EAT W1AT YOU LKE.
Don't Starve or Diet, but Use Mi-o na.
and Cure Your Stomach Troubles.
The average treatment of stomach trou
bles consist of a rigid diet list, which
often starves the patieut. Of conrse.it
would be foolish for any one who knows
that some foods are positively harmful
and poisonous to continue eating them,
even while following the Mi-o-na treat
ment, but in ordinary cases of stomach
troubles it is not necessary to starve or
diet if Mi-o-na is faithfully used, a tablet
before each meal.
This scientific remedy, for the core of
stomach troubles, acts upon the whole
digestive system, and strengthens the or
gans so tnat they are able to digest any
ood that is eaten without fear of distress.
If you suffer from loss of appetite, belch
ing of gases, sour taste in the mouth,
furred tongue, severe pains in the region
of the stomach,, depression of spirits, bad
dreams, lack of energy, a stomach cough,
offensive breath, headaches, back aches,
loss of strength and weight, yon can be
assured that these troubles are all due to
imperfect digestion.' , ' r '
Strengthen the stomach by taking a
Mi-o-na tablet before each meal, and
aeon you will gain in weight, strength
will return, and. your food will rive nour
khment so that the rich red blood will
carry good health to every part of the
system. .. .
Graham & Wells have so ma h confi
dence in the power or Mi-o-na to . cure
stomach troubles and resulting ills, that
they give a guarantee with every 50 cent
box to refund the money unless it cures
Spraying and Other Things.
Spraying fruit trees is certainly
a nauseous dose, so. to -speak, ..but
there is a degree of satisfaction fol
lowing the operation that recompen
ses largely for the trouble "and ex
pense undergone. , The satisfaction
of thinking tbe little scaly pest-, at
their jniecbievoua avocation, are suf
fering, closed in, dying and "dead,
is a contemplation worth consider
ation. : And, besides the "hope of
securing .better fruit, even if it be
without market value, is another
satisfaction, and itr it not satisfab-
tiob that one wants? The little du
ties performed ,r the little difficul' ies
overcome together make up tbe ag
gregate of humab satisfaction.
And, nowr speaking of . spraying
fruit trees leads mealeo to; say, that
I have sprayed my, hen house where
I knew tbe little parasitical nuisan
ces dwelt, I knew they, were "and
how l have reason to believe they
are not. " Yet the sprayer and pump
are just-the things to scatter death,
bell and destruction (lime, sulphur
arid salt) upon th 4 natural enemies
of the hen,. and now we anticipa e
the codlinr moth and have it in for

whentnat villainous VanthraonOee''
