The French say "it is the impossible
that happens." This has proved to be
the case with the Mount Lebanon
Shakers. The whole scientific world
has been laboring tocuredysuepsia, but
every effort seemed to meet with de
feat. The suffering from stomach
troubles, has become almost universal.
Multitudes have no desire for food and
that which they do eat causes them
pain and distress. Sleepless nights are
the rule and not the exception, and
thousands of sufferers have become dis
couraged. The Shakers of Mount Leba
non recently came to the front witli
their Tiew Digestive Cordial, which
contains not only a food already diges
ted, but is a digester of food. 1 1 prompt
