The Good Tilings of Earth.
ARE NOT ALL FAR - FETCHED.
Hor Bitter Disappointment.
rjnHAT our American forests abound in plants, the roots
: I " of which possess the most valnable medicinal and
curative virtues, is abundantly attested by scores of
the. most eminent medical writers and teachers of our age.
Even the untutored Indians- had, by intuition and. experi
ment, discovered the usefulness of many native plants before
the advent of the white race on this continent. This infor
mation crude though it was, imparted freely to the friend-
licr of the whites, led the latter to continue investigations
Until to-day we bave a rich bssortment of most valuable
r American medicinal roots and herbs.
' ,' . It is no longer thought necessary that a medicinal agent,
, in order to be good and useful, must have been brought
across th ocean or that "being carried seven times across.
' the Sahara Desert on the backs of fourteen camels " makes
it the more valuable.
, . ' Dr. Pierce believes that our American forests' abound
; in most valuable medicinal roots for the cure of most of our
obstinate and most fatal diseases, if we would properly in
vestigate them; and, in confirmation of this firm conviction,
; he points with pride to the almost marvelous cures effected
by his "Golden Medical Discovery," which has proven itself
to "be' the most efficient stomach tonic, liver invigorator,
heart tonic and regulator, and blood cleanser known to med
ical science. Not less marvelous, in the unparalleled cures
it is constantly making of woman's many peculiar affections,
Weaknesses ' and distressing derangements, is Dr. Tierce
, Favorite 'Prescription, as is amply attested by thousands of
unsolicited testimonials contributed by grateful patients who'
vt have been cured by it of leucorrhea, painful periods, irregu
' larities,- prolapsus and other displacements, ulceration -of
uterus and kindred affections, often after many other ad
vertised medicines had failed.
Both these world-famed medicines are wholly made up
from the glyceric extracts of native, medicinal roots, found
in our American forests.. The processes employed in their
manufacture were original with Dr. Pierce, and they' are
carried on by skilled chemists and pharmacists with the aid
of apparatus and appliances specially designed and built for
this purpose. Both medicines are entirely free from alcohol
and all other harmful, habit-forming drugs. A full list of
their ingredients is printed on each of their wrappers. They
are both made of such native, medicinal roots as have re
.. ceived the strongest endorsement and praise for their cura
' , the virtues from" the most prominent writers on Materia
; Medic in this country, What is said of their power to cure
, : the several diseases for which they are advised may be easily
learned by sending your name and address to Dr. R. V.
Pierce. Buffalo, N. Y., for a little booklet which he has com
piled, containing copious extracts from numerous standard
medical books, which are consulted as authorities by physi
cians of the several schools of practice for their guidance in
prescribing. It is FREE TO all. A postal card request
will bring it.
A You don't have to rely solely upon the manufacturer's
say-so as to the power of Dr. Pierce's medicines to cure, as
with other medicines sold through druggists. You have the
disinterested testimony of a host of the leading medical
writers and teachers. Send for this copious testimony. It
'can be relied upon to be truthful because it is entirely dis
interested. " '
'-' From the little booklet above mentioned, you will learn
what a marvelous curative action Stone root, .one of the
prominent ingredients of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery, exercises over the heart and its diseases, especially
those valvular affections which are attended with difficult
breathing, smothered . sensations, palpitation or irregular
heart action. Dr. Paine, author of Pain's Kpitomy of Med
icine, considered Stone root specific in these cases, and cites
bad cases cured by it in his extensive practice. Golden Seal
root, another prominent ingredient of Dr. Pierce's "Discov- .
ery," is also a valuable heart tonic, as is also Black Cherry- '
bark, another ingredient. Yon will also learn that the emi- '
nent Drs. Hale, Ellingwood, Johnson, Hare, Coe and others
recommend Golden Seal root, and several of them Stone .
root, Queen's root, Bloodroot and Black Cherrybark for .
bronchial, throat and lung affections, attended with hoarse
ness, persistent cough, night-sweats and kindred symptoms
indicating approaching consumption.' All these agents are
faithfully and fully represented in Dr. Pierce's Golden Med-. '
ical Discovery, and it can be confidentially relied upon to
produce their combined curative effects, not -only In the
above mentioned affections, but also in all catarrhal dis-
eases, no matter whether affecting the nasal passages or
other regions of the body.
In nasal catarrh, while relying on the "Discovery " as
the best constitutional remedy known to medical science, '
Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy should be used to cleanse the '
nasal passages. Together they constitute the most thorough
and effective course of treatment which can be employed for
the cure of that troublesome disease.
No other medicines 'sold .through, druggists for like
purposes, have any such professional endorsement as Dr." '"
Pierce's, and, in consequence, none are : so largely prescribed ,
by physicians who know what they are made of and that
their composition is of the best ingredients regardless f. -.

R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y., j. : ',
THH bitter trial in a woman's life is to be childless.
' Who can tell how hard the struggle may have been
ere slfe learnt to resign herself to her lonely lot ? The
absence of thia link to bind marital life together, the absence
of this oue pledge to mutual affection is a Common disap
pointment. Many unfortunate couples become estranged
thereby. Kven if they do not drift apart, one may read the
whole extent of their disappointment in the eyes of such a
, childless couple when they rest on the children of others.
- To them the largest family does not seem too numerous. It
will rather appear to them that those on whom this blessing
( t has' been most richly bestowed hardly value it sufficiently.
