"Simple Mixture Used in Ladonia"
Many in Ladonia are now using the simple buckhorn bark and glycerine mixture know as Adler-i-ka, the new German appendicitis remedy. A SINGLE DOSE relieves constipation, sour stomach or gas on the stomach almost instantly. This simple mixture antisepticizes the digestive organs and draws off the impuitites and people are surprised how QUICKLY it helps. L. F. Fry.
The same edition had an add for:
F. P. Moring, Jeweler, at L. F. Fry's.
