K.very day brings its
fierce, unceasing con-
. w flict; every night leaves
its multitudes of dead
and dying. The horrors of war are no
greater than the horrors of disease. If all
the nations of the earth were at war against
each other there would be no such carnage
wrought within the year as that which is
accomplished annually by one dread disease
Ana yet this most taiai oi an aiseasea is
not without its remedy. It is no longer the
irresistible dt3troer that it was considered
thirty years ago. An entirely new aspect ia
put upon the possibilities of this dreadful
malady by tbe astounding remedial action
of Dr. Pierce'a Uolden Medical Disco ve.,
which cures consumption by nourishing the
lungs with an abundant supply of pure,
highly -vitalized blood.
This stops the formation of tuberculous
matter, and builds up fresh tissue, muscular
flesh and vital energy. It gives digestive
power to the stomach which ia too weak to
assimilate oily emulsions.
