and pleasant in action, and particularly
agreeable in every way. They
do not cause diarrhoea, nausea, flatulence,
griping, or any convenience
whatever. Rexall Orderlies are particularly
good for children, aged and

You can get along without taking
calomel yourself or giving it to your

Dodson's Liver-Tone is a pure, harmloss

TJver-Tone does not stimulate the
liver too much. It cures constipation
gently instead of making you more
bilious than you were at first, and it
can 110 more salivate you than a tablespoonful
of maple syrup can salivate
Dodson's Liver-Tone has given such
perfect satisfaction to every person to
whom W. G. Mayes has sold a bottle
that this store will give the money
back to any person who buys a bottle
and does not find it a perfect substitute
for calomel. It is worth something
