Dear Sib : My wile has been using
dally your bitters, and I am glad to say
she has been greatly benefited. She is
now stronger and in better general health
than she has been for years, and I feel
certain that her present gook health is
the result ot using a few bottles of the
Home Bitters. She Joins me in thanking
you tor your kindness. My wile has lm
proved so much that she does not neea
the Bitters now, but thinks she will send
for a fow bottles when cold weather sets
in. I commenced this letter at Uie re
aueit ot a trlend greatly suffering from
bronchial affection, which has brought
on general weakness. He asked me to
order lor blm a half dozen bottles. Send
them to Key. W. F. Pearson, Donalds
vllle, S. C. Mrs. May, a lady of our
town, says the bottle 1 gave her did her
a great deal of good, and that she would
order more soon. I am, as ever, your
friend. Bxv. J. tt. Rilxy.

Achtne- Heads aad fneoey Herves
Are olten soothed by Hostetter's Stool
ach bitters, because that searching cor
recti veuess completely removes the causes
ot brain and nerve excitement, which
are to be found in derangement of the
itomacb, and ot its associate organs, the
l'.ver and bowels. It is a truth which
cinnot be too earnestly insisted upon
that the effect ot mere sedatives and nar-
coUcs, like bromide of potassium, valer
ian, chloral, hydrate and opium, is less
appreciable the longer they are used, and
that they can never permanently relieve
nervous excitability, because they can
not remedy the weakness and organic de
ran cement which lies at its roots. Hos
tetter's Bitters, however, can and does
cure nervous maladies, for the reason al
readr stated. Sick headache, restless
ness at night, vertigo, mental heaviness
and depression of spirits, as well as the
dyspeptic condition ot the stomach, aud
torpidity ot the liver and bowels, which
giye rise to them, are entirely obviated
by this benign alterative tonic.

We were expossd last week to a pit!
less storm.that wet our teet and stockings
and indeed our person all over. In fact
we took a cracking cold, which - brought
sore throat and severe symptoms of fever.
The good wife asserted her authority,
plunged our teet in hot water, wrapped
us in hot blankets, and sent our faithful
son for a bottle ot Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
It is a splendid medicine pleasant to
take, and did the job. We slept soundly
through the night and awoke well the
next morning. We know we owe our
quick recovery to the Pectoral, and shall
not hesitate to recommend it to all who
need such a medicine. TthuaeanaTexas)
