gL i . fl NEURALGIA The real meaning of tho word Neu- ralgia is nerve-pain, and any ono who lias suffered with the malady will not be so anxious to know of its nature as to hoar of its antldoto. Though scarcely recognized by the profession and people half a century ago, it Is now one of the most common and pain- ful aliments which afflict humanity.' As now generally understood the word signifies an affection of the nervous system, with pain in the course of the principal nerves. The two great causes of Neuralgia are, Impoverishment, of the lllood and Deficiency of Nerve Force; and the treatment of it is not so obscure as many would be led to suppose. The first thing is to relieve the pain, which is done more quickly and satis- factorily by ST. JACOliS OIL than by any other remedy known; the second object Is to remove the cause, which Is accomplished by the abundant use of nourishing food, of a nature to strengthen and give tone to both tho muscular and nervous systems.
