I had been troubled five months,
with Dyspepsia. I had a fullness,
after eating, and a heavy load iu the
pit of my stomach. Sometimes a.
deathly sickness would overtake
me. I was working for Thorna
McHenry.Dr uggist, Allegheny City,
Pa., in whose employ I had been for
seven yeare. I used August Flower
for two weeks. I was relieved of alL
trouble. I can now eat things I
aareti not touch before. I have
gained twenty pounds since my re
covery. J. D. Cox,AUegheny, Pa.
