THE NERVOUS AGE.
Has the reader noticed how nervous people have become nowadays? A wellknown physician says that half the patients who come to him in these times are nerve starved; and the disorder is growing commoner every month. Restlessness, disturbed sleep, and headaches are only a part of what the patients suffer. The worst is their misery of mind. They cannot face the smallest difficulty. A slammed door tortures the raw nerves. Their minds are undecided, their tempers irritable, their conrage and concentration are all gone. The worst of it is, said the doctor, that people in this condition are tempted to fly to drugs. . Morphia, cocaine, opium, a.nd similar things have an evil fascination. Others overfeed themselves with fancy foods iu the hope of building up their nerves. The right way to treat starved nerves is to look to the blood, for a healthy, wellnourished blood-stream feeds the nerves, quickly restoring lost vitality, and bringing the mind up to its old power. Dr Williams' Pink Pills owe their wonderful reputation to their power of helping to make new blood—the only thing that will make healthy -nerves.^ Further information on the tonic treatment of " Diseases of the Nervous System " is contained in a useful booklet, which will be sent free to any applicant by the Dr Williams' Medicine Co., Box 845, G.P.0., Wellington.
