money Is ordered paid to him the ex
ecutor will lose their commission upon
it, wh'ch amount ea h year to I per

The men who are engaged in intro

women in every walk of life who have
been relieved by this new tonic.
A ttinna ntftcea rectt'e.l tha, nthst .lav
was one from a railroad man. Frank J
C. Wbinery. who reside ia Jersey
Mr. rYhioery stated as follows:
"I have been feeling run down for
several year and could never find
any relief from the nervous state into
which I had fallen. I was able to do
mv work, but it required at) effort,
whereat I had formerly been able to
do anything with pleasurable ambi
tion. I was easily tired, and could get
no benefit from my sleep. While in
New York I heard about tbe new tonic.
Tona Vita, and purchased a bottle. I
found that it waa everything that had
been represented. After tht first ftw
doses I experienced relief, tatd aow I
feel better than I have felt for yeara .
This ia entirely owing to Tona Vita."
"Mr. Wbinery la only on of many
hundreds," stated John Beaaley Webb,
the English expert, who ia assisting
in intrmfWcing Tona Vita. "Brooklyn
men and women are coming in every
day telling ut bow much better they
are feeling since thev took Tona Vita.
Many of them suffer from entirely
different symptoms. One woman may
tell me that she bad formerly suf
fered from dirty and fainting spells:
that her nerves were constantly on
edge and the would jump at tbe
slightest noise; that she could not
do her housework, because she always
leu so tired. Ihe next minute an
! other woman will come in and tay
i thai More taking Tona Vita the ex
perienced severe pain in the head
1 anil back; that there wa always an
internal gnawing sensation; that she
was constantly bilious and had no
appetite, etc. But they all express
themselves as feeling 'run down,' and
this is one of the surest symptoms of