, , In many cases of barrenness or childlessness the obstacle
" to child-bearing is easily removed by the cure of weakness
on the part of the woman. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip
tion has been the means of restoring health and fruitfulness
to many a barren woman, to the great joy of the household.
.. In other, but rare cases, the obstruction to the bearing of
children has been found to be of a surgical character, but
easily removable by painless operative treatment at the
( Invalids Hotel and Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y., over
... which Dr. Pierce of the " Favorite Prescription" fame
presides. In all cases where children are desired and are
- absent, an effort should be made to find out the real cause,
' since it is generally so easily removed by proper treatment.
,''''.' In all the various weaknesses, displacements, prolapsus,
anteversion, retroversion, inflammation of ovaries, leucor-
- rhoea, giving rise to disagreeable and weakening drains,
' and in all cases of nervousness, nervous prostration and
; debility, Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is the most effici
ent remedy that can possibly be used. It has to its credit
... hundreds, of thousands of cures more in fact than any
other remedy put up for sale through druggists, especially
forewoman's use. You do not have to take Dr. Pierce's
' J' woVd alone for this, because the ingredients of which the
; J'Favorite Prescription" are composed have received the
1 - mi?st positive endorsement from the leading medical writers
on- Materia Medita of all the several schools of practice.
" v All the ingredients are printed in plain English on the
t "wrapper enclosing the bottle, so that if you are an invalid
woman and make use of this famous medicine you know
exactly what you are taking. Dr. Pierce takes his patients
v. into his full confidence, which he can afford to do as the
formula after which the "Favorite Prescription" is made
will bear the' most careful examination.
. You do not have to experiment when taking Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription, as with the many fake, Cheap John
". Medicines that are sent out on trial' composed of cheap and
1 '! of ten harmful ingredients. Dr. Pierce resorted to Nature's
: Laboratory to get the ingredients for his " Favorite Prescrip
tion," believing that the indigenous, or native, medicinal
' roots of our country are endowed by Providence with the
y most marvelous curative powers.
The only rational way to attempt to cure disease is by
. assisting the natural functions of the body, and to do that
' ' there is nothing like Nature's remedies which act in Nature's
,' way, toning and invigorating the digestive organs, the liver,
, . the stomach and bowels and the nervous system, which
' always suffers to a great extent in all the various derange
' ' inents of the organs distinctly feminine.
' v The medicine of known composition Is one to rely upon
... -the one that has a record of nearly forty years of cures
- the one devised and manufactured by a regularly graduated
c ! and experienced practitioner of medicine. By addressing
Dr. R. V. Pierce, at Buffalo, N. Y., yoa may secure, free, a
little pamphlet giving numerous extracts from many medical
writers of prominence, extolling the various ingredient
which enter into Dr. Tierce's Favorite Prescription. It U"
worth looking over if you are a sufferer.
Dr. Pierce does not claim for his " Favorite Preset iption
that it is a "cure-all." It Is recommended as a most perfect
specific of woman's peculiar ailment. So uniform are the
results which follow the use of this remarkable remedy, that
it can be truly affirmed of "Favorite Prescription that it
always helps and almost always cures. Ninety-eight per
cent, of tha women who give this medicine a fair and faithful
trial are cured and remain cured.
It is a powerful invigorating tonic, imparting health
and strength in particular to the organs distinctly feminine. .
The local, womanly health is so intimately related to the
general health that when diseases of the delicate womanly
organs are cured the whola body gains in health and
strength. For weak and sickly women who are " worn-out,
"run-down " or debilitated, especially for women who work
in store, office or schoolroom, who ait at the typewriter or
sewing machine, or bear heavy household burdens, Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription has proven a priceless benefit
because of its health restoring and strength giving
As a soothing and strengthening nervine, "Favorite
Prescription " is unequaled and is invaluable in allaying and
subduing nervous excitability, irritability, nervous exhaus
tion, nervous prostration, neuralgia, hysteria, spasms, chorea,
or St. Vitus's dance, and other distressing nervous symptoms
commonly attendant upon functional and organic disease of
the womanly organs. It induces refreshing sleep and t
relieves mental anxiety and despondency.
Cures obstinate cases. "Favorite Prescription Is a
positive cure for the most complicated and obstinate cases of 1
leucorrhcea, excessive flowing, painful menstruation, un-'
natural suppressions and irregularities, prolapsus or falling' .
of the pelvic organs, weak back, "female weakness," ante
version, retroversion, bearing-down sensations, chronic con
gestion, inflammation and ulceration, inflammation, more or
less pain and tenderness over the lower abdomen accompa
nied with "internal heit." .
Dr. Pierce's medicines are made from harmless but
efficient medicinal roots found growing in our American
forests. The Indians knew of the marvelous curative value
of some of these roots and imparted that knowledge to some
of the friendlier whites, and gradually some of the more pro
gressive physicians came to test and use them, and ever
since they have grown in favor by reason of their superior
curative virtues and their safe and harmless qualities.
Your druggists sell the "Favorite Prescription
and also that famous alterative, blood purifier and stomach
tonic, the "Golden Medical Discovert." Write to Dr.
Pierce about your case. He is an experienced physir'iri
and will treat your case as confidential and without chru ge
for correspondence. Address him at the Invalid's Hotl
and Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y., of which he is chief
It is as easy to be well as ill and much more comfort

Doctor Pierce's Pleasant Pellet cure constipation. They
are tiny, sugar-coated grannies. One little "Pellet" is a
gentle laxative, two a mild cathartic. All dealers in medi
