Diseases are to the bod' what weeds
are to the soil. They divert the nutri
tion which is necessary to sound health,
and the body, instead of being strong
and hardv, drags out ,a sickly existence.
When the stomach is 'diseased, and tho
other organs of digestion and nutrition
are involved with it, there is a constant
loss of nutrition by the body. The stom
ache and its allied organs are not able to
convert the foods into nourishment, and
lience the body and its several organs are
deorived of the necessary elements of
vitality. What is known as ''weak"
heart 'or 'weak" lungs, vrea!c nerves
and other forms of so-called weakness, are
penerally caused by '"weak" stomach.
When the stomach and the other organs
of digestion and nutrition are cured, then
the other diseases are cured with it. Dis
eases which are caused by a diseased
condition of the stomach are cured
through the stomach. Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery cures diseases
of the stomach raid its associated organs
of digestion and nutrition. It cures
through the stomach diseases of heart,
lungs, liver and other organs. It in
creases the activity of the blood-making
glands, so that the whole body is nour
ished by an abundant supply of pure
blood, rich in the bright red corpuscles
There is no alcohol in " Golden Med
ical Discovery" and it contains neither
opium, cocaine, nor any other narcotic.
It is strictly a temperance medicine.
' Persons suffering from chronic forms
. of disease are invited to consult Dr.
Pierce by letter free. All correspondence
strictly private. Address Dr. R. V. Pierce,
Buffalo, N. Y.
Jv gratitude tovou and your 'Golden Sic
ice! Discovery ' is "so great." writes Mr. Re
ites Mr. Ross
Ivlartiu. of Artec. I.Iason Co., West Virginia, ""mat.
I am at a loss to find voras to esprcss my irue
feeling. I had suffered for a number of years
ivith Juns; and throat troubles, and doctored with
specialists, but got no better. Then I decided
to trv Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery,
and after using it I was greatly relieved. I nave
all faith that it has saved my lite. , . ,
I have one of your medical boohs and tteaK
it a grand work."

I was a sufferer from torpid liver for over a
rear," writes Mrs. Nora Willis, of Wheatfield,
Jasper Co., lud., raud could not sleep, nor cat
but verv little, and then it would cause nie great
distress. I tried several doctors but prot no re
lief. Was advised by a friend to write, to Dr.
Pierce, which I did, and in a few days I received
a letter advising me to take his Golden Med
ical Discoverv ' and also his ' Pleasant Pellets.
After I had taken only half a bottle I was greatly
improved. I only took; three bottles of the
Golden Medical Discovery ' and two vials of the
Pellets,' and. thanks to Dr. Pierce and his
wonderful mtdicine. I am as well as ever in my
lifeand feelthat-.life worth-living ift'T'-iiL

not move without it nearly killed me. I tola
nv husband I could not endure another night of
suffering. The weather was so cold and stormy
that it was almost too bad for any one to go sik
miles to town, .but he went, and got a bottle cf
Dr. Pierce's Extract of Smart -Weed, which gave
me instant relief. I can say that for all pains
that I have tried it for it has work J hke magic.

enough for what he has done for me-"
Constipation has almost countless con

cure constipation and cure its conse

the use of a laxative is indicated.
