For Your Stomach's Sake.
"Take a little wine for your stomach's
sake," is a celebrated piece of advice.
"Take a little Pe-nr-na for your stomach's
sake," is a saying that bids fair to be
i come equally famous. The stomach is at
once a most delicate and a most abused
organ and, between its delicacy and its
abuse, it is no wonder that It is constan
tly giving its owner trouble. There is
no medicine that will hold the stomach
so promptly and so effectively as Pe-ru
na. Its action is very simple, and it
leaves no bad effects whatever. Espe
cially in summer time is it a valuable
remedy to have at hand. For hot wea
ther easily affects the stomach, and any
little imprudence in eating or disorder
of the system deranges it. Then it is
that Pe-ru-na will show itself to be just
