Ordinary Cathartics and Pills and
Harsh Physic Cause Distress
You cannot be over-careful In the se
lection of medicine for children. Only
the very gentlest bowel medicine
should ever be given, except in emer
gency cases. Ordinary pills, cathartics
and purgatives are apt to do more
harm than good. They may cause
griping, nausea and other distressing
after-effects that are frequently health-
We personally recommend and guar
antee Rexall Orderlies as the safest
and most dependable remedy, which
we know, for constipation and asso
ciate bowel disorders. We have such
absolute faith in the virtues of this
remedy that we sell It on our guaran
tee of money back In every Instance
where it falls to give entire satisfac
tion, and we urge all In need of such
medicine to try it at our risk.
Rexall Orderlies are eaten Just like
candy, are particularly prompt and
agreeable in action, may be taken at
any time, day or night; do not cause
diarrhoea, nausea, griping, excessive
looseness, or other undesirable effects.
They have a very mild but positive
action upon the organs with which
they come in contact, apparently act
ing as a regulative tonic upon the re
laxed muscular coat of the bowel, thus
overcoming weakness, and aiding to
restore the bowels to more vigorous
and healthy activity.
Rexall Orderlies commonly complete
ly relieve constipation, except of course
when of a eurgical character. They also
tend to overcome the necessity of con
stantly taking laxatives to keep the
bowels in normal condition. Three sizes
of packages, 10 cents, 25 cents, and SO

S. S. S. is the best treatment (or Catarrh because it fa a perfect blood
jmrifier. It is the only medicine that is able to get down into the circula
tion and entirely remove the catarrhal matter ana impurities which produce
the trouble. As long as the mucous membranes and tissues are kept inflamed
and irritated by this impure and infected condition of the blood Catarrh will
remain. Its disagreeable and dangerous symptoms, of ringing noises in the
ears, mucus dropping back into the throat, headaches, watery eyes, difficult
breathing, and even stomach disorders and weakened health, cannot be perma
nently relieved until the blood is purified. Nothing equals S. S. S. for this
purpose. It goes down to the very root of the trouble, and removes every
particle of the catarrhal matter from the blood and enriches this vital fluid. e
that all the mucous surfaces are supplied with nutritive, healthful qualities, in
stead of being constantly irritated and inflamed by impurities in the circula
tion. Then the symptoms begin to pass away and when 8. S. S. has entirely
purified the blood. Catarrh is permanently cured and the general heal til
greatly built up. Book on Catarrh and any medical advice desired sent free
