Food and Health.
That food has much to do with
our health is a well known fact,
but We must keep in mind that the
same food acts dill'erently on dif
ferent people. Some food is a
delicacy to one person, while it is
repulsive to the other. A sound
minded man will naturally refuse
lo eat food which does not agree
with him and will, even in the
slightest discomfort after meals,
employ Triner's American Elixir
of Milter Wine to regulate the di
gestion. This remedy has a very
energetic efTeot on the digestive
organs and is a valuable remedy
in troubles of the stomach and of
the intestines, as also in
nervousness and weakness, in
pains and colics, in sudden at
tacks of rheumatism and
neuralgia. II contains no in
jurious ingredients, consisting
only of bitter herbs and red wine.

of the dipso family were not in danger
therefrom. The application of the men
for release was denied by Judge Ris
