Ends Hunt for Rich Girl.
Often the hunt for a rich wlfo ends
when the man moots a woman that
uses Electric Hitters. Her strong
nerves tell in a bright brain and even
temper. Her peach-bloom complexion
and ruby lips result from her puro

sleep; her elastic step from firm, free
muscles, all telling of the health and
strength Electric Bitters give a wo
man, and the freedom from indiges
tion, backache, headache, falnUng and
dizzy spells they promote. Every
where they are woman's favorite rem
