Is a notorious fact. It is the rctoro ol vital
importance to check maladies in their
birth, ere they have a chance to develop
other and more dangerous disorders. As
a means ol checking complaints which,
if allowed to proceed, finally disorder
the entire system, Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters is a medicine the use of which
cannot be too strongly urged upon the
sick and lceble. Tho functions aro regu
lated by it, It insures the acquisition of
vigor to the debilitated, and it substitutes
a cheerful condition of mind for gloom
and despondency. Dyspepsia, constipa
tion, liver complaint, and kidney and
bladder troubles yield to its remedial in
fluence; it counteracts a tendency to gout
and rheumatism, and invigorates the
nervous. Moreover, it is derived from
purciy ootamcai sources, aim in this, as
hi every other respect, is superior to the
mineral remedies of the pharmacopeia.
Worth Its WcUht in Hold.
Undoubtedly the greatest modern dis
covery in medicine is DaCosta's Radi
cal Cure lor dyspepsia, sick headache,
sour stomach, eostiveness, biliousness,
loss of appetite, dittress after eating, anil
all disorders caused by Indigestion or a
deranged liver. Its results are astonish
ing, and sure relief is guaranteed in
every case where it is faithlully used. It
tones up the stomach, regulates the
liver, restores the natural appetite,
strengthens the delicate and expels all
morbid humors from the system. Ty
phoid and bilous fever might, in almost
every case, be prevented by its timely
use. Trial size 25 cents. A very few
doses will relieve, and a little pcrsever
ancecureyou. Sold by Barclay Bros.
