In order to guard against results ut
terly subversive of health, it is absolute'
ly essential that the grand thoroughfare
or avenue of tho system, the bowels,
should be re-opened as speedily as pos
stble when they become obstructed. If
they are not, the bile Is misdirected Into
tbe blood ; the liver becomes torpid ;
viscid blllious matter gets into the stom
ach, and produces Indigestion; head
aches ensue, and other symptoms are
produced, which a prolongation of the
exciting cause only tends to aggravate.
The aperient proncrties of Hostettcr's
Stomach Bitters constitute a most useful
agent In overcoming constriction ot tbe
bowels, and promoting a regular habit
of body. It is infinitely superior to the
drastlo cathartics frequently used for the
purpose, slnco It docs not, like them, act
violently, but produces a natural, pain
less eflect, which' docs not Impair the
tone of the evacuatory organs, which it
invigorates Instead of weakening, The
stomach and liver, also, Indeed the en
tire system, U strengthened and regu
lated by it.

It is not advisable for any of us to over
task our energies, corporeal or mental,
but In tbe eager pursuit of wealth or
fame or knowledge, how many transgress
this salutary rule, It must be a matter
of great importance to all wbo do so To
know how they caa regain the vigor so
recklessly expended. The' remedy Is
neither costly or difficult to obtain. Hob
tetter's Stomach Bitters Is procurable !n
every city, town ana settlement in
America, and It compensates tor a drain
of bodily or mental energy more effec
tually than any Invigorant ever pre
scribed or advertised. Laloring men,
athlete, students, journalists, lawyers,
clergymen, physicians, all bear testimony
to Its wondrously renovating powers.
