Pe-ra-na em Such Cases.
A sluggish liver is brought about
in the following way: There is a
catarrhal condition of the mucous
membrane lining the stomach- This
catarrhal condition spreads down*
ward to that portion of the alimentary
canal just below tha stomach known
as the duodenum.
Into the duodenum empty the bile
ducts. These bile ducts are lined
with mucous membrane continuous
with the mucous membrane of the
duodenum. The catarrhal Inflamma
tion therefore gradually spreads from
the membranes of the stomach and
duodenum into the bile ducts.
This thickens the mucous mem
branes and clogs up the ducts. The
bile is then turned back into the liver
and the whole circulation of the liver
impeded, producing what is known as
a sluggish liver.
Cathartics bring only temporary re
lief. They slush out the liver for the
time and relieve this sluggishness, but
it has been the universal experience
of mankind that the sluggishness will
return very quickly.
The only permanent relief is ob
tained from a course of treatment that
tends to allay the catarrhal inflam
mation. Thousands of people have
found Pernua to be such a remedy.
It removes the cause of the sluggish
ness of the liver by removing the

caused by a sluggisih liver. Listless
ness, an all-tlred-out feeling, lack of
energy, confusion of the senses, sleep
lessness, yellow skin, coated tongue
these are a few of the symptoms
produced by a sluggish liver.
The condition of the stomach and
liver above described has been for
many years denominated by Dr. Hart
man as systemio catarrh.
Patients of this kind are generally
supposed to be afflicted with malaria.
Quinine, alternated with physic, is
the usual treatment. Disappointment

Those who have ever tried Pernua
for such a condition never fail to re
sort to it again whenever they have
occasion to do so.

Those who have followed the
stories of the remarkable work that
L. T. Cooper has been accomplishing
with his two new medicines will be
interested in the report that comes
of his invasion of Nashville, Tenn.,
after nearly four weeks of phenom
enal success in New Orleans.
Sinee Cooper's arrival in Nash
ville a few days ago, says a dis
patch, the city has been in an up
roar of excitement. The newspa
pers print detailed accounts of his
every move, and recent issues con
tain names of several prominent
persons said to have been cured
by the use of his preparations.
The cases thus far made public
seem to be confined largely to Stom
ach trouble, altho the names of
several persons have been men
tioned as having received excellent
results in cases of Kidney trouble
and Bheumatism. One thing that
has done much toward creating the
present excitement is the theory ad
vanced by Cooper that about 50
per cent of the so-called stomach
trouble is due to immense parasites
or tapeworms and which indeed
seems true, if one can judge from
the number of cases that are be
ing continually made public.
O Beports from New Orleans say
that upwards of fifty of these para
sites were expelled from the sys
O terns of persons who thought them
selves suffering from stomach trou
ble. SO far there have been report
O ed seven cases in Nashville, and
in almost every instance the patient
was unaware of the real cause of the
trouble. Mrs. M. Murry, 1605

SIGNS OF AGE SHOWN
IN YATIGAN PALACE
Journal Special Serrtoa,
Borne, July 14.There is alarm in
the Vatican on account of ominous
crackling sounds from the walls used as
the ante-chamber of the pope's apart
ments. Fragments have fallen from
the ceilings or several rooms. The first
to take flight upon these disturbing
signs were the noble guards of the pope,
who feared to be buried in debris, and
the pope moved to safer quarters. A
confernece of engineers found really
serious deteriorations in certain parts
of the palace. Repairs and reinforce
ments were decided upon.
cently appeared in the daily papers.
When seen and asked about her
experience, Mrs. Murry said: 'I had
been a victim of stomach trouble
for years and doctored in vain. I
suffered greatly from an irregular
appetite, sometimes not being able
to eat at all, andjotiherltimee noQbeing
able to eat enough. I used to feel
tired and worn out all the time, lost
all ambition. I did not seem to gain
any strength or nourishment from
what I ate. I was nearly always
troubled with constipation and fre
quently suffered from severe head
aches. Sometimes I would have
queer dizzy spells and could see dark
spots floating before my eyes. After
eating I would invariably experi
ence a pain and bloating sensation
in my stomach. I had doctored for
a long time and have used every
remedy I ever heard of without any O
benefit. When this man Cooper
came to Nashville and every one
was talking about what his medi
cines were doing I secured a trial
treatment. I had taken only a few
doses of the New Discovery medi

any more. I am more than grateful
for what Mr. Cooper's wonderful
medicine has done for me and I am A

these years was caused by nothing
but that awful worm."
Cooper, it will be remembered,
is the man who created a sensation
in St. Louis a short time ago, at O

the country were full of the reports O
