Is there any relation between the weight of
the body and its health ? Unquestionably there
is. Every dollar of the millions of dollars of
life insurance attests that fact; for if the weight
falls below the normal ratio to height not a
dollar of insurance can be obtained. In ordina
ry we do not think of weight in its relation to
health. But sickness forces the fact upon our
We remember the attenuation which comes with sickness.
W e recall how loosely the clothes hang upon the conva
lescent, and how day by day with growing strength the
scale tells of increasing weight.
When a man or woman is weak and "run down,"
losing flesh, with failing strength, one of the sure tests
of returning health will be the increase of weight toward
the normal. It is not enough simply to feel better.
There are stimulating medicine which make the person
who takes them "feel good," for a time, yet there is no
real physical gain from the us of such medicines. But
when the body is built up with good healthy flesh the
restored strength is a real thing.
The reasons for the intimate relation between weight
and health are easily to be understood. The physical
life is sustained by food which is converted into nutri
tion. One of the results of disease in general is to
reduce the nutrition of tha body by reducing the capac
ity of the stomach (and its allied organs of digestion
and nutrition) to prepar the food eaten for its nutritive
service. Naturally thd poorly nourished body grows
thin and weak. This is especially true when the
disease directly attacks the stomach and digestive
and nutritive tracts. The food eaten cannot then
bo properly digested trnd perfectly assimilated.
Owing to the dependence of all other organs of
the body for their butrition and strength upon the
stomach and its allied organs, it often happens that the real
cause of so-called " weak " heart, " weak " lungs, " weak " kid
neys, sluggish ox "weak" liver, etc., is the "weak" stomach.
This is proven by the fact that when Dr. Tierce's Golden Medical Discovery cures
diseases of tho utomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition it is generally
the case that other forms of disease are cured also. Tho "weak" heart grows
souud, the "weak" lungs grow strong, and the kidneys and liver resume their
I used ten bottles of Dr. Tierce's Golden Medical Discovery and several viala of his
'Pleasant Pellets' a year ago this spring, and have had no trouble with indigestion since,"
writes Mr. W. T. Thompson, of Townseud, 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. got down in weight to 125 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. Tierce and his medicines."
"I suffered for twelve years with female trouble, " writes Mrs. Milton Grimes, of Adair, Adair
Co., Iowa, which brought on other diseases heart trouble, Bright's disease, nervousness,
and at times would be nearly paralyzed. Had neuralgia of stomach. I can freely say your
medicines (nine bottles in all, four of 'Golden Medical Discovery,' five of 'Favorite Pre
scription' and. two vials of Dr. Pierce's Pellets) have cured me. I can work with comfort
now, but before I would be tired all the time and have a dizzy headache, and my nerves
would be all unstrung so I could not sleep. Now I can sleep and do a big day's work,
something I had not done for over eleven years before. You have my consent to publish this
testimonial, hoping it will be the means of helping some other invalid."
"I had been suffering with kidney trouble twenty years," writes Miss Minnie Ryan, of 1537
Louisinna Avenue, St. Louis, Mo., "and I had doctored with a number of the best physicians.
I would get better, then worse again, until I read of Dr. Pierce's medicines. A little over
two years ago I commenced taking your ' Golden Medical Discovery ' and ' Favorite Prescrip
tion,' and took also several vials of Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. I took eight bottles (four
of each), and I feel now perfectly cured."
Thousands of men and -women have written in terms similar to the above in
testimony to wonderful cures effected by the use of " Golden Medical Discovery."
It always helps. It almost always cures. By curing diseases of the stomach and
other organs of digestion and nutrition, "Golden
Medical Discovery " restores the normal nutrition and
so builds up the body with sound flesh It increases
the activity of the blood-making glands, so increasing
the supply of pure, health-giving blood. It cures
nervousness, despondency and loss of appetite as well
as eruptions and skin diseases generally, which are
the result of an impure condition of tho blood.

Gives point to the fact that excessive or
irregular eating disturbs the digestion.
Nightmare or night hag has it's day time
correspondence in the undue fullness
after eating, with the belchings and sour
or bitter rising so often experienced after
too hasty or too hearty eating.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
cures dyspepsia and other diseases of the
stomach and its allied organs of diges
tion and nutrition. When these diseases
are cured, the whole body shares in the
increased strength derived from food
properly digested and perfectly assimil
ated. "Your 'Golden Medical Discovery' and Dr.
Safe's Catarrh Remedy have been of fjreat
benefit to me." writes (Prof.) Pleasant A. Oliver,
of Viola. Kulton Co., Ark. "Before I used the
above mentioned remedies my sleep was not
sound ; digestion bad : a continued feeling of
misery. I now feel like a new man. Any one
iu need of medical treatment for nasat catarrh
could do no better than to take treatment of
Dr. R. V. Pierce. I know his luedicipes are all
right in this class of diseases."
Sometimes a dealer tempted by the
little more profit paid on the sale of less
meritorious medicines will offer the cus
tomer a substitute as being "just as
good " as the " Discovery." It is better
for him because it pays better, but it is
not as gooil for you, if you want the
medicine that has cured others, and
which you believe will cure you.

A Rush Continues.
It was ment'oned last week in Port
land pepers that crowds were going up
stairs at 230'a Y tnhill street. Upon be
ing investigated we learned that old Dr.
Kessler has returned from his Southern
trip and the people learning this, made
a rush to consult him. It must be a
satisfaction to Dr. Kessler to knov he is
held in such high esteem by the people,
but it, is no wonder, when it is known
the 'great number lie has saved from the
grave or insane asylum. His patients
are numbered by the hundreds, and be
sides, the many he hascured, there are
hundreds, both men and women all over
this country, suffering fiom nervous
prostration and other complicated
diseases, wlio will soon go to the grave
or the asylum. The family doctor often
tells a person there is nothi.,y the
matter when consulted on these con
diiions. He really beletves what he says,
simply, because he does not under
stand the different manifestations of
these nervous breakdowns. Hundreds
of men and women, mostly women, are
to-day alivingdeath from nervous weak
ness, loosing their reason. Dr. Kessler.
with twentydive years experience prob
ably understands these chronic cases o(
all k'tids better than anv one else in the
state. He can give refrencts by the
hundreds but refrences is not asked of
him as tie too well known. It Is h art
rendering to go through an asylum and
st-e tl e pitiful cases. When once the
asiim door is rl sed on them they
leave hope behind, for little effort is
made to cure one after being sent to the
asylum. For your own and the sake of
the family don't let these nervous
symptoms continue but either g and
see or write your rase to old Dr . Kessler
at the St. Louis Dispensary at Portland
and always enclose ten-two cent stumps
w hen writing him or yon get no reply.
lie has never tailed on a.iy ease and can
cure you. Many persons at this season
are troubled with a cough, but don't let
b run into lung fever or consumption.
Doctor Kessler w ill stop your cough in
24 hours and cure you in "a short time.
He cure old sores, ulcers, cancers,
stomach diseases ot all kind, piles, rheu
matism, pain in the back, heart disease
etc. Don't put oil' until you hear from
htm those two aw ful words which he
says, when he can't cure, "too late" ,"too
late." Mo difference what your trouble
is, call on or write him to-day. If you
can't call, w rite him and he will send
question blanks for home treatment.
