Tho position of tho physician who doals' with tho norvous and tho feoblo, the pain-worn. the hyatorical, tho sleop less, is ono of tho utmostgravity. Prolooged strain of mind and body, or of both, is apt to rcsult all too quickly in suddon collapso. Ono of the groatest physicians the world has ovor soon, who was for ynars the most prominont man upon the faculty of Dartmouth, roalizing tho cxtont of phyaician's responsibility, sot about to discovor a romedy that should build up tho nervous systom, and curo tho ills that rcsult fr6ru impoverished blood and dlseased ncrvcs. Ho dircovcrod that greatest of all remedies, Paino's celory compound, and submittod tho formula to fellow physicians. Thero was no secrot about it. The formula from that timo till now has bcen furnished, whenever asked for, to repu table physicians. and tlioy have ti.uo and ngain oxaminod it, and knowing that it is good, havo rocommended it to thoso who are sick. No other romedy was over so highly ondorsoa, and so generally useu anu rec omonded by physicians. Mlt. J. I.ITTLKJOHM.

I saw tho doctor tho next day, and ho said he had found sorao unduo pressure at tho baso of tho brain. Dr. W.'s diag nosis was the samo as my own, although wo had neither of us known anything about tho other's diagnosis. Thero was some unsteady twitchings of tho facial musclos on tho right sido, and especially on tho right oyo. "Mr. Littlojohn scomed tobocomploto ly unbalanced and 'jorky,' and quito un steady.

I rocom mended Paino's celory compound. "Ho tried it, and by a steady, persist ont use of the celory compound, ho completely oured himsolf of tho worst caso of oxtromo nervous pros tration and oxcltability that I ever saw. Mr. Littlojohn informs mo that ho has spont ovor $5,000 in doctoring, without good. Ho thoroughly tried colery com pound. It completely cured him." Mr. Littlejohn himsolf writcs: "I havo been a travoling man for a grcat many years, and tho exposurcs and worry that follow buslness transactions, caused me to break down with norvous prostration so that for sovoral days they thOucht I was dying. Bcsidos this, I bad the crceping paralysis in my lcf t arm, hand and sido so that they were almost entiroly useless, andl had a.most sovero caso of catarrh to tho extent that it al most destroycd my oyoslght and ruindd my hearing.
