WHAT XS A TONIC1-Bear this in mind
that although a tonio is, to a certain extent, a
stimulant-a stimulant, unmodified by any me?
dicinal substances, is not a tonic, but A nr.nn.i
TANT. In HOSTETTER'S STOMACU BIT
TKRS, there is a stimulating element of the
purest grade, manufactured in this or any
other country. Eveiy fiery and corrosive oil
or acid which contaminates thc ord) lary
liquors of commerce, is expelled from th- rye
spirit which forms the alcoholic basis ot thc
BITTERS, by careful and repeated rectifica?
tion. The juices of the valuable roots, barks
and herbs, infused info this wholesome pro?
duct of the iiuc8t grain, still further modify its
nature; so that it becomes, in fact, a simple
diffusive agent, minus all tho heady and brain
exciting properties which belong, more or
loss, to all liquors in a raw stato. lt is merely
the safe and harmless vehicle which renders
tho medicinal virtuos of the preparation
effective-increasing their active power, and
diffusing them through tho system, Hence
tho pleasant and gentle glow which is experi
irraoed after taking a dose of tho BITTERS.
Instead of creating headache, aa unmcdicateel
stimulants aro apt to do, this salubrious tonic
ii tho best known remedy for that complaint.
It calms and soothe cerebral excitement,
strengthens tho nerves, promotes tho secre?
tion of tho gastric juice, invigoratcH thc
bowels, determines the Hinds to tho surface,
improves tho appetite, increases the animai
vigor, regulates organic action, and, from its
mild yet effective alterativo qualities, is the
vory beet preparation that can ho administer?
ed to tho weaker sex in the peculiar diflicnltief
to which their organization subjects them.
