joi N. Fremont St., Baliimors
During the war I was in
jured in the stomach by a piece
of a shell, and have suffered
from it ever since. About four
years ago it brought on paraly
tis, which kept me in bed six
months, and the best doctors
in the city said I could not
live. I suffered fearfully from
indigestion, and for overtwo
years could not eat solid food
and for a large portion of the
time was unable to retain even
liquid nourishment. I tried
Brown's Iron Bitters and now
alter taking two bottles I am
able to get up and go around
and am rapidly improving.
BROWN'S IRON BITTERS is
a complete and sure remedy for
Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Malaria,
Weakness and all diseases requir
ing a true, reliable, non-alcoholic
tonic. It enriches the blood, gives
new life to the muscles and tone
to the nerves.
