S0111 thing to Know.
It may be worth something to
know that the very best medicine for
restoring the tired out nervous sys
tem to a healthy vigor is Electric
Bitters. This medicine is purely
vegetable, acts by giving tone to the
nerve centres in the stomach, gently
stimulates the Liver and Kidneys,
and aids these organs in throwing ofl
the impurities of the blood. Electric
Bitters improves the appetite, aids
digestion, and is pronounced by
those who have tried it as the very
best blood purifier and nerve tonic.
Try it. Sold for 50c or $1 per bottle
at Hargrave's Drug Store.
