Dr. Pierce Announces the Ingredients
of tho Family Medlclneo Which
Have Made His Namo a Household
Word In the World.
With all tho recent talk about patent
medicines and tho determined effort in
certain quarters to cast discredit upon
all household remedies which como un
der that head, tho fact remains that
somo of these medicines are so firmly
established In popular favor and con
fidence havo so proved their worth
and value, that all tho denunciations
of bigots cannot destroy tho peoplo'a
faith in them.
Ono of tho best known of thcEO rem
edles Is Dr. Plerco's Favorite Prescrip
tion, a mcdlclno which for years has
been accepted by tho pcoplo as a stan
dard preparation for tho cure of thoso
ailments to which women alono aro
subject and which has proved to bo a
cortaln euro In nlno cases out of ten
and a suro relief In tho other one.
Thoro is nothing to conceal about
tho Favorite Prescription. l is an ab
solutely pure medicine made of roots
and herbs, Naturo's own restoratives.
Dr. Plerco Is perfectly willing to let
every ono know that his Favorlto Pro

Every doctor knows that such a pre

over the world as a sovereign cure for
thoso diseases which, unchecked, mako
our women old before their tlmo.
Thero 1b no alcohol In tho Favorlto
Prescription. Dr. Pierce never bo
lloved In using alcohol In tho prepara
tion of his famous household remedies.
For it he substituted chemically puro
glycerine, which has wonderful prop
erties for extracting tho medicinal
principles of roots and herbs and barks
and preserving them at their full
strength, without any deleterious ef
fect whatever.
Your druggist sells tho Favorlto
Prescription nnd also that famous

Kushequa, Pa., July 10. (Special)
In this section of Pennsylvania thero
is a growing belief that for such Kid
ney Diseases as Rheumatism and
Lame Back thero is only ono suro
cure and that Is Dodd's Kidney Pills.
This belief grows from such cases as
that of Mrs. M. L. Davison ot this
place. Sho tells tho story herself as
"I havo suffered from Rheumatism
for thirty years and find that Dodd's
Kidney Pills havo dono me moro good
than any medicine I havo ever taken.
I was also bothered with Lamo Back
and I can only say that my back hasn't
bothered mo slnco I took Dodd's Kid
ney Pills."
Considering that Mrs. Davison only
took two boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills,
tho result would be considered wonder
ful if it were not that others are re
porting similar results dally. Kushe
qua is fast arriving at a verdict that
"Dodd's Kidney PUla are the one suro

after meals, and my food never satis

indigestion, and I began to improv
from the time Grape-Nuts appeared on
our table. I find that by eating a dish
of it after my Sabbath work Is dono
(and I always do so now) my nerves
are quieted and rest and refreshine
sleep are ensured me. I reel that I
could not possibly do without Orape
