A sick ttao is like
man who jroes op in
balloon. He is blown
hither and thither by
the winds of disease.
A traveler by rail or
steamer has a regular
track. He is reasona
bly certain of reaching
9 f a griven destination;
ywJ bnt the balloonist is at
the merer of totally
uncertain elements. No track, no course,
no rodder, no certainty that any breeze may
not brintr destruction.
So with the sick man. His disordered
constitution readers every natural operation
uncertain, jno organ fi oe aepenaea on
to do its normal wor'... stomach will
not digest food; the liver not filter bil
ious poisons from the blood; the kidneys
and skin will not excrete the waste. No
regular nourishing or purifying process is
going on. There is no certainty except tne
certainty of suffering.
In all dyspeptic, bilious, deomtatea con
ditions, what is needed is to change the ab
normal, erratic operations of the system
into a natural, regular, straigdttorwara pro
gress in the right direction. Nothing in the
world will do this so rapidly and certainly
as Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.
It directly regulates the vitalizing func
tions. It sets the stomach and liver into
natural, healthy operation and gives the
blood-making glands power to manufacture
an abundance of pure, rich blood.
It creates appetite; bunas up muscular
strength, and banishes nervousness and
neuralgia. As it can be assimilated by the
weakest stomach, its nourishing properties
are far superior to nauseating cod liver oil
in severe coughs and all wasting diseases.

his extra profit on the "just as good " kind
