MENTHOLATUM 6i,r* C O M F O R T Da,l-y helps these youngsters just as it helps their mothers and fathers. One of the many such cases is that of 6 year old John Chesmore. This was brought out very emphatically by Mrs. Gertrude Chesmore, 712 O Ave., N. W., Cedar Rapids, who says: "I don't think anyone ever worried more over a child than John's farther and I did. You see, his bowels were so badly constipated that we were forced to give him a laxative almost every night, and he never seemed to have the least pep or interest in things that you'd ordinarily expect of a youngster his age. He never craved food and even when we made him eat just a little he'd often be distressed with sourness, gas and indigestion; sometimes, in fact, we wouldn't even be able to keep milk on his stomach. At night he could never get the sleep he needed, which was due, I suppose, to his high state of nervousness. "Finally, his grandmother persuaded us to start him on Natex, however, and we were soon to see some big changes. "Though we gave him smaller doses than is usual, it required only a day or two to get his bowels moving just excellently. It wasn't long after this, either, that he was actually asking for food! And he \yas eating everything put before him without any of that old distress.
