IT IS AMAZING-That the feeble
should totter, with uncertain atepa, over
the faco of the earth, in dangar every day
of falling victims to the morbid influences
by which we are all surrounded, when a
teated and proven vegetable tonic, capable
of endowing thom with the vigor they
need, is procurable in every city, town and
aettlement. It might reasonably bo
thought that after the twelve yearn expe?
rience which the world has had of HOS
TETTER'S BITTERS, all would know
that its effect is to prevent diaease.
At thia season the atmoaphero ia sur?
charged with the seeda of intermittents,
r?mittente, rheumatism, pulmonary dis?
orders, bilious complaints and the like.
Person? whose nervous systems are re?
laxed are the first to succumb to these
distempers. Brace up the physical enor
giea then with this potential vegetable
touic. It ia the most powerful r?cup?rant
which the botanic kingdom has ever
yielded to patient research and experi?
ment. Try it. The blindest disciple of
the old medical dogmas will at least admit
that a tome and alterative, compounded
of approved herbs, roots and barks, can
doro harm, while tho teatimony of thou?
sands invites ? trial of its virtues.
Vigor ia the thing most needed in these
oases as woll as in dyspepsia and nervous
affections, and Hoalotter's Bitters is the
safest, [surest and most wholesome
strengthening preparation that bunnin
skill has yet concocted.
Hundreds of physicians have abandoned
all tho officinal receipts and proscribed
thia harmless tonic as a preventive and
cure for all cases of chills and fever.
