a long while I suffered with stomach trouble. 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
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.
