TRY IT YOURSELF. "It is of no use to argu the question, Philip, I am neither stubborn noropinionated, I have simply had a lesson that will last a lifetime." "Look here Jack! you are like some old bachelor that has been jilted by one woman and goes about declaring all women are false." "Not at all! my brother Charley died of Bright's disease, brought on by using one of these so called 'blood purifiers' - the kind you see attractively advertised in every nook and corner. It contains iodide of potasiium, a drug useful in extreme cases when cautiously given undtr a doctor't supervisión , but deathdealing to all who take it in quantity. ïiyour brother bad died under such circumstances, you would hate patent medicines as I do." "I do dislike the name of that miscalled 'blood purifier," for I have heard a first class physician say it is the cause of half the cases of Bright's disease in the country, and it is strange the propritors have not been prosecuted for selling it. But I was recommending Vinegar Bitters and that does not contain any mineral, narcotic or other hurtful drug." "Oh, nobody supposes that old woman's remedy will hurt anybody; the question is will it cure anything? I'd as soon think of taking some of my grandmother's herb tea." ''You would be better off, Jack, if you had some of that tea to tone up your system now, instead of taking a glass of branáy to make you s eep one night and perhaps a boltle of beer the next." "Is this a temperance lecture, Phil?" "No, it is a Vinegar Bitters lecture. I've taken the medicine more or less for fifteen years, and look the world over, you will not find a hcaithier man than I am." " AViw.t is all this nonsense about old style and new style Vinegar Bitters; are they different. ''Yes, the old style looks like coffee with milk in, the new style like coffee without milk. The man who made the old style for twenty years - a practical chemist - made a milder, pleasanter preparation, adding to it here, and taking from it there, until he produced, my wife says, the finest medicine ever made. It cured her of constipation, and it cures the children of hives and' all the little nilinenti they ever have. If my wife thinks they have worms, she doBes them with old 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 style Vinegar Bitters - men, I think, prefer old style usually - try it, and you will then be like an old bachelor, who, after railing against women for years, falls in love with a goed woman at last. You will say there are good and bad patent medicines, but Yinegar Bitters is the best of the lot." "AU right, Pbil, to please you, 111 try it and report results." Only Temperance Bitters Known. A Beautiful Book Fkee. ADDRESS, R. H. McDONALD DRUG CO., 532 Washington St., Xew York.
