Nowfl is scarco and time valuable
When a person is losing ll sh
and wasting away there is cause
for alarm. Nothing so worries a
physician. Consumptives would
never die if they could regain
their usual weight. In fact there
would be no consumption if there
was no wasting of the system. The
cause of this loss of flesh is a fail
ure to properly digest the food
eaten. Nine-tenths of all our dis
eases date hack to some derange
ment of the stomach.
The Shaker Digestive Cordial
will stop the wasting of the body.
It acts by causing the food we eat
to he digested so as to do good, for
undigested food docs mure harm
than good. The Cordial contains
already digested and is a digester
of food as well.
