Read the "Ads" but don't ignore medical opinion if you want to -relieve constipation gently and safeiy -take the exact dose suited to your need -avoid danger of bowel strain A doctor will tell you^lhat the careless use of harsh laxatives will oflen do more harm than good. Harsh laxatives oflen drain the system, weaken the bowel muscles, and even affect the liver and kidneys. Fortunately, the public is fast reluming to laxatives in liquid form. / Can Constipation be safely relieved ? "Yesl" say medical men. "Yesl" say thousands who have followed this sensible medical advice: 1. Select a good liquid laxative. 2. Take the dose that you find suited to your system. 3. Gradually reduce the dose until bowels are moving regularly without assistance. Dr._CaldweU"s Syrup Pepsin is a prcscriptional preparation containing senna, a natural vegetable laxative which relieves constipation fently and safely. Why not try it? ome pill or tablet may be more convenient to carry. But there is no "convenience" in any catharlic that's taken so frequently, you must carry it wherever you go 1 What is the "Right" Laxative? In buying any laxalive, read the label. Not the claims, hut the contents. If it contains doubtful drugs, don't take it. Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin contains no minera! drugs. By using it, you avoid danger of strain. How many dimes and quarters arc spent on "popular" laxalivesl How quickly they count up, if von frequently use habit-forming helpsi A bottle of Dr. Cnldwcll's Syrup Pepsin would save you money-and bring you real relief. .Why Doctors gfve a liquid laxative The habitual use of harsh salts, or powerful drugs in the highly.conccntrated form of pills or tablets is risky.
