CALOMEL SALIVATES AND MAKES YOU SICK Acts Like Dynamite on a Sluggish Liver * and You Lose a Day’s Work There’s no reason why a per son should take sickening, sali vating calomel when 50 cents buys a large bottle of Dodson’s Liver Tone—a perfect substitute for calomel It is a pleasant vegetable liquid which will start your,liver just as surely as calomel, but it doesn’t make you sick and cannot sal ivate. . Children and grown folks take Dodson’s Liver Tone, because it i9 perfectly harmless. Calomel is a dangerous drug.1 It is mercury and attacks your bones. Take a dose of nasty calomel today and you will feel weak, sick and nauseated to morrow. Don’t lose a day’s work. Take a spoonful of Dod son’s Liver Tone instead and you will wake up feeling great. No more biliousness, constipation, sluggishness, headache, coated tongue or sour stomach. Your druggist says if you don’t find Dodson’s Liver Tone acts better than horrible calomel your mon ey is waiting for you. 3 Commissioner's Sale Ex Parte Petition vs. Mrs. Fannie Long, et. al.
