it is so common many people neglect

vous people are really so because their
stomachs are cut of gear; weary,
languid, faded out women owe their
condition. to imperfect indigestion.
When nearly every person vou meet
is afflicted with weak digestion it is
not surprising that nearly every se
cret patent medicine on the market
claims to lie a cure for disjepsia, as
well as a score of other troubles, when
in fact, as Dr. Werlhier says, there is
but one genuine dyspepsia cure w hich
is perfectly safe and reliable, and
morco er. Ihis remedy is not a patent
medicine, but it is a .sciontilie combi
