physician practiced widely in a
rural district and became famous
for his uniform success in the
curing of disease. This was Dr.
Pierce, who afterwards estab
lished himself in Buffalo, N. Y.,
and placed one of his prescriptions,
which he called "Golden Medical
Discovery," in the drug stores of
the United States so that the pub
lic could easily obtain this very
remarkable tonic, corrective and
blood -maker. Dr. Pierce manu
factured this "Discovery" from
roots and barks a corrective
remedy, the ingredients of which
nature had put in the fields and
forests, for keeping us healthy.
Few folks or families now living
have not at sometime or othpr use4
this "Golden Medical Discovery"

Over twenty -four million bottles
of this toni" and blood remedy
have been sold in this country.
