Constipation is one of man's worst
enemies, and half the bodily ills we
suffer from are a result thereof. Na

kept free and open that we should
have a free movement at least once a
day. Of course we ourselves are to a
large extent responsible for our trou

I laws. Our habits are irregular, we eat I
improper food with undue baste, and!
when we find our bowels do not move.
have resort to powerful drugs and
medicines, which are so drastic in
their action that, although they may
purge at first, they damage the tender
lining of the stomach and bowels so
as to leave a worse condition than
before. And why take such injurious
and expensive drugs when we can ob
tain from any druggist, much cheaper.
