Lightning Kills Few.
In 1906 lightning killed only 169
people in this whole country. One's
chances of death by lightning are
ess than two in a million. The
chance of death frtom liver, kidney
or stomach trouble is vastly greater,
but not if Electric Bitters be used,
as Robert Madsen, of West Bur
lington, Ia., proved. Four doctors
gave him ap after eight months of
suffering from virulent liver trouble
and yeilow jaundice. He was then
completely cared by Electric Bit
ters. They're the best stomach, liver,
nerve and kidney remedy and blood
purifier on earth. Only 50c at Penn
