Fashion makes certain wise laws

who break these laws and assume too

the heart of everything fashion die

who adorned her fingers and toes
with them, but that is no reason why
you need look likea heathen goddess,
or as if you were anxious to let the
world see at one time just how many
golden circlets you possess. You,
who have the beauty of youth, do
not need to wear jewelry a little
ring if you will, a modest brooch,
and perhaps a bangle on your wrist,
but not an arm covered- with them.

Dear Gents : I desire to sav to vou that I
have suffered for many years with a very seri

every medicine I could hear of but nothing
done me any appreciable good until I wa ad
vised to try your Great South American Nervine
Tonic and Stomach and Liver Cure, and since
uslne several bottles of it I must say that I am
surprised at its wonderful powers to cure the
Btoinach and general nervous system. If every
one knew the value of this remedy as I do, you
would not be able to supply the demand.

and I consider that every bottle did for me on
hundred dollars worth of good, because I havo
not had a good night'a sleep lor twenty years
on account of irritation, pain, horrible dreams,
and general nervous prostration, which has
been caused by chronic indigestion and dys
pepsia of the stomach and by a broken dowa
cond ition of my nervous system. But now I can
lie down and sleep all n ight as sweetly as a baby,

there has ever been a medicine introduced into
this country which will at all compare with
this Ncrviae Tonio as a cure for the stomach."
