He Was Helped in A Wonderful Way. "For just about five years I felt myself slipping down hill in health," said Mr Stewart LONG, who works at Indiana, Pa.    "Just one thing after another seemed to be ailing me. It started with a cold. I just caught one cold after another. Great runnings of fluids were spilling from my nose and my hacking breath would be most loud. Then my stomach began to act up on me. I belched gas in vast amounts at once and felt bloated after every meal. Soon I got so bad that no solid food would agree with me if I got it to stay on my stomach.  But it was not habitual to stay there. Then my liver got so sluggish that I was bullious all the time.  My tongue got coated and I had a bad taste in my mouth. My breath was bad and my skin was yellow. My eyes looked so tired my friends began to comment on it. I was troubled with constipation and in the mornings that I had to move around in the bed just to loosen up before I could get up. I had pains over my kidneys. I quit taking my medicines in disgust. My nephew brought over a bottle of WORLD'S TONIC. We fought at first. I refused it. We argued more and it was brutal. I tried it because I didn't want my nephew to come for a visit and bury me instead. Well, since I've started taking World's Tonic, I have a new view of life. The pains over my kidneys are gone, my constipation has loosened; My stomach forms no more gas in great amounts at once, I know I shall feel ready to perform any reasonable work in just a few days. World's Tonic has brought my strength back and is sold by Widman & Teah, Heasley and all other first-class drug stores.
