A weak stomach means weak
stomach nerves, always. And this
is also true of the heart and kid

continue to drug the stomach or
stimulate the heart and kidneys.
The weak nerves, not the organs
themselves need this help. This
explains why Dr. Shoop's Restor

so many sick ones. It goes direct
to lin? cause ol these diseases. Test
this vital truth and sec. Jno. T.
