The secret of hale and vigorous old age.
lies not only in taking care ot one's
health In early life, by the observance of
sanitary rules, but also by Judicious
medication when the premonitory symp
toms of bodily disorder manifest them
selves. Indigestion, bowel and liver
complaints, are fruitful causes ol injury
to the aotistitutlon. These diseases
should be therefore, checked without de
lay. The best medicine for tho purpose
Is Hostetter's Stomach Bitters. This
standard preparation disciplines the di
gestive organs, gives renewed impetus
to the bilious secretive function, and
exerts a benelleial Influence upon the
