your nerves are weak. It
is the lack of nerve force

Dr. Miles' Nervine cures
the sick when it restores
nerve strength, and puts
the power behind the or-
gans to do their work.
"Almost thrro years I suffered from
nervousness, indigestion, and palpita-
tion 6f tho heart. I could not cat or
sleep with comfort, or walk or talk
without suffering. Altogether I was
In a bad condition. My doctor did not
s«cm to do m<> ;iny good. I had tried
so many remedies that I did not have
much hope of any of them doing me
any good. Dr. .Miles' Nervine whs
suggested hy a friend. I got relief
from tho first, and after a few days
I felt like n new person. It not only
relieved my heart Rnd nerves, hut
