To lift that load off of the stomach
take Kodol Dyspepsia Cure. It digests
what you eat. Sour stomach, belching
gas on stomach and all disorders of the
stomach that are curable are instantly
relieved and permanently cured by the
use of Kodol Dyspepsia Cure. S. P.
Storrs, a druggist at 297 Main street,

pepsia Cure is giving such universal
satisfaction and is so surely becoming
the positive relief and subsequent cure
for this distressing ailment. I feel that
I am always sure to satisfy and gratify
my customers by recommending It to
them. I write this to show how well
the remedy is spoken of here." Kodol
Dyspepsia Cure was discovered after
years of scientific experiments and will
