The Worst Form.
Mutitudes are singing the praises
of Kodol, the new discovery which is
making so many sick people well and
weak people strong by digesting what
they eat, by cleansing and sweeten
ing the stomach and by transform
ing their food into the kind of pure,
rich, red blood that makes you feel
good all over. Mrs. Cranfill, of Troy,
I. T., writes: "For a number of years
I was troubled with indigestion and
dyspepsia which grew into the worst
form. Finally I was induced to use
Kodol, and after using four bottles I
am entirely cured. I heartily rec
ommend Kodol to all sufferers from
indigestion and dyspepsia." Take a
dose after meals. It digests what you
eat. All druggists.

lectric Oil. A cut? Use Dr. Thomas'
