ulceration of the stomach. I had
often found Electric Bitters excellent
for acute stomach and liver troubles.
so I prescribed; them. The patient
gained from the first, and has not had
an attack in 14 months." Electric Bit
ters are positively guaranteed for
dyspepsia, indigestion, constipation
and kidney troubles. Trv them. Onlv
