We're not waiting for the bats and

brains and reason! There's a new
world for them suffering and sickly
as they are a new world created from
the brain of a skillful physician a dis
covery the "Golden Medical Discov
ery." Years ago Dr. Pierce found out that
the secret of all scrofula, bronchial,
throat and lung trouble lay in the be
ginning at least in impure blood and
the weak tone of the system; that the
way to cure these effects was to remove
the cause, that human nature being the
same, the same results might be looked
foriu nearly all eases. So confident
was he that the exceptions were uncom

medicine to those it didn't benefit for
nothing, and the results have proved
that he was right.
