Let not Prejudice l's ti ri? Your Kcason.
It in a fact that, in tho minds of many
persons, a prejudice exists against what
aro called patent modiciues; hut why
should this prevent you resorting to an
article that has Buch an array of testimo?
ny to support it as HOSTETTEITS STOM?
ACH BITTERS? Thysicians prescribe it;
why should you discard it? Judges, usu?
ally considered men of talent, have used
and do uso it in their families; why should
you reject il? Let not yonr prejudice
usurp your reason to tho everlasting inju?
ry of your health. If you aro sick, and
reti?ir? a medicine, try these Bitters.
When the bodily energies are worn out
by anxiety and need a stimulant, thia is
tho best that can be takon. It is tempered
and modified by hygienic herbs and roots,
which prevent it from fevering tho blood;
and hence it does not produce amere tem?
porary excitement, to DO followed by inju?
rious roaction, bnt communicates a perma?
nent potency to tho entire vital organiza?
tion. Somo of its liberal constituents are
slightly soporific, so that in ? r.sej where
sleeplessness is ono of tho accompani?
ments of nervous disease, a doso of it
taken towards bed-time will tend to pro
dnco quiet and refreshing slumber. For
palpitation of heart, tremors, hysterics,
fainting fits, general restlessness and tho
causeless fears and distressing fancies to
which ladies aro especially subject, under
certain morbid conditions of mind and
body peculiar to their sex, the Hitters will
be found tho most agroeable and certain
of all counter-irritants.
Tho constitutionally nervous may readi?
ly koop their infirmity in constant check
hy the daily use of this healthful vegeta?
ble tonic; and those who have "shattered
their nerves," as thc phraso is, either by
imprudent indulgence or undue physical
or intellectual labor, will find in thia vital?
izing elixir a prompt restorative.
