Half of the nervousness in the world, ail of the disturbing dreams and night? mares can be ended in a fewwt simple, inexpensive treatment. Upset stomach is the cause of nerv ousnesss and bad dreams. Your food is lying in your stomach undigested and fermenting; it is forming poi gases which irritate the pnoumogastric nerve that leads direct from the brain, and ends in a network of tiny branches running through the stomach. It is also the irritation of this great pneumogastric nerve that causes head? aches. Many times people have severe headaches and know they are caused by the stomach, but do not know in what manner. If you are nervous, have dreams or nightmare, and do not sleep sound at night, get a 50 cent box of Mi-o-na stomach tablets and take one or two after or with meals. They relieve dis? tressed stomach in 5 minutes. Sold by druggists everywhere and by Goolrick's Pharmacy, who guarantees them to cure indigestion or money back. WHY SALVES FAIL TO CURE ECZEMA Scientists are now agreed that the eczema germs are lodged not in the outer skin or epidermis, but in the inner skin. Hence, a penetrating liquid is required, not an outward salve that clogs the pores. We recommend to all eczema patients the standard prescription Oil of Winter green,compounded in liquid form, known as D. D. D. Prescription. A trial bottle of this D. D. D. Prescription, at only 25 cents, will instantly relieve the itch. We have sold and recommended this remedy for years, and know of won? derful cures from its use. We recom? mend it to our patrons.
