THE FALL DRAWS NEAR
The fall brings the same troubles
every year. It begins with poor ap
petite, constipation, weakness and
fatigue. Io you know the old ad
ae: "An mince of prevention costs
much less than a pound of cure?"
Take Triner's Hitter Wine, and this
reliable remedy will help you over
the change of season. It restores ap
petite, removes the constipation, dis
sipates feeling of uneasiness and re
establishes the good poise of your
mind. Rheumatism of muscles and
joints and neuralgia belong also to
the autumnal diseases. Try Triner's
Liniment and you will see that this
remedy is a safe relief of all such
pains. At this time of the year also
appear colds in the head and chest,
coughs, bronchitis, etc. Don't delay
and use Triner's Cough Sedative. For
throat inflamations the best prepara
tion is Triner's Antiputrin. Your
druggist or dealer in medicines now
has all these remedies in stock.
