Mild Laxative for Baby Free The child of today is the parent of the future, and whether it grows up healthy and strong, or puny and weak, depends upon the intelligence of its parents, for most children are born into the world healthy, but thousands become future weaklings between birth and the age of ten, when the parents are still in greatest control. The prime cause of trouble is in the stomach. A baby that is digesting Its food seldom cries and always looks cheer ful; the little child whose stomach is good romps and plays and never whines; the growing child learns well at school and is eager for fun if its head is clear and its 6tomach light, and that means if it ha3 no constipation. The best and safest way to cure any Irregularity of the stomach and bowels In children is by the use of Dr Caldwell s Syrup Pepsin. This is a liquid laxative wonderful in its effect as Mrs. John \V. Dunham, Apple Creek, O., Mrs H. D. Cullam, Plainville, Ind, and numerous others can testify who give It to their children with extraordinary results. A bottle only costs 50 cents or $1 ac cording to the size you want, and even one 50-cent bottle will do a wonderful amount of good in a family. It can ba given to any member of the family in constipation, sour stomach, indigestion, torpid liver, dyspepsia, heartburn, sick headache and similar digestive troubles. It never gripes or strangles like pill*, tablets, salts and powders, which should not be given to children, women or old folks. If you have a child or other member of the familv who needs but has never used this grand laxative tonic, send your name and address to the doctor and a free trial bottle will be sint to your home. In this way you tan find out what it will do without personal expense. If there is anything anout your ailment that you don't understand, or if you want any medical advice, write to the doctor, and lie will answer you fully. Then is no charge for this serve:'!.
