When tho nervous system has become
weakened from any cause, Palno's celery
compound builds it up as nothing else can.
It makes people well.
People in every walk of life have reason to
bo grateful to Prof. Phelps, of Dartmouth,
the eminent scientist who discovered Paine's ,
celery compound. Ho understood the pe
culiar needs of tho nervous system; he knew
that tho backache, headache, sleeplessness,
loss of appetite, and disordered blood all
mean that the nerves are weakened and.iu
adequate to the demands upon them. Tho
expcrlenco of thousands has proven all over
this broad country that only Paine's celery
compound will give health to tho nerves,
and through them to the entire body.
Colleges conferred upon Dr. Phelps their
highest honors for his invaluable investiga
tions in medicine, but all this seems insig
