Taking
a course of Ayer's Pills the
system is set in good working
order and a man begins to feel
that life is worth living. He
who lias become the gradual
prey of constipation, docs not
realize the friction under which
he labors, until the burden is
lifted from him. Then his
mountains sink into mole?
hills, his morosencss gives
place to jollity, he is a happy
man again. If life docs not
seem worth living to you, you
may take a very different view
of it after taking
Ayer's Cathartic Pills.
