What a blessed thing is memory 1 How
it brings np the pleasures of the past,and
hides its unpleasantnesses! You recall
your childhood days, do you not, and
wish they would return? You remem
ber tbe pleasant associations, while the
unpleasant ones are forgotten. Perhaps
to jour mind comes the face of some
friend. It was one a pale, sad face. It
showed marks ot pain, lines ot care.
It seemed to be looking into the here
after, tile unknown future. And then
you recalled bow it brightened, how it
recovered its rosy hue, how it became a
picture ot happiness and joy. Do you
remember these things? Many people do,
and gb.dly tell how the health returned,
how happiness came back, how ibe world
seem- d bright. They tell how they were
once weak, nerveless perhaps in pain,
certainly unhappy. They tell of sle p'.css
nights, restless days, untouched food, un
strung nerves. And then they tell how
Ihey Ix came happy, healthy and etrona
o ice more. You have heard it often in
the past, have you not7 You have heard
orople describe how they were cured and
kept in health? You certainly can re
member what it is that has so
helped people- in America. If no'

Millet, who isi known universally as tbe
treat dress re form-r, siys: -Six years
aeo, when suCeitrg from tnen al Ciire

nounced heaerjt from the u-e of that
i-reat medicine, Warr-er's SifeCura." Ah,
now you remember. Now you recall
how many people you have beard s y
this eame thiu2. Now you recollect how
much you have heard of thi great Cure.
Now you are ready to admit that memory
is usually pleasing, lhat. the highest
pleasure comes from perfect health, and
that this treat remedy has done more to
proilLC-; and prolong health than any
other discovery ever known in the entire
history of the whole world.
