ZZZrSSZZ An Everyday Cake
Hr. Richard's Experience With Dif

Buttermilk for Three Years.
Cecilton. Md. Mr. George Richards,
of this place, during the past 12 years,
has probably tried more different diets
than the average person would ever use
in a lifetime.
What he has to say about his experi
ments, must therefore be highly interest
ing to anyone suifering from indigestion
or stomach troubles ot any kind.
He says : "For more than 12 years,
i suffered with stomach troubles, and
paid hundreds of dollars for doctor bills
and medicines. I was aiso operated on
I lived on dried peaches and buttermilk
for nearly three years. The only thing
that would not give me pain was ra eggs.
I was a physical wreck. 1 could not
sleep, and v. as as near crazy as a man
could well be.
1 must say that after taking two 25-cenl
packages of Thediord's black-Draught,
it did me more good than all 1 ever spent
for other medicines.
I have been working daily on the farm
ever since, and I Em as hard as iron."
