Catarrh of file
For many years it has been supposed that
Catarrh of the Stomach caused indigestion
and dyspepsia, but the truth is exactiy the
opposite. Indigestion causes catarrh. Re?
peated attacks of Indigestion inflames the
mucous membranes lining the stomach and
exposesthe nerves of the stomach, thus caus?
ing the glands to secrete mucin instead of
the juices of natural digestion. This is
eailed Catarrh of the Stomach.
KM Dyspepsia Cure
relieves all inflammation of the mucous
membranes lining the stomach, protects th?
nerves, and cures bad breath, sour risings,
a sense of fullness after eating, indigestion,
? dyspepsia and all stomach troubles.

R. M. James, who shows his keep

tree. He has the largest stock of
merchandise, besides a furniture
store, with undertaker's department
and a good livery business. Some
