Houdin, tbe great French Magician,
eould walk past a store window and enu
merate thirty or forty articles, seen as he
passed, with a turn of the bead and a
glance of the eye. What enormous possi
bilities are in n of which we live in pro

memory is in the mind alone. Bnt the
fingers have a memory or the pianist could
not find the keys in the dark.
There is (tremendous elasticity in nature.
Development of deficient organs is juat a
possible as development of deficient facul
ties. Now and again tbe progress of con
sumption is arreHed in aomeone. Tbe doc
tors bsd "sounded" him. One lung was
"entirely gone." It was a booties case.
But something arrested the disease, and
the man went on living with one lung. Hi
laugh was lust aa hearty, bis voice lost a
loud. Ana the poor man had only one
lnng. How could he do it ? Easily enough
You can do Uu same. You have two lungs
and you use about half their volume. If
you lose one lung and nse th entire
volume of the one remaining, yon have
still as much lung power as ever.
Doctors go on treating lung diseases as
if there were no elasticity or recuperative
power in nature herself. They decline to
take into account that reserve lung power.
Nature can't do everything. She works
to her ends through natural means. She'll
make blood but you must provide blood
making material. The sick man or woman,
the consumptive, can't give Nature the
means she is used to. What is needed is
blood food, nerve food, brain food, lite
making material in a condensed and con
centrated form easy for the sick to receive,
ample for the operations of Nature. And
this is juat the essential provision of Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It
provides in a condensed form the neces
sary aliment Nature needs for her body
building, and with it she goes to work and
repairs the rents and tears in the worn out
" My wile fewyears ago had hemorrhage of
the lungs, and we summoned our home phy
sician." writes Joarph D. Wile. Esq . of West
Poiol Street, Frederick. Md. " He checked the
beraorrhifr but (ailed to cur her. She hd
also terrible cough and expectorated a great
deal. She wanted to see another doctor ao I
called one, and he examined her. She aaked
him whether she had cooaumption, and hul
answer was, ' Madam, it is very near consump
tion.' He advised her to nac cod-liver oil, but
this gave but little relief I procured a bottla
of Dr. pierce s Golden Medical Discovery and
my wife commenced using It She began to set
better right away and her cough left her. She
used twvt ten bottles of Dr. Pierce' Golden
Medical Discovery. She can walk ten or twelve
miles without any trouble. We are aatis6ej
that her life and health have been saved by th
ase of Golden Medical Discovery.' Aa soon
as she takes aoy cold she insists upon haviug
a bottle of her medicine, as she calls it, and that
la the last we hear of her cold."
i "I can truly say that your 'Golden Medical
Discovery ' snd ' Pleasant Pellets ' have been
' the means of saving my life." writes Mr. D. L.
Bowles, of Olsnu, Clearfield Co.. Pa. " When I
began taking your medicines I thought my time
was short. 1 have not spit up blood now tor
bout four months and am reeling much better.
I feel that your medicine has done wonders
