Below wo give a number ol reasons
why people should buy their groceries
trom Pettis & Bird :
1st. Because theirBtocks is the largest,
freshest and choicest In tho city.
2nd. Because they sell goodsof every
Kind cheaper than any other house In the
3rd. Because they deliver goods more
promptly and In better shape than any
other house in the city.
4th. Because they keep the most com
plete stock, and persons desiring to
purchase different kinds of goods are not
compelled to go elsewhere because
Messrs. P. & B. have not got the goods

why our readers should buy their goods

In order to guard against results ut
terly subversive of health, it Is absolute
y essential that the grand thoroughfare

they are not, the bile is mlsdlreoted Into
the blood ; the ilver . becomes torpid ;
viscid bullous matter gets into the stom

aches ensue, and other symptoms are
pioduced, which a prolongation ot the

The acquisition of vital energy is the
stepping stone to health. When the
system l icks vitality, the various organs
flag !n their duty, become c'ironlcally Ir
regular, and disease Is eventually Institut
ed. To prevent this unhappy state ol
things, the debilitated system should be
built up by the use ot that Inimitable
tonic. Hostetter's Stomach Bitters which
Invigorates the digestive organs, and In
sures the thorough conversion ot food
Into blood of a nourishing quality, from
whence every muscle, nerve and fiber ac
quire unwonted supplies ot vigor, and tbe
whole system experiences the beneficial
eflect. Appetite returns, tbe system is
refreshed by healthful slumber, the
neryes grow strong and calm, the de
spondency begotten ot chronlo Indiges
tion and an uncertain state of health dis
appears, and i hat sallow appearance of
the skin peculiar to habitual Invalids, and
persons deficient In Vital energy, Is re
