The question has been asked-In
what way are Chamberlain’s Tablets
superior to the ordinary cathartic and
liver pills? Our answer is, they are
easier and more pleasant to take and
their effect is so gentle that one hard

medicine. Then, they not only move
the bowels but improve the appetite
and strengthen the digestion.

Mrs. Long contradicts her husband

Mrs. Long said further that her hus
