THE BATTLE FRONT
Petrograd, Russia, Feb. 16 (Via
London.) The number of head and
arm wounds of the men at the front
is enormous, for men in trenches ex expose
pose expose only their heads and arms. Many
hundreds are hit in the head and
death does not result from the wound.
Occasionally one may see the slightly
wounded walk back with heads bound
up or arm3 in slings. Motor trucks
loaded with wounded tear along the
roads leading" back from the extreme
front. Perhaps forty per cent of the
wounded are back on the firing line
after three months' care and rest in a
hospital. It all depends on a man's
health and blood. If the blood is pure
and good, the soldier gets the first
aid, proper treatment and his wounds
heal by first intention.
Good blood is everything to every
man. It means fresh strong nerves,
good digestion, good circulation. Those
who have used Dr. Pierce'3 Golden
Medical Discovery marvet at the way
it checks blood diseases. See a man
today with skin all broken out; see
him a few weeks later after using the
"Discovery," his skin is all cleared up,
eyes bright, and he is contented with
The foundation of good health is
good blood! Are yo upale? Are you
weak? Are you no longer ambitious
or energetic? Have you pimples or
boils? Do you suffer from headaches,
low spirits? Then you are anaemic
your blood is thin, lacking in healthy,
strength-giving red corpuscles. Then
your blood is impure and your liver
is not "up to its task of clearing the
blood from the poisons accumulated.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov Discovery
ery Discovery is a temperance remedy that will
restore to you rich, health-giving
blood a redy proved by experience
