Pain After Eating
Food Caused Intense Distress and
Medicines Failed to Relievo
Hood's Sarsaparllla Cured.
. - For many years I have been a sufferer
from very severe stomach trouble. I could
not eat without great pain in my stomach.
Mostot the time I hid no appetite. I took
medicines without obtaining relict. One
day w hen I had been suffering severe pain
In my stomach I read a testimonial in a
Mwspapcr which described my feelings
exactly. It was a case cured by Hood's
Banaparilla. I told my husband I belle-rid
this medicine would help me. He
went right away and got me a bottle of it
and I begin taking it. Before I had Uken
bait a bottle I felt better. I took four
bottles before I stopped and I was cured.
I say to all sufferers from stomach trouble,
take Hood's Sarsaparilla. It has relieved
me of more suffering t hsn any other medi
cine." Mrs. A. Stivers, Makands, TIL
