A REAL FRIEND.
"I suffered from dyspepsia and in
digestion for fifteen years," says W.
T. Stnrdevant of Merry Oaks, N. C.
"After I had tried many doctors and
medicines to no avail one of my friends
persuaded me to try Kodol. It gave
immediate relief. I can eat almost
anything I want now and my digestion
is good. I cheerfully recommend
Kodol." Don't try to cure stomach
trouble by dieting. That only further
weakens the system. You need whole
some, strengthening food. Kodol en
ables you to assimilate what you eat
by digesting it without tbe stomach's
aid. Hamilton Drug Co. *
