Dr. Robertson's Celebrated
| Texas Bitters will give tone
and action to the Stomach and
promote Digestion. They are entirely
vegetable, and will, in all cases, renovate
the whole system, and give health and vigor
to the frame. Persons of sedentary habita
should occasionally use them, as they will
prevent depression of the spirits.
Weak and delicate persons are made
strong by using these Bitters; in fact, they
are a family medicine, that can be adminis-
tered with perfect safety to a child, a deli-
cate female, or an old person. Persons vi-
siting districts harassed annually with fever
and ague will, by a timely use of these Bit-
ters, escape this distressing disease. Pre-
vention is better than cure.
Full directions for their use will be found
within the wrappers about each bottle.
These Bitters require no certificates of re-
markable cure; the name of Dr. Joseph W.
Robertson, as their patron, is a sufficient
guarantee, he having prescribed them for
many years in his private practice, with the
greatest success; and ihe demand for them
having increased to so great an extent, that
it has become necessary to manufacture
them extensively for public distribution.
Persons who may wish to sell these Bit-
ters, as agents, will please address
