Yet nervous diseases cannot be radically cured by direct application to the nerves ^nemselves. l*hey may be ameliorated for a time in this way but not eradicated. In nine cases out of ten complaints of this class arise from a vitiated condition of the digestive and the secretive apparatus. The stomach is a royal organ, and all the other portions of the system sympathize with it, as the servants of a prince sympathize with their master. It feeds and sustains each one of themeven the brain itself, the fountain head of sensationand when the stomach fails to discharge its important office efficiently they all falter. It is a common thing to say that the nerves need bracing up. But they cannot be braced up by external means. The stomach must do the bracing, and to that end it must be toned, vitalized, invigorated. For this purpose there is no preparation extant comparable to Plantation Bitters. It promotes healthy digestion, strengthens the brain, and the invigorated brain gives tone and firmness to the nerves. All stimulants give a temporary impulse to the nervous system, but unless their exciting principle is modified by judicious medication, the reaction leaves the individual who resorts to them for relief in a worse condition than before. The effect of raw spirit, even if pure, is pernicious to the stomach, and consequently to the nerves ; how much more sothen must be that of the adulterated liquors of the bar room. They all contain more or less of active poison, and when their first exhilirating effect passes off, the poison begins to work, weakening and partially paralyzing tne assimilating organ, and seriously affecting the great sympathetic nerve connected with it, the lesser sensitive fibres and the brain. Let the nervous, therefore, abstain from dram drinking. Plantation Bitters, with its perfectly wholesome stimulating element, leavened with the most potent tonics of thf vegetable kingdom, and the juices and extracts of the most valuable aperient and anbib^ous roots and herbs, is the grand specific for this distressing ailment. In its composition are summed up aol tne ingredients requisite to effect a permanent cure. Of all preparations for disorders of ohe nervesof every type and speciesit is the safest, the surest, and the best. Pure Air. pDuring long periods of wet weather in the Southern States, in the low-lands of Mexico, in the West Indies and in South America, the atmosphere becomes fetid by the rapid decay of vegetable matter and by an extraordinary accumulation of carbonic acid gas, and a lack of pure oxygen. In this stage it is poisonous to be introduced into the blood through the lungs. It is the function of the lungs in good health to throw off at least a pound and a half a day of carbome, acid gas, and^ to take in the same quantity of oxygen. People who live in lo-w latitudes where malarial fevers are liable to exist, should not go out until the rays of the morning Sun have lifted the fogs and dispersed the feversthey should seek shelter in the evening before they return. If the weather continues cloudy, damp and rainy, even though it be warm, fires should be kindled to dry the air and expel the poisonous fevers. Persons who have observed these simple rules, and keep the system, well regulated by a constant use of Plantation Bitteks, as prescribed in the printed directions which accompany each bottle, have been known to live over a hundred years in the very worst of Yellow Fever districts, and yet never contract this terrible disease. The vegetable ingredients of the Bitters, are Dandelion, Chamomile, and that wonderful Elixir of lifeCaliSxYya Bark, fre&n from the Peruvian Forests of South America. No sensible planter will ever be without Plantation Bittebs. rrHE PERFUME OF FIFTY FRAGRANT bouquets is concentrated in a single bottle JL of Magnolia Water. How fresh, how inspiriting, how entrancing is its odor. How it cools the skin when applied as a cosmetic. What a ravishing scent it imparts to the bath. How it perfumes the breath and beautifies the gums when used, diluted, as a mouth wash. What a rare counter-irritant after shaving; and what greenhouse atmosphere is half as sweet as the aroma from a handkerchief that has been moistened with this delightful toilet water ?
