A Problem Long Since Solved.?
How to romody these prolific causes of disease,
an impoverished circulation and an impaired
digestion, was a problem the solution of which
had often bellied medical skill, but which wassolved
over a quarter ot a century ago by the
introduction ot' Hostettor's Stomach Bitters to
public and professional notice. Since that time,
which may woll be said to have initiated a new
epoch in the history of medicine, the remedy
and preventive referred to hsB obtained a foothold
in the confidence of the American people
that each succeeding year has only served to
strengthen. It is recognizod throughout the
Union as a tonic of the first ord?r, a remedy for
and sure moans of preventing fovcr and agU8,
and disorders of the stomach and bowels; as a
reliablo means of reformiug a disordered state
of the liver, and of counteracting a tendency to
rheumatism.gout, urinary and uterine disorders.

ly. Ayer's Hair Vioor will restore faded or
gray, light and red hair to a rich brown or deep
black, as may be desired. It softens and cleanses
the scalp, giving it a healthy action, and removes
and cures dandrutF and humors. By its
use falling hair i3 cheeked, and a new growth
will be produced in all c-.se3 whero Ihe follicles
are not destroyed or glands decayed. It3 effects
aio beautifully shown on brashy, weak or sickly
hhir, to which a few applications will produce
the glos3 and freshness of youth. Harmless and
sure in its operation, it is incomparable as a
dressing, and is especially valued for the soft
lustre and richness of tone it imparts. It contains
neithor oil nor dye, and will not soil or
color white cambric: yet it lasts lonpr on tho hair
and keeps it fresh and vigorous. E. S. Loadboater
