In the composition of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters the High
standard of purity now required under the pure food and drug
act of June 30, 1906, has always been maintained. In fact, its
wonderful success has been due, first, to its absolute purity and
sscond, to its ability to cure ailments of the Stomach, Liver and
Bowels. If your stomach is weak and your appetite poor you
need trie Bitters at once, for it will make a weak stomach strong
without fail. Thus it cures Dyspepsia, Indigestion, CostivenesF,
Poor Appetite, Belching, Bloating. Heartburn, Headache, Colds
Female Ills, or Malaria., Fever and Ague. Be persuaded this

troubles and find it invaluable.

They Can Stop Their Hair Falling Out
Ladies who have thin hair and whose
hair is falling out, can prevent the hair
falling out, and thicken the growth,
with Xt wbro's Herpicide. Besides. Her
picide is one of the most agreeable
hair dressings there is. Herpicide kills
the dandruff germ that ents the hair
off at the root. After the germ is de
stroyed, the root will shoot up and the
hair grow long as ever. Even a sam
ple will convince any lady that New

toilet requisite. It contains no oil or
grease: it will not stain or dye. Sold
by leading druggists. Send 10 cents in

Although an outside printing con
cern promised to print all of our post
age stamps cheaper than the govern
ment can do the work itself the con
tract was again awarded to the bureau
of engraving and printing. It is
claimed that the small saving in money
would be more than offset by the loss
on the machinery in the latter plant
even if sold to the outsider at market
value. In medicine, as well, cheapness
is not to be considered over merit, and
for that reason Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters should be the first choice of
every one suffering from poor appetite,
headache, vomiting, belching, heart
burn, dyspepsia, indigestion, costive
ness, colds or malaria. For over S3
years it has given complete satisfac
tion. Try a bottle. It has been ap
proved by the pure drug commission
