Constipation is the father of all manner
of malaUica. If it did not exist, or was in
all cases promptly relieved, the majority of
medical books could be safely destroyed.
It is the easie-t sickness to neglect and the
simplest to cure. Pr. Pierce's rieasant
Pellets curt constipation every time. They
cure it promptly, completely and perma

me that your medicine la just what it is said to
