The dual operation of digestion and assimilation is the grand prerequisite of vigor. To insure tho conversion of food into rich nutritious blood, it is only necessary to use with persistence and systematically Uostetter's Stomach Bitters. The fountain head of supply in tho animal economy is the stomach To regulate, to invigorate that organ, and thus facilitate ita digestive and assimilative processes, should be the chief aim of those troubled with a deficit of stamina. Nervousness, insomnia, feeble appetite -these are usually traceable to impaired digestion. Overcome this and you of necessity dismiss ita multifarious, preplexing and harassing symptoms. The emaciated can never hope to gain flesh ao long aa as similation ia imperfect. The Bitters surmounts the only obstacle to an increase not only of vigor, but of bodily substance. Conquer also with the Bitters malaria, kidney and liver complaint,, constipation and rheumatic trouble.
