_EMLNIMNIT men assert:that Mishler's Herb
Bitters Is the great household remedy of the
age for Dyspepsia, Indigestion, Constipation,
General Debility, Flatulency, Loss of Appe
tite, Sick Headache, Cholera :kit:trims, Cramps
in the Bowels. It was never known to fail
when taken thoroughly, according lo the di
rectioias which accompany each bottle. Cler
gymen, physicians, prolehsional gentlemen in
all stations of life—and - the most eminent
men in public positions--all who have ever
need or seen it need, join in the most un
bounded praise of its merits. Our best phy
sicians are constantly urging us to tell them
the formula from which it is made, saying its
effects are wonderful ; its success is beyond
all precedent, and its cures in even the most
aggravated cases are an certain as sunrise. It
Will stop distress after eating in a moment's
time; sweeten a sour stomach as soon as
taken ; relieve pains or cramps in the stomach
or bowels instantaneously: and znables the ,
dyspeptic sufferer, who has lived on Graham
bread and the plainest" diet, to eat a hearty
meal without fear of any trouble from it. For
sale by all respectable druggists.
Tun Overernc.—The trials and suffer
ings of the dyspeptic can only berealized by
those so unfortunate as to be afflicted by this
disease,- And yet how many of them suffer,
and continue to suffer ? Why they do this
so patiently it is impossible to tell. It may
be nom ignorance of any certain remedy, or,
It may be from prejudice menet the use of a
pint medicine. llooBanffls German Bitters
