Ask any physician or druggist and ho
will tell you that the first step in the
treatment of a cold, cough, influenza
or grippo should Invariably be "a brisk
calomel purgative, preferably the
nausealess calomel, called Calotabs"
This alone is often sulllcient to break
tip a severe cold over night, or cut
short an attack of grippe and possibly
prevent pneumonia.
One Calotah on the tonguo at bed
time with a swallow of water?that's
all. No salts, no nausea nor the slight
est interference with your eating,
pleasures or work. Next morning your
cold has vanished and your entire sys
tem is purified and refreshed. Calo
tabs are sold only In orlginnl sealed

Tost-ollice records at South Bend are :

GREAT BELIEVER
IN BLACK-DRAUGHT
Oklahoma Lady Tells How Her
Husband Believes in Black
Draught and Uses It For
Many Ailments.
Nowata, Okla.?Mrs. W. B. Daw
son, a resident of thia place, says:
"My husband is a great believer in
Black-Draught and thinks it cures
about everything.
It is splendid for malaria, head- i
ache, constipation (which usually !
causes headache), indigestion, or any :
kind of stomach trouble, and we .
Just keep it for these troubles. 1
don't know when we haven't used it,
and we always find it satisfactory.
I know it lias done us both a lot
of good and saved us many dollars.
1 use it in teaspoon doses at first
and follow with small doses, and it
sure does make a person feel like
new.
it cleanses the liver better than ,
any other liver tonic I have ever
used, and after taking a thorough
course nature asserts itself and you
are not left in a constipated condi
tion that follows a lot of other active
medicines. This is ono thing I like
especially about It."
For over 70 years Thed ford's
Black-Draught has been in uso for
many simple ailments and today is a
recognized standard remedy in thous
ands of family medicine chests. It
will pay you to keep Black-Druught
in tho bouse for use when needed.
Your druggist sells it.?Adv.
