Electric Bitters is a medicine suited for every season, but perhaps more generally needed in the spring, when the languid, exhausted feeling prevails, when the liver is torpid and sluggish and the need of a tonic and alterative is felt. A prompt use of this medicine has often averted long and perhaps fatal bilious fevers. No medicine will act more surely in counteracting and freeing the system from the malarial poison. Headache, indigestion, constipation, dizziness, yield to Electric Bitters. Only 60o a bottle at L, A. Sheetz 1 drug store. 1 MARVELOUS BESULTS, From a letter written by Rev, J.
