CONVALESCENCE-Atter a disease
has boon conquered, thero is still the
weakness that it leaves behind it to bo
removed. Convalescence is a tedious af?
fair. If the enfeebled and llaccid mus?
cle, the shattered nerves, the thin and
water- blood could speak, they would cry
for bein In too many casca such help as
is (riven them is not of the right kind. The
liory stimulants of commerce do harm.
They kindle a temporary llame, which is a
mockery. Their effect passes, and the last
state of him who uses them is worse than
the tirat. Not such ia thc effect of H08
TETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS. There
is no drawback to its toning properties, lt j
has been found THE GREAT MEDICINE
OF THE AGE for sustaining and bracing
up tho enfeebled constitution-no matter
how much debilitated-as it not only be?
stows strength, but soothes the nervous
system and allays all excitement of the
brain. Wnilo this excellent preparation
possesses such effective properties, it is
perfectly safe and isagreeablo to the taste.
Attempts havo been made to rival it.
They have failed. Can it bo necessary to
say why they havefailod? A?k the recover?
ed dyspeptics, bilious sufferers, victima
of fever and ague and nervous subjects,
who havo experienced its effects, what they
think of it. Aak TURU, and bo guided by
what they say.
As a household medicine it is available
at all times in cases of indigestion; bilious
and other fevers, and all diseases arising
from an impure condition of the stomach
or liver. _ Dec 18 fG
