WHY THEY ARE HAPPY
TWO NOTABLE RECOVERI ES FROM

for Three Years, Wife a Sufferer
From Female Weakness.
"My strength had dwindled so that I
couldn't apply myself to my business
with any snap, but was tired and list
less all the time," said Mr. Goldstein.
"I went to bed completely used up
by my clay's work, and when I got up
in the morning I didn't feel rested a
bit. I bad awful headaches too, and
my kidneys got out of order and caused
me to have severe pains in the back.
At one time I became so feeble that I

Mr. Goldstein is a young man and
had then but recently established a
home of his own. His anxieites were
increased by the fact that his wife was
far from being lobust. Speaking of her
own state of health during this trying
period, Mrs. Goldstein says:
"For two years I had been ill most of
the time. Sometimes I was confined
to bed for weeks in succession. I had
headaches, kidney trouble, pain about

health," said Mr. Goldstein. "It prom

I found myself just as badly off as be

Then an advertisement and the ur
gency of some friends led me to try
a blood and nerve remedy which was
said to be wonderfully successful. I
could hardly believe it at first, but
within a month there were unmistak

became completely well. Through the

How to Get Health
The Secret of Restoring Health Lies
In Replacing the Same Substances
to the Body That Have Become
Impoverished or Wasted
By disease, overwork, worry, expo
sure or abuse. When you are run
down, getting thin, weak, and tire on
the slightest exertion, the life and
strength of your blood are wearing
out. When you grow irritable, melan
choly and nervous your nerve force is
decaying and vitality is becoming low.
Disease acts on those whose blood is
watery, impoverished or impure, and
never affects persons who have plenty
of rich and pure blood. Dr. Chase's
Blood and Nerve Food supplies what
is lacking in the blood and nerve
force. It contains everything that
makes new and rich blood and perfect
nerves, in fact. It is blood itself the
very essence of nerve force, making
it the grandest c.f all tonics for the
sick, convalescent and overworked. It
restores vim. vigor and vitality to
seed and worn out people, and Im
parts a glow of health to pale and
sallow people. Price 50 cents.
