Dr. Caldwell watched the re
sults of constipation for 47 years,
and believed that no matter how
careful people are of their hearth,
Siet and exercise, constipation will
occur from time to time regardless
of how much one tries to avoid it.
Of next Importance, then, is how
to treat It when it comes. Dr.
Caldwell always was in favor of
getting as close to nature as pos
sible, hence his remedy tor consti
pation, known aa Dr. Caldwell's
Syrup 'Pepsin, is a mild vegetable
compound. It can not harm the
most delicate system and it not
a habit firming preparation. Syr
up Pepsin Is pleasant-tasting, and
youngsters love it. It does not
gripe. Thousands of mothers
have written us to that effect.
Dr. Caldwell did not approve of
drastic physics and 'purges. He
lid not believe they were good for
human beings to put into their
systems. In a practice of 4? years
he never saw any reason tor their
use when medicine like Syrup
Pepsin will empty the bowels Just
as promptly, more cleanly and
gently, without griping and harm
to the system.
Keep free from constipation! t

Here's relief and comfort for
crying, fretful, feverish babies or
children that you don't need to
urge or command them to take.
They love the delicious taste of
Fletcher's Castoria. Your doctor
will tell you it's absolutely safe, so
you can give it as freely and as
often as needed to keep your chil
dren happy and well. A few drops
is all it takes to quiet fretful, fev
erish, colicky babies; relieve their
biliousness, gas on stomach, con
stipation, etc.; soothe them to
sleep in a Jiffy. For like disor
ders in older children, you simply
use a little larger dose of the same
reliable Fletcher's Castoria. Don't
use grown-folks' medicine; with
babies or children, specialists say.
Ninety per cent of them recom
mend Fletcher's Castoria; and
thirty years of steadily increasing
popularity proves they're right.
