There are ot!icr kinds of grandparents that we can't Ixr proud of. Weak of body and feeble of mitnl, we can only pity them. They no more live ; tin y only exist. What makes the difference between these two classes of old inert? A sound stomach and a plentiful sup ply of pure, rich blood. Dr. Tierce's Golden Medical Discovery strength ens the stomach, purifies the blood, atul increases the activity of the blood making glands. It won't make old men young, but it will enable old men to assimilate the food they eat, and so strengthen them for a life of rea sonable exertion.
