The first step toward poor health is a weak stomach. From this arises all such
ills as Heartburn. Bloating. Vomiting, Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Costiveness, Head
ache .Biliousness and Malarial Disorders. Therefore be wise in time and get a
bottle of Hcstetter's Stomach Bitters. A few doses at the first sign of stomach
weakness will save much suffering later on. Thousands know this to be true. We

! holds good. I had been troubled by
; kidney disorders for some time.
'There was an acute pain across the
small of my back which made it hard
i for me to bend or do any lifting. I
I had headaches and dizzy spells. A
member of my family had been cur
ed of an attack of kidney complaint
by Doan's Kidney Pills so I decided
to try them. After the first few
doses 1 got relief and soon I was free
from the trouble."
