FOR THE RELIEF
DR. M. A. SIMMONS
is an old reliable remedy
It is quick-acting and thorough in
driving out bilious impurities in
the stomach, liver and bowels.
When the system hasbeen cleansed
of this bilious matter; indigestion,
dizziness, bad taste in the mouth
and that drowsy, tired feeling will
quickly disappear, bringing back
a fine sensation of vim and ex
hilaration of mind and body. It
is one of the most effective system
purifiers on earth. Dr. M. A.
Simmons' Liver Medicine is now
put up in a handsome litho
graphed tin box. Look for the
