Whatever may be the fact at to many
of the so-calJra patent medicines con
taining Injurious imrredieritii as broadly
published In some journals of more or
leas influence, this publicity has certainly
been of great benefit In arousing needed
Attention to this subject. It has, in a
considerable measure, resulted Id the
most Intelligent people avoiding suet
foods and medicines as may be fairly sus
pected of containing the injurious Ingre
dients complained of. Recognizing tlilf
act some time ago, Dr. Tierce, of buffalo,
I. Y., "took time by the forelock," as it
were, and published hrosdcaxt all the
ingredients of which his popular medi
cines are composed. Thus ha has com
pletely forestalled all harping critics and
aJl opposition that might otherwise be
Brged against his medicines, because they
are now of known composition. Fur
thermore, from the formula printed on
very bottle wrapper. It will be seen that
these medicines contain no alcohol or
ther habit-forming drugs. Neither do
they contain any narcotics or injurious
gents, their Ingredient being purely
vegetable, eitraeted from the roots of
medicinal plants found growing in the
depths of our American forests and of
well recognised curative virtues.
Instead of alcohol, which even In small
portions long continued, as In obstinate
eases of diseases, becomes highly objec
tionable from It tendency to produce a
ravrog for stimulant, Dr. Pierce sm
ployi chemically pure, triple -refined
glycerine, which of itself Is a valuable
remedy In many cases of chronic diseases,
being a superior demulcent, antiseptic,
rntlferment and ingaiorting nutritive,
t enhances the curative action of the
Golden 8eal root, Htone root, Black
Cherrybark and Wood root, contained In
Golden Medical Discovery," In all bron
chial, throat and lung affections attended
with severe coughs. As will be seen from
the writings of the eminent Drs. Grover
Cos, of New York; Bartholow, of Jeffer
son Medical College. Phila.; Scuddor, of
ClnelnnaU: Elllngwood, of Chicago:
Bala, of Chicago, and others, who stand
a leaders In their several schools of
practice, the, foregoing agent are tht
very bat Ingredient that Dr. Pierce
could have chosen to raaka up his fa
mous "Discovery" for the cure of not
only bronchial, throat and lung affec
tions, but also of chronic catarrh la all
Its various forms wherever located.
