“My health was in a bad condition
for over a year,” said Mrs. Louise
Lee, 2922 South Main street, Fort
Worth. “I was very nervous and the
least noise upset me. I did not sleep
well at night. I had neuritis in my
shoulders and arms and often found
my housework more than I could do.
My stomach was weak and food fer-
mented causing heartburn and head-
aches. My kidneys were affected and
my back was stiff anl sore all the
“Konjola certainly gave me the sur-
prise of my life. By the time I had
finished the third bottle, my nervous
condition had been righted. Neuritis
pains and soreness have vanished and
there is not a trace of that ailment
now. My food digests perfectly and I
can eat anything I wish. My kidneys
are again normal.”
It is of just such endorsements as
this that the l-eeord of Konjola is
made up. It is recommended for ail-
ments of the stomach, liver, kidneys
and bowels, .and rheumatism, neuritis
Konjola is sold in Lampasas at
Mackey’s drug store, and by all the
best druggists in all towns through-
out this entire section. (w-adv.)
