OF HEART DISEASE.
How frequently does » head line simi
lar to the above greet us iu tiie news
papers. The rush, push and
netss of the American people has a strong
tendency to lead up to valvular and other
affections of the heart, attended by Ir
regular action, palpitation, dizziness,
smothered sensations and other distress
Three of the prominent Ingredients of
which Dr. Pierce's Golden iMedical Dis
covery Is made are recommended by somo
of the leading writers on Materia Medial
for the cure of just such cases. Golden
Seal root, for Instance, is said by the
UXITKD STATES D I SPICKS ATORY , a stand
ard authority, "to impart tone and in
creased power to the heart's action."
Numerous other leading authorities rep
resent Golden Seal as an unsurpassed
tonic for the muscular system in general,
and as the heart is almost wholly com
posed of muscular tissue, it naturally
Follows that it must be greatly strength

of " Golden Medical Discovery," so far
as Its marvelous cures of valvular and
other affections of the heart are con

Prof. Wm. Paine, author of Paine *
Epltomv of Medicine, says of it:

so much oppressed with vafvular disease of
the heart that Ills Mtoc'ls * Cl '° obllmjd to
carry him up-stalrs. Uc. however gradually
recovered under the influence of Colllusoiiin
(medicinal principle extracted from Stone

Heretofore physicians knew of no remedy
tor the removal of so distressing and so £an
srorous a malady. With them It was all
guevi- work, and It fearfully warned the
afflicted that death was near at hand. Cai
lLnsoaln unauestlonably affords relief In
such cases, and in most instances effects a
CU J§tone root Is also recommended by Drs.
Hale and Elllngwood, of Chicago, for
valvular and other dlsoases of the heart.
