Part of a Letter.
"Never can I tind suitable words to
express my thanks to you. I was very
weak and feeble and was unable to
find a remedy t'.iat would make me
strong and stout again. Triner's
American Elixir of Ritter 'Wine was
the only remedy which helped me. It
Is certainly very good; itgivesappe-
tite and builds up the whole body.
Wherever we can speak a good word
for it wc will do so." This is a part
of a letter written to the manufac
turer by Sister M. Donata of Drus-
sllla. O. It shows again that Triner's
American Elixir of Ritter Wine is a
perfectly reliable remedy In all casts
where bodily strength is required. La
dies, pale and sickly, can lind nothing
better; it is indicated in all cases of
maladies of the digestive system and
of the blood. Impure or poor blood Is
the only cause of weakness. This
remedy rejuvenates the blood, makes
It rich and strong and in this way
brings new life and new energy to the
body. At drug stores. Jos. Trincr,

th eresults of the investigation are fa
