Without food red biooa man has a weak heart and Door nerres. Anemia meaos thi: new of blood. It la common in men and young women and all tViciiu. vhn wnrlr indoors. wbo do not Ret enough outdoor air and good axygen in their lunga. There are too many white blood corpuscles in ucli cases, and there is often a peculiar Bound in the heart, called a murmur, in caae of anemia. This heart murmur is caused by thinnesa of the blood passing through the heart. The murmur of anemia disappears when the blood regains its natural consistency and richness. It is not heart disease. Sometimes people suTer intense pain over the heart, which is not heart disease, but caused by the stomach. It is the occasion of much anxiety, alarm and suffering, for which its victim is dependent upon reflex disturbances from the stomach caused by indigestion. In the same way many bad coughs are dependent upon these reflex disturbances of what is called the pneumo gastric nerve. To enrich the blood and increase the red blood corpuscles thereby feeding the nerves on rich red blood and doing away with nervous irritability, take Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, which promotes digestion and assimilation of food so that the blood gets its proper supply of nourishment from the stomach. Get as near to nature's way as you can. A medicine made entirely of botanical ex tracts and which does not contain alcohol is the safest. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery contains no alcohol or narcotics. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets arc Uva best liver pills.
