Loss of Appetite.
As a general rule there is nothing
serious about a loss of appetite, and
if you skip a meal or only eat two
meals a day for a few days you will
;oon have a relish for your meals
yhci. meal time corns. Bear in mind
;hat at least five hours should always
?lapse between meals so as to give
;he food ample time to digest and
;he stomach a period of rest before a .
second meal is taken. Then if you .
?at no more than you crave and take
i reasonable amount of outdoor, ex
ercise every day, you will not need 1
;o worry about your appetite. When (
me loss of appetite is caused by con
stipation as is often the case, that
should be corrected at once. A dose
>f Chamberlain's Tablets will do it. 1
