A Starved Stomach.
Many are the causes, when the
stomach either refuses to take any
food or to digest it. It may bo from
overwork, both physical and men
tal, grave diseases, weakness, excite
ment, worry or excesses. The patient
quickly loses strength and energy
a-.) J becomes tired and careless. In
such cases we can conscientiously
recommend Triner's American Elixir
of Bitter Wine, because it gives satis
faction. It greatly stimulates the
exhausted and starved stomach to
normal activity, makes It to accept
any food and to do its share In the
digestion and assimilation of it. It
strengthens the Intestines to make
them able to finish the digestive
process and to make new blood,
which carries nourishment to every
part of the body. At any time when
the stomach will refuse to work, as
It should, use Triner's American
Elixir of Bitter Wine. At drug
stores. Jos. Trlner. 616-622, Ro.
