were nearly Revered from the trnnk.
The foot and hand were cut com

A Remedy that has made its Mark.
Success is the meed of excellence.
The truth of this has never been more
forcibly exemplified than by the
triumphant career of Hostetter's Stom
ach Hitters. No sooner did the people
discover the genuine merits of that su
preme invigorant and corrective than
they hastened to stamp It with the seal
of popularity. The press and medical
profession speedily followed in the
wake of the public, and emphatically
endorsed it. Thus from the very out
set the success of the Hitters as a reme
dy and preventive was an established
fact, and a degree of popularity which
it often takes proprietary medicines
years to attain, was achieved almost at
a stride by the then new preparation.
Since that time every successive year
has witnessed fresh accessions to the
favor with which the Hitters wore early
regarded, andthearcaof its popularity
is 110 longer confined to the United
States, but includes the Hritish Pro
vince in North America and tho West
Indies, South America, Mexico, por
tions of Europe and Australia. That it
is not only a remedy for dyspepsia,
constipation, biliousness, urinary and
uterine complaints, nervousness and
debility, but also a preventive of those
maladies to which air and water, im
pregnated with miasma, give birth, has
been nowhere so strongly evidenced as
in those regions where climatic condi
tions unfavorable to health exist, and
where the Hitters have leen long and
constantly tested. To call this superb
cordial a remedy that has made its
mark, cannot, we think, be regarded as
boasting, since there is probably no
proprietary remedy more widely
known, universally respected and em
phatically endorsed than these Hitters.
