Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery,
they admit that there's something wrong
about their arguments and something
wonderful about the "Discovery." It
isn't miraculous. It won't cure every

is pretty far gone with a bad cough, and

It gives the blood-making functions
power to produce a large quantity of the
nourishing red corpuscles which make
healthy life-giving blood. This stops the
