A NOVEL WEDDING.
Two Young People Want to Be Married by Two
Justice of the Peace J. .T. MeDavid
performed a rather novel marriage cer
emony last night. About 7 o'clock Mr.
Seaborn Harwell and Miss Joana Foard,
two very popular young people of this
city, called at his office and asked him
to unite them In marriage, at the same
time requesting him to follow the rit
uals of both the Episcopal and Presby
terian churches. This the accommodat
ing magistrate agreed to do, and in the
presence of a few friepds who had gath
ered to witness the ceremony he pro
nounced the words that made them man
of all cases of consumption can, if taken in
the earlier stages of the disease, be cured.
This may seem like a bold assertiou to
those familiar only with the means gener
ally in use for its treatment; as, nasty cod
liver oil and its filthy emulsions, extract
of malt, whiskey, different preparations of
hypopliosphites and such like palliatives.
Although by many believed to be incura
ble, there is the evidence of hundreds of
living witnesses to the fact that, in all its
earlier stages, consumption is a curable
disease. Not every case, but a large per
centage of cases, and we believe, fully 98
per cent, are cured by Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery, even after the disease
has progressed so far as to induce repeated
bleedings from the lungs, severe lingering
cough with copious expectoration (includ
ing tubercular matter), great loss of flesh
and extreme emaciation and weakness.
Do you doubt that hundreds of such cases
reported to us as cured by " Golden Med
ical Discovery ” were genuine cases of that
dread and fatal disease ? You need not take
our word for it. They have, in nearly every
instance, been so pronounced by the best
and most experienced home physicians,
who have no interest whatever in mis
representing them, and who were often
strongly prejudiced and advised against
a trial of “Golden Medical Discovery,”
but who have been forced to confess that
it surpasses, in curative power over this
fatal malady, all other medicines with
which they are acquainted. Nasty cod
liver oil and its filthy "emulsions” and
mixtures, had been tried in nearly all these
cases and had either utterly failed to bene
fit, or had ouly seemed to benefit a little for
a short time. Extract of malt, whiskey,
and various preparations of the hypoplios
pbites had also been faithfully tried in vain.
The photographs of a large number of
those cured of consumption, bronchitis,
lingering coughs, asthma, chronic nasal
catarrh and kindred maladies, have been
skillfully reproduced in a book of 160
pages which will be mailed to you, on re
ceipt of address and six cents in stamps.
