t!r. RaglanJ Writes Interesting
Letter on This Subject.
Madison Heights, Va. Mr. Chas. A.
Ragland, of this place, writes: ,fl have
been taking Thedford's Black-Draught
for indigestion, and other stomach troub
les, also colds, and find it to be the very
best medicine I have ever used.
After taking Black-Draught for a fev
days, I always feel like a new man.
Nervousness, nausea, heartburn, pain
in pit of stomach, and a feeling of full
ness after eating, are sure symptoms of
stomach trouble, and should be given the
proper treatment,- as your strength and
health depend veryMargely upon your
food and its digestion.
To get quick and permanent relief
from these ailments, you should take
a medicine of known curative merit.
Its 75 years of splendid success, in the
treatment of just such troubles, proves
the real merit of Thedford's Black-
Draught. Safe, pleasant, gentle in action,
and without bad after-effects, it is sure
to benefit both young and old. For sale
everywhere. Price 25c. KCizj.
