I would have pains and a heavy feeling after my meals, a most disagreeable taste in my mouth. If I ate anything with butter, oil or grease, I would spit it up. 1 began to have regular sick headache. I had used pills and tablets, but after a course of these, I would be constipated. It Just seemed to tear my stomach all up. I found they were no good at all for my trouble. I heard THEDFOZtD'S 101 ITU recommended very highly, to began to use it It cured me. I keep it in the house all the time. It is the best liver medicine made. I do not have sick headache or stomach trouble any more." Black-Draught acts on the jaded liver and helps it to do its important work of throwing out waste materials and poisons from the sys tem. This medicine should be in every household for use in time of need. Oet a package today. If you fed sluggish, take a dose tonight You will feel fresh to morrow. Price 25c a package. All druggists.
