Stomach troubles are very common
in the summer time and you should not
nly be very careful about what you eat
just now, but more than this, you
should be careful not to allow your
stomach to become disordered, and
when the stomach goes wrong take Ko-
dol. This is the best known prepara
tion that Is offered to the people today
for dyspepsia or indigestion or any
stoinacn trouble, koooi digests an
foods. It is pleasant to take. It is
sold here by Dove A Williams.
E. E. Yarnell, who has resided in
Black Rock during the past two
years, arrivea in inaepenuence tne
last of the week in company with
his wife. They are visiting here for a
few days before taking their departure
for southern Oregon in some part of
which they intend to make their
future home. Mr. and Mrs. Yarnell
had charge of G. W. Comb's boarding
house, for the saw mill. Mr. and
Mrs. Osborne have charge of the I
boarding house now.
Nature has provided the stomach
with certain natural fluids known as
the digestive juices, and it Is through
these juices that the food we eat is act
ed upon in such a way as to produce the
rich, red blood that flows through the
veins of our body and thereby makes
us strong, healthy and robust, and it is
the weakening of these digestive juices
that destroys health. It is our own
fault if we destroy our own health, and
yet it Is so easy for any one to put the
stomach out of order. When you need
to take something take it promptly, but
take something you know is reliable-
something like Kodol For Dyspepsia
and Indigestion. Kodol is pleasaDt to
take, it is reliable a nd is guaranteed to
give relief. It is sold by Dove & Williams.
