oHOAd- Tho stomach ia tho responsible
organ of tho eyatcm. If tho digeatiou ia im?
perfect, evory member, every gland, every
mnaolo, every norvo and fibre ie more or looa
ont of order. AU tho fluida are depraved.
The brain ia clouded. The apirita aro de?
pressed. All dyapoptica know thia to bo tho
truth. It ia not, however, half the truth.
Columna would bc required to enumerate the
pains and penalties of dyspepsia, nor could
any pen do them justice. Tens of thousands
fool them; no man can deacriho them.
Can they be prevented? Can they bo ro
lieved? Can they bo banished at onco and
forovei? Ul questionably they can. No d\a
Septic haa over taken HOSTETTER'S 8TO
[ ACH BITTERS in vain. Behove no ono who
says tho complaint ia incurable. This'crcat
vegetable stomachic will eradicate it-ia
eradicating it in thousands of cases over
which medical pract?lionera bavo shaken
their beads ominously, Baying, "Nothing
can be done."
Tho faculty haB ita fallacies. Ono of them
is, that indigestion ia tho most difficult of all
the ordiuary ailments of mankind to combat
and subdue. Thia is a mistake. Nothing can
ho easier than to conquer it if tho true spe?
cific bo administered. Tho vegetable combi?
nation which bas become famous throughout
tho civilized world aa Hostettcr's Stomach
Kit I cru, is an antidote to tho disuaso which
has never been known to fail, and fortunately
it is everywhere procurable. If you wish tb
fool with tho dyapspeia try tho pharmacopoeia
prescriptions. If you want to root it out and
prevent its roenrrence, take thc Bitters daily.
There is no discount on the testimony in its
favor. If there is a man or woman who has
ever tried it for indigestion without being
benefited, tho fact h ts not transpired. Uni?
versal, uncontiadictcd praise avouches its
wonderful topic vtriuea. M a rob 15 f
