"Oh, I AM SO TIRED!"
Is heard daily from old and young, rich and poor. Did you ever stop and consider
the causo of this remark? We will venture to say nine cases out of ten arc
caused by improper digestion. This, or other symptoms of Indigestion such as
nervousness, nausea, heart-burn, sour stomach, flatulency ana despondency,
should be a warning to you who are in danger of having indigestion, the great
est enemy of American health to-day, fasten its merciless fangs on your health.
Remember, "A Stitch in time saves nine", and a bottle or the celebrated
Kellum's Sure Cure for Indigestion has saved untold misery to people in many
parts of this broad land, t>y curing them permanently of this miserable disease.
Yes, not like the pepsin digestives that help for a time, but cures permanently
by causing the digestive organs to perform their functions. Nature being such
a great rectifier of its own ills, with the assistance of this powerful medicine,
gives you a healthy stomach and removes indigestion and its symptoms perma
nently. Sold on a $5.00 guarantee. 50 cents and $1.00 per bottle at
