Spring Ailments. There is an aching and tired feeling; the liver bowels and kidneys become sluggish and inactive, the digestion impaired, with little or no appetite, no ambition for anything, and a feeling that the whole body and mind need toning up.

Herbine will remove it, secure to the secretions a right exit, and by its tonic effect, fully restore the wasted tissues and give strength in place of weakness. 50c at R. Haas, Agent.

Horrible Death.

Dr. W. H. Low, an aged citizen of Cherry Ridge neighborhood, met a horrible death last Thursday at this own hands.

I used a sample bottle of Herbine, found it helped me. Then bought two bottles, which completely cured me. I feel grateful to you for furnishing such a splendid medicine, and can honestly recommend it to those suffering from malaria, as it will surely cur them.” Herbine, 50c bottle at R. Haas, Agent.

FOR THOSE WHO LIVE ON FARMS. Dr. Bergin, Pana, Ills., writes, “I have used Ballard’s Snow Liniment; always recommend it to my friends, as I am confident there is no better made. It is a dandy for burns.” Those who live on farms are especially liable to many accidental cuts, burns, and bruises, which heal rapidly when Ballard’s Snow Liniment is applied.
