Still More Counterfeiting.
The Secret Service has unearthed an
other band of counterfeiters and secured
a large quantity of bogus bills, which
are so cleverly executed that the aver
age person would never suspect them of
being spurious. Things of great value
are alwavs selected bv counterfeiters for
imitation, notably the celebrated Hos
tetter's Stomach Bitters, which has
many imitators but no equals for indi
gestion, dyspepsia, constipation, ner
vousness and general oebmty. ine
Bitters sets things right in the stomach,
and when the stomach is in good order
it makes good blood and plenty of it.
In this manner the Bitters get at the
seat ot strength and vitality, and restore
vigor to the weak and debilitated. Be
ware of counterfeits when buying.
