Loss of Appetite.
Is the final signal of disorder and
decay. The usual loss of appetite
is often caused by functional distur
bances in the stomach. The stomach
fails to do the wor': required, the
appetite is gone, and the body stir
rers from lack cf nourishment. Such
a stomach needs to be cleaned and
sweetened. Meritol Tonic Digestive
is made especially to assist the stom
ach to digest food, and promote a
healthy appetite. This remedy is
sold on ' our positive guarantee, and
we ask you to give it a trial. It is
a genuine tonic. H. O. Rolfs, Rock
