EVER SALIVATED BY
CALOMEL? HORRIBLE!
Calomel is Quicksilver ami
Acts Like Dynamite tin
Your Liver.
(hilomcl loses \ on a dav!
Yoii know what calomel is. It's
mercifryj quicksilver. Calomel
is dang.'tons. It erashes into
sour bile like dynamite, cramp
ing and sickening yon. Calo?
mel attacks (he hones ami
should never he put into your
sy .-lem.
When you fool bilious, slug,
gisb, constipated and all knock
ed out ami believe you need a
dose of dangerous calomel just
reineniber that your druggist
sells for ?d cents a large bottle
of Dodsou's Liver Tono, which
is entirely vegetable and pleas,
ant lo lake and is a perfect sub?
stitute for Calomel. It is guar?
anteed to start your liver with?
out stirring you up inside, und
can not salivate.
Don'i take calomel! It make*
you sick the next day; it loses
you a day's work. Dodsou's
Liver Tone straightens you
right up and you feel great,
(live it to the children because
it is perfectly harmless and
doesn't gripe.?-adv.
