That Is Free From Danger of
Salvation, la the Ideal Laxa-
tive for Colds and Flu.
Keep your liver active, your sys
tem purified and your digestive or
gans in perfect working order. That
is the advico of physicians as to how
to avoid influenza and serious com
plications. At the first sign of a
cold or sore throat, take a Calotab,
the perfected calomel that is free
"from the nausoating and salivating
qualities of the old style calomel, and
whose medicinal properties are vast
ly improved.
One Calotab at bed time with a
cwallow of water that's all. No
salts, no nau3ea, nor tho slightest in
terference with your eating, pleasure,
or work. Next morning your cold
has vanished, your liver is active,
system is purified and you are feeling
fine, with a her-rty appetite for
breakfast. Calotabs are sold only in
original sealed packages, price thirty
ifive cents. Your druggist recom
mends and guarantees Calotabs by
offering to refund the price if you
.are not delighted with them. (adv.)
