Anyone who under
knows the need of
a counter-balance to
equalize pow and keep the machinery
going with a .teady even motion. With
out it the machinery would wrench itself
out of shape. It is the same way with the
machinery of the human -body : it needs
to go on steadly and regularly to be in
good health not by fits and starts. The
sudden wrenciing medicines which peo
ple sometime; take to overcome consti
pation, give aviolent strain to the intes
tines which veakens them, so that the
costiveness is afterwards worse than be
fore. What costiv! people need is a natural
kixative like Ir. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets
which are pop erf ul without being vio
lent. Thev rove the bowels gradually
and comfo'rtaly but surely. You can
re'jub.te the lr-.se one, two or three
