Sot N. Fremont St, Baltimore
During the war I wai 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
sis, which kept me in bed six
months, nnd the best doctors
in the city said I could not
live. I suffered fearfully from
indigestion, and for over two
years could not eat solid food
and for a large portion of the
time was unable to retain even
liquid nourishment. I tried
lirown's Iron Iiittersand now
after 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,
