the most famous family remedy the world knows the safe,
vegetable, and always efficient Beecham's Pills. In every
family some one is sure to have the dull and heavy feelings,
the headaches, the grouchiness, the nervousness which are
signs of a disordered stomach, of a torpid liver, of inactive
bowels. These troubles won't amount to much if Beecham's
Pills are taken in time.
Wherever Beecham's Pills are known and used there is
less growling, food tastes better and gives more nourishment
people are better able to do their work and find more
enjoyment in life.
These matchless aids to health, strength and better feelings, tone
the stomach, stir the liver, regulate the bowels, clear the sysfcm of
poisonous bile. Besides, the dull eyes, the sallow skin, the pimples
which afflict so many women take their leave when
the blood is made purer and richer.
