Every day adds to the list of deaths
attributed to heait failure. If the truth were told the bulk of these deaths might be written down as due to stotntun failure. I*"or it is in the failure of the stomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition, that "weak” heart, " weak " lungs, " weak ” nerves and other forms of pliysicial deterioration having their beginning. The man whose stomach is sound, who can digest and assimilate the food he eats, and so keep each organ of the body well nourished, is the man who is least liable to collapse under the sudden weakness of some vital organ. The preservation of health which fol lows tne use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, is chiefly due to the fact that it perfectly and permanently cures diseases of the stomach and organs of digestion and nutrition, purifies the blood and increases the blood supply of the laxly. Weak people will find in this medicine a sure means of strength. "I was under doctors’ care for quite a lime,” writes Mr. J. P. Kidd, of I'armleysvillc. Wayne Co., Ky. ’’They had aimed siren me up, and my suffering was eery great. My pulse was weak, nrcat£ short atld T had aerere pains in back, head aud !rj?s Had palpitation of heart, and for eleven months I was not able to do a day ’s work. I purchased five bottles of Hr. R V. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery and by the time the fifth bottle was gone X was a well man.” Dr. Pierce’s Pellets regulate the liver. WILL OF MR. RICKER.
