to take the reports from the cashier to

Wonderful Cures Reported in Qermanyc
The use of simple herbs as remedies instead of the more concentrated snd
usually more dangerous inorganic substances, has been revived very widely of late.
In Germany a new school of physicians has arisen which throws out almost a
whole of the pharmacopeia and relies on an adaptation of the method of wild
animals in curing themselves N. Y. World.
It was Dr. R. V. Pierce, chief consulting physician to the Invalids' Hotel and
Surgical Institute of Buffalo, N. Y., who first advocated the extended use of some
of our native roots, such : Golden seal and Oregon grape root, mandrake
and queen's root, black cherrybark. These are the chief ingredients in Doctor
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, which has been so well and favorably known
ior nearly half a century. A harmless cleanser and
stomach tonic that nature has provided.
T. Dokazj Mathesox of Ossining, N. Y. says: " I suf
fered for over five years with what the doctors told me was
dilated condition of the stomach, associated with a catar
rhal condition of same, and nervous heart. I had tried
enough nui, bismuth, gentian, rhubarb, etc, to float a ship
and naturally thought there was no core for me, but after
reading what eminent doctors said of the curative qualities
of the ingredients of 'Golden Medical Discovery' I gave it
a fair trial. Took the ' Discovery and also the 'Pleasant
Pellets,' and can truthfully say I am feeling better now
than I have in years. I cheerfully givepennisslon to print
