Doctors say consumption can't be
cured. But when they see it cured right
under their face and eyes by Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery, they admit
that there's something wrong about their
arguments and something wonderful
about the "Discovery." It isn't miracu
lous. It won't cure every case; but it
cures a surprisingly large percentage of
cases; even when the patient Is pretty
far gone with a bad cough, and bleed
ing from the lungs, and reduced almost
to a shadow. Consumption Is a blood
disease. The lungs want a fresh supply
of pure, rich blood and plenty of it; that
is what the "Golden Medical Discovery"
gives them. It is a blood-maker.. It
gives the blood-making functions power
to produce a large quantity of nourishing
red corpuscles which make healthy, life
giving blood. This stops the wasting;
drives out the impurities; heals the ul

process, of solid, substantial and vital

Few, Indeed, realize the prodigious
growth that socialism has made In the
United States during the last five yoars.
I doubt even whether the socialists them
selves know how deep their damnable
doctrine has rooted. I doubt whether
either of the two great political parties
In this country realizes the monstrous
proportions which this child of the devil
has attained to. It ha3 gained a foot
hold In every county of every State, and
worse still, It ha3 Invaded every govern
ment In this world. It has entered the
church and taken the laborer from the
pew, for It Is a well-known fact that tho
rank and file of this fad Is made up from
the laboring classes and of the Illiterate.
Its hatred for that which makes good,
and Its love for the principles that lead
to anarchy unless Immediately checked
will overturn society and bring about a
reign of terrorism and destruction In
place of good government We need no
longer go to Europe to study socialism,
for its vile and dangerous doctrine has
Invaded every hamlet In our land, and
it3 anarchistic publications like Arena,
Appeal to Reason, New Time, and a hoot
of other yellow Journals may be found
in almost every home of the laboring
classes. The time has come when gov
ernment should Join hands with the
church to suppress yellow Journalism.
