WARNING to EXPECTANT MOTHERS If you have ever been a patient in any hospital, you are probably familiar with, the advantages of a liquid laxative. Doctors know the value of the laxative whose dose can be rnea- Eured, and whose action can be thus regulated to suit your individual need. The public, too, is fast returning to the use of liquid laxatives. People have now learned that a properly prepared liquid laxative brings a perfect movement without discomfort at the time, or after. Dr. CaJdwcll's long experience with mothers and babies, and his remarkable record of nearly three thousand births without the loss of one mother' or child, should give anybody complete confidence in any prescription which he wrote! But most important of all, a gentle liquid laxative does not cause bowel strain to the most delicate system, and this is of the utmost importance to expectant mothers and to every child. Expectant mothers are urged to try gentle regulation of bowcJs with Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. It is a delightful tasting laxative of delightful action, made of fresh herbs, pure pepsin and active senna. Not a single mineral drug; nothing to cause strain, or irritate the kidneys. Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is an approved preparation and kept ready for use by all druggists. Daughter Is Born. LONEROCK--A 10 pound girl was born to Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Rath.
