Things Worth Remembering.
When you feel a kind of goneness abou
the stomach it is a sign that vour fo d
does not sit well. an1 that you are about
to have a fit of indigestion.
When you begin to feel nervous and
are unable to sit still comforably; when
your clothes suddenly set-m to lose their
tit and become too tight in places, tbe fit
of indigestion is surely upon you.
When this fit of indigestion is repeated
from day to day it finally resolves itself
Remember that three to 10 of Bran-
dreth's Pills will cure the worst case of
indigestion or dyspepsia, or both, and
that a regular course of them, say two
every night for a week or 10 days, will
act as a preventive of either complaint.
