PUESCHIBUVG FOU I HK PEOPLE:-Wu
liavo dispensarios, hospitals, noble institutions ol
all kinds, for tho relief of human ills. Every
thoughtful citizen appreciates tbe value of these
establishments for thc amelioration of suffering.
But they do not cover tho w hole ground; indeod,
it is impossible, in tho nature of things, that tho
amount of good they do should bo at all in pro?
portion to tho popular need. They are confined,
principally, to largo citiea. To tho sick man in
thc remote West, for cxamplo, of what UBe is tho
New York City Hospital, or tho New York Dispen?
sary? But, although asylums for invalids aro
not to bo found everywhere, an unequalled tonic
and alterativo is within tho reach of all. Thero
is no settlement that bears a name, within thc
limits of tho United States, whero HOSTETTER'S
STOMACH BITTEMS is not procurable. It is a
medicino for tho whole community, easily obtain?
able by all its members.
At this period of tho year, when thc "slant sun
of February" is beginning to evoko unwholesome
vapors from thc earth, and tho "fever and aguo
season" is closo at band, this excellent vegetable
preparation should bo taken as a fortiflor of tho
system. All complaints proceeding from indiges?
tion are rampant when the winter breaks np in a
.'ground thaw;" simply because no sensible pre?
cautions aro, as a rule, taken to prevent them.
Forestall thc evils that lio perdu in many a
marsh, and swamp, and pool, ready to pounce
upon tin* neglectful as soon as tho sun shall have
liberated tho spring minsma from tho reeking
soil. Escape billious attacks, colic and all mala?
rious endemics and epidemics, by strengthening
and regulating tho digestive, Bccrctivo and dis?
charging organs with the most efficacious and
balsamic of all vegetable invigorants. Dyspepsia
is always aggravated by tho damps of early
soring, and Shakspt aro tells us that "tho sun, in
Mareil, doth nourish agues." Against both these
complaints Hostottcr's Stomach Bitters aro Ibo

To Consumptives.-Tho advertiser, having

they will find a Sou: Cu HF. FOU CONSOMPTION,
