HERE'S NEW VIGOR FOR OVERWORKED STOMACHS Crown Drug Co., tho popular druggists, have been in the drug business long enough to have their own opinion of the best way of selling medicines. The., say the plan adopted by Mi-o-na, the great dyspepfia remedy, is the fairest they have ever heard of. They don't believe that a mcdl- cine ought to be paid for unless it does the user some good. And Ml-o-na Is sold under a positive guarantee to relieve dyspepsia or to refund the money. You simply leave 50 cents on deposit with Crown Drug Co. and if, after you ~liave used the box of Ml-o-na you decide that it has done you no good, all you have to do is to tell them so and they will return your money. Hundreds of people have been relieved of stomach agonies by using this remarkable remedy. It is not simply a food digester; it is a medicine that puts all of the digestive organs into normal con dition and gives ruddy, glowing, vigorous health. A change for the better will be seen alter the first few doses of Ml-o-na, and its continued use will soon give the power to eat anything at any time and not suffer distress aft erward. Ml-o-na is sold under a posi tive guarantee to refund the money if It does not cure. This Is the strongest proof that can be offered as to the merit of the medicine. Nothing lessens a man's suc cess in his work or a woman's fascinating personality more than a weak stomach, with its at- tending evils. I'se Mi-o-na and see how much more there Is in life. -**■******■■■■■*****>*-************. nil M *» -_--_———--. FRYE & CO.'S MARKETS [menclne next Saturday, 3j29, our markets will at 8:00 p. m.
