Majority of Friends Thought Mr.
Hoghes Would Die, Bat
OM Helped Him to
Pomeroyton, Ky.-In interesting ad
vices from this place. Mr. A. J. Hughes
writes as follows : "I was down with
stomach trouble for five (5) yearc, and
would have sick headache so bad, at
times, that I thought surely 1 would die.
1 tried different treatments, but they
did not seem to do me any good.
I got so bad, 1 could not eat or sleep,
and all my friends, except one, thought I
would die. He advised me to try
Thedlord'a Black-Draught, and quit
taking other medicines. I decided to
take his advice, although I did not have
any confidence In it.
I have now been taking Bhtck-Draught
for three months, and it lias cured me
haven't had those awful sick headaches
since 1 began using it.
1 am so thankful for what Black?
Draught has done (or me."
Thedford's Black-Draught has been
found a very valuable medicine for de
rangements of the stomach and liver. It
is composed of pure, vegetable herbs,
contains no dangerous ingredients, and
acts gently, yet surely. It can be (reely
used by young and old, and should be
kept in every family chest.
