Daniel J. Fry Has Such Faith In This
Dyspepsia Remedy That Ha
One of tho greatest successes in the
salo of medicine has been achieved by
Mi-o-na, the standard dyspepsia rem
edy, and its salo is increasing so rapid
ly that Daniel J. Fry, the popular drug
gist, has hard work to keep a stock on
hand. It is very popular with bankers.
ministers, lawyers and others where
business or profession keeps them close
ly confined, while those who have
brought on indigestion through irreg
ular eating, worry, or other causes,
have found relief in this reliable
Mi-o-na conies in tablet form and is
sold in a moto.1 box especially designed
for convenience in carrying the medi
cine in the pocket or purse. It is pleas
ant to tako, gives quick roliof and
should help any case, no matter of how
long a standing. This remedy has been
so uniformly successful that Daniel J.
Fry will in future sell Mi-o-na under a
positive guarantee to refund tho money
if it should not prove entirely satis
factory. No other dyspepsia medicine
ever had a largo enough percentage of
cures so that it could bo sold in this
manner. A gtinrantee like this speaks
volumes for tho merit of the romody.
There ia no timo like tho present to
do a thing that ought to bo done. If
any one has dyspepsia, today is tho best
time to begin curing it.
