I want to tell vou what wonderful benefit I have re- V
Reived from the use of Thedford's Black-Draught," writes
Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of aifton Mills, Ky.
"It certainly has no equal for la grippe, bad colds,
liver and stomach troubles. I firmly believe Black-Draught
saved my little girl's life. When she had the measles,
they went in on her, but one good dose of Thedford's
Black-Draught made them break out, and she has had no
more trouble. I shall never be without -
in mv finme." For constioation. indigestion-headache, dlzzl- o
ness, malaria, chills and fever, biliousness, and all similar H
ailments, Thedford's Black-Draught has proved itself a safe, q
reliable, gentle and valuable remedy. Q
If you suffer from any of these complaints, try Black- O
Draught It is a medicine of known merit Seventy-five O
years of splendid success proves its value. Good for H
young and old. For sale everywhere. Price 25 cents. M
