Disagreeoble Calomel is yielding
to Pleasant Liv-Ver-Lax
Physicians generally agree that the
nauseating, unpleasant effects of calomel
are due to the undesirably violent
action it has on tr e system. For a long
while various substitutes have been
tried, but it was only recently that the
really wonderful remedy, LIY-YER
LAX, was prepared successfully by L. j
LIV-YER-LAX has all the good, and
none of the bad effects of calomel. It
is a necessity in every home, always
being ready to cleanse the sluggish
liver and bile clogg2d system, with no
unpleasant after effects.
LIY-YEB-LAX is guaranteed to give]
satisfaction, or your money will be immediately
refunded. Insist on the original
