The Ruin of Nations.
History teaches us that the ruin
of the greatest nations was caused
by perverted appetite, by over
indulgence. The prosperity reach
ed such a stage that, the people re
fused to eat, ordinary, strength
ening food, but. were seeking
delicacies all over the world. They
overate, became lazy, fat and un
lit for work. Then came the end.
This should be a warning to all of
us." We can see, in this country,
how people, as soon as they reach
a certain stage of prosperity, try
to ruin their digestion. We
should eat good, nutritious food
and never neglect the slightest in
disposition, knowing that Triner's
American Elixir of Hitter Wine
will, in all such cases, give quick
relief and new strength. It is a
very good remedy in diseases of
the stomach, the liver and the in
testines. It will clean out the
body and keep it clean. At drug
