I decided to try Bydale's Stomach . ,<?/ Tablets, being assured by a friend, they were a good dyspepsia medicine. After using them , *4 for a few days, I began to realize that I was getting better. I gave up the doctor's pres- , crlptlon and have gained SO pounds while using two boxes of these tablets. 1 never felt - ft better in my life, and accredit Bydale's Stoip* 3% acb Tablets with having cured me. I can recomend them, most heartily, to sufferers from nervous Indigestion and general rundown conditions of the system. C. A. Milford. A willing heart adds feather to the heel.
