a long while I suffe.red vith stomach troub!e. I would
have pains and a hcavy feeling after my meals, a most
disagreeable taste in my mouth. If I ate anything with
bulter,oil or grease, I would spit it up. I bevan to have
regular sick headache. I had used pills and tablets, but
after a course of these, I would be constipated. It just
seemed to tear my stomach all up. I found they were
no good at all for my trouble. I heard
