9 Saves Health of Old Peoole Trial Free j A healthy old couple who have lived a long life together make an Ideal picture. But unfortunately so many old people have a dismal life.' Even it they are otherwise in good health they seem to- Buffer from constipation and indigestion. It la the penalty of old age. To old people, the beat advice is Be careful of your food. But even that is not all. The etomach and bowel muscles are no longer as active aa they used .to be and on that account movement of the bowels is more difficult. To aid nature take a mild laxative like Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin when ever you find yourself becoming constipated or when you have any difficulty digesting your food. It is not strong like salts or purgatives, . but is mild, gentle and non-griping just what elderly people need. It is the best laxative for old people, as it is for women and children. Many men and women far beyond seventy have been able to discard all med icines after a brief use of Syrup Pepsin. The regular buttles can be obtained of any druggist at fifty cents or one dollar, but we suggest that you make a free trial of It first, aa so many others have done. Send your address to Dr. Caldwell and he will send you a free sample bottle. LMk tn Tkl. M n rtg. Dr. Caldwell does not feel that the purchase of his remedy ends his obligation. He has specialized in stomach, liver and bowel diseases for over forty years and will be pleased to (r've the reader any ad vice on the t ubject free of charge. All are welcome to write him. Whether for the medical advice or the free sample address him Dr. W. B. Caldwell, 541 Caldwell Build ing, Monticello, 111. The following are some extracts from letters Or. Caldwell has received "Tour free sample bottle came in due time and I was so gratified withi results that I bought a larger bottle and am so In favor of its effects that I am putting- others on the track to get relief. I am 79 years old and have been trou bled with a torbld liver, but feel that I now have the right remedy and will no longer have the trouble. Also acts with out inconvenience." Mrs. W. H. Carter, Maywood, 111. "I am 73 years old ; have been seriously afflicted with heart trouble for over 16 years, unable to do anything dur ing that time; have spent all I had doctoring with several local doctors and many specialists all to no purpose. My case Is a very hard one and incurable; constipation of a very serious nature. I would, for years, go from three to five days without a movement; would take pills, salts, etc., until I was entirely tired of life. Have tried everything. I saw your ad; sent for free sample of Syrup Pepsin, received it and it did me so much good that I got a 50c bottle and have taken It as per directions regularly; shall get another bottle today. IT HAS DONE MB A WORLD OF GOOD. It is the nicest to take and the most effective of any rem edy I have ever used. It is simply a god-send to me." A. A. Lewis, R. 2, Box 61, Bentonvllle, Ark. "I received your free sample of Syrup Pepsin and have taken it and am now taking a fLOO bottle. It is doing me a great deal of good. I have had trouble more or less with my stomach ever since I left the army, but have never taken very much medicine for It, but the sample you sent me did me so much good I thought I would give it a trial. It is helping me and I shall continue to take it. I can recom mend it to any one having stomach trouble and heart trou ble." Geo. S. Spauldlng, Nat. Soldiers' Home, Kansas. "I have tried your Syrup Pepsin and found it all that you claim. I am recommending it to the old veterans and they are buying It on my word. I shall use it as long as I live. . I cannot praise it enough.' Enoa Gilpin, National 8oldiers' Home, Danville, 111. YOUNG ORATORS HERE.
