THE BEST REMEDY
Diseases of tbe Tbroat and Lungs,
R.,i aw Tn f11.4PA.sea of the duU
jnonary organs a safe
and reliable remedy is
Cherry Pectoral ia
such a remedy, and no
otuerso eminently mer
its the confidence of
the public. It is a sci
entific combination of
the medicinal princi
ples and curative vir
tues ol the finest drugs,
chemically united, of
such power as to insure
the greatest possible
offiplpnc v and uniform-
TM7Trn?" ity of results. It strikes
FLsLlOtiiHL. ot thA foundation Of all
pulmonary diseases, affording prompt relief
and rapid cures, and is adapted to patients of
any age or either sex. Being very palatable,
the youngest children take it readily. In
ordinary Coughs, Colds, Sore Throat,
Bronchitis, . Influenza, Clergyman's
Sore Throat, Asthma, Croup, and Ca
tarrh, the effects of Ayer's Cherrt Pec
toral are magical, and multitudes are an
nually preserved from serious illness by its
timely and faithful use. It should be kept
at hand in every household for the pro
tection it affords in sudden attacks. In
Whooping-cough and Consumption
there is no other remedy so effirciou3,
soothing, and helpful. t
Low prices are inducements to try some oi
the many mixtures, or syrups, made of cheap
and ineffective ingredients, now offered,
which, as they contain no curative qualities,
can afford only temporary relief, and are
sure to deceive and disappoint the patient.
Diseases of the throat and lungs demand
active and effective treatment ; and it is dan
gerous experimenting with unw? aJ
cheap medicines, from the great liability that
these diseases may, while so trifled with,
become deeply seated or incurable. Use
Ater's Cherry Pectoral, and you may
confidently expect the best results. It is a
a ,i;,w.i nnnsntinn. nf known ana
acknowledged curative power, and Is as

will allow. Eminent physicians,

SYMPTOMS OF A DISEASED LIVER.
Bad Breath: Pain in the Side, sometime the
pain is felt under the Shoulder-blade, mittaken for
Rheumatism; general I oil of appetite; Bowels
generally costive, sometime alternating with l;
the head I troubled with pain. Is dull and heavy,
with considerable loss of memory, accompanied
with a painful sensation of leaving undone something
which ought to have been done; a slight, dry cough
and flushed face ia aometimes an attendant, oftea
mistaken for consumption; the patient complains
of weariness and debility: nervoua, easily startled;
feet cold or burning, sometimes a prickly sensation
of the skin exists; spirits are low and despondent,
and, although satisfied that exercise would he bene
ficial, yet one can hardly summon up fortitude to
try it in fact, distrusts every remedy. Several
of the above symptoms attend the disease, but cases
have occurred when but few of them cxiited, yet
examination after death has shown the Liver to
have been extensively deranged.
It should be used by all persons, old and
young-, whenever any of the above
symptoms appear. .
Persons Traveling; or Living; In Un
healthy Localities, by taking a dote occasion

P. M. Jannby, Minneapolis, Minn.
Dr. T. TV. Mason says t From actual ex

Not all ungrateful to thine car.
