beginning to feel its Influence and ef

This is plainly illustrated in the ex

farming, marketing her products in
Rock Island for years.
"Many changes have come in my
day and gradually I have realized the
etraln, brought by the demands of our
modern ways of living. And I began
to feel the requirement of a tonic of I
some kind to build up - my vitality.
Sleep quietly I could not and the
slightest sound wakened me when
morning came. I was more tired than
on retiring my nerves were always
at high tension, my appetite was very
poor, food distressed me, and I was
in a badly run down condition. Differ
ent doctors prescribed for stomach
and liver trouble and I tried several
advertised remedies but without re
sult. I have used one bottle of Plant
Juice which has done more for me
than all the rest and I am greatly
improved. My stomach does not distress-
me. I sleep and eat well and my
rest does me good. I find Plant Juice
has done more for me in so short a
time than any tonic I have ever used.
