It loosens all kinds of grease quick as a

better with Fels-Naptha than any other way.
It's easier, too; in summer or winter,
requires no boiling, hot water nor hard

One Million Dollars
For a Good Stomach
This Offer Should Be a Warn
ing to Every Man and
The newspapers and medical Jour
nals have had much to say relative
to a famous millionaire's offer of
a million dollars for a new stomach.
This great multi-millionaire was
too busy to worry about the condi
tion of his stomach. He allowed his
dyspepsia to run from bad to worse
until in the end It became incur
able. His misfortune should serve
as a warning to others. Every one
who suffers with dyspepsia for a
few years will give everything he
owns for a new stomach.
Dyspepsia is caused by an abnor
mal state of the gastric juices.
There is one element missing pep
sin. The absence of this destroys
the function of the gastric fluids.
They lose their power to digest
We are now able to supply the
pepsin in a form almost identical to
that naturally created by the sys
tem when In normal health, so that
it restores to the gastric juices their
digestive power, and thus makes the
stomach strong and well.
We want every one troubled with
indigestion and dyspepsia to come
to our store and obtain a box of
Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets. They con
tain blsmuth-subnitrate and pepsin
prepared by a process which devel
ops their greatest power to over
come digestive disturbance.
Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets are very
pleasant to take. They soothe the
irritable, weak stomach, strengthen
and invigorate the digestive organs,
relieve nausea and indigestion, pro
mote nutrition and bring about a
feeling of comfort.
If you give Rexall Dyspepsia Tab
lets a reasonable trial we will return
your money if you are not satisfied
with the result. Three sizes, 25 cents
50 cents and $1.00. Remember you
can obtain Rexall remedies in Rock
Island only at our store the Rexall

The best time to ret rid of Contatrioua Blood Poison is when the disease

after the poison has become established

S. S. S. is the greatest of all blood

Not only does S. S. S. cure cure Conta
