An Appeal For Your Children
Look back at your childhood days.
Remember the physic that mother insisted on castor
oil, salts or cathartics.
How you hated them. How you fought them. Howj
you dreaded their after-effects.
That was all wrong, but then nobody knew better.
With our children it's different.
The day of harsh physics is over.
We don't force the bowels now; we coax them. >
We have no dreaded after-effects.
And the dose is a candy tablet.
Mothers who cling to the old form of physic simplyj
don't know what they do.
The children's revolt is well-founded.
Their tender bowels are harmed by them.
The modern way is to give a gentle laxative more
frequently. To keep the bowels always active.
The best method is Cascarets.
Cascarets are candy tablets.
Children love their pleasant taste.
They cost only 10 cents a lx>x, with full directions
for children's dosage at all ages. Babies too!
Give Cascarets, then don't worry—they never disappoint. 1
