If you are sick and out-of-sorts, it is in your
power to make yourself healihy, strong, and
There is not the slichtest reason why you
should go through life feeling sickly, miserable,
languid, and melancholic. To be well and
strong, means happiness and true joy.
If you are sleepless, rheumatic, neuralgic,
dyspeptic, or have the shadows of disease
hovering over you; if you are not as bright,
energetic, and strong as you were some weeks
ago, the use of Paine's Celery Compound will
tone up and fortify your whole system, cleanse
the blood, correct digestion, sharpen the
appetite, and conduce to restful sleep. Thous

present good health to the use of Paine's
Celery Compound.. Mr. Ym. S. Gibson, of
Pleasur'eville, Ky., who, through sickness and
suffering, was brought near the dark grave,
writes as follows, regarding his marvelous
" I have been broken down in health and
strength, nervous system shattered, kidneys
out of order, had nervous and trembling spells
off and on for the last ten years. I have taken
three bottles of your Paine's Celery Compound
and all of the above-mentioned troubles have
left me, and I can now do a good day's work.
I go about my business all day long and it
don't worry me, and I now feel better than I
have in ten years. I have a good appetite,
and can eat and get around on foot as active
as when I was a boy. My age is 6$ years."
