"I suffered so with Nervous
Trostration that I thought there
Avas no use trying to get well. A
friend recommended Dr. Miles'
Nervine, and although skeptical
at first, I soon found myself re
coveringand am to-day well."
MRS. D. I. JONES,
, 5800 Broadway, Cleveland, O.
Much sickness is of nervous
origin. It's the nerves that
make the heart force the blood
through the veins, the lungs
take in oxygen, the stomach di
gest food, the liver secrete bile
and the kidneys filter the blood.
If any of these organs are weak,
it is the fault of the nerves
through which they get their
strength. Dr. Miles' Nervine is
a specific for the nerves. It
soothes the irritation and assists
in the generation of nerve force.
Therefore jou can hardly miss
it if you take Dr. Miles' Nervine
when sick. Get a bottle from
your druggist. Take it all ac
cording to directions, and if it
does not benefit he will return
