I'm So Hungry
Says nearly everybody
After taking
There is a gentle
Dyspepsia, man at Malden-on-
the-Hudson, N. Y.,
named Captain A. G. Pareis, who
has written us a letter in which it
is evident that he has made up his
mind concerning some things, and
this is what he says:
" I have used your preparation
called August Flower in my family
for seven or eight years. It is con
stantly in my house, and we consider
it the best remedy for Indigestion,
and Constipation we
Indigestion, have ever used or
known. My wife is
troubled with Dyspepsia, and at
times suffers very much after eating.
The August Flower, however, re
lieves the difficulty. My wife fre
quently says to me when I am going
to town, 'We are out
Constipation of August Flower,
and I think you had
better get another ljottle.' I am also
troubled with Indigestion, and when
ever I am, I take one or two tea
spoonfuls lefore eating, for a day or
two, and all trouble is removed."
