A Clever Trick.
It certainly looks like it, but there
is really no trick about it. Anybody

Weak Kidneys, Malaria or nervous
troubles. We mean he can cure him
self right away by -taking Electric
Bitters. This medicine tones up the
whole system, acts as a stimulant to
the Liver and Kidneys, is a blood
purifier and nerve tonic. It cures
constipation, headache. Fainting
spell, sleeplessness and melancholy.
It is purely vegetable, a mild laxative
and restores the s ystem to its natural
vigor. Try Electric Bitters and be
convinced that they are a miracle
worker. Every bottle guaranteed.
