ticello. 111., a practicing physician
for 47. years, it seemed cruel that
so many constipated intants and
children had to be kept "stirred
up" and half sick by taking, ca
thartic pills, tablets, salts, calomel
and nasty oils. j
While he knew that constipa
tion was Jtho cause of nearly all
children's little ills, he constantly
advised mothers to give only a
harmless laxative which would
help to establish natural bowel
In Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pep
sin mothers have a regulating
laxative which they can depend
upon; whenever a child is consti
pated, bilious, feverish or sick
from a cold Indigestion or sour
stomach. All children love Us

any store that sells medicines," and
just see for jourselt how perfectly
it cleanses and regulates the bow
