Eight years experience has satisfied me that this is the best general remedy for the people ex tant, and I do not hesitate to recommend it to be kept by every family and traveler, as a means of safety and protection against cholera. Miller's Effervescing Magnesia Aperlent, acts gently on the bowels, corrects acidity and flatulance, is highly recommended for the cure of dyspepsia, sick headache and costiveness, is a very agreable cooling drink. La dies who have used this remedy, find it peculiarly use ful and salutary, if not indispensable. Beware of the imitations of this medicine, sold elsewhere.
