The Strongest Man.
One of the greatest men ot tho
world declared that the strongest man
is he, who can always control him
self, whose will power Is stronger
than his passions. Some men cannot
deny themselves anything. They
known that their habits are injurious
to their health, but will not change
them. They are ruining their som
achs, their nerves, their blood. If
they can be made to stop and to use,
for a short time only, Triner's Ameri
can Elixir of Bitter Wine, their diges
tion will become regular, their blood
pure, their nerves Btrong. Use it in
all Irregularities of the digestion, In
headache, constipation, nervousness,
backache, colic and cramps, as also
in weakness of the body, anemia,
periodical pains. Use it as soon as
your appetite will fail you or you will
notice some discomfort after eating.
