Liver Diseases most prevail. It will cure aU
Diseases caused by Derangement of the
liver ami Ilowels.
The SYMPTOMS of Liver Complaint are a bitter
or bad taste in the mouth ; Pain in the Hack, Sides or
fuints, often mistaken for Rheumatism ; Sour
Stomach ; Loss of Appetite ; Howels alternately
costive and lax; Headache; Loss of Memory, with a
painful sensation of havii.g fajled to do something
which auht to have been done; DebiUty; Low
Spirits; a thick, yellow :-ppearance of the Skin and
Lyes; a ciy Cough, often n.istaktn for Consumption.
Sometimes many of these symptoms attend the
disease, at others very few ; but the Liver, the largest
orpan in the bodv, is jcnerally the seat of the disease,
and if not Regulated in time, great suffering, wretch
edness and lillA'l'M wiil ensue.

Vg7- ? right under their
face and eyes by
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery,
the' admit that there's something wrong
about their arguments and something
wonderful about the " Discovery." It
isn't miraculous. It won't cure every
case ; but it cures a suprisingly large per
centage of cases , even when the patient
is pretty far gone with a bad cough, and
bleeding from the lungs, and reduced al
most to a shadow.. Consumption is a
blood disease. The lungs want a fresh
supply of pure rich blood and plenty of
it ; that is what the "Golden Medical Dis
covery " givevS them. It is a biood-maker.
It gi'.-es'the blood-making functions
power to produce a large quantity of the
nourishing ud corpuscles which make
healthy life-giving blood. This stops the
wasting; drivcj out the impurities; heals
the ulceration and begins a rapid building-up
process, of solid, substantial flesh
and vital energy.
It isn't only consumptives who need
the " Discovery." It cures every form of
chronic blood-disease and all scrofulous
and eruptive affections.
Mk. Isaac K. Downs, of Spring Valley, Rock
laud County, A. '., writes : " For three years 1
had Miffcrcd froui that terrible disease, consump
tion, and heart-disease. Before taking .Doctor
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery I had wasted
way to a skeleton; could not sleep nor rest, and
many times wished to die to be out of my misery.
Step by step, the signs and realities of returning
health f-lowlv but Vurelv developed themselves
while taking the " Discovery." Today I tip the
scales nt cne-huiidred-and-eighty-seven, and atn
vell and strong. The4 Golden Medical Discov
ery ' has al.-o cured niv daughter of a very bad
ulcer located on the thigh. After trying almost
everything without success we purchased three
bottles of your ' Disco 'ery which healed it
peilectly." Yours truly.
