Truth and Poetry. Milton puts into
the mouth of Lucifer, in "ParndHo Lnt, '
thesu memorable words "To bo weuk is
miserable." Never was 11 truer ecntencu
written than this siippo.cd to be wrung
from tho arch-fiend in liij impotence and
agony. Every victim of nervous debility,
or of that depressing languor which U ono
of the accompaniments of dyspepsia and
biliousness, can testify to thu ini.crj
of mind and body which thoy involve.
Tho motive power of thu system is par
ially paralyzed ; tho mind is haunted by
uuxiuty and fear ; and tho hUllurer is as in
capable of applying himself energetically
to uny kind or business as if he were under
tho .benumbing influence of catilupjy.
This terrible mental and physical condi
tion need not, however, bu endured for
forty-eight hour by any human being
Plantation Bitters is an absolute
specific for nil thu torments which n do
ranged Ftomach, 11 disordered liver, and
shattered nerves, superinduce.
