CALDWELL LEARNED IN 47 YEARS PRACTICE A physician watched the results e constiltion for 47 years, and believed that no matter how careful people are of their health, diet and exorcise, constipa- tion ,rill occur from time to me. 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 possible, hence his remedy for consti- patina, known as Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, is a mild vegetable compound. It can not harm the system and is not habtt forming. Syrup Pepsin is pleasant- tasting, and youngsters love it. Dr. Caldwell did not approve of drastic physics and purges. He did not believe they were good for anybody's system. In a practice of 47 years he never saw any reason for their use when Syrup Pepsin will empty the bowels just as promptly. Do not let a day go by without bowel movement. Do not sit and hope, but go to the nearest druggist and get one of the generous bottles of Dr. Ca]d- well's Syrup Pepsin. or write "Syrup Pepsin," Dept.
