ARE THEY TO BE TRUSTED
The only value of the question in the
headline is to bring home the fact that
of all classes of testimony, that offered
by the clergy would be most promptly
accepted without doubt or cavil. The
clergy stand for truth and right, and
thousands follow them living up to the
tame precepts of rectitude. These fol
lowers are no whit less truthful than
their leaders. Yet because the preacher
is a leader it is natural to give weight to
his statements.. His very position and
responsibility to his people and the
world at ; large not only forbid the
thought of untruth in him, but lend
emphasis to any voluntary declaration
of fact which he may make.
If a pastor say. to one of his congre-
Stion who is coughing, "I cured a very
d cough once by the use of Dr.
Pierces Golden Medical Discovery," he
' could offer no stronger endorsement as
to the value of that well-known medi
cine as a cure for coughs; and if such a
pastor makes for the time the world his
parish, and puts out the same testimony
he is only enlarging the scope of his
benefaction. For if the world at large
knew and was persuaded of the wonder
ful curative powers of "Golden Medical
Discovery" in cases of diseases of the
respiratory organs, it would mean a
great increase in the general health and
comfort, not to say a probable saving of
a great many lives. .
"as True AS GOSPEI.."
It is "as true as gospel that Dr.
Pierces Golden Medical Discovery cures
coughs, bronchitis, weak and bleeding
lungs and such diseases of the respira
tory organs as through neglect or un
skillful treatment may find a fatal term
ination in consumption. It is also true
that the limit to a possibility of a cure
cannot be set. When people who have
had fourscore hemorrhages of the lungs
are cured by the use of the "Discovery,"
there is certainly hope for one who may
have had ninety hemorrhages. When
some one is taken from the condemned
cell into which the local practitioner has
shut him, and from a weak, emaciated

"I-desire to send you this brief, unso
licited testimonial," /writes Rev. Joseph
H. Pesperman, of Barium Springs, Iredell
Co., N. C. "In 1898, one of my daugh
ters was suffering on account of a severe
cough, hectic fever, wasting of flesh and
other symptoms of diseased lungs. I
promptly gave her Dr. R. V. Pierces
Golden Medical Discovery with gratify
ing success, and she now
enjoys excellent health.
This experience caused me
to recommend Dr. Pierces
medicines *to ! my neigh
bors, who, without excep
tion, used them with favor
able results. This being
true, I hereby heartily en
dorse your medicines." *
It can be truly said of
Dr. Pierces Golden Med
ical Discovery that it al
ways helps and almost
always cures. Ninety
eight per cent, of all who
use "Golden Medical Dis
covery" are perfectly and
permanently cured. The
remaining two per cent,
though not cured acknowl
edge appreciable benefit.
They cough less, eat bet

THE IMPORTANT POINT.
While extreme cases of
disease are cured by the
use of "Golden Medical
Discovery," the important
point is not to neglect the
slight cough. From such
neglect fatal results have
come to many thousands.
It is useless to try the mere
"cough medicine," or pal-,
liative, which soothes but
does not cure. The one
thing desirable is to be
cured quickly and per
manently, and it is in such
cures that the " Discovery "
proves its value.
" I took a severe cold which settled in
the bronchial tubes," writes Rev. Frank
Hay, of Nortonville, Jefferson Co., Kan
sas. "After trying medicines labeled
'Sure cure,' almost without number, I
was led to try Dr. Pierces Golden Med
ical Discovery. I took two bottles and
was cured, and have stayed cured. When
I think of the great pain I had to endure,
and the terrible cough I had, it seems
almost a miracle that I was so soon re
lieved. That God may spare you many
years and abundantly bless you is the
prayer of your grateful friend."

in chronic form are invited to consult

BUYS MORE BONDS
Secretary Gage Is Reducing the Sur

>*««*■ York Sun Special Service
[ Washington, April ( 3.Secretary Gage
has decided that the time had come for
reducing the surplus and the bonded debt
at the same time. He announced last
week that he would buy in any of the
short time bonds whenever they were of
fered to him at a rate which would place
them as an investment on a par with new
2 per cents. .: _.. - - - . y" 1- '..-
The secretary to-day purchased in New
York $600,000 additional short term bonds
at substantially the same rate as paid for
the $2,000,000 bought yesterday.
Secretary Gage does not propose to in
volve the treasury in j any stock jobbing
operations, nor has the surplus grown to
su.h proportions that there is any imme
diate, pressure to get rid of the money.
The new 2 per cent bonds were issued ex
clusively for refunding operations. They
were permitted to be exchanged for j the
old bonds at a fixed rate. The govern
ment saved the interest and the investor
secured a more desirable security. The
transaction was conducted . strictly on a
business basis, and neither the govern
ment nor the bondholders made any im
proper profit... •■ r* - . : ' ..■'-_
The refunding - operations were practi
cally closed some months ago. Now the
secretary purposes to buy bonds only when
it will be profitable, to do so.
The indicated: surplus for the year is
$56,000,000. The reduction in the war reve
nue taxes will scale down the receipts
next year about $40,000,000. The result will
be that there will not be such a great sur
