has boon conquered, thero is still the
weakness that it leaves behind it to be
removed. Convalescence is a tedions af?
fair. If tho enfeebled and flaccid mus?
cles, tho shattered nerves, thc thin and
watery blood could speak, they would cry
for holp. In too many cases such help as
is given them is not of tho right kind. The
flory stimulants of commerce do harm.
They kindlo a temporary flame, which is a
mockery. Their effect passes, and the last
state of him who uses them is worso than
tho first. Not such is tho effect of HOS
TETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS. There
is no drawback to its toning properties. It
has been found THE GREAT MEDICINE
OP THE AGE for sustaining and bracing
up the enfeebled constitution-no matter
how much debilitated-as it not only bo
stows strength, but soothes tho nervous
system and allays all excitement of the
brain. Wnilo this excellent preparation
possesses such effectivo properties, it is
perfectly safe and is agreeable to thc taste.
Attempts have beon made to rival it.
They havo failed. Can it bo necessary to
say why they havo failed? Ask tho recover?
ed dyspeptics, bilious sufferers, victims
of fever and ague and norvous subjects,
who have experienced its effects, what they
think of it. Ask THEM, and bo guided by
what they say.
As a household medicino it is available
at all times in cases of indigestion; bilious
and other fevers, and all diseases arising
from an impure condition of tho stomach
