The Sickest Man is Not Always in Bed.
AMERICUS, GEORGIA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1902.
The meanest kind of sickness Is just to be able
to attend to duties and yet not reel equal to the task.
The eternal grind keeps many in the traces who
ought to be in bed.
A thorough course of Johnson’s Chill and Fever
Tonic would give a new lease on life to such people.
It tones up the the whole digestive apparatus. Puts
the Liver in the best condition possible. Gives a
splendid appetite. Renews strength and restores

Deab Sib:—Some years ago I operated a float
ing saw-mill on the Savannah River. My base of
operations was being constantly changed, and my
hwids were always exposed to the* worst malarial
influences. I employed over one hundred hands,
and the work was conducted as much in water as
ontof it For this reason, in August and Septem
ber there was great loss of time and business, on
account of sickness among the workers.
My attention was then called to Johnson’s Chill
and Fever Tonic, and I determined to give the
medicine a trial. I procured It, and those who
were sick were put on this treatment, and those who
were feeling badly were at once given the Tonic.
In a short time every one of the one hundred hands
was well and reported for duty; and froflStthat time
oh I used nothing else but Johnson’s Tonic, and
never had another case of fever.
Yours very truly,
J. R. LASSITER.
