Better Than Calomel Thousands Have Discovered Dr. Ed ward's Olive Ta,blets- are a Harm less Substitute. Corsage Boquets for K of C Ball JOHN RECK & SON Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets the substitute for calomel are a mild but sure laxative, and their effect on the liver is almost . instantaneous. They are the result of Dr. Edwards' deter mination not to treat liver and bowel complaints'v.wfth calomel. His efforts to banish it brought out these little olive-colored tablets. - These pleasant little tablets do the good that calomel does but have no bad after effects. They don't injure the teeth like strong liquids or calomel. . They take hold of trouble and quickly correct it. Why cure the liver at the expense of the tssth?" Calomel sometimes plays havoc with the gums. So do strong liquids. It - is best .not to take calo mel, but to. let Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets take its place. Most . headaches, "dullness"- and that lazy feeling come from constipa tion and a disordered liver. Take Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets when you "loggy," and "heavy." Note how they "clear" clouded brain and how thy "perk up"- the spirits. At 10c and 25c per box. At all druggists. The Olive Tablet Co., Columbus, Ohio. Adv.
