Therefore. tlhe best advertisement oi a really
good medicine is the, reputation it has gained in
places where itis being sold. No other remedy
ever discovered has groan so rapidly in public
ftivor as that trie medicinal tonic called Browns'
Iron Bitters. In localities where its extraordi
nary merits have become fully known and real
ized by those who have been in ill health, the
sale is unprecedented. One druggist in our city
reports the sale of 23T bottles in one week. It
is, indeed, a wonderful, health-giving, life-saving
preparation. It is soothing and refreshing in its
effect, and strengthens ever part of the body,
and creates healthy appetite and digestion, even
when the system is almost destroyed by the
many- hurtful cathartics so commonly used.

The captain and Bill Tyke both fell to

her, and as she tried to rush between T
