Charcoal is a remedy that the more
you take of it Un better; it is not a
drug at all, but simply absorbs tho
gases and impurities always present
ir, the stomacu and intestines and car
ries them out of the system.
Charcoal sweetens the breath after
emoldng, ,drlnking or after eating
onions and other odorous vegetables.
Charcoal effectually clears and im
proves the complexion, it whitens the
tteth and further acts as a natural
and eminently safe cathartic.
It absorbs the injurious gases which
collect in the stomach and bowels; It
disinfects the mouth and throat from
the poison of catarrh.
All druggists sell charcoal in one
form or another, but probably the best
charcoal and the most for the money
is in Stuart's Absorbent Lozenges;
tbey are composed of the finest pow
dered Willow charcoal, and other
harmless antiseptics in tablet form or
rather in the form of large, pleasant
tasting lozenges, the charcoal being
mixed with honey.
The daily use of these lozenges will
soon tell in a much improved condi
tion of the -general health, better com
plexion, sweeter breath and purer
blood, and the beauty of It is, that
no possible harm can result from their
continued use, but on the contrary,
