lines with the object of having at every
table in every dining car over the en

flowers at every meal, says the Cleve

flowers are a part of the trip over that
road and not precious little souvenirs.

has been recognized as the safest and
most reliable for over 50 years. No
other can approach its record of cures
of stomach, liver and bowel complaints.
If you have never tried the bitters you
really ought to do so today. If you
are subject to attacks of heartburn,
bloating, vomiting, cramps, diarrhoea,
backache, poor appetite, dyspepsia, in
digestion, costiveness, female roub!es
