In Brief, And to tlie Point.
Dyspepsia is dreadful. Disordered
liver is misery. Indigestion is a foe
to good nature.
The human digestive apparatus is
one of the most complicated and won
derful things in existence. It is easily
put out of order.
Greasy food, tough food, sloppy
food, bad cookery, mental worry, late
hours, irregular nabita, and many
other things which ought not to be,
have made the American people a
nation of dyspeptics.
But Green's August Flower has
done a wonderful work in reforming
this, sad business and making the
American people so healthy that they
can enjoy their meals and be happy.
Bemember: No happiness without
health. But Green's August Flower
brings health and happiness to the
dyBpeptic. Ask your druggist for a
bottle. Seventy-five cents.

Catarrh in its destructive force stands next
to and undoubtedly leads on to consumption.
Jt is therefore singular that thoso afflicted
with this fearful disoaso should not make It
tho object of their lives to rid themselves of
it. Deceptive remedies concocted by ignorant
pretenders to medical knowledge have
weakened tho confidence of tho great
majority of sufferers in all advertised rom

misery rather than torture themselves with
