A Remedy No Family
Should Do Without
No matter how healthy a human Do
ing may be, it Is safe to say that not
many months are passed without some
obstruction of the bowels; In other
words, constipation, even if only temp
orary. Tho bloating, the dull feeling may
start after the evening meal. If a lax
ative is not taken that night it is certain
that sleep will not be sound, and you
will awaken unrefreshed.
Hence, It Is Important for you and for
all the members of your family that a
good, reliable laxative be always kept
In the houso for Just such emergency.
It is sure to be needed, and when needed
you want it at hand. No family that is
careful of its health can do without
such a remedy. But the question of
which remedy to havo at hand is also
of vast Importance.
The laxative most highly recommend
ed by the majority of intelligent Ameri
cans as being best for babies and
grownups Is Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pep
sin. It Is a llnuld. laxatlve-tonlc mild.
vand never grlpeB, is effective on robust
pcopie ana can oe given wun oaieiy
to an infant. Children like it because
of these gentle qualities and because
it Is pleasant to the taste.
It Is the best all-around remedy you
can have In the house for any dlsordor
of tho stomach, liver, or bowels, and
many people like Mrs. W. A. Craig, 1020
Pa. ave. S. E., Washington, D. C, and
Rev. C. W. Hick, 150 Ohio ave., Charles
ton, W. Va., say they would as soon be
without the necessities as without Dr.
Caldwell's 8yrup Pepsin.
Anyone wishing to make a trial of this
rcmedv before buying it in the regular
way or a druggist at uriy cents or one
dollar a large bottle (family size) can
have a sample bottle sent to the home
free of charge by simply addressing Dr.
W. B. Caldwell. 405 Washington Bt,.
