A CONTINUAL STRAIN.
Many moo and women are constantly
subjec.ed to what they commonly term]
"a continual strain" booause of tome!
iluanoial or family trouble. It wears
and distresses them both mentally and
I physically, affecting their nerves bad
ly and bringing on liver and kidney
ailments, wi-h the attendant evils of
coustb at'on, lo-s of upto'ito, sleepless
noss, low vit.illtv and despondency
They oennot, ss a |uU?, get rid of this
"continual strain,'' but they oan rome
dy its health destroying effects by tuk
ing frequon'. doses of Green's August I
Flower. It tones up the liver, stimu-]
lates iiio kidneys, insures healthy bod
ily funo.ions, gives vlua and spirit to
ono's whole being, and evontually dis
pels the physical or mental distress
