dragged around the house.
“I got very thin. I went from a
hundred and twenty-six pounds
down to less than a hundred.
“My mother had long been a user
of Cardul. and she knew what a
good medicine it was for this trou
ble. So she told me to get some
and take it.
“I sent to the store for Cardul.
and before I had taken the first
bottle I began to Improve. My side
hurt less, and I began to mend in
health. I took the second bottle,
and felt much better. I followed
this by two more bottles.
“Cardul acted as a fine tonic. I
do not feel like the same person.
I am well now, and still gaining.
My sides do not trouble me at all.’*

WHY TRY TO HIDE ^
PIMPLES AND RASHES?
Why try to cover up unsightly pim
ples. rashes and other embarrassing skin
blemishes when it is possible to get rid
i of them completely?
The sensible and easy way to have
a clear, healthy skin is to go to your
\ druggist, ask for Black and White
Ointment and use it according to direc
tions. It is pleasant to use, highly I
beneficial and scientifically safe.
For best results use Black and White
Skin Soap with Black and Whitt Oint
ment- Ali dealers sell them at small cost.
