Strictly speaking, Heckers' Fariua is neithei
stringent nor laxative, but restorative, strengen
ing the digestive and abaorbent system. In dis
ordered bowels, diarrhae, dysentery, and even in
cases of cholera, when food is deemed admissible
by the physicians, Hackers' Farina cannot fail to
be salutary; and wherever known is extensively
used in hospitals and private practice. Thv pres
ervation 01 health or the prevention of sickness
is at least as important as the curing of disea-e
People in health should therefore use Heckers
Farina freely, as common food, to preserve the in
estimable blesaing.
