IS not only a distressing complaint, ot
itself, but, by causing the blood' to
become depraved aud the system en
feebled, is the parent of innumerable
maladies. That Aycr's Sarsaparilla
is the best euro for Indigestion, even
when complicated with Liver Complaint,
is. proved by tho following testimony
from Mrs. Joseph Lake, of Brockway
"Liver complaint and Indigestion
made my life a burden and camo near
ending my existence. For more, than
four years I suffered untold ugonv, was
reduced almost to a skeleton, and hardly
had strength to drag myself about. All
kinds of food distressed me, and only
the most delicate could be digested at
all. Within the time mentioned several
physicians treated mo without giving re
lief. Nothing that I took seemed to do
any permanent good until I commenced
tho use of Aycr's Sarsaparilla, which
lias produced wonderful results. Soon
after commencing to take the Sarsapa
rilla I could see an improvement In my
condition. My appctito began to return
and with It came tho ability to digest
all tho food taken, my strength Im
proved each day, and after a few
months of faithful attention to your
directions, I found myself a well
woman, able to attend to all household
duties. The medlciuo has given me a
new lease ot life."
