic
which they are entitled to.
Children boys and girls must
have exercise to keep them healthy.
Deprive them of it, and they will
fade away like flowers without sun
shine. Running, racing, skipping,
climbing these are the things that
strengthen the muscles,expand the
chest, and build up the nerves. The
mild dose of exercise taken in the
nursery, with calisthenics or gymnas
tics will not invigorate the system
like a good romp in the open air.
Mothers, therefore, who counsel
their little girls to play very quietly
make a" mistake. Better the laugh
ing rosy-cheeked, romping girl, than
the pale, lily-faced one, who is called
every inch a lady. The latter rarely
breaks things or tears her dresses j or
tires her mother's patience, as the
former ddesp but after all, what, does
the fekring and breaking' amount to?
It is not a wise policy to ' pud an old
head on j young shoulders. Child
hood Vthetime for childish pranks
aud plays. The girl will grow into
womanhood soon enough.'' Let theui
be children as long as they can. Give
them plenty of fresh air and sunlight,
and let them run and romp as much
as they please. .-
By all means give ushearty.healthy
romping -girls, rather than pale
faced little ladies, condemned from
their very cradles to nervousness,
headache, and similar ailments.

M. Louise Ford, in February 'Wide-Awake,
Do any of our young people ever
query how'the dividing line between
the United States and . the Dominion
of Canada is marked, and how trav
elers in those wild regions northwest
of the Great Lakes can tell when
they step from the domains of Uncle
Sam into those of Queen Victoria?
For many years the question of
boundary between the United States
and the possessions of , Great Britain
was discussed, and at east, at the
Convention of London held in 1818,
the, forty-ninth parallel of north lati
tude was decided upon. A parallel
of latitude, however, being an imagi
nary line, is a very poor guiue to a
traveler, so the next thing to do was
to mark that line so that all who
passed that, way should know where
it ., was located. Accordingly the
country in that vicinity wassurveyed
and monuments were set up at even
mile intervals, the.. British placing
one between every two of ours.
These extend from the Lake of the
Woods to the Rocky Mountains.
Where the line enters forests the
timber is cut down, and the ground
cleared JLJ'ard wide; where it crosses
under water and eight above; in oth
er places earth mounds seven by
fourteen feet have been built. -
The most of these" monuments,
which number three hundred and
eighty-eight in all, are of iron. It
was found that the most solid wood
en posts were not proof against the
It is astonishing how many people
there are who neglect punctuality.
Thousands have failed in life from
this cause alone. It is not only a se-
rions vice in itself, but it is the fruit
ful parent of numerous other vices,
so that he who becomes the victim
of it gets involved in toils from which
it is almost impossible to escape. , It
makes the merchant wasteful of time;
it saps the business reputation of the
lawyer, and it injures the prospects
of the mechanic, who might other
wise rise to fortune; in a word, there
is not a profession, nor u station
life, which is not liable to the canker
of the destructive habit.
It is a fact not always remembered,
that Napoleon's great victories were
won by infusing into his subordinates
the necessity of punctuality to the
minute. It was his plan to manrru
vre over large spaces of country po
as to render the enemy uncertain
where he was about to strike a blow,
and then suddenly to concentrate his
forces and fall with irresistible pow
er on some weak point of the exten
ded lines of the foe.
In mercantile affairs, punctuality
i3 as important as in military. Many
are me instances in wnien tne neg
lect to renew an insurance punctual
ly has led to serious loss. With
sound policy do the banks Insist,
under the penalty of a protest on the
payment of notes, for
were they to do otherwlse.commercia!
transactions would fall into inextrica
ble confusion. Many a time
has the failure of one man to meet
his obligations brought on the ruin
of a score of others just as the toppling

To the Great South American Medicine Co. :
Dear Gents : I desire to say to you that I
have suffered lor many years with a very seri
ous disease of the stomach end nerves, f tried
every medicine I could hear of but nothing
done me any appreciable good until I was ad
vised to try your Great South Americaa Nerviue
Tonic ana Stomach and Liver Cure, and since
using several bottles of it I must say that I am
surprised at Its wonderful powers to cure tho
stomach and general nervous system. If every
one knew the value of this remedy as I do, you
would not be able to supply the demand.

Mr. Solomon Bond, a member of the Society
of Friends, of DarUnRton, Ind., says: "1 have
used twelve bottles of Tho Great South Ameri
can Nervine Tonio and Stomach and Liver Curt
and I consider that every bottle did for mo ono
hundred dollars worth of good, because I have
not had a good night's sleep for twenty years
ou account of irritation, pain, horrible dreams,
and general nervous prostration, which has
been caused by chronic indigestion and dys
pepsia of the stomach and by a broken down
condition of my nervous system. But now I can
lie down and sleep all-n ight as sweetly as a baby,
and I feel like a sound man. I do pot think
there has ever been a medicine introduced into
this country which, will at all compare with
this h'trviae Tunic as a cure for the stomach."
A SWORN CURE FOR ST. VITUS'S DANCE OR CHOREA.
Ckawtordsville, Ind., May 19, 1886.
My daughter, twelve years old, had been af
flicted for several months with Chorea or St.
Vitus's Dance. She was reduced to a skeleton,
could not walk, could not talk, could not swal
low anything but milk. I had to handle her
like aa infant. Doctor and neighbors gave her
up. I commenced giving her the South Ameri
can Nervine Tonio: the effects were very sur
prising. In three days she was rid of the ner
vousness, and rapidly improved. Four bottles
cured her completely. I think the South
American Nervine the grandest remedy ever
discovered, and would recommend it to every
one. Mbs. W, B. Eksmikqer.
