\ few years a;o the famnu? scientist. Prof.
Meiehnlkoff. declared that people centrally dr
?r?ine decrepit?feeble?aged, years and years
before their time?that a person ought to live
w?>l! over a hundred years. He devoted a long
life to scientific experiments and proved that
th?? toxic poisons which form in the intestines
and cause autointoxication?that is. self-pois
oning? had more to do with shortening life
than anything else. Clean out these poisons
nnd there is no reason why human beings
should not live hale, hearty, strong and vigor
ous a hundred years or more. Such is the
doctrine as taught by the noted Metchnikoff.
What causes those toxic poisons, you ask?
\\ here do they come from?how do they get
into the Intestinal tract?
Science gives us an answer in one word?
sup*-racidity?which is merely the medical
name for what is more commonly known as
Too much aeid in the stomach interferes
with proper digestion of food. Instead, it fer
ments: and it is this mass of partially digested,
four, fermenting food passing through the in
testines that creates those toxic poisons?poisons
that are absorbed into the blood causing it to
become thin, pale and sluggish?poisons that
are carried into every part of the system?
poisons that cause a long train of diseases and
make millions of men and women feeble, hag
gard and old-looking before their time, when
by right they should be strong, healthy, in the
prime of life.
Common sense tells us that in order to stop
those toxic poisons forming in the intestines,
you must rid the stomach of excess acid. The
food you eat must be properly digested and as
similated. and not allowed to enter the intes
tines a sour, fermented mass, there to become a
breeding place for countless millions of germs?
for these germs are in reality what make the
V way has been found for removing the ex
cess acid from the stomach so quickly, naturally,
easily, that it seems almost unbelievable. The
removal of the excess acid .is done by an ab
sorbent remedy?much the same as you take up
a blot of ink with blotting paper.
This modern remedy is called EATONIC, in
the form of compressed tablets, that you e?t
like a bit of candy. It is prepared to absorb the
harmful acid and carry it away through the
bowels. It drives the bloat out of the body.
You can fairly feel it work. This leaves the
stomach sweet, cool and strong. As the excess
aeid is taken away, it aids digestion and assimi
lation and so helps you get full strength out of
every mouthful of food you cat. In cases of
indigestion, heartburn, bloat, belching, gassy,
sour stomach, food-repeating and that miser
able puffed up feeling after eating, EATONIC
affords almost instant relief.
It is not intended that EATONIC is in any
sense suggested as a direct cure for catarrh,
ulcer and cancer of the stomach, cirrhosis of
the liver, autointoxication, anemia, emaciation,
nervousness, mental depression, headache and
other serious disorders arising from super
acidity. But EATONIC positively doe* clean out
the excess acid. And never lose sight of the
fact that it is excess acid?acid-stomach?which
is the starting cause, so great food scientists
say, of all those physical and mental ills.
You havft a right to enjoy perfect health,
pat the things you like without the slightest
fear of ill after effects, feel fine and fit and be
at your best?physically and mentally?every
hour of the day, every day of the year and from
one year's end to the other. You ought to sleep
soundly and get up in the morning refreshed,
ready and eager to plunge into your day's work,
joyous, enthusiastic. Rut do you always feel
that way? If you don't there's something the
matter?something that's slowing you down and
holding you back. Look- to your acid-stomach.
See if you can't locate the sour<^, of all the
trouble right there. For the chances are that
you have an acid-stomach?and you can't be
well and strong, and retain your hold on youth
until ypu set rid of It!
EATONIC has been the salvation of thou
sands in putting their acid-stomach to rights.
It will do the same for you. Surely it is worth
