Heart Strength, or Heart Weakness, means Korre
Btrength. or Nerve Weakness -nothing more. Pos
itively, not one weak heart in a hundred is. In it
self, actually diseased. It is almost always a
hidden tiny little nerve that really is all at fault.
This obscure nerve the Cardiac, or Heart Nerve
simply needs, and must have, more power, more
stability, more controlling, more governing
strength. Without that the Heaft must continue
to fail, and the stomach and -kidneys also have
these sama controlling nerves.
This clearly explains why, as a medicine. Dr.
Shoop's Restorative has in the past done so much
for weak and ailing Hearts. Dr. Shoop first sought
the cause of all this painful, palpitating, suffocat

popular prescription is alone directed to these
weak and wasting nerve centers. It builds;
