can be named in the single word dys
pepsia. It is the one disease, which more
than anvother.affects ipt.
the American people. I r - vjjja
It is common to aliP '
classes ana an conui
tions. It makes life
miserable. It mars
family happiness. It
interferes with busi
ness and pleasure
alike, and it discounts
a man's usefulness
just as much as it
discounts his happi
ness. There's a remedy
for dyspepsia. Dr.
Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery has
lifted this burden
from the bodies of
hundreds of thou
sands. It cures
ninety-eight out of
every hundred who
give it a fair and
faithful trial.
"I used ten bottles of
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medi
cal Discovery and several
viaU of his 'Pleasant
Pellets' a year ago this
spring, and have had no
trouble with indigestion
since," writes Mr. W. T.
Thompson, of Town
send. Broadwater Co-
Montana. "Words fail to tell how thankful I
am for the relief, as I had suffered so much and
it seemed that the doctors could do me no good.
I got down in weight to 115 pounds, and was not
able to work at all. Now I weigh nearly 160
and can do a day's work on the farm. I have
recommended your medicine to several, and
shall always have a good word to say for Dr.
Pierce and his medicines."
Free. Dr. Pierce's Medical Adviser
is sent free on receipt of stamps to
pay expense of mailing only. It con
