The people of Michigan can no lonper afford to pay tribute to Eastern Otates by plucing their Life Insurance with Eastern Companies, who by their charters are compelled to loan tïieir monoy in their own otates, thus becoming a heavy drain on the resources of the State, when we have so reliable and well managed Life Company as the MICHIGAN MUTUAL.

Walker California TinPfittí lüllcrs are n pnroly Vegetable preparntion, made chiofly from the nativo íierlis Cotlltd on the lower ranges of tlie Sierra Neviula rnountains of California, the medicinal proporties of wbich are oxtrarted therefrom without the use of Alcohol. Tlia question ia almost daily asked, "Wliat is the cause of tlie unparalíeled kuccoks of Vinegak Bitteus?" Our answer is, tliat they remove the cause of dignase, and the patiënt recovers his health. They are the great blood puriflerand a life-giving principie, a perfect Kenovator and Inviporator of the system. Never before in the histoi-y of the world has a medicino been componnded possessing the remarkable qualities of Vineqab Bitters in healing the sick of every disease man is heil to. They are a gentle Purgative as well as a Tonic, relieving Congestión or Inflammation of the Liver and Visceral Organs, in Bilious Diseases. If men will onjoy %ooil health, let them Vixegak Bitteks as a medicine, and avoid the use of alcoholic stimulants Ui every form. No Persoii 'au take Mioso Bitters aecording to directiong, and remain long unwell, provided their bones are not destroyed by mineral poison orothor mouns. and vital orcans wasted beyond repair. Oniteflll TllOnsaild.S pi'odaim Vinegar Bittees the most wonderful liivivrant that ever. sustained the ginking system. Bilious, Bemittent, taté ínterniittent Fevers, which aro so orevajent in the valleys of our great rivers throughout the United States, ospecially f!?ose oí the Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee, Cumberland, Arkansas, Eed, Colorado, Brazos, Eio Grande, Pearl, Alabama, Mobile, Savannah, Itoanoke" James, and many others, with thcir vast tribtttaries, throughout our entire country during the Summer and Autumn, and remarkably so during seasons of umisual hesit and dryness, nre invariably aecompanied by extensive derangements of the stomach and liver, and other abdominal visceya. In their treatment, a purgative, exerting a powerful influence upon these various organs. is essentially necessary. Thero is no cathpj'tic for the purpose equal to Dn. J. Walkers Vinegab Bitteks, as they will speedily remove the dark-colored viscid matter with whicli tho bowels aro loaded, at the same time stimulating tho secretions of the liver, and generally restoring the healthy functions of the digestiva organs. Dyspepsia or indigeslioH, Head aohe,Pain in theShoulders,Gonghs,Tightness of the Chest, Dizziness, Sour Eructations of the Stomach, Bad Taste in the Mouth, Bilious Attav;ks, Palpitation of the Heart, Inflammation of the Lungs, Pain in the región of the Kidneys, and a hundred other painful symiJtoms, are tho oösprings of Dyspepsia. One bottle will prove a better guarantee of its merits than a lengthy advertisement. Scrofula, or King's Evil, White Swellings, Ulcers, Erysipelas, Swelled Neck, Goitre, Scrofulous Inflammations, Indolent Inflammations, Mercurial Affections, Old Sores, Eruptions of the Skin, Sore Eyes, etc, etc. In these, as in all other constitutional Diseases, Waiker's VrNEGAB Bittebs have shown their great curativo powers in the most obstinate and intractable cases. For Inflanmiatory and Chronic Klieumatisni, Gout, Bilious, Eemittent and Intermittent Fevers, Diseases of the Blood, Liver, Kidneys, and Bladder, these Bitters have no equal. Such Diiseases are caused by Vitiated Blood. Mechanical Diseases.- Persons engaged in Paints and Minerals, such as Plumbers, Type-setters, Gold-beaters, and Miners, as they advance in life, are subject to paralysis of the Bowels. To pnard against this, take a dose of alulhx Vinkgae Bittees occasionally. Tor Sliill Diseases, Eruptions, Tetter, Salt Kheum, Blotches, Spots, Pimples, Pustules, Boils, Carbuncles, Eingworms, Scald Head, Sore Eyes, Erysipelas, Itch, Scurfs, Discolorations of the Skin, Huniors and Diseases of the Skin of whatevername or nature, are literally dug up and carried out of the system in a short time by the use of these Bitters. Pin, Tape, and olher Worms, lurking in thesystem of so many thousands, aro effectually destroyed and removed. No system of medicine, no vermifuges, no anthelminitics, will free the system from worms like these Bitters. For Female Coniplaints, in young or old, married or single, at the dawn of womanhood or the tui'n of life, these Tonic Bitters display so decided an influence that improvement is soon perceptible. Jauildice. - In all cases of jaundice, rest assured that your liver is not doiug its work. The only sensible treatment is to promote the secretion of the bile and favor its removal. For this purpose use Vinegab Bittebs. Cleanse the Vitiated Blood whenever you find its inipurities bursting through the skin in Pimples, Eruptions, or Sores; cleanse it when you tind it obstructed aad sluggish in the veins; cleanse it when it is foul ; your feelings will teil you when. Keep the blood pure, and the health of the system will follow. lt. II. ncDOJVALD & CO., Druggists and General Agenta, San Francisco, Califor uia, and cor. Washinuton and Charltou Sts-, New York.
