Lall that bas been talked or written about the removal of ner. vous infirmitiee, ample experience has fully demonstrated that these Invaluable Pills exercise a greater and more beneficial influence over these multifarious and disheartening disorders than any other medi. cine.

They completely cleanse the blood, relieve both head and stomach of all faulty functions, expel all oppressive accumulations from the bowels, and purify both solids and fluids. With the blood perfect, and all poisons purged from the system, regularity must preTall throughout the body, aches and pains must cease, healthful energy must supplant weariness, and the shaky nerves must regain their wholesome tone.
