What This Buffalo Physician
Has Done for Humanity
The picture which appears here of
Dr. Pierce of Buffalo, N. T., was
taken in 1910. As a young man Dr.
Pierce practised medicine In Penn
sylvania and was known far and
wide for his great success in alle
viating disease. He early moved
to Buffalo and put up in ready-to-use
form his Golden Medical Dis
covery, the well-known tonic for
the blood. This strength-builder is
made from a formula which Dr..
Pierce found most effective in dis
eases of the blood. It contains no
alcohol and is an extract ot native
roots with the ingredients plainly
stated on the wrapper. Good red
blood, vim, vigor and vitality are
sure to follow if you take this
Alterative Extract. Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery clears
away pimples and annoying erup
tions and tends to keep the com
plexion fresh and clear. This Dis
covery corrects the disordered con
ditions in a sick stomach, aids di
gestion, acts as a tonic and purifies
"the blood. Write Dr. Pierce's In
valids Hotel in Buffalo, N. Y., and
receive confidential medical advice
without charge. All druggists sell
Discovery, tablets or liquid. Send

WHY WOMEN GET DESPONDENT
Are not women naturally as light
hearted, brave and hopeful as men?
Yes, certainly; but a woman's or
ganism is essentially different from
a man's more delicate, more sensi
tive and more exacting. Women In
delicate health are more dependent,
more nervous, more irritable and
more despondent. When a woman
develops nervousness, sleeplessness,
backaches. headaches, dragging
down pains and melancholia she
should lose no time in giving Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
a fair trial, as It will quickly dispel
such troubles. This root and herb
medicine contains no drugs and has
been the standby of American
womanhood for nearly fifty years.
