so good that farmers are willing to sell

Through the Weary Hour
Of many a night, made doubly long by its
protracted agony, the rheumatic sufferer
tosses to and fro on his sleepless couch, vain-
ly praying for the rest which only comes by
fits and starts. His malady is one which or-
dinary medicines fail to relieve, but thcri is
ample evidence to prove that the efficient
blood depurent, Hcstetter's Stomach Bitters,
affords the rheumatic a reliable means of re-
lief. Check the : malady in itaindpient stages
when. the first premonitory twinges come
on, with this agreeable medicine, and avoid
years of torture. Whatever be tho rationalo
of the active influence of the Bitters
upon this malady, certain it is that no
evidence relating to its effect is moro
direct and positive than that which re-
lates to its action in caes of rheu-
