"Konjola is the very medicine my case required," said Mrs. George C. Raber, Capitol Hotel, Lincoln. "For seven years I had stomach trouble. I could not eat eggs at all, and lots of other things disagreed with me. After eating, I had awful cramps, and at times vomiting spells, I have taken only three bottles of Konjola, and now eat eggs or anything I like without misery. Konjola has certainly rid me of stomach trouble. Never before have I Indorsed a medicine, but I surely can recommend Konjola after the wonders It worked for me." Although many people state that one bottle of Konjola brought relief, it is recomended that six or eight .bottles be taken to obtain the best results. Konjola Is sold In Algona, Iowa, at E. W.

MAKE Unprofitable NOTICE All the banks of Kossuth county are carrying the minimum amount of currency necessary for their daily counter needs. " The banks therefore ask for the approval and assistance of their customers in their SAFETY FIRST measure, and when more than a nominal amount of currency is required, give the banks timely notice so that additional currency may be shipped in. This method of foiling and preventing bank robbery is strongly recommended by the Iowa State Bankers' 1 Association to all the counties in the state, as it makes bank robbery unprofitable and protects the lives of the bank employees and customers. • . ,*-;••... * •* ,»i* , \ < *tf j . $ $ W.
