Then you have a bad taste in your mouth every morning. Your appetite is poor, and food dis tresses you. You have frequent headaches and are often dizzy. Your stomach is weak and your bowels are always constipated. There's an old and re liable cure: Don't take a cathartic dose and then stop. Bet ter take a laxative dose cach night, just enough to cause one good freemove ment the day following. You feel better the very next day. Your appetite returns, your dyspepsia is cured, your headaches pass away, your tongue clears up, your liver acts well, and your bowels no longer give you trouble. Price, 25 cents.

There was much concern in-town yes terday on account of a painful re port that Mr. R. C.
