The stomach, from a variety of causes such as
Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Nervous Debility, etc. is
very apt to have its functions deranged. The
Liver, sympathizing as closely as it does with the
Stomach, then becomes affected, the result of
which is the patient suffers from several or more
of the following diseases :
Constipation, Flatulence, Inward Piles, Fulness

Yellowness of the Skin and Eyes, Pain in the
Side, Back, Chest, Limbs etc. Sudden Flushes
of Heat, Burning in the Flesh, Con
stant Imaginings of Evil, and
Great Depression of Spirits.
The sufferer from these diseases should exercise
the greatest caution in the selection of a remedy
for his case, purchasing only that which he is as
sured from his investigations and inquiries, pos

from injurious ingredients, and has established

"The simplicity and accuracy of its mechanism
prevent its dropping stitches, to which many oth

brought the "chain stitch" into disrepute. One
cannot but admire the beauty and accuracy of its
movements, and the entire absence of all
when running at the rate of 2000 stitches

a great recommendation to it. Another merit is
the good workmanship. The parts
