KEEP LOOKING YOUNG

The secret of keeping young is to
feel young—to do this you must watch
your liver and bowels —there's no need
of having a sallow complexion—dark
j rings under your eyes—pimples—a bil
! ions look in your face—-dull eyes with
I no sparkle.
Your doctor will tell you ninety per
| cent, of all sickness comes from inac-
I tive bowels and liver.
| Or. Edwards, a well-known physician
j in Ohio, perfected a vegetable com
; pound mixed with olive oil to act on the
I liver and bowels, which he gave to his
patients for years.
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets, the sub
stitute for calomel, are gentle in their
action, yet always effective.
They bring about that exuberance of
spirit, that natural buoyancy which
' should be enjoyed by everyone, by ton-
