The Grover Graham Dyspepsia Remedy is sold under a positive
guarantee that it will cure Dyspepsia, Heartburn, Gastritis or any

very first dose removes all distress, tones the weak stomach, pre
vents fermentation and restores digestion. Every nerve and fiber
of the body depends upon the stomach for its support. When di
gestion ceases a slow form of starvation begins, and the vital or
gans, deprived of their subsistauee, become debilitated. Good di
gestion is essential to health, proper assimilation of nourishjnent
means pure, rich blood, strong nerves, sound sleep and makes Iffe
worth living. The most chronic case of stomach disorder is imme
diately corrected by our remedy.
