THE OBJECT of all medicine Is either to pre
vent disease, or to assist Naturo In restoring
the various organs f the body to a healthful
action, and that medicine H certainly tho best
which will norform thoso offices thoroughly,
yet mildly, and without endangering the vital
forces of the system, by whoso normtl condi
tion alono health nnd Mreugth can be preserved.
tlost of tho nittors that have heretofore boen
brought Into popular favor, have only sorved
tho purpose of temporarily stimulating or ox
cltlnc the dfgans into a condition resembling
healthful action, without any remedial clTeol,
and genorally followed by a return of tho dis
ease, or a prostration of a nervous energy mnro
disastrous than though Naturo had been loftlo
take Its own course.
Dr. Orooley's Bitters are a preparation of the
nutritive properties of the grain of the fields In
combination with tho active principle of many
simple alteratives and bitter tonics, and It Is a
pleasure to the proprietors tuatato thatlts use
fnlposit Is being generally acknowledged bythe
I irgcly-lncre iMng consumption In thoso Fee
tlciiH where It U best known, and by tho testi
mony of many eminent physicians, who navo
uot only mado trial of It, but continual- pre
scribe the Bitters In those c.isea for which It is
AOEI) 1'hOl'IaK, AND ALL V7KAKLY
Ctr.sumpllvo patients, and nl'iors, wbtwe ocn.
stltutlons have become imputed by time, t ph
fcoM?d by dlsc.iso, and In v.'l ni tlio process of
illfistiiiu (luniiio! raplice the f.it ai.dtloMicsnf
the hi dy as fist ia they w.wto, will ilnd thf no
nitlcrs at onoo nourlifhlng and strengthening,
and happily adapted for their use. Tln .riMt
advautago the Bitter peaces over ord n-iry
btlmulauts usually proecnbel Jn troatli , lung
complaints and kindred dise.i03, is the faul that
thoy comblno many safe ar.rl certain healing
properties In connection with the boat i uown
Will derive great boneQt from tt. No unpleas
ant effect will ev:r rosult from'taklng the Hit
ters, if the directions are followed. Kcr'thouo
who suffer from nervous dobillty, languor, wint
of rest, exhaustlsn, and in all cases of weak
ness, tho Bitters are mt equalled.
As an agreeable stomachic, It Is much ad
mired; It sharpens tl.o appetite, hrUhiciHih)
Intellect, and Infuses new lilo an I via r. Ko
ono who uses these Bitters can ho tubject to an
attack of FEVER and AUUK, or Dl.VRIIIItL'A.
Of all tho Ills that allllct remand wnmon, few
are so agonUIng as Dyspepsia. It i,ia tot
combiniillpit of many diseases. Thanks to
science and Da. GubiLKV, a tptvinc 1 .ts now
boen obtained., Okeei.i.v'.s Uocheom Bittkiis
take straight hold of the disease, and lo.m a
euro. Thoir.ands f woll-attcstad cuse-t ol
euros of Dyspepbla,Iudigislh)n,andrcer and
Ague, oven ot tho rao'it desperate ki'id, aro In
flie possession of tho pioprletora.
Not a few people, o ory whore, tonipla'u of
Weakness or Debility. TLIa Is the gentle hint
of nature for alllllo help in tho way of Invlg.
oration. The hint shuuld not bo neglected.
"A stiloh In tlmo saves nlno." Oct a supjily of
(juef.lev'r BoniDoN BiT-raits, take thcra legular-
ly, and our word for It you w 111 feel hotter, live
longer, be stronger, and think and act with very
much mnro 'itlsfactlon. Tho Bitters aro a
tonio, and of a naturo noer before attained In
any rocdlclno. It will nako tho weak strong,
the desponding hopeful, tho siok well. For any
complaint of ihe Stomach, Liver, or Bowels,
there Is nothing com; arablo with thl.smci'lnlro,
In America, the LHoris ihootslahusudut all
tho organs In the body. It Is made the saddle
of all other org ins. As a consequence, It is
often out of order, aud not uufrequently nearly
Inoperative. Thla need not bo; on the con
trary, it Is quite urneooscary. A littlo common
sense, and a sufficiency of Gkbi.kv'j BocasoK
Bitteks, will koep tho Liver right, and make
man a man, and woman, now ralsefable, qu te
happy. Tho Bitters regulato and sticutilhen
tho Liver, no less than purify It.
Tho Inorease of Nervous Disoidora, at tho
present day, Is one of the moat al.ti niin? Indi
cations of the ago, or rathor, would he, wore
it not that a most admirable euro had been
found. Thero Is not a phase of nervoun dis
ease, whatever it may bo, that thco Hrttors
will not aot upon favorably, and in the most
efllolent manner. All who aro unfortunately
afflicted with complaints of this nature, or with
Indigestion, or any diseases of the EJlnmanh,
should not tall to make um) of Gkieiat's Uouu
Chills and Fever. In many portions of the
United States, this terrible dlKeuxo uclzes its vie
tlms as naturally as water seeks IU level. The
system, In a particular condition, Invites it.
Tho right modlolno to prevevt and euro this
malady, wo unhesitatingly nay, Is (iutni.ET'a
Botm&ON Bitteus. It breaks up the fever,
drives It from tho syslom, and w ill koep it at
bay, if taken In accordance with directions on
the bottle. Tho Bitters purjty and enrich the
blood, and this In ruturn strengthens tho con
stitution. As an agreeable tonic, theso Ulttors
have no equal.
Greeley's Bourbon Bitters are meotlng a Bale
unparallelod inUe history of popular medi
cines. In a'l diseases of the Stomach and
Bowels they are a sovorolgn ouio. Tho worst
cases of Dyspepsia aud Indigestion yield to the
rcmarknblo potency of tho lllllors, w Inch Is ss
agreeable to the taste as it Is spoody and un.
railing In Its good effects.
