Loss of Weight.
A constant loss of weight is al
ways a symptom of a serious sick
ness. The loss of weight Is always
followed by loss of strength and many
other difficulties. The only way to
regain your health, Is to excite a
vigorous appetite and a perfect dlges-
tion of food. In this respect we can
heartily recommend yoa Trlner's
American Elixir of zTuer W ine as a
remedy you can depend upon. It
will not only force the organs of
digestion to resume their normal
work, but will also give them enough
strength to do so without exertion.
Begin with the treatment soon la
order to prevent the sickness to reach
a point where it will resist all treat
ment. When your complexion be
comes pale or yellowish, when your
weight and strength decline, your
appetite is poor, the digestion is im
perfect and you get easily tired, then
there is time to use Trlner's Ameri
can Elixir of Bitter Wine. At drug
