"Foathors and Fashion" is tho tltlo of
an excellent nrtiolo by J. Carter Board
in Dcinorost's Family Magazine. Ho
says that future gouoratioiiB will woar
tho furs of domostio animais and tho
plumage of barnyard fowls, for there
will bo no other furs and feat hen. to
woar. Through tho wholesale slaughter
of birds of beautiful plumage, they aro
fast becoming oxtinot. Wo quoto:
"England imports moro than twouty-Pvo
million doad birds ovory yoar In ordor
that thoir corpses and foatftors may adorn
fashionable womou. lu all Europo, three
hundred million are annually sacrificed
for this purposo. In Chicago ono doalor
has received in ono sonsou thirty-two
million humming birds and throo hun
drod thousand other birds of difforent
vnriotios." Tho beautiful ogrots, or
snowy-white herons, which furnish tho
fashionable nigrclto, dwelt formerly lu
thousands in tho swamps of our South
ern States, but aro now almoBt extermi
nated. Tho delioately beautiful plumes,
BO much prized in millinery, aro worn
by tho birds only during tho nesting sea
son. Thus ovory aigrette stands for a
homo broken up, paronts slaughtered
and little ottos loft to starve But senti
ment is not nil. Thoro is n prnotlcnl
viow to bo taken. Wo quote again: "Tho
natural and only offootivo cheek for iu
scots IB tho birds. Evovy average insec
tivorous bird destroys at loaBt two thou
sand four hundred insoots ovory yoar of
its fifo. Tho groat majority of birds oro
insootivorouB. Tho only ono condomnod
ns actually UBOIOBB and pernicious is tho
English sparrow." All others aro tho
friends of mankind-especially of tho
farmer, gardener and fruit grower. It is
said that insect bte is already on tito in

of birds, and in placoB makes human lifo

When a train is discovered rushing on
to a frightful collision, it is a thrilling
instant ns.thc cngincor whistles "Down
brakes I " and reverses his lover. Brakes
alone arc not enough; the whole propell
ing power of the engine must be reversed
mid made to
work in the
d i re ct ion.
That is how
it is some
times with
disease. 1
There are
times when
the system is
flying along
the track
of disease
-at such a
-pace that no
ord I nary
methods will
prevent dis
aster. There
are plenty of
m e tl lc i nes
which act
merely ns breaks to "slow up" the dis
ease and put off disaster for n little while;
but tbnt isn't enough. What is needed
ia a medicine that will instantly reverse
the entire wasting, degenerating process.
When people are losing flesh, strength
and vitality, they need Dr. Pierce's Gold
en Medical Discovery, which nets directly
upon the vitnl forces, completely trans
forming thc entire nutritive organism and
totally reversing the wasting, debilitating
process which is at the root of all diseases.
It enables the digestive and blood
making organs to supply thc circulation
with un abundance ot pure, healthy, red
blood. It stops the wasting of tissue,
builds up solid, nmsculnr flesh and
healthy nerve-force.
"About four years ago I had an attack of
grip which left my threat and lungs in a
baa condition," write? Mrs. Mary Hartman,
of 300 Harker Street, Mansfield, Ohio.
"The doctor said I lind disease of the throat
and bronchial tubes. I continued to grow
worse all the time until I had pain in the
upper part of my chest and severe cough,
winch grew worse at night and in the morn
ing, with expectoration. Quite often I
would cough up what seeiueo to be mattery
scabs, after which I would experience a
burning and smarting sensation in my
thront. I took the doctor's prescriptions
without number, but all did not seem to do
me any real good. At last he told me to try
cod liver oil. I took sixteen bottles of the
oil; this seemed to help me for a while and
then I would be tis bad ns ever. Next I
tried the extract of malt. I took five bottles,
and not deriving any benefit from Hie tnnlt,
(I was feeling so weak I could hardly get
around) I concluded I would write to your
Institute for advice. About eighteen months
ago I wrote describing my symptoms. I
immediately received an answer advising n
course of treatment, which I began at once.
I bought five bottles of Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery, and one bottle of his
'Favorite Prescription' and three of the
'Pellets.' I began taking the medicines as
directed and immediately began to Improve
In every way. I have obtained more lasting
benefit from these medicines than from ali
others combined. Indeed Dr. Pierce's med
icinen have done wonders for nie. I enjoy
quite good health and have not taken any
medicine for ovei six. ???Utbft."
Miss Mary Whitman, of Rust Dickinson,
!.? .....lin Co., N. Y., writes: " For nearly
ten mouths I bad a bad cough, and in
stead of getting better, it grew worse, until
I wa? idvised by a friend to try Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery. I hesitated at
first, for it seemed to mc nothing would
give relief only death. My parents were
anxious about nie, and I wa? said to have
Consumption. I trttd your medicines, and
