Disbursing Officer Glad to Recommend Paine's Celery Compound. No department at Washington just now BO absorbs the attention of the peo pleas the splendidly-growmg, formidable navy. It is not to the gold-laced Aunapo lis graduates that tbe brunt of the re|spring sponsible work falls, but to tbe able department officials, of whom Disbursing Officer F. H. Stickney is one. A letter from bim says: "Having taken Paine's celery com pound for the last few weeks, I have found it a perfect spring remedy, and been muoh benefited by it." Spring is the decisive time in the life of every person out of health. It is an assured fact that stubborn disorders become quiokly ourable in the spring. This is especially true of suoh persistent troubles as rheumatism, neuralgia and obstinate kidney diseases. has tempted scores of incompetent per sons, schemers and clerks, with only a I dangerous smattering of medical koowl edge, to venture to concoct so-called remedies. I In sharp contrast with these risky I preparations is the one valuable spring remedy worthy the name in tbe estima tion uf competent persons and medical authorities, Paine's celery compound. This widely praised and widely prized remedy really does make people well. It is as far removed, in the minds of judic ious men and women, from all other remedies purporting to accomplish equal results, as the north is from the south. Clear-minded professional men, business men and tbe great body of bard working brain workers all over tbe oountry be lieve heartily, and with good reason, Paine's celery compound. Fame's celery compound gets its staunohest endorsement from physicians and scientific men who were led to verify its claims because of its discoverer, tbe distinguished Dartmouth college profes sor, Edward E. Phelps, M. D. LL., D. Nothing will pull a tired-out, nervous, "run-down" man or woman out of the quagmire of sinking health so promptly and firmly as Paine's celery compound.
