-LONDON. July 11. No ajithentle
news from IVkdi, Is still the burden
of tbe dispatches from the East and.
although tbe disposition Is to lielieve
the optimistic reports from Chinese
Bounty, no real confidence Is HssIble
until the legations are permitted j to
communicate with their 'overnnionts.
According to a Che Foo dispatch,
tbe fighting around Tien Tsin on
July 3d and 4th. was the Everest j'et
experienced. The Chinese had 35,liOo
men attacking simultaneously from
the north, east and west, and made
excellent practice with over loo guns.
The defenders numliered 14.O0O. with
scant supplies, .and it was only the
presence of the newly arrived Jaimu
ese and Russian guns that prevented
a disaster. One Russian company1 of
Infautry. numlering 520 men. had 115
killed or wounded. Tbe German cou-i
tingent also Buffered heavily nnd the
British casualties were thirty. ' ' ; j
On July Oth, the Chinese-renewed
tbe attack ii'ion Tien Tsiu. with two
batter leu of 4-tncb guns, but tbe allien,
aided by two of Her Majesty's ship
Tcrrible'a puns, succeeded In silencing
the artillery after eight bourn of lights

"In 1KS1 -a place alsiu't the sixe of a
silver dime broke out on my-scalp and
it kept spreading until it went nil over
my head.: It pained a great deal and
ran, and we tried a great many dw
tors -and all, kind of imtent medicine;
but none did ;auy good. So it went on
tjiitil 1800 and I was taken. sick and
lay alioqt ten weeks." I was in a very
weak condition ami I was recommend
ed to try Dtietor Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery. ; I took aliout six lst
tles. I think, bout tliree lsittles of
medicine I took for my weakness, not
tbiftking of it helping me hi any other
way. ami I feel so : thankful that I
don't know bow to express my thanks
for the cure -of my head.

Dr. Pierce's theory is that disease of
the stomach and allied organs of diges
tion ami nutrition. Is the fruitful cause
of diseases of -heart. lungs, liver and
kidneys, ami these diseases originating
in the stomach are cured through the
stomach by the use of "Golden Medi
cal Discovery. Tin proof of the sound
ness of this theory lies iu the variety
and multiplicity of tlie. cures of "Gol
den Medical Discovery." and the fact
that the whole,' physical tone Is at
once elevated by Its healiug and
"Your medicines have t'one so much
for me that I cannot thank you enough
for "advice a nd .'kindness shown me."
writes Mrs. Warren E. Parker, of
Orange St.. Nantucket. Mass; "Three
3 ears ago I was taken sick with what
the doctor 'called nervousness and indi
gestion. He gave me .medicine for the
trouble, but 1 could not even -.eat a lit
tle toast or oataneal without sufferim-
severely, i reft hungry but hardlv

medicine but it .did not do any good. I
iost - imhihos in three months. At

beyond help. One of my friends loan
ed me jn Pieu-e Common Sense
Medical Adviser-to read, and when I
read that many iicople had lieen curetl
by his iiitHliciiies I made up my mind
to write tti hi ni, nltluiugli 1 was so lwid
I diln"t think there .was any help ftir
tne. 1 wrote and Mated my case and re
ceived a prompt retrty. lie told me
had indigestion, associated with a tor
pid li-er, and he advised me to take
his 'Golden Medical Discovery and al
so ins -reliefs,' if const incited. I com
tueneed taking his medicines Immedi
ately, and stsitt lgan to fHl lietter. I
have taken six Uittles of 'Golden Med
ical Discovery, two - of 'Favorite lre-
scripf ion, ami six vials of Dr. Pierce's.
Pellets. I have gained ten iiounds,
Am at ile to do all my work and have
not had a distressing spell for five
mouths. Cau eat everything. I can
not express thanks enough, for the
good the' medicines have done me."
If you are sick do not consider your
case as hopeless until you have given
Dr, Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
a fair and faithful trial. It has cured
so many cases which have battled nhv-
siei'tns. It has cured so often when the
