When you feel irritable, tired and
despondent—when you have nervous
twitchings, specks before the eyes,
headaches, sour stomach, heartburn,
indigestion and pains in the colon and
bowels—you suffer from indigestion
which soon develops into dyspepsia—
the chief cause of nerve exhaustion—
you need I\Ji-o-na at once. \
. Miona is not a cure-all, but a
scientific remedy that surely ends
stomach misery. It builds up and
strengthens the stomach walls and
glands, improves quickly the digestive
system. Then the vital force and
nerve energy is restored, imparting
strength and good 'spirits to the dis-
couraged, run-down and weak.
