Inability to Sleep is Nature's Plain
Warning of an Exhausted Nerv
DR. A. W. CHASE'S
When you overwork any muscle or
thev tire and must have
rest. What is true of muscle is doubly
true of the brain, as from it emanates
all power to work, to act. to think.
The brain is full of little cells that dur
ing the waking hours are never quiet J
in their efforts to furnish to every or-!
gan the power to do its duty. Rob
these little cells of their rest at night!
keep them at work all the time, andj
soon they tire, refuse to act, fail to
generate nerve force and the system!
goes to ruin. Bromides, sedatives, I
opiates only hasten the end they do
not build up. they tear down. The'
true remedy, the only cure, lies in Dr.j
A. W. Chase's Nerve Pills, a medicine
that revitalizes, reinvigorates. and by
properly nourishing these little cells.'

Mrs. Fred Wholeben, of Glade Run,;
Warren, Pa., says:
"I was Induced to use Dr. A. W.
Chase's Nerve Pills for excessive nerv
ousness. I was so nervous I could not
bear a noise or much talking. I waa
very forgetful my mind seemed dulL
I was listless and tired all the time.
The result of the use of the box I got
was remarkable. They toned up the
nerves and system generally and I
work well again, am strong my mind
is clear and noise and talk no longer
bother me. I am much pleased with
the pil"s and can recommend them
highly to anyone who feels as I did."

says: "My wife had inflammatory rheu
matism in every muscle and joint; her
suffering was terrible and her body
and face were swollen almost beyoad

weeks and had eight physicians, but
received no benefit until ehe tried the
Mystic Cure for Rheumatism. It gave
immediate relief and she was able to
walk about In three days. I am sure
it saved her life." Sold by Otto Grot
