You b««m« nervous, despondent, sick, feverish and miserable, your meals sour and almost nauseate you. Then you. resort 'to acctanilide, aspirin or the bromides which temporarily relieve but do not rid the blood of those irritating toxinli. A glass o£ hot water with a teaspoonful ot HmesUme phosphate in it, drank before breakfast for awhile, will not only wash these poisons from your system and cure you of headache but will cleanse, purify and freshen the entire alimentary canal; ; Ask your pharmacist for a quarter pound'ot limestone'phosphate.
