But that spiritless, no ambition feeling
can be easily and quickly altered by
taking what is known by druggists
every where as Dr. Shoop's Restorative.
Within 48 hours after beginning to use
the Restorative, improvement will be
noticed. Of course, full health will not
immediately return. The gain, how
ever, will surely follow. And best of
all, you will realize and feel your
strength and ambition as it Is return
ing. Outside influences depress first
the “inside nerves” then the stomach,
j Heart, and Kidneys will usually fail,
i Strengthen these failing nerves with
Dr. Shoop's Restorative and see now
quickly health will be yours again.
