The whole doctrine of it turns on these three points; (1) It is all paint and true paint; (2) lt is the strongest paint; (.3) It is full measure. Because it is all paint, true paint, proportioned for strength and full measure. (IHt takes least for n job, (2) Looks best all the time: (3) Lasts longest; (4) Gathers the trade, and holds customers. There is no such argument for any other paint; there is no other such paint; there is nothing but talk for any other paint. Devoe is the paint, if you want the facts on your side. The country is full of experiences, we bring these experiencesjto bear on your trade, if you sell Devoe. Yours truly, F. W Devoe & Co., New York. 31 Dr. H.

Neglect of the First Warning Symp toms is the Prime Cause of so Many Deaths from the Dreaded Bright's Disease. !t Is Easily Curable In the Early Stages, Kidney diseases are so destructive to tinman life because they do not manifest alarming symptoms until the constitu. tion is seriously weakened and the strength exhausted. Then, too often, the remedies employed by many physi 'ians are of indifferent or doubtful value, snd the patient rapidly sinks under the disease. The wisest course is to apply a reliable kidney and liver remedy on the first appear wee of the symptoms. A little uneasiness iu the small of the back, digestive troubles, bowel irregularities and disorder in the urinary organs matters of small moment in the estima tion of strong men and women, yet they have a serious meaning. They show dearly that the kidneys are suffering and need help, which must be forth ïomirig at once to prevent serious, per haps fatal consequences. A few doses •if Prickly Ash Bitters at this time would prove of incalculable value in restoring the weakened organs to health. An investment of one dollar in a bottle of Prickly Ash Bitters when the disease is > et in the early stage will save hundreds of dollars in doctor's bills, besides the suffering that would surely follow should the disease he allowed to fasten itself in the body. The excellent curative power >f Prickly Ash Bitters is not confined to the first stages of kidney disease. It is equally efficacious in severe or chronic cases. Physicians have used it as a last resort, in cases that defied their best efforts, with the most brilliant results, and it has shown its superiority over the many so-called kidney cures, now being loudly advertised, in instances innu merable. are Accept w the gciwi large tig*» it* 3 in red substitute.
