Says She Was Saved
I
From Operating Table
Brother mid Sister Both Relieved
by Simple Remedy Available
to Any One.
In her j; ra li tu do for ar-remedy that
saved her from tho possible necessity
for an operation, Airs. Carrie Hobin,
of Coats, Kans., writes: "Had lt uot
been for Fr ult ol a and Traxo t might
have boen on the operating table by
now. It relieved me of at leajt one
hundred and fifty gall stones. It
surely does work wonders. My
brother also had suffered for years
and has been ; greatly be ned ted by
Fruitoia and Traxo."
Fruitoia is a powerful lubricant for
the intestinal' organs, softening the
congested messes, disintegrating tho
hardened particles that cause so much
suffering and expels the accumulation
in an easy,- natural way. Traxo is a
splendid tonic, acting on the liver and stomach with most beneficial result? |
and IB recommended for use in connection With Fruitoia to build up and re
store the weakened, run-down system.
Fruitoia and Traxo aro prepared In the Plnus laboratories at Monticello,
111., and arrangements have been made to supply them through representativo
druggists.. In Anderson they can be obtained at Evans* Pharmacy, Turco
Stores. . ' '
