CERTILAX (The Certified
. Laxative).
Beware of the habit of constipation..
Coax the overworked bowel muscles
back to normal action with CERTI
LAX, "the certain laxative." It is the
favorite prescription of an eminent
New York City specialist, selected by
five hundred physicians, who have
tried out thousands of laxatives and
decided upon CERTILAX as the best.
They believe in gentleness, persisten
cy, and Nature's assistance. CERTI
LAX opens the bowels; their action
is gentle yet positive, never accom
panied by griping or pain. One at
night- will give positive relief. CER
