Tomorrow there will be a font ball Fame between the Mayfleld team and the St. Thomas' college team of Scran- The murderer who, at dead of night, Creeps, stealthily oat to bury the dead and mangled body of his victim inspires men with horror and rV, id. There is a murderer abroad who yearly slays one-sixth of all the human race who go down to untimely deaths. This dread monster is called consumption. The npproach of consumption is slow and insidious. First there is a slight disorder of the digestion. The appetite is poor and the nourishing properties of the food are not properly assimilated.' The blood becomes thin and impure. The body begins to starve. Old tissues of the body are not properly re placed by new. The lung tissues are not properly nourished and are inert and half dead. In this condition they offer a good soil for the germs of consumption which invade and attack them. This operation is promptly reversed by Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It invigorates the digestion and appetite and makes assimilation perfect. It build's up and purines the blood. It makes new and healthy tissue to replace the old, inert mat ter which it causes to be carried off. It drives out all disease-germs. Thousands of cases given up as hopeless have been cured. Miss Laura Piersel, of East Bethlehem, Wash ington Co., Pa., writes: "I must write yon' tel ling you of the great benefit derived from the use of your ' Golden Medical Discovery.' I-ast sum mer my friends thought I was surely going into consumption, and having tried doct ari with no satisfactory results and hearing your medicine o highly spoken of.-1 took one bottle. My cough leu me together with all the distressing symp toms, and in fact the cure seemed almost mirac ulous to all who saw me."
