No one has any doubt of their ability to get there. There will also bo a spring drive on this side of the occani because March is the year's " blue Monday." It is the most fatal month of the year. March nnd April is a time when resistance usually is at lowest ebb. It is a tryinfi season for the " run-down" man. 'But medical science steps in, and says, " it need not be" 1 We should cultivate a love of health, a sense of responsibility for the cate of onr bodies. Do not allow the radchinery of the body to clog. Put the Btomacb and liver in proper condition. Take Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, to be had at most drug stores in tablet or liquid form, tablets fifty cents a vial, composed of native herbs. This puts the stomach and liver in proper condition. You may be plodding along, no spring, no elasticity, no vim, but as soon as you have put the body into its normal physical condition-oiled the machinery, aa it were-you will find new vim, vigor and vitality within you. A little "pep," and we laugh and live. Try it now. Send Dr.Pierce, Invalids' Hotel, Buffalo, N. Y., or branch office, BricigeburR,Ont., 10c. for trial pkg. The prime necessity of life is health. With spirit and energy you have the power to force yourself mto action. The Golden Sledical DIs- government ammunition plant at Sit- covery is tho spring tonic which you need.
