stantine Murder Case.
Chicago, Sept. 19.The opening
statements of the attorneys were made
during the day in the trial of Frank J.
Constantine, charged with the murder
of Mrs. Louise Gentry.
It was claimed by Assistant State's
Attorney Holt that it would be shown
that Constantine was admitted as a
roomer in the Gentry apartments on
the representation that he was the son
of a wealthy New York merchant and
saying that he had been sent by his
father on a trip around the world.
Mr. Holt declared the state will prove
that Constantine borrowed money
from the Gentrys and neglected to re
pay it. He said the evidence will show
that, on the day before the murder of
Mrs. Gentry, she had said to herThe
mother that on the following day she
intended to tell Constantine unless he
paid the borrowed money he must
leave their apartmects and she fur
ther declared she intended to tell him
that she would cause his arrest. It
will be shown, Mr. Holt said, that
Constantine murdered the woman

No doubt you have heard of them. They are used
by several millions of people throughout the United
States, and we sell them to you with a guarantee
that if they are not* what we claim we will gladly
refund your money. One remedy for each human ill.
Some three years ago a number of prominent retail druggists realizing that a big change was to be made in the
proprietary medicine business, that the public demanded to know what the ingredients were of the preparations they
were advertising, and that a general reform was about to take place in proprietary medicine manufacturing and advertis-
ing formed a co-operative company to meet the public's demand. This company was.called The United Drug Co.,
of which the undersigned has become one of the two thousand members.
Our object was, first, to manufacture a line of prescriptions such as we had tried out in our stores and found to give
the very best of results and second, by owning our own co-operative manufacturing company we would be able to know
the exact formula of every preparation we were selling, thus enabling us to give to the public the very best remedies we
could find at actual manufacturing cost, plus a single retail profit.
This enabled The United Drug Company to escape the heavy charges for advertising and other expenses such as
have to be paid by proprietary remedies. What was most important, it insures safety and satisfaction to our customers,
because we druggists know just what we are selling.
A committee of experts was appointed who spent along time in testing the merits of more than two thousand form-
ulas and prescriptions recommended by the various druggists constituting the company.
From these, about two hundred were selected as being the best remedies known to medical science for the
cure, each of its particular ailment.
The exclusive rights to these remedies were then transferred to The United Drug Company, which has since manu-
factured them in its superbly equipped laboratories in Boston under the now famous name of" The Rexall Remedies."
The United Drug Company, which manufactures the Rexall Remedies, has already scored the greatest success ever
known in the history of the drug business.
Note, then, first of all, these facts:

ed*and proved success, selected for
its conspicuous merit from many of
its class. All had established reputa

physicians before: they became mem

FOR NERVES-AMERICANITIS ELIXIR
The Rexall Americanitis Elixir is a tonic
nerve food composed chiefly of free Phos
phorus, Glycophosphates, Iron Pyrophos
phate and Calisaya.
The wonderful results of this remedy are,
due to the fact that it supplies Phosphorus
to the nerve cells in a condition in which it
can be immediately and easily taken up by
them. It is the only known preparation in
which free Phosphorusthat is, Phosphorus
which remains indefinitely unoxidized is
.used., l- '.'^Jj\r
The Glycophosphates, actual nerve-tissue
builders, are one of the most recent and valu
able additions to the field of this branch of
medicine and unquestionably a more efficient
remedythan the well-known Hypophosphites.
The Iron Pyrophosphates is the most
easily assimilated form of iron which gives
tone, and color, and the combined alkaloids
of Calisaya Bark have a tonic effect on
almost all the functions of the body.
In compounding these various elements,
the very highest degree of pharmaceutical
skill has been employed. 75c. and $1.50 a
