itself, but, by causing the blood to

is the best cure for Indigestion, even
when complicated vrfthLiver Complaint,
is proved by the following testimony
from Mrs. Joseph Lake, of BrockwUj
"Liver complaint and indigestion
made my life a burden and came near
ending my existence. For more than
four years I suffered untold agony, was
reduced almost to a skeleton, and hardly
had strength to drag myself about All
kinds -of food distressed me, and only
the most delicate could be digested at
nil. ' 'Within the time mentioned several
Shysicians treated me without giving re
ef. Nothing that I took seemed to do
any permanent good until I commenced
the use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla, which
has produced wonderful results. Soon
after commencing to take the Sarsapa
rilla I could see an improvement in my
condition. My appetite began to return
und with it came the ability to digest
all the foodtaken, my strength im
proved each day, and after a few
months of faithful attention to your
directions, I found myself a well
woman, able to attend to all household
duties. The medicine has given me a
new lease of life."
