BE CURED OF GRIP!
The Wonderful Results Obtained in the
of Supt. Davidson.
Now, what is the grip".'
Can it be avoided or prevented-.'
And can it be cured?
Crip is characterized bv a continued
fever, bv a tendency to inflammation of
the membranes of the digestive and
often the respiratory tracts, by pain
in the muscles, and by debility.
The "Tip m individual cases vanes

forms with grave symptoms these
variations depending wholly upon the
health, age, temperament or nervous
condition of the person. Those pre
disposed to rheumatism sutler great
pain in the muscles; persons oi ner
vous temperament Income low spirit
ed, often have hysteria, and, if not
closely watched, have been known to
commit suicide. Several cases of this
scrt have been reported this month
in the newspapers. Headache is a
constant symptom. I he bowels are
enerallv constipated. Whatever
form the disease takes there is invari
ably extreme prostration. The dan
ger to persons in prevous healthful
condition is slight.
It has been absolutely proven that
there is one certain preventive of ser

The unexampled public demand for
I'aine's celery compound during the
last two months and the pro
prietors of this remedy have never
known so great a call for it has been
due to its use by thousands of people
for whom it has been prescribed by
intelligent physicians, to restore the
patient's vitality, to purify tiie blood
of the enervating poison, to l-estore
the nervous system to healthy action
and to rtrengthen the vital organs.
A person will continue to sutler
from the evil elTects of grip for many
months unless he attacks the disease
by getting rid us the unnatural, un
healthy poisons in the system, sup-,
plying" the body with new blood,
arousing the healthful action of the
kidneys, liver and digestive organs,
and nourishing and upbuilding the
over-exerted and debilitated ner

l-l'aiiie'd celery compound will do. In
the multitude of cases wnere it has
been used it has never failed.

Frank K. Davidson, who is one of the
most brilliant and best known engi
neers in the world, had just finished
the plans, for the great intercepting
sewer system of Chicago, which is to
divert the entire sewerage of the citv
from Lake Michigan through the
famous Chicago drainage canal and
down the Mississippi. Supt. Davidson
hail worked for months on this scheme.
He was well nigh exhausted and took
to his bed with an attack or the grip.
After a while the disease not having
left him, he was advised to tryl'uine's
celery compound. He was soon back
at his oflice in the department of pub-
lie works, a well man, and forthwith
wrote a letter to the proprietors of
the remedy, in which he says:
I had been told bv friends of the
wonderful results obtained by them
from the use ot l aine s celery com

the grip I determined to try it.

the perfect recoveries it has effected.
The letters come from men and worn

are so poor they cannot afford to have
this great remedy constantly in the
house, and none arc so prosperous
that for their health s sake they can
afford to be without it. When so many
men ami women whose words carry
