W. H. Sheldon Guarantees to Return
the Money If Mi-o-na Does Not
"It is a pleasure to sell a medicine
when our cuatomera come in afterward
and tell us liow inucli good it haa done
them," wiid W. H. Sheldon, tlie popular
druggist, to a Middlebury man, and that
ia why we liko to bpII and recommend
Mi-o-iui, tlie dyspepsin remedy. We
lavo so inueh faiih in thia article that
we are going to guarantee it in the fu
ture. and will return the money to any
purchaser of Mi-o-na whotn it doeB not
help. That mny seem rash, liut our cus
tomers have aaid ao many good worda in
itR favor that we do not expecttohave
many pnckagea returned.
"Anyone wlio haa dyBpepsia, whose
food does not digeat well, and who hus
to lake thought hh to what he can eat,
and when, can leave 50 cents deposit at
iny stnre and take honie a box of Mi-o-na
and if the remedy does not regulate his
digeation and help hia dyBpepaia he can
withdraw hia money."
This ehowa greatfaith in tho merit of
Mi-o-na. It Ia really a moat unusual
medicine and the rapid increase of salt-s
since W. II. Sheldon introduced it in
Middlebury ehowa that it does all that it
ia claimed to do reliovea dyspepsin,
regulntea digestion and enablea those
who use it to eat juht what they want
with 110 fear of troublo ufter. adv.
