I Guarantee "Dodson's Liver Tone" Will Give You the Best Liver
and Bowel Cleansing You Ever Had—Doesn't Make You Sick!

pid and bowels constipated or you

tongue, if breath is bad or stomach
sour just try a spoonful of harmless
Dodson's Liver Tone.

drug store or dealer and get a 50-cent
bottle of Dodson's Liver Tone. Take a
spoonful aad if it doesn't straighten
you right up and make you feel tins

the store and get your money Dod-
son's Liver Tone is destroying the
sale of calomel because it is real liver
medicine; entirely vegetable, therefore
it cannot salivate or make you sick.

Dodson's Liver Tone will put your
sluggish liver to work and clean your
bowels of that sour bile and consti-
pated waste which is clogging yout
system and making yoa feel miserable.

with much interest the remarkable record
