You run no risk in buying Martin's
Liver Medicine. It is a recognized
standard preparation, made according
to the prescription of a prominent
Southern physician. It is composed
of absolutely pure drugs and is guar
anteed to give positive satisfaction.
If after taking a bottle of it you are
dissatisfied with the result, carry the
empty bottle to your druggist and
you will receive your 50c back.
If your druggist hasn't Martin's
Liver Medicine,' he can easily get it
for you. Do not accept any substi
tute. There is no other medicini
"just as good." "
