Let not Prejudice Usurp Your Kennon.
It is a fact that, in tho minds of many
persons, a prcjudico exists against "what
? are called patent medicinos; but why
I should this provent you resorting to an
I article that has euch an array of teatime
j ny to support it as HOSTETTER'S 8TOM
? ACH RITTERS? Physicians prescribe it;
I why should you discard it? Judges, usu?
ally considered men of talent, h&vo used
I and do uso it in their families; why should
yon reject it? Let not your prejudico
usurp your reason to tho everlasting inju?
ry of your health. If yon arc sick, and
require a medicine, try thcao Bittera.
When tho bodily energies aro worn out
by anxiety and need a stimulant, thia is
the best that can bo talton. It is tempered
and modified by hygienic herbs and roots,
! which prevent it from fevering the blood;
and heneo it does not produce amore tem?
porary excitement, to bo followed by inju
I rious reaction, but communicates a pnrma
: neut potency to the entire vital organiza
! tion. Some" of its liberal constituents aro
I slightly soporific, so that in cases where
; sleeplessness is ono of the accompani
I incnts of nervous disease, a dose of it
I taken towards bed-time will tend to pro

j fainting lits, general restlessness and tho
causeless fears and distressing fancies to
which ladies arc especially aubject, under
certain morbid conditions of mind and
body peculiar to their sex, tho Ritters will
bo found tho most agreeable ami certain
of all counter-irritants.
Tito constitutionally nervous may readi?
ly keep their infirmity in constant check
by the daily use of this healthful vegeta?

their nerves," as thc phrase is, either by
