there all night I cannot be sure of

Growing up with the
Ve arc growing up with tlic
country. Wc commenced a few
years ago and we have grown
very rapidly. At home we arc
a cause of marvel and wonder so
rapid has been our growth. We
are going to the remotest parts
of tlie country to grow up with
them as they settle and grow up.
At the same time we are going
to remain where we have been
for a long time and continue to
grow as the country grows. We
arc not omnipresent. No! but
we propose to penetrate every
settlement where the U. S. mails
go and there can be found a place
in which goods are sold. We
can now be found in every city,
large town, considerable village
or small hamlet where the wants
of the community are supplied.
Who are we ? Brown's Iron Bit
ters. The people need this rem
edy. They demand it and the
dealers must supply it. The sales
in 1885 were more than twenty
times those of 1880, because
Brown's Iron Bitters is the best
strengthening and purifying med
icine known. It cures all dis
eases arising from weak, watery,
vitiated blood and strengthens
the nervous forces. It furnishes
relief to the overworked brain
and rest to the tired body. Its
enriching, vitalizing, strengthen
ing qualities do this. This is the
cause of its great growth in pop
ularity, of the words of commen
dation it receives from physicians,
chemists, and the people gener
ally. It will continue its pro
gressive march and reach every
place in the country where there
are sufferers desiring relief.
Rheumatism is directly due to
an enfeebled condition of the
blood. Neuralgia to the same
cause and its action upon the
nerves. These troubles, fitly de
scribed in the one word, " torture,"
yield to the use of Hrown Iron Bit
ters. Malaria fevers, prevalent in
low lands and places with in
sufficient or bad drainage, are
cured by Brown's Iron Bitters.
Spring fever promptly dislodged.
Don't use quinine or whisky
any more. By using these you
may cause congestion or neural
gia. Deafness frequently follows
the continued use of quinine.
Brown's Iron Bitters contains no
whisky. It relieves spring
fever and promotes the health of
its victims. Used occasionally
it will prevent attacks from
malaria. It is sold everywhere.
Imitations are attempted. Don't
be deceived. It costs you no
more to buy the genuine Brown's
Iron Bitters than an imitation.
The dealer may advise you to
buy the spurious, if he does its
only that he may make a better
profit. Trade mark and crossed
red lines on the wrapper of the
genuine. Made only by Brown
