A SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY.
A New nnd Most Important Theory an Ono
or the Most Vital Questions
of the Day.
If anyone had Informed Ouccn Elizabeth In
her palmiest days that she could havo beon
seated In her palace In London aud conversed
with Sir Walter lUlolgli In his North Carolina
homo; receiving a reply from him within an
hour's tlmo Bho would have deolarod It to bo
umlraole. And yet had thoy llvod in the
presout day this apparent mlraclo would
most roadlly havo boen witnessed and not
seem at all strange or unnatural. Tho truth
is now principles aro coming Into existence
nnd tho operation of many laws unknown In
tho past Is being fully understood In the
present. In no way docs this faetcoino more
lorcibly to the mind than In tho caro and treat
ment ui tue numan uouy. Millions or peo-
ple havo died In past ages from eomo lnslg-
nlllcloutor easily controlled cnuso which Is
thoroughly undendood now and readily
handled. Consumption during tho ontlro past
bus been considered nu Incurable disease. And
yet It Is demonstrated that It has been and can
o cureu oven uuer it lias had a long run. Dr.
I ellx Oswald has Inst cntitrllmii.! nnmhiu
article on this subjoot to the Popular Science
.luiiiiiij. nu rcgurus consumption as pui-
inonury scrofula. The Impurities of tho blood
produce a constant Irritation in tbo lungs thus
dosttoylng their dolicato tissues and causing
deuth. Ills theory shows conclusively that
consumption is a blood disease. It has Its
origin primarily In a deranged condition of tho
Kiuneysor liver tno only two organs of tho
body aside from the lungs that purify tho
blood. Wheu tbe kidneys or liver are diseased
thoy aro In a sore or lacerated state which
communlcatos poison to cvory ounce of blood
that passes through them. This poisonous
blood circulates through thoBystemand comes
causing decomposition in the fliioly formed"
cells of the lungs. Any diseased part of tha body
has contaminating power and yet tho blood
nriiivu jo uiu mo ui iuo system is urougnt into
direct contact with theso poisoned organs
thus carrying contagion to all parts ut tho
body lllsliop Jesso T. Heck D. D LL. D.
whose death has beon so recently regretted Is
reported to havo died of pneumonia which
medical authorities nfUru) Indicates a diseased
condition of tho kidneys. It Is well known
moreover that for soveral years ho has been
inu vicuiu in scvero Kiunoy trouble and tho
pneumonia which tlnallytorminatcd bis IHo was
only the last result of tbo previous blood pois-
oning. Tho deadly matter which Is loft In tho
lungs uy iuo impure oioou clogs up and llnally
chokes tho patient. Wheu this Is accomplished
rapidly It Is called pneumonia or quick con-
sumption; when slowly consumption but In
any event It is the result ot Impure blood
caused by diseased klduoys and liver.
Theso arc facts of science and vouched for by
all tho leading physicians of the day. Thoy
show tho desirability nay tho necessity or
keeping these most Important oriraus In perfect
condition not only to Insure health but also to
escupo death. It bus been fully shown to the
satisfaction of nearly evory unprejudiced
mind that Warnor's Sato Kidney aud Ltvor
Curo Is tho only known remedy that can euro
und keep In health tho great blood-purifying
organs of tho body. It acts directly upon theso
lumuuuiB jiuunuK nu iiicftrs wnicn may nave
formed In them aud placing them In a condi-
tion to purify and not poison tho blood. This is
no Idlo statoinont or false thoory. Mr. W. C.
llcach foreman of tho liuilalo (N. Y.) ltubber
type foundry was given up to do by both phy-
sicians und friends. For four years ho had a
terrible cough accompanied by night swoats
chills und all tbo well-known symptoms. Ho

says: "I llnally concluded to try Warnor's
