The Evil of Constipation are many; in fact, almost every serious ill ness has its origin in constipation, ond some medicines, instead of preventing con stipation, add to it. This is true of most cathartics, which, when first used, have a beneficial effect, but the dose has to be con tinually increased, and before long the rem edy ceases to hove the slightest effect. There is one preparation, however, that can be rei'ed upon to produce the same results with the same? dose, even after fifty yeara' daily use, and this is Brandreth's Pills, which has a record of over 100 years as the standard remedy for constipation and all troubles arising from an impure state of the blood. Brandreth's Pills are the same fine laxa tive tonic pill your grandparents used and can be found in every drug and medicine store, either plain or sugar-coated.
