THK SEROS OF SICKNESS_?aron Mun?
chausen tells a story of a post-boy's horn, wi ?ch
had a number of wicked tunen blown into it one
frosty night, but made no response. Neverthe?
less, when it was hung before a hot tire, the tuni s,
which bad been frozen in, thawed ont, to the
amazement of all present. Just so the human
system, subjected to injurious influences during
the winter, somoliincs give no token of the effect
they bave produced upon it, until the moist at?
mosphere of spring developes tneir fruitfe. Many
spring diseases arc tho result of winter impru?
dences, and great and especial care should bc
taken of the system in the cold season, ?Jo that it
may be in a sound and vigorous condition when
thc malarious fogs of March and April make their
appearance. To this end, strengthen the stomach
and tho genoral organization at this season with
H08TETTEIVS BITTERS. Tako this pleasant
vegetable antidote in advanco of the uprising of
the mophitio mists and vapors, which produce
chills and fever, and other miasmatic diseases.
Remember that it is a preventive medicine-na
powerful to protect as to restore. Tho stomach is
apt to bo overtaxed at this time of the year. It is
a period devoted to dinner and supper parties,
and luxurious living generally. Feasting and late
hours weaken tho digestivo organs and disorder
tho liver. The effect of tho Bitters is to invigorate
tho ono and regulato thc other. There is no
mouth in tho twelve when a tonic and alterative is
moro generally neodod than in this, and thore is
no preparation of that nature so thoroughly salu?
brious, so bracing, and so entirely free from undue
exciting properties, as this celebrated vegetable
cordial. March 14 Gt
