Headaches seem to be habitual with inany people; some are seldom, if ever, free from them, con- tinually from the dull throhblngs. the intense pains; sometimes in on.i pan. sometimes in another, and then again over tho whole head. There is only one. way to re- lief trom these persistent headaches, and that is by goins direct, to the seat of the trouble, for unless the cause is removed, the headaches will still continue to exist. The fact that Burdock Blood Bit- ters keep the stomach, liver ami els toned up is proof enough to show that it will eliminate the cause of the headaches. Mrs. JIaroId Lnnain. OWI.MI Sound.
