Weak and Low-Spirited. A Correspondent thus describes his experience: “I can strongly recommend Herbine as a medicine of remarkable efficacy for indigestion, loss of appetite, sour taste in the mouth, palpitation, headache, drowsiness after meals with distressing mental depressions and low spirits.

All who may attend this “sock social” will be sure to enjoy it, as Mrs. Trimble is a model hostess and will spare no pains to make the evening a pleasant one.
