WILLIAMS' PINK PILLS. General Breakdown Caused by Defi cient Blood Quiokly Corrected by This Tonlo Remedy. A feeling of general weakness, poor appetite, loss of breath after the slight est exercise and broken sleep are some of the symptoms of general debility. Ton may think that they-hare no relation to each other and that yon will worry along, hoping all the time to feel better ■oon. This is a mistake, for every one of the symptoms is caused by bad blood, which must be made pure and new before health will be restored again. A tonic treatment is necessary ana for thia purpose there is no better remedy than Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Mr. J. G. Havey, of 95 Willow St., Chelsea, Mass., says: "I was sick for a number of years from general debility and indigestion. I was never free from stomach trouble and my nerves were so shattered that the least excitement on fitted me for any serious work. My sleep was restless on account of terrible pains in the small of my back. These pains would sometimes last for a month or two. My sight grew weak, there seem ing to be a blur constantly before my eyes. I couldn't concentrate my mind on my work, and the attempt to do so completely exhausted me. "I was finally forced to give up a position £ had held for twenty-eight years. After trying several medicines without help, I read of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and gave them a trial. They made me feel so much better and so much stronger that I started in business for myself here in Chelsea. I have never had a return of my former siok ness and cheerfully recommend Dr. Wil liams' Pink Pills as an exoellent nerve and blood tonic."
