is perfect and whose stomach performs
its every function is never sick. 'Kodol
c’eanses, purifies and sweetens the
stomach, and cares positively and per
manently all stomach troubles, dyspep
aia and indigestion. It is tbs wonderful
reconetroctive tonic that is making so
many sick people well aud weak people
strong by conveying to their bodies ah
of the nourishment in the food they eat.
Rev. J. H. Holladay, of Holladay, MiaB.
writes : Kodol has cared me. I consider
it the best remedy I ever need for
dyspepsia and stomach troubles. I was
given up by physicians. Kodol saved
my lile. Take it alter meals. For sale
