take the place of those that have
gone dry, become sick or died.

for them, keep up tho stable, pay his

In no part of the body are tho effects of
constipation more quickly noticed than in
the condition of tho eyes. When you see
a yellowish tinge in the whites of the eyes
It shows that the poisonous bile pervades
the whole system ; but it Is the specks and
flitting objects lu the vision itself that aro
even mote quickly apparent. Thousands
of people "see things"; their vision U
blurred, floating specks and spots which
seem almon real pass before the eyes.
Such conditions can always be traced to a
torpid liver and a conjested condition of
the bowels. The only thing to do is to
take Smith's Pineapple and Butternut Pills,
which cure constipation as If by magic.
They regulate tho functions of the liver,
remove tho bilious elements from the cir
culation and strengthen the nerves. II
your eyes are clouded, If you have specks
and floating objects before your vision,
use Smith's Pineapple and Butternut Pills
and get the poisonous elements out of
your blood. Physicians use and recom
mend. They form no habit. You should
always keep them on hand. These little
