IF YOUR BOWELS DONT ACT RIGHT READ THIS we oeiieve your uocior wm leu you that about ninety-five per cent of all human ills are Indirectly caused by un clean and constipated bowels. You know the first question the doctor asks Is. "Are your bowels regular?" To make and keep your bowels reg ular. use Rexall Orderlies.

We back this belief with our honest promise that, if they do not satisfy you in every way. we will give back the money you paid for them as soon as you tell us. Rexall Orderlies taste like candy. Soothing and easy in action, they do not cause griping, nausea, purging or excessive looseness, as do most phy sics and especially salts. They tone and strengthen the nerves and muscles of the bowels, promptly relieving con stipation and helping overcome its cause, thus relieving sick headache, biliousness, bad health, nervousness and other ills attendant upon Inactive bowels. In vest pocket tin boxes; 10c, 26c and 50 cents. You can buy Rexall Orderlies only at The Rexall Stores, and in this town only of us. Willian Britt, Juneau and Skagway. Alaska.
