Protect the Srstea frM Malaria.
It is. possible to do this even In regions of court
try where' miasma is most rife, and where the
periodic feTerg which it causes assume their most
formidable ' types. The ' Immense popularity of
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is very largely attribu
table to the fact of Its efficacy as a remedy for
chills and fever, bullous remittents, and as a pre-.
venuve ol the various rorma of malarial disease.
In those portions of the Test and South where
complaints of this nature prerail, and in the
Tropics, It is particularly esteemed for the pro
tective Influence which tt exerts; and It has been
very widely adopted as a substitute for the danger-
ooa and comparatively ineffectlTe alkaloid, sul
phate of quinine. Physicians have not been
among the last to concede its merits, and the em
phatic professional Indorsements .which It has
received have added to the reputation it has ob
tained at home and abroad.
OHeThiagoB Which the Doctors all Agree.
Doctors disagree about a great many things but
they are all of one mind regarding God Liver Oil,
as the only thing to prescribe when the enfeebled
system refuses to absorb and assimilate any other
kind of nourishment, whatever, may be the cause
of the patient's lack of vital force. Whether it is
consumption, scrofula, or the general debility so
often following malarial fever; this peculiar form
of food is the only known specific that rarely fails
to invigorate the blood and solid tissues of the
body, and speedily averts the dreaded process of
decay. : Yet people turn from this benlnclent
means of preserving lite, because of its repulsive
taste. Thousands will rejoice to know that all its
valuable qualities are not only preserved but mul
tiplied. In the palatable mixture of Scott's Emul
