Instinct in Brutes.
Few things are more wonderful than
the instinct that guides the brute in the
choice of its food or medicine. In India
the uiuo goose, when bitten by the dead
ly corba, is said to seek among the grass
for some unknown herb or substance
which it swallows and is thereby enabled
to counteract the effect of the pion.
Man, when his system is deranged by the
accumulated poisons engendered by con
stipation or a sluggish habit of body,
should seek relief in Dr. Pierce's Pleasant
I el let 9, which will at once establish a
permanently healthy action of the liver,
