Every student knows that in close rea

down and deductions eduml.
It is not our purpose at this time to en

your eye and ask what they represent to
A railroad man to whom we showed
them said, "To me those four lines repre
sent a double-track railway."
A doctor repliid to the same interroga
tory, "The lines are to me the large ar
teries and veins lying alongside each
other in the human body."
As will le olwerved the same lines to
either gentleman suggested different lines
of thought, as both looked at them
through eyes accustomed to see only that
which for the most part occupied their at
tention. To the writer both answers put
an old truth in a fresh ond original light.
As every intelligent man or woman
knows, the blood of everv living jieraon
flows with almost railroad speed tlirougli
the arteries, forued by that wonderful en
gine, the heart. From the arteries it is
side-tracked through the capilliarie
and veins, and every drop of blood goes
through the kidneys for purification so
less than 2500 times every twenty-four
hours. If the kidneys lie diseased the im
purities of the blood containing the worn
oat tissues, and deleterious acids are not
drawn out or excreted as nature intended,
but continually pass and repans through
every fiber of the system, carryiag death
and deeav with every pulsation. Unless
remedied the heart becomes weakened,
thelungstrying todo double work break
down, the liver becomes congested, the
stomach refuses to digest food and the re
sult is a general breakdown.
Betiause the kidney's, the sewers of the
system, are foul and stopped up, and the
entire blood becomes nothing more nor
less than sewage.
Now is it not criminal, nay, suicidal,
to allow such astute of things to continue
when a simple remedy is within your
reach, known fora certainty to do as rep
resented, winch will ojien the closed pijies
of the kidneys, allow the effete matter to
escape, relieve the overworked heart,
lungs and liver, cause a healthy apatite,
put the bloom of health in your cheek,
the dove of hojie in your breast and the
light of life in your eye?
You already have divined the remedy
we have reference to ; its praise is univar
sal, its influence world-wide. Do not al
low prejudice to blind you to vour liest
interests, but to-day procure Wurner's
Safe Cure and be iut on the straight roud
to rude health and correct living.
Our parallel and closing lines to you are,
bike our advice and your experience will
justify you in thanking us for bringing
under your notice a remedy without a
