"I suffered for five years with stomach trouble and a general run down, condition," said Fred A. Dailey, 514 West Sixth street, Sioux City, Iowa. "I had little appetite and such food as I was able to eat soured in my stomach. I had attacks of indigestion that were frequent and severe. Finally I began to lose weight and strength and I realized that something had to be done. I tried many medicines and treatments without finding any relief. Fortunately, a friend recommended Konjola to me at this time. I can never express my appreciation for all this great medicine did for me. Although it has been over a month since I finished my fifth bottle of Konjola, not a single ailment of mine has returned. My appetite has greatly improved and, best of all, my food agrees with me. Indigestion and sour stomach are things of the past. I have gained ten pounds and feel better than I have in years." From four to eight bottles of Kon- jola have done for thousands of men and women just what it did for Mr. Dailey.
