In T. Feniraore
Stocking Tales, we
read stones of tee
. and the tmerrinfir ac
curacy of the eye of
the American Indian
when he reigned su
preme over this conti
nent. Before he was
debauched by modem
civilization, he was a
of physical manhood.
He lived entirely in
the onen air. and
knew no medicine, save the simple herbs
gathered by his squr-w.
Civilized man lesdi i:i unnatural and an
unhealthy life. Unlike the Indian if he
would maintain his physical and mental
health, he must take reasonable precau
tions to combat disease. Nearly all dis
eases have their inception in disorders of
the digestion, toroidity of the liver and
impurity of the blood. Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery is made of simple herbs.
It restores the lost appetite, makes diges
tion and assimilation perfect, invigorates
the liver, purifies the blood and promotes
the natural tsrocecsss of excretion and se
cretion. It sends the rich, red, life-giving
blood bounding through the arteries and
corrects all circulatory disturbances. It
dispels headaches, nervousness, drowsi
ness, lassitude, and drives out all impuri
ties and disease germs. It cures 98 per
cent, of all cases of consumption, bron
chitis, asthma and diseases of the air-passages.
It gives sound and refreshing sleep,
drives away all bodily and mental fatigue
and linearis vigor and health to every or
gan of the body. Medicine dealers sell it,
and have nothing else, "just as good."
"A few of my symptoms," writes Charles
Book, of Cllssas, Kalamazoo Co., Mich., "were
heart-burn, fullness after eating, pain in my
bowels, bad Juste in my mouth, end occasional
fever nnd hot flushes. Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery cured all these and I am
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are ante,
speedy and permanent cure for constipa
