McDuff, Va.—“I suffered for several years,” says Mrs. J. B. Whittaker, of this place, “with sick headache, and stomach trouble. Ten years ago a friend told me to try Thedford’s Black-Draught, which I did, and 1 found it to be the best family medi cine for young and old. I keep Black-Draught on hand all the time now, and when my children feel a little bad, they ask me for a dose, and it does them more good than any medicine they ever tried. We never have a long spell of sick ness in our family, since we commenced using Black-Draught.” Thedford’s Black-Draught is purely vegetable, and has been found to regu late weak stomachs, aid digestion, re lieve indigestion, colic, wind, nausea, headache, sick stomach, and similar symptoms. It has been in constant use for more than 70 years, and has benefited more than a million people. Your druggist sells and recommends Black-Draught. Price only 25c. Get a Package to-day. n. G 12a W.
