Is it a sick man ? Is it a man who is weak? Is it a man whose blood is impure? An athlete trains lor .every race. The best athletes train all the. time. They are always in perfect condition. It is pretty safe to say that the best man will always win. The man who is strong and in the best condition will surely distance his competitors. - In the race for suc cess, the best man will win if he takes care of himself. He cannot win if he neglects his Shysical condition. It oesn't make any dif- V t? ference how smart he rV,. is. If his body isn't .-, stronsr. he will never Enish the race. He must look first for a dear, healthy, strong body, because the body makes and supports the brain. If the heart pnmps impure blood into the brain, yon cannot expect the man. to be clear headed, you cannot expect him to accom plish much. If a man's blood is pure and rich, there can not be much the matter with him. If it isn't pure and rich, he may have almost any disease under the sun, and Dr. Fierce' Golden Medical Discovery will cure it. It doesn't make any difference what form the disease takes, or by what name it Is called. - Nearly all diseases spring from impure blood. If you make the blood pure, you remove the cause and cure the disease. That's common sense and medical sense and scientific sense.
