PAINE'S CELERY COMPOUND Is the Creat Restorer of Health for the Ruler and His Humblest Subject. Sickness, disease and suffering re spect neither ruler nor subject. The noted and high horn have their trials and physical sufferings like those in humbler stations. Social standing and wealth cannot bar the progress of dis ease when the common rules of health are violated. Impure blood and weak nerves are responsible for many of the common diseases of life. The experienced phy sician will tell you that men and wo men with pure, clear, coursing blood and well braced nerves, can never be come victims of rheumatism, neural sria. liver troubles, debility, headaches or sleeplessness. It follows, therefore, that sufferers from any of the ailments referred to, should at once take proper measures to cleanse the blood and feed the weak nervous system with proper nourish ment. For the happy accomplishment of this important work, Paine's Celery Compound is the only safe agent, the one great specific, the only security airainst deadly disease and death. Dur ing these spring days, Paine's Celery Compound guarantees a perfect regu larity of the bowels, healthy appetite, sound sleep, good digestion, pure blood, strong nerves and clear brain, all of which mean full and robust health. Mr. E. M. Sutton, ex-Mayor of Bur lington, Vt., one of the strongest and heart iost advocates of Paine's Celery Compound in the United States, tells us in the following letter how he keeps well under all circumstances: he says: "People have often asked me how I managed to keep so well, for although out in nearly all kinds of weather and traveling considerably, I have no aches or sickness. My one answer has been that instead of waiting until I am sick in bed and forced to stop work for awhile, whenever 1 feel out of sorts the least bit, I take Paine's Celery Com pound, which keeps me well and strong. 1 a grrai ueai oetter id my upiuiuu WESTMINSTER.

Mr. Goodridge was born in Westminster, Vt., in 1821 and learned the trade of wheelwright which he followed for 50 years. He first came to Orange about 1818 when Orange was merely a farm ing section. He remained here five years and then returned to erinont where he remained seven yeaas anu then came to Athol where he continued at his trade 3-1 years until he wife died in 18S8, when he gave up his business and came to Orange to live. He is now 80 years old and although in active ser vice for 50 years he is remarkably well and retains his mental faculties to a wonderful extent. Ho reads the com mon print without glasses and tens how several vears ago his sight came to him so he discarded glasses. He was in the habit of putting them on at meal time and one day pushing back he put up his hands to take off his glasses and found he did not have them on. On investigation he found he could see better without than with them. He spends much of his time in pleasant weather in sitting under a magnifi cent pine in the yard which he has watched grow from a sprout 14 inches high and which he declared he would never sit under, but he has for several seasons and promises to sit in its friendly shade for a number of years to come.
