HKKTIIA AND HfKIK.
Cupid breaks his bow at the sight of a
face full of pimples. Hollow cheeks,sun
ken eyes, and a sallow complexion will
defy his best intentions. Beauty is
more than skin deep. Theskio is mere
ly the surface on which is written in
plain characters the condition of the
body. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery is good for the complexion be
cause it makes the whole body healthy
because it clears and purities the
blood, makes the digestion strong and
clears out impurities of all kinds. By
increasing the ability to assimilate nu
tritious food, and by the infusion of its
own ingredients it enriches the blood
and so makes solid, healthy tlesh.
It cures diseases of the lungs, liver,
stomach, bowels, skin and scalp, simply
because all these diseases spring from
the same cause a disordered digestion
and consequent impure blood.
