With best Wishes for the Hkrai.ii,
Indigestion is often taken for con
sumption. The word consumption
means wasting away, and dyspeptics
often waste away, as badly as consump
tives. The reason people waste is be
cause either thev don't get enough to eat
orthev don't dig'est what they do eat. If
the latter is your trouble, take Shaker
Digestive Cordial. This will help you
to digest vour food and stop your loss of
tlcsh. Shaker Digestive Cordial is made
from herbs, barks and the juices of fruit,
bv the well-known Shakers at Mount
Lebanon. It possesses great tonic and di
gestive powers. Shaker Digestive Cor
dial has cured many supposed consump
tives (who were really dyspeptics), by
simply helping their stomachs to digest
their food, thus giving them nourish
ment and new strength. Sold by drug
gists. Trial bottles Id cents.

SOMETHING TO KNOW.
It may be worth something to know
that the very best medicine for restor
ing the tired out nervous system to a
healthy vigor is Klectric Bitters. This
medicine is purely vegetable, acts by
giving tone to the nerve centres in the
stomach, gently stimulates the Liver
and Kidneys, and aids these organs in
throwing oft impurities in the blood.
Klectric Bitters improves the appetite,
aids digestion, and is pronounced by
those who have tried it as the very best
blood purifier and nerve tonic. Try it.
Sold for 50 cents or $1 per bottle at Wol
