The largest sum ever paid for a pre scription, chanced hando in San Fran cisco, August SO, 1901. The transfer in volved in coin and stock f 112,600.00 una was paid by a party of business men for a Fpeuifie for lirighl's Disease and Dia betes, hitherto incurable diseases. They commenced the serious investi gation of the specific Nov. 15, 1900. They interviewed scores of the cured and tried it out on its merits by putting over three dozen cases on th treatment and watching them. They also got phy sicians to name chronic, incurable eases, and administered it with the physicians for judges. Up to Ang. 25. eighty-seven per cent of the test cases were either well or progressing favorably. There being but thirteen per cent of failures, the parties were satisfied and closed the transaction. The proceedings of the investigating committee and the clinical reports of the test cases were published and w ill be mailed free on ap plication. Address Jons J. Fclton Company, 420 Montgomery St., San Francisco, Cl. The man on the stage who does the trick of escaping from firmly tied ropes, submits to the bonds with a smile. He knows he can get out of the ropes that are being knotted. Put the same man in the woods and let Indian captors bind him to a tree for torture and he would struggle to the last against the bonds. When the stomach is diseased there are bonds being woven every hour about the organs dependent on the stomach heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, etc. The folly of mankind is to passively submit to the fastening of these bonds with no effort to escape until the pain they cause arouses fear. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery cures diseases of the stomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition. It cures diseases of heart, liver, lungs, kid neys and other organs, when these dis eases, as is often the case, have their origin in the diseased stomach. "For a long time I was suffering and was hardly nble to get about," writes Mr. Andrew J. JenuiuRS. of Thomas, Tucker Co., W. Va., Box 194. "Was bothered with kidney trouble and my whole system was out of order ; had no appetite. A friend of miue told me to try -Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. I did so nd the first bottle restored my appetite. I took Six bottles of 'Golden Medical Discovery' and jome of the 'Pleasant Pellets' and feel like a bew person." Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets cleanse die clogged system from impurities. Notice To Creditors.
