Miss Lucy W. Lewis, of Randolph, Mass., a well known and highly respected lady, writes under date of

January 22, 1895: “I can speak only in praise of Ripass TABULES. I am troubled by what my physician has called Nervous Dyspepsia. My work, that of a school teacher, often brings on a state of intense nervousness, which prevents digestion and results in severe headaches. I have found that by watching my feelings, and taking a Tabule with meals—as I feel myself becoming tired and nervous—I get relief at the time and prevent further trouble. I have derived much benefit during the time I have used them, and do not intend to be without them."

Ripans Tabules are sold by druggists, or by mail if the price (50 cents a box) is sent to The Ripaps Chemical Company, No. 10 Spruce street, New York. Sample vial, 10 cents.
