Its virtues are derived solely from gas — largely oxygen gas — by a process requiring immense apparatus and 14 days
Page 825 - We will then mail you an order on a local druggist for a full-size bottle, and we will pay the druggist ourselves for it. This is our free gift, made to convince you ; to show you what Liquozone is, and what it can do. In justice to yourself, please accept it to-day, for it places you under no obligation whatever. Liquozone costs 5Oc and $i.
