The Mammoth and the Mosquito
Whit has come to pass in thousands of
years seems hardly credible. Primitive
man, a weakling in comparison to modern
man, was able to conquer the huge mon.
sters of thousands of years ago, such as
the Mammoth, and to-day they are dead
forever; yet the mosquito and fly have
never been conquered. It is now time
for the scientist to evaise methods for kill
ing the mnpsquito ~d fly, so that they will
go to join the siioth and the monster
lizards. The ia and flies are dan
gerous enemies .nan because they spread
contagion. ,The nmoSquito often carries the
germ of malaria with his bite. The house
fly preads germs of disease over our food.
These bacterial germs, ever hunting for
the weak spot, find a place in our blood,
and then we suffer from grip, catarrh; con
sumption, or malaria.
Dr R. V Pierce, chief consulting physl
eian to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical
Institute, at Buffalo, N V., says : "There
would be no grip epidemics, the germs of
consumption, or malaria would find no
place in the human economy, if the blood
were pure, if the lungs, heart and other
organs were fed on good blood. Poisons
should not be allowed to accumulate in the
body; to be safe it is best to take a gentle
laxative at least once a week." Such a
vegetable laxative as Dr. Pierce's Pleasant
Pellets contains nothing which could harm
For putting the blood in order, and as a
tissue-builder and tonic for those weakened
by coughs, colds, catarrh, grip, nothing will
build one up quicker than Dr. Pierce's
