Pos itively, not one weak heart in a hundred is, in it self. actually diseased. It is almost always a hidden tiny little nerve that really is all at fault. This obscure nerve—the Cardiac, or Heart Nerve —simply needs, and must have, more power, more stability, more controlling, more governing strength. Without that the Heart must continue to fail, and the stomach and kidneys also have these same controlling nerves. This clearly explains why, as a medicine, Dr. Shoop’s Restorative has in the past done so much for weak and ailing Hearts. Dr. Shoop first sought the cause of all this painful, palpitating, suffocat ing heart distress. Dr. Shoop’s Restorative—this popular prescription—is alone directed to these weak and wasting nerve centers. It builds; it strengthens: it offers real, genuine heart help. If you would have strong Hearts, strong di gestion, strengthen these nerves re-establish them as needed, with Dr. Shoop’s Re torative IT quic l 7 A-lrt/J I fog Shoop’s Cough Cure.

If you lose sleep, your system is robbed of the strength sleep should give. Continued loss of sleep multiplies this loss until you become a phys ical wreck. Dr. Miles’ Nervine cpiiets the irri tated nerves and brings refreshing, invigorating sleep. Nervine contains no opiates, and therefor leaves no bad after-effects. “For over two years I suffered un told agonies; my friends thought I was going crazy. 1 could not sleep nor rest at all. I tried different doc tors, but failed to find relief. My head would ache all the time; I was like one drunk; could not concentrate my mind, and was so restless and worried that sleep was out of the question. After taking one bottle of Dr. Miles’ Nervine I felt wonderfully changed. I am now on my third bot tle and am gaining all the time. I can lie down and sleep like a child, and am able to do my work.” MRS. MAY SCOTT, English, Ind.
