Whcn all these thiugs are taken into considuration, the surprise is not that here is so mucb sickucss, but that there s so mucli licslth. The evil is not avoided y driuking liimors, miuaral waters, or any otlier coiiciHtions, for they too frequently are ofteu more injurious than ordinary water. The only way to avoid the evil effects is by keeping the health unimpaired. All have. observed that the evil effects of poisonous water are quicklj nvmifest in some cass, and muoh less in otliers. This is owing to the tact that one person ig in good bealtb wbile the otber is not. A man, woraan or cbild who is vigorous, aud whose body is proporly toned, is tbc one who can tbccasiest avoid tiie evils tibov named. A gentle stimulant to the digestivo oifians and facultieë h sirengtli-inipartin ineparation, a nervebuilding conipound, is what the public reqnire, is what tlie people will have. This is precisely what Hoptonic is, and tlie grtmX fuvor with which it has been and is being received clearly shows its value.
