Nervous Headache
The intense throbbing, splitting headachcs that malce
life almost unendurable, yield almost iramediately to
the mild, soothing influence of SHELDON'S HEAD
ACHE TABLETS. There is not a single fault to be
lound with this sterling rcmedy ; it does not disturb
the stomach nor does your head feel badly after the
cure has been effccted. It is such a prorapt, efficient
and harmless retnedy that you should keep it at hand
ready for use and cure the headache before it gets
fairly started.
Prlce xoc dozen
If it doesn't cure, your raoney back.
