The beginning of disease Is a slight debility or disorder of some of the vital organs, the stomach, the liver or the bowels nsually. There are dyspeptic symptoms, tbe liver is troublesome, tbe skin grows tawney and unhealthy looking;, there are pains in the right side or through the right shoulder blade. The climax Is of ten an utter prostration of the physical energies, perbapj a fatal issue. But U tbe difficulty Is met In time with Hostet- tor's Stomach BIt'ors. which is always effective as a remedy, and It should be resorted to at an early stage, there will be no reason to apprehend those Injurlousl subsequent effects upon tbe system often entailed by entirely cured diseases. Far better U it, also, to employ this safe remedial agent in fever and ague, and other malarial complaints than quinine and other potent drngt, which, even when they do prove ef notual tor a time, rain the stomach a»d Impair the general health.
