"Not at all! my brother Charley died o Bright's disease, brought on by using one o these so called 'blood purifiers' - the kinc you see attractively advertised in every nook and corner. It contains iodide of potassium a druguseful in extreme cases when cautiously given undtr a doctor's supervisión, but death dealing to all who lake it in quantity. {your brother had died under such circumstances you would hate patent medicines as I do." "I do dislike the name of that mis callet 'blood purifier," for I have heard a first clas physician say it is the cause of half the case of Bright's disease in the country, and it i strange ihe propriitors have not been prose cuted for selling it. But I was recommending Vinegar Bitters and that doei not contain an' mineral, narcotic or other hurtful drug."

It cured her of constiparon, and i cures the children of hives and all the little ailment1! they ever have. If my wife thinks they have worms, he doses them with ok style. We always have both kinds in the house, and together, they keep the doctor away." "And you insist that the proof of the pudding-" "Is in the eating - precisely. Jack, get a bottle of the old slyle Vinegar Bitters - men, I think, prefer old style usually - try it, and you will then be like an old bachelor, who, after railing againu women for years, falls in love with a good woman at last. You will iay there are good and bad patent medicines, but Vinegar Bitters is the best of the lot." "All right, Pbil, to please you, I'll try it ind report resuUs." Onlj' Teniperauce Bitters Known.
