Loss of appetite is one of the surest
signs of inward weakness and if you
are wise you will heed the warning
promptly and take a few doses of Hos-
tetter's Stomach Bitters. The system
requires a certain amount of nourish-
ment every day in order to keep up
health and strength and to ri*plari; the
waste portions. This can only be ac-
complished with a keen appetite and
and perfect digestion and assimilation
of the food. Then again Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters should be taken. It
will stimulate the flowof gastric juices,
so essential to perfect digestion, and
aid in every way possible. For over
56 years it has been used with wonder-
ful success in cases of Poor Appetite,
Heartburn, Flatulency, Indigestion,
