Lady hi Goodwatcr Describes Her
Distressing Experience and
Tells How She Was
Oood water, Mo. 'Ever since I waa
little girl," says Mrs. Kiley Laramore,
"I was a great sufferer from dyspepsia.
I suffered misery after eating, and had
I thought I had to suffer this way aa
long as I lived, but when I began to take
Thrdford's Black-Draught, in small
doses, every night, the heartburn was all
gene in a few days, and I could eat
I took two small packages in all, and
although that was some time ago, the
dyspepsia has not returned.
I speak a good word for Thedford's
Black-Draught whenever I have the op
portunity." If eating causes distress, we urge you
to try Thcdlord's Ulack-Draught. It
cleanses the system, helps the stomach to
il. t its food, regulates the bowels, and
stimulates the liver.
It acts gently and is without bad after
effects. Try it. Price 25c.
