BOLT8 and bars are an unfortu nato feature of our modern civ iiization, but are necessary in maintaining law and order. It is necessary that tbere be laws, and some means of' enforcing them. A criminal loose in a community is like a chronic and wasting disease which preys on our bodies, aa it consumes but does not supply an equivalent. Before a crime can be punisbed it must beproven that a law has been broken, and similarly before disease can get a foot-hold the laws of health ,mu8t na've been violated, by tho sufferer or his parents, in defiance of the rules of per sonal or public hygiene. And it is a ?ad fact that the use of alcoholicdrink isa most common and debilitatingform of abuse to which we subject our long snffering bodies. On tho first symp? toms of indisposition and discomfort, we are only too prone to seek solace from this all-curing panacea. A glass of wine or bitters will often spur a lag ging appetite, and enable an exbausted stomach to partake of a good meal, which it otherwiso wonld have spurned. But we purchase snch relief only at the price of eventual exhaustion, when the stiraulant is withdrawn, which, alasl is eeldom done before the sufferer finds himself a slave to alcohol. Most of the remedios wbich are on sale at the stores to-day, aro made up with alcohol, some of them having a higher percent age than tbe best brandy or whiskey. The pntient, of conrse, fcels tho effect at once, bnfc soon noteo the incvitable reaction.and says: "The medicineisn't doing me the good it did at flrst." Dr. Fiorco's Family Remedies contain neither alcohol, chloral, morphino or any such drngs. It is impo.sible to form a habit from their use. Their effects are not abrupt, the paticnt grad ually feeling a change for the better, which iS permanent and 6ure; more over, they are perfoctly safe and harm lesu, and can bc taken by nny one. Poisonous and dangerous medicines are seldom necessary, and ougbt not to bo used. There are many kinds of poisons, some mineral. as arscnic and mercary; some vegetable, as stryebnirio and mor phine. Bnt tho most deadly of all poi? sons are of animal origin, and are man ufactured by living, bealthy bodies, dur? ing growth and daily existencc. A man in twemty-fonr hours throws out of his system enongh ef these poisons to kill a dozen men. If a small quantity of the perapiration bc gathered and in jected into tho blood of a rabbit, the animal will promptly go into conval sions and die. Theso poisons are ex creted from the body by the skin, kid ne-ys and lungs, and if these organs become diseased, nre thrown back Into the blood, and then every organ of tha body euffers. Headnches, dizzy flnshes, thnt "nll gone" feeling, and many other disagrecnblo Bymptoms result, Nature has arranged mattors so thnt if one of these excretory orgatis faile. another will step into the breach and do extra work, but if all are over worked and cxhnusled, tbe man weak ens and dies, killed by his own secra tiona. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medlcal Discov ery gives tonc to tlie kidneys and skin. It helps tliecliminntion of noxious mafc ter, and makes pure blood. SECUTUTY FOR LIPB. The deslre (o live is a naturnl instlnel implanted in nll mankind. To live to a good old nge depends flrst of all on a healthy stomach and nn nctive liver. Why? Becnuse the blood which is the main stream of life; depends upon tho etomach and tho hver. The stomach tnkes from our food those mineral elo mm'tfl Vrhich nre neceBHtrry for ile nour ishment. If tlie Btomnch is liealtliy, it absorbs just what is needed for heart, lungs and nervco, On the other hand. the liver nets ns tbo human flltcr ana erndicntes the poisons from the blood. Given a healthy stomach and liver and we can "'live beyond our allotted threo Hcoro nnd ten. That is why people live to a good old age who turn to Doctor Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery whenever they feel out of sorts. Bo cnusc this "Discovery" cures nll stom? ach and liver dlsorders, by putting tho stomach iu a healthy state ond by mnking tlio liver active, and is such a reliable blood remedy nnd tonic that it often enjoys the confldenco of several generntions in a family, and its in creascd sales year by year coming from the rccomruendntions of those who have tricd it; prove its lasting merit, 60 that every bottlo bears tbe stamp of publio approva). "I nm satisficd that Doctor Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery will give permanent relicf, and cure any one who may be sufieriug from stomach and liver trouble, which as a rule are the result of bowel difficuUies," writes I_. Royalty, Esq, Lexington, Ky., Justice of the Peace for twenly-nine years. "Mv ex? perience with the abovc-named medicine waa most satisfactory. I found it a very pleasant, mild remedy, agrccable-to the taste, and very niild in action. It soon had my system well regulatcd and toned up, and 1 have felt in splendid health and 6pirits ever since." LIFE IMPRISONMENT, next to death itself, is the most severe punishment which is infiicted for tho violation of human law, but no less. eevere are tho penalties exacted for violations of nature's laws and rcgula tions. The best preventive is knowl edgo of sclf, and Ihis can be had from the great Doctor book, the "Common Ecnse Medical Adviser," which Dr Picrce, of Buffalo, N. Y., sends freo to all who send 31 cents to pay postuge. It Ehould be in every homo, and is a magnifi ccnt volume of over a thousand pa_es, profusely iliustrated with colored plates.
