IT IS AMAZING-That th? ~foebhs
should totter, with uncertain ateps, over
tho h 30 of tho earth, in danger every day
of falling victims to the morbid influences
by which we are all surrounded, whon a
tested and proven vegetable tonic, oapable
of endowing thom with the vigor they
need, ie procurable in every city, town and
settlement. It might reasonably be
thought that after the twelvo years expe?
rience which tho world has had of HOS
TETTEIt'S BITTERS, all would know
that its effect is to prevent discaec.
At this season thc atmosphere is sur?
charged with tho seeds of intermittents,
remittents, rhonmatism, pulmonary dis?
orders, bilious complaints and tho like.
Persons whoso nervous systems aro re?
laxed aro the first to succumb to those
distempers. Braco up the physical ener?
gies then with this potential vegetable
touic. It is the most powerful r?cup?rant
which the botanic kingdom has over
yioldcd to pationt research and experi?
ment. Try it. Tho blindest disciplo of
tho old medical dogmas will at least admit
that a tonio and alterative, compounded
nf approved) herbs, roots and barks, can
do no harm, while the tostiraony of thou?
sands invitee a trial of its virtues.
Vigor is the thing most needed in these
cases as well as in dyspepsia and nervous
affections, and Hostetter's Bitters is the
safest, [surest and most wholesome
strengthening preparation that human
skill has yet coucocted.
Hundreds of physicians havo abandoned
all tho officinal receipts and prescribed
this harmless tonic as a preventive and
euro for all cases of chills aud fever.
IT is a matter of congratulation that we
have at last bad a reliable Tonic intro?
duced in Pankniu's Hepatic Bitters; manu?
factured at tho South by Dr. C. P. Panknin,
tho well known Charleston Chemist; and
which can bo used by all persons, regard?
less of ago or sox, who require a touic
medicine. Ask your family physician, and
ho will bo sure to recommend them. For
sale by all druggists.
