Would Wot Suffer So Again For Fif
ty Times Its Price.
I awoke last night with severe
pains In my stomach. I never felt so
badly In all my life. When I came
down to work this morning I felt so
weak I could harly work. I went to
Miller & McCurdy's drug store nnd
they recommended Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Itemedy.
It worked like magic and one dose
fixed me all right. It certainly Is the
finest thing I over used for stomach
trouble. I shall not be without It In
my homo hereafter, for I should not
care to endure tho sufferings of last
night again for fifty times Its price.
