No one can reasonably hope for
good health unless his bowels move
each day. When this is not attended
to, disorders of the stomach arise,
biliousness, headache dyspepsia and
piles soon follow. If you wish to
avoid these ailments keep jour
bowels regular by taking "Chamber
lain's Stomach and Liver Tablets
when required. They are so easy to
take and mild and gentle in effect.
For sale by all druggists.
If you would have an appetite like
a bear and a relish for your meals
take Chamberlain's Stomach and Liv
er Tablets. They correct disorders
of the stomach and regulate the liver
and bowels. Price, 25 cents; Samples
free, at oil drug stores.
