Think of the enormously
difficult task of having every
tablet of Cascarets of the
many millions of tablets sent
out to the world the same as
every other tablet,— equally
as dainty, sweet, palatable
and equally effective as a
medicine. v
Means Excellence of the
Think of nearly ONE HUNDRED MILLIONS of boxes of
Cascarets sold, in the last eleven years, all on the pure merit of
this wonderful preparation, and every tablet of nearly a BILLION
TABLETS having exactly the same Purity, Quality and Medi
cinal Merit as the rest of them. It is the PURITY OF PRO
CESS that made this seeming miracle possible—purity in the
sense of exactness, nicety, care and selection.
When, in 1896, Cascarets were first created, the purpose of its makers
was to make the best Bowel Remedy ever designed and compounded. The
preparation was to be pure and harmless, made by PURE PROCESSES,
' and sold under a pure promise that it would accomplish always what was
claimed, with the alternative of a guaranty or m0 ney refunded.
The grateful recommendation of hundreds of thousands of pleased
patrons who found Cascarets to be TRUE and dependable was by far the
greatest element in the promotion of their success. »
Now that the PURE FOOD AND DRUG ACT has gone into effect,
we cannot refrain from welcoming it for the benefit of the people, and at
the same time from claiming that we adopted OUR OWN PURE DRUGS
Act in 1896, and by steadfast adherence to the principles then set to guide
us, have convinced the world of the power of purity and truth as exem
plified by Cascarets, a pure, honest, harmless, reliable article for the pre
vention and alleviation of all diseases of the stomach and bowels.
What strenger argument than the favor of millions of satisfied friends,
of whom hundreds of thousands have been relieved of great sufferings, can
be offered to him or her who has not tried Cascarets when in trouble? The
slightest attack of irregularity, costiveness, colic, headache, flatulency, all
the signs of impending CONSTIPATION should be heeded as a warning,
and immediate recourse be taken to that great preventive of disease, Cas
carets. _ . , . . . . ■ .
The specific purpose of Cascarets is not alone as a treatment for the
cure of Constipation, but even more so, to keep the entire food-canal clean
and antiseptic, destroying all disease germs before they can form a lodg
ing and start their iniquitous activity.
Those who have never tried Cascarets. as an immediate laxative, a reli
able cathartic a positive preventive and the best all-around FAMILY
MEDICINE should go to their own druggist TODAY and buy a little
10c box sureJv not too risky an investment. They will be convinced and
added to our millions of friends. Be sure you get the kind you ask for—

Proprietors No Longer Make
Claims That Their Medicines
Wiif Accomplish Cures
Kver since January 1, veil en the new
pure food and drug law went Into ef
fect, the manufacturers of proprietary
nd patent medicines have been busy
with mucilage and brush pasting labels
on the bottles, boxes and cartons con
taining tholr preparations, which are
guaranteed to tell the truth, the whole
truth and nothing but the truth, about
what the packages contain.
The law Is very strict about the sale
of medicines and sets forth a long list
of restricted drugs which cannot tie sold
In mixtures unless the name and
amount of the restricted drug Is men
tioned In .bold type on the label on the
bottle or box In which the dcdlclne Is
contained. The law also says that de
scriptive matter aiipop the label shall bo
free from any statement, design or de
vice regarding tbe article or the Ingre
dients or substances contained therein,
or quality thereof, or place of origin,
which is false or misleading in any par
For the most part only supplement
ary labt's are being used at the present
time. Tha law gives the .manufactur
ers until October J, of this year to use
uip old labels Hurt may be on hand, and
only requires tt.a'j whenever any state
ment therein contained Is contrary to
the food and drug act as to character
of the contents It sliairU he corrected
by a supplemental label, stamp or pos
kSome medicine manufacturers,
however, have gotten out entirely now
labels, and these, as well as the little
strips used as supplemental labels, un
fold some Interesting things. In fact.
It Is remarkable what changes the law
has brought about. A reading of some
of these labels will convince anyone
that fey of the patent .medicines are
now claimed to possess half of the vir
tues which were nttrabuted to them
prior to the passage of the act.
Before the law was passed It was not
uncommon for the manufacturer of a
patent medicine to attrabnte to it the
ability to cure nearly every disease to
which human flesh is bclr. Now few of
the medicines are claimed to cure any
thing. In fact, the word eure has In
many Instances disappeared from la
bels altogether and the words "benofl
clty In the treatment of" have been In
serted In Its place. Some manufactur
ers of patent medicines, who formerly
called their preparations by such names
as "Headache Cure." "Liver Cure" and
like terms, no longer employ such word
ing, tout have substituted less preten
tious labels hearing the words "For
Headache" or "For the Liver," as the
case may be.
The clause requiring the name of any
rsetrlcted drug that may be used In the
manufacture of a bottle of medicine tp
be printed upon the label has also been
productive of many changes. Certain
medicines which formerly were war
hyl-nryooaof nau nau nau nau nnnnn
ranted not to contain any deleterious
or harmful Ingredients are now to be
seen on the market with labels guaran
teeing them to contain so much alcohol,
arsenic, opium or other tilings regarded
as equally dangerous. The law requires
only tfle name of the restricted drug to
appear on the label, and this has led
many medicine men to label their goods
as containing so much morphine and
other Ingredients or so much opium
and other Ingredients. Such labels
usuaillly create a curiosity In the reader
to know what the other Ingredients may
Just what effect the larw Is going ta
.have on the sale of medicine can on'y
be conjectured. There can toe tout little
douibt that certain medicines which
contain an excessive amount of the re
stricted drugs w 111 toe forced out of the
market. The average person abhors
taking remedies containing such Ingre
dients as morphine and opium, for fear
that the persistent Ise of the medicine
will create a desire within him for the
drug In Its pure state. The fact that
he has taken the medicine before and
that It has not made him a drug fiend
will probably have little effect. There
Is considerable difference In the minds
of most persons between knowingly
taking a preparation which contains
opium and taking It unknowingly.
As a great many medicines contain
or more of the restricted drugs, it
is more than probable that the sales
of such ns do will 'be maler.iaUy cut
down. Such, at least, la
the view
taken by many druggists who profus»
to see In the workings of the now law
falling off In the use of /patent medi
cines and a more general resort to -phy
sicians' proscriptions. Should this pre
«Jctlon prove correct. It will mean a de
cided Increase in the profit of the retail
druggist, who generally clears as much
a SScent prescription as he
nroney on
does on a dollar bottle of patent medl
For Instance, a certain person
heard complaining not long ago
because a druggist had charged him 35
cents for filling a prescription which
contained, only 15 drops of carbolic add.
30 drops of creollne and 4 ounces of
In this case It was said' the
druggist's profits on the medicine and
bottle must have been something like
400 per cent. The profit on a bottle of
.patent medicine sold at 81 is generally
about 33 1-3 per cent.
