TROVE: The Ballarat Star (Vic. : 1865 - 1924) Wednesday 20 October 1920 p 7 Article
'A LITTLE DOCTOR FOR DYSPEPTICS If you want quick relief from the pains and distress of indigestion, dyspepsia, food fermentation and acidity, just take two or three little tablets of Bisurated Magnesia after eating or whenever pain is felt. Bisurnted Magnesia tablets are absolutely harmless, and enable the dyspeptic to enjoy a good- old-fashioned meal with out fear of pain or distress to follow. That’s why Bisurated Magnesia is called “The Little Doctor for Dyspeptics.”. Go to the nearest chemist and get a packet of Bisurated Magnesia tablets to-day; he sells them in handy flasks at small cost, and with every one is included a binding guarantee of satisfaction or refund of money. Thus, unless this “Little Doctor” gives you the benefit you desire, you pay him nothing. Bisurated Magnesia is also obtainable in powder form. Beware of substitutes. Look for the maker’s name—Bismag. Ltd., which appears on every .genuine package'.

The bottle is part of a large collection of chemist's equipment which came from the old Wyndham pharmacy in Balaclava Street. This was the United Friendly Society Dispensary, known as the UFS.
