It is impossible for any drug to
iigest food without the aid of the
stomach. Man cannot do nature's
work-he can only assist her, and any
concern claiming that they have a
remedy that will digest food without
the aid of the stomach, thereby allow?
ing the stomach to lay idle and rest,
are claiming the impossible. All
remediea for stomach troubles should
be given with tbe sole purpose of aid
ing nature and enabling the stomach
to do its own work. One of the best
Stomach Specialists in the U. S. wrote
the prescription from which ."Rydale's
Stomacu Tablets are made and ihey
enable the stomach to do its own work.
