Agriculture, and contains not
only a detailed account of the
investigation and experiments
made by the aathors, but also
concise summaries of symptoms,
treatment and remedies, which
bring the results f the discov

application by stackowners. By
reason of the fact that enly 1,000

using anything else for indigestion

and stop fermentation of undi

that is all they took when feeling
