The SYMPTOMS of Liver Comhlini are a bitter
or bad taste in the mouth; Pain in the back, Sides.or 11
Joints, often mistaken for Rheuimatisni;. Sour
omach; Loss of Appetlte; Bowels alrnately Il
costive and lax; Head che; Loss of Memory, with a
painful sensation of hiaing failed to do som'ething
which aught to have been done; Debility; Low
Sptits; a thick, yellow appearance of the Skin and '
Eyes; a dry Cough, often mistaken for Consumption.
Sometimes many of these symptoms attend the
disease, at others very few; but the LIVER, the largest
organ in the body, is generally the seat of the disease,
and if not Regulated in time, great suffering, wretch.
edness and DEATH will ensue.
The following highly-esteemed persons attest to the
virtues of StMMONs LIVER RGUL.ATOR: Gen. W. S.
