"What a truly beautiful world we
live in I Nature gives us grandeur
of mountains, glens and oceans, and
thousands of nieaii3 fir enjoyment.
We can desire no better when in
perfect health ; but how often do the
majority of people lee! like giving
it up disheartened, discouraged and
worried out with disease, when
there is no occasion lor this feelinjr.
as every sufferer can easily obtain
satisfactory proof that Green's Au

direct cause of seventy-live percent
