An eminent physician estimates that many of the failures
of business men nre directly traceable to a debilitated
physique. They overwork brain and Ixxly nnd when danger
comes—meeting no firm opponent —it hurls them into the deep
abyss of utter failure.
This is a scientific fact. Don’t blame yonr luck or fate or
fortune. Rcali/.c that the fault lies within yourself, and then
and think the matter out Weak nerves spring from impure
blood. Impure blood comes from a weak stomach. Weak
ness in the stomach means catarrh of the lining of the stomach,
just os weakness in the kidneys or liver or lungs means catarrh
of the lining of these organs. Cure the catarrh, and health
The medicine to do this Ls Pc-ru-na. Your brain will
brighten, your weakness will disappear —the horizon of life
will appear brilliantly hopeful —you'll find yourself made of the
stuff which produces successful men. It is strictly a food for
the entire body. It makes manly men and beautiful women.
